Hard to say...I always both read and listen. But Mia Baron really needs to change her voice for the boyfriend Quinton. I just can't stand it anymore. She makes the character so whiny and dorky sounding. I seriously DOUBT the character of Harper Blaine would date ANYONE who sounded like this. Seriously, Mia...PLEASE change this voice. It's God awful.
Absolutely. This is one of my all time favorite urban fantasy series.
The build up was great throughout the book. The battle on the ship was very well done and exciting.
This was a great offering from Kat Richardson. I love Mia's voice, and have listened to her perform all 7 Greywalker novels. But it has gotten to the point where I can't stomach her males characterizations anymore. Especially Quinton, and Solis. She apparently cannot do a Columbian/Spanish accent, it drove me crazy to listen to her attempt, or lack there of. And her voice for Quinton is just annoying and unbearable at this point. Mia, please fix this!!!
I wasn't sure if this book would be as good as the previous ones since they had all built to what happened in the last book. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It took a different direction and developed some new characters. This series will definitely stay on my must buy list.
Excellent and well put together; good structure and plot, creating a world of wonderful fantasy. An heavy read with many twist and turns portraying new characters and denizens of the gray. New alliances an dangers.
I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy.
The Seawitch, a yacht that had been lost some 27 years before with all hands, returns mysteriously to port. Blaine Harper, wearing her insurance investigator hat, is brought in to try to determine where the ship had been and what happened to the crew. The insurance had paid out decades before so the Seawitch belonged to the Insurance company, but the still wanted to know if any fraud had been involved.
There was also evidence of a serious crime having been committed on board so Detective Sargent Rey Solis of the Seattle Police Department is also investigating. He and Blaine are locked in an uneasy relationship, considering Blaine's abilities and obligations as a Greywalker.
The story was pretty good although it dragged a bit in the middle. It was an interesting change from some of the other books in this series. There was a time in the series where I thought it was bogged down in the tiresome vampire tropes that seem to be dragging urban fantasy under. However this book and the one before head in a different and more interesting direction.
The only other complaint I had involved the narration. I've enjoyed Mia Barron in the past so it might be the fault of the producer rather than the narrator or maybe a technical error. However, the reading seemed just a touch too slow especially in the second half.
