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 would only recommend a book with a 4 or higher rating
Nothing worse than listening/buying to a series of books and the story line changes to focus on other character in this world. I found the previous 3 books recomendable. I could not even finish this book.
this book should not even be in this series. It takes place in the same world but does not even have the two main characters in it. I am very hesitent to listen to the next one in the series. she should of ended it as a trillogy
not book 5
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.
As an audio book it succeeded and fails. The pace was nice and world becomes alive, but the character sounded awful. The accents were strange and forced. The handsome men sounded like trolls.and ghouls.
I'm a fan of all the characters.
Yes, but she needs to stop the accents.
This review is late. I forgot what a horrible experience I had with this book and ended up wasting a credit on the next one, so I figured I would go ahead and write both reviews to help me remember not to purchase Book 6 on audio...
I would recommend the book, but not the audio version. Nalini Singh is an awesome author and I have enjoyed all of her novels and short stories so far. I read the first 3 Guild Hunters and decided to listen to the 4th during my commute to and from work. BIG MISTAKE. It isn't obvious from the sample, but the narrator's inflections are off just about every time she speaks in character. The men sound like they're straining to utter every word...as if they aren't actually moving their mouths. And the women all sound like they're crying. I am surprised I actually finished listening to the whole thing.
Singh does a fantastic job advancing all of the series subplots while still maintaining the primary focus on Dimitri and Honor.
All of these men do a great job with Male and Female voices: Phil Gigante, Robert Petkoff (also great with accents), Jim Frangione
These women are also great narrators: Kimberly Alexis, Emma Galvin, Angela Dawe
I would go see this book if it made it to the big screen.
The narrator really ruins this audio. I'm glad I read the first three books because if the audio was my introduction to the series, I might not have continued with the subsequent entries.
It's a great feeling to think that I can be a friend to so many characters through books thanks to an Author's imagination and our freedom
A good story. Just enough balance until the scenes that tore my heart at the deep abiding pain of the main characters.I did not want to cross that line, but got to the other side as they were brief. i admit having my finger poised over the FF button.There was of course strength, endurance, and a great soul deep love that one knows is rare. no two love stories ever exactly alike. The fight scenes made me shiver along with the cruelties that takes a mature mind to if not understand,that you don't have to be other,to know they exist in humanity. The Guild Hunter is resilient.what they lack for in mortal weakness (which is sometimes their greatest strength ) they make up for in determination,skill,guts and heart. Tender moments abound but they skip closely with horrors. I would have only asked for some laugh out loud moments. Not to say there wasn't a touch. This author does not write for the faint of heart. The series is a keeper in my library. I do reserve the right to ff ten seconds.
I baught the audiobook series for 4 times and I just cant stand it any longer. I really hate! hate Justine Eyre's voice. She makes the women all sound like these helpless winney victims. They don't talk like a real person for god sake!! Even as the narrator she is so bad. I would rather read the rest of the series than listen to another time with her voice.
