I did not read the print version, but Loved the audio version.
Annabelle was my favorite character because her journey represents a reality many endure but few are aware of.
I loved the scene where the love Zacharel gives her after the negative transformation restores her goodness and beauty, yet shows her the consequences of giving in to the negative,
I am excited to get to the remainder of this series as I was blown away by the Lords of The Underworld series.
I prefer books that make me think to books that make me wish and want, but I thought it time to expand my horizons, at least once. That being said, note I have no previous experience with romantic novels or with this author. The book kept my interest, in fact it was hard to turn off. The end was a surprise. The author's character descriptions were vivid, but not tedious. The fight scenes were minimal, but I assume people who read romance novels want romance, not blood and action. The book moves quickly but transitions from scene to scene smoothly. The author's concept of angels and heaven and spiritual aspects is an "interesting" combination of gnosticism and Christian theology. I found that whole depiction somewhat frustrating and dissappointing. But that's my analytical mind trying to make sense out of something that is supposed to be mere fantasy, so take that for whatever it's worth. Bellmore does a good job, though has only minimal voice inflection changes from voice to voice. I really did not have trouble following who was talking.
I enjoy the "Lords of the Underworld" series and some of the characters are brought into play here. Also Max Bellmore as always is great
Mostly the ending really did have a twist that I didn't figure out until the last 25 minuets. Really good story.
When Zacharel has to make the choice of who shall live and who shall die.
Some books should just stay books......I love that we have audible, but a film would have to cut way to short, and much left out. (like most book to films)
I love Gena Showalter, read all the "Underworld" series. more than once. I also enjoy Max Bellmore. I've listened to him do other narrations and he's great.
Throughly enjoyable; one of the best in the series.
I loved the conflict between Zach and his soldiers.
Very expressive sultry even.
When bad is so very good for you.
The author never fails to come through, this book was well worth the wait. I will anxiously await another installment in the series. Gena Showalter shines again.
I loved how the author wrote The 2 main characters. They were both opposites that attracted and I also loved the ending of the story. Very excited for a second book to come out next year.
I might compare Wicked Nights to Heather Killough-Walden's Lost Angels series! They are both about archangels and them having problems finding their mates and wars in the process. Both amazing series.
No I have listened to any other performance by him but I thought he did a great job.
Yes when we found out that Zacharel's brother was alive and he had to choose. It was just a shocking moment in the story that you definantly didn't see coming.
I liked the story and I liked the performance but there were too many mouth sounds from the narrarator. Come on guys... Don't you have someone to edit that out? It totally took away from the book.
I enjoy the mix of historical fiction with a paranormal, fantasy flare.
I am a Showalter fan, I've read most of her books, started ready them years ago when she was first published. However, this book missed the mark for me. I didn't really enjoy it. Max did well as narrator, as always, but the story was just missing something. I will continue reading her books, one miss out of them all is a good track record.
He does well with demostrating emotion and character.
Yes, story & characters are compelling my attention & besides love the story.
Towards end of story when she sacrifice for her love for him...don't want to spoil but please listen to find out what i mean.
Of course, it was hard to pause during interruptions.
If u like/love Gena's stories this is another one of her best...a must listen or read story & can't wait for the next book, i'll be definitely buying that too!
I would definitely listen to this book again. The reader was great and the story was intriguing.
I liked the suspense, drama, excitement and love.
