The book was okay but did not hold my attention. The biggest issue was the voice of the woman who performed the book. It actually was a voice that grated on me and I could not believe they used such a poor narrator for the part she was reading.
It was an okay ending.
Wrong person for the book, I think
It needs a lot of work if they do a follow-up. It is not a cliff hanger and quite predictable.
No not really
I had read the entire series. This time I'm listening. Loved it. The narrator really made this story come alive. I'm on the the next.
This was a very good story I would say it is worth a credit at parts it was a little slow going sometimes a bit repetitive but it is a new twist on the vamp tails and stories. But as I said it is a long audio but I believe the reason it is so long is because it is a little bit repetitive at some points they just kept reiterating the same information again and again and just new ways which irritated me a little bit and the heroin though she is supposed to be strong and yet at the same time it independent woman at sometimes was downright whiny and that was annoying. But I did enjoy the overall story and the narrator was great and her reading so I do find the series interesting I do find it well worth the credit and I would continue the series.
Someone recommended this book to me after I finished the Dark hunter series. this was a great book. I'm really glad I read it. I really liked ravens character, and I thought that Christine for him to do great job of showing Carol's difficulty adjusting to having the woman he thought for herself.
I honestly wish I could get my money/credit back for this book. It was confusing, scrambled, and just generally ALL OVER the place. It jumped into the plot with no build up, suddenly this girl that hates contact is over dramatically driven to contact and be with this strange man, the drama was off. I was just overall displeased with this book. I won't be buying any more of the series. I spent most of the story rolling my eyes.
The odd plot. The over use of the word "males", "females", and "our people"
Less whining when in the girl role.
The reader's interpretation of the character's made them weak and whiny;it was distracting to the storyline. Christine writes very strong female and male leads not desperate ones. I had heard great things about this series but now I guess I will read them on my Kindle.
no, complete waste of time. it starts off randomly with absolutely NO character development or detailed back story, just way to predictable and boring. sad that there 20+ books in this series...I hope the get better, but I won't waste a credit to find out :(
neither but the narration was very good
I love books that take a different spin on vampires. Especially ones that leave the dark evil vampires but then have others of a different race that are similar but more good guys. I love books set in the Carpathian mountains, and I love strong heroines, this should make it that I would love this book. I didn't. I enjoyed it and it has a excellent story to it. I found I enjoyed it greatly with two exceptions. There were several area where I found myself saying "get on with it all ready" at these places the descriptions were long, detailed and unnecessary. And secondly there was the Strong Heroine, modern day independent woman, with the ability to read minds. This should be awesome. Strong and independent does not = stupid, and a strong & intelligent woman does not disobey in very stupid ways, when they know it could mean their life, especially a woman so adept and reading minds and yet so naive and stupid about the gravity of human nature. She was not believable in the least. I could see her arguing and being pissy, but not going off and doing stupid things just to prove she was independent and strong, and every single time nearly getting herself and the man, she will do anything to keep happy, killed. Also she tracks serial killers for the police and yet she blatantly by thought and yet she constantly misjudges everyone's actions and thoughts and defends them because "they can't be evil". I really had issues with this woman. If she had been made slightly stronger and less whinny I would have enjoyed this story to the fullest, for the story behind the Carpathians and Vampires is EXCELLENT
Would have liked Raven to be a bit stronger as a character.
Jack has just the perfect fit of bad boy, sweet and sexy. Will enjoy seeing him find his lifemate.
Good naration and performance.
Sure. Get more of the series.
