I am a huge fan of the Otherworld series. This book completely redeemed my faith in Kelley because I felt her last novel (Living With the Dead) was a flop. I understand Clayton now and he has become my favorite character. (Previously, it was Savannah, if that helps any) I wish I read this before Bitten because it gives a huge amount of background to the stories of Elena. It should be listed as a prequel. The narrator was excellent; they couldn't have chosen better. You won't regret using a credit for this book.
I love this series, and I loved this book. That said, I must warn the avid audio book fan that they should stop now and not waste a credit. Listen to the preview; it's awful. I tried listening to this and I lasted about 10 minutes before going to the book store and buying it in paperback. So, continue with the series, but don't torment yourself with the flat reading.
I thought this book was going to be a classic fantasy vampire novel. I was wrong; It was classic romance. I hate romance novels and therefore was quite annoyed at wasting a credit on this. If you're not looking for romance, look elsewhere. If you're looking for vivid descriptions of the male anatomy this might be your cup of tea.
I have never heard a more horrible narrator. He has no gift of language and mispronounces Japanese and Spanish words alike. As someone who speaks both languages, I found it greatly distracting and agitating. He also expresses characters in gutteral voice that mimics a trachaeotomy. He does this for all characters, so it does not descern their gender or nationality. He is unable to keep his speech at a steady cantor, so he sounds almost surprised at times. His narration has done this book a great injustice.
It's a good enough story, but I can't get past the fact that the narration sounds like nails on a chalkboard. If you decide to read it, buy the novel, not the audiobook.
