This book was well written and kept me wanting more.
Diana and Matthew are just a complete set that kept the story going.
it made me feel like I was right there in the moment
the back story of the characters
discovery of romance
This is an amazing book Jennifer Ikeda is a extraordinary narrator I can't wait till second book comes out by far the best book I've ever listen to
I'm still new to the audio book world, but this narrator just grated at me. I thought the story was perfect for an audio book as it was enjoyable to listen to but not deep enough you needed to really think about.
It was a fun creative story. However, it was annoying that it was written for a trilogy so there was no real end, and the next book isn't out yet. By the time the third one is out, I'm sure I will have forgotten about it as enjoyable as the story was, I'm not counting the days for the next one. If I remember, I'll get it.
Anyone! Multiple times I almost gave up listening because of the narrator. Some of her voices, especially the ones with accents, grated. When the next book comes out, if she's the narrator I'll be reading it instead.
This was a wonderful book. At first I was unsure about another story about sexy vampires, but this was really done well. The narrator was very good, though sometimes her voice would change for the same character making it hard to tell who was speaking. I look forward to the next book.
I quickly got tired of the way the main character, Diana lets everyone push her around and abuse her verbally and emotionally. I don't believe that you can, even magically, become a full professor at a young age and not have better survival and people management skills. I had hoped she would be a smart, inquisitive and active participant in her own life and she just wasn't.
I've listened to it more than once - that is how much I enjoyed it. I cannot wait for book 2! No complaints here :)
Yes, I've listened to it many times already! The reader is fantastic.
Absolutely! I listened to it in two long sessions because of it's length.
Please, please use the same reader for the two other books in the series! She was fabulous! I am very anxious to listen to the rest of the series when it comes out.
To those who enjoy run-of-the-mill romance novels, this book will be a winner. I find the romance chick lit formula to be dull, however, and so am finding it very difficult to summon up much interest. By the description, I hoped that the mystery plot would be more engaging than it is; the supernatural mystery really just serves to throw pretty witch and sexy vampire into each other's arms.The characters are also two-dimensional and predictable.Generally, the reader is fine, though I always find it disconcerting when a reader mispronounces words, especially when acting the part of a supposedly super-smart first person narrator. This reader makes such flubs occasionally; don't audiobooks have editors to handle such gaffes?
I have only read the audio version - However, will purchase the printed edition for friends and family.
It moves very quickly - AND there is never a dull moment.
Wonderful accents - a delight to hear. Makes the story come alive.
No laughing, no crying - just shear delight from beginning to end.
I read (and loved) Harry Potter that was purchased for the grandkids, way back when! My main read has been adventure (Jack Dubrul, Cussler, Preston & Child etc) and bios. Just purchased this for something different.
Now, I am not sure how I am going to wait until July for the 2 book in the series!
Although it begins a little slowly, staying with this book is well worth the effort. I enjoyed the time that is spent developing the characters and the different feel that is developed with each location in the work. I am excited for the second book!
