As a huge fan of "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" series by JR Ward, and Gena Showalters "Lords of the Underworld" series, I like my romances to be hot. Very hot. I was not Disappointed with "Dark Victory". The story was captivating, and the characters interesting. The romance scenes were hot as well, although one of my few complaints would be that the author doesn't spend enough time describing the actual deed itself. none the less, I found it very sexy and satisfying. The narrator does an excellent job as well. I think it is very hard to find a decent narrator for these types of books. Most of them come off annoying. but She did a very good job. I would listen to her again anytime. The only other real downfall of this book is that Ms. Joyce gets a little repetitive in her vocabulary choices. I think she must have said, "Tabby cried out," and "He/she was incredulous". about eight dozen times. but all and all, this was a great listen, and I will be looking for more by this author and narrator, hopefully in the same series.
I love the demons of the underworld series, but I am having trouble with this one.. very little steam and the narrator talks like a valley girl impersonating captain Kirk. Badly. Even if the plot line had been fabulous, I don't think I would buy anything narrated by Jessica Almasy again. I want to poke my eardrums out..
