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.
Even though I sort of got used to it in the end, having two narrators did not enhance this story, when the POV changed from her to him or vice versa it interrupted the moment and changed the feel of the characters which had a negative impact on the flow of the story (besides the female narrator read too fast) ...Perhaps if it was a longer, historical type book it would work... But for a short, sharp and sweet paranormal romance which this most definitely was, one voice would be better.
I really enjoyed the story. The simple fact that it is way shorter than most in this genre was a great thing (as well as catering to my ADHD tendencies) ... It didn't rave on endlessly with frilly feelings and pages of prose, it was hard and fast yet heart poundingly poetic and I actually loved it! Well worth a credit I think. And I'm getting the next one, I hope it lasts.
march right into my imagination can't wait to read more she know how to keep readers glued to the pages and smiling the whole time.
I felt the performers did a fine job. If anything the director could have tweeted a few scenes a bit switching too quickly between male and female voices and Russian accents not quite sounding right in the switch.
Way too short
The other Immortals After Dark books because after listening to this book I have been purchasing all the the rest of the series.
I didn't really care for the voices in these book. They were okay but compared to the rest of the series I wouldn't rather have the other narrator.
Female narrator was poor. Male narrator did a good job. Good background info for book one of the series. Don't need this story to enjoy book one. Glad I didn't listen to this one first.
