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)

    "LOVE THIS STORY"
    If you could sum up Night Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    ROMANTIC!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    Talon hes romantic and completely in love!


    What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a good job but not my favorite pick.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Wouldn't make it a film.


    Any additional comments?

    Like most of her books at first I have a hard time getting into the characters, but towards the middle of the book I love them.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    Story
    "Beauty tames the Beast"
    What made the experience of listening to Night Embrace the most enjoyable?

    I loved how the female lead was able to "tame" the male lead. She was able to bring him to the point where he could see how he could be loved and show him that he deserved to be loved.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    There were some pretty sexy scenes in the book


    What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked the narrator. An audio book allows me to multi-task


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

    All Sherrilyn Kenyon books give you that warm fuzzy feeling by the end of the book. I think that's why we read them


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. I am only a few short of reading them all. Unfortunately, I haven't listed to many. I hope to resolve this in the future.

    Would you listen to Night Embrace again? Why?

    Absolutely! The story line was great and the performance of the narrator was fantastic. I really enjoyed it.


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job bringing the characters to life. She kept the attitudes, voices, accents and dialects diverse. I could always tell which character she was speaking for and it made the book that more enjoyable.

    Story
    "The Fireworks are everywhere in this one!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night Embrace to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love books, but hearing the story just helps to bring the characters to life in a way that reading alone does not always do. This narrator is excellent at drawing me in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    The upstairs room when all H*** breaks loose! What action! Love it!


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    I like that the performance is seamless. He slid from male to female and from accent to accent without a hitch and without breaking my concentration on the story.


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

    All the moments between Talon and his sister, especially the last one.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series, and I have found myself owning both the books and the audiobooks. That takes a lot for me, so way to go Sherrilyn. I may be broke, but keep em coming!

    Story
    "Talon rocks!!!"
    Would you listen to Night Embrace again? Why?

    Absolutely!! Truthfully, I am more of a Fred Berman and Holter Graham fan but Carrington did a great job. I especially liked Talon's accent. She kept me interested in the story and she really did Sunshine justice in terms of making her come to life as a character. Her accent threw me a little but it wasn't distracting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    The most memorable ASPECT of this book wasn't a "moment" at all, it was Talon as a character. I have read Night Embrace so many times it's sad. Of all the 30 plus novels that Ms. Kenyon has written and I've read, Talon has been and will probably remain my most favored. Believe it or not, I named my son after this character. I was pregnant when I first read the book and it stayed with me. The way that Ms. Kenyon constructed him as a character, as a MAN, just completely captured me. He was noble, strong, loyal, empathtic, intelligent, insightful and brave. He was also flawed, vulnerable and right on the cusp of being a womanizer. Mostly though, he was a proud warrior that loved/protected his family and valued his woman! Apparently, he was also an awesome lover. Those intimate scenes were no joke. Seeing as though I did name my son after this character, I try not to think about that too much. :-)


    What three words best describe Carrington MacDuffie’s voice?

    Interesting, versatile and pleasant.


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

    I could but when I am truly enjoying an audiobook, I like to drag it out because I become so caught up and invested in the characters that I don't want to let them go.


    Any additional comments?

    I would truly reccomend this book, the series actually, to all of those who like romance/fantasy novels. Ms. Kenyon is an awesomely imaginative author who expertly sweeps you into an entirely new world. She is a true artist that provides such keen verbal/written illustrations that you actual feel as though you are experiencing the emotions and physical happenings of the characters. For example, I could see the beauty of Talon's swamp and feel Sunshine's fear of Styxx as if I were right there with her. I love that Ms. Kenyon's literary artistry allows you to be absorbed into these fantastic stories even if only for a few hours a day.

    "Heavy on the sex, light on the plot"

    This is the second book that I have listened to in this series and I found, just like in the first one, the very graphic sex scenes dominated the story for me and seemed to be placed instead of really moving the story forward. I wanted to like it more than I did, but I found the narrator's Southern accents to be kind of annoying and I never really got into the characters. I purchased 3 in the series, so one more to go!

    "Talon Rocks!!!"

    This book is everything I like about Sherrilyn's books and what I don't like; what I like: intriguing characters, action, great plot development, the interaction of other characters from other books, which always makes me think she is writing a very huge story which she has broken down into smaller stories, anyway I digress...what I don't like: it is said that when I man writes about loving making they are writing porn, but when a woman writes about love making it is seduction and romance, well Ms. Kenyon as marred those lines a bit I think, I believe that in her books the action and the stories are stuff that happens around the love making (believe me I'm toning this down for Audible) the development of the characters a by product of the sensual world she has developed, don't get me wrong I like a good romp under the covers as much as anyone, but to a lesser degree in the books I read...all in all though, like her other Dark Hunter books, this one is worth listening to, I like Talon, he is cool and his powers rock...like the book that preceded this one, it is a glowing example of a very gifted writer.

    "Very, very entertaining."

    Fantasy and smut, but not cheesy. Narrators voice very good, also even volume which is a great plus. I will continue listening to this series, hoping to have this narrator again. The stage is a perfect backdrop for this series.
