Having found the first book on audio CD at a used bookstore, I was then hooked and was interested in hearing another. This showed up as a Kindle/Audible Whispersync offering and I also wanted to see how that worked. I especially like listening when commuting to work, but also had some projects around the house and thought it would be nice to be able to go between reading and listening whenever I chose. I think this is the way to do things now, whenever possible!The author writes engaging, entertaining fiction that captures your interest from the first moment. The only reason for the 4 stars is you get tired of the same descriptive terminology being repeated over and over throughout the whole text. I would think that once you have developed your characters, it would not be necessary to repeat these terms, but it is her style and has been a winner for her as people keep buying her works. The performance was Excellent. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
A good story about Daniel Byrne's journey as he has to test all of his prior beliefs about his religion, his uncle, and his past. I would like to see a sequel to this.
This was an enjoyable audiobook read for the commuter. Nothing so earth shattering that you would not be safe driving, but interesting enough that you wanted to stay tuned for the next episode.
Eyes of the Hammer was read out of order, or actually it was read to me via the Whispersync application with my Kindle Keyboard. I do enjoy the Audible offerings, listening when in the car, and reading when in private, but this one was enjoyed totally in audiobook format. I have been obtaining these books out of sequence, but each stands alone, and when I read one that should have been read before, it still makes sense and enhances my understanding of those read previously. The author has created strong story lines that are believable, strong character development, and lots of action with some mysteries thrown in. What more can one ask for?
Have come to appreciate Mr. Mayer's stories, but this one struck a cord, as it is intriguing enough and one can't help but wonder, as scientists work more with DNA and genetic engineering, if something like this could not be happening somewhere. Therefore, the premise might be plausible. Personally, I was glad that Holly was the ultimate hero.
This starts out a little slow, in keeping with the genre as there are multiple story lines to set up for this rather intriguing story. It has a lot of depth and detail, and some twists and turns. I kept returning to it and as time went on, did not want it to end. This is one to take the time to enjoy. Perhaps there will be a sequel, as there could be a few directions in which this could story line could be developed. I sure hope so.
It was meant to be a teaser, and it does that well. Yes, I will consider reading and/or listening to the first in the series by this author. I do like sci fi, and this premiss would certainly allow the story line to develop in many different directions.
I enjoy most of his books but had reservations about another vampire book. This one is different, that's for sure. Not what you would expect, but an entertaining who done it, in keeping with his investigation background. I found it enjoyable reading and I like being able to go between book and audiobook with Whispersync, listing to the audiobook when commuting in the car. I am going to download a few more of this series and enjoy them now!
Remembering thinking it was interesting that a man wrote a book with the primary character being female, and did a fairly good job of it. A nice twist with some refreshing take on fairies and the like.
It kept me reading, but on the edge of my seat, not necessarily. I was interested in where the story was going but it was not a nail biter. There were some surprises along the way and a well written story is always a pleasure to read. Having this on audiobook made it a great book to listen to while commuting.
Yes. It was a slight view into a little of the culture of the time, which I sometimes wonder if many people today are aware of the limitations upon people in the past or in a different part of the world. This was entertaining and it appears to be set up for a future book, which always makes me happy. I'm one of those readers who is always sorry when a good book ends.
No. It was far to long, and I also listen to audiobooks when commuting.
