    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    Overall

    I have never written a review before, but I have been listening to books since before Audible was hatched.

    I have noticed readers voices before, but never really been put off by one. This book had me wondering if it was read by a machine, initially. After getting hooked on Wizard's First Rule, I dove into this book only to be highly frustrated by the reader's voice and inflections.

    I will likely abandon the Audible copy to read it - I hope you have a different experience. I will actively avoid anything read by this narrator.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I do not understand how Amazon can publish this kind of material without some serious warnings. Careful not to allow this into the hands of young adults/teens.


    Has Fifty Shades of Grey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes
