The audiobook was off-the-charts excellent! The 2 new narrators are amazing. They each give very distinct voices to all the characters (so you can always tell who is talking), full of emotion & truly bring them to life. It's like a live performance privately done for you. Unlike the prior female narrator, the men are now virile & sexy, & Mac now actually speaks at a believable pace (not so slow it annoys you) & with a real sounding southern accent not some overdone "thang" from a highschool play. The terrifying chainsaw voice for the Dark Book will scare you to your core! The interplay of the characters & timing of the actors is intense.
BTW, some reviewers on here have wrongfully critiqued the new female reader for mispronouncing Rowena's name or pronouncing it two different ways in the audio. The author specifically directed her in the pronunciations of "Rowena" & Ms. Ross says it right! The reason it varies at times is because the character Mac does mispronounce it at times, it's part of the plot.
As for the plot, (I'll try to write this generally without any plot spoilers, but it'll be harder to explain) I must be honest & say that I was frustrated & a lil disappointed with this book. I have to agree with others who have said this series should have been at most a 3 or 4 book series for solid content. There was little plot development this time. Unlike past books, this one is such an excerpt that you probably cannot just pick it up & read it as a stand alone without having read the others. You'd be totally lost. Frankly, even if you read the others, this one is so fantastical & jumps about, it's still a bit confusing. While I have been totally enjoying & loving the Fever series...after waiting so long for this book & knowing it'll be a year or more till the next, this book wasn't worth the wait.
