I guess it made it into the erotic section because of the bondage stuff...but this book is TAME by normal bondage standards (assuming there are bondage standards), it was pretty vanilla. I really enjoy books that can bring my emotions through and this book does, I was really angry in parts, cried in others and laughed in others. Lauren Dane is an excellent author and Isabelle Gordon did a great job with the narration.
I am really not sure what to say about this book. I am not sure why it is in erotic (I am sure the publisher/audible does but it escaped me) there were a lot of twists and turns and I totally did not see the last one and for that reason I gave it 4 stars.
Of course ONLY because of the last twist will I have to get the next book. Overall the book is good just odd, I know that doesn't help the prospective listener a lot but that is the best word I can use.
The author does a good job narrating, I usually won't get books where the narrator is the author, so I think that helped with the flow of the book. A standard narrator really could have messed the book up if they didn't know the intent of the author.
With all of that said it was a good book, I have to admit I couldn't listen to it all at once like I usually do but it did keep drawing me back into it so that must say something.
I am anxious to see what other readers have to say about it.....
This was OK. This was my first book by John Norman I know this one is smack dab in the middle of a huge series but I didn't feel lost at all.
I did have a problem with the writing style, the I said she said back and forth got REALLY old. I also felt there was WAY too much description, don't get me wrong you need a good amount but it seems like the author would go off on tangents on descriptions of things that I didn't need to or care to know.
The love scenes, at least by today's standards, was non existent.
The narrator was ok but for the female voices he just sounded like a drag queen (nothing against drag queens) and so I had a hard time listening to the female voices, lucky it is told mostly in first person.
Overall an interesting read that I am not sad I purchased but would not purchase any more from John Norman, it's just not my cup of tea.
I have to say this has to be one of the best in the series. It has me laughing and in the end crying (my kids didn't know what to think). I can't wait for the final book to come to Audible!
This one has lots of hot and heavy sexy situations, twits and turns and a great ending....if you have read ANY in this series you will want to get this one too!
LOVED IT!! J.F. gets better and better, I really don't know what to say, it was fabulous!! I wish she wasn't such a good writer because it makes me pine away for the next one.
I really enjoyed Gena Showalter and Shannon Butcher, Jessica Anderson was OK but I didn't care for Deidre Knight her didn't fit with the others very much.
The first two books were a nice break on the Sci-Fi/Romance, the love scenes were sexy but not trashy, the narrators were OK the one for S.B. has a hard time doing female voices but wasn't bad enough I couldn't deal with it.
If you are in need for good sexy sci/fi then this is a really good distraction from series novels.
This was an interesting read. It is very fast moving and you really do need to keep your attention on the book, there are some hot and steamy sex scenes but overall I thought there was too much going on.
I enjoyed the book but it isn't one that I can see my self listening to again and again like some others.
I really liked this book, it kept me guessing and there are a lot of twists that just sneak up on you. I am surprised this didn't fall into the erotic section as well as romance, I am not complaining but if you don't like sex scenes in your book this is not for you. There are quit a few sex scenes but they don't detract from the overall book, they are the dark Fae after all, the sex just pulls you further into the story.
I can't wait until April for the next one!!
I was nervous at first about this book but took the leap and am happy I did.
This book kept me laughing and guessing the whole way through. I don't want to give anything away I would just like to say that I was VERY pleased with the book, can't wait for the next one and you REALLY should give it a try!
I wish all of my books could be read by Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante, this book is fabulous. I have waited it seems like forever for this book to come out and it does not disappoint!!
It isn't listed as a romance and I can see why but there is still the underlying romantic tension between Mac and Jericho.
There is so much I want to say about this book I don't know where to start so I will just say that this book is definitely worth the money! You will not be disappointed.
I loved this book, I wasn't too happy with the last book in the series but this one puts her back on top!
This book has everything, a great love story with sexy steamy love scenes but in NO way do they take away from the action, and there IS action. The book was never slow and it took turns I did NOT see coming, which was nice.
This is a book that I will listen to again and recommend to friends and family.
