This was a really good book and the first book of it's kind that I think would strongly appeal to both sexes. A lot of it is from the main male characters viewpoint. He's a soldier, special operations in a leadership position and as a former military wife I can say she was dead on with his characteristics and personality. Reminded me a lot of some folks I know. I think a man would like this book just as much as the ladies. A nice balance between story, character and animal attraction (and of course the results of that - it is Feehan after all). I'd certainly recommend the book or audiobook.
Strong characters, not a damsiel in distress type of thing, she is as much rescuing him as he ever rescues her.
Ryland - definitely. He oozed right out of the head phones and into my fantasies!
His emotions conflicting with his need to be all male.
Very well done from all sides. Particularly like that this book would be as enjoyable for the guys as the gals. I haven't seen another of this kind like that.
This series is one of my two top favorite Audiobook series.
Bones, he's determined, hardheaded and smart. He doesn't beg at her feet, but baits her into telling him what she wants and he doesn't want anything that she doesn't, even for himself.
The surprise one I can't tell you about because it would be a spoiler. Anyone who listens will know when they get to it!
This was a great book. It lost a star for the story because it started leaning toward common Vampire genre fantastic things at one point. Hopefully that trend won't continue in the series.
The Ghost Walkers series ranks among my top two highest book series and audio book experiences. I am so hooked I am buying them ahead of my points in quick succession. I'm not too happy at the higher price over other books.
It was very well written on characterization. Real people, real reactions, no unrealistic swooning on either characters part. Caution and fear, insecurity, the whole gamut.
Nicolas Trevane has finally met, the only woman to take his heart and a one of a kind match when the dark and dangerous Dahlia La Blanc walks out of the bayou and straight into chaos.
Loved this book, so far I'm loving this series. Looking forward to the rest of them.
No. I had an overall distaste for this story. The characters went against human nature and there was some very distasteful content. I suspect that was part of the point, but I didn't find it so much disturbing as just a little pointless.
I don't give spoilers, but there was content that I think was meant to be disturbing, but was more just pointless.
No, never. Glad it wasn't a novel, I wouldn't have gotten far.
I am usually a fan of Steven King, but this one I really felt I wasted my time on. It was a bit of a shock, because I don't think I've ever said that about the books I've read or listened to. The performance was fine, it was the material.
Exciting, intriguing, electric
Bones - the reader did a very good job of performing these characters
Yes, I didn't want to be disturbed or have to pause it for anything.
This was well performed, well written, good strong characters and a realistic ending instead of the "happily ever after" we get all too often with tidy, unrealistic end results.
The writer would have to do a lot to earn back my trust. The narrators did a good job.
Good narration, good rythm and sound.
This book probably had a good story buried in there somewhere. I caught glimpses of it. It had beautiful prose and language. But the story was so deeply buried underneath the facts, description and a ton of unnecessary material that I gave up finding it at about halfway through. Much further than I'd normally give something to get to the point.
Fun, moving, energetic
The realistic nature of their lives. Struggling to make ends meet, working hard to make their way in the world.
This was a fun, fast moving read. Good description, characterization, performance. It has a lot of energy and well worth the time.
The learned tolerance of the different species.
It was an interestingly woven story, but it took forever to get going. It was slow, nice dialogue, good sound and prose, but the rythm lacked heavily in the first 1/3 of the book. It picked up, but I almost didn't get there. Once I did it was worth it.
When he introduces her to his family home in France.
Okay book, the slow start pulled down it's rating.
I enjoyed the rich description in this story.
MiHail is well written, very male and character and personality fits with his time period.
Too many to pick from.
Yes, in fact I cheated a lot listening in places I don't normally.
This was a good book, strong characters and setting. I felt Raven was a little too "damsiel in distress" at times, but overall the story is good enough to absorb that weakness. I could see, feel, smell the entire story.
There is nothing that wouldn't have made it better. The stories were immature and amateur in writing and composition. The performance made me feel like I was being talked down to and was questioning my intelligence. Overall I felt like it was an immense waste of time I could have spent on another book.
All of them.
So much could have been done differently, but the very first consideration is always your audience and any audience that is addressed like this is going to walk away. Cheesy on so many levels.
