Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I really enjoyed this action paced story. Although rape is a hard subject for me i found it didn't totally dominate the story line so wasn't to bad to get through. Adam Paul is a wonderful narrator. I love his crisp voice and the way he changes it for each character. A good book and in my opinion is worth 3 1/2 stars more than the 3 I could give. I wish Audible allowed for half stars as well as whole one's :)
It was unpredictable with twists that I did not expect. Loved the characters they were more than sappy love struck superheros running through forests with bullets flying they had faults and dependance versus independence struggles that is refreshing to me a veteran adventure/romance reader.
I have enjoyed the entire KGI series but this is my favorite so far.
Why, Why did they change the narrator? When I listen to several books in a series by the same narrator, I become accustomed to the narrators way of speaking. I loved Harry Berkeley's Rio. I loved his Sam and all of the other characters, even the women. The new narrator is probably very good, but to have him start in the middle of a series is just wrong! It would be like having a different narrator read the JD Robb books. I don't understand!
I hope that Harry Berkeley is available for Forged in Steele!
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
None of the earlier books from this series are on offer to folk in my real life location, so I disregarded the reviews that didn't like the 'new' narrator. I'm very pleased I did as I found Adam Paul to be up to the task of reading this (at times) disturbing book. I'd have no hesitation about buying books narrated by him in future and, of course, you simply can't go wrong with a Maya Banks' book!
Just finished listening to Shades of Gray... I LOVED it!
But why the change of narrator? He wasn't so bad with PJ's voice but the accent he gave the other Kelly men and Rio is gonna take a while to get used to. Can we have Harry back for Steele's story?
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Another KGI hit and it's all been said before - it's a fast paced, action packed, thrilling, emotional, romantic, tragic yet humorous, so basically - a gritty story that has great characters getting involved in a new drama that was very enjoyable. Yes it's unbelievable but who cares - it's fiction.
Worth a credit? I haven't found a KGI book that I haven't enjoyed or regretted spending the credit on - so folks that's a YES and I'm counting the days til Forged In Steele (which is the next one) comes to Audible.
It started off strong although sad. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it.
Ms. Banks was able to tug at my heartstrings.
Adam's performance was great but I am accustomed to the voice of Harry Berkeley. On the other hand Adam was able to change his voice to suit the many persons in the book.
The first hour of the book and the last was emotional for me.
Please Harry Berkeley, leave what you re doing the next time and get over here! Additionally, I think throughout the series that Ms. Banks seems to think that every hostage or persons saved must get married to their saviour. Also, except for a few, the women in her series appear weak and need guidance from big strong men. I swear if I hear another "Babe, you re my woman" I'll scream. All in all a very great series thus far. I would recommend it.
The narrator shouldn't give up his day job because his characters' voices and accents were atrocious. Why take a strong female character in the series and turn her into a victim who has to be rescued? Is this the only way the author can build a relationship between two characters by breaking down the female lead into a weak and damaged character, seriously? I should have quit two books ago when they went all ESP.
A different narrator or just Adam Paul not trying to be such a hick. And don't get me wrong, I'm a proud country girl myself! But it was just too much, too high pitched, too blah.
Yes - I first heard him narrate When Day Breaks (my first KGI book). He was great, perfect in fact. So maybe he needed time to work out the issues.
I still Love this Series, this has honestly been one of the Best Series I've Bought. But this Narrator ruins the Audible experience
I have no idea why they would have stopped using Harry Berkeley, I wish with all that I have that they would have used him for all of the books, he was so amazing! This new Narrator is TERRIBLE his normal reading voice isn't terrible, but everytime he tries to speak as one of the men he Literally sounds Like Gomer Pyle. Having your lead alpha males sound Like an Aaron Neville song really kills the sex appeal, in fact it kills your ability to like the men in this book at all, I just want them to shut up, it takes away my love for all of these Characters.
I cried everytime the Narrator tried to talk for one of the Men
Please go Back to Harry Berkeley for any future Books!
