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....

    "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.

    "unimpressed...kept waiting for it to draw me in..."

    I have read Sylvia Day before. I'm unsure if it was the dialogue and lack of character development that was lacking or if it was the performance that didn't work for me. I felt like some of the character voices were amateur imitations of John Wayne, Jack Nicholson, etc. It became distracting. Once that started to click with me the dialogue was lost. Interestingly it was the male characters that bothered me the most. Usually with a male performer it is the female voices they have trouble with. In an effort to make all the male characters sound different, I think he fell back onto imitations. I wanted to like the characters but felt they were very underdeveloped. At some points I felt lost and uninterested. I did finish it but only after everything else in my library was already finished.

    "Not really a new twist but I still liked it."

    This book is a nice read. It has lots of blistering romance and sex but a lot of action to keep you on your toes to. The charactors are believable and you start to really care about them. the narration is good to. def a book you should try and I plan and reading and reviewing the next one as well.

    "Great Story Bad Narration"

    The story is a new realm for me. The idea of angels in love is kind of a heady thing. I wanted to be able to immerse myself in this story the way I have in other paranormal romances, but I couldn't. The narrator has a nice voice, but he sounded like he was reading a text book half of the time. There are some narrators that can pull you in on the first sentence of a book, while it took me a few chapters to get used to him reading. Only the story line made me listen to the entire thing. At one point I wanted to give up and read the book, which I probably will do because I couldn't pay attention to the entire story line because I was obsessed with the way the narrator was reading the book. If you can get past the voice, then this is a great story, I loved the explanation of why his wings are tipped in crimson :-) The characters are very believable and relate-able. I will continue to listen to the series because I'm hooked on the story line I just hope the don't use the same narrator.
