Entertaining Sherrilyn Kenyon & Dianna Love

Okay, I would rate this book truly a four stars, which is great for me, but I see the only other rater gave it a 1 and I think that is unfair. I am about tired of the same old-same old in the Dark Hunter series, even though, I do generally check them out at the library. I loved Acheron and there are a lot of other good Dark Hunter ones mixed in there, too, but some here lately have just not seen anything new and a little boring. If you like Kenyon, I believe you will enjoy this one, too.

Might be ok for some, not so much for me.

I'll start this review by saying that I absolutely love Sherrilyn Kenyon, particularly her Dark Hunter series. I'm not familiar one way or another with the other author, Dianna Love, but I've read and adored nearly everything Sherrilyn Kenyon has churned out.

That being said, I didn't particularly get into this story, and I have given a lot of thought as to why I didn't. Firstly, I'm not so much into the "one tough chick get's 10 books written about her life, loves and escapades" series. I love a good series, but like books in a series that carry along a common background story, but focus on different main characters in each book.

Second, it's hard for an author to make a "tough chick" believable or someone I can relate to. To do so, they need to add in some normal girly things, like a great love of shoes or something. Otherwise, I have a hard time seeing them as even remotely feminine.

My third reason also relates to the heroine. If I am to believe the motives for her doing certain things the authors present, then she is an extremely arrogant sort who believes that others aren't nearly as capable as she is so she withhold information to "protect" them.

These 3 reasons are personal and related to me specifically, not so much a criticism of the book as a partial explanation of why this book didn't work for me.

I thought that my forth reason might have just be me, but after reading some other reviews, I somehow doubt it. This book was complicated to the point of not making sense much of the time. There were so many characters, so many different beings and entities, so many scenarios mentioned as to be a bit overwhelming. The explanations as to the why's and what's were often jumbled and at least once that I can think of contradictory. The book was so hard to follow that I finally just decided to give up trying to keep up and just listen to the end so that I can say I gave it a chance.

My fifth reason is that apparently there was a novelette of events that occurred before this one, which is referred back to often. Since this book is touted as being the first book in the series, I feel this is the fault of the authors/publishers for not making that clear.

And last but not least, the ending was not an ending. It was a stopping place. Even in series, I like for there to be a concrete ending to each book, leaving you satisfied but still wanting to dive into the next book. All I felt at the end of this book was relief that it was over.

Can't bear to listen

The narrator is so bad, I can't follow the story. Her stilted delivery makes it impossible to realize what words go together within a sentence, let alone understand the story line. It's nearly as bad as a mechanized verbalization of a written document. I've heard some really bad narrations and have always been able to adapt to their style, but not this time. Wish I could give half stars...I wouldn't have rated the story, as I ddin't hear it, but have to for the review. Please don't use my evaluation of that for other formats of the story...but don't listen to it unless they get another narrator...going to read this on my kindle...

Good story, Terrible narrator

Normally, if I listen to a book I don't go out of my way to find it in print but will just pick it up when I run across it. In this case, however, the narration is so poor that I continually find myself thinking about that rather than the story. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's work so I'm sure I'm missing out on a great story.

Slow

This would be better but it's really slow. The narrator did a really good job bringing the book to life. But she couldn't fix the slow pace of the story.

ehhh

I only listened to about a quarter of the way and had to turn it off. The story is fascinating but Christina's voice is what I couldn't handle. Her voice isnt bad, but she reads in one voice. Theres no switching it up for different characters, no real emotion. I'll read the book to find out the end for I love Sherrilyn Kenyon, and the story is good!

I had High hopes since SK was a co author

This was so underwhelming and I had a hard time getting through it. The world building was lacking beyond belief especially the parts where it explains how ghouls become corporeal by a hand shake?? WTF anyhow if you have time to kill and don't mind wasting money give it a shot. At least Audible lets you return it if its not to your cup of tea as it wasn't mine.

Great BEGINNING to This Series

Wanted to read this series because I am a big Kenyon fan. Her Dark-Hunter series is more my cup of tea but this was pretty good, it kept my interest and was full of action.
