Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author P. C. Cast's Goddess Summoning series continues as a modern woman attempts to tame a wild beast with the power of love.

Empousai family roses have bloomed for centuries, thanks to the drops of blood their women sacrifice for their gardens. But Mikki would rather forget this family quirk and lead a normal life. Until she unwittingly performs a ritual, ending up in the strangely familiar Realm of the Rose. As its goddess Hecate reveals, Mikki is a priestess - and the Realm's been waiting for her.

Long ago, an enraged Hecate cursed her guardian beast and the entire Realm with a slumber only a priestess can undo - and she's counting on Mikki to set things right. The beast at first terrifies Mikki, but soon intrigues her more than any man ever has. Now, the only way he and the Realm can be saved is for Mikki to sacrifice her life-giving blood - and herself.

Need to re-record with a new voice actor.

I love these books but CAN NOT make it through the first chapter on this audio book. The first few books I read myself then thought to buy this book in audible. The voice actor is not good at all. The way she ends each sentence is driving me crazy. she sounds like shes in a constant state of orgasm when she is talking about normal things. Wish I could get my money back and just read the book myself.

A Terribly Beautiful World.

I absolutely love listening to Caitlin Davies' narrations. When she speaks I can feel more passion and emotion from the characters' viewpoints. P.C. Cast just has a magical way of making everything come to life through her stories with or without a narration. I especially love this story because I have a very strong female personality like Mikki who knows what she wants and what she can't stand. Period. Bravo Ladies! Another fantastic piece!

BEAUTIFUL

I love all of the Goddess books but GODDESS OF THE ROSE is at the top of my list(#1).
To love someone for all that they are , and choosing others before yourself is what you will take from this beautifully written book; enjoy everything it has to offer I know I did.

Love the series

This book was a wonderful listen. I loved this book as much as I had books 1 and 2 in the series. I was a little disappointed in the 3rd book but this one gave me the same emotional roller coaster I had with the first two and I loved it. Written very well and nothing is quite what you expect or how you envision it should go which to me makes it even more enjoyable. The series is unlike any other I’ve read or listened too and I would suggest it to anyone looking for a twist on a romance novel.

Slow plot line

Maybe if this was the first goddess series I listened to, I would have thought better. But after goddess of the sea and goddess of love, this book is boring in comparison. Caitlyn Davies is an awesome narrator, I love all her different voices. After listening to goddess of love I wanted to get all the goddess summoning series. But after this book, I’m disappointed, and concerned the other books may put me to sleep as much as this one.

Love the story, Hate the narration.

This has always been a favorite story of mine, I own both the paperback and the ebook, and was hoping to add the audio book to my collection, but dear god, the narrative is awful! With weird inflections, strange pauses, and an overly acted voice, I could barely stand to listen. Maybe the narrator just hadn't read the book before starting, or this was her first time recording her voice, but whatever the situation, she was all over the place, and the narrative felt forced, leading to a highly unenjoyable experience. Very disappointing.

Good but not my favorite

I enjoyed the story but compared to some of PC's other goddess books this one was not up to what I wanted. Still well written and beautiful.

Great book and series.

I read many bad reviews and I feel they did not give the book justice. I too loved the beast and he was recreated in this amazing tale.

Ms Davies narration is like nails on a chalkboard!

Caitlin Davies narration was so annoying! The inflections of her speech was so off. She would put to much infusise on certain parts of a sentience that it would sound like a question or like she was surprised with every sentience. There was no easy flow to her telling of this story. It's like she was trying to hard and failed miserably. The story itself is a good book. I like this author. Just need a new narrator.

The narration

The only thing that ruins this story is the aweful naration. The narator dose not pause when there's a clearly a full stop, makes the main male character sounds like a dieing grandmother..?
The tone and way this books is narrated makes it annoying to listen to, absolute waste of credit.

Hmmmm

Would you try another book written by P. C. Cast or narrated by Caitlin Davies?

Caitlin Davies has a very strange way of narrating this book. At times her inflections make it sound like a computer simulation is reading the book not a real live person. Maybe it's her accent, but it is very strange and noticeable and at times annoying.

I feel as if it’s being narrated by a machine

Unfortunately I can’t tell you how the actual story progresses even though I have been a fan of this author for a while... I will buy the hard copy of this book to read in the future however I am unable to stand the uncomfortable unhuman like tone of the narration a moment longer... it is as if it was being read by the ‘speaking clock’. My mistake for not listening to the ‘sample’ before buying the audio book (a mistake I will not make again). Utterly disappointed.
