After 13 books this final instalment felt completely out of place, as if the writer just went through the motions to conclude a story that she didn't enjoy anymore. The characters were shadows of their former selves, none exhibiting their usual characteristics that made me fall in love with them.It was also boring, the mundane details of Sookie's life were on the forefront and took up most of the time pushing the relationships and plot on the sidelines. I forgot what the story was about, so caught up with her checking her messages and emails. Her relationships as well were incredibly odd, her motivations, her love, it was as if none of the experiences she had in the past 12 books existed. What a pathetic end to this series. I wish I had never listened to it.
The narrator was so blaze, she didn't add in any life to the characters and I found myself disliking the story and finding it boring. That's when I realized it was the narrator who seemed to slog through it. Couldn't finish the audio book and will get the book at a store now.
No. I couldn't get through it because of the narration. The voice was boring and lifeless and had a weird saliva sound to it that annoyed me too much to continue.
I hope the book is re-recorded with another narrator, Amanda Ronconi would be brilliant for this series!
To be honest, I've read a lot of romance books and was hoping that the supernatural twist would make this book stand out....that's the only thing that stood out. I'm so tired of the big beautiful dominating man characters. More originality and depth would have helped a lot. Its not enough to have scarred pasts, you have to explore those insecurities and have the characters talk to each other, not just grope each other.
Yes, she was great! I thought she did a wonderful job in differentiating the characters and expressing their emotions.
Never marry a 16th century highlander.
*Spoilers*I found it ridiculous that the character would allow herself to be pushed around by the "your my woman" attitude and actually be turned on by it after her past relationship disaster. Just because a man kisses with passion, doesn't forgive his aggressive and dominating personality. Hawk compared her to his falcons and how he breaks them into submission, and ignoring his past 15 years of service to the king. You'd think that kind of character would understand not caging a person to their will. I was honestly rooting for Adam, hoping he would succeed, or that he would have wooed her by talking rather than sexual advances which were exactly what Hawk was doing. I mean come on, this guy is a powerful faery and he doesn't know that he's being a sleeze ball.The last straw was when Hawk kidnapped her after seeing her kiss Adam. That's how you win a woman! Shaking my head. I will definitely not be buying the next in the series.
Its up there as one of the best! Molly Harper is an incredible writer, who has so much fun with her characters and story that I couldn't help but fall in love with them all.
The humor. I've gone through so many vampire novels and they all take themselves so seriously that they exist in a world far removed from ours that I could never relate, but not this book, this book felt real and grounded and almost a Gilmore Girls with vampires novels. The characters are not suave, or obnoxiously over sexualized, they are down to earth and charming. Its about time vampires stopped wearing leather and started wearing joke tees.
There are so many good ones. My favourite scene was at the end, so I'm not going to spoil it for others, but let's just say it was not your typical vampire throw down, but just brilliant.
Vampires meet suburban life Gilmore's style.
Read this book! Jane is an incredible protagonist, I wish she was real so we could be friends. I want to live in the world that Molly Harper has created. None of the vampire books out there come close.
