Clever, witty, sexy and fun - and surprising. totally an enjoyable read - then had to follow the series - loved it!
Started out interesting but fell flat after the first half of the book. Nice narration by Sue Pitkin but even she could not save this story overall. After hearing the expression "God's Teeth!" for the 30th time, I almost had to jump to a different book. Not recommended unless you happen to enjoy a very slow story. If you enjoy historical romance read Diana Gabaldon and start with Outlander - simply amazing.
Some of the best dialogue in a romance I have ever read - a terrific story line and all wrapped up in a touching romance. This is a must read and an all time favorite!
Susannah spins an intriguing tale with strong character development that is highly entertaining. Also, the narrator, Angela Dawe, does an excellent job with the range of people. Living in a world where most humans have been vaccinated against a pandemic, it turns out that this is fatal for vampires. To answer this challenge, one vampire creates a utopia in Penton, AL with unvaccinated humans that he rescues from across the country and supports them through rehabs and other limiting life situations, then gives them the option to live in a small town with a positive supported community in exchange for blood.Top this off with a vampire national government that does not like this idea and other vampires that are attracted to building the community you have intrigue a strong love story all woven into a fast paced fun story. worth a credit? Totally!
Yes, there are a good bit of erotic scenes but is weaved as a relevant part of the story so if you are not comfortable with this then this story is not for you. But Laurell weaves a fantastic story - vivid characters come alive with very creative characters and scenes and the narrator totally brings it home. I could barely put it down. A really fun listen for P/R fans - totally worth a credit!
Liked the story a good bit but in a way, I now wish I had read it. The reader, Coleen Marlo, is very talented and solid however her accent of a Scotsman is truly wanting. It just does not work. I had to stop a few times slightly annoyed as Coleen goes totally out of character a good number of times and the editors missed a lot of mistakes where she goes out of accent and just marginally ok. Half the fun of Audible for me is to listen to the talented theatrics of a dynamic reader. If that is important to you - suggest you read this one. Also, if you adore great readers try Roslyn Landor(reading Lisa Kleypas books or others) or Jim Frangione (black dagger brotherhood series - outstanding) - just no, no no comparison.
Kerrelyn is very talented - some fun stories - would love to hear her books with another reader. Coleen is too - just not for a sexy Scotsman.
well, it was not even close. In fact, could not get through it. wish I adored it - was not worth my credit but had to find out.
Dont think twice - download it - worth 2 credits but its only one! Run, don't walk!
At first it took me a few minutes to give the moderator a chance. His voice is so distinctive and usually I prefer women readers. But Jim Frangione was simply incredible once I adjusted a bit to the style. The story is addictive. I have recommended this story to 9 friends and ALL of them adored it - and we are totally enjoying talking about the series together. Its easy to fall in love with the characters, the women are strong or are learning fast and the dialogue is quite funny and fun. Sexy, funny and a great story - what's not to love? Cannot wait till the next one - not coming out till March of 2013 - its in the calendar!
Start with the first one - read them in order - so much richer that way. Once you start - WARNING --- you will be totally hooked! If you like Jeanine Frost you will ADORE this series.
