I truly enjoy Victoria Laurie as an author and was excited to audibly read my 1st book by her. While I enjoyed the story, I was not a big fan of the narration of any of the main characters. I always interpretted Abby in my reading of this series as more factual about her psychic moments so the interpretive reading of Abby's clarvoyant moments left something to be desired in my mind. Toward the end of the audible book I stopped noticing this issue but I think I will read the rest of the series.
Absolutely! I am a huge fan of female sci-fi/fantasy authors but many times the stories are a little too risqué to enjoy in a family setting (e.g. road trips). This is NOT an issue with this story (though your discretion on sharing the circumstances of Jay's den of rescued children).
I was surprised to find myself struggling with not wanting to hit pause on my Audible app throughout the entire book.
I am a huge fan of Michelle Sagara/West's stories. The depth of detail in her characters, world building, and description of each moment is amazing. I am always enjoy how she draws me into her stories.
If you are not a fan of long stories, this may not be the book or series for you.
I am a bookaholic, written and Audible, and I rank Helen Harper's Blood Destiny series up there with some of my all time favorite listens. I originally purchased Bloodfire (book #1) because it was on sale and oh my gosh I was looking for book 2 (Blood Destiny) Audible availability before I was even done with book 1.I can not recommend this series any more highly. If you like C.E Murphy, Anne Bishop, Patricia Briggs, Ann Aguirre, Diana Rowland, Kate Locke, etc... You will love he Blood Destiny series.
Mack Smith is an awesome kicka** h that is fun to read about and of course Coorigan is an excellent alpha H.
The narrator, Saskia Maarleveld, is fabulous! Please don't change her in the upcoming audio releases for books 3+.
I am not much of a reviewer because I would rather be reading and I tend to like a wide variety of authors. But I do read reviews to find new authors,so I hope this helps someone else find a new great author.
Too bad they do not have the whole series available at Audible but it appears (based on Amazon.com info) the audio version of books 3 through 5 will become available throughout the summer: Bloodrage (#3) a July 7, 2014, Blood Politics(#4) a July 7, 2014, and Boodlust(#5) - Aug. 5, 2014. And yet I still am too impatient so I will probably read them now and listen later...
