I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
I have been reading the Warriors of Poseidon series since the first book came out on Audible, and it's been a bit of a rocky ride. While I enjoyed the concept and the stories overall, I wasn't always so thrilled with the narration. Imagine my glee when I discovered they had changed narrators for this final installment and that one of my very favorite narrators, Xe Sands, was reading it. It made, for me, all the difference in the world. I think if she had read the series from the beginning, it would have changed this from a series I "liked" to a series that I "loved". She absolutely nailed it in my opinion.
In this book we Finally (yes, Finally with a capital F) get Alaric and Quinn's story. These two met in the very first book and boy did the sparks fly. They run into each other at least once a book for the next 6 books, leaving us wondering what would come of their seemingly doomed affection for each other. Now I know, but if you want to find out, you'll have to read the book! They were, from the beginning, such a mismatched couple that it was almost humorous. I was so happy to see that they were finally going to get their story told.
I was also happy that this book actually tied up all the loose ends of the Warriors of Poseidon series. I love a good series, and some I don't mind going on more or less indefinitely, but this particular series had an "end point" that you could see coming from the beginning, and it would have just been wrong to have carried it on and on without resolution. Alyssa Day does exactly the right thing by making this the last book in this series and ending this story line arc. I couldn't be more pleased and would recommend this series to any PNR fan.
I couldn't wait for this story and I was not disappointed. Xe Sands never fails to please. The male voices are sooo sexy. Alaric was positively toe curling. I am only half way so far but I am loving every minute.
I would recommend the book, but suggest starting with the first book in the series. Alaric and Quinn's story builds through the first seven books, and this final book brings them together. The read/listen will be much more satisfying if you have read the full series.
Quinn and Alaric finally figure things out!
This was the first time I have heard her performance. I thought she did a good job with the male and female voices.
The story was great! It is VERY DISAPPOINTING that after 7 books in the series narrated by Josh Swanson, the final and most pivotal book would be narrated by another person. Xe Sands had difficulty in the lower ranges for the male voices and considering a vast majority of the characters are male, not an enjoyable listen.
One of the best in the series.
Excellent narration. Different narrator from the first 7 books in the series, but still enjoyable.
This was a much anticipated book, that supposedly ends the series, it did not disappoint.
I laughed and cried throughout. It was one of those that I couldn't stop listening to.
I hope that Alyssa continues this series. I would like to hear about some of the other charactors that have been introduced into the storyline.
I highly recommend the entire series.
I plan on reading the book again myself. The print is better in my head.
Quinn of course. She is so funny, gritty, but vulnerable.
I absolutely loved when Quinn and Alaric soul melded.
Xe read the book as though she had not read the rest of the series. She didn't understand who the characters. Ven is a smart ass that loves to joke around, I didn't get that in the voice she tried to do. All the men where the same, sad, confused and defeated. These are Atlantean Warriors. They are supposed to be fierce and pissed off!
YES, BECAUSE IT IS A END TO A GREAT SERIES
I DID NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY USED A WOMAN TO READ THIS IT WAS ACKWARD AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY???????????????
IT WASN'T THE BEST OF THE SERIES BUT I LOVE THAT ALARIC GOT TO FINALLY SHOW HIS SOFTER SIDE
I have read all of the books and out of all of them this one was the worst. There were a few times that it made me laugh and even tear up, but after reading this I have decided that I need to write romance novels and be sure not to use Xe Sands as a narrator. I was so glad to hear that our celebate priest was finally able to be free to love, but it was written so poorly that I wanted to fast forward it all.
