I have read all three books and found after reading each one I could not wait for the next. I even feel like there should be a 4th book just to satisfy my addiction to every character in this book.
The narrator met all my expectations and she made each character come alive with their own voices and personality.
I enjoyed listening to Days of Blood & Starlight. The speaker brought life to the characters and the story was enthralling.
No, it was too long, but whenever I has a free listening moment, I played the book.
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
I have no idea. I haven't read the print version.
What I can say is that this book is a complete switch from the first book. Now Karou has to face who and what she is. She has to figure out who the bad guys are and how to keep herself and her friends safe.
The only thing even close is the first book. The Daughter of Smoke and Bones
Yes, and I came close
This book rips at your heart a little bit. Karou feels betrayed, even though she needs to sit down and realize she really wasn't. You almost wish you could reach through the book and shake her to say "snap out of it." Toward the end she starts to buck up, but at times it gets a little tedious.
I don't have time to sit and read, but I have plenty of time to sit and listen! :)
This book will wrench your heart out, make you mad and cry! What a beautiful set of characters and reflection of what it is to be a hero and a killer. Just an amazing book that makes it really hard to wait to get to the last book.
The lesson Karou has to learn during this book is hypocrisy, but what does anyone and everyone want to do, when the people they love have died? Avenge them. So off she goes to avenge her family and remember who she is but sacrifice herself during it all?
Just a true roller coaster rider. Amazingly written and perfectly narrated.
I've only listened to the story but I can imagine that the audio is more entertaining.
Karou of course, she plays the largest part and she has blue hair, cool.
This may sound strange but I liked the scene where Suzzana and Mic are outside and she notices that his violin case is heavy and then she discovers why. I wanted to say, "Up yours your treacherous B**ch!"
As impractable as it sounds, yes if I could I would
If any books deserves an OMG it's this one and the following 2 books in the trilogy. I not only did not want it to end but I wanted to join Karou, with antlers or not.
yes ! It may be a lot of those who do not like fantasy worlds but it had the wonderful mix of action, friendship and heart wrenching moments for me.
Akiva but only because he is my current book boyfriend haha. No but seriously his actions and love for Karou makes my heart flip and ache at the same time.
I do not write reviews as I have horrible grammar and don't know how to properly review. All I can do is share my feelings for the story and characters. So me submitting a review is a huge deal for me since that means I LOVED this book !
I found this book to be more engaging than the first. I felt like I really got to know each character better. I know others stated that they didn't like this book, but in retrospect I actually found it to be the best out of the trilogy.
This was a book that really peaked my interest and made me feel like I HAD TO KNOW what happens next.
Her narration really brought personality to each character.
There were a few moments between the main characters that moved me.
My only complaint is the numerous flash backs. A few can enhance a story, but pass that it's too much. Often I found myself thinking the book was out if sync only to find the first several minutes of the new chapter was a verbatim repeat of of something from a previous chapter.
The narrators performance adds just the right element to this truely amazing story. I was on the fence for the first book and got it in a 2 for 1 credit special. I fell in love instantly. Khristine's voice is perfect as is her accents for the characters. You always know who is talking and she really brings the pages to life.
Its so in depth without being overly graphic in its attention to detail. The story has a wonderful flow that isn't broken up by too descriptive landscapes.
No, this is a first and I will jump on the chance to listen to her again.
"Loose yourself in the world of Angels and Monsters"
Wonderful synergy of writing and performance! A perfect blend.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean buyer. If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
The story is still engaging, but this book has a very different feel than the first. Probably because it takes place mostly amoung the non-Humans, it feels less relatable. On the whole it's still a good story, but not quite as captivating as the first. As always Zuzana is the high point.
I really enjoyed the performance, Hvam did an excellent job!
Karou - she has a lot of depth.
No, but I am now a fan!
Angels, devils, romance?
