Unfortunately I actually do read the story for the story and not the sexual descriptions so I wish there was a less sexual (not no sex, just less) version. Even if it is hours shorter.
I live in Audible books! Now, when I find a book I can't put down; I am no longer chained to a chair. I can take my story wherever I go!
I have an inkling that this may be a good read. However, I've been spoiled by some really excellent narrators on Audible. Kresly Cole's, Robert Petkoff for instance, is amazing for a great paranormal romance.
This narrator makes the characters sound like they're in their 50's. Has little character or personality in his reading and makes it so bland, boring and annoying, It's painful to listen. Fortunately for Feehan, it seems I'm the minority in this case. I wonder if it may be that most of the listeners haven't experienced a really good story-teller?
I see he's the narrator for the rest of the series, so I won't be listening. Save it for the Kindle.
I wish men were really like Rilynn Miller I would search one down and keep him.but until then I'll keep on read about Christine Freehans kind of man
Iliked the interactions between all of the Ghost walkers. I also liked the emotion that Mrs Feehan puts into her stories. It makes me feel like I am with the characters.
The Sceen where all the Ghost walkers show up at the ball, and rescue Lilly.
Yes. Where Lilly figured out what her supposed father had done to her.
I loved the is book from beginning to end. Deffitenly worth the credit.
Say something about yourself!
The book was LONG! I could have summed up the first 8 hours in about 30 minutes, but I kept at it hoping it would get better...and it did. I would give Part I a rating of negative 1 star, and part 2 a rating of 4 stars. Once the book finally got going it was a descent story about a man and a woman who both had psychic abilities.
One thing that I didn't like was that their attraction was never really explained. They both suspected it was forced on them, but we didn't ever find out, I don't like loose threads.
The steamy scenes....once we finally got to them, were C+...I don't know why ever author feels the need to make the girl a virgin, it served no purpose in this story line, and she wasn't young. That was another thing that bugged me about this book, for the first 10 hours or so you got the impression the girl of the story was a book nerd, walked with a limp due to a crushed leg, a real plane Jane type that the hero was attracted to for her soul and mind...but the last 3 hours everyone made her sound like a true knockout....not much consistency there.
The whole book lacked consistency in my opinion...I won't be reading #2. on a side note, I liked the narrator, he did a pretty good job of expressing the charachters, I'd listen to him again!
A little reality!
Play down the attraction for at least the first few chapters.
Could not listen to more than 1/2 hour. Very poor writing and narration.
I enjoyed the premise, but it got lost in bad dialogue and weird narration. You hear a very (comical) growly "DAMMIT LILLY!" every few minutes it seems.
It had an interesting story line with Ryland's men, the military involvement, the undercover nature of the whole issue.
Nice to finally see how the ghostwalers got started.
Lilly her struggle to deal with her fathers ultimate betray was compelling.
To by the others to get caught up on the series.
Sound quality wasn't as good as it should have been.
I've probably read this book 4 times, the audible version was a great addition. I did not realize how much I had filtered out of the side characters. The alligator tale was so much better with all the voices. I didn't even read the Samari book just got the audible version.
Even a slightyly more talented writer.
Just by reading the book out loud
the story line could have been great
Author seems to have collated this book with a letter to a cheap porn mag.
