Really liked this series and loved Bronson Pinchot's narration. The only part I did not like was the ending. I'm not going to spoil anything, but would have prefered something in a little different direction. Having said that, this was a good book and a great listen!
This was another good installment for the series. As a stand alone book, it's not the best by any stretch of the imagination. The narrators do a fantastic job and IMHO make the series better by a mile. The story is coming along nicely, although, I think it's the weak point as the series goes on. Characters are fine, growing up and all, but the story line itself is not exactly mind blowing.
The story is not wholly unoriginal and on the surface sounds interesting, but alas, the story jumps around and takes the long road in story telling.
I think Riddle wrote this with the idea he was gonna get a movie deal.
He did fine, hard to judge since I didn't like the book all that much.
I think that's the authors intention all along.
This is not a wholly bad book, but it doesn't have characters with depth or anyone to care enough about. Pretty generic book.
Yes, very entertaining and good narration.
I really enjoyed his take on the main character, his female voices are....ok
Yes. This story fits in with a lot of the new shows on the Networks and Syfy
This is a very well narrated book with a good (not great) story. There is a lot to build on with the mythos and characters. The action was good and fast paced with small doses of humor.
Anthony Bowden is one of the best narrators out there. Voices for other characters were okay, but for the main character he was simply amazing.
No, but I will now.
This was a pretty good book in terms of story, not fantastic, but pretty good. I think there is a need for Audible to use tenths for ratings. The story is more like a 3.6 ish, which is pretty good for a 1st of story. The naration is phenomenal, with good characters and a very believable main character.
Very believable character with a good dash of humor.
I thought the book started off a little slow and I almost stopped listening, but 1/3 of the way through I was hooked. The narator did a very good job of creating a likable character. The author took a while to get ramped up with the story, IMHO, as at first I really couldn't tell where, what, or if the case was the main story line or merely part of the characters overall story. Once that got sorted out, all proper like, the book really took off for me.
In this series it holds its' own. Definately not the best, but falls right in with the story.
Narrators really enhance this book. They do a fantastic job.
I personally like this series a lot, so I'm probably biased about how good the book really is. Like I said earlier, it's by far not the best, but it does bring the story closer to a finale.
The narrators are perfect!
The author created an amazing cast with depth and believability. The story was developed and had some very good twist and turns.
I don't think any author can be perfect on every character, but RW is perfect for the lead character,
This is a fantastic first book to a series. Great characters with good backdrops mixed with humor and a good amount of action. The story took some nice twist and turns, with characters being developed all through the book. The mythos is just sketchy enough to allow for good stories to come.
Damon Abdallah does a fantastic job with this book. Nearly every reader pronouces fairie names differently and it was fine with me to hear DA do so. His voice is perfect for Kal and he does a great job with the different characters.
This series has become a favorite of mine. The author keeps the stories fresh and fast paced. Stone has created a lead character with depth and a good sense of humor. There are many highs and lows for Kal and this is what has made me really enjoy the series and in particular this book, which is my favorite so far. The author has created a cool niche with his main character and story line that will be fun for many more books, I hope.
Pretty good ending. No real surprises, but it was entertaining
I think this book was a smoother book than the first. Khristine Hvam rocks the hell out of the southern voices, she has perfect timing. I really did enjoy the listen and the characters are very easy to like, I think Faith is putting together a good core cast and leaving tons of room for diversity with character development. My only complaint was the story itself. I like most of the characters and love Khristine, but the all powerful vamps routine gets very old for me. When Leo ripped her up there should have been at least some type of fight, especially since she turned into uber big cat, I mean how many times can you hear "I am not Prey" and then......nothing. I was hoping the vamp mythos would be original too. This origin line isn't too overly borrowed, but it wasn't exactly new, as soon as I heard the Latin phrase for Judas Iscariot, I was disappointed.
Having said all that, I did enjoy the book and again Khristine kicks ass! Worth the listen and I will be finishing out the next several books.
Ray Porter did an amazing job with this book. Very cool story with a cool array of characters.
The author did a fantastic job of giving each character a moment of coolness and plenty of good scenes to go around.
Scooby Doo and the gang with NO f'n scrappy!
I really enjoyed this book and found the mystery part very entertaining. It's kind of en vogue to use Lovecraft and Clines does so without infringing on the originals. Old meets new, loved the style, cast of characters, and the humor.
I can't say enough about Ray Porter in this book. He did an amazing job with each character. The story reminded me a little of John Dies at the End, in as far as the characters and how shit just happens, but they all just rolled with it.
