I've have mixed feelings about Katie MacAlister's books, but I'll avoid Barbara Rosenblat in the future.
The most interesting aspect of the story for me was the demon. A lot of the other stuff was a bit ho-hum, and it was confusing. I bought this as part of the sale on 1st of a series items, but what I didn't know is that it's not *really* the first of a series, it's the first of a sub-section of a series. Other characters that appear are apparently from previous Dragon series by the author.
Her voice was very annoying, and you could hear every single swallow she made. It was the most disgustingly wet-sounding narration I've ever heard.
To avoid other Dragon series novels from the same author. I might read her vampire books again, but this book was a bit annoying.
Possibly from the author, but definitely NOT from the narrator.
Perhaps. The content was somewhat entertaining, though I've read much better in the same genre. The heroine does a lot of things that make no sense and neglects to do things she should--even given the things she says to excuse them.
She was just awful. Her characterizations and accents were all over the place. When two women were talking, it was almost impossible to tell which was which. When she did do an accent, it varied between generic Southern and valley girl. This was especially problematic since the character are in and are from New Orleans--which has an accent all its own and which differs from other Southern accents.
No. It would be too boring to be a good movie.
If you haven't listened to this yet, skip it. Get the Kindle version and read it the old fashioned way if you're interested in reading the story, but spare yourself the listen.
I haven't read the print version, so I couldn't say.
I loved all the twists and turns the story took. There's so many surprises, and they're real surprises rather than things you can easily figure out before they're truly revealed.
Tim, by far, was my favorite. The voice he used for time reminded me of Jim Beaver as Bobby Singer on Supernatural. Since that's a character I love, it made it that much easier to take a liking to him.
I listen at work, so I couldn't have done that, but if I'd been reading it, I certainly could have finished it in a day easily and not been able to put it down.
I bought this book during the annual sale on a whim, and I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed it immensely and immediately recommended it to a friend when I finished. She asked what it was about, and I couldn't tell her because there are just so many twists and turns in the book that to say even that much would almost give too much away. I loved how the twists kept me on my toes and the easy banter between the characters.
I loved the way Ren's back story was reveiled. I thought it really fit with the play on time.
Of course, I always love to see Acheron, but I was happy also to see some other characters I have enjoyed in the past like Nick (who showed more of his old self than he has in a while) and Sundown (whose own book had been a disappointment given how much I like his character). I really liked both the hero and heroine in this book.
Choo is probably my favorite voice of his. However, I'm not fond of all his voices, and it grates on my nerves the way he pronounces Simi (not at all the way I've heard the author or anyone connected with her pronounce it).
There's always a few scenes in her books that make me laugh. It's one of the things I love about her books. I did shed a few tears, which was odd since I didn't even cry at Acheron's book.
Yes, the last book intruduced a new Pantheon, and it continues in this book. Some people have found that confusing, but to me it makes sense. In the DH world, pretty much all the major religions (current and past) have some basis in that world's reality. Without spoiling the back story, I will say that I found this book highlighted some connections between this Pantheon and the previous ones she's introduced rather well, also tying it with Acheron's history.
