This book was one of my favorites in the series.
Roarke finally learns the entire back story with his mother and father, and it was written so beautifully that you wanted to reach into the book and give him a hug. I loved how Eve reacted as well, it was all so natural.
You can tell that Eve and Roarke are both growing in their marriage.
As for the murder, I thought the perpetrator came out of nowhere, though it was interesting to see a killer who really, truly thought he was doing something okay. He wasn't mean about it, just crazy. The action at the end really had me holding my breath, but of course everything turns out alright.
P.S. :Love the narrator! Susan IS the voice of Eve to me.
Brandon Sanderson is rapidly becomming one of my favorite authors. His books are magnificent; well now, even his novellas are wonderful. Both this book and Legion are worth listening too, they have great plot, great characters, and are packed with emotion.
You know when a story makes your heart hurt, it is one of the greats. I dearly felt it when one of the characters died; couldn't believe it in fact. Wanted to wrench out my ipod and crush it. But, the plan was so very brilliant...
a wonderful book, overall. Not sure if I can handle the second. I loved the magical system, loved the narrator. Love brandon sanderson in general.
Worth a listen, definitely.
Not as good as the second book, in my opinion. It was alright for a romance novel, though the plot was easily predictable. For a story about rock stars, it did rock. Was far more honest about the lifestyle than all the glammar others show. I will continue to listen to the other books in the story, and book 2 outshines this one by leaps and bounds.
Very disturbing, the torture scenes. And the backstory of the victim made me want him dead even more, for being so selfish. I loved the ending, however, and how things worked out.
This is one in this story I will be listening too over and over again, ironically because of the tension between Eve and Roarke. And that punch at the end? Go Dallas!!
Though short, I enjoyed this one. How some of the characters reacted with garlic made me die laughing.
The worst thing about this story was that it ended! I could have listening for another few hours, hearing more of how everything was tied up. I got so attached to the characters and their struggles, that is was hard to let them go.
Even now, I think about this book and the things it tells. It is one of those that will always stick with you.
I had wondered if it could get better... and it did!
I was sometimes annoyed with the character changes, but at the end of every segment it was simply because I wanted to know more!
Just can't get enough of this story. I eventually bought the hardcover books as well for the picture maps, but i love listening to the narrators of this story. simply wonderful!
One of my favorite Christian novels. It really makes you think about yourself, and the things you do. I've listened to this several times, and each time something new pops out at me.
I was a bit skeptical, because I've never been in to rocker romance novels before. But the way this was done was simply amazing! I've never laughed so hard while listening, I actually slapped the steering wheel a few times it was so funny.
A really great listen!!
