    Not worth the $4.95 I spent on this audio. I am a "child" of the 60's and still did not find this interesting. Stopped listenig after 2 hrs into the story. Tries to be clever and thought provoking but misses the mark by far.

    It was immediate for Roman. In 3,000 years, he'd never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed. Everything. Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.

    What would have made The Vampire King better?

    A story that flows, not this chopped up one we get to listen to. Also more dialogue between the characters. Nearly 5 hours of narration gets old.


    Has The Vampire King turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I will never buy another book by this author.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The only redeeming quality is that Anthony Ferguson was the narrator, he is a very talented narrator and I have enjoyed many books he has read.Too bad he had such a terrible story to read.Anthony Ferguson was the reason I purchased this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The first 5 hours of this book is all narration with practically no dialogue between characters. The story jumps around so much it is disconcerting. One minute the story is in a hospital and the next it is in a house without any connection or chapter break..New characters are introduced without any warning. One minute you are reading about the king and the next paragraph it jumps to new characters. This might be ok if reading but not for listening. At least there should be a new chapter to bring in things that at the time are not connected in any way. Overall this is not a well written book. The story is weak and so slow during the first 5 hours with hardly any dialogue. I did listen through to the end because I thought something was going to happen. What a disappointment. No surprises as it is easy to predict the story. I read a lot of PNR and this one falls very short. The others usually have me hanging on to hear what happens next. Also they have a lot of dialogue. Listening to this book it seems that a lot of the story was cut out. When finding out vampires exist there should be more than a 3 word sentence. Perhaps this is bad editing because it does seem that parts of the story had been cut out. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    Nothing like Black Dagger Brotherhood. Sorry I wasted a credit. A lot of narration and little dialogue between characters. Uninteresting story, couldn't listen to it. I tried skipping through but it did not get any better. Seemed to just drag on and on. Not for me.

    Would you listen to The Cold, Cold Ground again? Why?

    Yes, I am re listening to it right now. Just too good to read once.


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    Doyle is an excellent narrator. I believe he really brought the story to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Do not want to give away spoilers but I did nearly cry when one of the men is killed in and IRA attack. It is easy to get attached to McKinty"s characters.

    I have read the entire series and each book is better than the previous one.

    Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack. It's a relaxing break from her infernal home as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won't hesitate to execute her on sight. But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels.

    This book turned out to be much better than I expected. At first I felt that the narrators voice was too young for the character. As the story went on I didn't even notice it any longer. Angela Rysk does a great job with the various voices. The men sound like men. I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys PRN, or angel/demon books.You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to Debra Dunbar's next book.

    Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten-a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets....

    Yes, not publish the book..


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alan Dean Foster again?

    Probably not.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oliver Wyman is a great narrator, he performed Monster Hunters Inc. and it is great.I think he has done a very good job with the material he was given.


    Was Lost and Found worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the audio version of this book. Part 1 was only ok. Part 2 I didn't get far into before quitting listening.Just too much back and forth boring chit chat, some "technical", seems to drag on.I noticed this in Part 1 but it wasn't too bad. A character is introduced near the end of Part 1. She is supposed to be some super brain, I got tired of listening to her go on and on.I am going to skip to the last chapter and see what happens. The premise is good unfortunately the story isn't so good.

    This story is weak compared with her Immortal Guardians series. I could not get invested in the characters. It was more like a fairy tale "dragon slayer saves the princess" type of story.
    I will give the next book in the series a chance since I loved the Immortal Guardians.
    If Immortal Guardians was a dog I would say it was a German Shepard and Shields is a frou-frou lap dog.

    This is a great story that must be described as Thriller/Adventure/Science. At first I was not sure this book was for me but I kept listening and am glad I did. There is so much packed into this story that I cannot relate it without giving spoilers. I will say keep with it, don't give up. There is a great sea adventure/battle that lasts a long time but is really good. This is not my usual genre, PNR. However I still loved this book and can recommend it to all readers who enjoy a good suspense/action/thriller/science story and even PN fans.

    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrator. I enjoy listening to his voice, he puts so much feeling into each character they really come alive.


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

    Yes, but I would spoil the story for others is I were to explain it.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not want this to end. I was sad it did end and would love to see another book that continues on from this one. I know the author does not write sequels, but perhaps a future book about this family with flashbacks to the 15th century.
