Probably around the middle. I mean it was a good book for sure, but I have read/listened to a lot and this one isn't my favorite.
Probably when everyone learned the truth about "Karen."
I have not but I like her perspective on things. I like that she made people with disabilities a big part of her story and showed how beautiful they are too. It was quite touching and very sweet.
"At the heart of it...."
I really enjoyed reading this book. I think the narration was great and the story was very tender. If you are looking for something a little different, then I would definitely recommend this.
I don't know as I've never read the print version.
Pretty much all of the book so its hard to say. Maybe when Lex was learning about herself.
I didn't really have a favorite scene, but I generally overall loved Lex's tenacity to fight for her sister and niece. She loves hard and I really liked that about her. I also liked the supporting characters as well.
Never stop fighting for those you love...
I think that works. It's early and I'm not at my most creative right now.
I really enjoyed this book. This is my first go round with this author and narrator and I think they both did a superb job. I definitely recommend this book whether it is on a credit or not.
Yes. Currently, Dannika Dark is 1 for 1 (1 good, 1 ok). The first book "Seven Years" was so awesome that I would be willing to try again. Maybe just one more time.
April's voice! It drove me crazy. She was too whiny and sounded scared of her own shadow the majority of the book. I understand her being timid is part of her character but I think narrator and author took this characteristic way too far.
Absolutely not. I wouldn't even watch previews.
I am a bit disappointed in this book compared with how good book 1 was. I could not recommend it in good concious unless it was on a sale...AND a person didn't mind listening to April's (Nichole Poole) annoying performance.
Wow it's been a while since a book has kept my attention. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised of a somewhat new take on the shifter genre. This book showed emotion, love, mystery and humor. I actually lol a couple of times. The author did a phenomenal job. The narrator was superb as well. I found myself downloading book 2 before book 1 ended! Needless to say I recommend Seven Years!
I thought this was a pretty good YA story. It had a lot of interesting elements and good characters. I feel like the book tries to send a positive message to teenagers by giving life advice so that was cool. However, I actually found it to be quite juvenile...and this is coming from someone who likes a good YA novel. Now even with that being said, I think this is a pretty decent read for someone 21 & under. I would recommend it then.
Possibly someone who has never read/heard the amazing writing that is Ilona Andrews. I think someone who is just getting their feet wet in the Fantasy genre could start here.
I am currently listening to Desire's Prize by M. S. Laurens. This isn't an author I have ever read before but I got in on a sale and am hoping I get pleasantly surprised.
I have to first give the disclaimer that Renee Raudman is my favorite narrator but I have to be honest. Just like another reviewer said, she was not spot on with her performance this time. Her voices were not consistent. There was one time that Nevada sounded like Adam Pierce and I had to rewind cause I found it odd that Adam would be having the conversation. Also, some of the voices drove me crazy. Early on Adam sounded masculine at least, but towards the end he sounded like a whiny 11 year old.
Honestly I was sad and disappointed, especially because I pre-ordered this with keen anticipation. Ilona Andrews is my favorite author and I was expecting so much more. This book is definitely NOT a romance novel. I had a hard time understanding when the romance supposedly started. It just seemed to be all about Rogan's hotness, arrogance and crassness. Nevada appeared to be strong originally but then just let Rogan's looks completely distract her. It just seemed like she was in lust with him and I didn't feel that the affection or relationship was built up well.
This book does not sound original to the author at all. It seems like they tried to step outside of their urban fantasy genre into romance but did not land soundly. This book let me down. But please do not let this one work throw you off of this author. The Kate Daniels series is totally amazing, and I understand that may be a hard thing to beat.
Obviously from the rating you can tell how much I enjoyed this book. Everything was spot on from the narration to the characters to the story. This is definitely a romance novel, but one where the main characters had some pretty decent flaws-no matter how beautiful and perfect they both looked on the outside. The cover picture does not do the book justice, as it indicates more of a trashy type chic lit/erotica book which this book is definitely not.
I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and am currently on the prowl for more books by Kim Law with Natalie Ross narrating. Need I say more? Go buy it!
I really really enjoyed listening to this book. First off, lets talk about the narration. Traci Odom did a great job and I can't wait to listen to more from her. The book had somewhat of a new take on the whole vampire thing and it was pretty action packed. For those of you who dislike sappy love stories, this one is definitely for you. While there may be a love interest, it is not the primary focus of this story.
All in all, I would not hesitate to buy this book regardless if it is on sale or not.
This was a good book, but not as good as Ilona Andrews normally writes...in my very humble opinion. I am a huge fan of the Kate Daniels series so I was expecting something as good as that series, but this one just isn't it. Even with that being said, please do not misunderstand me thinking this was not a good book, because it is. However, for the first time every I found myself a little disappointed in Renee Raudman. For some strange reason the character was supposed to be in her early 20's but she sounded like she was in her late 70's. Also, there was a bit of overacting that drove me crazy!!!! (P.S. I'm sorry Renee cause I really love your narration normally).
Ok so enough of the negatives, lets talk about the good. There were really funny moments that I wasn't expecting that I found myself literally laughing out loud to. I also liked the little romance aspect and the two guys competing for the main character.
All in all, I would still recommend this book. But I would say if you have never read an Ilona Andrews novel, please do not be turned off by this review or this book. This is a pretty interesting writing team that writes some of the most intriguing stories.
Absolutely! This book is amazing and I have no problem recommending it to anyone who likes a bit of action, adventure, and mystery!
Well its a mix of Atticus and Oberan. Atticus's adaptation to the current times was pretty cool, but I loved the humor of both of their characters.
Oberan (once again spell check lol). He did such a good job that there were moments I found myself laughing!
Of course..but then of course I couldn't really do that because of that little thing called responsibility lol.
I must honestly say I bought the book on a sale and truly delayed in reading it by like 6 months. I am so glad I finally took the time out to listen and it was such a pleasant surprise. There is no syrupy love story in here, just pure...idk awesomeness??? It was a good read and I look forward to listening to book 2...so obviously I don't need to say this but..buy the book because it is definitely worth it!
It is up there. Not in the top 10 but it definitely scored high.
Sandro. He was very masculine, honest, and focused on achieving his goals. I thought the steps he took to get to where he needed to be were quite admirable and I just love honest, masculine men, so there you have it.
She did a great job with the accent and the male parts. I think she is very talented and really made the book feel authentic and flow smoothly.
Hmmm good question...maybe something like "Fighting against it, only makes you fall harder for it"..not my best work, but hey its late and I'm sleepy.
I thought this was a really good deal. I really enjoyed listening to it. I found it very relaxing and for the price of this book you can't beat it. I highly recommend it.
