While the narrator was wonderful and the writer talented, I just couldn't get into the characters in this book. I felt that the differences/similarities between the dimensions were not different enough in some cases, but the things that were very different just seemed odd. I just found myself not really caring what happened to the main character and felt she made really bad choices.
I enjoyed the first book of this series but this second book seemed to drag on and on, only getting interesting in the last hour. Then, just as I was beginning to enjoy the story, it was over. I will probably listen to the next book in hopes that it is better than the 2nd. The best part of this was the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. She was wonderful, as always.
While not the best series I have listened to, the story line was unique and entertaining. The narrator was, as always, fantastic.
The plot was overly complicated and drawn out a bit, but still enjoyable. I just felt like towards the end I wanted it to hurry up and be over. A lot of the plot was predictable. This is kind of a second rate Darynda Jones book as the story lines are sooo similar. But Darynda Jones does a better job. (see Death and the Girl Next Door)
That being said, I still thought it was a good read and worth a credit, especially if you enjoyed book one.
The narrator definetely makes this story a great listen. She is one of my favorites!
Darynda Jones is by far one of my favorite authors and this book exceeded my expectations.
I love the dynamic between Cameron and Jared.
I love everything abut Lorelei King's performance! I don't know how she has time to voice so many of my favorite books, but I am very glad she does!
I laughed out loud quite a few times.
The only bad part about the book was that it ended. I am really looking forward to the next one and I don't know if I can wait until OCTOBER! :(
Angels, Demons & Grays
When the main characters finally kissed, and the repercussions of that.
I LOVE Amanda Ronconi! She could read the phone book and make is sound great!
I did look forward to getting back to the story.
The ending was a little abrupt and obviously continues on in another book, but it would have been nice to get a little more in this first book.
This book was a wonderful new view on the paranormal. I loved how the author wove back and forth between the past and present, giving us bits and pieces of the main character's background. Very well done.
I found the relationship between the main character and the two men in her life intriguing and I look forward to seeing how it progresses.
It took me a couple of chapters to get used to the reader, but she really made the characters come alive, and now I can't imagine it being read by anyone else.
I couldn't wait to get back to it each day!
I am surprised this isn't listed under erotica! Once you get past the sex scene that lasts SIX CHAPTERS, (I kid you not) the story isn't too bad. Bbut seriously, six chapters? Way too much for me.
I agree with past reviews that this story started out very slowly. A bit too much descriptive writing about the scenery and not enough about the characters, but it does pick up midway through the book. The narrator was very hard to get used to. She has a very wispy voice and every sentence just trails off..... Once the story started to pick up I was able to get past the voice, but I am not sure if I will go to the next book in the series if it is the same reader.
I wasn't sure if I would like this because it is for the junior set, but this was a great story line and I cannot wait for the next book! The writing was fantastic and the narration was great.
