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....

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    If you could sum up A Touch of Crimson in three words, what would they be?

    Another great series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite.


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

    First listen and he did fine.


    Any additional comments?

    It is at such a good price I didn't use a credit. If you like this genre of book then I think you'll be well pleased with this one. It is the first book in the series and I'm already looking foward to getting the next one.

    Story
    "Overshadowed by my dislike of the narrator"

    This is my second attempt at a Luke Daniels narration. The first one was "eh" - but I attributed that to the novel. His work was fine. But this time, I can not even get past the first 10 minutes of the story. I jumped ahead to see if I could take it later in the story, and if his overly macho tone would have settled down, but it just isn't working for me. I don't think he is a bad narrator. I just think his tone is wrong for me to listen to. I have to return this audiobook. I may try to read it instead, since I like the premise.

    Story
    "Angels, Vampires, and Lycans oh my!"
    Where does A Touch of Crimson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top ten. Most of my top ten are wriitten by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Dark Hunter series or CoN series read by Holter Graham) or Jonathan Maberry (Joe Ledger series read by Ray Porter), but this one's in there! It's an interesting twist on the fallen angel concepts and the origin of vampires and Lycans.


    What other book might you compare A Touch of Crimson to and why?

    In terms of originality, I'd compare it to Born of Shadows or Time Untime by Sherrilyn Kenyon. In terms of utilizing mythology, it compares to the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. I love all those series and they're all interesting and original in their own right. This one is completely original from all the other books I read or listened to. That's a rarity with romance or science fiction.


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

    i have listened to Luke Daniels. Even though he's always going to be Atticus O'Sullivan to me, he's really stretching his talents by doing this one. He's done well differentiating characters from the narrator voice of the story. It's awesome to hear him develop his talent.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I wish they had Mr. Daniels narrate the other book. I only get the ones read by men, and even then, I only listen to a select few. Mr. Daniels is one of the few. The next book is read by a women, so I'll be buying it, but if you don't have those hang ups, I would definately get the next book.

    Story
    "Yes, More Please!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Touch of Crimson the most enjoyable?

    I became a fan by listening to the Crossfire series from Sylvia Day. That author is amazing! She makes very good descriptions of the characters and their sex scenes. Very steamy book if you like that kind of stuff. She never disappoints when it comes to that subject.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is different from any other fantasy/romance book I've listened to so far. I'm use to listening different books about vampires but renegade angels puts a different twist to the story WITH vampires...how they're made, survive, etc. They give you a good definition of each kind of character in the first chapter which helps throughout the book. At first I thought it was boring to hear the definitions but it begins to makes more sense if you listen further.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Luke Daniel's performance has kind of a harsh voice as in too serious of a narrator. I get that the story is intense at times but it's kind of like listening to a news broadcaster who's relaying a breaking news story. The female characters he portrays needs a little work. Because of the narrator's low tone, the female characters lack personality.


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

    The moment when Adrian chooses to fall. I think I gave away too much...but that's the moment the book moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    Give the book a chance. The first few chapters are kind of boring but it gets better towards the middle and end. The series leaves you wanting more and I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out. It's worth the purchase but not the credit. You get your money's worth if you just buy it.

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

    Not so much after reading other Sylvia Day books, however there was a lot of passion and forbidden sexual encounters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sylvia Day before, how does this one compare?

    Not as put together as her other books, took me a while to follow characters, and what they were doing and their standing in the story.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Luke Daniels performance made this story. I would only have given it 2 stars if it were not for his great narration, which made it easier to understand the who's who.


    Any additional comments?

    I just finished book 2 in this series. Has a different narrator, but the story is much better and easier to follow. I'm hoping book three will just get even better.
