Vishous is a very interesting character. Full of sensuality in its sadistic way, loving and protecting, and above all loyal to his brothers. A sad childhood, which mark this young man with interesting ways to love. Live evolves for Vishous, showing cruelty with an odd way to keep living and loving his mate. A great story.
These books are great...and a good part of it is due to the great narration of Jim Frangione! I tried to read one and it just wasn't the same.
Classic Ward novel. I enjoyed learning about the tattoos and other things about V. I thought the ending sucked though. A ghost? Come on....
The first book in the series is not the best but it gets better and this one is one of the best. V and butch are the best characters. I wish the author would make them sound their age but the stories are so amazing.

Boy, was I disappointed in this book!
First, let me address the audio problems. The editing completely sucks! You can tell where the recording stops and starts, even in the middle of a sentence. The voice goes off dramatically. The narrator will be doing a descent job, and then there's a drop in the volume and it's like he's reciting the classifieds. It does this through out the audiobook.
Now, let me get to the narrator. I've heard so much better! He can NOT do female voices, at all! He doesn't even make an effort to change the male voices when they're having a conversation, and you end up not knowing who's saying what. And like I previously stated, it's like he's reciting the classifieds when there's a fight or sex scene. With a little more training, he would be pretty good, but until he can learn to change his voice when the character changes, he's going to keep getting negative comments.
Now, let me address the book in general. Why hadn't anyone written a review telling us that there's a huge homosexual undertone to this book? Yup, you read me correctly! (not that there's anything wrong with that) It's just that when I'm listening to a romance, I expect my fantasy man NOT to be in love with other men! It was such a turn off. Plus, the whole dominatrics thing.......yuck. I want a little passion and romance.....just a little wouldn't hurt, at least in the beginning. Let me have a chance to get to know a character, before they start getting freaky. And then there's the ending of the book. I won't give away any spoilers. I'll just state that I did not like it, and I feel that not much imagination went into it.
I gave this audiobook 2 stars, because I liked how Jane's story began. How she and V meet is really sweet and interesting. The book had potential.
I can't believe that I passed on a $60 Diana Gabaldon novel for this, with my monthly credit. Uggg! So disappointing.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
V and Butch got some serious bromance... I don't like Jane all that much.. But glad Scribe Virgin got her sh.t together and gave her son his woman back
I'd rather listen than read!!!! This is my joy!!!
It took long to get to the point. I don't need all the history!!!! The bisexual intro could have been left out!
No because I've purchased the other books. I'm hoping it gets better. I enjoyed books1-3. #5 is in question.
The performance was the same no change. It was more the story line.
Butch could've been left out. Quin and John could've all been left out. John's character isn't a main character till book 9. I didn't need him in book 5. This was a waste of time.
If I wasn't so OCD I WOULD'VE skipped this one in the series.
