Publisher's Summary

In HeartMate, Robin D. Owens swept us away to the planet Celta, where psychic talents are the key to life - and love. Midwest Book Review predicted that listeners "will want Ms. Owens to return to Celta for more tales." And the prophesy has come true - with Heart Thief....

Ruis Elder never asked for his unusual trait - the ability to neutralize others' psychic talents. Because of it, he has always been hated in his own homeland, destined to roam the harsh planet alone. But trouble finds him in front of the ruling Council - and face-to-face with the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. There's only one problem: Ailim is on the opposite side of the bench....

Ailim has never before felt such passion coursing through her as she feels in Ruis' presence. And she never thought she would - at least not with a man so far beneath her station, a man who does not even have psychic powers. But even on the planet Celta, love is blind to such details. Separately, Ailim and Ruis must forgo their old lives. But together, they can take on the world....

Can't wait for the rest of the series!

Would you consider the audio edition of Heart Thief to be better than the print version?

Yes! The narrator captures the different voices perfectly! Ruis is very cultivated, T'Ash is very abrupt, Samba is very playful and Zanth is annoying.

Null Heartmates.

While I liked this book, it took a while for anything to really happen. The first part was Ruis arrest and then it was a slow budding romance. While good I tend to like a bit more to my stories. The second half was better but the ending was a bit confusing as an audio, a lot of the characters names sound similar and I had to rewind a bit to figure out what was happening. I like all the animals/fams in the book. I also like the world building and am going to try another book sometime in the future, this series is just not one I want to listen to the books back to back. Narrator does a better job in this book than in Heartmate.

Yea for Robin D Owens

So glad Robin's books are finally on audio. Love ALL her writings. The narration is good but would be just that much better with a male and female narrating

The story is fantastic

Would you consider the audio edition of Heart Thief to be better than the print version?

No, unfortunately. The print version (kindle version) was more enjoyable but only because of the readers creation of odd accents.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Heart Thief?

SPOILER ALERT:When the ship showed its affection for Ruis.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think the narrator could have read the story and still kept it interesting and have the different characters recognizable without giving each of them a separate accent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

II really enjoy everything I have read by Robin D. Owens. I like that her characters are not perfect. They have struggles, they make mistakes, and often learn from their mistakes and grow as people even when they are no longer the main characters. I love the fams (family pets who can talk and more). I enjoy a science fiction/fantasy story. The reader has a nice voice and is listenable. However, I found it distracting that he changed accents for most of the characters. He read it so that family members in the same household and people in the same city of the same station and class spoke with different accents from each other. Yes, it is possible for people in a family to speak with different accents. However it is less likely that every family would have a different accent. That being said I enjoyed the story enough that I will listen again despite the odd accents. hope to see a lot more by Robin D. Owens at audible.
