It was sooo hard to get through this book. I only read/listened to thewwhole thing to make sure 'Burned' would make sense. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I can't say EXACTLY what I didn't like. But the book all in itself, doesn't even come CLOSE to the greatness of the first 5 fever series books. Why make a whole book about Danni anyway? 'Dude, she's so fecking annoying!'
I don't buy this kind of a book and then enjoy a fourteen-year-old heroine. Not to mention the fact that she is a total brat and not very likeable. I just wanted to slap her. Honestly, I have no idea what all of these awesome reviews are about. I just wanted it to be over.
And the narration was awful. The "Irish" accent was sometimes impossible to understand and most of the time didn't sound Irish at all. Oftentimes I thought I was listening to someone from the deep south. The male narration was good, but the pitch is so much lower than the female that I would have to crank up the volume before I could understand what he was saying!
All in all - probably won't do another in this series. Just Bleh.
I was looking forward to this book and it did not dissapoint. I had liked the idea of the world continuing from a new perspective and it couldn't have been better. Towards the end of Shadowfever I found myself frustrated with Mac. Her way of thinking, her actions, it was physically embarrassing to hear at times. For me, Dani had none of those hang ups in the same way, and her way of seeing the world was so enjoyable. The new characters introduced or elaborated on were great and I want to know more. Ryo and Lor were a treat, hilarious and the voice performance from them gave me chills. I was enraptured from start to finish and happy to see another take on the crazy world.
However, this also makes me horribly disappointed to hear that Burned doesn't star Dani once again. She had so much fire and potential for some great stories with the cast and hearing that it won't continue is like a knife in the chest. That's just how much I love this book, that I'm craving so much more.
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.
