I do not like mushy scenes and there are a few in this book, however, the transition away from physical romance to action is masterfully done. To carry the number of characters, each with thier own personality, desires, hobbies, and struggles through six books is a work of art that is performed at a high level in the entire series, but shines significantly in this sixth installment. Details are deftly woven into the structure of the story and give us a vivid image of events as they unfold from one section to another. The level of description, explanation, and character talk is a fantastic blend and I much appreciate the way character speech comes across normalized and unique for each individual.
A great ending to a wonderful series. Action packed and yet it answered many questions and wrapped up loose ends. Love the female narrator, but not the male. Maybe it was that their accents were different and therefore sounded jarring when they alternated. Glad to be done with this series.
Ok, yes, I confess. I'm another paranormal geek.
Why oh why did they switch narrators?! Now the female narrator has a British accent, and although she does a good job, the accent COMPLETELY changes the characters in my mind. It's like I'm listening to a whole different story! The characters have British accents now, too (well, not all of them... she does keep the accent out of a few of the characters...). The male narrator bored me. He is not a talented narrator, in my opinion. His character voices sound very similar, and he has the annoying of habit of pausing after every 5-10 words, even mid sentence. I also noticed he kept going back and forth between giving the characters British accents or not. It was inconsistent. I had a hard time finishing this book the first time, and am struggling through it again as I relisten to the series. This just does not fit with the rest of the books! :(
Didnt want to stop listening. Entertaining story and narration. Great! Will list to again and refer to my friends.
loved the story seemed like it was going to be a finale then she changed her mind. like the ay she kept dropping hints to firther books with new characters. did not like the change in readers though after 5 books the same. having a new reader was...... distracting at first but in the end a good listen.
