It was a combination of things - the additional background about Kate and her family, the Kate and Curren conflict and resolution, and the narration.
One of the most memorable moments for me was when Kate begged Curren to change back to human. The narrator did a wonderful job of crossing back and forth between the various stages of Kate's emotions - coaxing, pleading, begging, sobbing in despair, and finally lashing out angrily. Such emotion - I would have given the narrator 6 stars if I could!
Um, didn't we just discuss the scene where Kate begged Curren to change back from Beast to human?
Blood, order, or heart - all choices have consequences.
Love the series and the narrator.

i burned through these books and now i'm depressed that there aren't more RIGHT NOW.
Hurry up, damn it.
I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.
Great series--consistent in that each book treads the familiar ground that we enjoyed in the first book, but always new in that Andrews takes us deeper into that familiar ground every time. The overall story of the series is progressing nicely, with each book both adding to that story and standing strong on its own.
Each book in this series has been an improvement on the last. The characters plateau into solid entities and the world blooms into it's own. I love ancient mythological fiction and the Andrews use it well enough to be highly enjoyable. I also hate cliffhangers and the Andrews avoid this pitfall by artfully ending the fourth novel by having some means of character closure. It did not get five stars because I wanted more action than creepy romance. Still, it was very good and I am looking forward to Magic Slays in April.
All the books in the Kate Daniels series are well-written and love the voice for the audio books. This series has become one of my favorite audio books. I have listened to this book and others in the series several times and can't wait for more books.♡ ♡
This is, so far, my favorite book in the series. The plot is great, the action intense, and of course, the character dynamics are off the charts.

Longest. Ending. Ever. As always the voice acting is flawless. I was scared at the creepy parts, and was worried the actress was actually crying at the sad parts. But I hate endings that make you wait an absurd amount of time for a resolution. It was good as those endings go though. Obviously, my preference doesn't change the quality of the book. But I'm pisses off and strung out and I'm subtracting a star because of it.
... the action scenes are exciting and the entire story is compelling! I loved the first three books and also this one although with some reservation. Two things that bothers me: one - when they laid the cards on the table, so Curren has not said why and what exactly made him fell in love with Kate (I expected more here after that amazing build up in their relationship), two - actual sex scenes - like what!? That's it!?
Renée Raudman did amazing job and made great story line come alive. One thing though, sometimes was difficult to distinguish when Kate thinks and when she talks to people. I had to rewind it back and try it to figure out from context.
Most series get old after a few books but this series just keeps giving and I can't wait to read another. The storyline stays fresh and the characters keep developing.

Kate is figuring out her powers and her history, glad this book seem to get back towards the underlying goal and builds on Kate's history and family tree.
I read a few reviews that disliked the Narrator, but I think the Narrator is awesome through this whole series.
