What the Critics Say

"Kenyon's Dark-Hunter books are changing the face of the vampire novel, making it hip, darker, and all the more appealing." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Poor narration makes for a hard listen"
    What did you like best about Night Embrace? What did you like least?

    The narrator pours on a Georgia accent so thick and syrupy you have to remind yourself that the story is in Louisana. Then she tries her version of a Gaelic accent. She isn't just bad -- she's horrendous! It's like listening to a native of the Hindu tongue trying to imitate a Scotsmen. If a narrator can't do accents believably and well, they shouldn't do them at all.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carrington MacDuffie’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy these goofy, wackadoodle, rewrite mythology, bend it to urban fantasy romances. They are fun and light hearted with a touch of adventure to keep the love story moving. Sherrilyn Kenyon likes to make their childhood or young adulthood traumatic -- and that is a bit overly repetitive, but the humour and romance compensate well. Light listening. If you take your mythology of monsters and gods seriously, avoid these stories.

    "was hard to listen to."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    Sherrilyn Kenyon yes, Carrington MacDuffie no. Sherrilyn needs to cut out of her books her porn addiction and rely on her story telling skills. Carrington needs to stick with woman voices only.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not the right narrator for this book or series.

    "Great story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Just enough historical facts to make it really interesting for a history buff. And the love story always makes for a nice book

    Story
    "3rd book in series- Talon!"

    This is the 3rd book in the DH series and as I read the reviews about the narrator and Sunshines voice, I don't get it. I think the narrator dos a great job with all the different accents and with Sunshines voice too. We can't have all the women sound exactly the same and I think it is unique to her and her personality.
    This story is about Talon and Sunshine (a reincarnated version of his wife from thousands of years ago). It also gives us insight into Acheron, Styx and Zarek. Zarek is the next book in the series!!! I know we have a narrator change next book but I'm excited for it.
    Is this book worth a credit?? --- YES

    Happy Reading/Listening!!!

    "Don't like narrator"

    The narrator makes the women sound like whiny airheads with no brains in their heads.

    "Like nails on chalkboard...."

    I wanted to like this book. I'd listened to one of Ms Kenyon's related YA books and enjoyed it. Not so with this book. I might have liked it better without this particular reader, but not by much. The plot was very choppy with some parts only barely related to others...we now interrupt the story with a hard right turn and subplot. Take as many paranormal idead, gods, vampires, weres...whatever, throw em in a blender and make a nice pot of Gumbo. And the reader. She did a great job differentiating the characters, but the tone of voice and horriffic accent used forSunshine and some others made my ears bleed. Fake accents, especially to someone who has ever been to that part of the country...no. Just no.

    "talon's book is great"
    What made the experience of listening to Night Embrace the most enjoyable?

    I love the dark hunters but Sunshine is the best. I could be her friend and have so much fun with her.

    The Dark-Hunter series has been all I have heard from my wife for the past 3 years. Now I know why she loves it so much. Amazing read.

    Story
    "Greaaat!"
    If you could sum up Night Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    Vampiric steamy romance


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I personally just love the scale of Sherri's world. Seeing characters from her other novels make cameos and play into the current story is so freaking cool! Honestly, I am a fan of the steamy scenes, but I already really enjoy the humorous parts. There's a particular moment in which Talon gets into a naked situation he can't easily get out of...at least not without telling his friends.


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

    Yes, but because of life responsibilities it was over several days. Worth every second.
