After 7 books, the Jane Yellowrock series remains fresh and imaginative. I was particularly liked Black Arts, because Jane makes real progress toward acceptance of who and what she is. The battle scenes are fabulous and Leo, the Master of New Orleans, remains the character I love to hate (except when I don't)! He always keeps me guessing. I think there is much more to this series and hope it will keep going for a long time. Kristine Hvam's narration is spot-on, especially in the voice of Beast.
I could hardly wait for Eve to catch the perp- this is one villain that I truly wanted to see finished. I think I hated him more than any of her previous villains and that's saying something!
I think Susan Ericksen is the voice for all the characters. I no longer read the books and just enjoy her performance.
Eve's interaction with Nixie at end of the book.
I thought the book focused a little too much on the villain. I would have enjoyed more interaction with Eve's friends and family. I do appreciate the way Robb has a horrific scene and follows it with something lighter. It gives you a chance to breathe.
I actually waited for the audio version despite the very long wait for it and have not read the print version.
I always enjoy James Marsters narrations- with some minor caveats. There were a couple of mispronunciations in the book that really bothered me. He handles the multiple voices very well otherwise.
I loved the non-stop action and character development. No one plots action as well as Karen Chance.
I would compare this to the other Midnight's Daughter books and the Cassie Palmer series.
I loved the scene when Ray and Dory go shopping for "supplies" for the fae. Laugh out loud funny.
I think it has to be the final scene between Louis-Cesar and Dory.
It has taken me a while to get used to Joyce Bean's narration of this series, particularly the voice of Mircea, as well as other male voices. The exception is the voice of Ray, which I think she gets just right.
A return to the more adventure based story that I like most in this series
The adventure and learning something about a part of history that I knew nothing about and Laurie King's descriptive prose.
Have listened to all the audio books narrated by Jenny Sterlin in the Holmes- Russell novels. Robert Ian MacKenzie is new to me, and I didn't quite see the point of going to a dual voice production. That being said, I found his voice nicely nuanced and resonant. I don't usually care much for multi-voice but Garment of Shadows was well done.
Yes, and I almost did!
As always, Susan Ericksen's narration is the best. I have listened to all the novels and I can't imagine any other voices for the characters.
The twist that I never saw coming.
The scene in restaurant
Yes- and I did (almost). It kept me up til the wee hours.
