What a pleasant surprise! Not exactly your typical dragon story. Started off a bit slow, but not terrible. And, it wasn't what I expected, but it was surprisingly well done. Good enough to keep my mind engaged to see what would happen next. Narrator was a bit on the nasal side, but it didn't bother me too too much. I felt the plot was very well thought out. I do wonder if another part of this trilogy will be written in my lifetime. Since this was off to a good start, I'd give the second book a listen.
Not very good. Failed to carry the story thru in several places. Not a good fantasy book. Not a good romance book. Not a good fairy tale. So what the fairy flip was that? I struggled thru but it was so slow. I was ready to ditch by the 2nd chapter.
I had no ideal I would be lost, if I didn't buy the first book. So I have to get it before I can honestly decide whether this is good or not. The narrator's voice is so squeaky, I'm not sure I can stand it. At first I thought I was listening to a teenage boy whose voice was changing, but no I think that a girl, just a really, really nasal and squeaky voice. This one may be going back . . .
This series is running out of steam. This one wasn't so good. I guess the storyline is hard to stretch or something. I think the narrator's okay, but the get up and go has got up and went.
Not what I thought or expected. I might stick it out through the two sequels, I might not. Not sure. The story line was a bit disturbing, but Nick Podehl is a great narrator.
Great book! I fully recommend. Not like anything out there. And that's why its so cool and interesting. Brandon always delivers. Well thought out and I'll be waiting for the next one, if there is one.
The last one, Jane was so weak and out of the norm, I thought I'd never get another book. I don't listen because Jane is a crybaby, I listen because Jane kicks butt and laughs about it. All the sniveling last book just wasn't the character I'd grown to love. But, I'm glad I did. Jane was more like herself this time. Back to being the femme fatal I like to read about. Hooray!
I missed really missed that line Gin says about someone "needed to get dead in a hurry". I don't recall that in this book. But it always makes me laugh in the other ones. The voice actress has the perfect accent for the characters in the book. I know many people who have that accent, so it is very believable. And reminds me of people I know. After seeing how choppy and strange a great audio book series becomes when the author suddenly decides to switches narrators, I'd definitely quit reading this if Lauren Fortgang wasn't reading it anymore. To date I've quit buying two series because I couldn't stand the switch.
Pretty terrific follow-up to the beginning. Some dead time in the middle of the book. By dead time I mean I could tell the author padded the book a bit to drag out the story, but I suffered thru that to see what would happen with the guys. The characters are interesting enough to keep me tuned in. The end was surprising enough to make me rush to buy book 3. Not quite what I thought would happen by the end of the book. Thumbs up for non-predictability.
The beginning started out okay. But the farther I got into the book, the more ridiculous it became. An interesting concept, taken way, way too far. I'm definitely sending this one back. Great narrator, but she couldn't help this book.
Fell apart from the middle to the end. Could have been great, just didn't make it. Don't know what else to say. Save your money.
