Publisher's Summary

An angel with immense power and insatiable desire, Adrian Mitchell leads an elite Special Ops unit of the seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen - angels who have become vampires - and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.

But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn’t remember him. This time he won’t let her go.

With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson knows only that she can’t help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There’s more at stake than her love and her life - she could lose her very soul....

    "unimpressed...kept waiting for it to draw me in..."

    I have read Sylvia Day before. I'm unsure if it was the dialogue and lack of character development that was lacking or if it was the performance that didn't work for me. I felt like some of the character voices were amateur imitations of John Wayne, Jack Nicholson, etc. It became distracting. Once that started to click with me the dialogue was lost. Interestingly it was the male characters that bothered me the most. Usually with a male performer it is the female voices they have trouble with. In an effort to make all the male characters sound different, I think he fell back onto imitations. I wanted to like the characters but felt they were very underdeveloped. At some points I felt lost and uninterested. I did finish it but only after everything else in my library was already finished.

    "Not really a new twist but I still liked it."

    This book is a nice read. It has lots of blistering romance and sex but a lot of action to keep you on your toes to. The charactors are believable and you start to really care about them. the narration is good to. def a book you should try and I plan and reading and reviewing the next one as well.

    "Great Story Bad Narration"

    The story is a new realm for me. The idea of angels in love is kind of a heady thing. I wanted to be able to immerse myself in this story the way I have in other paranormal romances, but I couldn't. The narrator has a nice voice, but he sounded like he was reading a text book half of the time. There are some narrators that can pull you in on the first sentence of a book, while it took me a few chapters to get used to him reading. Only the story line made me listen to the entire thing. At one point I wanted to give up and read the book, which I probably will do because I couldn't pay attention to the entire story line because I was obsessed with the way the narrator was reading the book. If you can get past the voice, then this is a great story, I loved the explanation of why his wings are tipped in crimson :-) The characters are very believable and relate-able. I will continue to listen to the series because I'm hooked on the story line I just hope the don't use the same narrator.

    "Sylvia, Please Do Not..."

    Sylvia Day, Please do not write paranormal romances. Stick to contemporary Gideon Cross & the Crossfire Series!!!! You rock those books.

    The narrator did a fine job.

    I could not get into this book. Paranormal is not this author's forte', by any means.

    As a huge Sylvia Day fan, I feel so ashamed... But this book did NADA for me.

    Looking forward to Book #3 of the Crossfire Series....YEAH Sylvia!!!

    "Interesting world, but read badly!"

    I really like Sylvia Day's Crossfire series, so I wanted to see what she could do with a bit of the paranormal. The story itself is interesting but the narration is HORRIBLE. The guy sounds like "the agent" from the The Matrix and it's not too fun to be listening to a steamy scene with THAT voice....very bad pick there audio studio!

    The world is very complex, it has angels and demons and vampires, and somehow they are all related, but yet hunt each other, but only certain angels hunt certain vampires and so on...it's very complex like I said. The steamy scenes tried to be steamy, but once again THAT voice...*shudder*.

    I'll get the next one, just hope it has a different narrator.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    I really really loved this book, and I listened to it in about a day and half--I literally couldn't and didn't want to do anything else, I was captivated. I purchased the second book "A Hunger So Wild" first before realizing Touch of Crimson preceded it--not sure how I missed that this was a series--but, even knowing what the outcome would be didn't spoil this first book in the series. Great storyline, great characters, the narrator was perfect for these characters, and the main character Adrian was intoxicating just as Sylvia Day is so adept at conveying in all the books I've listened to by her. This book is about 'other worldly' beings that are trying to fulfill their earthly missions, but of course it gets all mucked up with betrayals, people having to pay for their 'sins', wrongful murders, and as always ultimately being overtaken by love, etc. Just my kind of book! Credit worthy or just buy it outright. Another awesome one by Sylvia Day, can't wait for the third installment.

    "A decent story..."

    Overall I'd say I enjoyed this story. It's not the best I've experienced but certainly far from the worst. This is one of those times when I think if I had actually read the story, I would have enjoyed it more with the voices my own imagination would have come up with. I do have to say that the reader (Luke Daniels) is acceptable for the most part but his voice for one of the angels was distracting for me (he sounded like Jack Nicholson, really...Jack Nicholson an angel?) and he often spoke far too slowly for many of the male characters. Apart from that though he was fairly believable. I'm definitely interested in looking up some of the subsequent stories in this series.

    "YES, YES, YES get this one"

    Oh you have to be a grown up to listen to this series it is sooo smart. If you are 21 or 71 this is a good choice. Grown ups because the emotions in this will make you wish, make you dream that 1 & 1 equal 2. Pay attention this could become a long running series and you will want to be there.

    There is forbidden love going on but its so honest that you don't know which way to go. You know it's good when your not exactly sure if it's okay to cheer for the bad guys in a book. Here comes the grown up part "who are the bad guys"?

    I have this and book 2 and have really enjoyed them they are so hot and spicy. Our narrator can deliver such a sense of control and heat at the same time. Good going Sylvia Day keep us coming back with these stories.
