Kelley Armstrong is a wonderful writer. I've been reading her books for years. I think this is the last installment of "The Otherwolrd" series. She wraps things up nicely here. Using Johanna Parker as a narrator threw me a little bit for the last couple books because I was used to her "sookie" voices. However, she does a great job here.
I won't spoil anything here, but let it be known you are in for a wild ride right from the beginning. This book picks up exactly where the last one left off.
I've read & listened to most of LD's stuff, this is a nice series and the first book is the best. I personally think she would have been better off to write 1 or 2 longer books with more secondary characters and story line.
In this book we meet all the primary characters for the series. Maggie is a high school history teacher with self esteem issues. She starts dating one brother who is an ass to her, but it's Kyle who wins her heart through his caring & gentle nature.
This series is set in the south and I have a weakness for romances set in the south. The narrator does a great job in this book and the next with the male voices. Not so much in books 3 & 4.
Don't waste a credit. Buy the kindle edition with whisper sync & then u get the audio book super cheap. I recommend u do that with the entire series. Overall an entertaining listen.
This was an excellent wrap up to this series. Banks wrote a much more believable story this time around, I'm not saying that a rich man can't fall in love with a homeless person, as happened in the previous book, but not likely.
Ash and Josie make a very believable couple. We get to see the vulnerable side to Ash and see more of his true colors, such as his helping a sister that had shunned him previously.
Mia's girls night out gives it's usual humour.
Adam Paul did another fabulous job on the narration.
I am giving this review with the next couple books in mind. This story in and of it's self is a good story. It's not spectacular, but it's the basis for the next books. What I liked about this book was, it is "all about the story" there is plenty of substance and you have to pay attention. You can't space off and still know where you are in this romance. There is very little sex and it isn't graphic so you can make your own moral judgements there. It's still for adults.
I really wish Jim Frangione had been the narrator. His "Vicious" really would have been the voice for this story. That's all I can add to any of the reviews that are already out there.
In this installment Sydney and Adrian work through their issues. Sydney is forced to face her desire to use magic and seriously begins to investigate what is really going on with the Alchemists. She meets Mark, a man who has escaped the Alchemists and has broken his tattoo. Jill & the others are doing their thing in the background also.
Robert Crais is an excellent writer. I've listened to his other books and have always enjoyed them. This is a stand alone novel. I am the mother of a Marine and one if the first characters you meet in this book is Maggie. She's a german shepard and a Marine. She and her handler are responsible for sniffing out IED's and apprehending suspects. They got my attention right away. Maggie is an excellent Marine and knows that you never leave anybody behind or desert your partner. You will also meet a police officer who is trying to recover from being shot and the loss of his partner. The two pair up and face their demons (PTSD) together. I loved this book. I recommend it to anyone 16 and older.
I just happened by the second book in this series and found it interesting. I went back and found this one and downloaded it just for fun. I was very happy with the story and the narration. If you are a Sookie Stackhouse Fan you will either love the narration or find it a little weird. Parker is a great narrator.
