I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
My first thought when I finished listening to this book was how I wished it existed when I was pregnant and not feeling hot at all... It is an ode to love, sex, pregnancy and how the process can bring a couple closer than ever. So much has been said about the Fifty Shades series being mommy porn (which I listened to and loved) but I believe this is the real deal.
Ms. Ione has written another amazing addition to the Lords of Deliverance series. I am amazed as how she has been able to make each book even better than the previous. This is paranormal romance at its finest. The world she created is very rich, the characters complex and the storyline is completely unpredictable and very very interesting. There are so many reasons why I loved this book. First, For most of the story the heroine is pregnant and Ms. Ione has created such a sensual bad ass pregnant lady and the love making scenes are so hot!! This book is a must listen for any pregnant or new mother who needs to feel sexy and empowered once again.
I never knew what to expect! Romance stories tend to be very predictable but definitely not this one. I also love the way the author can write a dark story but in a way that it works and is not disgusting. I could visualize a movie while listening to this. At the end of the book you get a preview of the next book Rogue Rider which is Pestilence (Resive) story and OMG it sounds just as amazing as all the other books in this series. I did some research and found that Rogue Rider should be out by November. So it's a long painful wait to see how the series comes to an end. I sooo recommend this book!
Narration: I am definitely going through some audiobook Karma. This is the second series I've been listening to and loving the narration and all of the sudden they change the narrator to Erin Bennett. I do not like the narrator at all. I have Erin Bennett in my narrators to avoid list but to my luck the books by my favorite authors keep being narrated by her. It's not that she's unbearable it's just that all the characters sound the same and you have to pay extra attention to see who's talking. And at times she sounds monotonous. Oh well, but the story is so good, steamy, interesting and unpredictable that you should listen to it even with the less than desirable narrator.
What is there NOT to love about the book, okay the narrator but I'm going to talk about the book first. The story is AMAZING. I love, love, love this story and I thought it was going to be hard as hell to compete with Ares (cause I'm comparing it to the other male of the group that has been published so far) but Than sooooo holds up. He is sexy and aggressive and hot and demanding and pretty much all together perfect.
I wanted to hate Regan for what she did, I really did but I found myself really, really liking her. That is one of the things that Larissa is amazing at...taking a character that we should all hate and twisting it so that we end up rooting and cheering for them. I LOVED the twist at the end of the book and was so surprised cause that wasn't even anything that I saw coming.
And weaving in the folks from UG is perfect. I love seeing the brothers coming into the stories.
Okay now, for the narration. Really???? REALLY??? What were you thinking? What a horrible Horrible choice for narrator. They should have stuck with Hillary Huber from the other books cause she is the best with the voices.
If you can just move past the voice and listen to the story, it's amazing. I highly recommend this and I can't wait for Reseph's book.
A mom, a wife, a friend, a happy ending addict, an audiobook junkie, a wine lover and geek wanna -be. I'm constantly looking to be blown awa
Larissa Ione delivers without disappointment the best entry to this series, no complaints at all with the story, in fact, I LOVED IT! But unfortunately the narration by Erin Bennett was less than ideal, despite her ability to bring the book to life during the narration parts in a nice tone and pace, the distinctions of the voices were horrendous, and as a result her delivery and characters portrayal felt flat and unimpressive.
I have to say that the book felt like she was just reading it without putting any effort to accomplish an accurate depiction of the characters.
I wish they had kept the same narrator from the previous book, Hillary Huber, then I'm sure I would be giving this audiobook the all around 5 stars it deserves.
Would I still buy the the audio? Yes!! I still managed to enjoyed it, the story is so good it survives the poor characters transitions.
To be enjoy as part of the series.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
I am always surprised how the these authors can make each book better than the last. Larissa Ione did not disappoint in Lethal rider. This book is awesome. It you have ever been a pregnant women you will love how this book progresses. Than is the most understated of the Horseman and it was nice to see how he comes out of his shell and treats Regan so good. They had a lot to overcome and Than realizes the beauty of a pregnant woman.
I am excited to see how Ione will finish this series when it comes to Reseff. Great Series!!!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Erin Bennett does a good job! Her pace is faster and matches the storyline. Ms Huber is a bit slow. Ok Ms Bennet cannot do a deep male voice, but her fast pace levels the playing field. This story is great and very creative of Ms Ione. The Demonic series is too much for me. Way too much information. This series is much better,and some of the characters do appear. This series has better editing.
You do need to listen in order as too much is lost when read out of order.
I loved the other two books, and the narrator. Unfortunately the change in narrator almost killed this audiobook for me. She did not have the inflections that we are so used to with the characters we love. Ky's voice was normal!, and had difficulty knowing who was talking. Other than that, the story was AWESOME!!! I love Than. The book is definitely worth reading or listening too, just be aware the narration might take away from the awesomeness of story.
Not sure. This narrator was not one of my favorite of the series. I wouldn't have an opinion either way.
Thanatos! He is betrayed by so many, and I was rooting for him the whole story!
Maybe, I think it would depend on the author.
It definitely made me hold my breath in a few places in anticipation of just where the story was going to go.
I enjoyed this series & was very much looking forward to this book but... I couldn't get past the first few chapters. I am a firm believer that men HAVE feelings and rights. Every bit of this book that I did manage to choke down made it abundantly clear that a mans opinion IF differing from ANY females is worthless and selfish. I guess if I were a feminist I'd have loved this book. Unfortunately I'm not and needless to say I wish I could have returned this book... waste of time.
This is Book 3 in the Series, and its just as good as the others - interesting, complex, unpredictable - everything a book should be and more! Larissa Ione is really an amazing author, and the Lords of Deliverance series is just brilliant. The heronie, Regan, is a bass-ass women, even while pregnant - you just love her. Thanatos is not the typical hero - he is covered in tatoos and has a dark edge, but he is very compelling and attractive.
The only downside is the narrator. UGH! I don't know why they changed the narrator in the middle of the series, but Erin Bennett was a bad choice. It was hard to tell what character she was doing, and I found her to be very boring. She is also the narrator for Rogue Rider - the last book in the series - which makes me angry. I had to talk myself into listening to it, but I really love, love this series, so I will suffer the bad narrator, again.
