I do not review many books that I listen to, but this was absolutely horrible. The female character voices in this were horrible. I could not stand it, I listened for the first 5 chapters and could not do it anymore. I have read a lot lg reviews where people complain about the characters and this is the first that I was simply unable to continue listening because it grated on my nerves so much.
The character is so dark, mysterious, sexy with a little bit of crazy mixed in. I love the Russian accent of the character and all of the voices the narrator performs.
When he realizes who his bride really is.
The narrator portrays each character flawlessly. He brings forth each characters' personalities by performing different accents. I would never experience such strong emotion from these books have if I read the book myself rather than listen to Robert's version of them. Robert Petkoff is one of the reasons I listen to audiobooks instead of reading them. I hope he does all of the Immortals After Dark series because they leave me hanging with only books 1-5, 10 and I want to hear all of books 6-9. I really want to hear Dreams of the Dark Warrior book 9 because Regin is one of my favorite characters. Her witty personality cracks me up and Robert Petkoff's version of her makes it even funnier. Rock on Robert! Great job!
Yes, I listened to this book in one sitting! I spent all of my work day, lunch hour, and after work to listen to this book in one sitting. I love this series and can't wait for the others. After hearing Lothaire, Kresely Cole leaves us wanting more! I can't wait to see if they ever find Fury & Nix and what becomes of Christophe?
This was, once again, a pleasure to listen to and one that I could not put down. As an avid IAD follower it was great.
I could not put it down! Great characters and emotion. The depth of the whole series linking into each other which makes it unique.
I cannot wait for the next IAD to become available on Audible.
Some authors paint there heroes as dark or dangerous or both. When you start to read the book you find that they have changed and now are much nicer.
Not in this case Lothaire is a very dark guy.
I can always count on Kresley Cole, Christine Freehan and J R ward to give me what I'm looking for. Lothaire is just that kind of hero (dark and dangerous). This book had a great story line and the narrator was excellent Robert Petkoff.
Say something about yourself!
Ok so audible doesn't have this complete series recorded. So, for some reason I listened to shadow's claim then lothaire. But was completely wrong anyway because they're 6 books to read before lothaire (2nd to last in series). OMG!! This is my 2nd fav in this series. A Hunger like no other being #1. Kreseley does a good job where if you happen to read out of order you won't be lost at all, but you just get EVERYthing if you read in order. Stop reading this and go buy the damn audio version. Personal note: ALL books in this series should be narrated by robert petkoff. I'm now reading kiss of a demon king and I miss hearing it read by petkoff. I try to hear him while I read in my head, but it's just no damn good!. Audible! Hurry up and record the rest of the damn series!!!... I feel like samuel l. jackson.
Truely love this book, the entire series is wonderfull, can't wait for the next book ! One of the best series I have read !
Lothaire actually had faults, but was able to admit his faults, but was passionate to a fault.
was almost the perfect man !
couldn't have been better !!
I laughed and cried for the character all through the book
well worth reading the entire series.
I didn't read the book, I only listened to the audio, but I enjoyed it so much. With Robert Petkoff's narration I was able to enjoy Lothaire's Slavic accent, and his brides mountain twang... I could never have done the job that he did. With the right narrator (in this case it was) it was far better than the print version, however, there are some narrators that I would prefer the book. If Robert Petkoff were the narrator...I would never purchase another book, it would be audible all the way!
I really had no favorite character in this book. It was just more of a "fun" book for me. It wasn't a deep romance like the rest of the books in the series... lets face it, Lothaire is evil... with a little "fun" in him. Hopefully his mate will iron out his rough edges and make him a little more sane. I did love watching Lothaire get so frustrated though. (See, Robert Petkoff made it a play or a movie for me rather than a book!)
I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT ROBERT PETKOFF'S PERFORMANCE! He can do everything. Male, Female, any accent you can think of. Emotions!! Sex! Oh My! And if the book calls for a sigh, thats what you get, a cough? he coughs, a yell? get ready to turn down the volume. He doesn't just read the book like so many other narrators I've heard, he actually ACTS it. I see what he is saying! I wish he could read ALL of my books to me... oh what a day that would be!
This book made me laugh a lot at Lothaire's frustration.
Lothaire...especially when he had the wife beater on and he said Really? REALLY?? I fell out laughing.
Personality and sexiness!!!!
When he would have gave het his heart for the second time!!!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Enjoying this series very much. Got a bit of everything in the books. Many thanks for such a great listen. :)
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
The reasons I couldn't stop listening are many and varied; I wanted to hear the mystery of it unfold, the narration was so amazing I couldn't get enough of how flawlessly the story came to life, the romantic scenes were oddly addicting, and the nature of the world created by the author was enthralling.
The narration was the best I've ever heard. I will probably buy books narrated by Robert Petkoff simply to hear his amazing naration skills.
The story was unique, impossible to stop listening to, and the characters seemed genuine- well constructed and fun to read about.
I really can't pick- there are about 10.
Yes! But in my attempts to ease my 1.5 hour commute each day, I had to fight myself to stop listening to it during the workday as well.
I'm currently completing this book for the second time, and I got it about a month ago.
