I think the way the reader does the voices of the men makes the book for me.

These books are quickly becoming one of the best series I have listened to over the years. They are well written and contain just the right amount of action to keep you interested until the end. I'm sure you can read these out of order, but I don't advocate doing that. To fully understand and appreciate the power of the elders, you should start at the beginning and continue through. The narrator is pretty good and doesn't disappoint. Thea Harrison has a wonderful imagination! Go dragon, elves, genie's, and all of her mystical magical creatures!
Thea Harrison is one of my favorite writers and Dragos and Pia are one of my favorite couples. I read this story when it first came out in book form. I purchased the audio version because I am going through my fifth or sixth re read of the series. I generally do not like female narrators but this one is perfect for all the voices. This book goes into more detail of Dragos and Pia's evolving relationship. I love how the author writes; it is so smart, interesting and humorous. You should start at the beginning of the series and read them all; each book is totally worth a credit. Thea Harrison's books are Keepers!
I have an hour commute (each way), so I listen to at least 4-6 per month. A bad narrator will kill a book for me faster than anything
The story itself is great...I appreciate the authors ability as a story teller so much more when the plot doesn't center around how hot the guy is and coming up with different words for hot (smoldering scorching incendiary and so on) and that is the case for this one, although there is a bit of that. I was very happy to hear more of Pia's tale.
I really enjoy learning more about the politics and the elder races in general and this book covers much more of that.
The narrator does a fantastic job...one of the best.
The cover with the muscle dude...all of the covers for this series...are just so cheesy and cringeworthy. I hate to think I would have missed a good story because of a beefcake picture but it's true. I almost did. The book is good and deserves a better image than a cheap bodice ripper style hunk with a bare chest.
Having purchased this in the series, I hadn't realized it was told from Pia's pov- so wonderful, brought it all full circle to the first book. This is a lord of the rings style epic- really - very insightful and inspired. Intense for sure, but lovely and fun and beautiful too. Can't wait to get started on the next one!!!
Thea Harrison has hit a homerun with this story. Dragos and Pia are my favorite couple in the Elder series. I hope we get to read more about them and their son Liam. Sophie Eastlake does a wonderful job narrating. Sophie made the story come alive and transported me to a wonderful fantasy world. I know I will listen to this story more than once.
Lory "New audible addict."
The fast pace of the story.
There is no one thing, it is everything about the Elder Race Books that I love. I am listening to everyone I can find. I just can't get enough of these stories!!!
Pia is my favorite... but Dragos is pretty cool.

Just keep writing, please.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: New York and North Carolina, contemporary
Genre: Paranormal romance
Sophie Eastlake is a good narrator for this series. She's good at differentiating characters from one another, and she does male/female voices well. Her pacing is very good.
I liked this book better than the first 4. Lord's Fall gives more of the relationship between Pia and Dragos, and explores his challenges with dealing with others. He does have those personality issues. These are wrapped in a compelling plot that will keep you listening. It's an excellent addition to the series.
Definitely worth the credit.
