I feel like I waited for this book for years! I love Vlad and was thrilled he was getting his own story. Jeaniene Frost has done it again! I was worried that no woman would be good enough for Vlad but Leila is perfect for the old guy. She has just the right amount of angst so she won't be a pushover and a touch of innocence and vulnerability that will make her likeable.
This book has the same successful recipe that all of Ms. Frost's books have that makes it a lovely blend of romance and urban fantasy, seasoned with enough steamy scenes and gory battles to keep me mesmerized.
A lot of people are complaining about the end but I liked the conclusion. My only issue is that the book is way to short and that the wait will be excruciating.
Tavia Gilbert performs flawlessly and keeps the accents of so many characters consistent and believable. She has such emotion while she reads I bet the sound crew was blushing during some scenes.
Once again, Kate Morton delivers an epic historical tale with sublime characters and a gorgeous setting and prose beautiful enough to make one weep. Mysteries are unraveled in an unpredictable and delectable fashion. This book moves a little slower than some of the others but that just served to the extend the pleasure.
While the accent of the narrator was more Australian than English, she did a terrific job and enhanced the story with her performance. I own this book in three formats, that's how much I like it!
This is a fun little romance with excellent protagonists. While the story is a little predictable and cliche it was a pleasure to read. I am eagerly waiting for the next in the series.
DO NOT listen to the book because it was possibly some of the worst narration and horrific accents I have heard. It says something about the quality of book that I was still able to enjoy the story even when it was being butchered.
This is an absolutely extraordinary book by a brilliant author. Don't miss it. Absolutely spellbinding! The narration is done by Jack Davenport who lends the perfect voice for the characters. Although to be honest I could listen to Davenport read a phone book and be perfectly content.
I Loved everything about this book. I swapped back and forth between reading and listening. Great fun just don't get too attached to anyone character. Delving into the next one now!
This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. I love Susanna Kearsley's writing style and the beautiful characters that you come to love. She has her stoies flash back from modern times to some point in the past fluidly. I always am disappointed when it is time to change centuries but quickly become enraptured with the current tale and forget I was ever disconcerted.
This book all revolves around finding out the history of a small figurine called The Firebird. The story travels between London, Scotland, and Russian and the reader gets to experience it all like he is there because of Kearsey's wonderful imagery. There is romance, family ties, faith, and a touch of supernatural that makes it a perfect blend for me.
Katherine Kellgren does a spectacular job narrating this book and handles a variety of accents with perfection.
I am a huge Jeaniene Frost fan. I favor the Kat and Bones series best but this is a really good spin off. I enjoyed this book even more than the first. The heroine even outshines Vlad which I would think possible. It's definitely worth a listen but be sure not to miss out on her Night Huntress series.
I never read James Rollins or Rebecca Cantrell before but heard so many rave review that I had to give it a go. I LOVED this book. A mystery wrapped in history, religion, and the supernatural. Right up my alley! My only complaint is that this is book 1 and now I have a lot of waiting to do.
Jane Yellowrock is a wonderful character. She's a shapeshifting Cherokee woman in the modern world. This book is action packed, fast paced, filled with beautiful imagery and pearls of wisdom. The story is exciting and one can't help but love Jane. Khristine Hvam's narration is fantastic. I have listened to every book in the series because the story is so much richer on audio.
If you love The Hollows series by Kim Harrison you will adore this series as well!
This is an original take on the urban fantasy genre with Weather Gins. It has a strong start for a series and piqued my interest. The narration is wonderful and I plan on listening to the rest of the series.
This is my favorite in the series so far. You get to spend three days on a road trip with Jenks, Rachel, Ivy, and Trent Calamack as they face the biggest challenges so far.
A terrible evil is unleashed and causes battles so ugly that they still linger in my memory months later. Captivating, exciting, and heart pounding! It is a brilliant listen!!!!
