I've never read or listened to anything by Madeline Hunter before and I won't do it again. The story is sluggish, the character's cold and hard to like, and the mystery so strung out that it lost any spark of interest.
The narration of this book is mind-numbingly dull, which only enhances what a wretched, cold character Meg is and makes the ridiculous plot twist seem even more far-fetched. Don't waste your credit. Or 11 hours of your life listening to this drivel.
I guess this was supposed to funny....I personally didn't find it to be so. The narration is fine, it's the story that bites. Carting a corpse around (and frequently forgetting about him) isn't funny. It's gross. Making out on top of a corpse isn't funny, it's morbid and unbelievably stupid. Don't waste your time with this one.
Laurens' books tend to go on and on and on, and this one is no different. In fact, I think the narration makes it even worse. Jill Tanner isn't a bad narrator, I just don't like her style. The best adjective I can think of for it is "cumbersome." She has a way of speaking that makes me want to sleep, or at least pry the words out of her. At one point I thought I had to be at least halfway through the first part of the download. A quick glance at my iPod showed that I still had five hours to go...FIVE!! And that didn't include any of the second part. Even long, steamy, frequent sex scenes couldn't help this listen. I gave up before finishing the first part and mourned the loss of a perfectly good credit.
