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....

    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!

    "I liked it."
    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Luke Daniels's performance. I liked how he distinguished between narration and characters, and his differentiation in the characters. Generally also, I liked his voice in this. I would look for Luke Daniels narration in other audio books.


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely would not call this an epic saga by any means, but I did enjoy this story and I'm looking forward to the next two books. This book handled angels and vampires and lycans a bit differently and kept me interested. This book builds the characters nicely for the next books and makes you interested in what happens with them - although I'm disappointed in the change of narrator.

    "Interesting and fun read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was recommended to me and I would recommend it to a friend. I think it's an interesting well written story. Sylvia Day always does a great job of entertaining and writing believable stories/relationships.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but I did like his voice of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be nice if both of these books were narrated by the same person. (Luke Daniels) When listening to the series you get use to the voices and when you switch narrators it because difficult to know who is talking at times.

    "Loved it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and have. I liked the characters and the inner emotional battles going on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Touch of Crimson?

    Lindsey's transformation.


    Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Oh yes, I really love his voice, each character was easy to tell apart. Each one had a life due to his voice. I really enjoyed Eddy Lindsey's dad. Every time I found myself smiling. I am more likely to buy a book read by Luke Daniels.
    He was so easy to listen to and that voice was like honey pouring over you the whole time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times. But, no tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked it so much I am looking for the rest in the set.

    Story
    "Powerful Strugle between Angels and Vamps"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Touch of Crimson to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The Audio book brought more action, excitement, and humor to the story than the print version. Luke Daniels did a great job bringing the Arc Angels story to light.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adrian, The Captain of the Arc Angels character was very popular in this book. I also liked Elijah, the Lycan, Who had Alpha in him.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any of Luke Daniels work before, but I felt he did a great job narrating this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. I felt one of the most important areas in the book was at the beginning when Adrian and Elijah, were attacked in the Helicopter by the infected Vampire. This was the first occurrence of the vampire virus and this occurrence pitted the Arc angels against the Vamps.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is the beginning of a great series and I can't wait to get deeper into the battle between the Angels, Vampires, and Lycans. It is obvious that there is a conspiracy developing and I love the direction.

    "Decent intro book"

    This book is about a girl who doesn't know why she is faster than normal and can pick out 'evil' people, but she eventually finds out all about angels, demons, vampires, and lycans. You see, she shares a soul with Shadoe, who brought down the angel Adrian through love and seduction and comes back to him time after time. The way this book ends makes me think the sequel is going to be better than the first book.

    "An under $10.00 listen."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book, like I said it was an under $10.00 listen while waiting on a new credit.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sylvia Day? Why or why not?

    I do listen to Sylvia Day, I have found much better supernatural listens from other authors though...this was kind of a fluff listen, not much for the brain..all hunk and sex mostly.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked Shadoe's and Lindsay's confrontation....Lindsay showed her spunk even then...


    Did A Touch of Crimson inspire you to do anything?

    No inspiration from this listen....


    Any additional comments?

    I may continue on with the trilogy when I need another cheap listen....I am not obsessed with getting to the next two listens any time soon.
