I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I really liked this novel but I will admit to having a little mixed feelings during the listening. It involved some scenes that were disturbing to listen to (scenes including all kinds of abuse: physical, sexual and emotional) so be warned. These scenes were backstory that was needed but still a little hard to listen to at times. I loved the varying plot lines that were integrated in to the story. I liked the way Singh brought Honor and Dmitri together but I sort of wish the Ingred/Honor link wasn't part of it. It seemed like Dmitri had already come to love Honor on his own without that link though so I was happy with their HEA.
The best way to read.
This book focuses in Dimitri who is an interesting character all the way through the series. The change of focus was a good thing and made the story fresh. The narrator portrayed Honor as a bit irritating at some points, which I don't think the author intended. The story line is great. This book was very entertaining and worth the money I paid.
I have read the previous books in this series and enjoyed them. The author is consistent and her books entertain me. However, I could barley make it through this audio book. The narrator was so bad that I was tempted more the 10 times to just quit listening and would have if I didn't plan on continuing to READ the next in the series. I saw a review, before I bought it, about how the narrator made all the woman characters sound like they were whining and I wish I would have listened to it. It was awful. I have listened to a lot of books and I have never had a narrator ruin one so horribly for me. Take the advice I didn't and don't listen to this book.
I will not be buying anymore of this series. I don't usually write a review because I'm basically not much of a critic and am easy to please. This book is a lot of poor romance and not enough character strength or drama. The emotions of the characters seems redundant.
The book itself is good, but as is sadly the case, the narrator ruins it. I couldn't even finish listening to it. I got the book from the library to finish it.
This is the best book of the series so far
Love, love Demetri
She is now my favorite narrator. She literally brings each character to life. Especially Demetri.
When Demetri found out Honor was his wife from the past
Nalini please keep writing this series.
no. Too much sex.
I have enjoyed other books by this writer but this one seemed as if he got tired. More sex and less plot.
Say something about yourself!
For those of you who follow me you know I have been on a role with this Guild Hunter series. I was starting to wonder if it was the writing that fascinated me, or the people. The previous 3 books have all focused around Raphael and Elena…but in this one they are barely mentioned and yup, still fascinated!
This is the story of Demetri, the leader of Raphael’s 7, a vampire over 1000 years old and portrayed as a cold hearted SOB who rarely feels…other than when he is taunting for pleasure. He has been this way ever since he was made into a Vampire because as he was made his mortal world was shredded. He was made against his will by Isis, an Angel of extreme beauty who wanted him in her bed….it didn’t matter that he was married, it didn’t matter that he was happy with his life as a farmer and a father and a husband…she wanted him, and what an angel wants, an angel gets. When Demetri refused her advances she took him by force, and tortured him into being her slave by destroying his family. Demetri has never loved since, and has vowed never to love again! He had ONE wife, and she was his everything.
When Honor, a guild hunter, is called to the tower to assist Demetri uncode an ancient text she is terrified. She has not gotten over her 2 months of torture at the hands of some sadistic vampires who kept her prisoner and played games with her; sick, twisted, cruel games…and now she is being sent to work with one of the most well known vampire for being sick, twisted and cruel…needless to say this has trouble written all over it.
The dance these two have once again proves that no one does sexual chemistry/tension like Nalini Singh. There are some major twists, kind of foreseeable, but still cool to hear. Still a highly recommended series, and yes I’m reading book 5 now which is Jason’s story…can’t wait!!!
Best in series!
The tragedy of Dimitri and Honors past. How beautifully they come together. The ending was soooo satisfying.
Her variation in characters. When Dimitri "spoke", it didn't seem like it was a female doing a man's voice; it was just Dimitri.
I cried and I listened to the entire book in one day.
I liked the first 3 books in the series, but Dimitri and Honor's love seems much more genuine. Their love story was more well developed in one book than Rafael and Elaina's was throughout three books.
