This is a five star story as every other Larissa Ione book. I highly recommend the whole series but it MUST be listened to in order. This is a complex world that the author developed and you can get lost if you do not follow the order.
Narration: I dont particularly like Erin Bennett as a narrator. She tends to go into "robot mode" and doesn't really add that intensity to the story that I expect from top narrators.
Now we know Reseph instead of just the evil Pestilence
The story ties up all of the loose ends and brings it full circle. Larissa Ione is great at this - ref. Demonica Series. Can't wait for Reever's book!
Gave all of the characters a voice.
Hot New Vacation Spot: Sheoul-gra
or Adapt -a -Hellhound
The characters are really well done. It's one of the things I like best about her books. In this case the plot was a bit problematic. It was a bit contrived but not so much that I wouldn't recommend it. It just wasn't quite up to her usual five star ratings. I know part of it is set up for her next book but still.....
Erin Bennett did a great job narrating.
QUESTION : DOES LISTENING TO AUDIO BOOKS MAKE YOU SMARTER? If so, I'm. Freakin Genius!
If your a fan of Author, Larissa Ione. You are going to love this book. I did.
Credit Worthy? YES!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Of the stories in this series, this one is one of the best. Best dialogue of the series, as the author had to put all the books together, but still keep your interest without making it a commercial informercial
when the group is together holding the baby at the BBQ
Erin is the best reader in this series. Her female voice is very good, great pace. Her male voice could be deeper, but the dialogue in this story is fast pace so, it is a great listen.
I am not a great fan of paranormal, so this one is a great one for the genre.
This particular installment is one that you have to have read the previous books to fully grasp the activities in this book. We start off almost immediately after the last book ended, finding Reseph butt-naked (no complaints here) in the middle of snow, snow, and more snow where a kind-hearted and self-sacrificing Jillian finds him and drags him to her cabin to nurse him to health.
Reseph is not what I had expected because as a spectator, I've only ever saw him as Pestilence. Even though there were intermittent memories brought on by his siblings as to the type of person he was before his seal broke, it was hard not to see him as absolute evil. The Reseph we are introduced to in this book is playful and so very sexual I felt almost sorry and jealous (ha!) for Jillian. There was no way for her to win the battle of her heart when it came to him. Reseph on the other hand falls hard for her and even without the full capacity of his memories, he knows he loves her and is positive he never felt that way about another female. Their love story is sweet and Ione does a fantastic job at softening the reader to Reseph and she is a master at creating caring and loving, yet insanely badass chicks as we see in Jillian.
My biggest complaint with this book is that it needed to be longer! Reseph had a lot of ground to cover after the destruction he had done and I felt like the story moved very quickly, but not in a fast-paced, action-packed way, but in a way that left the reader detached from all the happenings. Results or after-maths were told in dialogue rather than shown. I think I had the same issue in the last installment where I felt like the story was not as richly depicted. I also was expecting a bigger to-do when they came up against the Aegis, especially after what happened in the last book, but when the scene came I was a bit disappointed. I mean I'm not looking for a Michael Bay rendition, but more of the complexity and development of the characters during these types of situations. Also (I always seem to whine about this, but I can't help it, I love the characters in this series) I wish there was more of the past characters besides the four horsemen, i.e. the Sem brothers and their growing family.
I guess I'm just being greedy. I love the Lod and Demonica series that Ione has created and I want more.
There is a huge revelation and when that part came around I was whooping. Yup, whooping and yelling "I knew it, I knew it," around people who didn't know I was "plugged" in (*^.^*) which then required some explanation as to what I knew.
I can't wait for the next installment! It's gonna be brilliant I can feel it! I hope Ione doesn't stop writing this series because it is one of the best!
I am a avid reader!
Yes, I love this series! To have started with the first Larissa Ione book and followed the entire series was a great story. I would highly recommend for anyone that has not read the first book not to start with this one but to start at least with the first Lords of Deliverance book.
I cannot say without giving away part of the ending.
I laughed and cried during this audiobook.
All the books in this series are a fantastic listen worth the credits to start with the first Lords of Deliverance.
The story is good but the narrator is just awful. She simply reads the text as if it is a technical manual! In fact I have hread technical manual or meeting presentations to be read with more feeling than she reads this story!
I liked the Lords of Deliverance series until this one. There were too many flashbacks and Indian stories. I actually returned this one for a credit on my account.
Yes, I like Ione although she uses a lot of the same phrases in her books.
