Publisher's Summary

The way Evalle Kincaid sees it, saving mankind from total destruction should have cleared her name. But when words uttered in the heat of combat are twisted against her, she’s blamed for the prison break of three dangerous Alterants. She has one chance to clear the cloud of suspicion hanging over her... for good. All she has to do is recapture the escapees. But deals with gods and goddesses are tricky at best, and now the lives of all Beladors, and the safety of innocent humans, rides on Evalle’s success. The only person she can ask for help wants to see her dead.

Crack the Belador Code.

Book 2 in Alterant series

While waiting for the next books in Sherrilyn Kenyons Dark Hunter, League and the new Ciprian series I stumbled across the Alternate series she coauthored. The books each take place in 2-3 days time in the main charactor, Deval's (dee-vol) life, each new book picks up exactly where the last stopped (with no resolution the story) so you definately need to read them in order. The authors do a good job explaing each charactor and the unique circumstances with gods, demons, psychics, witches, alterants and even a gargoyle who live among and protect man kind. I listen to my books while driving 200-400 miles a week and enjoy the way the reader captures seperate charaters giving them personalities and voice.

Horrible

This is nothing like Sherrilyn canyons dark hunter work. This book was filled with stupidity beyond believe with her characters she's made her characters gullible before but not this bad I feel like this is not a good book to pass along I thought it would get better but it did not it just seemed as if the characters became more idiotic as the book when all I hope this does not transfer into the Chronicles of Nick and or the dark hunter series that are more famous and away better 10 😞☹️😫😤🤔🤢👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

The plot thickens

The more good Eval tries to do the more trouble she ends up in. What will she do when she confronts Quinn about Kazeria . Is Storm really alive or someone playing a cruel joke ? Can Tristan really be trusted ? Can Tzader hold up his vow and free Breana ? All this and more to hopefully be answered in the next book !

I don't like the narrator.

I don't like that the narrator is male. If your main character is female then it makes sense to me to have a female narrator. This was the case
In the first book. Also the narrator pronounces some of the words differently than in book 1.

Information Overload.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Although I enjoyed this book I found it difficult to listen to and it took me longer than usual. I felt that the story line was complicated with lots of characters, different species and so if you were not paying 100% attention you missed what was going on. I felt like I spent a lot of time hitting rewind to figure out what happened. I listen to audiobooks so I can do thing around the house or workout. This way I am not glued to the couch. Unfortunately this for me was harder to do. Having said all that I did like the book. I read the first book and could not remember it all so got the audio version and then decided to continue with the audio version. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon and have ready just about everything she has written. I would not say this is my favorite of her books but I did not hate it.

What other book might you compare Alterant to and why?

Gena Showalter's "The Lords of the Underworld" Not necessarily the content but lots of characters and species, Gods and Goddesses, multiple different powers and plot twists. I love this series and have recommended it to friends.

Did Holter Graham do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I had to get adjusted to a male voice narrating the book since it was a female voice in the first book. I could not understand why the author changed the narrator from the first book. If you are going to change the narrator then he should have at least pronounced key works the same. I drove me nuts and I kept wanting to correct his pronunciation. I read the books back to back so I suppose if you had to wait in between each release it might not have been so weird.

Was Alterant worth the listening time?

Overall I am still happy I listened to the book. I wish there was more of a love story in it. I think that it was an enjoyable book but you need to dedicate time to your listening to ensure you follow along.

Any additional comments?

I am a great fan of this author and will continue to read her work.
