The Narrator has a very sexy southern accent (IMO). The elemental magic is cool and looked at in a new way. The characters are larger then life and its a fast exciting read. This is the exact book I like to take me out of my history or other 40+ hour audible books. There isn't a deep dive into how the magic works or complex relationships. Its direct, action packed, and diverting as I do house work. I recommend it as long as this is your genera because you get exactly what you'd expect in a 10 hour magic assassin book. Plus there are 7 books so you can intersperse them between your other reads to mix things up.
The story is good and I plan to buy the physical book. The narrator would stop in the middle of a sentence. Also, she had way too big of a silence gap in between sentences. I could not get past chapter one.
For anyone that is looking to relax and likes to take their time getting to through a story, this books for you. The story was good but the tempo/pace and deep voice of the reader just made it boring to me.
I actually changed my iPod speed to "faster" which helped for a while. It was just too slow.
Love reading books and listening to books. God bless the written word!
I didn't purchase the print version. But I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. The story was well developed and I enjoyed the character's journey.
Gin for sure. A strong but complicated female character.
Loved she voice and her characterization of the character.
Take a drink of Gin and fall into a dark adventure.
Yes, it helps the day go by faster and it's a good listen.
Lauren's performance was good, she gave a different voice for each character.
It was worth the time like I said before it starts slow but the second half of the book makes up for it.
You have an idea of who did it but you don't know the how and little of the why?
no one should read this
Go and get the hallows
no I havent, but I wasnt that impressed
kill them all
I had the hardest time listening to the hard "g's" by the narrator. e.g. wrongah (wrong), longah (long), he was strongah. (is her last name Fortanga?) I didn't mind the quasi-southern accent. I even liked the interesting timbre of her voice. I just hated the hard g's. I live in the South and no one pronounces g's like that.
I wish Gin would have used her power more, practiced it, etc, instead of just ignoring it.
I listened to the end because the story was pretty good, despite some of the oddities.
Decent story, easy listen. Just a fun book.
Liked Cain, a little cliche but everyone likes the straight arrow who falls for the bad girl.
Good performance, male voices could have been better.
Probably, can't find the time to listen to anything that long.
I really enjoyed the first two books, couldn't wait to start with the other books; however, with each new book I had to listen to reruns of book 1 and 2 and it got tiresome. I'm definitely not in the same great hurry to listen to. And no, I would not listen to Spider's Bite again as I will get to listen to it in the next book, if and when I decide to hear it.
Surprise. It would have been a good ending -
excitement, the thrill of wanting to see someone "make it"
no.... not really
I couldn't stop listening to the book. Excellent story. Well developed characters. Good flow. Thought the narrator did an excellent job. Couldn't wait to download the next book.
