Perfection.

This is the best love story I’ve ever listened to. If I read it, would’ve been the best I’ve read. It is a thriller, action movie, lesbian romance all in one fantastic book. If that’s intriguing, get this book ASAP. If crime, mobsters, serial killers, and or lesbians secretly intrigue you (not in the dark sense, in the fascination sense), this book is your dream come true. I’m sitting at 4 minutes remaining and find myself sad it’s over.

Thank you Lee Winter, Anais Ibarra Chase, and Audible for allowing me to indulge in this fantastic book.

Absolutely nothing but Brilliant

Struggling to not finish in one settings without life getting in the way. Intralling and breathtaking trilling rational thoughts. In this undeniably beautiful way of thinking story. I have lost words on how the story took me away and A. Chase read it was just BRILLIANT. There is nothing in love that cannot be given freely for a good heart. Got lost in the voice and couldn't not stop.

Edgy and compelling storytelling

I'm glad I got past the distasteful sadomasochism scene and stuck with the story. Five star plot, characters, suspense and action. Looking forward to more audiobooks from this author and a talented narrator. I prefer the narrators with Aussie or Kiwi accents. (Pls choose those over the less talented genre standby for lesbian romance in American English.)

A Captivating Story!

I have truly become a fan of Lee Winter’s books. She’s an amazing writer and develops interesting characters. In this book Requiem/Natalia is a freelance assassin and a concert cellist. She lives for the thrill of the hunt of her next target and her music.Requiem is a loner and someone who’d doesn’t believe in showing her feelings. And then there is Allison, also a loner, and a woman so many have underestimated. Their story is definitely worth reading. And Anais Ibarra Chase is a superb narrator, who brings both characters to life. Get this book!

Excellent!

I loved Requiem for Immortals. I loved the suspense, the romance, and the characters. I had already read the book, but the audio edition is excellent. Anais Inara Chase did an amazing job with the narration.

An okay listen overall <3

I enjoyed the australian reading and variety of voices for the characters. Anais Inara Chase has a lovely voice, but it was read way too slow for me. I occasionally had to listen at 1.1x speed. I got used to it eventually as the story went along.

Natalya Tsvetnenko aka Requiem (41): She’s hot but she’s the cold blooded daughter of a military man. Trained in the art of cello and lethal assassination, specializing in the corrupt aussie underworld. Often going after vial men. Now hired for a no questions asked kill at double the fee. (I love an ice queen but she tittered on the edge of unlikable at times)

Alison Ryan (34): Forced to take care of her ill/acid tongued mother, government worker, lover of classical music, with no dirt on her personnel file. Very unlike any of Natalya’s marks. At first glance she’s described by the assassin as a “tiny mouse of a creature” that “broadcasted helplessness”.

What a pair…

I love the hold Alison has over Natalya despite Natalya thinking she’s always in control and not even being able to explain it herself. There’s a plot switch starting at chapter 19 to a flashback from Alison’s POV. I saw a lot of reviews saying this change lulled the story for them but I disagree. I think it opened things up (especially the mystery). I always love seeing different side of the story.

Overall it was very well written as all Lee Winter tales are. But, as I said, the pace of the story and performance were a little too slow for my taste. First time I had to take breaks which is surprising compared to my other experiences with LW’s books. Still I’m glad I chose this book. This was a cool twist from my usual genre, wlw romance, with the mystery/crime plot.

I liked the music motif. How it related to Natalya’s values and her/Alison’s different views.

What I expect from Lee Winter..

I’ve read most of Lew Winter’s books & this one was right along the same lines of the rest. It’s always well written with a unique plot/setting, which makes it enjoyable. But nearly every single story features an untouchable “ice queen” who others hate but ends up being melted & beguiled by their complete opposite. Requiem is the most distinctive character & yet I feel like I’ve read/heard this story before because it’s so similar to the other books. I still gave it overall 4 star rating because if it’s your first exposure to Winter you’ll likely enjoy it quite a bit.

Also, this narrator just didn’t do it for me. The audio version could’ve been MUCH shorter if her narration was so dang slow & at times extremely flat. The drama of the story was missing from her telling of it. I actually had to backtrack & re-listen to a couple chapters because I dozed off more than once. Her voice & cadence quite literally put me to sleep. I may have overlooked the redundancy of Winter’s storyline had the narrator been different & caused me to get a little more lost in the story like in Red Files & Under Your Skin with Victoria Mei. I’m not a fan of Angela Dawe either so after suffering through audio version of Breaking Character & seeing Dawe was the narrator for all other Winter Audibles I decided to just read her other books. I rate them much higher that way lol sorry just not my preference

Completely blown away!

I absolutely loved this book and was greatly anticipating the audio version. Requiem is one of those brilliantly written characters who stays with you long after the read is over. The narrator really had to be skilled to pull this off and Anais Inara Chase did so in a major way. And not just with the Requiem character but the others as well - especially Alison and Lola, the latter being especially chilling. I was SO invested. I squealed, squirmed, held my breath, slid off my chair... and for the first time ever, actually physically shook after listening to a scene. No kidding - it completely got under my skin. What a thrilling way to experience Lee Winter's masterful work! WOW. And if that wasn't enough, as an added bonus - you get the follow-up short story Love is Not Nothing at the end to wrap up their story. Can't recommend it highly enough!
