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
I had to make myself finish it because I used a credit. Otherwise I would have stopped. I need to look at my library before I download a book because I have listened to this author before and hated the book. Live and learn.
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 love to read but with my busy schedule I barely get a chance to. However, audiobooks allow me to "read" while I manage my crazy life.
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.
I'm interested enough to go to book 2....i'm hoping the momentum picks up and the heat being told to the reader exists, personally I didn't feel it.
