I've been reading about vampire, vampires, vampires in this genre and here is a book about dragons. It's a nice change.
In the beginning, where Mist's friend lay dying.
He brings the story to life. That's why I enjoy audiobooks so much. The narrator can create the voices and accents better than I can in my head.
It had a bit of predictability to it, but it was still an interesting start to a series.
Yes! Hot, exciting, great story! Lots of foreshadowing Can't wait for the next book!
I'm always looking for strong female leads - this book delivers.
It's also nice to find a male counterpart who isn't perfect :o)
I thought the author did a fantastic job with all the characters - made it very easy to listen to.
I sure hope the author is locked away somewhere madly writing more in this series - can't wait for them.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I've come into this series a bit late having just found it and, as I love anything 'Shifter' I thought I'd give it a try (despite the mixed reviews) and I was very happy I did.
Firstly, let me start by saying I didn't like the basis of the story:- a Dagon-shifter finding a high energy woman to impregnate and bear him a child then die - not an endearing quality you want from your hero. But thankfully Bastian, the Leader of the Nightfury Clan, realised this was wrong and regretted his actions towards Myst albeit a little too late and happily made amends.... with some surprising consequences.
However, I loved the Dragon-shifter world - a brotherhood made up of lots of handsome, leather clad badass Alpha types wearing shit kickers together with all the snappy quick dialogue and funny banter that went with it and I guess that's where the similarities between Ward's brilliant, awesome and, IMHO cannot be beaten, BDB can be found. But set that series aside as this is a good and worthy listen and there's plenty of action, passion, sex, romance and conflicts between the Nightfury Clan (good Dragons) and the hated Razorback Clan (evil Dragons with a hate and kill all the Humans, agenda).
The product placement peed me off a bit as did the WTF question when the heroine just drove off from the Lair which was supposed to be in a cliff and magically protected with an impenetrable force field around it? However, I overlooked these flaws because of the enjoyment factor I got from the rest of the action-packed story.
Worth a credit? I would have been happy if I'd spent a credit on this but at under $10 for a 12 hour listen I saved my credit for a more costly listen and so I just bought it - and don't regret it.
I enjoy this series. It's fresh and creative. I just wish the narrator wouldn't keep putting really long pauses after every "and". Okay, the author could use that sentence cadence less often, but that's her voice. Read through it like a person would think it or say it.
The narrator was really good. There seams to be a lot of world building for the author to build on..let's hope the next one is as good as the first cause it's downloading now..
I felt like something was missing from the book. There were a lot of instances were Myst forgot about the baby. Like when she freaked and ran away. I think everyone forgot about the baby then. And at the end, the only mention of the baby was from its father and never again. I would like to know where they do that at.
This story reminded me of Kresly Cole and I love KC's writing. She is the best in my humble opinion. I love her Immortals After Dark series. I dont think this author is a rip off of JR Ward and I think this author's writing is better. I liked the narrators voice but wished he could have given each character their own clearly distinctive voice. Overall I liked the story. I wish the author wouldn't have made the main female character seem so stupid. When I roll my eyes when I'm reading a book I'm pretty much done but I was already at the near end and decided to finish it. Glad I did.
No. The premise sounded interesting and like it had potential I just cringed and rolled my eyes while listening to it. The dialog was terrible, unrealistic weak heroine. Honestly I couldn't make it thru the book I could feel my intelligence dropping during it. The concept was good just the relationship moved to fast. I wanted to slap the characters.
Didn't live up to expectations at all
There was only so much this narrator could do with the dialog and how the story played out
The female lead - just horrible
Save your money
This is such a great story the action, the love, the suspense it all just draws you in. The narration was good. Very animated. For a man he does women voices pretty well. I will definitely be buying the other books in this series.
