I love this book, so when I saw that they had an audio version I was ecstatic until I started listening to it. I thought it would be like the other Drake audio books, Boy was I wrong, it was so bad that I had to stop listening.
Nothing!! !00% Nothing, it was horrible, maybe it's because I was comparing her to Alyssa Bresnahan, who did the other Drake sisters stories, but I'm sorry I didn't like her performance at all.
They should redo the audio book and have Alyssa Bresnahan, narrating!
This is the most boring book I ever listened to. Started reading in September and still not finished in December. The narrator makes the book go slower. Story line just drags on and on.
No story line, the first book I ever read that I couldn't finish cause it was so slow!
Horrific performance, did nothing to perk up book!
All the characters!
Give me my credits back!
Narrator reads like she is reading to 6 year olds
Normally love Christine Feehan's books but really did not enjoy this one due to the narrator.
Reads almost as bad as a see spot run book
The book was middle-of-the-road for this particular series. I like the series but this narrator was so irritating that it was difficult to listen to. She makes women's voices sound squeeky - like cartoons. She needs a lot more practice and better vocal ranges.
No way. I completed the book because I used one of my credits to purchase. My daughter could not even listen to five minutes. The written word is awesome, however, this version would deter a person from ever picking up the book.
The book version. Read it for yourself. Great story.
I would if they liked the Drake Series... but I would warn them about the reader.
Not if I can help it.
I Love Christine Feehan, and this series is awesome, but the reader is just aweful for this story, All the men sound like rusty old men or cocky teens. not mature military men.
Retired Political Science professor from a community college. Especially like Legal Thrillers.
This wasn't my cup of tea. Guess that I'm not into witchcraft and a threatening fog.

Worst narration, made it 1/2 of first chapter and gave up
I have purchase other Drake sisters audio books and enjoyed them. As far as story goes, this is a good one and fits well in with the Drake sisters overall story arc. Unfortunately, this is a new narrator for this series and she is terrible! The voices she does are awful, high pitched and whiny at inappropriate times and the reading is stilted. And although I would like to know how the story ends, I don't think I can bring myself to finish this book. I will definitely NOT be purchasing anything else using this narrator.
The story isn't terrible. It's just a quick romance novel. A reader shouldn't expect more than that.
There are too many characters that are forced into the text. It's enough to mention the other sisters once or twice, but the characters in this book constantly seem to be casually mentioning a string of first names: "Kate and Davy and Michael" or "Susan and Larry and Tiffany" or "Dan and Matt and Jackson." It's as if the author is smacking her reader in the head and shouting, "Don't forget about these guys! I'm going to write about them in the next book."
The narrator is the main weakness with this audiobook. She reads like someone who has never read the text before, like one of those kids in high school English who, when called upon to read aloud, butchers the text. Sentences are halted and then resumed in the middle. Inflections are wrong, ruining the meaning of the author's words. The characterizations are more like caricatures rather than people with normal patterns of speech. The romantic lead's brother is an adult but the way the narrator reads him, he sounds like an obnoxious 9-year-old. I suspect this reader was chosen for her ability to create a soothing voice, like the central character in the novel, but the publisher should have remembered that the narrator also needs to be able to convey effectively the author's narration and the other characters in the book. This was a real failing here. I hope Feehan doesn't allow this narrator to wreck another book.
I'm still interested in the Drake sisters and I'll be curious to see what happens next.
