Although a bit predictable, a very entertaining read-- and I shed real tears, too. MacLeod Andrews did a fantastic job with the narration; one of the best I've heard in a while.
I love SEP books and have listened to all of them. This latest one was a real struggle for me to finish-- the only reason I did is because of the author's reputation. The mystery was weak, and there was little humor. I only laughed outloud once, which is rare for her books. The story was a challenge for the narrator-- lots of characters and multi-person (puppet) conversations. I felt she did a decent job, but there were some times where it was difficult to follow. If you have never read this author before, do not start with this book.
This series is full of alpha males, steamy sex, suspense and laughter, and this book is the best of the three. Each of the female lead characters have different personalities, but have one thing in common-- attraction to dominant men. It makes for a great listen. The ending was one that I didn't anticipate, and I liked that too. Adam Paul is a good narrator. Well worth the credit, but start at the beginning of the trilogy and listen to them all-- you won't be disappointed.
I probably would have given up on this book after the first five chapters, but I did not have anything else new to listen to. Roger Hampton's wonderful narration helped me through this slow moving story, which I must say, did improve during the second half of the book. Even though I am a big fan of Highland romances, I'm not sure if I will continue with this trilogy.
The long-awaited story of Anders has finally arrived, and it did not disappoint. Immortal Ever After was a little slow in the beginning, but picked up in the middle and ended with an exciting conclusion. The story has a full cast of characters from the previous 17 novels, including a great secondary story with Lucien and Lee. This book did not have as many of the humorous lines that I love in some of her previous books, and I missed that. If you are new to the Argeneau series, I would not start with this book.
Paula Christensen, who has read two other, recent Argeneau editions, does a good job with the female voices, but not so much with the men. This is especially true with the story's subject-- no one does Anders like Kirby Heyborne in The Renegade Hunter.
As an early reviewer of this audiobook, you must know I am a big fan of this series. This book was well worth the preorder.
Not your typical Highland romance, I poured through this book in two days. The relationship between the characters is complex and unpredictable. There is lots of action, in and out of the bedroom. I'm ordering the next book in the series right now.
Loved it--I didn't want this one to end!
Book #17 brings back well-loved characters from earlier books, which is one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much. But don't shy away from this being your first-listen in the Argeneau series. Sands gives a good background summary early on in the book so you won't be in the dark. Then you can go back and start from the beginning.
Paula Christensen did a decent job with the narration of the main characters, less so with the others. It was difficult for me to listen to the voices of Lucian, Armand, Andres, and Bricker without Rick Robertson or Kirby Heyborne narrating. And she pronounced Notte wrong.
Ms. Sands has done it again. Under a Vampire Moon is sassy, steamy and funny. I've listened to all of the series, and this one is one of the best. Kirby Heyborne does his usual fine job of narrating.
But thanks to Lauren Fortgang's excellent narration, I stuck with it. The plot picked up, and I finished it the following day. I am curious on how the saga continues, so I will probably buy Book #2.
