I really enjoyed the story and look forward to listening to the rest of the series. I just hope the same narrator is not on all of them. I am getting ready to get book 2 so we shall see. You could not distinguish who was saying what as her voice never changed. The series needs Robert Petcoff or Lorreli King to read the story.
The narrator is a pivotal part to enjoying any audible book and Xe Sands is gifted. Just enough insight to keep you pulled in and wanting much more.
That's a tough one, but if I can only choose one, that would have to be Jax for his devotion, honor and snarkiness with his sis and buddies not to mention his love and respect for his K9 partner.
Yes and she just gets better with each book. Keep her busy please as she is very talented.
If you blink the world could change!
Please extend the series by possibly going back into our history, possibly introduce both interesting men and women of the early 17th and 18th centuries.
After reading some of the previous posted reviews that say that this book is very confusing I strongly considered not starting this series by J.Frank. However, since I really enjoyed all of the books in her "Nightwalker" series I figured I take a chance. I was very happily surprised! I had no trouble following the story line nor keeping track of the characters. I think if you liked the Nightwalker series you'll probably enjoy this book/series. It seemed like a good beginning into a similar "world". I just purchased the rest of the "World of Nightwalker" series books.
So, I actually stopped and started this book about three times. It was so slow to start...and a bit confusing for me to follow while doing other things. The herone name, to me was such a strange name too....
I had to actually sit and listen to understand what was going on. Jacqueline did a wonderful job of laying the foundation of this series with this book 1 and though just a bit slower than the other 3 that follow, it was well worth it.
Generally once I start something movie, book or project I have to complete it, but 3 1/2 hours into this book, I just couldn't do it, it was long and drawn out. I honestly don't mind the authors voice, its different, and it was probably the only reason I continued to listen to the book.
The Judge and Jury is still out on this, I really did not care for this new series as much as the others.. If you read " The Host" by Stephanie Meyer's the story is somewhat like that. Except one has to die and agree to share their body with the spirit of the body walker One minute you may be hearing the main character and the next the other personality So basically you have two individuals sharing a body. I may or may not go on to the second book. Read or listen for yourself and see if you like it. The narrator does and excellent job and there is a twist to it, not a bad story,
Maybe, although this was a great book it was a little slow for me
The introduction to the Nightwalker world
As always, XE Sands delivered a great performance
Maybe, although this one was a little slow for me I'm looking forward to the next one
This was a nice start but felt a little incomplete to me. Somehow, I just kept feeling like I missed part of the story. But it was a good tale and I will buy the next one because I definitely want to know more.
I walked into this novel with a complex bias and high expectations. Part of me is excited to read a Frank novel and enjoy some of the best characters and world-building in a PNR and the other part of me is resentful that this new spin-off series had taken the Frank's focus away from the Shadowdwellers series which is one of my favorite PNR series of all time.
If you are a fan of Frank's work you must have read her Nightwalker and Shadowdweller series (if not, read them, now!). This new series takes place in the same world and revolves around a new species of Nightwalkers known as Bodywalkers. This installment introduces the reader to the world of the Bodywalkers; the origin and the process involved. We meet Docia and Ram as the main H/h in the story and within them we meet the Bodywalkers that share their bodies. Docia is a gentle person who hides her insecurities with quirkiness. Ram is an alpha male, extremely loyal in his duties and protective of Docia. There is a slew of supporting cast members that will help move the series a long. Frank does a great job in writing dialogues that deals with two distinct personalities and souls housed in one being. I was never confused or left to wonder who was doing the dominant thinking or talking. I think the issue I had with this novel is that because it is the first in the series, it had a lot of foundation to lay. There really wasn't an opportunity to fully engage in the main characters. It felt rushed towards the end and it made me feel a bit unfulfilled and disappointed. I also wanted to read more about the other Nightwalkers. I know this series is different in its own right, but I was hoping for a cameo or something from the other Nightwalker characters we've met in the other series.
The peaks and troughs of her voice was hard to hear at times. I found myself adjusting the volume too many times which I find distracting and annoying.(less)
QUESTION : DOES LISTENING TO AUDIO BOOKS MAKE YOU SMARTER? If so, I'm. Freakin Genius!
I'm a fan of Jacquelyn Frank and of Xe Sands. So I'm a little disappointed that I couldn't get into Ms. Frank's latest Nightwalker branch-off series. I couldn't get over the whole one body, two souls concept.
But from reading some of my fellow Audible Book Readers reviews. A lot of you like this series very much. I'll have to wait for the next book (which is already in print) and see if it is more appealing to me. You never know.
I just wish she would write the 4th book in the Shadowdellers series. Now, that is a HOT & interesting series. One of my all time favorites.
