Great story and great narration. I finished this book late at night and I was so hyped up I couldn't fall asleep. I wanted more. I have really enjoyed all the books in this series but I found this story more suspenseful. I loved it.
It is hard to compare this book to another I have read because of the main character's duel nature. The Alfa Omega series by Patricia Briggs, also a great series, has a bit of this with Charles and Brother Wolf. Charles is also influenced by his Native American heritage. While they are very different in many ways, if you like Mercy Thompson and/or Alfa Omega by Patricia Briggs I bet you will like Jane Yellowrock too, but I suggest starting with book one.
I think Ms. Hvam does a great job bringing Beast to life. I just don't think I would ever have fully understood the Jane/Beast relationship without her masterful narration.
There is always a chuckle or two in a Jane Yellowrock book but this one put a lump in my throat more that once. That surprised me.
I just hope Faith Hunter will write #6 fast, fast, fast!
I read the first book in this series a while ago and enjoyed it. Hellbent is a good listen also.
It has a lot of action and humor. There was a hint of romance in the first book and I was hoping the author would give us a little more in this one. Alas, just more hints, but I still think the book is very credit worthy.
This book is so similar to the first book in the series that I feel the author should be ashamed. The bedroom dialog is almost identical. I did not even finish the book, there seemed no point. I know it got a lot of good reviews but if you are looking for an interesting story don't buy this book. The author seems to have a formula and she is sticking to it.
I can't give this book a fair review because the narrator just set my teeth on edge. I found his female characters especially awful. I just couldn't get into the story. It may just be me, but I suggest listening to the sample before you buy.
I love Patricia Briggs. I have to admit, I listen to her books over and over again. she manages to keep her characters and plots fresh and interesting. Night Broken is no exception, I really enjoyed it.
There was a lot to like about this book. I found the world interesting and original and even though this is a long book it didn't drag. I think the author could have spent a bit more time and effort explaining how and why Meg was so quickly and completely accepted by the others. also, while the narration was competent a stronger voice would have made it better for me.
I love this series. I do not enjoy books that are basically bodice rippers with a vampire or wolf in place of the pirate or viscount. Jane Yellowrock's world has grit, humor and depth. This series has held my attention from book 1. Even if you don't normally read fantasy or paranormal books, if you like action and adventure with a little steam from time to time I bet you will like this series. Only one negative, the long wait for book 8 has just begun for me.
This book was a disappointment for me. It got some good reviews so I took a chance. The author seems to have some talent but I found this tedious. A vampire who calls his reluctant lover Ma Petite, now why does that sound familiar? The thing that I just could not take was Lily's endless drivel about her two love interests. I get it, they are both gorgeous, they both kiss well and she can't make up her mind between them. This constant prattle takes up most of the book. I found the outlines of the characters interesting but they were never developed. When Lily does make up her mind, no real reason is given. No grit and no real humor. My advise, save your credit and wait for the next Faith Hunter or Molly Harper book.
What a great summer read. I love a book that takes me away to an exotic location and another time. What makes this book great is how well it is written. It is romantic and suspenseful without being cheesy. This book is well narrated. The voice fits the book. Audible has several other M.M. Kaye novels available but sadly the narration choices are poor on several of them. It's a real disappointment. The wrong choice of narrator really ruins a book for me. So if you enjoy this book and want to try another in the "death" series, I recommend listening to the sample first.
repetitious, funny and ok
I Love Molly Harper. I have most of her books. This is the first one that left me a bit underwhelmed. It is not a bad book. I enjoyed it, but it seems too similar in plot to her last werewolf book to me. So this would not be the first book on my recommendation list, and I do highly recommend Molly Harper to my friends.
Amanda Ronconi is the best. I always enjoy her performance.
Of course I laughed, Molly Harper is funny!
These books are always worth a replay. I love the way the author brings historical figures to life. Caesar is very cunning and a jerk and Pompey lets other gererals fight the big battles then jumps in at the end to take all the credit. It's fun to see these giants of history in a very human way. I also love the main character and the humor woven through the story. I always seem to find something new when I replay a SPQR novel.
Almost anything by Bernard Cornwell will have a good historial plot and great action.
Yes. I like John Lee but...I really did miss Simon Vance.
Why does audible always ask this question?
Please Audible can we have more of this series. The sooner the better.
