Although I did get my happy ending I found this story very frustrating. Yes, there was a lot of action. Yes, the men where hunky, Yes the story was ..Show More »compelling. But the women never seemed to stand up for themselves. I was very irritated numerous times throughout the entire book because of this. It seemed that the misunderstandings were so manufactured. And you wanted to yell, "Get a freakin clue!" But that's just me. I kept thinking that the heroine and the supporting heroines would break out and stand up for themselves. Sadly, it didn't happen. I did get one good glimpse of that, but then she went back to covering her head in the sand.
I found myself reading other books in between listening to this one. So, I am not to sure if I would order another. But, hey, there is still hope. One of the sisters might just step up to the plate and grow a backbone :)
I am hoping that books 1 and 2 will be coming to Audible soon, but if not, I would recommend reading them first and then buying this audio book. I am ..Show More »a huge fan of paranormal romance and these books are great. This is a continuation from book 2, so it is not really a stand alone story.
I was not prepared to love Demetrius as much as I did by the end. He has been a pain in the neck in the past 2 books, and I was not sure how sympathetic and forgiving I was going to be. But he had his reasons and this book really made me his fan.
I loved Isadora from book 1 and 2 and it was good to see her get a soul mate.
This book has great characters, a good plot line that arcs multiple books and is well written and well paces. I highly recommend the audio book if you can read book 1 and 2 first.
Since he was introduced in Marked, the first book in the Eternal Guardians series, I have been itching for more Nick. While we have seen him in every ..Show More »book and even got his POV briefly, nothing prepared me for his darkness. Oh, Nick, you dirty, dirty boy. *swoons*
So much time had passed since Bound, book six in the Eternal Guardians series, was released that I had forgotten very important details. I started Twisted and was completely lost. So what's a girl to do? I decided it was a fine time for a series re-read and when I discovered that Twisted would be released in audio format even though it was self-pubbed, I decided to feed my audiobook addiction and buy the whole series. I'm soooo glad I did. While I was slow to warm to her, Elisabeth Wiley ended up being a great narrator for this series and I thoroughly enjoyed my re-read.
I will admit, Twisted wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Elisabeth Naughton is phenomenal when it comes to world building and maybe due to Zagreus' lair being somewhat lame and tamer than I was expecting, I was a tad disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the torture was definitely there, it was just much less torturey than what we dealt with in Gryphon's book, Enslaved. I'm not saying that Nick was treated well while in Zagreus' prison, but we certainly didn't get the details that I needed to feel that Nick had really suffered there. Due to that and how easily the book was resolved, I didn't enjoy Twisted as much as I did the last couple of books in the series.
All that said, Twisted was super smexy as well as action packed, I really liked Cynna, Ari was a fantabulous addition to the mythology, and I'm beyond thrilled that Ms. Naughton decided to continue this series on without a publisher. There are sooooo many great series that are cut short because they don't get extended contracts and this is a series that would have left many unsatisfied if it had just ended. So I want to say thank you, Elisabeth, for continuing on with this world and making your readers very happy. I truly would have been heartbroken had I not gotten more of the Eternal Guardians.
