Publisher's Summary

An angel with immense power and insatiable desire, Adrian Mitchell leads an elite Special Ops unit of the seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen - angels who have become vampires - and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.

But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn’t remember him. This time he won’t let her go.

With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson knows only that she can’t help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There’s more at stake than her love and her life - she could lose her very soul....

    Too many characters. Too hard to follow. I usually live this author, maybe I will try again.

    "Incredible storyline"

    This is my first reading this type of story and to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. Maybe it's because Sylvia Day is a great writer. I have enjoyed all her work. I going to start the next book in this series.

    "The best... I loved it"

    I sooo loved this audio book. Luke did a fantastic job. Sylvia Day never disappoints, her books are always well written and the storyline keeps you hooked from the first chapter. The collaboration between Sylvia and Luke really brought it home.

    Story
    "A Decent Story!"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Sylvia Day? Why or why not?

    Yes, I love PNR's and this story tick off all the components I look for in a good PNR. It had a good plot, great characters, hot sex scenes and action.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene where Adrian realizes he no longer loves Shadoe the way he loves Lindsay and will do what it takes to free Shadoe's soul from Lindsay's body. It was both happy and sad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, the plot and characters kept me listening; however, there were times the story felt disjointed and became a little confusing. However, I liked the story enough and will continue the series.

    Story
    "Not what I expected from Sylvia Day"
    Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Luke Daniels?

    I have read the Crossfire series but this book is nowhere in the same league. Narration was fine, the story a bit silly.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not decided yet.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    The narrator was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed, very disappointed, I expected so much more from this author.


    Any additional comments?

    I will choose Sylvia Day books more carefully in the future.

    Story
    "Great story bad language (X-RATED)"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I think Sylvia Day could have told this story just as well without all the sex and curse words. I understand some situations cursing is magnifying but in this book it is so obligatory I may as well purchase an erotic book. This story is such a great story there is no need to add all the graphic visuals and constant cursing. Take a page from Kevin Hearne and curse only on occasion to increase the impact of it. Beware if you have children. If your listening in your car with your kids this book is well beyond their age group for listening. I would be hesitant to even listen around a 12 year old let alone my own mom and dad. I wish she had taken the high road and put a warning at the beginning of the book so I would not have started listening to this on the road with my six year old son in the car. I will more than likely not buy the next few books in the series just because I have never really enjoyed semi erotica books. The story is so well molded I really wish she had not gone overboard with the language and sexual references/descriptions.

    Luke Daniels is great in this though. He really knows how to narrate a story. I think he could read stereo instructions and make people want to listen to that over and over.


    Would you recommend A Touch of Crimson to your friends? Why or why not?

    The single and only reason I would not recommend this book is because of the language/sex references. A good author can forgo most of that with better words. Lazy writing is not worth the money. But the story over all is great. Sadly you spend all your time on sexual references in this book rather than the story itself.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    He can perform any character. It is really hard to pin down a favorite with him.


    Did A Touch of Crimson inspire you to do anything?

    No it did not but I suspect a teenage boy would be inspired to do something with this book. Sadly it would not be writing.

    Story
    "spoilers"

    ** spoiler alert ** After reading the Crossfire series I had high hopes for this book...
    while the story was good I just found it lacking details. It could have been so much better and I think seeing the potential in it ruined what was actually there.

    For the most part its a good book, but it's not something that I'll be continuing on with. It didn't keep my attention and there really isn't anything significant that happens as far as action, or even romance. A few small trysts in the bedroom and mentions of fights, but where are the details?
    For all the talk about Adrian being a hunter and always in the field there was no action. If he is SO worried about them changing her over, why didn't he try to get there to stop it instead of wondering if it happened and a few weeks later the enemy just drops her off at the doorstep no questions asked?! Why did Shadoe just give up in the end without a fight after holding on for centuries?
    It just didn't work for me, but that's not to say that it doesn't appeal to other people - I just prefer lots of action in my books!

    Where does A Touch of Crimson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I could NOT put this book down. I did not write, sleep, or get anything other than reading accomplished for the past two days!!! Cannot WAIT to get my hands on the next book!
