a less predictable/cliché story (romance), and a less headstrong heroine
yes and no. I like paranormal, but this series is yet another example of the many many stories that build an interesting world with good characters and then fill it with a mediocre and predictable romance.
Have listened to several of her performances, and she only has one male voice, which she uses for all males in every book. So too bad it isn't a very good male voice, to me it sounds like a 40-50 year old man wearing a suit, which is a problem when the hero is 18 and still in high school. Otherwise her narration is pleasant to listen to.
I think the romance was very entertaining for most parts, but the narrator was so bad that I couldn't finish listening! So will have to do without the ending unless by some chance that it will be recorded with a more skilled narrator. The narrator was very droll, slow, pronounced every word as if she was dictating. Her male male voices were very nasal, and made every male sound the same and as an old snobbish aunt!!
Normally I have nothing against sex scenes, but this book had - I am sorry to say- too many of them, and even though they to some degree do describe the relationship between the main characters, they began to repeat them self. Yes, the sex in this book is about dominance, and yes she will never beg -got it after the first few sex scenes. No need to repeat that over and over just varying the positions and surroundings!!! And if you take away the sex there is not much story left.
More story! The universe is good, and the characters interesting -or would be if we ever got a chance to know them better, and not just the main characters. And them we only get to know as sexual beings with mating issues.Also, The first part of the book had some nice swearing I really enjoyed, but then later on most of the swearing had subsided, too bad.
She read the book very well, and did justice to all the swearing :)
At first a little interest, but then just disappointment.
Didn't finish the book!
Yes, it was well written, original, well narrated, and had a delicious gloom to it. Worth a credit - or two :)
Four, and maybe Christina.
No, but will if I get the chance.
Yes, the characters and the details were well made up and well written.
The pace. It didn't hurry to get to the fun/action, but didn't feel long either.
a very good fantasy. I never was much into dragons, but this book changed my mind
A much better story, less boring details, keep characters in character.
Most of the book.
Mostly boring, waste of a credit.
