I can see why Kismet (female lead) need a psychologist and boy can she get herself into trouble or maybe I should say trouble finds her. Dev (male lead) is a very mysterious charater and it will be interesting to find out more about him. The supporting cast and sub-plots help make this a good listen.
I found the writers spin on vampires interesting, funny, and refreshing. However, the narrator leaves sum to be desired. Maybe I'm just spoiled by my 3 favorite narrators who do both female and male voices so well.
Over all I found this book to be a fun one to listen to and I've already downloaded book 2.
At first I was a little let down with this one. Yvette and Haven fight more then anything else in the beginning, but as the story develops, you can see things change between them. Haven is looking for his lost sister and killing vampires when he can. But he is also taking care of his brother. As you learn more of Haven's story and Yvette's along the way, you can see what they both really fear. This one starts out slow, but it builds to a great end and one I wasn't expecting at all.
With each passing book, I have to wander more and more what Zane, Thomas, and Oliver's stories are and how they will end.
Ms. Folsom continues to build on her characters and at the same time she tells Gabriel's story. I have to admit that Gabriel and Mia's story had a lot of twists and turns that I didn't expect. The "villain" in this one will surprise you! The one part of this book that I didn't like was when Carl gets killed. Even though he is only a minor character in these books, I really like him and was sad to see him get killed.
All through book 1, I wondered what Amaury's story was and now I know. This is going to be a series you will have to listen to in order or you will lose some of the reminders that are in this book. Ms. Folsom has continued to build on the characters that were in the first book and she keeps you wanting to see what happens next. Nina and Amaury chase one another for different reasons and the ending was such a surprise. I love the way Ms. Folsom keeps showing vampires as normal people too. You begin to look at these vampires as a family group in a way.
Finally some one who writes about vampires as people to with all the same problems as humans. Great storyline with very interesting characters and situations. Ms. Folsom develops great characters and sets everything in San Francisco. While love wins in the end, its the traveling there that makes this such a good book. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way and you are introduced to some interesting supporting characters. I can't wait to hear their stories as well.
A great follow up to book 1! The storyline is very well done and the plot has thickened. I haven't figured out who the bad guy is yet and that's not normal for me. Mia is getting a little smarter but she still has a ways to go. While we do learn some more about the Krinar there are still a lot of questions to be answered. I was also surprised by Mia's family, while Korum does win them over, it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
There are only 2 problems with this book, first I now have to wait for book 3 and Kitty Hendrix was not the right narrator for it. I hope they can get some one like Xe Sands or Sophie Eastlake for the next book. While Kitty does have a good voice, she does not make the switch back and forth between male and female voices. That is the only thing that is wrong with this book. I found I lost track sometimes of who was speaking because she uses the same voice for both parts.
But over all I am glad I spent the credit on it. If you liked book 1, you will like this one as well, if you over look the narrator.
While browsing through books I came across the review written by another listener and I'm sorry to say I do not remember who it was. But she mentioned this series in the review that she had written for another book and am I glad she did!!! I wasn't to interested in the original book, but I decided to check out this series and again I have to thank you for mentioning it. This is the story of Lily St. James a dormant and Daniel (who happens to be the police chief of New Orleans) a werewolf. This is the first time I have heard of the term "dormant" in relationship to werewolves, a term that means more then just mate. Lily is caught between 2 powerful alpha werewolves, Daniel and Cole. As the story moves along, you come to find out Cole is not the sinister werewolf that he seems to be despite what he does to Lily.
Ms. Walden writes a fast paced book with may twist and turns and Gildart Jackson does a great job of narrating all though he could use a little work on his female voices.
A very interesting twist on "War of the Worlds." I found Korum to be a fascinating character and Mia to truly be naïve. Because Mia is so inexperienced, she does not think to ask questions that she should and it could have cost her a great deal. This story also shows what can go wrong when your "Allies" don't give you the whole truth about things.
There are many things that were left unexplained in this book, but that give me a reason to look forward to the next in this series. I do hope that Anna Zaires continues with Korum and Mia's story and more about the Krinar.
This is a bit of a let down after Thea Harrison's Elder Race series. While she does a good job of writing this book, it is what I would call a ground work book for what I hope will come. Unfortunately that is what most of this book is, ground work, but there is some good action at the end and some very interesting questions posed at the end. It will be interesting to see if what I think and hope happens to Nick. Now that the ground work has been done, I look forward to the next book in this series as well as the next in her Elder Race series.
As always Sophie Eastlake does a great job of narrating.
A great second book and no let down from the first (Feral Sins). Suzanne Wright continues with a good story line, fast action pace, and strong supporting characters. This is Dante's story and give a very in depth look at a Beta's role in a wolf pack. Something that is lacking in other books even if they do mention the Beta. It also explains a lot about the imprinting and what can happen if it goes wrong, which it did once to Dante. Jaime is the other lead character in this story and her story tells what can happen to a shifter that is traumatized early in life. Together they over come what happened in their pasts. There are a lot of funny scenes as well. I very much look forward to hearing the other pack members stories.
If you liked Thea Harrison's Elder Race series or Nalini Singh's Changeling series, then I think you will enjoy this series as well.
If your looking for a good love story this is the one for you. This is a straight forward love story, no vamps, wolves, or changlings. Just a good honest love story with alot of fun and a strong cast of supporting characters. Its hard to find a good book while waiting for my favorite authors to put out something new, but this is a good book. If you don't like love stories, then this is not the book for you.
