Tough question. I read the first part of the book, but ended up buying the audio one simply because I don't have time to sit down and read. The writing for the story is outstanding, but the narrator brings a little something extra to it.
There was a part in the story where Pounce brakes the rules. No spoilers, but I cried a little bit at that part.
Her voices. It is easy to tell who the voices belong to. Some narrators just have male and female voices and don't change it up for each characters tone or personality. Susan did it was flare and it was a pleasure to listen to.
I loved this book. I am a huge fan of Tamora Peirce and this book has to be one of her best ones yet!
I have listen to a few of Kresley Cole's novels in the past and found this one to be the best by far. I almost didn't buy this one just because there were some themes in the previous novels I thought were overdone. This one had a lot more depth and character plot than previous ones and I found myself enjoying it a lot.
The few plot twists. Normally I can predict the future of novels, but when I get a surprise, I really like them.
That's a hard one to answer. I guess the one where the two main characters were out jogging. I am not sure what about that made it really stick to me. Mostly because no one else in the series really seems that athletic and it was nice to see.
Uh... expect the unexpected?
It was a good book. If anyone is looking for a novel to curl up with and listen to while you knit or whatnot this would be it.
Maybe one of my girlfriends that would like a comical romance novel. Most of my friends like to read books such as Wheel of Time or anything by Brandon Sanderson, so they tend to think they are above romance novels.
I felt the relationship was a little too rushed. I haven't met a couple that feel in love in a month and proposed and seen it last. If maybe it happened after a few years, or he just came back and said he wanted to be with her, I would be ok with that.
I thought she did an awesome job and it really allowed me to enjoy the story fully.
I laughed a lot. It was really a witty book that I enjoyed.
I spent the first two hours basically listening to "Americans are mislead by the social media about what is healthy and my research shows that having high animal based diets leads to health issues later in life" rephrased a few hundred times.
Now, I am not saying that the book doesn't have some interesting points or facts about it, because it does. Did I decide to become a Vegan after reading this? Well, no. Because the thing I was really interested in was the actually study that is mostly skimmed over.
This was not what I was expecting at all. After reading the short summery for the book, I thought it was just going to be a saucy southern romance novel, which I was what I was looking for. Then I find out that Caleb is a vampire? A cowboy vampire? And the only way Allie agrees to go along with Caleb is if he gives her an orgasm? I had to stop the book and go back and reread the review because I thought I clicked on the wrong one only to find the rest of the summery for the book on the books main page. Regardless, the story was terrible, I hated Allie as she only sounded like whine teenager that wanted sex. I wouldn't even recycle this book if I had it in my hands. I would just burn it and never think about it again.
I have listened to her before, and she does awesome in other books. Her performance in this one was really disappointing. I blame the director and not her though.
I was able to delete it from my phone and computer. That's a redeeming quality, right?
I feel completely mislead and I have no idea how this book got such a high rating. Part of me thinks the author got a bunch of her friends to say nice things about the book so people like me will lose a credit to find out it's trash. After this book, I am going to read every review before I buy something now as the overall rating on some books just seems like miscalculated result.
I am a big fan of Phil Gigante and kept trying to give this book a shot, but the whole thing with grown men lusting after a pre-teen was a huge turn off for me. Actually, anything about Dani was a big turn off for me. Anything else done by Phil I'll listen to, but not this.
I don't even think this book is in the proper genre. It is suppose to be a romance novel, but it really reads more like young adult fiction. Sure, there are a few saucy details now and then, but nothing that I would honestly think belongs to the romance section.
The narrators are the only reason I listened to as much of the book as I did. They are very talented folks and I kept hoping that the story would get better if I just stuck with it, but it never happened.
Dani. I know the story is about Dani and the work she is doing, but she isn't what I was expecting or even having to deal with a teenager giving the reader life lessons about the world. I don't think anyone wants to listen to a teenager act all knowing about things they are just discovering. Not to mention that I am really not into pedophilia. Age difference is a nice plot twist, but not when one of the characters is 14.
I really like Karen Moning's work and Phil's performance, but this book just isn't for me.
How about some better writing? I feel like I waste both my money and my time with this book/story. There was no growth and it was just a constant inner monologue about some air heads attempt to adjust to a BDSM relationship that she isn't even really interested in doing. Actually, there are so many things wrong with this story that I can't even list it all here. Overall, the story was terrible, the writing was horrid and the pace was so painfully slow that I wanted to claw out my eyes.
I have, and she is a good story teller. Why they decided to make her sound like a clueless ditz in this story is beyond me. Honestly, it was a major turn off. I cannot think of a single person that wants to listen to the inner monologue of an airhead. Especially when there is no growth of the character at all.
Yes. So long as it is not part of this 50 shades set.
All of it.
Save your money. Don't buy this~!
This is such a well written book and was very easy to get into from the start. I greatly enjoyed it and couldn't stop listening to it when I started.
The princess was my favorite because of the character development with her. Plue there are so many unknowns with her that it makes her very intriguing.
When Adele and Greyfriar were in the library looking over the vampire's collection of books
When the gift was deliver to the Adele at the end was my favorite. It actually brought tears to my eyes.
Just freaken awesome
I greatly enjoyed the pacing of the story, the lore in it and how well everything flowed together. Although, the dog had me laughing in spots where I normally wouldn't have laughed at all.
No, this was the first time I heard him. I took the time to listen to another book he narrated and I found I liked this one more simply because of character he was portraying, but he always does a fantastic job as a story teller.
The ending when they were bringing fresh soil to Tony Cabin was something that was very touching to me. Only because of Oberon's comment about how it was going to take a long time to fix the area and how Atticus agreed, but was still willing to do it.
Just a wonderful fun book. I would recommend it to everyone.
