It takes a really good book to top the first in a series, and this one isn't it. It is ok, so if you get it on a sale you won't feel as if you wasted your money. But don't pay full price for it. There were a lot of places where the author could have done more with the scene, but didn't. Other scenes were just way too long. As I said, it was ok.
As someone who loves the Kate Daniels series and enjoys Renee Raudman narrating, I had high expectations for this new book. The story was tired and somewhat boring. There were a few good moments, but they were so drawn out, they became predictable.
The Kate Daniels series is great. This book, not so much.
Renee is usually right on target and listening to her is a pleasure. This time I have to wonder if she even tried. The southern accent of the main character was choppy and inconsistent at best.
Think twice if another book in the series comes out.
I enjoyed this book when I read it a few years ago, but wanted to start the series. Narrator is good, the book does drag a times. But for the most part I enjoyed it. I may read the series as I'm not sure if it is really worth my credits. 8hrs seems like a waste of a credit.
I thought this would be a little different from the other books of its genre, but its not. I just couldn't get into it.
While it maybe written more for kids or young adults, it is a great listen without being preachy. Simple life lessons that make sense. Just enjoy the story.
All of our favorite characters from Sigma Force are here in another adventure to save the world. Twists and unexpected turns are the norm and are never predictable! Love this book. But then I love all James Rollins's books.
This book has more twists and turns than the canyons the characters have to travel through. A terrific adventure through our beautiful Southwest. Preston and Child are great together!! Enjoy!!
This book was surprisingly different from everyother fantasy book I've listened too. The characters are fresh and bold. The narrator gets all the voices right. It doesn't take long to get absorbed into the story. Well worth the credit.
I truely loved the Mortal Instruments so much, that I have listened to all three books twice! But this book, is so incredibly slow and melodramatic that it is a chore just to listen to it. The narrator isn't not the best I've ever listened to. She gets her accents mixed up when switching from character to character. The only good part of the book is Magnus Bane. I loved the character in the other books and he is the only thing saving this one. Cassandra Clare is trying too hard with this story. She is trying to turn these new people into the same ones in the past books and it just doesn't work. The whole story just stinks.
Preston & Child are so good together that each book is an adventure onto itself. The twist, turns and suprises are never predictible and always exciting. This book is a wonderful way to loose yourself for hours! Enjoy.
I read this book a few years ago and loved it. To find it finally on audio, well I just had to listen. It was as good the second time as it was the first! Preston and Child are good separately but are fantastic together. I'm going to have to listen to all of the books I read years ago just to get those thrill rides.
The only thing is I wish the narrator would add a little more excitement to his voice. He comes off as monotone. But the story is excellent!
