Awful couldn't get through first 45 minutes. Three words described x, then she uses seven. Repetitive writing needs edit. Story awful. Narrator marginal. Female characters ok. Male and accents are awful. Dialog so bad no chance.
This book takes the series on a downhill slope. An Amazon reviewer compared the story to the Perils of Pauline. I think the metaphor is a good one. If you are on the borderline with this series, skip this installment. Hopefully, the next one will be better.
For the Audible edition, the accent of the male Texican characters is awful. For some reason, it seems that the producers decided to increase the volume any time a Texican spoke. Folks - making it louder won't make it better.
I have enjoyed this narrator is the past. Her tone is easy to listen to and her English accent is lovely.
Nurse practioner loses patient but saves dragon baby and is kidnapped/rescued by uber male dragon. Very similar to IAD premise, plot, and characters. Little character development. OK if you don't mind the more than obvious similarities and can't find anything else. Narrator did a good job not super, but not bad and he didn't have much to work with
Georgia - succubs/demon can not have a normal relationship because every time she kisses some one, his life gets shorter. She spends a lot of time pushing people who love her away, trying to protect them. She is in a no win situation, which makes her internal strife a little ridiculous/despairing. A dammed soul. The writing was interesting, but with no way out, I don't think I need to continue. This story has multiple boyfriends - Seth, the writer. Roman the bast demon. Doug the coworker. She has sex with her boss to satifsy the succubus hunger. Kind of gross -- the overall downer brings it to a 3. Narrator is good.
Good characters, interesting world, ok plot. Con. Plot moved slowly as author spent inordinate amount of time describing dirigible and various mechanicals. More story moving and less description would have gotten 5 stars. Narrator was very good, but toward the end of the book she seemed to give a character a lisp that wasn't there to start....or I didn't notice. The character is better without the lisp
Not bad. Plot moved along most of the time. Classic romance writing. Good narrAtor. Good for 4.95. Becky is orphan chattel. Threatened by Russian prince cousin. Hero is a whoring angel rake gambler who wins back her house. Modern attitudes in the 1800s
Siena fire, hawk. Slow repetitive, liked the characters but don't care enough to continue. Cover art is the worst ever
Black/white witch with pixie and vampire sidekicks. The only thing more boring than sitting in an airport is reading about fictional characters sitting in an airport. The author actually wrote paragraphs about standing in line to pick up conference tickets. The dialog is "Shut up" - "get out" "Why" "I can't tell you" if you can't tell me why mention it Couldn't get through to the end.
Narrator is OK. Not that great - Wisconsin/ Jersey - might be OK in another series.
The heroine's "super power" is to get debilitating cluster migraines when evil lurks and has to be rescued by a hero with baggage. The premise of the story has interesting points. The writing tends to be repetitive and could really use a good edit. The narrator was the only reason I could get through the whole book.
The heroinne doesn't scare easy and doesn't fall apart. Of course, she does need to be rescued. NIce hero. Narrator was fine -
