J.R. Ward's series is unique and powerful and unlike anything on the market. I have read and then listened to her books. Her plots are gripping and she creates believable characters. However, the books lacks because of the narrator. He sounds like he is reading a text book! I have purchased all there are in the series mainly for the fact that I love Ward's books and I am an impulsive buyer and though I have not regretted my purchase, I have a hard time with some of the scenes. I am almost finished with the Sixth book in the series and the narrator seems to be getting somewhat better although I think at this point I may just be getting used to him. For my future purchases I would never buy a book narrated by Jim Frangione. The only reason I stuck to this one is that I have read them before. Listen to the sample before you buy. If it does not blow your skirt up, buy the book and read it!
First of all you have an author like Feehan who is consistently great. Her books are well thought out and the characters come alive. I have re-listened to her book more times than I can count. They are a soulace when I do not want to be discouraged. I retouch them weekly! The narrator, Tom Stechschulte, is so good I have purchaed book read by him and not knowing at all what the book is about. Though Feehan is a great author the combonation of Stechschulte is astounding! I cannot say enough praise. Each character has a distinct voice and accent. Feehan's characters come to life! The wonderful thing about this book is that it is a part of a series and I can't wait for more.
