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.
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.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
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.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I have stuck out this series even though it is not my favorite, but not too bad. I will say that this book is the best one so far. I was on the line about continuing on with the series but I think after this one I might. I tend to like series better if the main characters in each book is different and up until now the series has been about Rafael and Elena. But now we get to find out what has happened with Dmitri and Honor. This is a dark tale so if you are squeamish about bad things happening, don't read it. But if you have manage to read the series this far, you have an idea what it is about. Don't read out of order though. I recommend the Psy-Changling series also by Nalini Signh.
I think the story is interesting enough and the characters so well developed, that I'm sure I will listen to it again one day. The Psy/Changling stories are such favorites, I didn't expect to enjoy these Arch angel, Vampire and Hunter stories as much as I do.
I've wanted to hear Demetri's story from the beginning. His back story and this present love story does not disappoint.
No one scene stands out, but the unfolding of the story and relationships keeps me involved until the very end.
I listen to books as I travel hours for business in my car. Nalini Singh's books get me so involved I can miss an exit ramp... but hopefully I'm still a safe driver. It makes the ride seem so much shorter.
