    Story
    "This Series Is Awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seraphs to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Natalie Gold reads the characters so well. She brings them to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Thorn St. Croix as a Neomage, trying to make a living among people who would kill her just for being able to work the elements around her.


    What about Natalie Gold’s performance did you like?

    I liked Natalie's "voice" for Thorn's character and the life she breathes into the other characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and it was almost that...


    Any additional comments?

    Read all three of these books beginning with Blood Ring. Natalie does all three in the series...

    Story
    "Editing Aweful"
    What would have made Seraphs better?

    1) Being able to listen to Chapter 152) The Editing of the audio is aweful. you can obviously hear wher they cut the audio. Never hear that in other books.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story was a decent story, wish I would have read these instead of listened to them.

    Story
    "Okay - Descriptions get a bit tedious"
    Any additional comments?

    The series follows "Thorn" a stone mage living (illegally) in a post apocalyptic world ruled by vengeful angels. The post apocalyptic world is split between orthodox and progressive sects of humans, and Thorns life is disrupted by both "dark forces" and the orthodox humans, hating her mage status.

    Through the books Thorn discovers more about herself and her past and bounces between various "love/sex" interests. However, due to a lack of character development it is hard to really care much about any of them.

    As book one was only "okay", I only choose to read book two as I had little time to look for another and I was taking a long flight and needed entertainment. It has some potential and the narration is good, however, the descriptions are too lengthy for audio book, and as noted, character development needs a bit of work. Perhaps if I was reading it in paperback (or kindle) I would be able to skip through long descriptions of magic, clothing and gems and get back to the story. However, in audiobook it gets a bit tedious.

    Story
    "Very interesting world Faith Hunter has created."

    The Rogue Mage series for me was very thought provoking. I could tell that a ton of research was done for this series. The detail was amazing and I don't think I have ever read anything like it. I will listen to or read a lot of books twice back to back because the first time through I do a lot of thinking about different aspects of the book etc. and miss things sometimes miss an important bit of info etc especially if I have read a lot of reviews beforehand. With a second read/listen, I tend to pick up little bits here and there that are important to the storyline. I tend to do this with movies too. Also if I have a copy of the ebook or print on hand, I will read along with the narrator. You would be surprised at how doing this helps enhance the story and help me remember things easier.
    Another thing...I kept a pad of paper and pen handy to write down the 26 words I had to look up in the dictionary (I write down and look up words a lot when I read. It helps me fully understand what is being said. I also write down quotes and keep a written log of through books I read). Anyway...this is a great series and author. If you want something different or that makes you think or brings a book out of the "mold", then Faith Hunter is a must read author!!

    Story
    "Seraphs what a great word."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seraphs to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the printed version, but love the easy listening edition. I could easily disappear in a different place. Having a story read to me allowing my mind to create it's own images is wonderful.


    What other book might you compare Seraphs to and why?

    Amber Benson series. Not the same thing but a great listen.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Gold – was your favorite?

    Audric and Thorn.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It kept me listening well into the night.

    "A bit too romancey"

    I listened to the entire series, but I just found it a bit too...romancey. Grant it, not a lot of sex, just lots of compulsatory lust. The story elements, on the other hand, were good, and it was entertaining.
