I should start by saying that I love sci-fi and romance mixed with a good twisting plot. So when I chose this book I assumed that not having the Sci-Fi won’t be that bad since I still get 2 out of 3.
(Spoiler alert you might want to stop reading now)...
I was wrong - there is NO romance either (so that left me with 1 out of 3), the reason I said spoiler alert was because maybe there are some hopeless listeners out there who will listen to the whole 11hours of this book hoping that the romance is around the corner – well it ain’t.
So for the remaining 1 (twisting plot), the book (for me personally) was slow to pick up and didn’t really until the last 1.5h (which makes it 9.5h of not very satisfying listen). The twist was alright but I just didn't care at that point. There were too many long description of going to work, working, coming back home etc.
The book has 2 main characters that make stupid decisions and end up paying for them so it imitates the life of most folks with the knack for stupidity. Personally, I don’t like those story lines in movies or books (I will add that I don’t like the show “weeds” for this same reason so if you like that show ignore my long comment).
This book started being interesting from the first 5minutes.
It became absolutely captivating couldn’t stop listening at about 4 hours in.
The magic in this book is good.
The romance in this book is light.
The intrigue is just right!
The narrator was good but not great.
This is one of those books that you are really sad when they end so the next day after it ended I re-listened to the last few chapters :)
Too bad there seems to be only one more book in the series in audible.
LOVED it and yes it is worth the credit
both stories are hot!
Loved them each and they were different so I enjoyed listening to them one after another.
Nice world created by the writer not too detailed where you get bored and put the speed to x2 and not bland enough making whish for more details.
Not a romance but a story about a witch, who leads a fairly regular life (with very little crush over some men in her life without anything actually happening).
Easy listen not overly exciting but keeps things light and interesting.
The narration was alright, was a bit hard to tell the characters apart at times.
Not sure I would buy the next book in this series (bought this one at a sale)
The story is llllongggg. The high and low points are not smooth transitions in the book.
The characters are lacking.
The male character was not my type and the female was too concerned with propriety etc.
The lack of communication between the couple which was the reason behind their emotional pain was annoying (just a personal preference I hate when soooo many things are misunderstood and unsaid - just speak up)
The emotions and the sex were a bit mixed by the author as if they are one in the same
!!!! Spoiler alert:
The male character is planning for 15 years to marry lady A, then as he is forced by circumstances to marry lady B - which he has tons of sex with - he is in love with her forgetting about lady A completely?
This story drags a bit and was nothing special whereby I was captivated and couldn't put the book down.
I read the prequal which was cute and short but I doubt I will read book 2.
This is a prequel to the series. This was cute, short and different from the usual setup.
I already listened to the 1st story in the series and liked it much less.
This was a very slow to start book. About 1/3 into the story it picked up and was GREAT!
The narration was good as always.
This is not as good as the first story in the Scoundrels but it is still pretty good.
The second half of the book picked up and was actually fun and interesting but the first half was painful!
Bought this book at a sale and had a great time listening to it. The story line was fun and exciting (my first book in this series but after this one I will certainly buy more).
The narrator is amazing!!!
Story line has romance, action, plot twists and fun characters.
Love it !
I got this book on a sale and it was worth it! I even think that this book might be worth a credit. All the elements are here, romance, good hero's, magical powers, political intrigue and some mention of the characters from the first book. I read this book before reading the first one and it didn't get in the way at all.
It is not a 5 star because there were a bit too many emotions and their description had several redundant repetitions. The end was a bit weak although epic enough to get 4 stars. The heroine was neither dumb nor weak and had a good back bone which at times lacks in such books – that was a pleasant surprise. The side characters had nice story lines as well.
I am planning on buying the 1st book in the series.
