It is the type of excellent writing that grips you and wont let go. I have listened to this book like 5 times. It never gets old! Full of Mystery, Adventure, Obsession, Violence and fecking great people that pull you in and make you want to know more about them. KMM knows her stuff.
I do love Batman and Robin : )
Excellent performers ..voices done so perfectly i couldn't think of better narrators. Phil Gigante really brings the story to life!
You won't be sleeping ..edge of your seat ..need to know now.. where did that come from..laugh out loud did that just happen..what is going to happen next..no definitely no sleeping tonight..
KMM is one of my favorite authors from her Highlanders Series to her Fever World..loved every minute of it..Yes Dani might only be 14 but she is damn entertaining..maybe no great sex in this book but KMM knows how to build to an excellent climax..and this is building the story at its finest.. can't wait to see what happens next for the "Mega". Hope it ends with Batman to her robin all the way : )
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.
