    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Jill Redfield?

    no ive tried three and they go painstakingly slow forward....and the sexual abuse theme gets pityfull


    Has Entwined With You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes i must admit. i loved 50 shades but this one is just plain bad bad bad


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jill Redfield?

    actually i dislike Jill because of the book. so its not really her fault. its the books fault


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    i thought the first one was promising but after the third i call it quits. im not really into a first character wanking off to sexuall assault memories, not when it does not progress and get better. the story simply doesnt go anywhere

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    C.S. Friedman, acclaimed author of The Coldfire Trilogy, returns to the epic style which has made her one of the most popular fantasy writers in the genre. In this first book of the trilogy, Friedman introduces listeners to a world of high fantasy, replete with vampire-like magical powers, erotic interludes, treachery, war, sorcery, and a draconic creature of horrific power and evil that will have listeners eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series.

    Story

    This is my first C.S Friedman book that i have been listening to. My usual area of books are fantasy with a twist of humor and my normal comfort zone is David Eddings, Tamora Pierce, Anne Mccaffrey, Robert Lynn Asprin, Robert Jordan, Trudy Canavan.
    I tried out Feast of souls due to a sale here on Audible and this is my rewiew:

    The story is well written and well narrated. You follow the storyline quite well and easy and there are a lot of good introduktions to the universe, wich helps you make your own internal image about how the world is build. All in all exelent pennmanship and the narrator gets the high and lows of the story and catches it in her voice.

    But i have difficulties getting above 3 stars because i miss some things in the story. Kamala never becomes my antiheroine due to the fact that you never get close to her. Yes it is terrible that she was a child whore and you can write a lot of her distant emotions off to the fact that she was in that state. Hell you could probably give her 2 or 3 diagnosises due to that fact, but instead of inviting us inside Kamalas head and letting us explore har lack of emotions from the inside we get this blank shell of a person who periodicly shows sign of being a human being. The whole dilemma about being human and being a magister is just not very well written out in my opinion and the ethical part of it is just stated bluntly. I would have loved a bit more exploring about this antihero thing. Even when she is up close and personal with it it does not get to go skin deep but instead becomes a gushy love drama with same depht as the cinderella story and i find that to be a lack i must admit. it make the story go stale and never really reach the extraordinary.

    There are two scenes with sex in the book one rape and one due to love and i wonder why the passion that gets written out in theese scenes arent used in the rest of the book. It took me aback how much the author was able to make me live through theese scenes and how explicit she actuallly was and i must admit i didnt like theese scenes wich took me by surprice. I have no problem reading Sookie Stackhouse and 50 shades of grey wich is much more explicit, but the scenes in this book botheret me wich i pondered a lot about for some time. I figured out that the reason why they bothered me was that they stood out. The intensity in theese passages were 10 og 10 but the intencity in the rest of the book even the killing and slaughter scenes never got me over 5.

    all in all i ended up feeling that ste story had so much more potential. it wasnt bad but also not trulty alive for me, and i missed some humor (or irony) and some deeper emotions and deeper exploring of the ethical dilemmas. like the one in Trudy Canavans Dark Magicians trilogy


    If you managed to hang on this far then heads up to you. English is not my first language so sorry if i made some errors during the writing.

    Greetings from Denmark.
