Story was not what I expected. More a political battle between two communes/ cult that supposedly have big clout over the world. The chemistry between the two started off hot but there was no other action. The sparks were there, but I like more action between the sheets. The writing was good the story original but too short, I believe the story could have been extended for a better book. I didn't realize it was the beginning of a series until after I had listened to it, so I will be getting the rest. Narration was good. Defiantly worth the price.
If you are a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed. With romance, action, demon/angel lore, friendship, humor, and even some emotional drama this book is great. Man the cover is sexy, makes me drool. Both the hero and heroine are tarnished and that's part of what I love about them. There are lots of appearances from past characters and it made me want to read the whole series over again.
It has been over a year since I read Reaver, I had a bit of a time remembering all the little details of this series and I wish that I had taken the time to reread the other books again. I do recommend reading Larissa Ione's other books starting with the Demonica, then the Horseman series before reading this because there is a lot of references to the previous books in this series.
Will this be the final book for the Demonica/Horseman series? Probably, but my hopes are for more. According to the beginning of this book Larissa Ione doesn't know for sure yet either. At the end of the book there is an epilogue put on the authors website "larissaione.com/blog/not-the-end." I haven't had the chance to read it yet but hopefully it is not the end of the series. Narrator does a pretty good job.
If you are looking for a new series after this one, I recommend reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Series. This book reminded me of the Dark Hunter series a bit.
A light romance and although far from my favorite it was an easy listen. The book was a bit more of the mafia genre than I usually like, which is just not my taste. Overall I liked the heroine but she was sometimes a bit of a rag. Hero seemed to perfect to be true, but since this is fiction he was scrumptious Count. I did enjoy this book even with its minor faults. I would read another book from this author if there was a sale, but probably not if I had to pay full price or a credit. Narrator was good, I have always enjoyed her work.
This book is fun and full of adventure. I just love this series. I started out listening to this series with my 11 year old son. Since I listen to books so much faster than him I went ahead of him and started reading the rest of these by myself. Since I enjoyed these stories I have no problem listening to them again with him. This book had a new character in that reminded me of a Professor Gilderoy Lockhart from Harry Potter, which made me laugh. As usual there is doom coming for the folks on the Island of Burk and we get to go on the adventure with Hiccup and his friends to save everyone. The narrator is excellent and I would gladly listen to anything he narrated.
Another winner from Ilona Andrews, I enjoyed William and Cerise's story. There are so many great things I liked about this book such as the characters, the magic, the passion, the humor, the adventure, and a lot of monsters around in the story. I was glad that William got his woman, because he was just too sweet not to have one. Cerise was a kick ass woman that was strong enough to deal with William and his faults. I loved the back woods hillbilly style of Cerise, her family and where they lived. There was a few times I was a little confused on the details of the story but only because I think the authors tried to jam too many side characters into the story. Narrator does a good job.
Supernatural in order on Audible playlist
1. 4 stars. Vampire Fight Club by Larissa Ione, book 5.5 in the Demonica series. A good addition to the Demonica/Horseman series. I think that it could have easily been a full length story. Way better than her other short story that was written. 3 hours 1 min.
2. 3 stars. Darkness Eternal by Alexandria Ivy, book 7.5 in the Guardians of Eternity series. Story was okay but I'm not a huge fan of this series and after reading book one I gave up this author. 3 hours 8 mins.
3. 3.5 stars. Kane by Jacquelyn Frank, book 1.5 in the Nightwalker series. This book will make a lot more sense if book 1, Jacob is read first. Of course this mostly took place in a bed so it wasn't that exciting. But good for hot sex. 2 hours 39 mins.
4. 4.5 stars. Dragon on Top by GA Aikens, book 4.5? in Dragon Kin series. I really liked this book and I wish that Audible would get the entire series. I have read all of Shelly Laurenston aka GA Aikens, Pride Series and have enjoyed it and I know I would enjoy the rest of the Dragon Kin series. 4 hours 48 mins.
Not my favorite narrator. Justine Eyre has a slight smokers voice but I didn't mind her too much.
I wasn't a big fan of the first book Bound by Night, I thought the series may have potential so I went ahead and purchased this one. Then I found myself passing this book over for others, I had no real desire to see if this book was better than the first. Which is why it took me a while to listen to it. Luckily this book is better than the first, although still not as good as the Demonica/Horseman series. In the last book the biggest factor that bugged me was the characters, I didn't really like them. In this book I liked Hunter and Aylin much better and I was interested in how their future would turn out. I will be giving this series another shot if Larissa Ione writes another, but my hopes are for more books in the Demonica/Horseman series to be written. If you liked the first book then get this book, but if you are not a fan then this book is more of the same. Narrator was okay, but luckily for me not all narrators are a make it or break it deal.
A really good light paranormal romance, something that made my day at work just fly by. I bought this book because Jennifer Crusie wrote it even though I wasn't sure about the story, it didn't really sound like the type of book I would like at first. I don't usually like romances where the hero and heroine have been together then broke up and then get back together. Fortunately their romance was more of a side story. The real story was Andy and the kids learning to trust each other and the ghost story haunting the house. There was also Jennifer Crusie's trade mark crazy characters added to the book that made this a fun story. Narrator does a really good job.
This fantasy is the adventure of King Boris trying to separate his spirit from his body so he can go to heaven. I was expecting the story to be funny and it was mildly amusing at parts but in no way as funny as Christopher Moore whom this book was compared to. Overall the writing is very vivid and I can picture the events that take place very clearly. Unfortunately I'm a character driven reader and I did not like King Boris. Yes he has the typical Middle Ages mentality but I thought he was an Ass, but admittedly a very well written one. The writing itself was good and I liked the adventure behind the man so I finished the book. I purchased this with Whispersync and for a few bucks it wasn't too bad. Phil Gigante was good, I have always enjoyed his voice.
A mediocre book, I couldn't really get into the story, it was a bit slow and didn't keep my attention well. There wasn't much build up for the characters either. I felt like this book skipped the getting to know you part and went right in for the "I know you better than you know yourself" story line. So to me the romance was rushed and I felt like the relationship was missing that spark because they might have felt it but I surely didn't. Another thing that annoyed me was that the supposedly super sweet Dante often called Abby a shrew, a nag, ill-tempered or something similar but at the same time was sooooo fascinated with her. I just didn't get why because she was all of those things. I rolled my eyes every time he called her lover, it was just lame sounding. There was also a weird cadence to the story where something would happen and then later they would talk about it as if it hadn't happened yet. I thought it would have been better to bring it up at the time. Plus Abby would question things that made her sound ignorant of everything, but when she got the answer she would question it again making her sound like she knows better. The narrator was a bit monotone but overall she wasn't too bad. I won't be continuing with this series.
At last the long awaited book of Torin and in the spirit of LOU it rocks. This book is way better than the last book and was written more like the earlier books in this series. At the end of the last book I was afraid that the girl for Torin wasn't going to be the right woman for Torin, but that isn't the woman Torin ends up with. The Red Queen fits Torin perfectly, but not to worry their romance did not start off without a struggle. I liked Keeleycael immensely she is spunky and full of life. It is refreshing to see someone not afraid of Disease, even if she keeps getting burned by him. As always I'm a fan of LOU series and this book is no exception. I am impatiently awaiting Cameo and Lazarus story, I think there will be fireworks in that story. My favorite book is still Anya's and Lucien's book. Narrator as always does an excellent job with his sexy voice.
