I think the audio version blows the print version out of the water specifically because of Robert Petkoff's voice. This narrator brings life to the story, and not just plain old normal boring life, its like the content is exploding straight into your face that you're immersed in it!!
The whole series is crazy awesome! Automatic download indeed!!
Hot, Angst, Addicting
I've re-downloaded this book twice now - listening to it 3 times already and I'm thinking about a 4th. It's the perfect blend of angst, lust, hate, and love (of course)! Who doesn't love a hot Scottish werewolf? Seriously.
EVERYTHING. The tension. The paranormal war. The Lore. The romance
I actually thought I would be bias that a man voiced a romance novel, but Robert was perfect. He's very talented.
Absolutely. I wish I could've, but I had to go to work.
One thing I did not like is that Cole left us with a cliffhanger for the next story. I HATE and LOVE that. I'm ready to buy the next one for that story, but it's not even out yet or titled!! No mention of it. :( So I guess I don't like that Cole left me with a craving for more, however, she reeled me in and I kind of want to buy all her books now. Good for me, bad on timing and the budget haha.
Not previously, but I will in the future.
This is a great addition to the series. My only complaint: I wish the cover was different. This was not my imagining of Macrieve, and the publishers do us (the readers) a disservice by forcing their interpretation of the character down our throats. One of the great joys of reading/listening is to have that flexibility of imagination.
Yes! The story isn't my favorite of Kresley Cole's HOWEVER - Robert Petkoff is so amazing at giving each character a distinctive voice that I feel apart of a live-action reading of the book!
Nix - always and forever
when they visit the ubus people
I cried at the beginning! So sad!
LISTEN. TO. THIS. BOOK.! It is well worth the download
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I must say that KC keeps out doing herself. One of the hallmarks of a good author for me is one who can write two very similar stories and yet make each their own. That is what this is. Although the story line is very similar to another of her wolves, this was still its own story and it got me.
I loved it
Robert Petkoff did an awesome job of narrating this latest installment of Kresley Coles Immortals After Dark series.
A few twists and turns that keep me on the edge of my seat!
Looking forward towards the next one...soon please!
I have listen to a few of Kresley Cole's novels in the past and found this one to be the best by far. I almost didn't buy this one just because there were some themes in the previous novels I thought were overdone. This one had a lot more depth and character plot than previous ones and I found myself enjoying it a lot.
The few plot twists. Normally I can predict the future of novels, but when I get a surprise, I really like them.
That's a hard one to answer. I guess the one where the two main characters were out jogging. I am not sure what about that made it really stick to me. Mostly because no one else in the series really seems that athletic and it was nice to see.
Uh... expect the unexpected?
It was a good book. If anyone is looking for a novel to curl up with and listen to while you knit or whatnot this would be it.
The best thing about this book is the ending. The rest of it was boring, repetitively so. The main characters kept going over the same ground over and over again, both in their thoughts and in their dialogue. Another problem is that for the most part, we only had the two main characters. That worked in A Hunger Like No Other, but they were on the move, so the story went somewhere. In Macrieve, the characters were always just in one place, both literally and figuratively. The Lore is a rich and diverse world, filled with extraordinary beings and more of them should have been in this book, because the main characters just weren't enough to hold my interest.
Yes. I don't like all of her books, but I more like them than not.
It wasn't annoying, but I don't like his female voices at all.
Press fast forward.
The set up for the next book seems good. I hope it is.

Every time I think that this is 'just another Kresley Cole book' she writes another brilliant work. And, yes, as you read Ms Cole, you do get the rhythm of her plot lines and know, in a sense, what the basic story will be. The true genius of Ms. Cole is--so what...the basic predictability just serves as a platform for her to pull you in with new characters, new twists to that basic plot (as MacRieve superbly does) and more revelations about the characters we have come to know and love, such as Regin the Radiant, Lothaire, and my personal favorite Nucking Futs Nix. In addition, we have all the creatures of the Lore and there must be hundreds, each with a description that is so clear, they become alive to the reader. And finally, the humor is electric and hilarious. Ms Cole can deliver some of the most fabulous one-liners EVER as well as some very humorous interactions between characters. The sensuality is always steamy and delicious.
When you add all that to such magnificent narration at the hands/voice of the talented and mufti-accented Mr. Robert Petkoff, you have an enjoyable, delightful, fun and funny time listening to these books.
In MacRieve, the plot/story twist is almost unbearable as Chloe and MacReive struggle with the destiny that they share...destinies as different as they are. I cannot recommend this audio with enough stars. If you love the paranormal, if you love a fabulous love story, if you love some laugh-out-loud dialogue and characters...don't miss this one.
