I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I enjoyed the first book, but this one was much better. The excitement in the plot and also the sexual interaction was good. This is a must have if you've started on this series. I'm looking foward to book 3.
Loved it just as much as I did the first one. Loved Mirren and Glory and it was nice visiting with Aiden, Krys, Will, Hannah, etc..
I'm going to read Will's book now and I do hope the series continues.
The narration? Amy McFadden does have lots of emotion and great inflections in her voice but she doesn't do mens voices worth a damn. Sometimes I wasn't sure if it was a male or female talking. If she just lowered her voice she would get nothing but 5 star reviews. She does do Will's story so I will suffer through it so I can see what happens next.
Folks the narrator can make a break the book, and Ms. McFadden is the wrong one for this book. I have heard heard her before and thought she was good. I like the story--think I will change my mind and give it four stars, but not the narrator. She rushes it. I know Angela Dawe reads fast, but this was way too fast. Not sure I will get the third book since Ms. McFadden is performing unless it's a darn good price. Don't you wonder sometimes how they decide who will perform a book and if that person has gotten good reviews, why would you change it?
I am glad I bought the second book The story got better and the characters more interesting. I think there is a lot of potential and I am interested to see what happens next in the series. This book does not, however, make you rave about it. It was enjoyable and has enough meat to it that you want to keep listening.
Not great, not bad. Enough to keep me lightly engaged while doing other things. Some weakness in plot and skips in storyline suggesting bad editing. Will consider the other books, but not a top choice. Will look at public library instead of using a credit.
In book 2 of the Penton Legacy, Aidan’s second in command, Mirren Kincaid "the slayer" was captured by Mathias Ludlum, who hoped to force Mirren back to being the tribunals mercenary and/or his personal goon. During this same time, Mathias kidnapped a young Gloriana Cummings, a clerk at a Circle K gas station, because he sensed some special powers he thought he could add to his arsenal for his war against Aiden & the Pentonville Community. When Mathias was unable to break Glori, he locked her in a room with Mirren, a vampire who hadn't been fed in a month. But being a master vampire helped Mirren keep some control around Glori, and when Mirren was rescued he took Glori too.
Thus began Mirren & Glori's journey towards coupledom! A great, though not easy adventure. But it was a helping process for the slayer and the freak. This author has made a seemingly simple & predictable storyline very engaging and fun to read. I couldn’t stop and I loved the that tortured hero struggle that Mirren was going through. He wanted the love, but felt he didn’t desrving of it due to his past as an executioner for hire. I also love Glori’s strength because she was much tougher than Krys. Glori had been battle tested by her family and thus a perfect match for Mirren. I love the various characters and how they were intertwined. I can't wait for book 3.
Again, the narration was spot on and kept me engaged. I like her various character voices. Great job.
reading about a big tough guy falling in love with a sweet girl is so funny.
Glory is my favorite. she is strong and willful
I ended up having to read the first of the series, really didn't care for the narration. With a change in narrators, I listened to most of this book, only switching to reading a few times. She totally nabbed Glory and Mirrin in my opinion. I had to chuckle at times with their interactions.
This has shown to be a very interesting series, with an intriguing concept of Vampires trying to survive with the humans, after a virus has poisoned most of the human blood population. Penton is a community made up of what I call the good vampires, being harassed by one of the governing Tribunal vampires, that is afraid of Penton's sucess. All in all, there is a lot of suspense and back stabbing going on, with a good dose of violence, compassion, and love.
Within this, the author has created many memorable characters, whose stories develop more and more with each installment. I have really enjoyed these two books, and am on to the next "Omega"
One of the best Audiobooks I've listened to in a while. Amy McFadden did a wonderful job in the narration and really brought out the feelings and emotions of the characters in the story.
I first read Redemption and fell in love with the people if Penton. The Story line is amazing and keeps you deep into the story through the whole book. Strong Characters in each book that makes you want to hear more about them. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens for the people of Penton.
