contains gratuitous and unessesary sex scenes, and nonsense logic to continue the plot. I very much enjoyed the Kate Daniels books, this one has the same main characters with worse back stories, and less reasoning skills. The world is somewhat interesting and the book kept me entertained for the most part, but would not recommend to a friend.
Absolutely, really great story and well performed
It is on its own, a new story. That is probably the reason I liked it so well.
Rose - great heroin, not overplayed.
Where two worlds come together
It is an entertaining listen. Well worth the investment.
Renee Raudman does a very nice job reading. There are lots of characters, accents and different ages and she doesn't flub any of them. I love this story. I'd read a grocery list if the Ilona Andrews team wrote it.
this was a great book - unlike their kate daniels series this was a little more on the romance side - which is great for me. one of my fav authors so i was not disappointed.
I have been so disappointed lately with several selections.....the story lines have been boring. NOT THIS ONE......
When Rosie finally lets her guard down
Oh yes! I found the book intriguing with a strong plot and character development.
The guy dangling from the tree wrapped in plastic like a gift.
almost good for everyone. fast, fun, easy the on the ears. A whole new world? yes.
the humor is good fun, can't wait to get to the next book.
Renee Raudman has so many voices. They are very clear you can hear the snark and laughter in them. loved it.
My favorite is Jack. lol I think we will see more of him.
there are some places that if you are with a group you might need to stop or fast forward a bit. not many ...
I like realistic books that stretch the truth and the laws of physics...and also emotionally resonant narration that doesn't suck.
I had heard about this author, but upon looking at her other books decided that this was an author who just wasn't for me. Her premises, in their summaries, appear to be trope filled YA, with A LOT of emphasis on the "Y". I don't know about her other works yet, but wow. I was wrong. Ilona Andrews is just a really skilled writer! You can write about almost anything at all if you write well, and in this book the author really stretches the imagination. The thing I really appreciated about it though, was the way her similes and metaphors rang so true, and in such a concise and spare way. It really brings her character's minds into the reader's and helps you experience the story. I'm so happy I read her!
I have never read the print edition so I have nothing to compare it to.
Aside from the sweet way Rose and Declan fell in love, a very memorable spot for me.. was with Georgie.. Rose's youngest brother.. he was so fragile and sickly. It was because he kept bringing things back to life.. people and animals because he could not let go. Declan finally got Georgie to see the error of his thinking by showing Georgie how the earth would get terribly overcrowded and people and animals would die.. from lack of food, etc. Georgie made up his mind to let all the things he kept alive.. he would let go and let die. They went into the yard and he started summoning all the animals and his grandpa.. he kept grandpa alive too. by the time Georgie had gotten all in his yard.. there were literally hundreds and hundreds of animals. It was breath taking to hear. Now they knew why Georgie was so sickly. He was keeping all alive with his own white light. they were sucking his life from him minute after minute.. till they all died and Georgie slowly regained his health.
scratchy and irritating. I hated Declan's voice the most of all.
definitely. But it was good to take in small bites as well. I enjoyed this book plenty.
