I enjoy audio books because I have an hour drive each way to work and this listening to books make the drive more enjoyable.
Love JR Wards books but have never heard of this series, OMG I loved it and was so glad I got it. The story of Jim Heron was a real delight to listen to and Eric Dove's voice...well lets just say deep, dark and oh so sexy....the book has a great story line, lots of depth, action and detail.
This is a great book and Eric Dove is phenominal! What a great story. Very different and captivating from the first. The story moves well and really holds your interest. The characters are well developed and there are times I get lost in the story. Everything s good book should be!
Love anything about shifters and lycanthropy. Paranormal romance is my thing! best escape and entertainment I can imagine! :]
I will probably listen again. I really liked the narrator! He did a great job with the all the charaters and i could easily tell them apart! I am quiet fond of J.R Wards style of writing! It is hip, modern and edgy.
When Vin saw Gretchen from across the club. I was so there!!
No, this was my first to be narrated by him. LOVED his deep masculine voice! thought he was supberb for this book!
I love anything supernatural or different. The whole story line and concept are right up my alley. So well written too!! Never a boring or dull moment!
I am delighted to see that Jim Heron is in the next installments. i wish he would walk into my life!! I plan on purchasing the next 2 when my credits come in this month!
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.
