This was the first SD book I have listened to I enjoyed every minute of it.
Less concern with physical descriptions and the story implied eroticism
I love the voices. He keeps me interested and he is not dull an monotonous.
disappointment and boredome
I would not recommend this book to anyone who is interested in adventure fantasy. However, if you are interested in romance this may be a perfect novel for you.
Oh you have to be a grown up to listen to this series it is sooo smart. If you are 21 or 71 this is a good choice. Grown ups because the emotions in this will make you wish, make you dream that 1 & 1 equal 2. Pay attention this could become a long running series and you will want to be there.
There is forbidden love going on but its so honest that you don't know which way to go. You know it's good when your not exactly sure if it's okay to cheer for the bad guys in a book. Here comes the grown up part "who are the bad guys"?
I have this and book 2 and have really enjoyed them they are so hot and spicy. Our narrator can deliver such a sense of control and heat at the same time. Good going Sylvia Day keep us coming back with these stories.
man talk about a hot angel, knows what he wants and aint afraid to fight for it. hot sex good action and story line leaving wanting for more. you can't beat that.
New vampire universe.
I haven't. But I like his voice. It's soothing. I'm a bit disappointed that he won't be reading book 2.
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
It's in the top ten. Most of my top ten are wriitten by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Dark Hunter series or CoN series read by Holter Graham) or Jonathan Maberry (Joe Ledger series read by Ray Porter), but this one's in there! It's an interesting twist on the fallen angel concepts and the origin of vampires and Lycans.
In terms of originality, I'd compare it to Born of Shadows or Time Untime by Sherrilyn Kenyon. In terms of utilizing mythology, it compares to the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. I love all those series and they're all interesting and original in their own right. This one is completely original from all the other books I read or listened to. That's a rarity with romance or science fiction.
i have listened to Luke Daniels. Even though he's always going to be Atticus O'Sullivan to me, he's really stretching his talents by doing this one. He's done well differentiating characters from the narrator voice of the story. It's awesome to hear him develop his talent.
I wish they had Mr. Daniels narrate the other book. I only get the ones read by men, and even then, I only listen to a select few. Mr. Daniels is one of the few. The next book is read by a women, so I'll be buying it, but if you don't have those hang ups, I would definately get the next book.
I became a fan by listening to the Crossfire series from Sylvia Day. That author is amazing! She makes very good descriptions of the characters and their sex scenes. Very steamy book if you like that kind of stuff. She never disappoints when it comes to that subject.
The story is different from any other fantasy/romance book I've listened to so far. I'm use to listening different books about vampires but renegade angels puts a different twist to the story WITH vampires...how they're made, survive, etc. They give you a good definition of each kind of character in the first chapter which helps throughout the book. At first I thought it was boring to hear the definitions but it begins to makes more sense if you listen further.
Luke Daniel's performance has kind of a harsh voice as in too serious of a narrator. I get that the story is intense at times but it's kind of like listening to a news broadcaster who's relaying a breaking news story. The female characters he portrays needs a little work. Because of the narrator's low tone, the female characters lack personality.
The moment when Adrian chooses to fall. I think I gave away too much...but that's the moment the book moved me.
Give the book a chance. The first few chapters are kind of boring but it gets better towards the middle and end. The series leaves you wanting more and I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out. It's worth the purchase but not the credit. You get your money's worth if you just buy it.
Nothing! This story was terrible. I could not get past the sex which was most of the story. Don't get me wrong, I like a good steamy read,but throwing in as much sex as you can think up does not make a good book.The writing was childish and boring.The only thing I liked was the cover.I love blue and red togeather
No! There are many good writers in this genre.
What he was reading.
All the sex scenes.
This could possibly have been a good story, all the elements seem to be there.
Not so much after reading other Sylvia Day books, however there was a lot of passion and forbidden sexual encounters.
Not as put together as her other books, took me a while to follow characters, and what they were doing and their standing in the story.
Luke Daniels performance made this story. I would only have given it 2 stars if it were not for his great narration, which made it easier to understand the who's who.
I just finished book 2 in this series. Has a different narrator, but the story is much better and easier to follow. I'm hoping book three will just get even better.
