Very good read. Just enough plot and steam. I recently canceled my membership because of the lack of African American romance. No offense to those that like the hard novels (cursing every other word), but that is not me. I have no problem with reality, but I live it daily and I like a little fantasy. Now I see they are adding additonal titles by Brenda, Rochelle alers, and Beverly Jenkins. I may have to rejoin.
My favorite kind of male character. Loner lacking social skills; finds love!
He reminds me a lot Gregory from Christine Feehan's Dark Magic.
She is awesome. I have listened to hundreds of audio books, and she is the best narrator hands down!!! Usually a narrator is good with one gender or type of voice, but she is totally multitalented. She performs the male voices as well as she does the female voices. You can even determine which character is talking before a name is mentioned because she differentiates the voices in a way that allows you to identify the character. The best thing is the characters' voices remain the same throughout the series. Amazing!
Yes it was interesting and has just the right amount of steam, without being raunchy.
I would compare it to the Westmoreland Series. I have often said the Madari's Series lacked the steam of the Westmorelands, but this proved me wrong. Some of the previous books in the series left a lot to the imagination, but this one filled in the blanks!
No. You get used to him part way through the book. But I just don't care for him as a narrator. His voice is to deep to play the feminine roles, which tend to make him over act it out. Nobody in the book says "thing", everybody says "thang", drives me crazy. I am pretty sure this isn't Brenda, but something he added.
The story is good, it is the typical BJ. I enjoyed the story, although I must admit I am more drawn to the Westmorelands. Warning..the narrator is going to take some serious getting use to. If he says "thang" one more time I am going to scream...lol. The narrator tends to make parts of the story seem very theatrical. Maybe he is going to get better, but I don't really think I am going to be able to take more of Peter. It took me almost a week to listen to this story, and that is really telling. Normally it is difficult of turn off her audio books without finishing them.
This one had a few to many story lines. I found myself dong some fast forwarding. This one does give you the Quinn and Blah story we have all been waiting for.
It was good, but it just took a little while to get into the story. It didn't capture your attention immediately the way the Nightwalkers did. I would have probably liked it better if I had not already listented to the Nightwalker Series. The narrator left a little to be desired after the awesome narration of Xe Sands in the Nightwalkers.
All in all it was pretty good.
I have listened to this one numerous times, and I love it each time. The story is addicting, and add XeXe, you got a winner. Although I like some of the other series, none compares to the Nightwalkers!
It was OK, but was longer than it needed to be. I was looking forward to Zacarias' story, but his story was drawn out, a lot of repeated dialogue. The story made you feel a little like you rewound the MP3 player because you heard the same story line numberous times. Maybe there is a minimum on pages/hours required by the publisher to account for the repeated information. The book could have been maybe 5 hours shorter. I have been a long time fan of the Dark Series, Drake Sisters, and Ghostwalkers, but I am starting to see a trend of the books becoming drawn out. I would like to see more interaction with the other Carpathian's like in previous stories, this would better fill the space than the repetitive lines.
Luv Christine Feehan, but I wanted my money back for this one. I wrote here directly because I was too disappointed with this one. The book was very drawn out unneccesarily. It was really unrealistic. There was too much focus on ther heroine. One of the very few I have not reread or relistened to with no intention of doing so.
There seems to be a lot of negative reviews, but I liked the book. Granted the book is senual, but lets face it, if you read BJ that is what you are looking for. I am very critical of audiobooks and its narrators, but I found the book and narrator really good.
I liked it. The Westmoreland men are great. I like them even better than the Madaris family.
