Not my favorite series in the world, but one I'll listen to in between other books. Usually there books are more of a light paranormal love stories with a bit of action, sex and "mating", with the envitable impossible love connection in the end. This one, well I have no problem with erotica, if that's what I'm wanting or expecting to listen to. But this book they took the sex scenes to a whole other level. It just went on and on and on and on and on. Instead of the book having a story with a few love scenes, this book had a huge sex scene with little doses of story. Ha ha! Even worse having one of my most adored narrators reading it. I just laughed. It was ridiculous.
Isn't the best of course, I've listened to A LOT of audiobooks. But it's one of my favorites. I have listened to the books of this series again just for the entertainment, and will listen to this book as well. It's a good story with some of the best "one liners" I've ever heard. Seriously, I still laugh when I think of some of the things Darynda Jones writes.
Too many, In the beginning when Cookie and Charley are going though her home shopping channel purchases. Or when Charleys sister can't find her pants and wears a pair of Charleys only to find out later she was walking around in public with "EXIT ONLY" written across her bum. I can go on and on.
Charley.... And Cookie. The conversations between the two characters narrated by King has me laughing like a nut!
I don't know, Maybe "Just because you're the grim reaper you don't have to be grim" That's cheesey, I know.
The story written is both interesting and full of twists and turns, action and drama. I like to think I'd like it in written form but Loreli King really is one of the reasons I adore these books so much. But like I mentioned earlier I have listened to each of the books in this series a couple times because they are so entertaining. I have gotten some really weird looks from people who see me laughing my butt off at apparently nothing that they can see or hear.
I Love Rachel Morgan! Kim Harrison+ Marguerite Gavin = A perfect Rachel Morgan! Everyone of these books are so much fun to listen to (With the exception of "The Outlaw Demon Wails', which unfortunately had a different narrator. But was still an excellent story). Marguerite Gavin is one of my favorite narrators. She takes books to a different level. For me, the story teller can either ruin a good book, or can make "a not so good" book better. But when you have a great Author paired up with a fantastic Narrator, it makes the audio book experience superb! Pale Demon, is the most epic book in the Rachel Morgan series yet. Opening the doors for a different kind of adventure in the next book. As always, Kim Harrison writes one helluva story.
Ok, to clarify I did like the book. How could I not? Its a Sookie Stackhouse book. Anything new about her life is a great thing. But It didn't have the usual fun twists as her other books. It was like she was in a depression the whole time There was no really "make you laugh" moments in this book. It's started with her in a funk, and ended even funkier. Plus although it opened new story lines, bringing new questions to light, there was no answers, no closure, only leaving you wonder, what happened. On the bright side I guess it could make a great intro to her next book. It's a "must read" being it's part of the series, just not a great part. As a devout Sookie Stackhouse lover, I'm going to hang in there and hope the next book gets better. They all can't be 5 stars I guess...... Right?
