I couldn't wait to find another mystery by Alex Grecian, but then found out this was his first. The narrator is one of the best I have heard to date. I loved a period point of view of early forensics and police work, even down to the realization that officers should only travel in pairs. The only reason I didn't give five stars is due to some of the side stories that I could have done without.
I cannot believe how many good reviews I have read about this series. There was no story line or plot. You think things are going in one direction and that just ends abruptly and then (spoiler alert) two people you have briefly been introduced to are apparently at the forefront of the climax with no reason as to why except.....devil worshipping? More time was devoted to failed attempts at humor and describing scenes or other inanimate objects that had nothing to do with whatever plot there may have been. This book did save me money, because I would normally burn through about three books a month and it took me a month of stopping this over and over again to even get through it.
I started the series in order, but skipped the second book due to the plot summary and a couple of reviews. Winter Prey is my absolute favorite so far. This book is the worst I have read in the series up to this point. I did not find any of the new characters interesting. The killer is not particularly intelligent and does not take Lucas on the typical mind game ride. If future books are similar, I will have to stop the series or skip through it.
I started this series in order, but skipped Book Two (Shadow Prey I think?) because of some reviews and the plot summary. This is my favorite of the series so far. However, if I could do it again, I would skip the next book, Night Prey. This book is the first time you aren't introduced to the identity of the killer up front. Even though I figured it out pretty early on, I wasn't positive, and it was great to have it confirmed toward the end. I really hope he goes back to the format of not identifying the killer in future books.
The last half was hard to stop listening to. I didn't particularly like the ending, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
It was just mediocre. I didn't have a problem with the accent of Bones. I think it was read as the character was written.
This book kept me interested and on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed all of the characters, and the narration.
It was jut an average book with an average story. Nothing more, nothing less. I have no idea why this book was such a sensation other than maybe for tweens.
I have a very dry and sarcastic sense of humor, which I think is what the author was trying to portray in the main character, but I was annoyed by her. I also didn't think it was funny.
I've probably gone through 40 to 50 audiobooks in the past five years and this is my favorite out of all genres. I was so disappointed when this book ended, and came here to download the second one before realizing it isn't out yet. What an amazing thrill ride. Loved it!
The narrator should be reading bedtime stories or hypnosis books. He uses such a soothing voice that I was afraid to listen sometimes while driving. The narrator did do a good job on the female's voice from Martinique. If I hadn't used a credit on this book, I would not have finished it. The author is too descriptive about technical workings and inanimate objects and does not place enough emphasis on developing the characters or the story. It's highly predictable, but I don't mind predictable. It was just dull. I have probably gone through 40 books in the past year, and this is in the bottom two.
