Having read the entire Touched Series as each book was published, I've really enjoyed being able to listen to these stories on audiobook. Teri Schnaubelt has such a talent for bringing Nancy's stories to life. Her various accents and tones really help paint a wonderful picture in my mind. The character's are more vibrant and truly take on a life of their own through the narration.
The story continues with Drake and Cami making their way to the Centaur Council to fight for the Lost Herd's acceptance back into the Centaur world. Along the way, we meet new character's and spend time with some old characters we grow even closer to! This story definitely has some great moments that are heartfelt and emotional. Fans will not be disappointed with this installment.
I have listened to books 1 and 2. Great fantasy audiobooks. The saga continues and with each chapter the excitement builds. Although it was hard to put the book down, I had to get some rest because the story leaves your heart palpitating! The author manages to touch different emotions simultaneously--love, anger, sympathy, humor. Can't wait to see how it all ends.
Absolutely! Print books can't even compete with the audio version. The narrator did a fabulous job once again. The accents, the voices, the proper pronunciations, the excitement! No way can I get any of that from reading a book on my own. An audiobook is like listening to a movie only better as we all know the book is always better!
I loved it when Daniel made Drake so angry that he changed back into a man. Daniel did this as a favor for Cami, his best friend that he also loves. That moment when Drake was once again a man was awesome! I was so happy to see Cami happy again!
In the end, when all of Cami's family stood together to fight off the Enforcers. When Cami sent the last Enforcer to go back and deliver a message that the Lost Herd is coming back, accept them or else!
Mythology at it's finest!
I just love this series! I love the narrator's multiple voices in it. I love all the excitement and all the references to mythology. I love the excitement in this book and the entire series! The author, Nancy Straight did a fantastic job once again, keeping me glued to my seat listening to this book. The narrator, Terri Schnaubelt if awesome with all her voices. Every sentence holding just enough excitement to keep us listening! Kudos to both ladies! Onto book 4!
I freakin love this series!!! There is so much depth to the story!! Really creative concept, who would have thought I would adore centaurs! I am seriously entrenched in this series!
The book is rich and dynamic, with so many beautiful levels. My favorite thing is the way the narrative switches and gives varied POV from the leads and supporting characters. The intricate web of connections between the couples is brilliant. I can not wait to see where this all goes.
I love Cami and Drake, such devotion! The other couples are just as great to see interact and grow in their relationships. I did want to smack Cameron for being so gullible, but I have hopes that will change in the next book. Every where they go they seem to pick up new friends and allies. The angst is minimal, thank goodness.
One of the great things is the way they come together as a family. They may be new to each other but the loyalty and love are deep and unbreakable. I am very excited to see them in the final battle.
I will say one thing that bothers me in the series is the way the ladies let themselves be treated. They are stronger than the males and have all this power. Thankfully this is about to change, I suspect.
I will say the first person is annoying. Listening to the audiobbook makes it a little better, but it is not my favorite. It is narrated by Teri Schnaubelt, who does a stellar job with the various voices and POV. She has splendidly swift pace, it adds to the movement of the story. I love her tone and the energy she instills in the read. She is a real credit to the series.
This book brings us closer to the end and unveils so much more of the tale. The mythology mixed in is fantastic. Everything comes together and you see glimpses of what will happen in the final book. I can not wait to see this hand played out!
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
This story line is unusual and gripping. Each triumph the Cami and Drake encounter is challenged again. I am loving how cupid's arrow is flying around the uptight centaurs. Narration is good also.
