Great series!!!! This is my favorite series. Each book builds on the overall world while keeping you interested in the individual romances. A few of the book were about secondary characters that I didn’t care about at the beginning and absolutely loved by the end. This review applies to the first 9 books in the series.
better writing! I'm Done with Rose Pressey, I can't see how any adult could enjoy these cartoonishly immature characters. They aren't even funny they were just ridiculously unbelievable and for a fantasy book that is saying a lot.
This was quite possibly one of the worst narrations ever. Usually narrators struggle to differentiate one characters voice from another, surprisingly this was not the case here. The narrator did a great job with character voice. The problem here was even worst! Tempo and timbre. She seemed to be yelling at you often, and you could not tell inner monologues from spoken words due to a lack of pausing. Meanwhile character speaking was jittery, with sentences that ran on at times and pauses that seem to be in the middle of a word.
Each character had a place, they were just poorly written.
This story had a great deal of potential, but sadly the writing was just to childish to realize that potential. I hoped it would turn around but at this point I have to recognize that I just don't like Rose Pressey books.
I don't know why this book was in this genre in the first place. Seemed too immature to be anything other than an teen book.
This book made me sad for women, if anything depicted in this book is remotely similar to how women think and behave. The plot was so thin i could barely stand it. I was pissed with myself for even being curious enough to buy it.
it went on and on with no end in sight with little purpose other than to go on and on while also not describing events worth describing.
Maybe, but after this that may be a hard sell.
There were portions of this book that were absolutely engrossing, but those parts were surrounded buy little more than filler. Even the passage of time in this book was a pointless filler. There were some many thing worth writing about that were glossed over, mean while shopping trips were described in useless detail.
This book made me really dislike both protagonists. Darkness was intolerable at a certain point, and Kat seemed more and more like an emotional punching bag even through the end of the book. The surrounding plot was lighter than usual in some areas and moving in others. this book is not about a tortured soul finding love and acceptance, this is about an ass hole finding someone to emotional abuse. Just because he didn't beat her doesn't make it any less abusive. This is sad addition to the series.
I would to see if the writing gets any better. There were so many disconnects that things were difficult to follow at times.
The different spin on Vampires
not a PNR. Oh, and who pronounces Ketchup as "Cats-Up".
Any one of the issues would have allowed this to be a 4 star audio book, but the disconnects in writing and the narration issues caused it to be a 3 at best.
I really enjoyed this book, but there is a big ole "To Be Continued" at the "end" I like to idea of a PNR with the same H/H but "To Be Continued"... that is always a bit of a let down.
Seriously what was the point. I thought I might have missed something worth listening to when I realized I was 85% through the book.
Maybe the narrator thought she was reading for people that don't speak English. Otherwise I have no idea why the narration, particularly men's parts, was so mind numbingly slow.
This book would be great from someone that doesn't mine knowing 90% of the plot and just watching as it unfolds. The writing and characters are well written, but just because the main character refuses to put the puzzle pieces together doesn't mean the reader/listener won't.
If you could promise me the main character would not be so daft about ignoring her surroundings I would listen to another in this series. There is so much potential here.
Alex, because at least he seemed to be able to think past what was 2 inches in front of him.
A strong heroin with her head in the sand. What a waste, to be quick witted and woefully ignorant.
More story and Character development. Less focus on the physical parts of budding relationships.
Write a book for adults story not just "adult" themes. The Story had potential, a lot of potential but the all the focus was on the physical and there was little attention to the actual Story line.
They all had a good start, but they didn't grow they jump from one childish extreme to another
