I am a fan of Kerrelyn Sparks. This was the first of her books I read and remains one of my favorites. The female lead is a strong, take charge character. The male lead an agonized, without being annoying handsome vampire. A funny, interesting plot. The narration however was most disappointing. All accents -Scottish, Russian, Brazilian- sound the same. The heroine even when in mortal danger sounds as if she is on the brink of an orgasm or ready to sing "happy birthday Mr President" a la Marilyn Monroe. The narrator also appears to have been on a tight deadline as the narration is abnormally fast.
This is the most depressing, soul destroying and annoying novel I have listened to in a while. The protagonists are extremely dysfunctional and improve very little. The best character is the dog. The narration adds to the depression.
Well developed characters, funny and fast paced plot. A must listen for an enjoyable drive to and from work. It beats road rage every time.
Some books are meant to be read only. This one definitely falls in this category. The plot is simple and superficial. Not even a bit exiting. The narration is dreadful - as if an automaton was doing it. I can't reco
Slow pace, deplorable plot.
Everything. Wrong narrator for a romance.
Half the book. Speed up the tempo.
Donate the purchase price to a charity for stray cats.
I enjoyed the book the narrator is as always excellent. I have one challenge: why oh Why do they insisted on massacring the English language? A body human/animal is by definition dead. Please stop using "dead body". This is one of many examples as is the pronunciation of words, This occurs in every one of the "In Dead" novels I've listened to (and I've listened to them all). It occurs so many times that it grates on the ear.The editor(s) of the books and the producer(s) of the audio books are not doing their jobs. Shape up!
Narration dull as dirt water. Not one of Ms Sands' better books. Most exiting section was we're finally Leonides' is beheaded. I have noticed that the plot and characters of the latest novels in this series is not of the same standard as the first 6 . Perhaps it is time to retire this series.
The "quirks" of the main character Savannah, was supposed to be amusing. She ended up being so obnoxious and mean that I would smother her in her sleep if had to work with her.
The narration was emotionless and dull. I definitely won't purchase novels read by her in future.
The novel had potential but lost the plot.
Readers with no imagination and bloodlust.
The narration is that of a teenager. Given the fact that it is written in the 1st person and the protagonist is nearly 50, it is just irritating. Justice Calling is in essence a Penny-Horrible with no plot and lots of blood.
The eating of a human heart by the protagonist. This appears to be a thread that will continue in the series as this is where she gets knowledge & power from.
The slow pace, over dramatization of each and every experience, activity and action. It just drones on and on and on.
All of them.
Just give this a miss unless you need a cure to insomnia.
I am a huge fan of the In death series - I have all the audio books. However this one was so disgustingly-the-top that I skipped parts of the book. The gruesome violence as the protagonist commits the crimes and compulsive profanity by all the characters was hard to stomach. This book was not an enjoyable experience.
