It fits nicely into the series with a futuristic twist on a classic fairy tale.
After 30+ books, Susan Erickson has all the characters refined to the point of recognition by voice alone.
Teleoathic twins kidnapped by mother's evil twin sister. Dallas along with Roarke and her team do what they do best and rescue the kids. This novella by Robb is on par with her other fine works. Eve always entertains.
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
I own and love the entire In Death series, listen to them over and over again. Taken in Death, feels too contrived and almost like Robb, just wanted to give us a novella, any novella. I did not enjoy it at all. Tried to re-listen but couldn't.
Listening to Stied Larsson's Millenium Trilogy. If J. D. Robb published more often, I'd listen to them.
The BEST NARRATOR OF ALL. I can use my imagination even more, for a more complete story experience.
I wouldn't have published it. I love Eve, Roarke, Gallahad and the whole gang but was extremely dissapointed with Taken.
Can't wait for next In Death!
I have always loved the JD Robb series until a year ago. I feel that Nora is recycling plotlines and rushing out books that just are not her best work. I no longer run to Wal-mart the morning her books come out or put onto my audible wish list. If you have a credit, use it, donn't pay for this. You should buy something else.
Eve was my favorite character Susan Erickson's performance of Eve was least objectionable.
Terrible! Reading was ok, but the voices she used for the characters were awful. Rourke is supposed to have a hint of Ireland in his voice, Peabody is from the Midwest and softspoken not native New Yorker, and the Fed's sounded like they were from Ireland also. Mira sounded harsh and McNabb just sounded stupid. Would have been better if she had done a straight reading. It was hard to enjoy the story with those voices.
Yes. I would like to hear more about the kids and we didn't get Eve's signature interrogation. No Nadine, no humor, not one of J D Robb's best efforts but still an excellent story.
If Susan Erickson is going to narrate more of these books please have J D Robb give her more insight on the characters or have someone else do the voices, especially Roark and Peabody.
the story was interesting I like the that there were no long drawn out love scene but that there was a good deal of action
Not up to the usual standard like the other In Death series. Characters seemed shallower than normal. I am a big fan of this series but this book just fell short.
Oh don't make me pick, I love them all.
She is one of the best readers ever. She is so good with all the characters.
I am surprised that readers complained about the story, it is a "short" story and it goes quick, but I like them and having stepped through this series one by one I never miss the short stories. I like that the author gives us something between the full novels. I really love this series.
Susan Erikson gives another spectacular performance as Eve Dallas and the gang. J.D. Robb manages to pack all of the excitement, intrigue and mystery of a full length novel into this "short" story. A must read for fans.
