After reading the first book in this series, I immediately downloaded the second book. It's as good as the first book. The fort is coming along nicely, but now we find outlaws in the Dead Lands, as well as the Zombies. The action is pretty non-stop.
My only complaint is that I didn't really need Jack's point of view at the end. I'm not sure why that was even in the book. But still, I rated it 5 stars.
Now I'm waiting on book number 3. After hearing the epilogue, I know it's coming!
While I'm sure the printed version is excellent, the narration of Holter Graham adds to the story. His voices are fantastic and really bring the story to life. He does the female voices so well that I never notice that a male is voicing the parts.
This book is just a continuation of Infinity, Invincible, and Infamous. Each was better than the previous and Inferno is the best of the four. Nick is maturing but he still has problems with his powers. Being a teenager is difficult enough without the added pressure that he might one day destroy the world.
Holter Graham's performances are always flawless. He has narrated many Kenyon books and they are all wonderful.
Like many other listeners/readers, I think the epilogue is a little strange and frustrating. I'm looking forward to seeing how Sherrilyn Kenyon resolves this.
This is a YA book, but I have never felt that Kenyon writes down for her young adult audiences. This book series shows that it isn't necessary to have sex scenes to be an entertaining book. I do think this book should be read after the other three CON books. I believe it would be pretty confusing to jump into this book without first reading the other three.
Molly Harper has done it again! This 4th book in the "Nice Girls" series is just as good as the other three. I was entertained and laughed many times (as I always do with MH books).
I have to admit, I panicked near the end because I thought the series was ending because of some things that happened, but then Molly threw us a curve ball and now there is subject matter for several more books. Whew! That's a relief.
Amanda Ronconi was awesome as the narrator, as always.
I had started and stopped several audio books before NGDBTN because I was bored but I listened to this one every chance I could and was disappointed when it was over. I am ready for #5.
Liked the book but I was a little put off by the preaching of vegetarianism, recycling, etc. It's not that I disagree with the concept, but I don't particularly care for it in my fantasy books. I also found it a little unbelievable that an Immortal would own a Prius. Hot men drive a Jag, Hummer, Mercedes, etc., but not a Prius!
Otherwise, I thought this book, and the first in the series were very good and I plan to buy the third when it is released.
Those of us who have read or listened to The Breed series have been waiting for Sterling Chase's "happily ever after" for quite awhile. However, this listener thought that this was the conclusion to an awesome series and I didn't want that. But not to worry. Even though this book tied up the loose ends nicely and brought us to a conclusion of sorts, a glance at the author's website shows books #11 and #12 to come so the world is not yet safe. (hooray for that!)
Chase is one of the good guys. He has always had a sense of honor even though he has been through some pretty horrible events. So he was due for some good stuff to happen and in this book, Chase found his perfect mate in Tavia. Tavia is a strong, likable character that is a great heroine, and she goes well with the tortured Chase.
Once again Hillary Huber is the narrator and she does an excellent job with the voices and accents. It is always nice when a great narrator reads the entire series.
Lara Adrian has not been repetitive in the course of 10 books. She came up with a fresh plot for every book. What an imagination she has!
I highly recommend this book, and the entire series. Not only did this series interest me enough to purchase every audio book, it has interested me enough to listen to every audio book again and again.
Buy the book, buy the series. You won't be disappointed. It's 5 stars all the way.
I took a chance on this book because it was inexpensive and was pleasantly surprised.
Alec and Dani have been together in several previous lives, and all had tragic endings. Their present relationship seems to be headed in that direction (but, we all know it's a romance so the ending is happier this time).
I was sure I had the "bad guy" figured out early on, and then discovered I was totally wrong, so there were some surprises.
Overall, it was an enjoyable listen and I had no problems with the narrator.
This book is a little different, with Norse mythology and mythological creatures, healers, witches, shape shifters, and fire demons. I like both the characters of Grace and Aiden.
When I started this audio book, I thought it got off to a good start and the narrator was okay. After a half hour, the book was still good but the narration just got worse. It was more like a boring reading. The. Book. Was. Read. Like.This. It was definitely one of the poorest performances I've heard.
Demon Crossings lost quite a bit of steam in the middle and the narrator made listening painful so I almost quit listening, but I hung in there. I was glad I did. The book picked up at the end and maybe I got used to the narration because it didn't seem so bad, or maybe my ears were numb by this time.
But I did think the story was good. With someone else performing, the overall rating would have been at least 4 stars. Check the sample clip first. You might want to skip the audio book and read the book instead.
I listened to this book on a 950 mile trip and it kept me entertained for 800 miles, until the book finished. I can't say that this was a light-hearted, Happily-Ever-After book because it was more of a real-life story. It addressed some tough subjects, but I thought it was enjoyable, even with my tears.
One More Summer never lost my attention and I never became bored with the characters. Grace was definitely damaged but Ms Flaherty wrote her as a fragile but tough and caring woman. The secondary characters were likable people with very human flaws.
The narrator did a good job and that is always a plus.
I do recommend this book but be sure to have your hankie out and be ready to cry.
I started this book twice. The narrator is a bad choice. Luckily, this was a $2.95 book or I would have felt like I wasted my money. The book was only fair. Considering that the male lead only spoke about 100 words the entire book, it just wasn't that interesting. Then add a narrator that sounds as if she is reading a book word for word, and it was a chore to finish.
Listen to a sample first to see if you can stand the narrator, and if you can, then it might be an okay book for the money.
I have read several of the books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, including the Chicago Stars series, and I have not once been disappointed with her books.They are light reading and a nice escape from every day life. First Lady was a great listen with some enjoyable twists and turns. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
I believe that Anna Fields was one of the best narrators in the business and the audio book community lost a great performer with her death.
Five stars all the way for this audio book.
I have not purchased the other Breed books by L Leigh and I doubt I will buy more. I purchased this audio book because it was a shorter book with a good price for when I wanted a quick read. But I have to say that I was pretty disappointed with the language. Yes, I know that most of the times this type of book borders on erotica but after hearing the P-word and C-word to describe the female anatomy over and over, I got really sick of it. I don't mind sex scenes if tastefully done, but these were just crude. Heck, I'm not a prude. In fact, I was reading Rosemary Rogers books at 14 yrs old. But over the years I have discovered that less is really better when it comes to descriptive sex scenes.
I thought the plot was a good one and enjoyed the beginning but the book would be much better if about an hour of sex was cut out.
I recommend lots of books and audio books to others, but this will not be one of them.
