    "Third in the Series Good twists"

    I will probably buy all of these in the series. I really enjoyed Covet the best. Didn't enjoy Crave. This one however has some scary and interesting twists. The narrator is perfect for this writing. I don't care for his female voices but I have gotten over it. Covet was more mysterious but Envy is more interesting. All of these books have very graffic sexual content. Tickler at the end...
    I am into this series but my background argues with the storyline all the way thru.

    "J.R. did it again"

    If you read J.R. Ward you are familiar with her snappy style and sexy characters. Envy does not disappoint. I think it is the best of the Fallen Angel series. The characters grow, develop and become real, which says a lot considering most of the characters are angels or arch-angels.

    Envy is pure fantasy escapism and worth every minute spent listening to it.

    "FANTASTIC--WOW"
    Would you listen to Envy again? Why?

    I would listen to all of this series again and again. It is just so well written and just fantastic that words just cannot explain.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think I would be like Devina and be totally in love with Jim Herron and really want him
    all the time like she does. Hmmmm, he sounds so hot!


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

    I have not heard any other books by him, but I would. And DEFINITELY keep him
    reading the rest of this series.


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

    Yes, there are a few places where you would giggle or laugh, and then there is one place where tears ran down my cheeks. I wont give it away, but it was very sad. I love being
    that in tune with a book and series of books.It just really makes "reading" so
    worth while.


    Any additional comments?

    I love that we are in Caldwell, and when around chapter 19 a black escalade nearly runs them over on the freeway I thought to myself --Hey, there are the Brotherhood after some lessors. The vampire in this book, yeah, I think it was one of the Brothers especially in the end where a big leather covered wearing sh-t kicker boots person comes walking down the hall of the hospital and says that he will make things right.
    I love that both series run side by side, and the author probably hoped that everyone catches this part, but I bet she figures they won't if they arent in tune with the Brotherhood series. Man! I love them too.
    Hard to believe I gotta wait until next year for the next installment on both of these super series. I have thought about 2-3 months before it will be due this time next year, to listen
    to all the books again. But Im so tuned in that I don't need a refresher, I pick right up where the series left off, and I generally dont stop until it's done. LOL
    If you don't like these, there is something really wrong with you. LOL even with the sexual context of the angels being one that I .....well, you understand Im sure.

    "Good, but not the best"

    While I still enjoy the "Fallen Angels" series, I like this book the least out of the three I've read. I didn't feel as though the new characters were as fleshed out, so I couldn't really feel anything for them. I also am not a fan of angry Jim. Jim is always a little pissed, but he was just a bit to angry to be totally likeable in this one. Overall, I still love the writing and the plot arc of the series and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.


    Regarding the narration, I am starting to feel like every female's voice sounds the exact same throughout the books, except for Devina. The male voices continue to be great.

    "Cops, romance and serial killers.How cool!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels the most enjoyable?

    Eric Dove gets better with every book.


    What other book might you compare Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels to and why?

    It was nice to see a cameo of Thor, the vampire from BDB.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I do love the cave scene when Vec had to choose between saving a killer and his partner. The whole book was my favorit scene.


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

    It was painful to think Vec was so tormented by his identity that he felt compelled to cover up the mirrors in his home.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so glad I can listen these books while I'm working.

    "Enjoyable"

    Wonderfully well developed story-line draws you in and keeps you hanging on to every word. Great characters involve you intimately from the very beginning to the very last. An exemplary work.

    "TERRIFIC SERIES!!"

    I loved the first two books of this series and this one was as wonderful in every way. J. R. Ward writes this genre beautifully---filled with excitement, great characters and a perfect blend of normal and paranormal.

    And this author captures the masculine attitude and manner so well. Besides Eric Dove who absolutely brings the characters to life. Yes, Eric Dove has to join Phil Gigante as another of my boyfriends. Sigh. Those two can read the phonebook and I would be putty in their hands.

    Anyway, I also absolutely ADORED the gay angels!! How refreshing and how wonderfully unique---I loved Nigel/Colin! And that fabulous demon, Devina, and all the fabulous clothes she wears! With stillettos...!

    Oh, and the premise of this series is so engaging---the saving of the souls. Now I will have to wait for the next installment of Jim Heron and the cast of angels.
