Thea Harrison did it again. She pulled off another winner with this story. Unfortunately I did feel like it dragged on a bit towards the end. Don't get me wrong the ending was suspenseful but it was a bit long winded and I couldn't bring myself to race through it like with Dragon Bound.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Yes I have one more to go, but this was such a disappointing difference from Dragon Bound.
Not make a 217 year old fairy sound like a whiny immature Barbie Doll, ugh. The banter between a 217 fairy and...an older then time Thunder bird was just ridiculous, I felt like it was a scene out of "Mean Girls". Age is suppose to signify experience, knowledge, grace and wisdom, but instead you get annoying drunk sorority girl that gives it up in a night club....classy.
Disappointment, I really wanted the characters to be more mature for their substantial age.
so far this is my least favorite it the series, Dragon Bound is still the best.
I am a mother of two rowdy boys. I listen to audiobooks while house cleaning, on my commute and while working out.
I loved the first book in this series Dragon Bound but this one missed the mark for me. I had to force myself to finish it.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Audio is better!
Great job as usual!
Tricks has her moments, LOL
I love this series and it's worth the credit.
Originally I skipped this book based on reviews, but I disagree with the poor ratings. I tried to go to book 3 but felt the gap too much so went back and got this one. It was a good story and definitely set up book 3.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
Does it make anyone else crazy to always see the studly body on the front cover? Yeah, I get they're strong and ancient and powerful... yadda yadda. But I personally really do not need the eye candy that isn't close to reality. Okay, my rant is over for now..
Of the first three books, this one is my least favorite, but I still liked it and finished it all the way through. In fact, I had it playing even while washing dishes, doing laundry, etc. The only thing is hearing it over the vacuum.... I do need all the help I can get on making doing chores tolerable.
It's important to listen to all the books in order, as each one is referred to in the next one. Thea Harrison paints a picture that continues into the next book. I would like to see more of the previous books people, but at least they are mentioned or show up once in a while in the next books. It does help to have that sense of 'who' is who throughout the storyline, as well as how they connect up.
Again, my only complaint on the content of the books is too much lengthy sexuality. It was in listening to these books that I really got in touch with how annoying I find the fabulous loving with perfect bodies that goes on and on and on... how can it leave any of us satisfied with our own imperfect bodies and lovers? When I find myself fast forwarding through the sex scenes I realized how long they were, and how 'same o same o' paranormal romance books can be. That makes me sad. Are we women really that easily entertained? Are we the same women who complain at all the perfect bodies on TV that do not look like anyone we know? Where is reality going and is it healthy for our society?
If you agree, mention it in your own review. This is how change happens! We have to speak up. And please, understand I am so not a prude in any way. But if I can get irritated, I wonder about what others are thinking too. Okay, I'm putting away the soapbox now...
Good story and very entertaining, but do not listen to the sex scenes around kids. Even teenagers might get the wrong idea on realistic sexuality.
In my heart, I believe that all fiction authors are gods. They create worlds and give life to people who only live in them.
I enjoyed this book, but perhaps not quite as much as the book before and after it. Still, it's far and away better than most of the stuff out there so definitely worth the credit.
I really enjoyed the story and the narrator. The author is really making me want to read more about these characters. I can't wait to read the next book.
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
Narrator speaks tooooo slow. Had to turn it to speed talking. Good story but the draggyness of her speaking made me feel impatient. Looking forward though to rest of series (just on a faster speed).
I wasn't expecting the character focus of this second installment. It was nice to listen to the story unfolding.
Tiago. What a great character. I was expecting the neanderthal thing, but he had some unexpected depths and some pretty hot dialogue.
Again, the ability to look forward to Miami traffic.
If you use audible for entertainment, this is just the ticket. Thea Harrison writes well and Ms. Eastlake is a great narrator.
