I love the Cassie Palmer series and I LOVE Cynthia Holloway as a narrator. The narrator for this book just seems to do it all wrong compared to the voices Cynthia Holloway did with the Cassie Palmer series. Since many of the characters show up in both, it's just weird having completely different voices and having words pronounced wrong.
I read the book when it first came out, and I was excited when I saw that it is now available in audiobook form, but I will continue to just read the Dorina series and listen to the Cassie series because of the narrators.
Anyways, it is a great series if you are a fan of the Cassie Palmer series. You get to learn more about some of the smaller characters. Dorina is kind of mentioned in the last Cassie book.
The narrator isn't the best, but it wasn't horrible and it didnt distract me from the story once I got used to her. I took a star away because of the narrator.
The actual book is pretty awesome! The book is slow going for the first 3-4 chapters. After that, it really begins to pick up and the story just sucks you in. I usually do not like the young adult books, but this one is nice. I'm definitely going to check out the rest of the books in this series.
I liked this series! I thought the narrator did a good job. She fixes a few of the voices in the later books. I really enjoyed the story. I wish there were more books in this series or that the author would make books from the point of view of some of the other characters. The books do have a lot of "romance," but I like the steamy bits! LOL I've recommended this series to a bunch of friends and they all loved it as well!
So I took a chance on this book. I can't even get past the first half. The narrator's voices sound too similar for each character, so I have no idea who is supposed to be talking half the time. I just cant get into the book b/c I cant figure out who's talking half the time and the story will jump around to the point of view of another character. There wont be a pause or anything to signify this complete change, so I just got confused. I may just buy the paperback and read it like Sarah suggests. I didnt have a problem with the narrator being more bubbly.. just had a problem with 2 of the main characters having almost identical voices.
I really enjoyed this series! Had to get used to hearing 3rd person b/c most of the books I've been listening to (Southern Vampire Series, Anita Blake, The Hollows Series) were in 1st person. Book was kind of slow at first, but it definitely grew on me! I've recommended it to all my friends that like urban fantasy type books.
