It was a decent amount of time well-spent. The story line was different from other vampire novels as it creates a spin in vampire society. Even immortality and strength is not imprevious to bigotry and casts systems.
This was my first Kendra Leigh Castle book, I am always ready for a good series to begin. I am looking forward to continuing with this one.
No never heard Peter Bradbury's narration but he gave each character life which is good.
I may depending on the actors seems like it would make a better TV series. Puts me in mind of V with a little Xena the Princess Warrior.
Good story will clean wholesome romance. The story was predictable but in the way a book lover enjoys.
I think I enjoyed reading about the orphan kids more than anything else and their relationship with Kat and Charles.
The book felt more like a contemporary romance rather than a good PNR. The narration was fine but I think the audio editing was poor I kept hearing echoes
This book was just delicious I loved it....I was a little leery considering the multiple husbands but I think author did a very good job.
The love scenes were wonderfully erotic but well place in the storyline. this is important to stay because I am always with the whole male/male thing it's not necessarily my thing. But again it actually fits with the storyline considering there on a planet that is male-dominated that the females of their races are so scarce so it makes sense that you would have relationships the way the author set them up.
I also love that more more authors are showing that diversity actually does exist even in fairytales. So if we get invaded by an alien planet and need to provide brides the a warrior race of males, the brides are going to be all kinds of shapes, colors and nationalities and not simply perfect Barbie doll girls.
I would say my negative is the characters are so young the males are 200 and 300 years old sometimes even older so to have them bonded to women who were barely 21 does not seem to be very realistic. I think the story would be more involved more in depth with older female characters hopefully the series will have some.
I enjoyed the story and the slow romance though that was not the main topic. I did have trouble understanding how these two seemed a little slow on the up take of the investigation. I understand it was their first case but how naive can one be when the studied for 10 years.
They are legal magic users trained by the coalition to up hold the magic laws. For which they are trained from teenagers. To me they still seemed too young to be on assignment together. One would think the coalition would assign a rookie and expert together on first assignments. Both of characters stumble their way threw the investigation and cut many cuts and bruises as a result.
I love Kresley Cole particularly this series. While I trial enjoyed Trehen I must says I was very disappointed with Bettina. She was very weak, spoiled, bratty and too indecisive for me.
Most of Kresley's female characters are strong warriors but have a vulnerability that keeps allows you to recognize femininity.
Bettina came off as just weak whom did not understand either her own feelings nor of those she claimed to love... Too selfish and naive to be a main character of the Lore
I love this author provides diverse women with strength .... Each character even the bad guys you tends to draw one in... I love this series
Not bad strong storyline. Good characters and descriptive. I am new to the alien things but I'm liking them. The narration was tolerable. The background noise threw me off. It did not really bring quality to the book. The male narrator I found poor on his reading. He made most of the men sound as though the had speak impediments.
I really loved the strength of the Heroine in this story. She had a wisdom and kindness of found endearing. The author in my opinion made a mistake as casting her as a 24 yr old. The character was much too mature for 24. While being a widowed mother of 2 of a man who did of cancer will age you. It does not make you able to become a nurturing Queen of a Alien race of males able to rule with assertion and diplomacy. That was people willing to follow you rule. That comes with age and experience. So 24 is a little unbelievable for me. Plus the narration leads you to think the heroine is in her mid to late 30's.
I am not certain if it was the storyline or narrator. The book was tolerable nothing too exciting but not bad either. I believe a stronger narrator would have made this better. I think I will try reading instead of listening unless they change narrators.
I like that these hot me fall what other would consider less then perfect.
I really like Kristen Ashley this just so loooong and drawn out and boring. It was a book about nothing.
I am not sure if we we're suppose to be following the diamond heist or murder or finding missing people or finally getting the boy she loves.
This was just all over the place, I could not get down with the immature 30 something girl scared to grow up.
Narration was good. I was just tired of listening to nothing. Book could have been wrapped up in 6 hrs instead of 13. It felt like I had repeat on over and over again.
Ok i really enjoyed the story. I was fairytale..ish. Sort of Cinderella meets Captain Hooks Mersey bad of pirates.
I am a little old for this genre but a cut story is a cute story. I see 21 and 26 year olds acting like this. Particularly when one is sheltered and the other a rich spoiled rocker cynic. A more mature confident women would have busted some heads and taken names later. Sigh... our Heroine was a shy naive girl wall flower. The story worked as a made for movie romance. Mainstream but solid, No real suspense easy to call... Poor never been touched wallflower meets sexy as sin rich rocker. Rocker wants her cause she is sooo different from the Groupies who only want his money and fame. Wallflower get a wake up call in the real world of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, runs scared. Few days of self discovery for the rocker. He decides he want her, writes a song just for her, she cries all is forgiven HEA.
I am a sucker for a simple love story so this worked. Narrator did a decent job so I got my book fix.
Lots of mixed reviews for this book, however I am a realist romantic, rather than a fairytale HEA romantic. So this book gave me what l like in a Romance. Imperfect characters just enough conflict and put your big girl pants on admitting what you want.
This book worked for me, I personally enjoyed The take it slow and let's be friends teasing storyline. There something about sexual tension in characters that make a nice romantic release. I liked that the characters established a relationship as friends prior to them prior to jumping in the sack with one another.
And oh my the slapstick comedy in this book had me cracking up. The cat attacks were too funny.
