The writing was atrocious. The narration was even worse. The narrators voice is monotone and tinny with very little inflection. If I could give this Zero stars I would!

The story was fantastic in itself but the narrator was very distracting. Charachter impersonations were a real struggle for her and it showed. I particularly disliked that she added a pronounced lisp to more than one of them.

Great story! And, I really enjoyed the sound effects as well as the multiple people performing specific characters. I would definitely purchase an audiobook that is performed like this again. The only thing worth mentioning is that the narration of Cassandra is pretty flat and monotone throughout the whole book. I realize she's supposed to be methodical, logical, and intelligent but I felt that if I had been reading the book to myself I would have imagined her with a little more passion. Minor irritation but it doesn't distract from the audiobook too much! I may just be being picky :-)

The story itself is pretty good. However, the performance of Justine Eyre was lacking. She came across as whiney which is pretty disappointing.

What would have made Predatory better?

Better editing, maybe?

Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

Yes, I usually like stories by these authors. But either writting novellas isn't their forte, or someone did some major hacking in the editing department.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arika Rapson?

She would actually be a decent narrator if she didnt make the characters sound like they were constantly whining. She sounded like she might have had some sinus issues going on.

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

Anger that I wasted a credit. I couldn't even finish. The narrator was whiney and there was hardly a distinction between charachters which made it difficult to follow at times. Not to mention the accents were pretty laughable.

What disappointed you about When Darkness Falls?

The whole thing. I usually love Heather Graham's work but I couldn't even force myself to finish this one. I tried... I really did! But alas, I only completed about 2/3 of it. What a shame to waste all that time to not even finish the darn book.

What could Heather Graham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I thought the charachters were poorly written. I could care less what happened to them. they were unlikable as well as a bit shallow and dull. The plot had no substance.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

Maybe.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy the occasional YA novel, but usually prefer more adult material like Kresley's IAD series. This story, however, completely blew me away! I didn't want to stop listening & whenever I had to I would find excuses to plug my headphones back in. Kresley Cole did another outstanding job with plot & character development. She really draws you in and you find yourself even caring about what happens to the not so nice people. I can't wait for Endless Knight to come out... I hope they keep Emma Galvin as the performer!

What would have made Fire Dance better?

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

I have no idea... I didn't make it that far.

What didn’t you like about Michael Page’s performance?

He should work on his delivery. He reads very well and has a nice voice but he somehow manages to make the hero sound like a pompous a$$ and the heroine like a weak ninny. He completely fails to establish the hero's sense of humor or kindness. Don't even get me started on the heroin's voice!

Any additional comments?

I was a bit dissapointed. This might have been a good book had I been reading the paperback version.
