The story line was good, it took me a while to get into the story. But as the characters are developing, it does become harder to put the ipod down. Liked the fact the author focuses mostly on the feelings and experiences of the male lead character, and his obsessions towards his destined mate.
The male character narrations by Mr. Petkoff are intoxicating, and that alone made the story worth listening to.I felt his narration work for the female lead, left something to be desired. The voice/accent combination he uses for makes her sound ditsy and ends up undermining the strong and independent female i feel the author is trying to create towards the end of the story line.
Yes the narration kept up a great pace, adjusting correctly to all scenarios.
I would say no...but since that's exactly what i ended up doing;YES!
The development of the female character. In the beginning, Emma was a wimp. Plain and simple. Through time, she gains confidence and spunk.
He did ok on the male characters but wish the female character voices had been better.
I've read the entire series and have enjoyed the crossover of the story lines as well as development of all of the relationships of characters that pop in / out. I was hesitant to get the audio version because I enjoyed the series and worried the reader would ruin it. Although the reader, R. Petkoff, isn't bad, I wish they'd chosen someone who could do better female voices. There are a lot of women in this series - women who are fighters / strong / spunky. You really need a reader who's able to get this across. Nix for example is a major character throughout all of the Valkyrie books and he made her voice just too wacky (for lack of a better word). Overall - it was worth the listen but it'll be interesting to see how the rest of the series is narrated.
I am thrilled that the Immortals After Dark series is becoming available in audio format. This is the best paranormal romance series out there, in my opinion, and I've read hundreds and hundreds of books in this genre. Robert Petkoff does a fantastic job as narrator for this book. I can't wait to hear his performances of the rest of the books!
no, this is my first, it is a fairly good story, just hard to get into.
The performance was outstanding, I will be looking for more books narrated by him.
Yes, by the end I quite enjoyed it.
I've been looking for a new series after finishing the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Karen Marie Moning's Highlanders and Fever series, and Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. I think this series is going to compete without much effort. The story line is captivating, the sex is hot, and the characters attach themselves to you. For days after finishing the book I remembered some of the scenes and secretly relived their vivid accounting. It will remain on my list of books to revisit again and again in the future.
Enthralling from the beginning. I enjoyed this one.
Action as well as romance. Not boring.
Would have an enjoyed having a woman depict Emma.
went to get next book and it is not on audible!? hope they get more soon.
The narrator, Robert Petkoff… what can I say, but my goodness this man is talented! I’ve read a couple of reviews where some listeners weren’t impressed with his female voices, but you should take into consideration he had to represent about 15 different personalities in this story. From being a Narrator to Emma, Lachlan, Bo, Regin, Harlan etc. He did a fantastic job for a voice actor. He’s very talented. The majority of the time, I forgot it was one voice actor. His portrayal of Lachlan was perfect!
I give all thumbs up for the choice of using Mr. Petkoff. I’m all for mixing up the romance section with new voices. I was getting a little bored with the same voices.
I love Kresley Cole’s stories. The story is a graphic romance, so beware. If you haven’t read Kresley Cole, it might not be your cup of tea.
Dark, different, and extremely erotic! The narrator took a bit of getting used to at first, but he ultimately, along with the author, delivered. Audible please get more Kresley Cole!
