I first got The Witches of East End out of curiosity because I live on Long Island and I really enjoyed it. So I followed up with this second book and wasn't dissappointed. Good story, lots of interesting characters.
Katie has a pure tone. Intellegent, but also down to earth.
This book was some what difficult to get through. Not a lot of action. It is a book that leads up to the excitement and action that is to come.
Did not feel the story or writing style remotely compared to her previous books
Yes. This one book did not change my opinion of her overall works
not with this narrator
I ended up using the text to speech on my kindle and reading the book myself as I was very distracted by the poor narration.
The story did not develop as fast as I would like.
Her voice became stronger it drove me nuts at first.
Yes it is a series ended in cliff hanger.
Melissa De La Cruz is one of my favorites. I will continue to recommend her books but I will definitely suggest Serpent's Kiss in a self-read format instead of audio book. Melissa went terribly wrong with the reader/performer for this one. Not only did the reader have an annoying preteen voice that made it nearly impossible to focus on the storyline, but the irritating voice sounded rediculous when citing explitives and was obscene when reading the more riske love scenes. Melissa, please rethink the immature, "Valley Hurl" voice for future audio books.
Hard to tell. Took me months to finish this one because of horrible reader performance.
No! I will definitely remember her name and avoid her performances like the plague.
No. I may read it but the reading performance was a distraction that inhibited focus on the storyline. It was easy to lose interest, miss details and resulted in having to rewind many, many times.
