This is a wonderful series...action & romance. The reader is excellent. After listening to this book....had to have the rest in the series that were available!!
I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to continue the series. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it really took me a long time to get used the to narrator's voice for the leading man. So much so that I considered not continuing with the story. But about a few hours into it I was able to get accustomed to it and the story line had me hooked so I had to continue regardless. I really enjoyed the author's take on the do's and don'ts of vampires. I highly recommned this book.
I loved this book. The character are fun and dynamic. The only thing is the narrators portrayal of Bones, but that you can get past.
I liked this book so much that I went out and bought the other books just to read what was next. I like the way the story was wrote and read. It just worked. I can't wait for her next books to come to audible.
First, I'm sure most of you are smarter than I am and went to the author's link to discover that there is only this one book in audio so far. If that's a problem for you, as it is for me, put it on your wish list and wait. You'll want to read the second.
The book is fun. There's gratuitous sex and violence in an action packed and extra cheesy trashy vampire romance novel. If that's what you're looking for, you've arrived at the right place.
The author had the oppertunity to delve into some serious issues- stop and re-evaluate your worldview issues- but deftly sidestepped them. Perhaps they will seem more genuine in the next books, but here and now, the serious things seemed too overblown even for commentary that tends to exaggerate character flaws and social problems for the sake of making the point.
The narration... What can I do but put it out there... If I had eternity before me and more than 2 centuries behind me, I'd lose the awful accent. No matter where you're from- a bad accent's a bad accent. This one's on Bones though, not a problem with the narration.
This is a fun book and the narrator, Tavia Gilbert, is great. So many reviews mentioned that they didn't like her voice doing Bones' English accent that I almost didn't spend the credit on it. She does a great accent. Bones is supposed to have been raised in an 18th century brothel on the streets of London. His accent is straight London gutter snipe and perfect for the character. The plot is fast paced, filled with all the paranormal adventure you are expecting, but twisted in a new way.
If you like kick-ass heroines with love interests that aren't cookie cutter, you will enjoy listening to this book.
I loved this audiobook. I was worried when I read some of the reviews about the narrator but I have lots of unused credits so I thought I'd give it a try and I am so glad I did! I liked the narrator ok. I have heard much worse. The book was great. This is now one of my favorite books. I am so ready for the second book but I don't think it will be out on audio until November! UGH! UGH! UGH! Can't that be hurried up! I can't wait that long!
There were some cheesy parts in the scene with bones interrogating her, but I fell in love once I pushed past that. The narrator also did not read it them same way I would have, but I think that happens to me with every audible book. I have read every book in this series including the spin-offs. I can't get enough! I highly recommend this series and I am about to re-read them. I am addicted!!
