It just doesn't work for a woman to narrate a book with tough men in it like this series. It makes them sound creepy instead of masculine. That being said..the book was very good. Loved the story and would recommend it.
I couldn't even get through the first hour of this book unfortunately....only because of the narrator. She was horrible....went so fast and with no expression in her voice that I couldn't even follow what she was saying. I had no idea what was going on in the story so I turned it off and bought a different book. Too bad.......Somebody...please Somebody...listen to these narrators and determine if they are worth the money of an audiobook!!! Bad Bad Bad.
This narrator was so annoying...she whispered the entire book!!! The scottish accents were pitiful and the male voices sounded like 6 year old children. Come on....these were highland warriors...that is until they spoke!! Awful...just awful. Men should narrate Highlander voices and stories!! It is a shame...
It might be just me but, I started this book over twice trying to figure out who was who. There were too many characters all at once, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, chaperones, etc. I never got to figure out who the main two characters were until well into the book. For me the characters were just not likeable. That could have been the narrator's fault. Sorry...and I was really looking forward to a new Scottish series. :(
I bought this from the sale page and didn't listen to it for a few weeks...sorry I didn't!!! This book was surprisingly good with strong female characters and a few twists from the normal. Worth the listen!!
I passed this book by a few times and then took a chance....WOW...I am so glad I did. Loved the story...the characters...and the narrator!!! Highly recommend this to anyone!!
Maya has done it again and again and again... Maya Banks can't write these books fast enough for me!! I love the characters and the dialogue is just as if I am part of the conversation....very real-life! Last but, by no means least, THANK YOU ...THANK YOU...THANK YOU for having a male narrator. I cannot listen to another audiobook with a female voice trying to do men's voices who are supposed to be burly and masculine!! They always sound like drag queens to me...I just can't get involved in the story like that. Thank you Maya...KEEP WRITING THESE BOOKS AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!
I was quite bored throughout the entire book. Even the narrators got on my nerves by the end. Did not enjoy.
No one writes a romance novel like Maya Banks...just the right amount of romance, love, tense moments and steam. Love the characters she creates. LOVE THE FACT THAT A MAN DOES THE NARRATION. A woman just cannot do a man's voice...a man who is supposed to be masculine and passionate. When a woman does the voices...they sound like something from the Wizard of Oz. Thank you Maya...and please we need more of your books in audio....FAST!!!!!
Loved this book...Maya Banks does it again. Where oh where is the third book on audio??? Please hurry hurry hurry....I just know it is going to be Ash's turn!!
I am half way through listening to this book...they should take her "Narration Card" away indefinately!!! She was just horrible. I can hardly finish listening to these phony "Valley Girl" voices!!
