I would definitely recommend this audiobook to everybody and I am because I read the book and found it very enjoyable, but adding the narrator's voice it came alive.
I liked the whole story, action, comedy, suspense are mixed beautifully with passionate moments.
I can't pick one :D
I think it was towards the end when Mark and Tyler were transporting the bomb away from the cruise ship, they were ready to selflessly sacrifice themselves to save so many and that brings to the forefront their courage and willingness to defend what they believed in, protect the innocent.
I've listened to all the books narrated by JD Hart and the versatility of his voice amazes me every time, but this one I think is the best yet. All the accents are perfectly rendered, the mood of the characters come across clearly, the various characters of different gender and nationalities are well defined. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
What made me keep listening to the story more than anything is the voice of Kitty Hendrix. Great nuances, pitches, and the way she portrayed the feelings of each character and situations they found themselves in is remarkable. The story is thrilling, every time my heart turned to its normal pace there was a twist in the story to make it beat fast again. I find it quite unbelievable that Meg, the main female character, learns to survive and do the things she did in such a short time, but I give her the benefit of the doubt. She is intelligent and strong, I loved her perseverance and drive to uncover the truth and close the case which was the cause of her husban's death, she wins despite the deadly obstacles thrown in her path. I like happy endings and there is a hint of that at the end.
Would I listen to another of Mr. Weston's books? Most likely, if Ms. Hendrix is the narrator.
At first I wasn't sure if the narrator's voice was really compatible with the story, but as I got more into the story I realized Ms. Parkin's narration was pretty good, showing emotions, the various characters were easy to recognize. This genre is not in my top five to read because of the rules and codes of the society of this era, the way the women of every class were treated, but the author created a world that once you step in, it is hard to leave. Ms. Pillow's writing style is quite engaging and the story of Wolf and Gen made me feel many emotions, especially frustration at the main characters and their miscommunication. It took many conflicts and much heartbreak to get them to see each other as they were meant to and finally have their HEA. I laughed at their antics as children, I cried at some pretty sad moments, I was cheering on when the men where in battle, and I got really mad at some of the secondary characters for their misguided meddling in the couple's lives. I am quite happy that I stuck with the story, would recommend it to the readers of this genre.
I loved this book when I read it a few years ago, but listening to it read by Braden Wright blew me away. Just the right amount of raspy with a healthy does of warmth, Mr. Wright's voice is the perfect choice for this story, it made me feel warm and tingly... and the singing he does... *sigh* I played those parts back a few times. The voices of the characters were well differentiated, I especially loved Iain's voice, also old Angus' voice. The emotions came thru clearly which for me is important. I find nothing worse when I hear the word but not the emotion behind it. This story of Iain and Page is a a good mix of romance, mystery, betrayal, redemption, revenge and a dash of hilarity ending with a HEA. Thank you for a great listening experience.
Loved the story of Mirek and Riona. In the previous book, I didn't really like Riona, but she redeemed herself in this one. She is strong, funny, mischievous and fun loving, keeping Mirek on his toes after scaring him by falling into a coma. Mirek is so lovable and fun, he is so loyal to her, caring for her for months. Loved their banter, their bedroom talk. Loved how the story unfolded and it wasn't predictable, which made the book more exciting. I like that in every book in the series we get to read beyond the HEA ending of the couple from previous books and the further we get into the series the more of the big picture is revealed.
I wasn't sure about Melissa Barr's voice at the beginning, but she drew me into the story with her various voices and enthusiasm. Really enjoyed her telling the story.
Loved this book in the series. I love how the author follows up on the characters in the series and we see how the main characters in the previous books fare and some events from a different perspective. The world of then Dragon Lords becomes more clear and complex at the same time. Kendall and Alex, the main characters in this book have great chemistry despite being from different worlds. A hopeless situation becomes a love story to last centuries. At the end I had to laugh out loud, Ms. Pillow took the words right out of my mind... "Wait! What about Morgan?" Loved listening to Mason Lloyd's voice, such a perfect choice for book. Another great listening experience! Thank you!
Loved this book. Ms. Gilbert's experiences and opinions are masterfully told in her own awesome voice. I could listen for hours and did. The stories were various and a great mix, some made me laugh out loud, some made me think as they told great truths, and some were I was nodding my head saying YES that's right. I can't pick a favourite part, they all have something to offer to the heart and mind of those willing to listen AND hear the messages behind them. I totally recommend this audio experience with 5 stars. Looking forward to more.
As with the other stories I listened to in the Dragon Lords series I loved the premise, a little scifi with a medieval feel to it. This pairing is a bit easier for the fact that Aeron finds out from the beginning that Bron is a dragon shifter. But that doesn't mean it will be easy for them to come to common ground. She is a courageous woman, even if she doesn't think so at times, crossing the galaxy to help save a planet from annihilation. Loved her sister and her wild ways and I hope to listen to her story next. And Bron... sigh... I want a Drague Lord too.
Melissa Barr's voice is really nice, perfect for the female characters, but I think it falls a bit short for the male characters, especially these dragon warriors where I would expect to hear a deeper pitch.
A sweet story about Laroue, a young woman with an unusual gift, she sees dead people and helps them cross over. Humour, mystery, some suspense and sleuthing mixed with some light romance makes this an enjoyable story. Listening to it narrated by Elisabeth Klett made it even more so. Perfect voice for this. Loved Ms. Klett's versatile voice, expressive and right pitch for each character. Loved the dynamics between Laroue and Mindy, the wild, and somewhat reckless best friend. And the ghosts that surround her are an interesting mix. The ending is hinting at more books to come, I will be checking them out.
I loved the story, the premise of this book. Alasdair is a Highlander warrior, with honour and loyalty, loved the way he is portrayed. Gwyneth, the English lady, who saves his life at the beginning of the story, is not as bright and she behaves as expected of a haughty aristocrat even though she is banished from her title and wealth. Loved the twists the story took and toward the end when I thought it was smooth sailing toward HEA, Ms. Sinclair threw me for a loop, loved it. Looking forward to the next one.
Loved Andrew Bryan's voice, the different accents, and how I could discern the various characters. The narration had some aspects that bugged me, when not in dialogue the narrating had no punctuation, most of the time ending the sentences with a questioning tone; also in some places the tone didn't match what the character said. Although I loved Alasdair's voice, his voice boomed when he was mad or whispering or just talking.
Just as the first book, this one too is very entertaining. I love Ms. Gilbert's voice, such a pleasure to listen to her while talking about her real life experiences. She is hilariously irreverent, has opinions with which I agree on most things. This book made me laugh, think, nod and shake my head, but most of all I find it uplifting. I totally recommend it, as I do the first one, 'RAVING VIOLET". I am looking forward to Swami Soup. Thank you Ms. Gilbert!
