    They soar through the night, unearthly creatures of legends and lore. Three masters of urban fantasy and paranormal romance explore the rapture of the heavens above, and the darkness below in three all-new stories of angels and guardians, and good and evil. Bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her Guild Hunter universe to tell the story of vampire Noel, and Sharon Shinn returns to her Samaria series to tell the story of a blind angel and the woman helps him---even though she hates and fears angels.

    Story

    I don't want to name names because I don't remember for sure which narrator it was, but the narrator of the Nalini Singh story has the most unpleasant voice it has been my misfortune to hear. I can not imagine how she has established a career as a narrator with such a grating and unpleasant voice. The stories were good, and the other narrators were fine. Just skip the Nalini Singh story.

    Arliss is a gorgeous young dancer at Tricks, the hottest club in Chicago's Boystown. Sean is the classic nerd, out of place in Tricks, but nursing his wounds from a recent break-up. When the two spy each other, magic blooms. But this opposites-attract tale does not run smooth. What happens when Arliss is approached by one of the biggest porn producers in the business? Can he make his dreams of stardom come true without throwing away the only real love he's ever known?

    L. Antoine says: "Might be a good story!"
    "Not one of Rick Reed's best"

    Story

    I really think I would have enjoyed this book more had I read it. I am a great fan of audio books and listen to them all the time, so I know how a narrator can enhance, or detract from, the experience. In this case the narrator did not do the story justice. The narration was flat and he had a very distracting problem with his phrasing. It made it difficult to really become immersed in the story. As for the story, there were a lot of things that were just too implausible and several characters that were just one-dimensional. Not my favorite.

    Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act, and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state. Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

    Story
    Would you listen to Dark Edge of Honor again? Why?

    Absolutely. It is an excellent story and the narration brings the characters vivdly to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complexity and strength of the characters which made it easy to become completely swept away by the story. It also has a lot of the same themes as Special Forces, another, much longer, work by Voinov which is one of my favorite stories.


    What does Jack LeFleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the characters, especially Sergei, to vivid life.
