I thought this was a fine book with a good premise. Unfortunately, it needed a really good editor. The last third of the book dragged and certainly could have been "tighter", but still a good story. I thought the narrator was great and I am looking forward to downloading the next book - I just hope that the second book has a better editor!!
I'm so happy I bought this one. It was a great listen and an excellent narrator. Can't wait for the next one in the series.
detailed, intense, classic
as awesome as hunger games
Diana of course!
too many to decide
loved this book,,,,fan of twilight and hunger games and this is just as good...buy it!!!
yes I did and I have listened twice so far I truly enjoyed this book
Harry Potter but adult version because she gets a little on the steamy side.
yes a few.
I love that I can relate to the area that she talks about as well.
A total surprise. I'm not a fan of the witch/vampire trend yet I totally enjoyed this book. I can hardly wait for the next book to finish out the series.
I really liked listening and didn't want it to end. I can not wait until July 10th then book 2 comes out! It is a little order then alot of these type of books. The characters are build up well too!
Just when I thought I was getting bored to death, something happens and I keep reading. It was well read, and entertaining. I started READING the book, and kept putting it down too often. Once I put it on my LISTEN TO LIST, BOOM...DONE!!! HURRY UP next book!!! I'm anxiously awaiting July 10th for the next in this series!
Yes. I have fallen in love with a book before, and often hate it when I reach the end... but this one I have not only loved, but listened repeatedly, very rare for me. There is nothing about this book that is not totally addictive. Not a fan of Witches, Vampires and 'demons'? It really won't matter!!! This is a tale that I cannot reccommend highl enough.
The narrator is wonderful and every charactar has a life of their own.
Who would not love Mathew and Diana? There are so many wonderful, colorful, and fascinating charactars in this book that if I could not choose one of the lovers I would not be able to point out just one other....
All... I did not lose interest for a moment. From simple moments, to the highs and lows there is not a single scene I would not wish to relive.
I laughed, cried,giggled and shrieked.... I fell in love with this book and it's charactars... what more extreme reaction is there than that? The narrator made sure that every moment was as real as if you were there listening to them.
Counting the days to the next book has been almost painful with anticipation. I follow the author, Deborah Harkness, on facebook and her website. And have fallen in love with the scribble ring.... you can not go wrong with this book, author or narrator.
I never thought I would enjoy a book about witches and vampires, nearly 30 hours long, and part 1 of a trilogy. But a friend recommended it and I admit she was correct. I look forward to the next book.
