sooo happy to find another series of books to enjoy. wonderfully written, and narrated. everything you want, mystery, intrigue, suspense, and a great storyline... just right up my alley.
can't remember why, maybe it was one of the cheaper promos... gotta say, i loved the narration! Holter Graham has one of those voices i enjoy listening to. i also enjoyed the idea of this book, and the one area i wished had been downplayed was the descriptive, and sometimes lengthy, sexual situations. i'd rather have some things left to the imagination, although it is not the worst i've listened to by any stretch of the imagination.
but, even though i thought there was too much time given to the love life, or lack thereof, of the main characters, i really enjoyed listening to this one.
i am concerned about the multiple narrators in this series...for me the narrator makes or breaks a book, and Holter Graham has become the heart of this series for me. ( as with the Dresden Files, changing the narrator breaks the spell of the series...)
out of 4 parts, i really only liked 1 completely. i don't know if it's the odd cadence of the narration or what. i do like the idea of the story line, but much of it was seemed overkill. some of the voices were very similar, but in all fairness, there are a vast cast of characters.
i don't believe i'll buy the rest of the series though, as the plots were too drawn out for me and sometimes i just didn't care for the outcome for the character involved.
I loved this series until I started the 4th book. While MacLeod Andrews is a very good narrator, his portrayal of Grim has really brought the enjoyment level of this book down. I suppose it's in a effort to try to make the cat character sound like he is purring, but it only succeeds in sounding like whine, whine, whine, moan and groan. Grims voice is so annoying that I have started to dread his part in the book. There is little about the story so far that is uplifting ( I'm only about 2/3rds the way through the first part of the book). So much of it is dark and depressing without enough expectation from the characters to lighten the load.
Still, I am persevering in hopes that the dark will soon end and the hope and light will be just around the corner. Such a disappointment to what was a wonderful series.
Good as always for this team...but I am hoping the next book tops them all. I'm feeling as if Ms McGuire is getting a bit tired of the series. It seems to be lacking in the first books wit and humor as if she's struggling to come up with different story lines for her heroine and heroes.
I did see another book that appears to be in the same series, October Daye, called 'Nacht Mayhr'... I hope to see it here in Audible soon.
I loved the first book in this series and looked forward to this one. Although good, it was not as good as the first. The story line dragged on without the 'I can't wait to hear more'.
I found myself thinking 'get on with it, will ya, already!'
I liked the narration quite well, and will probably take a chance when the next book comes out in this series...i hope there is a next one...lol
this story had the most wonderful opportunity to make the reader feel the most wonderful, uplifted and soul restored in their life... guess what...? made me feel an overwhelming dispair in the pit of my stomach that took years to go away.
it is just now that i am able to comment on this story, as the heartfelt sickness overtook my ability to snap out of it quickly, as i usually can. this author has an exceptional ability to bring the reader into the story...too bad the story turned out to be so sickenly dark.
the narrators were without doubt wonderful, the only reason i was able finish the book, in hopes the possible end i saw in sight would prevail...it didn't.
very disappointed with this book. i had seen the commercials for the movie and thought it would be a very good show to watch. so when i saw it listed on audible, i went ahead and got it. just AWFUL!!!
very 'wordy', nd detailed in places there was no reason for it. nothing about the book made me want to listen to the rest of it. i missed a lot of it as i just removed the earbuds for periods of time, hoping to miss the lengthy, irritating, unnecessary details.
gotta say, after this 'listen', which i intend to return, i'm not so interested in watching the movie.
just to be fair, the narrator isn't bad, just the book...
Bought this book a little oveer 3yrs ago, but didn't remember much past the first chapter...now I'm in the home stretch and finding it diffucult not to stop with the few remaining hours. The story is good, but the lack of dimension of the narrator is killing it. I could listen to Mia Barron, as she does have a good voice, if it weren't for her inability to 'do' the side characters. The voice of the boy 'Cam' is almost more than I take as I have never enjoyed listening to anyone talk in a 'whiney, can't get the frog out of your throat' voice.
This is the reason I have not bought the rest of the books in this series. Maybe if they changed the narrator, I would reconsider.
always a good way to spend some down time. the only complaint for me is the length of time i have to spend by passing the sex scenes. what ever happened to letting the imagination take the lead...?
