I may have been able to enjoy this book had it not been for the narrator. The entire book is read in a monotone. I hope this narrator is NOT reading any of the other books in this series.
This seemed more like a space filler than a real stand alone story. The female lead was boring. She obtained a job under the wrong reasons. What was worst, to be in the middle of a big vampire war, no one checked her out. The simply relied on the information on her application. The vampires made stupid decisions that endangered all their lives. I don't feel this story was well thought out.
The narrator was just not good. I have heard better accents in previous books. Some of the characters who should have accents did not. At one point the the Spanish shifter spoke with the highlander's accent. I was not sure that I heard it correctly so I rewound just to make sure. I hope she is not narrating any other books. I may have to go back to reading rather than listening.
It was a great end to a wonderful series. I hate to see it end but am very glad it was so well done.
I have read several other Sarah McCarty books and thought this would be as good. I am utterly disappointed. The characters are flat. The story is difficult to follow. The female lead is annoying. Even the sex is a let down. I never thought sex could be so boring. I just wanted them all to walk into the sun and end my misery. I am a paranormal romance fan but this I could not stomach. The rest of the series will have to go on without me.
