What happened??? I was so excited about this book (as I LOVED all 3 previous installments) and Eric Dove is my favorite narrator. Once I started listening I was so disappointed! What was wrong with this book? I thought I was being too critical until I started reading other reviews from my fellow Audible listeners. Thank goodness I am not alone! The audio is too fast and confusing. It completely ruined the story and the enjoyment of listening to Eric Dove for me. It was a struggle to finish this book.
Much like the first book of this series, I was instantly drawn into the story. Again you are transported to a beautifully written Sci-Fi world (set in the same time as the first) with non-stop action and thrills. Although the worlds are similar, the characters, planet and story are very different. Unlike the slow burn of the first book, this one starts out with a bang and never lets up until the end. It was absolutely thrilling. Narration was great too. I can’t wait until the next book by this author.
Much like the first book this was a light and fluffy beach read. I enjoyed the story and it did have some funny parts, but overall it was just ok. I only purchased this book because the first one had a cliffhanger ending. (annoying) Thankfully this book wraps up the story nicely and I felt it came to a satisfying conclusion. Even though there is a third book, I didn’t feel compelled to purchase it. Definitely not what the publishers want but I was happy as a listener.
If you are in the mood for a light and fun listen than look no further. However, if you want a story that is multi-layered and complex you should definitely skip this one. This is your typical beach read (very light and fluffy) It was a sweet story with some likeable parts and overall I found it enjoyable. But Mermaids just really don’t do it for me. Unfortunately it ends in a cliffhanger so I felt compelled to get book 2. If that sort of thing annoys you, don’t bother getting this one.
If you enjoyed the first book of the Forbidden Bond Series than you will love book 2. From the start it is a non-stop thrill-ride of action, adventure and mystery. My heart was racing after the first few chapters! Although I expected this book to continue the story of Dani and Chase, it focused instead on Dani's half sister Brandi. Wow did I really enjoy her story. The author did include characters from the first book but it was nice to get Brandi's story and for the author to introduce some delicious new characters (Greyson, Derek). I'm looking forward to the next book and I hope it focuses on Griffin.
This short novella is from Ansel's point of view and I just loved getting inside his head. If you loved Sweet Filthy Boy then you must get this one. It might be a short listen but it definitely packed a big punch. Not to mention Jason Carpenter's narration is terrific.
5 star listen!
I was surprised to discover this was the final book in the Fallen Angels Series. What about 7 books for 7 souls – or at least that is what I had assumed. It makes me wonder if JR Ward got tired of writing this series and just decided to end it at book 6. The one was good but it did feel rushed compared to the previous books in the series. I would have preferred a little more “meat on the bone” to this story but I guess the author had another view. Fair enough, it’s her series.
Overall I mostly enjoyed this book and I am satisfied with the overall conclusion even if it did feel rushed. As with all the other books, Devina was the true star and her character made me laugh and at times feel sorry for her. I credit Ward for her brilliant writing and character development.
I would recommend this series to fans of Ward or those who enjoy paranormal romance or fantasy.
This is such a hard review for me to write since I really can’t explain why I kept listening to this one. I think I have a love/hate relationship with this book. There were so many things I didn’t like about the main character and many of her choices/actions were unrealistic for someone her age. I usually don’t have an issue with suspending my belief when it comes to paranormal romance but I struggled with this one. All the negative comments aside, I just couldn’t stop listening to this one. What was it about this book?? I suppose I really enjoyed the mystery and just had to know everyone’s deep dark secrets. Although not all the secrets were revealed in this book. I’m sure I will purchase the next one because the price is right and I apparently need some answers.
I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series but Origins is by far the best one yet.
After that gut-wrenching cliffhanger in Opal, I was a little hesitant to dive into this one. It’s a game changer for sure and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. Without giving away too many details, this one felt like two stories in one. The first being Katy’s experience as a prisoner by Daedalus and the second the future of the Luxen race and the big reveal (the game changer). The dual POV was a nice addition to this series as well. I really enjoyed getting into Daemon’s head in this one. There’s another cliffhanger with Origins but thankfully it won’t rip your heart out like Opal did. I can’t wait to listen to the final installment of this fantastic series!
I am so disappointed with this book! It was such a colossal waste of time and I will never be able to get back those 23+ hours I lost on this horrible book.
I should have expected disappointment after book two but I had high hopes that it was just suffering from "middle book syndrome". Sadly no...
I adored A Discovery of Witches, thought Shadow of Night was boring, but I seriously disliked The Book of Life. It did not tie up any loose ends, there was absolutely no resolution on Ashmole 782 (really, what was the point of all of that?) and it was flat out boring.
I honestly don't know what happened to this series!
I stayed up all night listening to this book and it was well worth being exhausted the next day. What a fantastic listen and a huge surprise from this great writing duo. I honestly didn't think they could pull off another book as good as The Beautiful Series but they did! I'm just mad at myself for not listening to this one sooner!! I can't wait for the next installment and I can assure you I will not wait 3-4 months before devouring it.
5 Sweet Stars!!
