If you enjoy paranormal romance, you'll enjoy this book. The story wasn't anything that stood out, but I was entertained.
There were gaps and thoughts were not always carried through, however it grew on me. In the beginning there was too much of two characters, the two having frequent sex with no plot to draw you in. Other books have more plot to go with the romance and sex. If you stick with it, other characters and a plot develops. I guess there is or will be another book because a girl is brought into many scenes, she is eluded to being special, in the end a paper is passed around with every one gasping over intelligence about her. That is a cheap trick to get people to buy the next book.
I have listen to many books with vampires and supernatural. This one is weak.
The last half of the book is entertaining. Other books are more put together like Jeaniene Frost, Jim Butcher and Deborah Harkness.
The narrator's performance was done well.
I bought it on sale for 4.95 it was worth it. It could use more detail in the battle scenes and humorous self talk. Banter between characters is never over done.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I've listened to this book multiple times (I loved it so much I had to listen more than once). The characters are believable (assuming you can believe in the supernatural) the romance is sweet and sucks you in and the action keeps things interesting. I've listened to many books and this is one of my all time favorites. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a great action/romance. This book gets 2 thumbs up from me!
The male character in this story is a bit too emotional with some significant baggage from his past. His is sensitive about how his lady views him and is scared that she will fear him so she needs to keep reassuring him (I mean really not my thing). The story line is quick to start and then slows down a bit too much, of course it picks up by the end of the book.
I read this as an ebook and liked it...kinda'. I planned to read the next in the series when it was released because I was interested in the secondary characters--not the overall arc. When it did release, I wasn't motivated to purchase it anymore.
I got this audio book on sale for $4.95. At that price I thought I would give it another try. I just couldn't finish it. Once again, the H/h didn't hold my attention when other characters were introduced. I wish I could trust the author enough to take a chance on the next book, but I can't. It's really too bad, because once again I want to know more about the other characters.
While pandering to Creationists, Ms Duvall writes a pale imitation of Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter Series.
Sure. Sometimes the first of a series is lame.
No, first one. But she's a great narrator.
Listen to another one?
The interaction between Roland and the other characters.
I loved Roland's personality,but I enjoyed Sarah's determination.
She blended in and you forgot about the reader. It was the characters that were talking.
Book Lover :}
Really liked the introduction of the characters and I am looking forward to getting to know more of them individually. I loved the humor and the love story. It is also great to see very strong female characters that can stand up and defend themselves and the one’s they love.
Lets see, how to describe this story as I don't want to offend the aurthor in any way but as I was listening to the story it felt predictable. Please don't get me wrong in that it was good and good enough that I purchased the second book but there wasn't much I couldn't forsee coming ahead of the story, so that is why I didn't give it a much higher rating.
Narrators can make or break even the best of stories. Kristen Potter has a very pleasant voice and her depictions of the characters was well done. I would listen to another story by her again.
In the present day it is very hard to create a different vampire story. The genre is extremely popular and many of the stories have familiar tendencies. Now having said that I adore the fantasy genre the most and consider this book / books to be enjoyable but not great.
