Publisher's Summary

Upon their grandmother's death, Tristan Northland and his twin, Will, come into possession of her Book of Shadows and the knowledge that their family is responsible for a centuries-old curse. Determined to right the ancient wrong, Tristan sets off across the ocean to reverse the dark magic that affects the Sterling family to this day.

Benjamin Sterling might not be happy with his life, but it is predictable - at least until Tristan Northland shows up in his office, unannounced and with nowhere to stay. He has plenty of reason to distrust witches and Northlands, but instead of caution, he experiences two unexpected emotions: hope and love.

    "Page Turner???"

    This is the only audiobook I've listened to where I could hear the narrator turning the pages. I'm glad he got over the cold he obviously had in the early part of the book but hearing British characters read in a flat American voice did nothing for the story. The story itself was only OK.

    "Narrator is not good at all!"

    This narrator should not be doing this...the story is very good, but it's only as good as the person is telling the story.

    Story
    "Reader makes the difference"

    Not a bad story but the reader did not have ANY distinction between voices. Since one character was English and one was American, it should have been easy to tell which was which. No excuse for that in my opinion. I spent way too much energy keeping track of who said what.

    Story
    "Loved this!!!"

    The other reviews complained about this book. In my opinion it was fabulous. Yes it is full of sex, but it is NOT over done. The sex flows well with the story line and is used to emphasize the relationships in the book and were done beautifully. The audio was lacking in the fact that you can tell it was recorded in a home. You can here the pages, the clicks from where the reader stopped and started the recording, and a few time you can here other people and phone ringing in the background. This is just a poor editing job by the producer/engineer but doesn't detract from this lovely story.

    "Not bad"

    The story and its pagan rituals are interesting to say the least, but the narration is absolutely horrendous! There is no pauses where there should be, like paragraph breaks, leaving confusion on what just happened.

    The story would have been much more engaging if the narration was better.

    Story
    "Could be a good series"

    First and foremost for some reason this audio was added later then the next story "Betrayed", listen or read this one first.
    I bought it as a in between preternatural listen as I waited for my monthly credit. Tristan and Benjamin's story is not bad. I liked that it was straight forward and clear. I usually go for lycan stories but don't usually care for witches as main characters. But Tristan being the witch worked out fine. He is a bit of a do gooder and does go the distance to right a wrong.
    The narrator could have delivered so much better. And yes its what makes the story not as good.
    It is my first "gay romance" story and I hate that it has to be classified as a "gay romance" because it is, bottom line a love story. Your main characters are two men that you will want to get together. There are detailed sex scenes so "watch out" and enjoy.

    "It was just ok."

    I realize this is a romance novel so the story line is set to provide a scenery for sex scenes. However, I have read good romance novels and this isn't. Almost all of the romance scenes were forced. By the end of the book it was clear to me that the author didn't think she had met her sex quota because the sex scenes were constant and out of place. It started out very well but by the end, it definitely fell off.

    "Typically mediocre"

    There wasn't anything really bad about this book, but there wasn't really anything great about it either.there was no time spent on characterization and nothing worth remembering. Not bad but completely forgetable.

    Story
    "Good story but bad narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The monatone narrator. The narrator has a very nice voice, but he does almost nothing to distinguish the characters. It is very boring and not enjoyable. For example, Tristan and Will are British. It would have done wonders for the story if he could have done a British accents as so many other narrator have. This is good story, but get the book to read and stay away from the audio version.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This is one of those "bonded mate" tails. It has great romance and an OK, but predictable story. A little more action would have been nice.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Absolutely no feeling in the narration. And it was a bad production with awkward transitions in places.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this on sale so I'm grateful I didn't waste a credit on it.

    "Could have been better"

    This book has a great story line, a bit predictable but great non the less. It's a lovely emotional romance story with just a tad of action thrown in now and then for spice and pleanty of handsome charaters. What spoiled it was the choice of narator. Now the narator himelf isn't bad but he just sounds far too old to be acting the part of young men. There is no difference between charaters and sometimes the sentences are a little stilted, but not to any great amount and definately forgiveable. All in all it's certainly a worthwhile addition to any LGBT collection, and something that you could happily listen to many times.
