loved the story not a romance fan it seems like it was shoved in there painfully. That was the only unfortunate thing about the book the rest I loved!
The story flows, never boring. Excellent series to read or to listen.
Listening to series and so glad of the length of them. Paul Boehmer brings the story to life with such emotion I can see everything that's happening.
I've read this series years ago so listening to it now audibly its hard to turn off. Beginning last in series and just don't want it to end.
I'm a pretty tough critic but this book although slow starting, just blew me away in the last 2/3. Have to get past the sometimes unnecessary eroticism and fact that so many different characters with unusual names makes all of the subplots hard to follow, but nevertheless the story is just epic, love all the characters.
Incredible book great twists and overall plot I didn't see the end coming which I always a good thing. The only complaint I have is the narrator, he had a tendency to make some parts of the book childish like Doria, fier, and solon; he made them kind of seem like childish buffoons, and it seemed like they should've been taken more seriously. But truth is that I'm not the author and so I'm not %100 sure what weeks wanted them to be like incredible story five stars goes to this author for not making a second book that drags.
Becoming a fan of Kylar but don't like how there's no back story to some of the other characters. At the end of the book I didn't even realize that Elian was captured. I feel like she needs a little more back story if she's going to be Kylra's wife in the future instead she only gets a few chapters that doesn't really do her much good. Overall it's a good read, but I wouldn't read it again.
