New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards continues her penchant for "fantastic storytelling" (RT Book Reviews) with this next heart-pumping romantic suspense novel, the tale of a brilliant ornithologist trapped on the remote Attu Island in Alaska, fighting for her life - and that of a handsome stranger - before they're swallowed up in darkness forever.

No. It's always unfortunate when a narrator ruins a good story. This happens to be one of those times. The female lead character came off as whiny and annoying, the inflections and constant breathlessness at the end of each sentence made me cringe. The male lead came off as one dimensional and harsh.
No. I actually had to force myself to finish listening to it.
I loved the plot but will need to read a hard copy version to get a better view of the characters. Both main characters came off as incredibly annoying because of the way the narrator read them. I always enjoy Karen's books, but this one turned me off because of the narration (and an over excessive use of adjectives describing everything down to a rock...)
If I had read this book, the voice in my head would not have made the female character sound like such a breathless timid drama queen. The story was good. I liked the fact it was set in Attu where my grandfather was stationed in WWII. The characters were good if one only listened to the words and not the voice inflection of the narrator.
Totally addicted to Audible.
The story was pretty good - though I don't know if people that cold and that much on guard could have sex. My main problem was with the narrator mispronouncing ornithologist.
I couldn't finish the book because the narrator voice is too whining when the character is in fear. The story itself what I have listen too is interesting. So I will definitely buy the actual book to read.
The recording, mixing and audio was horrible, it paused often, cut out parts, made the story very hard to follow. I wouldn't waste a credit. I suggest the author find someone to redo this reading. it was just bad all around. I don't even know the end of the story because it got that bad. waste of credit. I give the story a 3 only because I'm sure the author didn't know just how bad her work has been mutilated by the recording and sound engineering.
Robards has always been a fav and this did not disappoint- great adventure, romance, emotion, and humor all in one!
The performance was awesome too- the reader was great with the accents and it really pulled me in to the story.
this was a good story I read half of the book on my own before I downloaded the app because I just couldn't get enough of the story once I downloaded it was able to listen to it on my way to work it allowed me to finish the story much quicker
You really do feel the cold and lethargy in this book as the narration is very slow and tired-sounding. The initial plane crash is quite harrowing and if you are phobic, might be a bit too disturbing.
Overall an OK listen as a doctor and a mysterious man who may or may not be the enemy, evade others on a remote island.
