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

"This series puts a contemporary spin on classical mythology...irresistible." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a great example how a narrator can ruin a story. Hard to get through listening to this guy. I prefered the old narrator from the previous books in the series.
I love the series and this was the first book I can truly say " I just endured" the narrator made me feel like he was reading to children. The changes in his voice were childlike. The story was not one of my favorites.
I would only recommend this if you read it, don't listen to the audio version. The narrator takes away from the experience.
I am absolutely a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon books. I've fallen in love with this series.. but the guy narrating it is not right for this series. I'm sorry.. just don't like his voice. When he does the female voices he sounds like Jim Carrey doing Venus De Milo.. can't stand it! I'm not finishing this book. I'll just have to actually read it myself so I can move on to the next one in the series.
Fred Berman should be narrator for all her books.
All of Sherrilyn Kenyons books... any series really.. should be narrated by the same person. The one thing that has ruined listening pleasure for this series is that the different narrators do not use the same pronunciations.. do not even bother checking the previous novels to see if the characters before had accents and what those accents were. Characters from before that had thick accents no longer have them in the future.. what is that? It's just not consistent. I almost didn't purchase the Acheron audible book because I was so disappointed they didn't get Berman for that book.. one of the most important ones in her series. Fred Berman by far is the absolute best for this series. I hope they keep that consistency in the future and employ him for future reads.
The narrator! I actually really like the idea of a story in which we get to hear about-and at times even sympathize with-the series' antagonists (much like Styxx in that regard). Throughout most of the book though, I was so distracted by the narrator that it was difficult to appreciate Stryker's story!
No way! The reviews I read made me hesitate to buy this book. In fact, I've listened to all of the Sherrilyn Kenyon books (except for the ones with bad narrator reviews) but there were some holes in the storyline I was curious about, so I finally bought it and man-oh-man, the reviews weren't exaggerating! The mocking, driveling, nasel tone of the performance was so hard to listen to! The woman were overly whiny and shrill and the men were either overdone or sounded mentally deficient. Throughout the whole book I found myself picturing how Fred Berman and Holter Graham would've said things.
Love the Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter series, but if you're a first time listener of her books, don't start here! You probably won't make it past the reader to listen to another of her books!
I would and will read all sherrilyn Kenyon's books but cannot listen to another book narrated by Scott brick.
Overacted the parts.
No because it already has more to the series
Please do not use this narrator anymore. He makes the books sound corny.
absolutely NOT! with the print version, at least i can imagine the voices. this was too.......i really can't find an appropriate description for this reader. NOT to my taste, or liking at all.
not scott brick performing , but william dufris. might like to hear the scott version. am sorely tempted to return this book.
The book itself was good. Have heard better from the series.
The narrator is why I gave a 3 for overall. I had a really hard time with the voices he used for different characters.
I don't see how anyone could like this book because of the narrator.
Never listened to anything so horrible!
The single WORST narrator I've EVER heard! I wanted to gouge my eardrums out with a pen! Everyone who listened to this book should get paid restitution! Poor Mrs. Kenyon, I feel bad for her because I know this narrator had ruined her ratings.
No! The book may have been good if it weren't for the narrator.
Please please please don't ever use this narrator AGAIN!!!!
Change the Narrator
I have listened to all the books and this narrator by the 3rd chapter makes me want to read this book instead. I can not stand how he impersonates the characters. His reading is awful!
Only the written version
We get a bit more of Acheron
Robert Petkoff or Holter Graham
