Story was worth the listen but the narrator voice tone and inflections sounded like a 17th century valley girl. Very grating.
This series is the first
I haven't listened to Saskia before and I believe it's her performance that egged me on to buy each book in this series
Each book has portrayed the heroin, Mack, as a character unable to really think for herself. I've taken to calling her a little twit. Not very flattering.
Somewhat worth it. The story was good but the narrator had way too much drama and breathlessness in her voice. Sarah Cooms needs to tone down the drama in her voice.
I would have given an overall 4-start rating if not for the narrators voice
A better narrator
I like the story. The narrator's voice ruined the character of the hero, Trainer.
Again the story was the most interesting aspect of the book. The sometimes sing song cadence of the narrator was pretty irritating.
Almost all the male voices sounded like the main villains voice.
Yes, the story was worth the time, not so the listening. One would be better off reading the book.
Sarah Coomes has been added to my list of narrators not to listen to.
Have not listened to any other Cambell performances
I've listened to all the books in this series. The first 5 or 6 were interesting but the last 5 have sounded too much like all the other books in the sereis. Time to bring the series to a conclusion.
A person not interested in much of a plot.
Story line was too basic. It's hard to believe the author of "Black Dagger Brogherhood" wrote this book too. The Black Dagger Brotherhood was great. This book was not.
No. She read the book line for line with very little inflection. The characters all spoke like they had not original thought... like repeating what is dictated to them.
I'm not sure if there is anything that could improve the book. Maybe a better narrator could give it a rating of 3
No, I have listened to many books in this genre and enjoyed them very much.
I bought the first two of the Sweet Blood series and I'll listen to them because, what the hay, I did pay for them. I won't be buying anymore books in the series, however. The herroin was just abit too dumb and her counter part was about the same.
None. The story needed all it could get.
The story was just too hokie for me. Perhaps Laurie London could take some writing tips from JR Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood)..
precise, authentic, varied
Less wordy with description and background events
The story has potential but found myself fast forwarding 1/3 the way through the second part.
I have read and enjoyed Singh's Psy-Changling series. Desert Worrior is a complete dud, however.
She sounded bored with the story
The story line is too basic and juvenile and the narrator should consider going back to narrator school. Pretty boring! This book was not worth the $$ I spent on it.
