This book and series is well written and superbly narrated. I love the creativity of the story and how I have come to feel so strongly for the characters and torn for the relationships. Descriptions and details keep the story alive in my mind. This isn't one of those books with dry spots, so plan to be enthralled by the adventure!
An epic adventure.
Well aside from our lead female character, I'd actually like Finn. In light of everything, his character remains comical and rolls with each situation by easing the whole "End of Everything Good" to a continued read. If not, the bleak out look of their lives would seem tragic and pointless to continue to the next book.
Keith Nobbs wasn't bad but Emma Galvin's ability to incorporate several different characters leaves them all equally favoritable. Cajan (sp) French - Jack, Irish- Joules, Cali surfer dude - Finn, Aric the old Hungarian (or was that Romanian?), and even Evie our Louisianna fille are some of the accents she does well.
From book to T.V., Arcana Chronicals comes to the big screen.
Although talanted Emma Galvin is good, she's slower on the delivery (but can you really blame her-multi accented characters. Best listened to at higher speeds. I enjoy listening to this at either 1.25 or 1.50 x speeds.
I loved getting to know the characters and being able to listen while I am at work.
Jackson is who I love, the misunderstood guy from the poor side of town
I love hearing the strong Cajun accents
yes, I would stay up late to finish all of Kresley Cole's books at once
I would love to have this entire series in audible
I'm addicted to Audio-books!!
I Love the narration of Keith Nobbs.... Hes was great!
I feel like when I listen to the books the narrators bring it to life
Maybe but I found the writing confused
Apart from the torture and the depressing world, the story didn't make much sense
They did a good job of making the characters seem real despite the rather stilted dialogue
The story continues but I wouldn't want to read any more
Seems very overrated. Maybe young teens like it better.
I just love this book. The characters are great, I love the narrator Emma Galvin ( I also like Keith Nobbs but this is the only book I've heard him in so far). And I just gotta say I LOVE JACK!!! I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
One of my favorites!
I just recently got up to date with Cole's IAD series. When the withdrawals for waiting for the next book began, I decided to give her Aracana Chronicles series a try. This is a YA/New Adult/Apocalyptic/Paranormal Romance novel. After a solar flash leaves the earth in an apocalyptic state, select survivors begin to discover they've been reincarnated to play out their roles in a deadly game. These characters are based off a deck of Tarot cards and come with their own unique super abilities. The first section of the book is a little slower, as it's centered more on character development. But the action comes pretty quickly once the solar flash hits. Jackson Deveaux, the romantic interest, is super hot. I don't know that I've read a romance with a Cajun for the lead.
Both performers did outstanding jobs!
