This is my favorite book in the series!!!!!! Zarek just breaks my heart.... and is so sexy at the same time! Fred Berman does a great job on this book. His voice is amazing and the character portrayal is perfect!!! He is my favorite narator so far with Holter Graham a very close second. This book is a MUST read as are all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books.
Way too much ceremony, procedure and nonsense speak......it's missing the story and character development this time. When they speak "carpathian" which obviously you can't understand and it goes on and on..... Too much. I really love this author and will read her other books in hopes this was just a miss and not a series that has gone too long. I just didn't care about the characters or what happened next. Really sad to write this review but it is what it is..... Plus, I like a strong male but these guys are getting boarderline Taliban.... Hope the next is better!!
The first two books were pretty good and you could "like" the characters. In this book they are constantly and I do mean constantly, rude, hostile and fowl. They are supposed to be a pack but they curse each other out every time they speak. For instance telling each other to "shut the f*** up", "I'll kick your f****** a**!" is a regular part of every conversation. I'm by no means a prude and have been known to let the f bomb fly on occasion but it seem like the author has gone out of her way to quote the fowlest sayings possible. Some language is necessary in the story but this is ridiculous. Even the woman are brash and rude, telling the males to "balls up". I just can't like these characters and don't really care what happens to them. I'm about 3/4 into the story and I am done. The only thing that I really like about this story is the narrator, she does a terrific job.
I love the BDB books and this is one of the best! Many different mini plots going on but all were easy to follow and engaging. For those listeners who said they couldn't keep up with all that was going on, I say listen to it again or pay better attention. I was completely engaged with every characters and every plot. All of the characters were in previous books so you should be familiar with them. It sure opened up the door for future books and I personally can't wait until their written. Just one word of advise, don't listen to the last part of the book in a public place. I was getting my nails done and had to shut the book off because it was making me cry, I just didn't need everyone to think I had lost my mind. I'm not normally an emotional person but this book was THAT good!!!! Keep up the great work J.R.!!!
Great story, lots of twists and turns! I also really like the way it ties into her Lords of the Underworld series but you can see how it will be it's own seperate series of stories. Can't wait for the next one!!!!!
Love Christine Feehan, love the series but this book didn't do it for me. I just couldn't get into the story or the characters. I have really like Sam in the other books but he seemed like a different person in this one?????? And, Thorn... yes thats what I'm calling her was just annoying. Calling Sam, "Sammy" and fluttering her eye lashes, really who does that? Not a kick butt heroin that's for sure. Also while the narrator has a beautifuly rich and deep voice he was NOT meant to do a female. His voice is beautiful and sexy for a man but his ladies sound breathy and "dumb" kind of Marilyn Monroe sings Happy Birthday Mr President (sorry I can't think of a better was to describe it). I'm looking forward to the next book in the series because I KNOW Christine Feehan can not strike out twice. She is an amazing author and I will continue to read her books.
Well I'm about 1/4 through listening to this book and I'm off to the book store to buy the paper back. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! Sherrilyn Kenyon's books are great and I just can't listen to this guy destroy this book any more. Really...... Didn't anyone listen to this before they released it!!!! Someone at McMillan should send Sherrilyn flowers to apologize for the slaughter!!!!
