First all, I chose this book based solely off a solid review. I received some credits for Christmas and was debating on what book to listen to. The reader’s review that I read painted this book as something worth giving a shot. I’m extremely happy that I decided to listen.
I have to give Susannah some credit for adding a decent pin on a genre that is being played heavily these days. She made the storyline enthralling with a hint of mystery to keep you guessing and listening until the very end.
I enjoyed the relationship between the vampires and their “fam”. That added a new aspect that I wasn’t exactly prepared for but enjoyed nonetheless. The lead hero, Aiden, can we say mmmmm. The lead heroine, Chris, strong, independent and has a tendency to linger in her head to long. But I think that made for some funny moments. I’m glad to see that the characters aren’t to overly serious and still shared jokes amongst themselves. At times, it caught me off guard and I found myself laughing.
Angela did an excellent job with the voices, which really kept me listening. Sometimes with female narrators, they don't get the depth of the males voices. I have to applaud Angela for the voices she did with Aiden and Mirren. Delicious.
I have already started listening to the second book of this series. I hope it’s as good as the first.
Erion is a half vampire and half demon. If you didn’t know this already, then you shouldn’t be reading this book. His son has been taken by Cruen and Erion will do anything to bring him home safely. Hellen is a demon, who has given her life and body to Cruen to save her sisters. Erion decides to kidnap Hellen in exchange for his son, which begins the story. I enjoyed the different variations that this book offered for the series. It opened the realm for new characters and something different than the previous four offered. However, I’m a little torn by my feeling for this book. I loved the blooming relationship between Erion and Hellen and was extremely happy that the unloved and unwanted finally found loved. But I guess that can be said for all the Roman brothers. (Again, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, read the series from the beginning) But I’m a little puzzled as to the direction the series took with this book. I still greatly enjoyed the book and probably will reread it again.
As always, I loved Tavia Gilbert. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators. She always does a phenomenal job with the voices. I think she could read the encyclopedia and make it sound downright interesting.
I loved the relationship between Dylan and Gray. The progression, their fight to make it works, how it evolves in the end. It's their relationship that made this book my favorite in the series, so far.
The constanst fighting between Dylan and Gray. They agrue like an old married couple.
Since Tavia is my favorite narrator, I enjoyed all the characters she performed, but I have always liked her Lucian character.
I think i did listen to it in one sitting and then re-listen to it again.
When I read the first book of this series, I was thinking to myself that this story is quite unbelievable. I am a huge fan of Maya Banks Highlanders’ series. Which is why I read book one and book two of the Colter Legacy. I still can’t grasp the idea of three men sharing the same woman, without jealousy or bickering and everything just comes together as normal. But then again, we read books (or listen to them) to get lost within a world not of our own. So keeping that in mind, I enjoyed listening to this book. I can do believe that the sex scenes in this book were a lot tender and emotional than the first book. The Colter men in book struggled with their emotions for Lilly more than the men in the first book. I was content with the ending of the book and the personal growth of Lilly by the end. I think she is a much stronger person at the end of the book.
Jeffery does a great job with the voices during this book. He knows when to add the right amount of emotion during the scene to pull you further into the book. I will be reading the next book, Colter’s Daughter.
Once again, Ms. Wright had my laughing so hard at work; I got questioning looks from my co workers. This book is hilarious. Jamie doesn’t have as big of a potty mouth as Taryn but that doesn’t make her any less funny. I like Jamie’s strength and courage and her struggles throughout the book, and Dante, WOW!!! He makes me wish to be wolf-shifter.
I love Jill Redfield as a narrator. She always gives the performance that little extra. Such as when a line says the character laughed, she actually says the line laughing. It’s that little extra that makes her reading very enjoyable.
*****This might be a spoiler, but if you read the first book you should be expecting this. The funniest scene in the book was when Taryn went into labor. I literally cried, I was laughing so hard. Thank you Ms. Wright.
I’m a huge fan of Maya Banks. When I read the first book of this series, I was touched by the affection portrayed between the hero and heroine. I have to admit that I didn’t like Bowen in the first book. I wanted to hit him in the eye. But in this book, I downright feel in love with Bowen Montgomery. The strength and passion that he displayed throughout this book, made me feel in love with his story.
As always, Kristen Potter did a fantastic read and added just the right amount of emotion and depth to the characters. I was captive with this book from page one didn’t remove my headphones until the final word was spoken.
I highly encourage this book, this series. Read and Enjoy.
I started reading this book because of the reviews that I read. Majority of them praised the Suzanne for being a fantastic story teller. I’m extremely happy I decided to plug in my ear buds and listen. The main characters of the story are amazing; Taryn and Trey are both wolf shifters.
Taryn is a sarcastic, no nonsense, latent wolf shifter that doesn’t tolerate anyone’s crap. Being a latent wolf shifter means she is unable to shift into her wolf form, which people tend to mistake as a weakness. It is not. I think this gives her more strength to prove herself as a wolf shifter and an alpha female.
Trey is an alpha male of his own pack. He was label as a psychotic wolf early in life because he has a tendency to become feral when in his wolf form. When Trey is feral the animal nature overrides his humanity and he loses Trey within the wolf. He was exiled from his pack by his own father as a kid and forced to grow up fast, to lead his own pack.
The plot, Taryn is unwillingly forced into an engagement that she didn’t chose nor does she want. Trey is in need of some very strong and powerful allies, which Taryn father has both. They decided to help each other with their individual problems.
The story keeps at an excited pace, that doesn’t let the listener get bored or drift off from the book. There is tons of humor and witty dialogue that kept me laughing to myself throughout the book. The interaction between Taryn and Trey’s grandmother is priceless. There are a lot of romance scenes and graphic language throughout the book that I really enjoyed. Some might think they were too excessive but not me.
I enjoyed listening to Jill narration of the book. I think she did a good job distinguishing the voices of the different characters within the book. I hope she does the narration for book 2, as well.
I have already started reading Book 2 of this series because it is narrated by one of my favorites, Angela Dawe. I enjoy her voice alot more. I loved the storyline in Shadow's Edge and the details that were added to every description. J.T. helped the reader imagine this breathtaking world and envision yourself within each character.
I am already reading Book 2.
Justine reads at a very slow pace. She drags out every word until it is excruiating painful to listen to another word.
Nothing, I think the romance between the hero and the heroine is perfect. It's unbalanced, it's give and take, it's angst, it just perfect.
I have read the other three books in this series and waited on pins and needles for the third book. I was expected a huge showdown between Will and his father. I felt quite disappointed when this didn’t happen. After book 2, I thought the reclaiming of Peyton would be a brilliant battle but it was more talking than action. The romance scene weren’t at steamy as they were in book 1 & 2.
I wasn’t happy how the relationship between Will and Randa developed. More information about Will’s background was revealed, and that was heartbreaking for me to hear but I felt the reader was left with an open mouth expression gasping for more. Please oh please tell me it doesn’t end like this.
I listen to this book and made my co worker listen to this book. All the while, I was thinking, I don’t feel bad because this is exactly what I want to tell my kids when they won’t go to sleep. It really is a laugh out loud, crying, funny story. I laughed so hard, my supervisor came to make sure I was ok. Every parent should listen this book it’s only 6 minutes. Trust me; it’s worth your time.
Dark Lover is the first book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood and this book will have you addicted with the first chapter. I love Alpha Male characters and the Black Dagger Brotherhood, delivers that and than some.
Beth is a half-breed that is unaware of her vampire heritage until she meets Wrath the last purebred vampire. The attraction that is sparked is instant. When I first read this book, I wanted more and J.R. Ward doesn’t let you down. She delivers a very well written book with thrills and steamy romance scenes.
Jim Frangione does an excellent job delivering the story in his rich baritone voice. The story is worth a read; Jim makes it worth a listen.
