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.
Yes. It is a cool storyline.
I was a little disappointed in her reading of this book. I enjoy her reading the Kate Daniels series so I am leaning more that this book, while I enjoyable, it is no Ilona Andrews book....Let's face it, Kate Daniels is a a kick butt heroine....while Kendall wants to be but falls short. Sorry but talking about doing and doing are 2 different things....
I hope Anita Clenney continues the series and I hope Kendall continues to grow to be that kick butt woman for real instead of just in her mind. As I mentioned, I do like the storyline and I just picked one book 2 so we shall see.
I bought this recording hoping to get a decent paranormal adventure story. What I ended up with was a parody of Indiana Jones with heavy sexual overtones. The only thing missing was a walk on by the Keystone Cops. (Look it up Kids)! Needless to say I was disappointed with the entire book. Raudman did a fair job with the narration but she tends to get a bit melodramatic at times. It's hard to appreciate the drama when your laughing.
Books are better than TV -- Except for Outlander. That rocks!
Renee Raudman really munched the scenery in this one, totally destroying the pacing and any sense of excitement or drama.
Glad I have it on Kindle. I might get around to reading it someday.
