"My test of a good book is dreading to begin the last chapter." - Thomas Helm
Completely enjoyed this 4th installment. It's long but that's NOT a bad thing. It's all about Ash and his promise to Meghan after she became the Iron Queen. Aside from Meghan herself (she has a few cameos) the characters are all those we know plus a few extras and one large surprise character. It's a great send off for this series end.
One minor hang up; Grim's voice. The narrater is fantastic! His narration of Steelheart (my first run in w/him) completely blew me away. He is a pro at giving each character their own voice. Mycry baby complaint is that Grim's constant whine before and after he speaks is annoying. I suspect it's to express Grim's inner cat. It's kinda creepy but mainly annoying. Otherwise, MacLeod Andrews is stunning.
The voice ruined it for me :/ I HATE when characters switch voices especially pucks :(
No bring the girl back who played megans voice
Love, redemption and wonderful
Ash gets a soul, he's relationship with Puck has gotten better and a happy ending.
He will do anything to be with the one he loves.
Prefers the ocean to deserts, prefers laughter to tears, and will take a good story any day. Discovering a great story? Even better.
The first three of the Iron Fey books were enjoyable, moved at a quick pace and made for engaging listening experiences. Not to mention that the narrator of those books is outstanding. But now we're at book four. One that changes everything around, no longer coming from the perspective of the Megan Chase, the brave Iron Queen, we are now focused on Ash, the cold-hearted, nearly stoic Winter Prince. As a central character, Ash lacks the heart that carried Megan and the listeners/readers along.
I've always liked Ash as a character and I certainly want to like him more. His icy demeanor has been melting a little but that does tend to make it tricky sometimes. While I appreciated the story and the structure, it was some of the little things that drove me crazy. Sending the group through testing grounds that sounded like Indiana Jones and then having the characters say flat out that they seemed familiar, having Ash learn to use an iPad, etc. Those things weren't clever or funny, but instead irritating me as they seemed to be tongue in cheek that feel flat. Maybe I'm being overcritical but I can't wait for the book to be over so I can be done and move on. I just need to know what happens, because despite everything, I want to know what happens.
The narration is okay. I can't tell if the flatness of it is the character or the narrator but either way, the entire story falls flat when compared to the vibrancy of the other books. My advice? Stop at book three.
Great, good, read
not quite sure! Vampire series from a young woman that was a self puplisher
I love his voice and I have bought many books didn't know anything about the books but he has never let me down!
When the fox is holding the rock and he says I will be here when he come back through here. even though he is almost dieing. That hows many young to be honorable no matter what.
I have a great respect for how close this came to our dreams.
As the 4th book it weaved a little off the beaten path but is quite interesting. The end comes to the conclusion few would not have expected.
While a narrator change makes sense due to the shift to a male perspective, it was annoying. I had grown to like the voices used in the past three books (including the male ones performed by the female narrator). Also, the story really doesn't compare to the first three. You get the happy ending that was missing but I just couldn't get into the story that much.
I was disappointed with the choice of narrator. It wasn't that he was really bad, just I had listened to the previous books with the same narrator and now had to readjust to a male instead of a female and their interpretations of the characters. Also, I was unable to listen to the 2nd part of the download because it wouldn't play. I had to finish it on my Kindle. I called customer service and they were going to refund me but never did. Oh well, I have a lot of books and this is the first time the problem was not resolved.
I absolutely loved Andrews' performance throughout this story. He did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life and had me falling in love with both Ash and Puck. When I initially started reading this story I was skeptical about how I would be able to connect considering Meghan was no longer the narrator, but together, Kagawa and Andrews kept me inthralled. Kagawa even answered questions and developed people that I had been prepared to know nothing more about, leaving me pleasantly surprised.
I haven't read the print version yet but This was great!!!!
OmG the whole Ariella Thing!! Heartattacks!!
He wad very good!!
No but if i could listen to it in one sitting I'd be on that!!!
