I have tried several audiobooks by the the two authors. I find their series entertaining, and they have some really interesting characters.
There were no big surprises connected to the ending, but it did trigger my interest enough to want to listen to the next audiobook in the series.
The narrator does an excellent job portraying the different characters.
I probably would, but I doubt that there will ever be a movie based on this book.
The story is entertaining, but not as engaging as the story in book 1.
I am a school counselor that loves horror, fantasy, autobiographies, self-help, and Christian genres. I am a BIG bookworm! Reading is life!
Yes, probably a few years from now. I do not like to listen to books over and over because it takes away the magic of them for me.
The relationship between Lena and Ethan is somewhat of a resemblance to Diana Bishop & Matthew Clairmont of "Discovery of Witches." The plot as well had the same detail-oriented quality of sucking me into a roller coaster ride of "WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT???" Plus, the Castor World/ Incubus World resembled the vampire and demon world in "Discovery of Witches." There was a lot of archaic knowledge between both of them. Similar qualities but two totally different stories!
Kevin T. Collins was amazing at bringing this book to life! He definitely used inflections and accents to his advantage. You could tell that he wanted to make sure every person in the book had a presence. He made the characters relatable where you could not help but fall in love with them and laugh when they did things that were characteristic of their nature. The way he narrated the story...it just flowed so well and his southern accent was pretty good. His English accent always made me smile. I really liked Liv in the book!
YES! There is no Earthly way that I could have... seeing that it is almost 16 hours long, but I could not wait to find out what was going to happen next. I was like "Hurry, hurry!! I have to know!"
Make sure you read "Beautiful Creatures" before, but this series will not disappoint! Kami Garcia & Margaret did an amazing job crafting this gorgeous story together. I could understand why seeing that they are a reading specialist or specialized in creative writing. I will say that the book is very different from the movie in many ways. Many "Beautiful Creatures" fans were so disappointed that the director did not stick to the story or decided to cut important characters from the story line. I think the casting director did a phenomenal job casting who they did for the roles! I integrated those people into my visualization of the characters and it just made sense!
this is a very short story with 2 hours of promo for next book
I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.
Yes I love Kevin T. Collins' voice.
It is hard to pick just one, but I have to say Link is the funniest man alive.
My favorite is every minute of it all.
How far would you go for love?
Get it and love it!
This was the book of the series in which the most happened. It was fun to listen to and see how the characters evolved and grew. It was the best plot.
His voice. I could just listen to that voice with that accent all day long. It made me feel he was sitting next to me in the car and telling me the story.
I felt it was, I had previously read/listened to Beautiful Creatures and was hooked. I felt that I needed to see where the characters went from the end of BC.
Macon was my favorite. His cadence and drawl were dead on for what I expected when reading book 1.
It was very slow going and didn't pick up until about halfway through. It took a couple tries for me to get into it. I couldn't get past the slow beginning until I got the audiobook so I could listen to it while driving. Then I alternated between reading and listening.
The narrator did a good job giving each charter their own voice. Some of the accents grated on my nerves. My biggest complaint is that he read so slow. It helped when I increased the speed to 1.5, but the reading still didn't sound fluid.
Try the sample before buying so you can check if you can tolerate the narration.
This is the one where Edward breaks up with Bella and runs off. Kidding, but it definately gives you that feeling. This is a good story, lots of fun fantasy. You will definately want to read it if you read the first one!
I really love listening to this series on audio. The voices and sound effects give it such life. This is a great 2nd book. At one point I wanted to toss it out the window but then Ethan saved his girl L. I dont think Ethan life will ever be kickback again.
Ethan of course. I am pulling for him, he is the boyfriend I wanted.
Bring home the fact that Ethan (a boy) is our lead and he has the accenct to make you know he has been raised as a southern gentalman
This is a great 2nd book. At one point I wanted to toss it out the window when L was alone and believing John, but then Ethan saved his girl L. all was good.
I dont think Ethan's life will ever be kickback again.
