Words I live by: Charm is a glow within a woman that casts a most becoming light on others~Jason Mason Brown
Will not disappoint you.
Cat and Bones of course... the chemistry sparks each word.
I have read and listened to the books. Tavia makes the Audio books. No one else could read this series and make it work like she does. She embodies the characters.
There is an emotional part *** Spoiler Alert *** where Cat thinks Bones is dead and it makes me cry because you never know what the writer may do but it works out well. Trust me.
Buy it, you wont regret it.
***CONTAINS SPOILER***I had a hard time staying focused in this book. The story felt like it was all over the place at times. I don't like Tate being SO in love with Cat and his character really annoys me. However, I can say that I was actually depressed when I thought Bones was dead! I read a lot of supernatural series and they always have one or two books in the series that just moves the series along and this felt like one of them. Tavia Gilbert still did a fantastic job! Oh...and I love Vlad!
I love books, but busy mom that doesnt have time to read them. So having audible has been a blessing to me. Shower or car listening is great
.......I enjoyed this 3rd book of the series, and still like that has its own originality that each of the books have from one another in this series, while still every much staying connected to one another.
BUT....... I got a little overwhelmed with so much going on that at times towards the end of the book I wasn't sure who was what, or what was happening when.
YET.......I still would listen to it again because it defiantly was entertaining while I wasn't confused!
One thing I like about series books is you get to watch characters grow and you get caught up in their adventures. I really wasn't crazy about the first book in the series as I wasn't crazy about Cat but she has grown a lot since the first book. This book was pretty gory at times as there's a war between vampires and one side fights pretty dirty. There's great chemistry between Cat and Bones and all the side characters are also pretty well developed. I also love Cat's sense of humor and thoughts. We get introduced to a few new creatures you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. All in all it was pretty fast-paced and on the edge of your seat at times wondering what was going to happen next.
I think the narrator does a great job with all the voices. I really love the way she does Bones.
Yes- the narrator is great!!
When Bones came back after we thought he was dead.
Her changing of voices with the characters- she really helps you feel like you are right there. She keeps it exciting!
When Kat finally accepts Annette.
This is a great series!
I started reading this series a while ago and then sort of forgot about it. I recently started the series over on audio book and have loved every minute. Cat and Bones are an awesome pair and there's always something going on. Don't limit yourself to just their stories though. Check out the off shoots too. This is for adults only though. Worth the cash or credit. Gilbert does an excellent job with the narration.
In this installment Cat and Bones and the gang end up taking on Cat's father, and Mencaries wife and she is formidable.

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney
Probably not. It was fun the first time but it does not have the re-read ability for me. There was nothing ground breaking enough to make me feel like I would need to experience it twice.
No spoilers here ;)
She does great voices. I really liked the way she did Bones' voice.
