I enjoyed the premise but the graphic descriptions of the gorey violence took away from the story. Of course with supernaturals and vampires, killing is a necessary and expected plot element but the detailed descriptions of the violence were a bit much.
This is a good writer for supernatural. Without any sex for those that don't like that sort of thing.
The action is kind of messy, your never sure where stuff is in a fight. The dialog is okay, but often send strange, maybe I'm just not connecting with the characters?
love to listen to A.B. while on the road in my semi truck it helps pass the time
Not sure if the print is better i have not read it .. As for the audio, it was very good ,great story line .It was better than I thought it would be.
The parts where it was told from beast as well as Jane
I could feel the inner battle and thoughts form both beast and Jane
When Jane learned how she became part of the beast, and the way she tried to reason with herself and beast about what happened and why.
very similar supernatural creatures, beasts and societal rules as True Blood - cool with me since I liked that show
I like the story it flows well and has interesting ideas. the main character is also good. She's well rounded and tough. wicked sense of humor and interesting personality. but there is one flaw to her that's so annoying and pervasive that I feel it drags the story down two stars. she is super boy crazy. and yes its as immature as it sounds. her standards are incredibly shallow and while there is no romance line nor a sex line it still affects the story negatively. all her interactions with any main male character revolves around how attracted she is to them or vise versa. and with the Joe guy it's just rediculous. he keeps showing himself to be a shady playboy who is not only sleeping with the bad guys girl but also spying on her but she keeps falling back on how good he looks and how much beast wants to mate with him. it makes me think of a Jr high girl hanging on the drugged up loser with starry eyes and makes me want to slam my head into the nearest solid object.
I would listen to this book again and again. The characters are very entertaining.
Beast was my favorite character.
I have listened to most of the rest of the series. All the dream yellowrock books I have listened to so far are very good as well.
When I first saw this in my list I didn't know if I'd like it. Well I decided to use a credit on it and got the first book. After listening for a little bit I went ahead and got the next two as well :)
The story is very well written and isn't so erotic or corny as other vamp series are. This is a really good series and I'd recommend it to others for sure!!!
And the narrator is very good at making everyone have a voice. You know who's talking before she says who it is because of their voice. I hate having a good book with a horrible speaker, so glad she rocked this series!!
