I got this book because it had good reviews but it just wasn't for me. Unfortunately I bought 3 books in the series all at once and I felt obligated to listen to them all. They did not get any better for me through the series either. I think this story is just geared for women. Some men may like the series but my guess is most will not. I can at least say that it wasn't so bad that I stopped listening to it.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
Story is full of well-described action scenes that lend toward the reader's imagination.
No doubt when Cat & Bones are getting to know each other. Both in the bedroom and out especially when Cat allows Bones to feed for the first time.
No. However, Gilbert did an impeccable job in both Book 1 and Book 2. Loved how she keeps all the characters distinguishable.
I would recommend listening/reading "Halfway to the Grave" and "One Foot in the Grave" back to back. However, I did not have a similar experience in "At Grave's End." It felt like that one (Book 3) was written by someone else altogether. Save Bones, few characters behave/sound the same as Book 2. Not sure what happened there.
Reading is great, but I LOVE audiobooks! I would never get this much read or done without them...
Never thought I'd ever read books with a topless male gracing the cover, but I read this book - and then the rest of the Night Huntress series and the spin-offs as well. (Even though Night Huntress series covers don't, check out the cover of "Once Burned" and you'll see what I mean.)
The characters are enjoyable and it's just a fun ride. The sex scenes get more and more graphic from one novel to the next, but that's not why I read the books (they would be just as good without those scenes - the chemistry between the main characters is almost more palpable before they get to the dirty deed). The action, sense of humour and fun characters keep it entertaining in a way that kept me coming back, even if the basic storyline lacked originality at times.
Tavia is great, Bones's accent even grew on me.
I quite enjoyed these books, so glad I took a chance on the over-done Vamp genre!
Great mix of action, humour and romance, I bought this book and now have purchased all of them. Tavia Gilbert gives a great performance its almost a dramatisation rather than a reading she does such a good job with the different characters.
It's not one that kept me in the car once I got to the driveway to hear another chapter, but I don't feel as if I wasted my money. It was good
in this series...yes
kept me interested
Cat - human and part vamp
Bones- bad ass vamp
the voice and how she change her voice to fit the characters
Say something about yourself!
I don't normally expect much from the first book in a series. I've found that an author usually take a little time to get into the storyline and characters but this was actually a really good book. It wasn't the most riveting story I've read, but it kept me interested. The characters were fairly well developed and the premise is different enough to be fun. I'll definitely read more of the series.
What to say, I love listening to Audio Books. It gives me a perfect escape while I am working with loud equipment, hiding my ear buds under my ear muffs :)
This Audiobook series has given me a naughty reason to use the bookmarks! After this first book I just craved to listen to the next and the next. Its so good I am now re-listening to this set. I enjoy all the characters and the Narrator did a wonderful job! Love Love Love it!!
I would recommend this to anyone who ever read Twilight and tell them be prepared to think this is 10 times better. I bought the first 2 in the series on a super sale and am buying the rest. I was over the whole vampire thing but the reviewers for this series were so enthusiastic and I understand why now. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it.
You can't beat getting to know Bones.
This is my first Tavia Gilbert performance but I will be looking her up. She is probably one of the best narrators I've experienced so far in my short audible life.
I went out walking A LOT so I had an excuse to keep listening!
Yes the narrator does an outstanding job
She did a great job on all the characters
