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!! :)
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.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This is a great story. I've actually read this before (I think this is my 4th reread?) and loved it enough that I continued the series.
Myst is a Valkyrie and Nikolai is a (turned instead of born) Vampire and those 2 breeds usually don't mix. The story description gives the gist of the story and I don't want to get into spoilers but I will say that despite how things started, Nikolai and Myst find a bond between them and manage to get past their initial preconceived notions and misunderstandings to cement that bond. While I hurt for them both when things were rough, I loved how things ended and their HEA.
I greatly enjoyed this story! I loved both Nikolai and Myst and was rooting for them to work things out from the beginning. Things weren't always easy between them but I was so happy they worked things out in the end. Overall, I thought this was a great story and would recommend it. :D
* There were 2 narrators, a female for the parts from Myst's PoV and a male for the parts from Nikolai's PoV. I think both did a very good job.
I'm glad I got the audio version of this book because , the story idea was good, but without the narrators , overall it would only be a three.
I read this book many years ago and when all of the audiobooks in the series went on sale I bought them all up. The first one I played was the current release but after that I decided I wanted a refresher on the entire series and started the first book again using audible, best purchase to date!!! I absolutely loved having two narrator's!!! It adds a whole new dimension to an audiobook!
In the first book in the Immortals After Dark series we learn about the Lore and meet many of the future key players and fall in love with Kresley Cole's amazing world!!!
Downloaded the first two books b/c it was on sale. Didn't realize it was an "adult romance". Absolutely loved all of it. Such a great story and it's so well written. I don't know why everyone is hating on the male reader, he's very good. I didn't much like the female reader, she often read way way too quickly.
