I have never been this disappointed in an audio book. Well, not so much the BOOK but the
READER! I listened to the first chapter and just couldn't go any further. No only does the reader take a very AUDIBLE catch breath before almost every sentence, but he doesn't change his voice, attitude or characterization for ANY of the characters! If I'd wanted just to be read to - any one of my male relatives would have done. A REALLY good audio book reader brings the characters to life - but not this guy. If you really want to hear how it SHOULD be done and you like vampire stories - check our Kiss of Midnight read by Hillary Huber. SHE knows how to bring characters to life!
This book was an enormous let down. I'm sure the book itself is good, but the reader absolutely ruined it for me!
This is a great author. The first book was good - I'm on the third one and they keep getting better. Highly recommend the series. You'll fall in love with the brotherhood.
I started with book 3 because it was on sale and had to go back to book one and two. This is the BEST vampire series I have listen to. Love it love it! get this series. Wrath the Great Blind King, the dark lover of my dreams. J.R made them more like human beings, just a different species, they don't feed on humans they have to feed on their own kind. female to male and vice a versa. They eat and drink regular food and drink. they do not heal as fast as the regular vampire series, but they do heal in 48 hours. J.R. made them a little more humanistic. That's what I love about it!
This book is not complicated. It is just plain vampire fun. I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator is really good for this book and helps make listening to the book more interesting.
I was in love with the BDB series well before I started getting into audio books, and for the most part that hasn't waivered, so if you're looking for a great para-romance, you've found it.
What I had to review about was that I think Jim Frangione is the BEST narrator out there. I wish that there were more like him. He doesn't overdo the accents (and Marissa's could EASILY be overdone), he has a lovely voice, and I really wish some of the other para-romance authors out there (Suz Brockmann?!?!) would pick him up to read their work.
It is so incredible that this is her first series. I cannot wait to hear what she writes next. She is so talented!! This series has it all. You must read. But beware for some very intense love. I cant wait for Lover mine.
I wasn't sure that I was going to enjoy this series but it I couldn't stop listening to this book. I also bought the book series and read them when I had free time. I Love the BDB series. I hope JR Ward continues to write about the brothers as more brothers join. I love it... I highly recommend this series.
I like some vampire books but can definitely do without romance novels of any kind. Sigh.. unrequited and angst just isn't my cup of tea
