A light, quick moving tale of vamps and werewolves, overlaid with snarky southern wit and charm. The performance was excellent, lending the proper southern twang without making me want to strangle her. Unless she was doing a character that needed to be strangled, of course!
I love the combo of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi! Alaskan and Canadian accents mixed the with southern twang of the heroine, Ronconi gets them all perfectly. Molly Harper's writing is true to life 'cause only a southern girl could be that woeful mixture of stubborn and damned. This book is hot and sexy and funny! A must listen :) And I buy books that I listen to over and over ;) Check out this duo's other series too.
This book has possibilities. It attempts to be an epic fantasy series and succeeds up to a point. The story line is great with great powerful lords and the poor wretches on which the lords step on. I liked the length and the narrator was good. Although there were some mispronunciations, they weren't terribly annoying. Other than a few gramatical mistakes the writing was interesting and the dialogue of "Gaborn" (I have NO idea how his name is spelled having only heard it.) was deep and thoughtful. I really liked his character because how many men are really going to behave that way?! Loving a woman no matter what is an attractive quality in a man! The thing that disappointed me, or made me not rate it 5, was the constant explanations of how the gifts affected the lords in general. It was good in that you really could begin to imagine it, but once you understand it, you don't need it explained again and again ;) I'm listening to it again before I get the 2nd book in the series. I'm hoping for lots of growth. This was a really good start.Let's hear it for honor, goodness and true love!
A fast moving tale of a modern day druid dealing with ancient threats. Atticus,slogs his way thru ancient gods and evil witches with style and a rather snarky wit. Rife with some fun pop culture references, it's a great modern take on the typical fantasy read. My favorite part is the faithful wolfhound, Oberon, which the narrator brings to life with perfection!
