Took away stars because I could not listen to this narrated by Nick Sullivan. Maybe the director or producer is at fault, but the result was terrible. Made the characters turn out differently than the other novels. If this had been my first Mitch Rapp book, I would have never read a second. Please redo narration.
I hope book five is better because I like Terrible's character, plus the 1970's ghetto slang is fun to hear. I agree with others that this book is not as strong as others. I would have rather had more characters added (and more of the current characters developed) in place of her talking about feeling inadequate. Also, talking about the drugs the same way, so very often, got old. Although I purchased and liked the first three books (and listened to them twice each), I found myself getting bored about 3/4 into this book number four. I hope book five is better so this author can continue to make it.
I don't know who is suppose to manage this sort of thing, but someone should have helped transition the characters' previous audio development (which was performed wonderfully by Marguerite Gavin in Kim Harrison's first five Hollows books) to this new narrator. After cringing about 20 times, I purchased the book.
I would buy another copy of this audio book if it was re-read by Marguerite Gavin.
Kim Harrison does another great job. Thank you Kim Harrison!
Fate's Edge is a must listen, as are Ilona Andrew's first two books in this series. The Edge "world" is filled with unique people and fun lands. One book each year is not nearly enough. Plus, Renee Raudman is a perfect choice to bring this world to life. Thank you so much. Written by: an Edger!
Say it isn't so!!!! Wait for Marsters' schedule to open up!!!!! How UNFAIR to all us loyal audio listeners. I am so disappointed, so saddened. Should we boycott this book in audio?
Although I enjoyed the first three Frankenstein books in this five-book series, I found book four to be a rip-off of a credit (because it was a rehash of the previous plot, then just kinda ended), and book five to be filled with too many one-liners and unlikely behavior. Sometimes it felt like I was a fly on the wall of some good old boy's poker night. For example, the "on-air talent pep-talk" discussion happening while the world is being invaded seemed ridiculous.
Also, annoying and disappointing was using a southern accent for nearly half the characters who are suppose to reside in Colorado. Either change the venue or the accents next time, please.
I consider myself a Dean Koontz fan since I have well over 25 books and/or audio, but these last two books motivated me to write a review. Sorry.
Premise was good. But, I did not care about the story or the characters enough to finish the book.
Had I know about the child porn I would have skipped this one. Have purchased and read ALL her other work. What was she thinking about her loyal fans? Not much apparently. Please do yourself a solid favor and skip this one. I am not kidding. This upset me for days. I avoid this type of writing and feel like I was somehow tricked into paying for this horror. I choose to pay and read Barr's Annie Pigeon series because her character is a national park ranger. (This work should have been with a different heroin, and that would have given us a heads-up about the 180 degree directional change of the series). Warn us more openly next time! I certainly feel like I got burned!
Although I love Dean Koontz's books, we should have been warned that this is only half a book.
lol fun thriller
