He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

The narrator's Russian accent had a disconcerting way of slipping into a Scottish brogue every once in a while. Overall, though, I can overlook that because this is probably my favorite book of the series. #VoicesFromTheGrave #Suspenseful #Heartfelt #Mindbending #Violent #TorturedHero

I read this book and the author is one of my all-time favorites. So I thought I'd enjoy the audiobook. Not with this narrator. He sounds like a smoker who can't get his breath. I couldn't finish listening past the first chapter.

Wiping out humanity is his number one objective - until he meets her. Aramus has no patience or sympathy for the excuses humanity uses to hunt cyborgs down and eradicate them. He's put up with too much at their hands to ever forgive and forget. But all that changes when he rescues a fragile human doctor who refuses to see him as a machine. She teaches him that perhaps not all emotions are a weakness and that love can make even a cynical cyborg like him stronger. And for those who'd mock his change of view or threaten his female? Go ahead. His knuckles could use some exercise.

My favorite series from one of my favorite authors, I fell in love with the cranky cyborg who believed he hated humans from the moment he was introduced by the author. I was excited to hear that Logan McAllister was the narrator for Aramus' book and he did not disappoint. This is easily one of my favorite books, both to read and to listen to. #Suspenseful #Heartfelt #Mindbending #Violent #TorturedHero

It was supposed to be a simple mission. Locate a kidnapper’s vessel. Rescue the woman. Return her home. Collect a reward. Instead, the first mate of the Gypsy Moth finds himself married to a galactic crime lord’s daughter and fighting off those that would make her a widow. Busy watching his back while keeping her safe, Damon misses the deadliest attack of all. The one on his heart. She’s taken it, and he’s got to decide whether giving up his freedom is worth the price of love.

This was a fun story line. What was supposed to be a quick rescue turned into what can only be termed a romantic comedy. Damon, who didn't think he wanted a wife, found that he really needed Michi. My favorite line..."What did you do to my penis?" #Funny #HappyEnding

Everyone's heard of the mysterious Moon Ghost Jaguars, supposed shape-shifting men who steal women as their brides. What they forgot to mention was that half-naked, ripped, and oh, so delicious, they always came in pairs - and turned into really big freakn' cats! But Carlie's not about to let these furry Tarzans dictate her future, even if they seem to have conquered her body.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Only an insomniac would enjoy this performance. I have listened to other performances by Abby Crayden but this one was so boring I couldn't get through a chapter and a half.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I barely made it through the first thirty minutes.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden and Sean Crisden ?

I have no idea but they just didn't do it for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom. Serious boredom.

Any additional comments?

I wanted to scream at the 'heroine' to stop whining.
