Warning, this book is not for the faint of heart when it comes to “adult language and situations” but then again it was not meant to be. It has a small taste of teenage vampire fantasy but it is all grown-up, in a good way. The sexual tension between the main characters tends to leave you wanting more, just like it should and the trill of the hunt in the action is good as well. Tavia is still feeling the character out in this 1st book, but she quickly becomes one with her and brings her to vivid life. All in all, if you love good suspenseful action and a strong and sexy kickass heroine, well it’s a GREAT start to an even better series.
This is a fun paranormal romance series. I like the characters a lot. They're a little stereotyped in this book (but in ways that work for me) but they are better fleshed out in later books.
I'm writing this review to add a dissenting voice to the complaints about Gilbert's voice for Bones. I actually find his voice very sexy and it's one of the main reasons I bought book 2 of the series after finishing book 1.
For calibration purposes, I've lived in the US all my life and don't know enough about non-American accents to be jarred by bad ones. Bones's accent sounds semi-English and semi-Australian to me, which fits with his background.
I really enjoyed Tavia Gilbert "british" accent when voicing Bones!
Every scene that Tavia voices Bones.
I love Bones
Yes and she engages you from the start and also gives you humor ! I don't agree with some of the readers,her accent for bones is great! He's not present day English it was over 600 years ago and anyone whose read or seen some of the movies of long ago you would realize she is right on. I hope she continues to read for Ms. Frost I give her 10!
i LAUGHED AND CRIED IT WAS EMOTIONALLY ENGAGING. I read in one day, I couldn't put it down.
Proud book worm!
I loved all of it! Ms. Frost has an amazing knack for story telling!!!
Bones! He's got a sexy British accent and a naughty side that you can't help but to smile over.
Tavia as always brings the story to life and every character their own essence!
The story totally sucked me in!
I've ready the whole series and love each and every book in it! To really understand what is going on, one really needs to read this series from the beginning...which is this book! I very much recommend it. Very delightful, witty and interesting!
Yes because the characters are so fun and real.
The english accent for Bones was hard to get used to but after a bit it seemed to fit. So now when I read the book I hear that accent in my head.
yes because you wanted to keep going with their story...love that there is more books in the series!
Give the series a try and you wont be sorry!
I love this story. I will say at first the narrator got to me, bugged me a little.. but i warmed to her a littler later.. i believe what got me was bones voice she does it a lil too high pitched for how wonderful he is. i think that's what i liked the least.
what i liked the best was the story as a whole. I mean it had a good mix of introducing a new series and the char actors with a nice flow of action and movement of time I appreciate who things didn't all happen in a matter of days or weeks.
this was an amazing start to a good series.. had situations you can relate to even true to the dangers of being in your early 20's (the bar incident). things that where hilarious (what was my hand doing there.. gripping that?) i would LOL a few times and the situations.
i might have to think about this.
i think i covered this.. the reader did change her voice for spoken words accents changed her voice for different characters (some thing that is a big pet peeve of mine when they don't) i just have an issue with bones voice.. soo high pitched sounding.
i think i love it just the way it is. i especially love how the story grows with each book.
The banter between characters made me laugh out loud. Bones was intriguing, followed by Cat. Jeaniene made all the characters interesting and you want to learn more about them. I couldn't wait for the next book.
Bones has a beyond straight forward manner and says exactly what he wants without self monitoring. His smart %^&* comments are worth waiting for. He is the best character.
I don't think the book would be half as good. I don't think a man could have portrayed Bones better or captured his nature. She was superb! I don't think my imagination could have brought him to life as well.
Yes, I kept cleaning the house with my ipod on just to hear the book and then I listened to the whole book again.
I enjoy a good romance novel. I enjoy audible books for commuting & listening while at work. England, Scottland & wild west favorite locals.
Wonderful fiction series.
Perhaps the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer's crossed with the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.
I have not. I did enjoy her narration and would read other books read by Tavia.
There were many points in the book where I was moved. I don 't feel that I can choose just one.
I think Jeannine Frost has done an excellent job with book. I have already purchased all of the remaining books in this series to listen to.
I almost passed on this series because the titles of the books were not what I usually look for in paranormal romance. I am so happy that I stopped to listen. It is a really good, and surprisingly original story in this genre.
