If you enjoyed the first two audio books in this series you will like this book as well. Of course book 1 is my favorite, but I think I like this one more than book 2.
(Unlike other reviewers I won't spoil the plot with a long winded review.)
There were times that Nick's voice reminded my of Trey, but when they were in the same scene you could definitely tell the difference. Props to the narrator on her many voices!
I did laugh and found myself smiling a lot as I listened to the story.
Is it weird that I finished the book today and want to listen to the story all over again?
There were many times the author gave too much superfluous information. I found myself wondering if she was trying to add to her word count. Like in high school when your english teacher wants a 200 word paper, but you've only thought of 100 words.
I should have stopped in the first chapter when the heroine needs to bandage up the hero so the character thinks to herself how glad she is to have medical supplies in her home. Then proceeds to explain why she has medical supplies, because she cut her hand open in the past. The author then explains how the character didn't have insurance, she had to wrap towels around her hand, drive herself to a store, etc. And then the author proceeds to tell us more about the cut on the heroine's hand and how it bled for two hours.
Is anyone as tired as me at hearing the word Organic? By the end of the book I didn't need to be reminded that the meal the characters were making consisted of organic chicken and organic vegetables.
I was tempted to read book 2 only to discover what Amy is, but I peeked at spoilers on GoodReads and I am so glad that I did.
I know PNR requires a suspension of belief at times, but this was too much. The insta-love after 36hrs seemed unbelievable in book 1.
This was my first time with this narrator - I have no complaints.
The editor should have caught the many times that the author repeats the same information, be it in the same scene or later in the book. It happened many times so I couldn't help but notice.
This book should be read as part of the continuing story arc, but I did find myself skipping over scenes where Chase was alone with his own thoughts, because he kept thinking the same things again & again.
It seemed like 3/4 of this book was pretty depressing. I haven't finished the series yet, but so far this has been my least favorite.
I usually like the narrator's male voices, not so much his female voices. Chase had 2 accents, his natural irish one and then his more modern angry voice. I didn't like either.
I was inspired to create lots of bookmarks so I could skip to the parts I like if I ever re-listen to this book.
The occasional scenes with Nix and Regin's humor helps the story along. I was glad to see Lothaire was active in this book.
I have listened to this book too many times to admit.
Poor murderous Kaleb, how my heart broke for you. I thought his history with Sahara was wonderful. His actions spoke so much regarding: Sahara, Judd & the priest, the net, the world, etc.
Whenever Kaleb confessed to Sahara (about anything & everything.)
Do not start the series with this book. You should not read these books out of order. There is a huge story arc spanning many books and you will spoil it for yourself if you don't begin with the first book.
People who like to hear the main character thinking about how "hard up" she is from the moment the book begins.
Maybe not have the main character thinking about sex constantly in the first 10 minutes of the book. I got it lady, you want sex, but you're in an important meeting, get your hormones under control.
Had this book been about a hetero couple I would have felt the same way. Be the main character male or female, it wouldn't matter.
I only listened to ten minutes, but I didn't find anything wrong with the narrator during that time.
The very beginning of this book spoiled it for me. It allowed me to instantly know where this book was headed. Normally, I am horrible at predicting a plot line and I'm oblivious to foreshadowing, but the author made many things blatantly obvious.
Why add Vladd and Leila's wedding to this book? It didn't add to the story. Instead it distracted from the story and made me wonder if the author was trying to increase her sales of the 3rd Vladd & Leila book. Even though I love Vladd it felt like filler and a sales pitch combined.
I'm not sure. I love the Night Huntress series, but the story lines went down hill in later books and this last book really wasn't that great. ...It could have been a great story. There are many ways that the author could have improved this book.
A better question would be: Why does Bones' voice change from book to book? In book one Bones reminded me of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. I was content with his voice in books 2-6. Then the Christmas novella came out and I assumed Bone's voice was weird because he was possessed by a demon for most of the story, but he has the same weird voice for book 7 too.
Normally after listening to a brand new story about Cat & Bones, I want to listen to the story again. Not this time. Maybe not for a long, long time.
Tate? Really? Bones is stuck with Tate on a daily basis? I would have preferred that anonymous sperm had been used or that Cat had kept her mouth shut and told Tate nothing. Or better yet, even if they told Tate the truth, if Cat & Bones had told him to get lost. Tate chose to become a vampire & had every opportunity to freeze his sperm ahead of time if had wanted the chance to be a parent. Cat never felt she a choice to have children and unlike Tate she didn't have time to plan before she became a vampire. Which one of the males is Katie to consider her Dad? Does she now have two fathers? Is Bones more of a step-parent?
Listen to the sample before purchasing this book. I have tried to listen to this book four times, but I can't seem to get past the first 20 minutes. I thought it was the narrator's voice that was rubbed me wrong, but this time I paid close attention to the author's words and I realized that part of the problem is that the beginning of this book is boring. Maybe the story gets better, but I doubt I'll give it a 5th try.
A different narrator.
I might have enjoyed the parts where the beast took over if the story was still told form Jane's pov (even if the animal was in control.) I ended up skipping over the beast's bits of the story.
That depends on how often the beast's pov appears in the series.
I liked the world building and the characters. I would be tempted to buy more from this series if it weren't for the beast's pov.
