Publisher's Summary

While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies - which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race. To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters.

But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra. Just when he thought nothing could stop him, he's now embroiled in a centuries old war with a shrew who gives new meaning to pain.

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

    Story
    "Narrator ruined this."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Scott Brick?

    Sherrilyn Kenyon is a great writer so yes. Scott Brick did not narrate this, my Audible app says William Dufris did. I'm not sure which person it truly was but the narration was off putting. The story was quick and chessebally. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon though. My tastes have changed though over the years so that could've been an influence on the story's rating as well. I used to love the sexy scenes but now I want to flash through them to get to the stories and conflicts. hahaha She does write great dramatic fight scenes and battles.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sherrilyn Kenyon wrote it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Voices were distracting and awkward to listen to. Not sexy or manly at all. There was no "coolness" to the voices. Her previous books I read though, so this is my first time listening to the audiobook within the series.


    Could you see One Silent Night being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No prissy punk Hollywood guy. Hugh Jackman, Dwayne Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin and the like would be better fit for the Dark-Hunters. The women should be strong ladies like Gabrielle Union, Uma Thurman nad Michelle Rodriguez.

    "HATE the narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Nope, that's it, just hate the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The alliance of the big 3.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Jim Frangione


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

    pretty shallow, so, not really.

    Story
    "Sherrilyn, please don't leave us to this narrator!"
    Where does One Silent Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is was very good, but it was so painful to listen to that narrator, that the overall enjoyment plummeted.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Silent Night?

    Honestly, all I can hear is the sniveling voice of the narrator when Media was introduced. I cringed.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Oh, God...anybody else! I could have done a better job, and that is not saying much. Please beg Fred Berman to read. He has the best pronunciations and really does Simi justice. Of course, you can't go wrong with Holter Graham.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was repulsed by the horrible narration. At first I thought is was a joke or some idea that was going to be worked into the story. The wining, condescending way he represents women should repulse Sherrilyn as much as it pulsed anyone, being the strong woman that she is.


    Any additional comments?

    Oh, no...not Dream Warrior, too. You used the same awful narrator? I am just starting Dream Warrior, and am tempted to actually not read it. Hey, it's painful. A book series that is in my top 5 favs of all time is being ruined by this really inept narrator. Please don't use him anymore, Sherrilyn. I beg you....!!!!

    "Narrator sucked!"

    This is a great example how a narrator can ruin a story. Hard to get through listening to this guy. I prefered the old narrator from the previous books in the series.

    "Endured"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love the series and this was the first book I can truly say " I just endured" the narrator made me feel like he was reading to children. The changes in his voice were childlike. The story was not one of my favorites.


    Would you recommend One Silent Night to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would only recommend this if you read it, don't listen to the audio version. The narrator takes away from the experience.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    No


    Was One Silent Night worth the listening time?

    No

    "Love the book.. can't stand the audio."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am absolutely a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon books. I've fallen in love with this series.. but the guy narrating it is not right for this series. I'm sorry.. just don't like his voice. When he does the female voices he sounds like Jim Carrey doing Venus De Milo.. can't stand it! I'm not finishing this book. I'll just have to actually read it myself so I can move on to the next one in the series.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Fred Berman should be narrator for all her books.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Sherrilyn Kenyons books... any series really.. should be narrated by the same person. The one thing that has ruined listening pleasure for this series is that the different narrators do not use the same pronunciations.. do not even bother checking the previous novels to see if the characters before had accents and what those accents were. Characters from before that had thick accents no longer have them in the future.. what is that? It's just not consistent. I almost didn't purchase the Acheron audible book because I was so disappointed they didn't get Berman for that book.. one of the most important ones in her series. Fred Berman by far is the absolute best for this series. I hope they keep that consistency in the future and employ him for future reads.

    "Loved the story, hated the narrator!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator! I actually really like the idea of a story in which we get to hear about-and at times even sympathize with-the series' antagonists (much like Styxx in that regard). Throughout most of the book though, I was so distracted by the narrator that it was difficult to appreciate Stryker's story!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    No way! The reviews I read made me hesitate to buy this book. In fact, I've listened to all of the Sherrilyn Kenyon books (except for the ones with bad narrator reviews) but there were some holes in the storyline I was curious about, so I finally bought it and man-oh-man, the reviews weren't exaggerating! The mocking, driveling, nasel tone of the performance was so hard to listen to! The woman were overly whiny and shrill and the men were either overdone or sounded mentally deficient. Throughout the whole book I found myself picturing how Fred Berman and Holter Graham would've said things.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter series, but if you're a first time listener of her books, don't start here! You probably won't make it past the reader to listen to another of her books!

    "Love the series but couldn't stand the narrator."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Scott Brick?

    I would and will read all sherrilyn Kenyon's books but cannot listen to another book narrated by Scott brick.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Overacted the parts.


    Do you think One Silent Night needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No because it already has more to the series


    Any additional comments?

    Please do not use this narrator anymore. He makes the books sound corny.
