I love the narrator and have looked for other titles just based on her narrations.
Wish the series spinoff had started with the characters known from the other series.
As with most serious BDB fans I was seriously juiced waiting for this installment. Lets face it the cover alone is going to bring in new fans. Qhuinn is so freakin hot. We have waited a long time for these guys to get themselves on the same page.
Trust me when I say it means a lot for a single woman to be excited about the relationship of 2 gorgeous men getting together. This has been one of the longest and best build ups to a relationship in the series. So real fans are truly saying "its about time".
Great to see the shadow brothers Trez and Iam are getting more involved we would like to see exactly what their preternatural skills are. Glad to see Asal mixing it up and we should remember the comments made in the last book about him being good enough that he should have become part of the Brotherhood.
A few things I didn't like. One the time givin to Leyla, when she was just resting and I did not think the relationship with her and Qhuinn was as genuine as it has been in the past. They have always been good friends but it was treated like Qhuinn didn't want to be bothered with her except to ask how she was feeling. Secondly there were way too many things going on in Qhuinns world. And lastly I was disappointed about the way Qhuinn handled his membership considering all the efforts taken by others to make it happen.
Props out to Ward for continuing to bring the Brotherhood into the future. Where our fantasy vampire warriors, live in NY state, wear leather and designer clothes, go to clubs, listen to metal and rap music and don't control who they fall in love with!
So worth it. I was very surprised at how well this short story was. I got it while being delayed while traveling. Nice listening good narrator and characters and they managed to put in some hot and steamy sex scenes. I did listen again later when I got settled. Could have easily been longer and done extremely well. Hope to find more of the same in the audible library.
This is a really good series from Ward, it does not need to be compared to her BDB series because it really is different. Jim is our star here and he has his own mission. Him, Ad and Eddy have problems of their own. The biggest one is that devil in a blue dress Delvina. She just doesn't play by the rules, hench her being the evil in this series. But make a note she actually has a weakness or two and I believe one of them is Jim. For the BDB lovers please keep in mind with these stories taking place around the same city our characters have and will continue to stumble across each other once or twice.
This book is very military intelligence based so it should appeal to more people and maybe men who aren't looking for so much of a love story. Lets remember the title is Fallen Angels so these guys are rough walkin and tough talkin no matter who's soul they are trying to save. There are other books in the series where love helps concur all.
Eric Dove the narrators does a very good job and has a real strong and calming voice for Jim too.
Poor Conrad he is the black sheep of the Wroth brothers. Which is hard to be because they are vampires. Make no mistake he has earned his badness. I believe next to our #1 vampire of all time Lothaire. Conrad could easily be the 2nd most dangerous vamp in the Lore.
In walks Neomi who is a classy ballerina and temptress who happens to be a ghost. Poor Conrad he's already crazy does he need to see ghost too? Yes he does because no one else can calm him down and his brothers can't do it.
This is one of the deepest love stories in KC's series so far. It's fun because we get to have some more of Nix and Meriketa who play major rolls in a lot that goes on the Lore. It's also good to finally get all the brothers Wroth together in one place for a minute.
This is not one of my favorites in the series. I was certainly looking forward to its release but not overly excited. But this book is sooo good, the audio did it for me. I thought the read was a little slow moving with the romance at first but BAM! it sure did pick up as the action did.
Cadeon is definitely one of the more human type immortals in this series. I think we all know a guy who kind of lives like him with the responsible and slobbery level. He has his crew of buddies. But nothing comes between him and his desire for his Holly.
I really like Holly shes too smart and just wacky enough to be part Valkrye. Smart enough to not jump into bed with that oh so yummy Cad. Until... Cadeon shifts gears and really inspires her with that voice and that body --- oh my you get the point. It's worth it.
This is the story of a reluctant vampire who is given a reason to be a vampire. Sebastian is one of those brilliant innocent types. Whos handsome but doesn't use it, big and strong but was embarrased by it as a mortal. Oh but when he meets a real woman and a valykrie on top of that he comes out of that shell and blossoms well.
Kaderin is that woman and the last thing on her mind is romance and certainly not with a vampire. But this charming semi clueless vamp just has it going on.
If for some strange reason you have not read Kresley Cole you can't consider yourself a fan of the genre that is immortals. These books are witty and fun and action backed with a lot of characters you will enjoy. Robert Petkoff the narrator is and will always be the narrator for this series. His accents are wonderful and he knows how to whisper sweet nothings in your ear.
If you like Sebastian keep in mind he is 1 of the 4 Wroth brothers that is just a part of this immortal series.
Oh you have to be a grown up to listen to this series it is sooo smart. If you are 21 or 71 this is a good choice. Grown ups because the emotions in this will make you wish, make you dream that 1 & 1 equal 2. Pay attention this could become a long running series and you will want to be there.
There is forbidden love going on but its so honest that you don't know which way to go. You know it's good when your not exactly sure if it's okay to cheer for the bad guys in a book. Here comes the grown up part "who are the bad guys"?
I have this and book 2 and have really enjoyed them they are so hot and spicy. Our narrator can deliver such a sense of control and heat at the same time. Good going Sylvia Day keep us coming back with these stories.
This book two is a very entertaining and spicy listen. We have strong characters and the best delivery of dialog. Im sad it wasn't longer. This is a audio you will listen to more then once. Makes me very excited for the next book in this series. I love Sylvia Days writing and am now a super fan of the narrator Rachel Vivette.
The men in this series are no nonsense and will blow your mind. Our male alpha in this book is clear and honest with what he wants, our female vampire is like "can this man be real?" OH YES HE CAN!
I was glad to get this audiobook - I believe Kimberly Alexis is a very good narrator and has a wider range in accents then other narrators of this series have. This is more Anita Blake bad ass we have come to love. Shes carrying her weapons and shes not afraid to use them. Its always a good thing when her other federal marshal friends come and join the party especially Edward (Ted).
Everytime I review one of these books I remind listeners that Anita Blake is the Human Servant of Master Vampire Jean Claude who obtains power from SEX and seduction. We long time listeners/readers may have started following this series with Anita as a vampire executioner and Necromancer. So we would still like to see more of that in the series. However we have to come to terms if you continue listening/reading this series that Anita is becoming less human and more preternatural. Shes considered a vampire who feeds off sex which is a lot better then some of the other powers Master Vampires have like feeding off fear, or those who create rotting vampires.
So I give this a good review and recommend you fast forward or skip the sex scene if they offend. And let LKH know we still like Anita fighting the monsters as much as possible.
Okay Im a big fan of the series, I'm not a big fan of this particular narrator cause she doesn't carry off the strong aspects of Anitas character. We love Jason and the way he deals with Anita on a more friend level then any of the other men. The problem is theres only a few minutes of Anita, Human Servant, Federal Marshall and Vampire Executioner forget the Necromancer part.
The other side is that we have to take into account Jean Claudes powers (Ardour) are based in SEX. So we really shouldn't be fazed by the amount of lovers Anita obtains. It's about power. I'm assuming we are suppose to take away from this book that theres an evil thats trying to seperate Anita from Jean Claude and sending lovers to her bed that Jean Claude can not control - like Tigers.
