I enjoyed these books. I liked the characters and the pace was a nice mix of action and non-action. I like characters that suffer and suffer and suffer some more but still manage to win the final battle. The main character suffers a lot physically and emotionally thereby making it difficult for me to stop listening.
The only issue was the narrator's incredibly slow drawn out speaking style. I had to increase the speed to 1.25 and that improved the pace that I ended up enjoying the narrator. I thought she did accents and female voices very well. The men were sometimes a little to gravelly but acceptable. Her habit of over pronouncing the last letter of the last word in almost every sentence made it impossible to listen at regular speed but at the faster speed, it was barely noticeable.
All in all a good listen if you like these kind of worlds with demons and angels.
the reader has a way of reading that i found annoying. the story is very simplistic in storyline and language
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
let me tell you this is a bit hard to follow... I WAS SO EXCITED TO FIND A ANGEL/DEMON BOOK BUT THIS ONE IS SO HARD TO FOLLOW & IT DON'T MAKE SINCE HALF THE TIME!! I'M TAKING A BREAK FOR A BIT & I'LL TRY IT AGAIN LATER! I'LL UPDATE MY REVIEW THEN!
"Angels and Demons - who are the good guys?"
What started as interest has developed into something nearing addiction. I desperately want to know what happens next and am quite annoyed - in a good way - that there are so many unanswered questions.
I never really warmed to Anthony - and the last book didn't really do much to change my mind or attitude. I am concerned about James though, and wonder what will happen between them.
I found the last book less appealing than the first two and hope that the rest of the series is not a matter of dragging what could fit in two books across four.
I liked the narrator and will listen to her again. It is a pity the rest of the series is not available on audio.
