Death Angel | [Linda Howard]

Death Angel

After she double-crosses her lover, a ruthless crime lord, Drea must flee from a relentless assassin who ultimately succeeds in killing her. But after a very brief death, Drea returns to life a changed woman: no longer selfish and cruel, determined to bring down the ones who marked her for death. Joining forces with the FBI, little does she suspect that the man she will come to love is the same assassin who took her life.

    "Ug...No more Linda Howard for me"

    So boring. The majority of the time is spent on characters thinking out loud, which makes for a boring book--most especially when the characters are stupid. Throw in some laughable philosophy on life after death, a sudden plot point of a stillborn baby and male character voices that all sound choked and froggish and you've got one terrible book.

    I hate wasting my credits--save yours!

    ""Storyline not credible""
    Any additional comments?

    Drea's attitude after the "event' that supposedly changed her outlook on life is still judgemental and her reasons for her change of attitude is still selfish. Every decision or move she chooses is geared toward just getting more points in her favor rather than a feeling of benevolence or empathy towards others. Even the fact that she wanted to get back at the crime lord, in which she decided to get him jailed because of his crimes and yet in retrospect if you think about it, was for reasons of revenge and not because she was fighting for her life or someone else's life. The crime boss didn't even know she was alive, or was actively trying to get the FBI to arrest him even though she had no clue as to his criminal activities or crimes that happened of which she could tell the authorities about, but because of her idea to get back at Rafael, this caused, Simon to make the hard decision he had to make in regards to Drea's actions. The author's thoughts in regards to this storyline, is very convoluted and not plausible. She could have written it better with a little more forethought and research, but I guess she just wanted to get a book out.

    Love, love, loved this book. Absolutely LOVED Simon and Andrea/Drea/Andi. And, oh my gosh, Rafael got just what was coming to him. Action, adventure, love, sex, it had it all. I hated to see it end.
    The narrator did one terrific job. I would definitely want to listen to her again.

    "A favorite narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I won this audio in a contest. I had heard good things about the book before but had not read it yet. I really enjoyed this audio. Joyce Bean is a favorite narrator for me and I enjoyed her narration as I expected. The story was good, and the flawed characters - especially how they retain flaws after miracles happen to them - were realistic to me because of the flaws that stuck around. I think this is one of Linda Howard's best novels.

    Story
    "Ridiculous Let Down!"
    What disappointed you about Death Angel?

    The story line itself. It started off quite interesting but then went at a slow snails pace that randomly introduced a stillborn child from 15 years ago, the paranormal element really aggravated me. The paranormal portion was laid on so thick in a book that it had no place in. As a result, the main character became annoying and I didn't know if I was upset with her or the author. Even more than that, there was like minimal dialogue between the characters. Everything was stuck in the characters head. I expected so much more from Linda Howard. This was her worst work that I have read.


    Has Death Angel turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely not. I love Linda Howard's action packed romances. I will easily read another, because I mean each person is entitled to have an off day every now and then.


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is great. Very soothing and she is great with voices. Except her male voices are a little raspy. Not quite the manly voice I would like, but she does a much better job than I could ever do. However, besides that she is awesome!


    What character would you cut from Death Angel?

    Sighing...I don't know. The characters weren't exactly awful, just a significant chunk of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This story did nothing for me. It left me hanging, wishing the author would have re-written and truly thought about what she was putting together. The only part I honestly enjoyed was the very beginning of the book, like up to chapter 4. Then you know how sometimes an ending will be much better? Nah..didn't happen. This book is not worth a credit OR your money. Sorry Linda Howard fans......

    Story
    "Sexy, thrilling and even heart wrenching at times"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Solid 5 stars - both the narrator (Joyce Bean) and author (Linda Howard) seriously need to take a bow on this project. Amazing from beginning to end, though I will admit you have to be open to possibilities while listening otherwise a significant plot twist could derail you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Actually loving characters who are on the wrong side of the law, that blew my mind.


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Perfect blend of anxiety, passion and angst.


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

    Definitely! Ended up forcing myself to go to bed and started listening again as soon as I got up.

    The revenge

    None


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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

    yes, at one point the sneaky author through us a curve ball
