One story yes, In Darkness, By Dianne Duvall
I was not familiar with three of the Author's in this book, I felt a bit lost in them at times not having read the other books in their series.so from what I could tell the stories were well written and for the most part I enjoyed their stories. However, "Still Darkness" by Dianne Duvall The story of the immortal Richart d'Alençon was excellent and very much up to the usual Immortal Guardian books that Ms Duvall writes. I was worried that being a short story and not a full book that Richart might be cheated out of what he could be in a full story. I think those worries were not seen. Richart's short story was full from the beginning to the end and she did a wonderful job in letting us see the completely great love story of Richart and Jenna and I applaud her for that.
If I have any complaint it is with the narrator Arika Rapson. I wanted to like her reading however, I couldn't help but dislike how absolutely horrible Arika Rapson was at accents, which kept pulling me out of the story! I think someone who was able to actually do a good accent to read the stories.would have been so much better!
In Darkness by Dianne Duvall
Anything that has to do with accents! She definitely needs to have some sort of training in that area!
No way could you make a story on the entire book you would have to pick one of the stories.
When listening the characters seemed to jump off the page and come to life!
The voices matched how I thought the characters would sound! I had read the book prior to listening to this book! Once I re-read/listened it brought the characters more alive!
Absolutely!! Well written and so emotionally charged it grabs you from the very first page to the last!!
When Ethan realized he loved Beau, then when he finally spoke to his family telling them he was gay!
It helps bring Ethan and Beau to life more than the author already does!
Beau because he never, ever gave up on Ethan!
I loved the way she interweaved all of the Walker brothers I have come to love into this story about Braydon and his twin!
When Braydon realized HE was the reason for Brendon's being unable to deal with how they were growing apart and how he needed to try to fix things!
Okay now HERE is where this book fell short of ALL of the other Books in this series! I happen to love listening when I'm driving in my car or doing other things, then reading when I can just sit and read! However, the person who was narrating for Brendon was just BAD. So bad in fact, that every time he would start reading it would take me completely out of the story, which was a first for one of Nicole Edwards books. The female narrating for Jessie and the male narrating for Braydon were fantastic, I'd like to state that fact!! It got so annoying when the narrator read for Brendon I finally STOPPED listening and read the rest of the book to completion, after about half way through, because I didn't want to be pulled out of the story any more!
Too many to count! LOL I would recommend this book and all of the books in this series! If you haven't read any of the books from this series, do yourself a favor and read them all!!
Good But Disappointing
Yes, I would try another book. The series is good but the last few books have not been as good as the beginning books in this series. The Warden seems to be lacking something in this book, in that it seems she gave in to popular demand of putting the two leading characters together. While I completely believe that Blay is in love with Qhuinn at no point do I believe that Qhuinn has the same undying love for Blay. A fling, a phase, perhaps a deep friendship that he is confused about but never the love The Warden writes about. The new characters she brings in on this book are interesting and I can see where it will lead to some interesting situations.
Wrath and Vishous
Read the first books so you won't dislike the series
Yes I would recommend this book, it brings you back to Roarke's past! I love Roarke and truth be told he is the reason I keep buying the next book in the series. He is every woman's dream man and in this book we get to learn about his past and what he did there that has had us guessing up to this point. Eve's and Sommerset's relationship is severely challenged but in the end we see they come to an understanding and an admiration of sorts with each other.
She is great to listen too. She does the different accents wonderfully, she flows from one voice to the other never making it choppy or taking you out of the story with a bad interpretation of the accent or the character. She has become my favorite narrator and I have bought books I might not have otherwise purchased simply because I saw she was doing the narrating and I know she will make the book interesting.
The love between Eve and Roarke is believable not to mention enviable. I like to wait for their intimate moments, it is not just the intimate moments just to have them in the story, they always make them so you learn another depth of their relationship.Peobody her assistant, is funny. I can't tell you how many times I have been listening when out of the blue she will have a witty come back to Eve and I laugh out loud.
I hope J.D. Robb, AKA Nora Roberts keeps up this series for years to come!
Let me start by saying this book was good. Another one of Nora Roberts well written imaginative books. However, the narrator was so lack luster and unemotional I struggled with it. His voices for the different characters didn't change much from one character to another and it had me going to other books then coming back to it trying to struggle through to the end. If you like Nora Roberts, as I do, you may be able to listen with more patience.
One of the reasons I enjoy Audio books is because I can get lost in the story by the narrator as they pull you in and make you believe the characters are real, this one did not do that for me.
Someone who feels the story as they read it like most of the other narrators I have listened to have done.
It might have been if I wasn't so distracted by the narrator.
A good narrator can make a not so good book interesting. However, in the same token a bad narrator can ruin a good book.
Following along with the Brotherhood is Mesmerizing & Attention Grabbing from the very first page. I would highly recommend starting at the very beginning of this addicting series so you can become enveloped in each Brothers story then getting to know them & getting lost in their world of adventure & magic!! My favorite Brother, Vishous, but they are all equally as mesmerizing in their own unique way!!
