I wished so much Kathleen Godwin continued narrating the second book. For the most part, I found narration tolerable by Kitty Hendrix (there are plenty narrators that are so much worse), however, I found almost impossible to listen to sex scenes…. I highly recommend to get a book instead. I would buy this book again with a different narrator.
I enjoy the series very much! However, I feel very disappointed by a narrator's lack of respect for Russian language. There are maybe 10 words in the whole book relating to Russian folklore, since Kate has Russian ancestors. Every one of them is pronounce in such bad way, I can’t even recognize the words. I actually feel insulted. I realized, it is silly to have such strong emotions, due to the genre of the book… But at the same time, I expect a little of homework and a due diligence from a professional.
I really don't understand the business decision to use different narrators for the books in the same series with the same main characters. This is just an incompetence at its core.
I really liked the first narrator, the next two narrators are just absolutely horrible. I had to turn off Emily Durante narrating Tairen Souls and lost three credits, I just can't stomach her narration. And now this... Unfortunately, I have to put on my list "Do not buy" another book narrated by Ms. Durante.
I don't think Ms. Zaires had enough material for three books. A second and a third book was a huge stretch just to make a book. I did not have very high expectations due to genre of this category, but a combination of a poor story which was mostly a repetition of the first book with a bad narration made me regretting spending my credit.
I just could not enjoy this book, either the story or the narration… A sexy male warrior with a very feminine behavior just doesn’t sit right with me. I enjoy gay relationships just as much as straight relationships in the book as long as they behave as they are presented. I like male warrior behave as a male regardless of his sexual preferences. Obviously, this is just my personal preference. I regret spending my credit on this book.
This is my first book by Maya Banks. I can see why so many women like this book. However, it is way to cheesy for me. I usually don't mind cheesy romance novels as long as they are paranormal and sci-fi.
Kirsten Potter is absolutely fantastic, as usual.
The book was broken into three parts and sold as three different books. Tough, I enjoyed the story, it most definitely NOT worth 3 credits. One credit yes, but not three…. I feel a little cheated.
Theresa Plummer is a fantastic narrator. I am adding her to my favorite narrators list to watch out for.
Even though Kalen and Mackenzie annoyed me to death, I still managed to enjoy this book. Kalen seems not being able to grow up and Mackenzie behaves like uneducated young lady, especially considering that she supposed to be a shrink... I was hoping for more in this in this book. I doubt I will listen it again, but I definitely do not regret spending a credit.
I can't believe I stayed away from these series for so long. I never watched the show either. I found the story very light and perfect for multitasking. :) I am looking forward to the rest of the books. Narration by Johanna Parker is just perfect. I enjoyed very much, even narration of male characters. It was definitely worth my credit.
The narrator is so bad, that I don’t even know if the reason for this is boring story… I struggled for three hours and sadly, I am turning the audio book off. I did not decide yet if I am getting ebook. I might start listening some other books before I consider buying ebooks for Tairen Soul series. I wish Amy Cardy (a second narrator) continued, she is not the best for these series either, but Amy Cardy was tolerable for me. I did not care for the first narrator either. I found Emily Durante to be worse than Stephanie Riggio, though I see that a lot of people have a different opinion. Oh well… I was looking forward so much to these series.
I agree with Ms. Readsalot, this book is similar to the first one. I love it anyway. Narration is absolutely perfect. I can't wait for the next book. I hope it will not take very long.
