If Hamilton gave a damn. It seems as though she just wrote the book to kill time. Judging from her blog I believe she lost interest in this series and this book proved it. Maybe she had a contractual obligation to write this book?
Give it a plot or not write it. She should have simply "not bothered" I wasted my time and credit.
The narrator seemed confused as to who had what accent. Even Claudia Black with her accent gave Merry an American accent, Charlotte Hill had Merry sounding Irish or Scottish (hell or both!)
She made Ivy sound like a leprechaun or demi fey! She pronounced it as Evie once then pronounced it as Ivy all in the same sentence/paragraph!
Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlotte Hill lol.
I could have done without the Hardcore Bromance (shy glances, crying and holding hands)...
I understand the need for explaining certain things but it just seemed repetitive. At first things were repeated from the other books reminding us of some of the characters backgrounds then it seemed as though Merry thoughts were being repeated several times. There was no story line just some brief situations. It's almost as though this book wasn't written by Laurell K. Hamilton. AND then she has the nerve to leave the possibility open for another book. The birth of the babies was a summary and It ended with a summary. Blah
Not bad, but I'm accustomed to Narrator Emily Shaffer's voice performing as teenage characters where as in this book the characters are in their mid to late twenties. The character of Mae (in my opinion) should sound a bit older and more mature.
With every book I listen to Anita gets more and more hypocritical! It's painful! I find myself yelling and my iPhone as if it's Anita "shut up!!!" I am interested in the story but I don't know if I can tolerate Anita! One minute she's like "she wouldn't feel anything if she kills someone or something the next minute she's vomiting and upset that one of the werewolves killed someone!!! Can you say HYPOCRITE!!! I know people are complicated and she's a fictional character but I'm listening to these Anita Blake books and Im getting tired of her and her personality! HYPOCRITE!!! LOL
Also you see some similarities in Asher and Reese (from the Merideth Gentry series)
I dunno I'm getting bored with this series and I'm only on book 8 of 19 :-/
I look forward to the next book Night Veil 07/05/2011!!! =) Hopefully the date is right!
Every character captures you as you read, I love the way you get a small intro to each character's past!!!! I can't wait for the next one!
Why the hell does Jaenelle have a damn Irish or Scottish accent!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I don't get it!!! Why the change?
I love the story but the narrator was irritating to listen to!!! I mean it's annoying enough that Rose talks out of her butt though out half the story on top of that we had to listen to Khristine Hvam yap, whine and bitch urgh ANNOYING!!! I'm glad to see there's a new narrator for both books 4 & 5!!! Yay!!! I'm listening it to now and she seems much better and now that Rose is 18 this narrator's voice gives Rose a more mature voice.... THANK YOU!!!!!
I didn't hate it! I'm actually in the process of listening to book 2... The sex gets annoying after awhile though lol
Ick... I didn't like this book. I didn't purchase the other two! I couldn't take Ziggy and Dalhia's voices... I couldn't deal with it... I read book 2's synopsis I said to myself "oh hellllll no I will not do this to myself again" LOL No Thank you!!!
I am still in the process of listening to this book. So far it's good, my only problem is the main female character Shea OMG she's sooooooo annoying I mean I understand she had a hard life but damn!!!! You'll see! The story is good though I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
