It brought many of the earlier story and problems together. I can't wait for more so hopefully the spin-off includes the Ware's.
You can't listen to it all in one sitting even though you would want to.
I liked the Narrator because she brought the characters to life. The problem is...you ever had one of those friends that talked and talked and talked and you come to the point where you kind of drift off wishing you could but in to either stop them talking or get them to back track? It started off well and two hours in, I wanted to kill the heroine. How could anybody be that annoying? There was the requisite too many misunderstandings that just got down right irritating. Not a whole lot of action. I got tired of the heroine constantly ready to believe everything negative. She might as well have given herself up to the bad guys in the beginning and saved the rest of us about seven hours of her repeating the same actions over and over again.
The heroine and replace her with someone who has a clue.
The book did have some good bantering but even that began to drone on. I really would have liked to see these characters work together instead of listening to a book full of the heroine talking to herself. Constantly. Of course she comes up with more wrong answers than right. The ending was a cliff hanger. I hate those. The fact that you won't find out the outcome of that story until book three was even more frustrating. It wasn't worth a credit. It's entertainment value lie in the narrators characterization of the characters. This is what saved me from returning the book for a refund.
I am not a very descriptive person but, WOW! I loved the Gargoyle angle. Right now everything seems to be centered on a Werewolf or Vampire. There are a mixture of races which gives me hope for this series. This is one of the few books that didn't point you to the answer in the first hour of the book and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were a lot of sub stories that didn't overwhelm the book or take over the story. There was just enough to let you know that there is a lot more going on than just this initial story. The heroine was a little weak, but her over protective family clearly showed you why. You get past that and the romance that builds between Terrick and Larrissa gives the story a chance to develop gradually instead of prematurely climaxing and throwing a lot of ridiculous misunderstandings in the way of an actual story. Or lots of sex. which is very irritating when you would like to understand the story itself. I liked it because I didn't have to spend 8 out of the 9 hours and 57 minutes listening the same sex positions in just about everyone's book. Thank you Danielle for giving us an actual tale to follow.!
When Terrick's warriors decided to follow him when the council in his Clan wavered on their loyalty to him.
I LOVE Tavia Gilbert. I buy most books narrated by her because she is very good at giving characters their own voices in the stories she narrates.
Clash of the Realms
I would recommend Danielle Monsch as an author to watch along with this series.
The action started immediately and continued throughout! I also loved Le'vay the gargoyle. What a surprise to have a funny and unexpected sidekick. He appeared often enough to keep you listening and laughing at is quips. I enjoyed Shay and Viper. Two alpha personalities constantly protecting the other. They were constantly denying their feelings for each other but their actions blatantly showed the opposite. Very enjoyable to see these two fall hard. Le'vay, although cowardly was just funny!
Surprisingly, this was the first time I didn't compare one of the other books I had read to this one.
This book was very misleading. It wasn't really a romance. Just because you have sex doesn't make it a romance. The questions about whether or not she was actually a descendent of Vlad Tapesh was very fuzzy?! Gwen was whiny and unsure of everything except that she really didn't care about her baby's father. One who came off as a weak punk because he loved her.
The most dissappointing one I have ever listened to. This book had no heart only the whiner that is Gwen because everything seemed to be about what she wanted to do. I was still looking for all the things she said about Alex in this book but never could find. Maybe it was in the portions that was cut out of the audio book. Truely a waste of my time and I strugged to finish it hoping it would get better or that they would have some kind of resolution.
Draggos was not afraid to let his feelings be known for his mate. I can't believe Pia would want him to big wuss, but it was cute how he softened up to her a lot. I also am so glad that he and Rune finally talked. I didn't like Rune's book because I didn't believe their friendship should have broken up over such a weak misinterpretation. Especially since they had been best friends for centuries.
Her voice impressions. It brought the other characters to life. The voice of Evie gave me pause but for the most part, they were good.
When he goes with his instincts to find her even though he promised to give her a week where she was.
I sure hope she has more of these coming soon because there are some serious new characters.
Fast! Exciting! Addictive!
When Mist was being interrogated by the police and could sense the dragons coming to get her.
No, but I thought he did a decent job with this story.
Not really. I just like the story line and how it was told. I am happy that it wasn't about vampires.
It was hard to believe that Rune would drop his friend whom he had known almost since the beginning of time from one conversation. After listening to this book which was long and drawn out, all I felt at the end was dissappointed. I couldn't believe that Tiago forgave him for him actually trying to keep him from his mate. He didn't even tell Draggo the situation between himself and Carling. He threw a major tantrum from a 30 second conversation and ended his friendship. I was not happy at all with how things developed. This particular book, maybe it could be more to some one elses taste.
I would but this book stank! I really didn't like how this story dragged.
I am still stuck on the friendship thing. Not believable, how does anyone dump a friendship that has stood the test of time over an argument that only one side knew what was going on. You trust for millinia and then abruptly not without a clear reason. I hope the next ones have a better story line.
I absolutely loooved the other books. This one...not so much. I had to hear that same old crap about Quin and Blay and Vishous and.... Wait a minute. It was supposed to be Paynes and Manello's book right? Wrong! Nothing against it but I really don't want to hear about someone struggling to come out of the closet. Nor did I believe why V had such anger management issues about somebody he knew all of.. what... 5 minutes. Probably my last book also. I thought the book left you with more questions and answers to other questions, I didn't want answered. J.R,Ward? Not happy. Not happy.
I loved this story and the narrator. I read the comment which was just a little rediculous since this is a "paranormal story" with many "imaginative things in it. Real life? Try the interracial couple in Britain that had twins, one white and one black. I liked the ending and felt everyone at the end got exactly what they deserved! Good job Michele Hauf!!!!!!
