The plot was a twist on the old femme fatale getting military secrets and what happens after that. There was an element of a Cold War but on another planet. The beginning had a seduction and sex but there was not freedom to continue the affair. Not just sex scenes linked by a weak plot. I rooted for the star crossed lovers and listened well past my bedtime. I couldn't figure out how they would resolve the trouble. I look forward to more.
The fantasy world of a post fae apocalyptic dublin is very complicated, dark and unrelentingly hard. This is not a stand alone novel. The book was well crafted and new character developments abound. The book answers a few questions and finally things are looking up for a one or two characters. My biggest criticism is that the book brings things to a climax and there is virtually no denouement. I enjoyed the book especially Ms. Lane's spying but, it was a LONG time coming and the length too SHORT for the wait. Also it would be nice if there was more progress overall. Give loyal fans a gift to tie things up like a novella or two. If it takes another two plus years to get the next book out mayhap I might just be forgettin' about it all. Phil Gigante's voice is sublime for this series Natalie Ross is perfect. I liked the book but it did NOT meet my expectations! Trilogy smilogy I am sick of not getting the whole story. The trend does not amuse.
This book took the plot of "gay man turning straight man gay" and turned it on its ear. The two protags are vividly drawn and lovable. A character driven story that was believable and just refreshing. Worth a credit yes. The narrator made this book. What a bloody great talent and I loved his character voices. I want him on my GPS. I would not mute him or ignore his directions.
This book read like a grooming manual for pedophiles and their subsequent tawdry affairs. The taboo subject matter beautiful priest (yeah right) the virgin whore (really) left me flat. I think there is a thin line between perversion and erotica.
The plot. pacing, Nucking Futz Nix, humor and and chemistry, What more could you ask for.? Another winner from Kresley Cole. Any fan of the IAD series will not be disappointed. My only gripe is the use of the word little. I ate this book up like one who was starved so I need give it a second listen but this book shone for me. Love Kresley Cole. She stays true to the series and still keeps us guessing. Dark Skye introduces new dimensions and a few new characters and is fantastic.
This was a very funny book in parts. The narration was adequate but not as rich as the writing demanded. Having a snarky comment read in a monotone just did not cut it for me. I liked the humor but the ex boyfriend was a yawn and eluded capture for way too long. The author describes this group of super handsome guys who are all in phenomenal shape and brilliant. The baddest of the bad or best of the best and they fail to find one lowlife idiot. Drove me nuts. Writing descriptions of characters portraying them as the best at their job and then not being able to do it rankles me and I find it happens way too often. Worth a try but probably not be getting anymore. I think a different narrator would've changed the tone for me and made it rise a star.
I kept thinking this went on for way too long and wanted the book to get to the point. Not enough story just same conflict over and over. Started out very well then fell flat.
I have listened to or read all of John Sanford's books. I listened to this book and was irked by the lack of progress in the case. It is well written and the narrator is wonderful. Just not my favorite. Has flashes of the greatness that is John Sanford. I found myself thinking that the villain was not smarter than all of the BCA so why did it take so long to catch him. Then there is the moment when you say I totally saw that coming and it led to me being disappointed. Overall worth it because who doesn't love Letty, Lucas, Weather and f##ing Flowers.
I am so squee happy that I found this book. It is one of my favorites by the grand dame Georgetter Heyer. Hello lock meet key. That is the fit of this narrator to this story. I highly recommend you buy this wonderful book. I read it and loved it and had the abridged version and sighed because I wanted the full "fotherby". Now I have it. Great story, great narration, great characters what more do you need? ( I know Arabella then I will probably embarrass myself.) Love this book. Thank you to the publisher Naxos books the updated version of this classic it was a long time coming. If the world has multiple versions of Pride and Prejudice then it is high time for Heyer.
Kresley Cole really hits her stride when she writes the two stories about the Woede. Robert Petkoff is genius with the British and Australian accents. He narrated Josh Bazell's book and you cannot imagine the range until you hear the difference. This story has such great chemistry between the two protagonists. It just makes me want more. Even though I own the books in print I had to get the audio and wow I cannot believe the price. Amazes me that books I hate cost twice as much. Well done whoever decides this.
It is the southern setting or the characters or the plot or all of the above but I listen to this book whenever I want to relax. It is one of my favorites. Some parts are a bit earthy but I think it adds to the flavor. The characters are so complex and sympathetic. It is like Sandra Brown's Envy or Ain't She Sweet by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. A good mix of pleasure and pain. I read all kinds of books but this book hits me where I live.
