Not a big fan of the overly sexed storys but it was mad all the worse for having the main character being 14. Also it seemed to stand alone from the Fever series as if just trying to make a story for the other characters. Didnt tie in well with how book 5 fever ended. but it was tolerable. Especially if your like me and get to the point where you have to see where the story goes...good or bad.
No, I love this series.
Her attempt at an Irish accent is absolutely awful, it varies between English, Australian and Southern. I couldn't concentrate on the story and her inflection while reading is very odd and hard to listen to. I will avoid other books by this narrator.
I recommend this book as a story or to someone who has time to actually read but honestly I would tell someone to skip listening to it if that's their only option.
I enjoy reading and listening to books, especially thrillers, romance, fantasy and more...
Couldn't decide between an overall 3 or 4 but the narration tilted the scale. The narrators did a good job of the many different characters. The voices and accents different enough that the storyline flowed, a tough job with so many characters.
The book itself was enjoyable with many different characters. And I mean different... from a blood and gut thirsty which to an oversexed hybrid prince. At some points I felt intrigued at others as if i was reading an adolecents book. Overall, I thought it was a good read and would listen to a second book,.
I'm a caffeine zombie suffering from constant book hangovers.
Intriguing, witty, smart.
that the authors most fascinating two characters whom I assumed were just going to be strong side characters (Dani & Ryodan) have their own stories to be told in elaborate detail.
this was a double edged sword. i really loved Ryodan's voice deep dark and mysterious like the character himself. however I wasn't impressed with Natalie Ross's voice for Dani it grated slightly on my nerves, it distracted me for awhile in the beginning but eventually adjusted because the story was so engaging.I suspected the reason I had a hard time with Natalie Ross's voice was the reader is an adult trying to act out young a teenage, and it just didn't fit the parameters of the character them self and how I envisioned them.
The Moment You Kill Everything Changes
The Author's story telling is fantastic but I couldn't enjoy this book with the underaged main character, Dani and sexual tension between the male characters in the book. I wanted to shake my head and ask Karen Marie Moning... "why?". It drastically made this book weird and not one I could enjoy. Is she writing for young adult book market?
Fantastic voices which made the fantastic world and developed each character's personality seem real.
Maybe young teens,or those who want to relive the 80's
Yes, it's very close to turning me off
I didn't have problems with the narration. Maybe the accent sometimes but I can usually gloss over that when listening.
Hmmm .... About 75% of them
Knowing that it was a spin-off, I reluctantly bought the book because I thought that it was background for the next book in the series. And the other reviews raved about it. But a third of the way in and I was increasingly getting annoyed by the whole thing ... Story line, conversations, cliched sayings and phrases. This should be under YA, not part of the Fever series. Or did I miss that part again in the book reviews?
narration leant itself to the storyline beautifully!
I had read it in 3012 when it was released and was slightly off put by the lustful storyline in contrast to Mega O'Malleys youthful age. The innocence plays much better and makes it more funny than creepy thanks to the narrative performance.
Yes, I love the author and the narrators
Yes of course!
I love Phil Gigante's voice. It's resonance and accent works perfect for Karen's books. I also love Natalie's voice, tone, and cadence but Dani's accent and her childish foul language drives me crazy. Not Natalie's fault.
Dani and Christian
Dani gets on my nerves with her language and childishness. It is also disturbing to think of her being 14. I would have rather Karen skip a few years ahead to when Dani was 18 instead of picking up right after shadow fever.
And Christian's character has just turned so disturbing and sad. His turning and his actions are just hard to swallow. His talking to Dani is so uncomfortable.
It was hard to get through. I'm not going to lie. Think I am going to return it because I just can't even imagine trying to read it again. I would actually like to erase it from my memory... So sad and disappointing... Sorry Karen. I love you though!!
