I love this series! I thought the action was intense, a little more so than in the previous books. There are moments, as said in previous reviews, where you lol and look around to see if anyone is looking at you do it! The characters really draw you in! I can't get enough of Al or Trent! I have to say the end did surprise me. You aren't used to Raechel trying the easy/safe way. Leaves you hanging until the next book...can't wait...a year....(sigh). As far as the credits go.... they must be crazy! If you do the 1 credit a month at 14.95 you are paying about 30 bucks for one book???!!! Cheaper to buy elsewhere. Good thing I got this book when it was on sale!
I would recommend this series. I always encourage people to take the time and start with book 1. the author does give a brief recap of what is going on but you really miss out on some great stuff and significant character development if you skip books. it makes the lead characters more "believable" when you have gone through their growth "with them". Starting out in book 1 and 2 you may find a few inconsistencies in things the author tells you is possible in this world. stick with it, the books, story, characters, and narration get better and better with each book. they really are fun, there is a lot of action/adventure, magic, mystery, comedy, unique characters, creatures and some of awesome sexual tension! Cassie is a great heroine, worth the listen. Hunt the moon, book 5 is the best so far, tempt the stars, book 6 is good but just a little slower. definitely worth it, try the series.
yes, I would recommend the series starting from book 1. you could definitely start with a later book in the series and figure out what is going on because the author gives a brief recap. However, if you do this there will definitely be something lacking in the story and your feel for where the characters have "come from" and you won't be as invested in their relationships. it is worth it. Kara's character is growing, the mystery is good, there is action, and they are fun.
i would recommend this book. i think it is a good second installment in this series. i will definately get the third. I feel there is a lot of potential here, and the author is just getting the ground work down. interested to see where this all goes. there is still self doubt with the lead character Kara. She doesn't yet see her own potential and value but she is definately growing. Her power is growing and taking an interesting turn. The mystery is good, the crime scences are descriptive but not as shocking as the first book, not quite as dark. the romantic/sexual tension is good. The narration is good as well. give it a try. i would say you should start with the first book because it flows better that way. you don't want to miss how Kara got where she is, however they recap enough in this book you would get the basics.
I really liked this book. sure the lead female was a little weaker than I first expected but I feel like she had grown by the end of the book. I feel like as I get into the series she is really going to transform. not every lead female starts out of the gate kicking butt, they all got to start somewhere! I certainly wanted more by the time I was done with this one. lots of potential! The crime scenes were pretty descriptive and they talk about the torture of the victims, some may have a hard time with it but I never felt it was way over the top or just for shock value. the mystery and drama of it were done well. I am definitely getting the second one in the series and put the others in my wish list.
absolfreakinlutely! the print version is fantastic but Lorelei King brings something soooo great to the story. she was made to narrate this series. her timing is fantastic and she can totally deliver the snark!
if you haven't started this series you NEED to. start with book 1 and enjoy. they get better and better as you go, which says a lot because they are so good. mystery, suspense, fantastic humor, wonderful paranormal characters that are very unique, great story telling and VERY HOT! thank you Ms. Jones for keeping it hot!!! this is the fifth book and the chemistry is still intense, never boring.
this book had a strong female that was complicated and I thought the lead male was great too. There is great action, and it was fun.
He is a great narrator. he does accents really well! sexy voice.
I did try another book, my friend convinced me that the series was awesome, worth going back to. I HATED the first few chapters and gave up on this first book. I don't think sexual coersion is romantic at all. Rape is not sexy. My friend said the book got better, that the others in the series were not like that at all. She convinced me to go back to the first to get the back story and continue on. The second half of the book was ok. it took FOREVER in my opinion for the lead male to realize what a stupid @#%#ing bully he had been, and how he had hurt his female. The action was good and liked the potential for series. The other books in the series were quite good. "bad boy" but not hurtful men, fun sassy females, some stronger than others, romance (real romance) and some steamy scenes as well. Sometimes there is humor and they are a lot of fun. The following books remind me of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld books. I think you could skip this one, listen to the second and figure out the back story. The narration was really good. I think one of my favorite narrators, especially for the male characters in the books. Some female voices are good...some not so much.
i would recommend this book and the series, you need to start with book one. it is action, mystery/suspense, drama, romance (hot), and FUN!
This is the best in the series, i think every book has been better and better. i love the action and Renee Raudman does a great job with the narration. She is excellent with the delivery of sarcasm. i love a good edgy,witty sarcastic strong female lead! This book has great sexual tension too. Things get kinda hot in this one!
better and better
Tavia Gilbert is a terrific narrator. she just gets it. she gets the wit,sarcasim, romance, how to distinguish between characters, flow and what as listeners we hope for in a performance. love her.
yes, and i almost did.
this is a great sequel, better than the first book. Jeaniene Frost is so much fun to read. i love her sense of humor and she keeps things hot too.
yes, i would recommend this series. this is the second book in the series, i really like the action and the characters that gena showalter writes about. I really like the romance...BUT i guess i am so used to the lords of the underworld series being so romantic AND sexy that i felt after all the build up when they main characters finally got together it fell flat. the romance of the characters and the story was very present and i love that, the characters themselves are sexy, the build up is so fun, i just thought compared to the other books it was almost a side note, in this one, the final get together wasn't epic.
i still love the series and the world gena showalter brings to life and will wait anxiously for the next. worth the credit!!
leaves you anxiously waiting for the next book
hard to say, he REALLY does a great job with the male voices!
