I've already said in other reviews how entertaining and consistent this series is. I *love* it and will listen to these books over and over. Heartless had some impressive twists, an absolute blindside, and an adorable addition to the family. Time to download the last book!
For fans of the Psy-Changeling series, this is a good listen. Four novellas give personal glimpses into the lives of four different couples. The focus, and conflict, remains on the couples and each story only spans a short time. Fans will love it. New comers to the series won't appreciate it as much, and I strongly recommend starting with book 1 and putting this anthology off until you are well into the series.
The Iron Seas series is one of the most well-crafted out there. World building is top-notch. This novella is a stand alone, and can be read at any point in the series. The events are set before Book 1 and the main characters make an appearance in Book 2.
Although it's only a novella, it is every bit as entertaining (action, emotion, the works!) as the full length novels. It's worth a credit, so I think it's a bargain for under $10.
Listening to a book three times isn't unusual for me. Reading one 3 times in 3 days is a first. It's a great series, and this book has emotion, lot's of action, and Kate's past coming into play.Raudman brings *all* the characters to life. She makes it easy to forget that there is only one person narrating.
Just like Firelight, Moonglow is great from any angle: Good story, great characters, a lot of emotion, and the world continues to evolve. Moira Quirk is a name that puts me at ease. Have no doubt. Narration is never an issue with her. If you like the genre, pick this up. Winterblaze is being released next month. Can't wait for Poppy's story!
This might be the best of the series! I love all the books, but this is the one I will be listening to over and over. No information overload, but don't make the mistake of thinking it's slow. The pace is good with a range of things packed into the story: Jace and The Mob, Jace and Cassius, Jace craving kangaroo meat, etc. As usual, the supporting cast is strong, and is not eclipsed. Don't skip this one!
This was a solid story. Characters held my interest, had an unforeseen ending, and the narrator did a good job. Well done, but not great enough to entice me to listen to it again.
Another great addition to the series, The Duke's Perfect Wife includes Hart's political ambitions, assassination attempts, possible blackmail, some nice moments with the kids, Ian playing an important role in Hart's HEA, and yes, Eleanor is perfect. A lot going on and the romance doesn't get lost. Very well done.
DD Barant does an amazing job with building the world of this series with details and consistency in his logic. This becomes a slight problem with this book. There is a another alternate world introduced (for this book only), and Barant provides details of the population and culture, but also a whole story of creation. It's brilliant, but too much information to process while listening. There are small sections that can be glossed over while listening that won't take anything away from the story.
It's not my favorite in the series, but Killing Rocks is still strong on entertainment, and should not be skipped. Background on Jace and why she, in particular, was chosen to be brought to this alternate world is included and important to the overall series arc.
After enjoying the first book in the series, and being a bit disappointed with the second, I was thrilled that this third book was back on track. I still love Ian and Beth, and was glad they made appearances; however, they certainly didn't distract me from Cam and Ainsley. Once again, the author puts in conflict from sources that are not seen in typical historical romances. Very well done!
Timeless wrapped up the Parasol Protectorate Series perfectly. Mysteries were solved, additional twists continued, all my favorite characters survived, and a two year old (who spoke in sounds, one word answers, and occasionally simple sentences) was introduced. Prudence was played as well as any of the other characters. With little material to work with, the author/narrator brought her to life with a very definite personality. Timeless not only wrapped up the series, but was a well thought out lead in to the next series. Start with Souless, read the series in order, and enjoy. I look forward to further audiobooks by Gail Carriger, and hope that Emily Gray narrates them as well.
