I have read every book in the Cynster legacy, and this book is another good one, especially for those who have read the prior books. Mary Cynster is the last unwed woman of her generation in the family. She is small, but totally bossy, head-strong and determined to remain in control of her live. Ryder Cavanaugh is the large, extremely handsome, head-strong Marquess of Raventhorne. Ryder decided that Mary was perfect to be his wife, but he had to work to convenience her. Mary was fascinated with his handsome face, but she was worried that she could not control him. Their courtship was filled with a battle of wills.
Someone tried to kill both Ryder and Mary. This part of story line was very predictible, but it served the purpose of brining Mary and Ryder' closer together, and it also brough them closer to Ryder's step-sibilings, which I have no doubt will be spin-off books in the future.
I am not crazy about the narrator Matthew Brenher. His famale voices are very annoying. I just turned the speed to 1.25x and it made it less painful.
I'm looking forward to another Cynster book!
Only pick this book if you have listened to the entire Dragos series, because it won't have as much meaning otherwise. It really is an "add on" to the prior series.
I loved this short story - it was fast paced and entertaining. If you like this series, you will not be disappointed! I love seeing Liam, Dragos' son, grow and develop talents. This book leaves you hungry for the next story. I can't wait to read more about Dragos, Pia and Liam!
Kresley Cole is one of the best writers in the business, and this book totally showcases her incredible talent. This is the second book in the series (Poison Princess was the first), and it was an amazing sequel. I thought book 1 was excellent, but book 2 blew me away! This book is a fast-paced and thrilling adventure, with twists and turns in the plot that were totally unpredictable. I could not stop listening. This book is pure genius.
We meet new Arcana in this adventure, and the players start making alliances. The character development is amazing. The story is a bit dark, but so fascinating and exciting. The passion and tension between Evie and Jack, and then Evie and Death…. WOW. We discover the history of Evie and Death…. that is all I can say without spoiling it. I can’t say enough good things about this book, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series! The ending leaves you begging for more!
Emma Galvin is an excellent narrator!
I caution parents of “young adults” as I really don’t think this book is appropriate for those under age 16 due to some steamy sex scenes. This book was less explicit than Kresley Cole’s IAD series, but still smoking hot.
Book 5 is a follow-up to Dragos' and Pia's story from Book 1. To get the full benefit of the story, you should first read the other 4 books in the series. This series is excellent, and I'll buy anything Thea Harrison writes! The same narrator, Sophie Eastlake, read all 5 books in the series, and she is excellent. All 5 books in this series rock - all are interesting, unique and HOT!
Dragos, a dragon, is one of the best male leads I've seen in years! He is hot, a total bad-ass and not afraid to show, and tell, Pia how he feels about her. I love how Thea brings the baby (Liam) into the mix - his story will come someday, and I can't wait! In this story, Thea introduces two new Wyr sentinals, one of which is Pia's friend Quentin from Book 1, who will mate in Book 6 with Aryal, a Harpy sentinal. This book was great because it closed the loop on some open issues in prior books, and it set the framework for future books. Thea Harrison is now one of my favorite authors!
This is book 4 in the series and it is great, but you should read the first 3 books in the series before you read this one. The story was so much better knowing the background of the characters. Thea Harrison does a great job linking her stories and the characters, so I'm hooked on this series! Thea also makes each male lead character in the series hot, interesting and unique. You will never feel bored or that the story line is "cookie cutter."
In this book, Khalil, a Demonkind Gin, and Grace, the Oracle, are both really good, kind, strong and interesting characters. The passion was hot! The book has some twists, and the ending is not what I expected (which was great). Thea leaves the story a bit open-ended, so we will see these characters again in another story. I can't wait to read the next book!
The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, is awesome!
Thea Harrison delivers again in book 3 of the Series! The story of Rune and Carling is interesting and engaging, and the author really develops the characters and the plot. Rune is totally hot, playful, and strong Griffin Wyr - he is one of the best male leads from Thea Harrison. Carling is a vampire queen who is complex and strong. The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, is awesome - she really brings the characters to life. I like the fact that all of Thea's books in this series are connected, so Rune and Carling's story will be continued in another book. I can't wait to read the next one!
The story in this book was just average and a bit boring at times. Boune lost his family estate in a poker game, and he blamed everyone but himsel for acting a fool. Years later, Penelope's father won the estate from the man who took it from Bourne, and he made the estate part of Penelope's dowery to encourage a man to marry her (she was older and turning into a "spinster"). Bourne marries Penelope to get the estate back through marriage. Bourne and Penelope were childhood friends, but you would never know it, because Bourne was such a jerk to Penelope. While the story had passion, both Bourne and Penelope had unrealistic expectations and acted a bit immature. Unless you love this author, I'd pass. On the positive side, the narrator was great.
This is book 2 in the series, but you don't really need to read book 1 first to enjoy this one. Tiago Black Eagle ("Thunderbird") has ruled the skys with lightening and thunder for centuries. He is big, strong and scares most people on sight. "Tricks" is the Heir to the Dark Fea thrown. Tricks is very pixie, sweet, upbreat and kind person who needs protection. Someone is trying to kill Tricks, so Tiago travels with her back to her homeland to protect her. There is lots of suspense - I did not figure out who the bad guy was until the end. This book had it all - hot sex, suspense, romance and strong characters that you really liked. I can't wait to read book #3!
First off, I am a huge Gena Showalter LOTU fan. This book was really lacking the same fire, passion, interest and strenght of characters that her prior books had in abundance. Gena's new writing style is really hit or miss, and this was a big miss. Most of the story was boring, and it was very hard to get into Kane and Josephina as main characters. There was no chemistry or passion - it just seemed off. Also, Kane's nick names for Josphina were very annoying - "tinkerbell" or "tink" - it just seemed to grind on my nerves. On the positive side, Gena did set the stage for a couple of other books to come that might be interesting! I just hope they are the "old" Gena style!
Thea Harrison is a new author for me, and I totally loved her style and characters. I was so pleased with book #1 that I purchased all 5 in the series! Dragos, the hero, is one of the most powerful men in Wyrkind. He is a great character with humor, strength, power and beauty and he is not affraid to show his love and affection for his mate Pia (who is a half blood...? I don't want to spoil it!). I found the dialogue between Dragos and Pia to be witty and fun. I was totally hooked on their story. This book has it all - a good story, hot sex, adventure and lots of super natural characters that will be the stars of subsequent books. The narrator is excellent. I can't wait to ready Book 2!
Kresley Cole delivers again! I had this book on my pre-order list for a while, and I was not disappointed. I was completely hooked on the characters and the book, and I could not stop listening!
Ullieam (or Will), the hero, is a super hot Lykae warrior who has a tragic and heartbreaking history full of pain (emotionally and physically). You really feel for him and his family. Will has a super hot identical twin brother - I can't wait to hear his story! Despite Will's horrible past, he is still strong, hot, caring, charming - delicious!
Chole, the heronie, is a really cool, kick-ass, strong little soccer player who is half Succubus, but does not know of her immortal blood. She discovers that her father is one of the most evil men in the Lore. Will hates her father, and he planned to use Chole to get revenge, but Will discovers that Chole is his mate. There relationship seemed doomed, but they really developed a bond and worked to get over their past.
The sex in this book is steaming hot, so be prepared!
Robert Petkoff, the narrator, is awesome!!!!! He really brings the characters to life and his accents are amazing!
This is one of the best books I've listened to in while!
