I enjoyned Born of Night as well as BOF...This is a excellent book...SK continues to keep you interested!!! Keep them coming SK!!!
I had hoped this book would be better than the first book (Born of Night) of this series... it was not. As with the first, the female heroine was week, simpering, whinny and dumb as a rock. The narrator was better, however than the narrator in the first book.
I don't think one is better than the other. However, one of the things that made the audiobook so entertaining was Fred Berman characterizations. I especially liked Vic!
I love Shahara!! She kicks major a**!!!!
I love Fred. I have listened to ALL of the Sherrilyn Kenyon books that he has narrated and I've NEVER been disappointed. Actually, he is the only reason that I began to listen to this series on Audible. He is also the narrator for many of the Dark Hunter novels and when I saw that he was reading League books too, I jumped to start using my credits! Holders Graham is great too (fantastic, actually) but the sultry masculinity of Fred's voice is mesmerizing.
Move over James bond, you're finally outmatched... and she gives a great crotch shot!!!!
I just love this series. Of all the books, Nykerian & Caillen are my absolute favorites. Syn, however isn't far behind. As a married woman, they make it safe to fantasize about real men who know how to love, cherish, respect and honor strong women. Sherrilyn does a great job of making these men vulnerable without being WEAK. I cannot wait for Hauk's story to come out. I just wish we didn't have to wait so long.
I'm enjoying the series much more than I thought I would. Enjoyed it more when Kelly was the narrator in Born of Night. Fred doesn't give enough differences between the voices for me. And his female voices are grating, to say the least. Didn't like him when he read the Dark-Hunter series, either. Sigh!!!!
The narrorator is different from the "Night" book and it threw me off a bit. The story is good, but a bit predictable. Either way it was good entertainment.
Sadly, the blurb was more engaging than the book. After a solid hour and a half of repetitive, irritating backstory on virtually every character who crossed the page, I turned my MP3 off in disgust. I understand this was a sophomore book for Ms.Kenyon, but she really should have taken the time to clean up the sophomore errors. I would not recommend this book unless you suffer from insomnia. It's sure to put you to sleep.
I just dragged myself through The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo, that other people raved about, I was bored. The last couple of the Dark Hunters Wolf (Fang) were okay but I haven't used my credit on another of the werewolf books. I am downloading Born in Ice now. I liked "Acheron" a lot. I am enjoying the new series.
