Suppose I am just providing feedback from a fan rather than reviewing... I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narrator performance. I hope there are many more books in the series and that all the characters reappear from time to time in subsequent books. That all relationships and lives, progress and friendships either stay in tact (re-unite) in some way shape or form. In other words I hope Minian and Tiago re-appear (loved their story, passion), Ruin and Carling, Dragos and sentinals continue relationship even though evolving (there is a hint of it in Lords Fall).
Guess I agree with other review that this story might have had a little slower build up, so did the Serpant's Kiss and Oracles Moon, the joining of Dragos and Pia in the first book happened much earlier in the story (and more frequently than other books in series). Also, would like to see Minian and Tiago (maybe even the other characters in subsequent books) have opportunity for marriage and family too (though I guess it is a bit old fashioned of me).
Anyway, thoroughly enjoyed the story/book/series.
Sophie Eastlake does an outstanding job of narrating!
The scene in the bar, and the hotel scenes.
Sorry, I am not really answering the question but would like to say...
If this and/or other books are ever made into a film I hope there is alot of attention paid to select actors who look like the characters described in the book. And that all the key scenes are included. I have seen a number of films recently where I think this was not done and I was very disappointed.
I liked this book ok. The first one was better but I will still listen to the next one in this series. Its worth the credit.
Thea Harrison is obviously of the conviction that one word won't do if six can be found.
The book should have been about a third shorter because of the excessive use of descriptive words. Not horrible. It passed the time.
The story concept is sort of cool, but the endless descriptors piled upon descriptors got tiring... 'He held his lean, muscled body in tightly clenched stillness as he watched her tiny, lithe body gyrate on the dance floor in that scrap of a dress.'
The writing style is for preteens, but the sex scenes make it "mature audiences only."
This is definitely not a cerebral endeavor, instead it is a bit of fantasy that keeps you laughing and wanting more. Every woman's fantasy is to be protected though I doubt I would be able to withstand Tiago's style. The book was fun, fun, fun and a great way to escape the realities of life. Loved it!
There were so many but I was touched by the toughness of Tricks and the gentleness of Tiago.
The author did a great job of capturing her characters. The language and the humor was perfect.
Nothing she was great!
Read this book, it is so much fun and personally I feel it is well written.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
This is the story of T-bird and Trix....Trix is being asked to take on a new role of ruling her people as Queen, it is her right by her bloodline, the thought to be long lost Dark Fae Princess has come out of hiding to take her place on the throne. Not everyone is thrilled that the princess has returned....and so the assassination attempts commence!
T-bird, one of the 7 Sentinels of the Wehyre people (sorry for my spelling guys I listened to it, I didn’t actually see these names spelled out) volunteers to go looking for Trix after an iPhone video surfaces on CNN that shows her own people turning on Trix, in an attempt to kill her, and she flees. T-bird tracks her down…and they become close….very close.
One thing that bugged me about this book was that it just felt it was a go, then not a go, then it was back on, only to be put on hold…a lot of yanking my chain to get to the “good stuff”, we got there eventually, but it wasn’t as powerful as in the first book. It was well worth the price and I will continue with the series…actually I already have and book three is awesome again!
I really enjoyed exploring more of the world that the author has developed in this series. Plus.. Steamy sexy warrior shape shifters are always fun!
There are several points in the book where the quips the main characters make made me laugh out loud. My Husband looked at me like I was nuts!
Continually asking myself "did I miss something?" backing it up and nope, hadnt missed anything. Her first book was fleshed out, had a great story, completed scenes, emotionally realistic yet set in fantasy. I expected this book to do that, but it didn't. It was as if she was totally dependent on graphic sexual exploits. A second draft. Characters had no real depth, I was left wondering "where is the rest of this conversation? How did they get to this particular place? What was the reason for that happening?" I am considering if I should give the author one more try but if I do and the third in the series is just a draft that went to print? I won't be reading anything else she writes.
She rushed the story, Barely introduced more than 2 characters. I still don't know much about the characters but I would have liked to. They sounded like they might be interesting but there was a name, what they did and a sort of "I might like them if I could be told LOTS more about them."
Sophie Eastlake was the best part of this book. The narrator was the only good thing and she kept me going. I will look for other works she has told in such a fine and dedicated manner.
I truly enjoyed this book! I love that each character seems to develop more with each book in the series. But I mainly wanted to praise the narrator. Sophie did an fantastic job of bringing this story and it's characters to life. She made an already great story outstanding!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The lead up to the romance/mating was hot. I enjoyed this story it made my day at work fly by. I did think the bad guy was a little predictable, but I'm not listening to this for the mystery alone. Okay there is a lot of bash talking about Tricks in other reviews but I liked her. She was sweet, silly, and totally lovable character which is partly a façade to hide the scared woman inside. Just because someone loves shoes and clothes does not make them shallow. Tiago was the perfect opposite for her which gave their coupling a sweet factor when he would do nice things for her. I loved it when Tiago catches the guy with the baggy pants. I have always thought the baggy gangsta look was ridiculous. There is a good lead up for the next story and I will defiantly be getting it. Narrator was pretty good, although the some of the female voices were a little high pitched for my taste.
This is a good story but I am not in love with the narrator. I loved the love story between Tiago and Ninan!
