    Did Basil Sands do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Sands used voice inflection, tone and volume to differentiate between characters. It made the story flow smoothly.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably, just because it was so unusual.

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Phantom Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because of Kristen Potter. She is my new favorite narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Flow from one book to another is flawless. Love the character development throughout the series.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Appreciated the voice inflection and emotion conveyed. Very easy to determine character speaking and follow conversations. Narrator becomes a part of the story. Loved the fact that she was able to convey in voice the exact character and personality of each person.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm a sucker for romance, good triumphing over evil and a happy ending. This series has it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Diane Duvall and Kristen Potter are a perfect partnership!

    In all his 400 years, Rayven never met a woman like Rhianna McLeod. She is a vision of light, of warmth, of everything he is not - nor can ever be. Doomed to live forever in darkness and solitude, he knows all too well the risk in getting close to her, yet he hungers for her with a fierce passion he swears he will never allow himself to feel. Rhianna's father sold her to Rayven to put food on the table so she had no choice but to go with the dark stranger. To her surprise, he gives her everything she wants: the finest clothes, education, and the run of the castle - everything, that is, except his touch.

    What did you like best about A Darker Dream (Love Spell Romance)? What did you like least?

    Love this author and I have enjoyed everyone of her books but this narrator attempts multiple accents which are horrible. The voice she imparts for the lead character invokes images of the hunch back of Noterdame not the sexy-masculine gorgeous leading men typical for this author. It is so distracting that the book is barely tolerable. It will help if you increase the speed to 1.5 x. But if you haven't purchased the audio version yet, skip it and get the written version.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christine Padovan?

    Kristen Potter


    Could you see A Darker Dream (Love Spell Romance) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not based on the audio version
