Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"If you love Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, then boy, is this the book for you...original and complex...the characters are unforgettable and the action thrilling." (Romantic Times)
Am a fan of Laurell K Hamilton and Sherrily Kenyon was recommneded for Hamilton fans. Now I'm really into it and I like the fact that each Dark Hunter book focusses on a new Dark Hunter, so avoids repetition. Narrator also a did a bang-up job of making me fall in love with the characters.
I read this book a couple years ago and really got into the characters, story and all the nuances of the hurts, pains, pleasure, passion and more. When I saw that Ms. Carrington MacDuffie was the narrator I knew I had to listen to it and I was well rewarded! I have recently discovered Ms. MacDuffie and find that she knows when something should be "dry", "whispered" or otherwise instead of just reading like an automaton therefore doing very well by the characters and their story; unlike some other narrations. I hope Ms. Kenyon is as pleased with her narration of Night Pleasures as I am. Ms. Kenyon has such savvy and wit in her writings and to have it live on in the narration is a true and simple pleasure to enjoy. I was so sorry to have it end. I only wish Ms. MacDuffie would have read Fantasy Lover also by Ms. Kenyon. That would have been a true treat with all its warmth and humor. I truly hope you find the enjoyment of this audible.com book as I have.
I absolutely loved this book. Sherrilyn Kenyon is fantanstic and the the narriator did a wonderful job too...I was sorry to see it end! If you need a book to laugh with, cry with, and just simply enjoy, then this book is for you!
I'll be purchasing more Dark-Hunter audio books in the future.
I read so I can write
I have had this book for 5 months and have tried 3 different times to listen to it. I quit after 20 minutes the first time, got to 1 hour the second time and made it with great struggle to 2 hours this last time. What a waste of time. I usually have something nice to say even about books I don't especially like, but this one I just can't.
much like soft core porn for women. Too many references to the men's privates and how they feel against other body parts. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a sexy book from the woman's viewpoint, but this gave me the "gay" creeps. I kept trying to fast forward some of the action. the ending was also fairly predictable.
Well written, however, every other page seems to be the two main characters fawning over eachother or having sex, which by the way was well written and descriptive. My problem with the book is that the underlying story is an interesting premise, but the thought that a creature over 2000 years old and a woman somewhere around thirty would be so physically enamored with eachother to the extent in this book is just about juvenile. If there were more balance I would overlook this one aspect of the book, but there is no balance in this book and the story becomes almost an afterthought. She is a best selling author though......amazing.
Ugh. Maybe teenage girls enjoy this trite, overblown nonsense, but no adult should bother with it.
I think this is the man all women dream about. I not into romance but this was pretty good. The book added the supernatural to the romance or I would not have listened to it. I may even go on to book 2. I love listening to a good series and there are 20 in all. So we'll see.
I spend a great deal of time listening to audios because of my work. This book was awesome can't wait to listen to the rest. Also if you like the Blackdagger brotherhood you will like these.
