Ok, all of the demonica books are really great, but I'm taking the time to review this one specifically. In most cases i don't like to hear a romance novel read by a male narrator. To me it just feels wrong. In this audiobook, the narrator did a great job. Usually I can tell right off, but in this one the reading was so smooth that I didn't even notice until halfway through. Love the series, love the author, and love the narrator. A must listen!
Disagree with one review which stated Paul Boehmer was a bad narrator. I thought he was spot on with the characters. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
Larissa Ione is a brilliant writer and this series is one of my favorite. This is book 4 in the Demonica series, and it is another excellent edition. Larissa does a great job developing the characters and having them grow during each series. This book is about Lore and Idess. Lore is a hard assassin, but he has loving and caring side. Idess is a beautiful angel who is trying to earn her wings by protecting Lore. Lore is a newly discovered brother to Eiodlin, Shade and Wraith from the first 3 books in this series. This book has some good twists and turns which keep your attention glued to the book. The only downside to this book is the narrator. He is fine reading male characters, but his reading of the female characters is a bit annoying. I wish they would have kept the same narrator from book 1 throughout the series.
When I need to get away from reality I choose to listen or read ..helps me step out of real life for a few hours to a life of imagination!!!
I so love this series BUT OMG...this narrator just sucked...it was hard for me to follow...but i gave it a chance was able to finish this book along with all other of this series BUT so far i have not been able to get on board with the voices but the story is GREAT! I love to listen to books and i am huge fan of paranormal romance but you have to be able to get into the story and this series along with all the books i have been having a very hard time to get myself into these books..there is always someone different narrator reading and all NOT GOOD.......
Highly Recommend! After reading all the negative reviews regarding the narration, I debated about downloading this book but I’m so eager to get through this series so that I can get back to the Lords of Deliverance (which is where I started the saga with Eternal Rider) so I took a chance. I cringed a little at first, due to what I’d already read about the narrator, but then I was absolutely entertained from then on. I found the narration quite good, made me laugh in lots of places but it was sooo great to hear the male characters as MALES and not females doing that god-awful gravely thing to make themselves sound like a man. The plot was terrific as always and I have to say that so far Lore and Idess are my favorite couple next to Eidolon and Tayla. Great work and so very addictive.
Lore. I enjoy it when the author explores the motivations of the hero and Ione does a fantastic job here. Lore is so very complex, his situation so menacing you can't help but wonder how he could ever make a relationship work with any woman. She really does a great job of presenting him and making the reader understand him.
All the scenes between the brothers, but I can't decide if it's the scene with Lore holding his little nephew Raid after they rescued him or the scene when Shade meets Sin for the first time.
When Idess had to leave. She didn't want to and Ione really made you feel how much she didn't want to, but Idess lived up to what was expected of her and you had to admire and respect her for that.
Great work! Loved the narrator! Moving on to Sin Undone!
I loved this story, in fact the whole series is very good! The narration was ok, I did not love his performance but it didn't take away from the story for me.
Romance loving librarian!
I am not disappointd in the story. I couldn't finish.
The narrator was terrible. I wish they has one f the two from the first three.
I love this series, and have listened to the last three. I got to Chapter 3 on this book and couldn't get past the narrator. The story I am sure will be amazing, her books always are. But, I think I will pass on the audio and read it.
I almost didn't download this book because the reviews about the narration were so terrible. But I am really glad I did! I really like this series and was concerned that I would hate this book because of a male narrator. Well I disagree with previous reviews and felt that having a male narrator was appropriate and worked for this book. It's interesting too because normally I don't like male narrators for any of the books I listen too. But since this book is so male centric I think it really worked well to have a male doing all the male voices. To me the narration on this book was so much better than book 3. I hated the narration on that book and couldn't wait for it to be over. So if you read the reviews and don't give this book a try because of a male narrator I think you will be missing out.
