I started out listening to books for work and now have become addicted. Every where I drive is a new adventure...
I loved all the characters in the book. Diaz and Mac as partners completely balanced each other out. Diaz was intense and focused. Mac was a smart ass and worked in controlled chaos. Their leader Bach was always the embodiment of control and even temperament. All changes when one little girl needs rescued and they discover their new strengths which comes from ...
I really enjoyed the interaction of the team with the addition or Anna and Shane along with Bennett. The book is so descriptive and makes it easy for you to have a complete vision of what is occurring. You can feel all the emotions that Mac goes through and how each character has so much to gain from their new alliances. I don't think I would ever had enough of Shane and would be using every form of persuasion that Mac has at her disposal in the pursuit of MORE!
I hope that the next book focuses on Bach. I love his character and I think I understand what happened in the end ... So excited for more! Great book and excellent narration! Melanie brought Mac to life and made you feel every emotion with such intensity. Patrick was the perfect navy seal and then was able to switch the compassionate Bach making both characters completely believe able. highly recommend!
The characters in this book were so two dimensional I didn't care about them. This was basically a romance novel with a shaky sci-fi element thrown in: I don't care how "integrated" your brain is, it won't allow you to suddenly breathe fire! It wasn't that there were so many sex scenes, but that they were poorly written--Diana Gaboldon she is not--with characters repeatedly described as "so beautiful" and "ruggedly handsome", but little more. So, no, I won't be reading any other books by this author.
The Passage of Power by Robert Caro
They were fine as narrators, although Patrick Lawlor got a little over dramatic at times, probably trying to improve the story.
Well, at least I finished it.
The story is hard to listen to due to rape, torture and murder of little girls - usually enjoy Suzanne Brockmann books but the villians were just too awful.
I would buy another book but not in this series (it seems it will be a series as questions were left unanswered)
I like these 2 narrators and have enjoyed them narrating previous SB books.
I kept taking my headphones off to let the story continue without me listening - never want to hear little girls tortured and screaming.
Sexy characters and would have enjoyed this much more without all the details of the crimes being committed.
Say something about yourself!
I loved this book. It was a bit long in some places but worth it. I was a bit off on the things that happened in parts of the book. Such as graphic upsetting parts on what happened to the young girls. The graphic sex parts was fine with me as I have listened to other books by SB. I know some would find it too much. So it would be nice if audible would add something to say there is such things as graphic sex talk. Same sex love senese. So some people would know what's ahead for them. I was OK with all of it. And as always Suzanne Brockmann did not disapoint me.
Books books books
Not at all a bad book. I don't think I've ever read anything like this. Action packed and entertaining.cover looks cheesy but not a cheesy book.
Author: yes...TWO Narrators? NO
The male narrator Patrick Lawlor when he gets excited sounds like the actor who plays 'Booger" in the "Revenge o the Nerds" movies, its REALLY annoying and why would you have two narrators? Just stick to one PLEASE its too darn confusing!
For me neither narrator was a good performer it really took away from the book. I guess i will have to read it because I hated both of them,
I truly enjoyed this book despite the fact it is not a genre I'm usually drawn to. The characters are engaging and the plot and story line well paced with a good balance of romance, sensuality, mystery and action. If you are a fan of Suzanne Brockmann this listen is well worth the credit.
Science Fiction people will enjoy this book - nothing like the troubleshooters series
Was not impressed
Disappointment that I spent the money/credit
There didn't seem to be a single piece of character or plot development that wasn't driven in some way way by an assault on a woman or girl. Ultimately at least 30% of this book was devoted to torture porn...
There was not a lot in the summary that suggested this would be the case.
Women, even the toughest ones were reduced to damsels in distress and every one of them had a moment of character defying stupidity.
