    "It was wicked!!"

    I really enjoy Lauren's book and I especially like the narrator. It drives me crazy when they change narrators with their novels. He is definitely someone you should listen to....but the book is great. I love it when the hero is being setup and tortured by the heroine. She knew before he does that they were meant to be....great continuation of the Cynster novels. The love scenes were great...smile.

    "not much of a plot"

    On the positive side, the author has a wonderful vocabulary and the reader is capable. The book is way too long for the limited and predictable plot. I am glad I got it on sale and didnt waste a credit on it. I fell asleep several times and had trouble rewinding and finding my place since the same scenes seemed to keep repeating and the plot moves with all the speed of a soap opera.

    "One of the weakest stories in the series"

    Simon Prebble does his usual excellent rendition of the characters, and but for that, I wouldn't have finished it. The interminable sex scenes that are usual in Laurens' books are even more frequent in this one. The plot looked promising when she finally got round to it midway through, but stalled and fizzled before it had a chance to develop.

    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A plot.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm not sure but I'm reluctant to read the next book in this series.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Simon Prebble?

    Absolutely!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like most of the Cynster characters so they bring something to the story. But not enough.


    Any additional comments?

    The earlier Cynster stories were very good. The series started to fade with the previous book and it has really dropped with this one. Maybe Stephanie Laurens just had a bad book.

    I am an artist. I enjoy listening to mystery romances while sculpting art in wood.

    "Love the book, HATE the publishers!"
    Would you listen to On a Wicked Dawn again? Why?

    Yes I will. I enjoy a good romance and this is a good one.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy this series unless you want to be disappointed due to the fact only part of the series is available to listen to. And there is NO chance to listen to the missing books. The publisher is not willing to add them to Audible for the listening public to enjoy.

    "pretty bad"
    What disappointed you about On a Wicked Dawn?

    I've listened to many Stephanie Laurens books and never been so bored. No real story and the romance is boring and insufficient on its own to merit so many chapters.

    "Meet the family"

    As the story goes, I don't think this novel is as good as the rest. The premise is just weak and the sex overwhelms it. That said, as a Cynster fan, I liked the book because there was an opportunity to get to know some of the older members of the family - Arthur, Louise, and especially Helena. For me that rescued the book from a lower score.
    Narration as usual was wonderful.
