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

"This series puts a contemporary spin on classical mythology...irresistible." (Publishers Weekly)
Plot line is good.
Never, ever use this narrator again!
I won't download the next book due to the use of the same ridiculous narrator!
I am going to order it for my nook as I couldn't even get through the first chapter with the narration. Scott Brick should not be allowed to read any of the Dark Hunter series novels. These books should be in Fred Berman or Holter Graham's camp only!
I love all of the Dark Hunter books and I am sure I will love this one. I have found that if they don't have good narration they need to be read. I wish I would have read the reviews before I purchased.
I would buy another book from SK, OF COURSE!!!
Scott Brick as the narrator? !@$# NO!
I'm sure the story is great, even though I couldn't finish it due to the annoying narration.
Scott Brick's narration was like reading an episode of "Project Runway". You know the main judge (who's really good)? However, for a Dark Hunter novel, that kind of reading DOES NOT WORK. OMG. I was distracted the entire 2 hours I tried to listen through. Sorry. The narrator is not for any of SK books.
Please, make sure that he doesn't do any other narrations of SK series. Thanks.
Yes, after reading some of the reviews i was reluctant but I really enjoyed it
Strykers story tied up alot of loose ends....
I truly enjoyed the book beginning to end....
Really glad i gave it a try
Book love it Awesome book marry me baby i wisb i was one of the ppl in this book. Hahahahahh
The content is as usual awesome. Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master at her craft. She knows how to pull you in and never let you go. It's why I love the series. The characters, the dialogue everything is perfection. The only thing I would change about the audio book is the narrator. Fred Berman is my favorite narrator in the series with Holter Graham a close second Listening to those two narrate is a joy because you can actually get lost in the book.
All the books in the series are comparable to this one. I think I would have a better time reading this book than listening
I didn't like anything about this narrator. He would be better off reading text books or the bible. There is a subtlety to reading a book that this narrator doesn't have. He is acting and it's really bad acting. It made me want to burn my ears and pull my eyes out. It was torturous listening to this book. I don't think I've ever had such a bad reaction to a narrator.
Overall I love the series so I suffered through this book
The closer look at the bad guy.
No and will avoid his narrations in the future if possible.
I have loved most of the Dark Hunter books. This might have been a good short story, but the narration was just plain awful. None of the characters were believable and the inflection was horrible.
I thought I needed to listen to all of the books in order to make sure that I did not miss any of the twists Sherrilyn Kenyon loves to put into her books.
I wish I had payed attention to the reviews I read and bought the e-book.
Narrator has a good voice, but I have no idea what he was thinking, his extreme over exaggeration of characters voices just destroyed the book. I could not finish it.
I have to agree with other reviewers regarding the sub-par quality of this audiobook.
While the story itself is definitely worth your time if you're a fan, do yourself a favor and get the printed version.After suffering through five whole chapters of the audiobook, I had to abandon it for a while in order to erase from my memory the awful impression of the characters this particular narration left me with before moving on to the printed book.
After listening to the entire series up to now as read by Fred Berman and Holter Graham (each with his own style, but both absolutely delightful to hear), Scott Brick's lack of skill in this reading is only too evident: he makes no effort to act out the female characters in a more feminine way and as a result they all sound either butch or shrewish. As for the male characters, despite the fact that Mr. Brick's repertoire of "voices" is large enough, he imbues the characters with a rather limited emotional range - he just seems unable to go beyond pissed off and bored. This becomes even more evident in the narrative parts, which were overall read in a rather flat tone.
Given his performance here, it surprised me to find how much work Mr. Brick has done a narrator. However, even if I could excuse this particular disaster due to an apparent incompatibility between the narrator and the genre (although he has read several sci-fi novels), I would be hesitant to get another audiobook read by him.
