Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
I love Krestley Cole. But this audiobook is terrible. It takes is a shorter story about a Vampire and a Valkyri- two races that hate one another. It is a very poor example of the writer's talent, and also a bad narration duo. The bedroom scenes were numerous, which doesnt bother me, but they dragged on. The male reader sounds like he's Count Chocula. It's just not good when he starts panting like the Sesame Street "counting Count".
I would read a summary on GoodReads or Amazon, then start the series with Hunger Like No Other, which is a spectacular audiobook.
This book is not a necessary to enjoy the series. If you've never read K.C, this might keep you from her work altogether. Skip this and read the rest!! :)
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.
I'm a 54 year old mail carrier. I listen to books around 6 hours a day. Listening to just about any fiction genre. Just starting to review.
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.
Love Dystopian novels, Romance and Murder Mysteries!
This book is boring compared to the other stories in the series. They are longer and more detailed. The series is simply fantastic! This one is short and the story is all rushed.
Oh, and the narrators in this book don't compare to the reader (Robert) of all the other books. He is an AMAZING narrator.
Trust me that you don't have to read this one to know what is going on in the other books in the series. This one could totally be dropped and the world (or should I say lore) would never miss it!
To sum up: Skip it, but not the others!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I'm glad I didn't start with this book. It was defiantly not as good as the other books in this series, I recommend starting with A Hunger Like No Other. I like Kaderin/Sebastian's and Maraketa/Bowen's stories the best. This book did have some questionable sex scenes that was on the verge of rape that was a turn off for me, but Myst loved it so I guess to each her own. I didn't think the narrators where that bad, but I think they should have just stuck with the male voice. I am not a fan of duel narration.
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 book was a surprise. Was not what I was expecting at all. Very unique and intimate in the Valkyrie's and the vampire lore. Mist and Roth ate a very odd couple, indeed.
I fell in love with this series from the first time I ever listened to them.
I always look forward to each and every Kresley Cole book. I've even read the books that aren't on Audible.
