This is a GAY romance and it's narrated by a woman. I am seriously disappointed in this audible book. I Love this story, I was so looking forward to having this in my audible library as well as my ebook library. I have read it many time - Its one of my all time favorite Gay Romance novels. Hell, its one of my all time favorite romance novels regardless of genre. A go-to read when I want a pull your heartstrings romance with HEA. And I just can't listen to a woman read it, I could just weep. I do understand having the same narrator for a series when the same lead characters are the main in each book, but the same narrator just because the Author grouped the books as a series is totally ridiculous! Joey's complete series is a number of different couples and their relationship, but somebody decided because it was a "series" they only needed one narrator. Sigh........Didn't anybody take the time to find out what the story line was before contracting the narrator? I love this story so much that I tried to overcome a woman's voice reading for male characters, but I could not take it. I will be asking for my money back. I hope that Audible will realize their error and will re-release this book with a male narrator. I will gladly repurchase if that ever happens.
Surreal, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, thriller.
All I can say is Wow!
I love books that throw me for a loop. Pines did that and more.
Hells yeah, I would listen to Midnight Riot again, and again.
Ben Aaronovitch has created a rich, and colorful world of magical London. I just hope that the historical asides that are presented in this book (i.e. St. Paul's Church called the actors church) are fact. I love learning new things about such an amazing city.
The plot was well written, kept you guessing all along, and would they catch/stop the killer? Knowing that this was the first in a series I had a few moments of panic thinking that they would not finish up the story line in just one book. And while the world and the people in it continue in the next book, this story line concludes well.
Any of the West End females, Kobna has the snarky attitude down pat.
It is a book that you can put aside, and get some sleep, but it's one that you will want to listen to straight through if you can. (Unlike the Dresden files, where you sometime practically beg for the book to come to an end so the intensity will abate, this series has pauses that allow you to relax and breath again)
I will be adding Ben Aaronovitch to my must have authors list.
Is there any story line Rhys Ford can't write? I'd say no.
Paranormal investigator Wolf meets/investigates ghost hotel owner Tristan and all hell breaks loose. Literally! So what's a Hellsinger to do? Deny, deny, deny, and fall in love anyway.
And I could listen to Tristan James read a phone book and enjoy the experience. Probably my favorite narrator.
Fun is not an adjective that is generally used in describing a Josh Lanyon novel, but when your leads are drunk and being chased by a guy in a mummy costume, you have to use that very word: Fun.
This is titled as book 1, but unfortunately so far Josh has not come out with a 2nd book (yet) I live in hope, and wait to see where Drew and Fraser's lives will lead.
My first introduction to John Scalzi was "Red Shirt" which I couldn't get more than 8 minutes into, so I was reluctant to purchase this novel. I'm glad I took the chance.
This was a great novel. A very interesting premise, well executed story, and the bonus story was the perfect, way to elaborate on the back ground without bogging down the main story.
Best of all; there was no (a) said, (b) said.....repeat ad nauseam.
When you think your in a rut, sometimes you need to look at the world with new eyes.
Sivan and Walter, are an established couple - going thru a change in their lives, and loves.
I loved that the main characters were all in their 40's. You rarely have m/m romance with both leads older than 20 something. Refreshing change, and another top notch story from Mary Calmes
Richard Kadrey has an impressive imagination, and his worlds are very well thought out.
A tattooed man, and a blind demon hunter team up to take a book back from hell, and well all hell breaks loose. Once you get past the strangeness of the first chapter (only 8:44 minutes) the story unfolds nicely. Our hero, his best friend, and a princess from another dimension/world walk willingly into hell, just for our pleasure.
Austin has a job he loves, and a chance to verify the existence of Lee wine, that would set his career for life, but death has a way of derailing his plans, and love seems to crawl into his heart by accident.
As I said in the headline - this story is my all around favorite JL book. All his books are exceptional, but this one touches me deeply - and I really can't tell you exactly why.
Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not feel that Syren Rua sounded like Hannibal Lector. Syren is a complicated character, and I feel that Renard Pasquale did a great job of bringing him to life. Some parts of the story were a little hard to take, but you cheer for Syren in the end. I liked the story and the narration.
After the abysmal character of Gabe in book 1, I was somewhat hesitant to get the rest of the series, but Sinner. Savior redeemed the series for me. Pablo & Shane are a great pairing. And Renard Pasquale does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.
