I am an adult who listened to this book to preview it for my pre-teen daughter. Now we're both going to read/listen to the whole series.
This is such a great series. I get more enthralled with each new installment. I love the characters and by this point, they are so well developed that I can't help but feel like they are people who I have a personal relationship with. I enjoyed this opportunity to step back from the war with the Lessening Society to get to know Wrath and Beth better and to begin getting to know some lesser characters.
Throughout this book, I was a little sad because, while I hadn't heard this was the last book in the series, it seemed to be heading in that direction. I was relieved when, in the end, I suddenly realized that the author had instead left things open to so many future possibilities. I can't wait to see what the next book will bring.
J.R. Ward is a master storyteller. I also enjoy her Fallen Angel series. And Jim Frangione is THE VOICE of the BDB series. He is so talented. The voices of the different characters are distinguishable and the accents he affects add dimension to the reading. These two make a great team.
Definitely worth the credit (and I'd have been willing to give two credits for it).
This series is great. It put me a little in mind of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison (which is also fabulous if you haven't listened to it) but not so much so that it's like a copy cat. This author certainly knows how to keep you interested. I've already downloaded the third book and will probably blaze through the whole series within the week. Love it!
I loved it. Creative and suspenseful. I listened to it in a say and it ended too soon. I downloaded the second installment before the ending credits were done.
I am always sad when a good series ends. I am really glad to see this one come back. It was good to catch up with some "old friends" and get an idea of what the next generation of the breed faces. Mira and Kellen were just kids when we last heard from them and they have grown into quite a strong pair. Can't wait to see what happens next.
II liked this book. The audio performance was good. The plot was well thought out and interesting. It was simply a good book.
It just didn't seem to fit the story
While I don't think it was quite as bad as some of the previous reviewers claimed, it will certainly not make my favorites list. It did not live up to the hype in my opinion. And perhaps that is the issue for most. The expectations are simply too high.
Great story as always.
Yes and it was on par.
This is my favorite series but I was worried that I might be put off by the homosexual aspect of this installment. But J.R. ward is a master storyteller and it flowed so seamlessly that it was just a love story centered among the riveting plot of the series as a whole.
I purchased this because it was on sale. I'd never heard of the series but...it was on sale and I needed something to listen to while cleaning the house. I finished it in a day. I was absolutely riveting. Romantic, suspenseful and emotionally charged. I'll be buying the other 3, sale or not!
I get what some of you people are saying about the ending and it maybe being a little anti-climactic. I might have felt that way if I hadn't known that there was more. I personally thought this was well written, wrapped up well enough but left it wide open for upcoming books. I can't wait!
