I am very glad I read "Covet" before it came to Audible. As always, J. R. Ward delivers an action-packed sexy story with an interesting premise and intriguing characters. I was thrilled that two of the brothers made appearances and I liked getting to know characters who only had a minor role in the BDB books.
I was extremely disappointed when I discovered that Jim Frangione wasn't the narrator. Eric Dove's rather unemotional narration really detracted from the story. He gave Vin diPietro a strange accent that made me squirm with discomfort every time Vin talked. Because of this, it took me well over a month to listen to the entire book.
If you are already a J. R. Ward fan, the lack-luster narration probably won't scare you away, but if this is the first audio book you've experienced by J. R. Ward, I highly recommend that you read her Black Dagger Brotherhood series before reading Covet.
At long last, Zarek's story is on audible! This is my favorite book in the Dark Hunter series--followed closely by Acheron. The plot drew me in immediately and even though I've read this book several times, Fred Berman's narration added depth and emotion. I must admit to feeling an innitial stab of disappointment when I discovered that Holter Graham wasn't reading Zarek's story, However within minutes, Fred Berman made me forget all my objections. Not only does he give Zarek a rather sexy accent, but his emotional and intense naration brought the characters to life.
Zarek is the quintessential dark and tortured hero and Astrid's strength and courage are the perfect complement. Zarek's story touched my romantic's heart.
