The depth of pain the leads have to overcome makes for a conflicted yet tender storyline.
Zsadist is my favorite brother...definately the character that has the most growth in the series and the most depth.
It was unremarkable, bland even. The Brothers do not have individual voices, even Butch who has a Boston accent, was read in the same tone as Wrath (also suppose to have an accent.) There is such a richness in dialogue, snappy sarcasm and smart ass one-liners, contrasted with sincere, heartfelt depth that the practically monotone reading was just horrible. If you can READ this book, don't listen to it. The AUDIO is a WASTE of an incredible story. I would avoid all books read by this performer, at all costs.
A better narrator would have sent this over the top. And less time spent with the Lessers, I always just skipped over those parts as I read. They really did not add much depth or more conflict to the story.
I recommend listening to this in private...because you will laugh and snort out loud! Well performed by Amanda Ronconi, truly meshed with the voice of Miranda Puckett. The sincerity of Miranda 'Jinx' Puckett's tenacity in face of incredible missteps and mishaps juxtaposed nicely with the OCD to the extreme Vampire.
I loved the snappy voice of Miranda, her earthiness at the heart of her chaotic life, and how that heart melts the icey, anal-retentiveness of Colin, a true descendant of Mr. Darcy himself...eventually charmed by his less than perfect companion. Love the down to earth humor Molly Harper's characters all have. She truly gets the inner workings of "interesting" women everywhere.
I adored how Miranda summarized the whole disastrous trip to one of our favorite rogue vamps.
Laughed so hard I snorted...which is why I was listening to this at home.
I want this story developed into a full novel, more adventures with Miranda and Colin, it ended too quickly!
