Covet: A Novel of the Fallen Angels, Book 1

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    "Definately not for me"

    First, let me say that I did not like this book. In my 150 Audible books I have finished, this is the first review I have ever written, in hopes of warding others away from a long bad read/listen. On a 35 hour driving trip, I almost did not finish it.

    1. Terrible Dialog. The dialog is forced and delivered poorly by the reader. I couldn't figure out which was worse, the writing or the reading.

    2. Too many f- bombs. I am probably less offended by cursing than almost anyone I know, but the cursing was over the top-- in some cases, even in the narration.

    3. Can't make up its mind what it wants to be. Love story: C-, Suspense Thriller: D-, Sci-Fi: D-, Overall: D-.

    "Covet"

    This is my first J.R. Ward novel and I was pleasantly suprised. It is written from a different perspective than the typical romance-type novel. Good plot, great characters and fun fantasy. I look forward to the next edition.

    "LOVED IT!"

    JR Ward is easily in my list of top favorites! I was smitten with my first introduction to her writing with the Black Dagger Brotherhood and I'm so glad I've got yet another addicting series in Fallen Angels.

    Covet, the first story in the battle between good and evil was awesome! There was a bit of suspense and mystery, coupled with other worldly fantasy & romance that I really enjoyed. The characters are intriguing and left me excited about what's to come. Ward blends the human/paranormal thing like a pro. The narration was good, although I compared it to the BDB the whole time expecting the voice characterization range that Jim Frangione had, nonetheless, Dove did a respectable job.

    I'm all in with this series, and highly recommend it as a total credit worthy purchase!

    "This book was so amazing!!"
    If you could sum up Covet in three words, what would they be?

    Twists, turns, hot


    What other book might you compare Covet to and why?

    JR Ward is kind of in a league of her own


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't but he's one of my favorites now!


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

    Most definitely. Couldn't wait to get to book 2!

    "tolerable"

    This book started off a little rough. It was all over the board for a good while, several chapters at least. I was fighting with the idea of getting my credit back from audible on this one. It wasn't until about (maybe) halfway through that everything started turning around and making sense. Then it started getting pretty good. It ended pulling it altogether, but I wasn't sure I wanted to get the second book in the series.

    I just finished the second book and I am glad I struggled through this one. It gets better.

    "I loved the story and I loved the narration."

    I have been looking for another good story to listen to and was seriously thinking about canceling my subscription until another good book that I wanted to hear came out. I am a BDB fan and have been in agony waiting for the story about Q and B to hit the stands in March of 2013. I was pleasantly surprised that the story grabbed me and held me the way it did and I even liked the narration, which has been another stopping block for me after listening to stories read by Phil Gigante. Everyone else has begun to sound like my GPS is reading the book to me.
    I think that Eric G. Dove did a really good job at getting the story across. I am learning that a narrator can make or break a really good book and story line. I have read some really good books, and when I tried to listen to the same story on audio book the narrator turn me away from books that I knew were really good.
    Not this time ! J.R Ward is a fantastic writer and I think that Mr. Dove did her work justice and I think I have just found myself another narrator I can trust to pull up a chair with me next to my fireplace and read me a story as I snuggle up in my favorite blanket. I can't wait to hear the next in the series. Ironic that just as I was losing faith in finding another good audible book to listen to the story of Fallen Angel was delivered to me, of all things, by a man named DOVE!

    "Good Book to Muli task to."
    If you could sum up Covet in three words, what would they be?

    Read the Series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None,takes a cast to make it good!.


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Half the experience!


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

    Well,if you consider spending credits on the others in the series "extreme", then yes. No strong emotion of any degree,just a decent Listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish J.R Ward would continue the series.

    "Pretty decent book."

    This book was pretty decent. I read it after reading all the BDB book, so it was a nice change. Was getting kind of tired of the same people reading BDB. I have not read any further than this book in the series yet. Its worth a credit.

    "Love everything J.R Ward"

    Loved this! I also loved the way she discretely blends this world in with her other series (Blackdagger Brotherhood Series) which I totally recommend you get your hands on. The narrator did an amazing job and can’t help but fall in love with the male characters. Totally enjoyed and cannot wait for her next instalment.
