It did not take long for me to decide I needed to read this entire series after the first book but I think this book is my favorite. I devoured this book.The story was full of energy and did not stop moving. New characters were introduced and of course, plenty of Cat and Bones. The narrator was able to bring out such an emotion in me as a listener as she told this story. Jeaniene has created such a wonderful world..I can't wait to see what she has planned next.
This is the book #2 for the Midnight Breed series.
What I liked about this story is we could jump right into the ongoing battle between the Breed Warriors and the Rogues, except now the focus is on Dante and Tess. And what a story they have to share. Dante is the fierce Italian warrior that fights his future. Tess is a breed mate veterinarian, running from her past. She is forced into this dark world without choice. Their story is raw and emotional, laced with intimate moments that suck you in. They both try to fight their destiny but the pull they have to each other in undeniably strong.
We are also introduced to another vampire, Sterling Chase. He is from the Dark havens, a place where the breed and their mates call home, hidden from the human word. We find out the Dark haven vampires believe the warriors are vigilantes and yet, he reached out and asks the warriors to help him. Sterling struggles with his own demons, he has desires that he cannot act upon. In the end, this vampire is still searching to find his purpose. I suspect this is not the last we see or hear of Sterling Chase.
Again, the audio version was well narrated. Dante’s voice rolls off her tongue and I can just picture this Italian warrior standing before me. Her female voices improved with this story, finding definite variations for the various breed mates that fit them perfectly.
I am hooked on this series. This world is addictive and I find myself sucked in to warriors fight. I can’t wait to read the next one.
This is is the first in the Midnight Breed series. Lara does a great job with laying the foundation of this urban fantasy world. A world that includes vampires called Breed warriors that fight to eliminate all vampires gone rogue to blood lust.
The story of Lucan and Gabrielle is a slow build but still full of suspense, betrayal, adventure and romance. Lucan battles his own personal demons and refuses to acknowledge his attraction to Gabrielle. She is thrown into his world and struggles with the new knowledge of her part in it. The chemistry between them jumps off the pages.
And in the middle of Lucan and Gabrielle’s story, the Breed warriors discover a new threat in their fight to eliminate the rogue vampires. All I can say is I like how Lara ended this story with just a glimpse into this new threat. This new villain will challenge the breed warriors. I did not anticipate this twist but I like it.
I listened to an audio version of this book. Hillary Huber narrates the story. I felt overall she did a good job. I did like the accents she used for the Breed warriors; the female character voices had more subtle changes but still no problem with following along with the story.
I am so glad I decided to start this series. I am hooked after one book. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a darker urban fantasy paranormal romance story. I was not disappointed with the audio version and I look forward to book #2.
This is a great story. Charlie Davidson, grim reaper, is witty and funny as she tries to solve mysteries as she talks to the dead. The stuff she says is just hilarious. Plus she is surrounding by her family and friends that only add to the craziness of her life. And we can not forget Reyes Alexander Farrow, the man's sexiness jumps out at you from the story.
One of my favorite scenes in this book involves the homeless man, I think the conclusion of his small story was just perfect.
I did listen to this book. Lorelei King does a fabulous job with the narration. The way she reads teh story kept me engaged and really made Charlie come to life.
I love this urban fantasy series. It has a little bit of everything in it-paranormal, romance, mystery, and adventure. I can't wait for the next book to see who is bothering Charlie now and what Reyes has in store for her.(
I am hooked on the Night Huntress series! I believe Jeaniene Frost has created a wonderful world of vampires, ghouls and things that go bump in the night. Tavia Gilbert narrates her stories beautiful, keeping the same voices from the NH series. I got some advice to read the Night Huntress world books between C&B Books 4 & 5..... that was good advice. The story picks up sometime after C&B4. And I believe by reading the NH world series will add to enjoying C&B5 even more.
This book does focus on more romance, initially, but do not worry, the action and excitement one learns to expect from J.Frost is there. I think the story of Spade and Denise is definitely worth listening to especially if you are already hooked on Cat and Bones.
I loved listening to this book. The story is good and solid plus listening to just brings it to life. Tavia Gilbert does a wonderful job with the narration. Can't wait for the next one.
I was surprised to read all the negative reviews for this book. I liked it. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Cat and Bones. I wanted more of it. The book has a little of everything...action, romance, sex, violence, building sexual tension....to me, all ingredients for a good book.
The narration was good. Cat's voice was perfect. Bones' voice..well, at first, I almost stopped listening because it seemed off and overly harsh but I keep listening. His voice softened as the book moves forward, either that or I just got use to it, maybe both because now I think this voice is perfect for Bones. The one voice that drove me nuts was her Mom's voice, like nails on a chalkboard.
I decided to take a chance on Cat and Bones and I am glad I did. I liked this book and I look forward to the next book in the Night Huntress series.
This book caught my attention on in Entertainment Weekly on the "Must List" I was very interested. I waited till it was available on audible. Deborah creates such a magical word that is only more magical by Jennifer Ikeda's narration. I was captivated from the beginning, it slowly built into a book I could not put down. I listened to this book every chance I could. I have recommended this book to several friends, they purchased the book and I have not heard any negative reviews yet.
Then to find out this is a series, just makes me happy. I will be patiently waiting for the next book.
I needed to select a book for our book club. I searched through several books and found this book as a recommendation from Audible. I took a chance and got it, then after listening to the first chapter decided this would be my book club selection. I could not put the book down. The narrator's voice transports you back to 14th century. It was a great book.
I love this series and am so sad this is the last book but what a story. I will admit that I was nervous when the "Gov't secret agency" was introduced but in the end it fit into the story well. Lisbeth is such a great character, full of so many secrets and surprises. I loved it. And I recommend this series to everyone!
