    "Funny and Charming"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook! I couldn't stop listening once I started. The narrator was excellent! Katie MacAlister writes one hell of a story. Jim the Demon made me laugh out loud! The romance between Aisling and Drake was super hot! No pun intented!

    Story
    "Yup, I was slain! - Yikes. Pass, Pass, Pass"

    The story is set in France about a main character named Aisling Grey. She is likable enough but just way to much of a caricature for my taste. To be sure, there are a number of times where there are light moments and humor, but they are way too far apart to save this novel. The central plot does not create enough conflict that you get overly interested. It is more of a lackadaisical plot that bobs and weaves but with no real drama. If it weren’t for the daemon dog, Jim, I don’t know if I could even have finished it.

    The Narration by Barbara Rosenblat is just plain horrendous. First Aisling Grey is supposed to be 32 in this novel. Rosenblat’s voice for her maker her sound like she is in her late forties and not at all attractive. The voice she uses for Aisling’s daemon, Jim, sounds like Steve Urkel from Family Matters. If you do ignore my review and listen, do not use enhanced mode, she has the most annoying unbecoming narration habits – you can hear her swallowing almost every sentence. I think that her narration is horrendous enough to ward you off the series – pardon the pun. I notice that Rosenblat has done other novel for MacAlister – not good.

    I admit, I’ve read positive reviews. However, if you like this book I would steer you to Betsy in MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead series. That’s a vampire series that’s got a lot of laughs with excellent narration. I have to say punt on this and the others in this series – usually the first book is the best and if they get worse from here – oh boy and Aisling is a big don't care.

    "Can't take the swallowing"

    I loved the story, I really did. But, I can't get passed the swallowing of the narrator.

    "Love the storyline."

    I really like the story line and feel the narrator did very well. I don't know if the noise I hear on the recording is the narrator or the sound quality, but sometimes it was a little irritating. I enjoyed the story and although I don't mind sexual content, I felt the descriptions were a little repetitive. All in all, I will listen to the remainder of the series and have enjoyed the story thus far.

    "The narrator leaves little to be desired"

    If you want a review of the story, you'll have to go to another person's review because I couldn't manage to listen to the whole book due to the narrator. Odd pauses, swallowing, lip smacking - it was completely distracting. I'm going to go buy the book instead and read it, wish I hadn't wasted my money on this audiobook. Audiobook listeners beware! To sum it up in one word - dreadful.

    "Laugh Out Loud Funny!"

    Great choice for stress relief! Katie MacAlister has a great imagination and Barbara Rosenblatt is my all time favorite reader. Barbara makes the characters so much more entertaining than I believe anyone else could. (I heard the noises other listeners complained of, but Barbara is a person, not a machine, doesn't bother me. I did notice it more when I wore headphones and had the volume up too high. I didn't hear it in my car.)

    I love Audible for their variety and number of options of books available. I can enjoy books, take care of my grandchildren and drive too.

    "You will LOVE Katie MacAlister's Books"

    This is the latest in her dragon series on audible.com. Good story line with great characters. The narrator is good and gives life to the various and different story lines involved in each of her books. I look forward to seeing the entire series to download in the future. Please do not change narrators. This one is perfect for the books.

    "Love the story hate the narrator"

    Great story.

    The narrator is awful. She sounds all together way too old and throaty, making her much better suited to voice someone in their late 50's, early 60's after too much smoking and drinking. It was a huge turnoff and distraction. And the WHOLE time it sounded like she was lightly chewing gum and also sucking on hard candies. Sometimes that's all I could zone into hearing because it was so horrid, so I'd often had to back the story up to replay what I'd missed! She also missed the mark on when to use the proper voice inflections.
    I read this series long ago like I have with many of the Audible books I listen to. As with every character that you give a voice to when you read, I did that with this series. However, with other audibles I've listened to after reading the book, I've never had a real issue with the narrator's voice fitting my imagined one. This...I have NEVER heard such an awful pairing.
    Hopefully I can bear through since I purchased the whole series. Although, considering the nerve grating wrongness lasted the entire time, I won't hold my breath...

    "Awful Narration"

    Don't know if I'll even be able to finish this book. I actually wish I could return it. The narration is horrible, the woman sounds as if she's chewing or eating something between sentences.

    "I love this series"

    awesome book and it really makes more sense as a audio book but the narrator is very annoying. her voice is nice for the story but the lip smacky sloppy sounds she makes are super annoying. gotta agree with other reviews on that but it didn't bother me enough not to finish the book.
