The decision to switch the male/female narrators at the end of each chapter, rather than by the characters speaking, resulted in two different voices for each character which was distracting and at times confusing. I listened to the end only because the story was so interesting. More books by this author please and use the narrator for the next installment - who did a fantastic job on both the male and female voices.

Not that I know of.
I had heard of this series but haddn't started it. I expected the first book to contain world building and there really wasn't any. Characters even the leds were almost no existant. A total waste of my time and my cash. I bought the second book at the same time I doubt I'll bother listening to it.
Yes, I love this series!
Pretty much all of it.
Enemies to lovers
I almost didn't buy this because of the bad reviews. The narration was better than I was led to believe. I've heard worse!
At least the character's voices weren't mindless drones.
Say something about yourself!
Being that this book was short, I think the book was dammed good. Luved the story line of feuding species and the forbiden friut concept. The sexual contant of the story was great. Again let me point out, for not being a long book.
This was the start of a fantastic fantasy world. The author pulls you in with the descriptive words of the characters. The wonderful narration only adds powerful reactions to the senses.

The love scenes were good and original. I was disappointed in the absence of a real plot outside the relationship. Never figured out what the wars were about. Mere domination? Hard to achieve depth with focus on only two people who have no real interaction with others. The minor characters effect nothing real. It is well written and well structured. I will look at the next book in the series before I give up. I am a fan of Kresley Cole.

After listening to 15 other IAD installments that were narrated by Robert Petkoff, making it through this prequel was an uphill battle. It's my own fault for saving this one for last. Hagan Verret & Simone Fomhar were perfectly capable readers, and Nikolai & Myst's story was good, but definitely not among Kresley Coles' best. It was also shorter than what I'm used to which was another factor that made it less enjoyable than some of the full length books.
Yes, I lover all the books I just love listen to the book
Love the story I can't wait to see what happen next.
