I couldn't listen past the first few chapters. It's deeply repetitive, based on the worst romance formulas. I hate characters like this. Stupid, stubborn, thoughtless. They only exist to "move the plot forward". Very boring.
He reads every sentence as though it were a headline. Way over the top. I feel I'm being yelled at.
Disappointed. It seemed like a fun idea, but very poorly executed. I expected better from a "recommended" book.
I'm trying to get my credit back for this book.
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I enjoyed this book, although "Gideon Speak" could get annoying at times. I really liked Scarlett. She had a great personality.
The demon of Lies, hmmm, what can I say, this book was somewhat different compared to the others...dare I say mediocre in comparison??? That hurts me to say, because I LOVE the Lords! It took me way too long to get into it when usually I'm hooked from word one! The funny thing was that the sum of its parts didn't add up to much, but separately the different story lines throughout were interesting and funny (Strider).
The main story which focused on Gideon didn't really snag my attention until the last few hours. I think this was partially due to the strange way Gideon has to speak...in double negatives and "opposites"backwards talk...and it's just too much to decipher when there are several other characters also speaking or thinking, and when I'm just trying to lose myself in the story...yeah, it wasn't happening. But FYI, there were some pretty hot and heavy sexy love scenes between Gideon and his love interest.
I'm six books deep into this series so there's no turning back now, nor would I want to end my SuperFan allegiance to the LOTU! I'm pretty sure the next story--Amun's and then Strider's story will be really good. This is still a very credit worth series, but, I probably wouldn't spend a credit on this one.
Probably if I had read the previous books in the series.
Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost.
When I got this book I did not know it was part of a series. This book was not like books from Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire Mysteries, and Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series, which are all good stand alone books. I was completely lost throughout this book. The book read like I was supposed to already know the characters and the plot. Maybe if I had read the previous books I would have liked it more. But, I don't know that I want to. Probably not.
JUST THE WAY HE HAD TO TALK WAS SOOO ADORABLE.
WHEN HE DIDN'T LIE AND TOLD THE TRUTH JUST FOR HER!! AND ENDED UP IN SO MUCH PAIN BUT DIDN'T CARE.
HE'S HAS A SEXY VOICE, BUT THEN HE WOULD GET MONOTONE AND DRAB AT SOME POINTS.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Another great addition to the LOTU series. Although I will admit I wasn't as engrossed in this story as much as the other ones. There was maybe a few too many side stories from other points of views going on for me to really get involved in the love story. With that said it is still really good if you are committed to the series, which defiantly need to be read in order. I did like the second half better than the first half. I personally would like to see the story of Torin.
Believer in what you can't see
I love that Gideon and Scarlett figure out their relationship. I also like seeing the depth of feelings Gideon has for Scarlett and tries everything he can to help her.
Gideon is one of my favorites. I find the character very touching and he get so upset that he can't tell others how he really feels about them without pain. He is one of the Lords that will give his life for another.
Max Bellmore makes the story better than in book form. There are only 2 other series that I just have the audiobooks because the narrator make the story wonderful to listen to. The other two are Jeannie Frost, Cat and Bones, and Charlaine Harris, Sookie Stackhouse.
The most moving moment is when Gideon was told that he had a son and that he died at the hand of Zeus. He was in such sorrow, not only because he couldn't remember him, but that the God that he admired killed his son. Even after he found out it wasn't true, he still felt sorrow that he didn't have a son after all.
Firstly, I didn't realize this was a Harlequin book. Normally that would be enough but I do listen to fantasy/romance so the book itself is not too far off. Narration was OK. The book was just very simple.
From what I deduct, this is one of a series so maybe it would make sense that way...There were two different story lines developing one of which made absolutely no sense. I kept wondering did she just write this stuff as fill? I enjoy mythology very much and have enjoyed the small twists the author has made. But, nothing that knocked me off my socks.
Scarlett was a good character. Gideon was sometimes a bit too stupid. I know, I know...He can't speak the truth but it got a quiet a bit more monotone toward the end. Romance part was also mediocre. If you're looking for that...Sherilyn Kenyon or Feehan...
Listen if you wish but don't expect too much of anything.
