I've read many of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books and had stopped for a bit. I decided on a whim to purchase this audio version. I didn't really expect to like it as much as I did. I was prepared to not like having a man narrate this story and was pleasantly surprised by how much I did like Holter Graham's narration. Overall, this was a very fun listen!
I enjoyed this title more than I thought I would. Carolyn McCormick is an excellent narrator and Chelsea Cain's plot is riveting. The relationship between Archie and Rachel is truly disturbing in that "I just can't turn away" fashion. Definitely I must add series!!!!
I'm still struggling with this book. I knew it might be hit or miss when I bought it but it had enough good reviews to take a chance. Basically, the struggle for me right now is that the characters have not drawn me into the book. I haven't given up completely, but it is close.
I think it would be better in third person. I read a lot of first person narrative but this one reads as a little too self boasting. I am only about 5 chapters into the book and Gin (the Spider) has become just a little bit annoying.
Other's have complained about her accent but I thought it was fine.
I keep hoping that it will be.
The reason that I have given the book 3 stars is that I think the premise of the book has promise (this is the reason I bought it to begin with). Since I am not sure that I will stick with the book to see if I am proved right or wrong, I thought it was only fair that I give it three stars based on the reason for purchase.
