As a professional crochet and knitwear designer I have a lot of time to sit and listen to books. Makes the work day better!
The narrator made all the men sound nasally and similar. Not enough emotion when reading the more intimate scenes.
This is PJ's story and how the love of one man can save her. This as always was a great listen and I do recommend it.
Maya Banks continues to create a world that is possible. Her character developments are outstanding and the story lines, although very difficult to listen to, has the ability to grab the listener and hold us until the very end. I cried many times because of what PJ goes through. Cole surprised me, I thought he was just a joker, taking life as it comes with a big laugh, no seriousness to him, boy did this book ever straighten me out. He was there for PJ and he stayed there with her. The story was well developed and had a smooth continuous flow. I recommend this book because of the well developed story. The content is hard to listen to so I will warn you of that . But I will not tell the story here.
Adam Paul's narration is great. There were a couple of times the voices confused me, but over all his voices for each character was well developed and separated.
Another great read.
I love Maya Banks and her writing and I throughly enjoy the KGI series. My issue with this book was the narrator. I just couldn't listen to him. Every character's voice sounded like they were whiny country bumkins. These men are suppose to be big strong intelligent alpha males and the narrator's choice for their voices made them sound like dim witted hicks who couldn't find their way out of a paperbag. I loved the story but was very disappointed in the chi u ce of narrator.
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!
NO!!!! The narrator has ruined this book!!! He made the Alpha males all sound weak.
This story had the potential to be very powerful but because of the awful narration it lacks the emotion that this story contains. I will READ the book and NEVER listen to another book from this narrator. Watch for the name, if he narrates a children's book or maybe an Elmer Fudd book then he's your narrator but romance, mystery and suspense novel then NO do not listen. You will regret it.
Awful!! Makes fun of southern people! The accents are terrible and the alpha males sound like weak girl!!! Very hard to like a strong male when this idiot makes them sound like cartoon characters.
The traumatic scene with PJ could have been very moving but again narrator just killed this book.
Would like to get my money back since I will not listen to any books by this narrator again and even the ones that I have waiting to listen too. This was a extreme waste of money because I just can't listen to this jackass!!
I Love Maya Banks KGI series! BUT..... this new narrator is horrible. I would recommend people read the books and not listen once you get to Shades of Gray. I was so looking forward to PJ's story and next Steeles story but i will NOT be listening to them that is for sure. There is no emotion when the narrator reads, all the voices sound the same and its hard to listen to, even for a short time. BRING HARRY BACK!!!
Say something about yourself!
Liked Cole and PJ
Thank goodness the heavy and hick southern accent was not a part of this book. The last book may me hesitate to listen to this one. Adam Paul would do better if he sticks to a light drawl if any and focus on the differences in the characters.
Preferred to break up over a couple of days.
I prefer one narrator for a series. Especially one that developed the sound of each character though out the series. Susan Ericksen does this the best with the In Death series by JD Robb.
