I have listened to many of Sylvia's books......the majority of which are performed by Jill Redfield.
The narrator on an audiobook is what makes it or breaks it. The narrator's Irish brogue just wasn't believable and it was horribly inconsistent.
Once again, Day weaves a world of fantasy that never ceases to surprise and captivate. The concept of dream guardians and dimensional travel is well laid out and explained. I appreciate that Day kept this first book connected to it's main characters while also setting the stage for the series. Compared to some of her other works, this books isn't quite so blatantly erotic, but is still sexy and not for those easily scandalized. I guess, if you're reading in this genre then you should know this already.
The narration was okay, although the accents were a bit exaggerated at times and I would have chosen someone like Jill Redfield or Tavia Gilbert for a series like this one -- a series with a plethora of both male and female characters needing definite vocal distinction. With books like these, it's imperative that each character is easily distinguishable especially since the characters weave in and out of all the books -- connected in some way to each. Narration can easily make or break a series like this and for me, the decision to purchase the series as a whole had more to do with my appreciation for the author than because I felt that I just couldn't wait to listen.
It was OK, but I think I would have enjoyed re-listening to one of her other stories.
No, I would recommend her Georgian and Crossfire series.
I was neither impressed, nor turned off, with the narrator.
If I had not already listed/read Georgian or Crossfire series, I would have said "Maybe?".
I really liked the story of this book, Unfortunately this reader made this book very boring. I read the book and could not put it down, however listening to it, I was very disappointed. The only times she changes her ques is when making a dialogue, but her narration is very flat and monotone, In other words, she bored me.
She was very monotone, she lost me and bored me.
Haven read the book but the audio one is great.
Still new to audible
Voice she gives to the characters
Into the twilight
So far the Crossfire Series is the only writing Day has captured me with. I've tried the Georgian series, The Marked Novels and the Renegade Angel series. The Dream Guardians was my final attempt to like her other story lines, and I'm deeply dissatisfied. I eagerly look forward to the next Crossfire book, but I give up on her other storylines. Note: Very poorly read with little to no inflection.
If I had time to read the second I would instead of listening
narrator has a good voice but not enough inflection to make you really care about the characters. Very dry.
Yes and I did
The power of adenians love
The what she did the accents
I and waiting for more
*Perfect* character portrayal in tone, accent, timing, depth, and delivery; giving them a literal, visceral, heart-stoppingly real presence. *gasp!*
What an unexpectedly delicious surprise. Although I already usually love Sylvia Day's writing, the description and reviews did not do this, or it's sequel justice.
Simply spectacular, and *perfectly* narrated to impart teeth-clenching perfect feeling to the characters. *YUM*
Only complaint would be a bit of an odd ending (more like the completion of a chapter, with so much left unresolved. She simply MUST finish the series....hope the negotiations with the publisher resume quickly or other arrangements made, because I can't WAIT to read the next book in this series!!
