This is my first book by this author. I purchased because it was on the $4.95 sale. I realize that they are attempting to catch the user up with characters from other books in the series, but too much time is dedicated to this task. The "courtship" of the two main characters did not hold my interest. I was surprised as the topic was not a "fluffy" story and normally I would enjoy the depth of topic
Not sure there is one suggestion, I will not read Robyn Carr again based on this book. It was very boring and I had a hard time staying awake through the audible. It felt like it was trying to hard to have depth and it didn't come natural to the author.
The only redeeming quality was the narrator. Therese Plummer does a good job, it was the story that didn't hold interest.
Rush Me is a sweet love story about an unlikely couple. There is nothing too deep or surprising in the story line. I almost turned it off after the first chapter because of the overly perky reading but Allison Parr’s story was entertaining enough to look past the horrible narration.
Jim Dale's narration is the only thing I enjoyed about this book.
There was no plot. I didn't care or feel for any of the many characters in the story. I read the endlessly descriptive book waiting for the promised competition or "story" to begin. If the competition was to be the center of the story or if anything interesting happed at all to warrant all the positive feedback this book gets in review, I must have been asleep. Save your credit.
I normally enjoy Julie Garwood but I found this story incredibly boring. The main character Lyra is a film student and the continued description of her work and the “importance” of her day to day activities wore on me. I found it monotonous.
Do not waste a credit.
Great series. I love Anna and Charles and the Mercy Thompson/ Alpha & Omega worlds. Honestly anything that Patricia Briggs writes I will buy, she is an excellent writer.
Holter Graham is my favorite narrator based on his work on this series. This novella first appeared in "On the prowl" and honestly was the only part of that novel that was worth reading. I was glad when she chose to sell this story individually. Although it is not necessary for you to read Mercy Thompson or this novella before reading Cry Wolf, it does help in understanding the overall plot.
Not very long so I would just buy and save your credit, but definitely worth a purchase.
Veers from the standard romance template and brings a story with heart. I was emotionally invested in this story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great narration by Kirsten Potter. Maya Banks definitely has found her genre with her Highlander novels. Buy this one and listen to it again and again.
Jeanine Front books are my guilty pleasure. I love the fantasy, strong males and complete escapism. I might be in the minority but I prefer the Night Prince series over the Night Huntress series and mainly because Leila is more likeable than Cat.
As with all Jeanine Frost novels, it is not a nice and sweet world but one of betrayal and violence. She does ground the story by keeping the relationship or love between the characters as an absolute.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys modern fantasy, Vamps, magic and wants to escape reality for a few hours.
There is a lot of content in the middle of the book that could have been removed and or edited out. I enjoy the literary references and abundance of characters but there were quite a few added to this second installment that could have been completely removed without affecting the storyline.
Less on the Kit Marlowe storyline.
I loved Discovery of Witches and will be the first to buy the final installment of the All Souls Trilogy when it is released. Overall, I enjoy the world that Deborah Harkness has created and would recommend this series. The writing is clever and witty and the storyline has twists and interesting locations and characters throughout. I especially enjoyed when they were called "home" by Phillipe de Clermont.
The narrator was a good choice. She has a younger voice and her Scottish accents for the supporting characters did not detract but added to story.
The author ropes you in from the very beginning. She had me at the first chapter when tragedy hits the main character Joss and her family. Anyone that has experienced loss of any kind can relate the hazy feeling experienced by the main character and later to the avoidance mechanisms she cultivates to protect herself from hurt.
Definately credit worthy.
