I am currently listening to this book - for the third time. I haven't been able to stomach the first half and keep giving it another "chance," but I should have learned my lesson! The narrator does such a bad job half the characters cannot be distinguished from one another due to Ms Roberts' lack of imagination when creating their names! His female voices are whiny, and irritating. Of course all fault cannot be pinned on him... he had nothing of substance to work with. Every few pages the same drivel is being spewed ex: "By the power of three, so mote it be." Seriously!!! None of the characters are engaging and the romance is just predictable. Do not waste your money on this, even if you get it on clearance.
Ms Roberts has many much better novels out there. Alas, I don't think I will read (listen?!) to anymore of them the flashbacks to this will ruin anything with her moniker on the cover. Trust me this review is not too harsh, I have gone quite easy, sample and see for yourself...
Keep the anti-nausea meds close at hand!
I'm still working on this one. It's bringing up ghosts of Twilight so far with the teen angsty romance. Hopefully it'll get better.
I could not complete this book! First the writing was so repetitive - this can be overcome with a great narrator but alas! This is not the case. She mispronounced words and after about an hour I could not hear her call the male lead "jock" anymore! I am born and bred American and I know the name must have the "j" sound with a different accent. (don't look to me for how to type it though!) Just skip this one fellow readers!
