I wasn't crazy about the narrator.
I thought it was pretty good. I'm intrigued, I'd definitely like to listen to the next one to unsolved some more mysteries.
The narrator kind of spoke weird. Almost like a lisp or something that frequently made her "s" sounds sound more like "sh." I guess it's nit-picky, but it bugged me. It just seems like if you're going to have someone narrate a book, you'd weed out things like that. I don't know...
Interest mostly. One of the reviews I read for this compared it to a girl version of Indiana Jones. I love that series and I can definitely see how that comparison can be made. There was adventure and mystery and a bit of romance, although honestly, I like a little more romance than there was in this book, but I think it might be leading there a little bit. The main point of the story isn't for romance though, it's the adventure/mystery angle.
It's pretty cheap, so I think it's worth the buy.
This is a fascinating story that has interesting historical pieces.
I think the narrator of this story does a good job of keeping the story interesting and does a decent job with the voices.
This book is a good listen for when you are at the gym. It's not a book I had to listen too but looked forward to it when I was at the gym. It's a little draggy in places and then skips over some more interesting parts at the end...like the book just needed to get wrapped up. I'd buy it again.
More character development was needed for this storyline to really "fly". The protagonists attention spans and the plot was flighty. Even the scenes where danger was imminent, there were on-going sexual innuendos and jokes.

Great depth and variety of voices - an engaging performer.
A lively quick pace.
I like black tea, crossword puzzles, food, yarn, and my boyfriend. Everything else is hit or miss.
I really enjoyed the fantasy elements of the story. I think it's an interesting mechanic and I'm excited to see where it leads.
No, this was a first. I have to say though - I wouldn't seek out her narration. Her accents in particular simply take me out of the story, especially when, in subsequent books, she uses the only distinct accent she does well for subsequent different characters.
I laughed on more than one occasion, though it was more being taken aback by an off-color comment than anything else.
I really wish she sexual component of the books weren't so... prominent. There's definitely something to be said for sexual tension, but rather than "fantasy" being the primary category for this book it falls into "soft porn". The whole series suffers from the same problem. As I said previously, I think the fantastical part of the story, from the "ancient order" to the main character's pseudo-psychic abilities, are excellent. I can't really bring myself to recommend this to anyone I know personally though because of the overwhelming and mostly unnecessary sexual focus of the book.
It just keeps moving and the story line is good.
I will continue the series.
I read this story 1st in eBook form and now as audible so I could lead a book discussion on it. It is such am amazing story with lots of intrigue and mystery.
This audible was extremely well narrated and it flowed really well as the narrator switched between male, female and different accents.
Originality for the genre was well as adventure and mystery
Not the same old formula paranormal
Could have been stronger
As always spoiling the book if I answer here
