I'm a mother of 3 kids ages 3-6! I love to read but don't have the time. I found that audiobooks are the thing for me! I can't get enough
I was somewhat apprehensive of starting something new. I am so in love with the BDB series and I just didn't know if these would measure up! Very pleasantly surprised was I. I can't wait to get the next one!!!
I have listened to a few and this rates in the middle
the narrator is GREAT
I never got interested in the story... sorry.
hey I stopped listening to it... doesn't that tell you enough
I didn't listen to enough to have an opinion.
See above comments.
What's to say, I didn't like it.
Hard, Sexy, Dark
Though this series is set in the same city as the BDB there are only a passing mention of vampires in this series. I am betting that J.R. will have paths crossing in the future but it hasn???t happened much yet.
This book has the same hard and dark style as her other works but it is original enough to spark interest. The characters are stimulating and freaking sexy. Ward built a great plot and filled it with characters that you get invested in. She sprinkles in just the right amount of sex to make the books naughty but not so much that you start fast forwarding. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the dark side of fantasy romance
It was great to read about other areas of Caldwell. One of the characters from Rhev's old club made a star appearance and it was quite well received. My main issue with the book was the narrator. I thought I was spoiled by not hearing Jim Frangione (I was) but it was more than that with this book. The narrator did make vocal changes to indicate when characters were speaking but he never added any depth to the characters. The true test was the reading of the sensual scenes. The narrator was not involved in any of the words being read. No depth, no passion, no emotion, NOTHING to bring the listener in to engage with the other senses to bring the story alive. I missed whole chapters because I kept dozing off during the narration. Eric Dove sounded like a very good computer generated voice and this is not a good quality when reading suspenseful works.
I strongly suggest that readers avoid this narrator for this series and read the print version. Your own imagination will provide the vividness needed to engage with the characters.
Award-winning blind author who enjoys listening to books as much as she does writing them.
J.R Ward did not disappoint me. I was expecting something rather similar to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I was pleasantly surprised to discover something entirely different but with the same witty charm that can only be J.R Ward. I love her descriptions, dialog, and characters who suck me into their world.
Marie. I loved her charm and her inner guilt about what she had done with her life. She had an inner strength about her and held her head high, even though she wasn't pleased with who she had become.
I also loved Vin, and the way he treated Marie. He was strong, had street smarts, and knew about drinking good beer.
Jim was also a great character. I loved how he never wanted a dog, but he showed compassion for one that desperately needed it.
No, this is the first. It took me a while to get into his style, but then I really enjoyed his voice.
It left me feeling happy and satisfied.
Good story. Definitely worth the read. Even my husband enjoyed it. What was really nice was the fact that not every scene was about sex. There was actually a story involved.
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Absolutely I would recommend this book and already have. It's one of the best books I've read in a while!
Jim Heron! He's wonderful!
He was GREAT! He did a wonderful job!
The end when Vin is completely vunerable when they are removing the possession spell. And also when Jim dies and he takes Vin and Marie Therese's hands and puts them together. *tear*
Wonderfully well developed story-line draws you in and keeps you hanging on to every word. Great characters involve you intimately from the very beginning to the very last. An exemplary work.
