    Story
    "The smarmiest volume yet!"
    What disappointed you about Lover Enshrined?

    Coitus interruptus (sp) three times?? Really? Phury's Wizard was soooo tiresome after about his second appearance.


    Spoiler alert!!!



    The sunshine and butterflies ending with the Chosen at Revenge's camp a month later, fighting to use the vacuum? Puh-LEEZ.

    Phury's Wizard got pretty tiresome.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. Ward again?

    Yes. I plan to finish the series. This one filled in the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lover Enshrined?

    At least one of the "almost" love scenes between Phury and Cormia.

    "Wonderful Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Enshrined the most enjoyable?

    When the Blackdagger Brotherhood was recommended to me I thought I would not J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.like it, based on title alone. I couldn't be more wrong! I instantly fell in love with the books!

    Story
    "A lot going on"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Enshrined the most enjoyable?

    The narrator really makes this story. For some reason this story wasn't quite as interesting as some of the other books. Without the narrator I would have never tried another on of J.R.Ward books.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Corrines transformation. She always want to be an individual and she gets her chance and helps others also get there's. The least interesting was Phury's addiction. I'm glad he gets a hold of it.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have heard Frangione narration, and he makes the series, because his voice brings dimension to the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment that I thought was important was when Quinn was made John Matthews protector and his life was spared after supposedly killing Lash.


    Any additional comments?

    The Best Vampire series.

    "Love it"
    Would you listen to Lover Enshrined again? Why?

    Yes. Great story but twisted in a way, keeps you on the edge of every chapter


    What did you like best about this story?

    How it's not from one person perspective.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    All, he changes his voice just slightly when he's talking for different characters. He does a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried, I noticed that if the character was upset and emotional that I was too.

    "phury and oh so much more"

    This is one of my favorite books in the series. I think it is because you learn so much about a variety of characters w/o taking away from Phury's story.

    It also makes it clear that no matter how perfect a life seems there are always battles we must endure that make us who we are.

    I was worried about Jim Frangione being able to stay with the books and SO glad he has. The performance is wonderful, as is the writing. These books make my commute tolerable!

    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to all 6 books so far. But I was very disappointed with this book. It was very boring and JR Ward made Phury sound pathetic!!!!!!! I had already downloaded the whole series because I loved the first 3 books. But I hope that going forward the stories are much better than this book. As for the narrator, he really needs to add different voices and continue them throughout the whole series; instead all the males and females have the same voices.

    Story
    "Not my favorite"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Though Phury is not my favorite Brother, this is an important book with so many side stories that are necessary for future books, and most important, it is the beginning of Qhuinn and Blay!


    If you’ve listened to books by J. R. Ward before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to both BDB and Fallen Angel books by J.R.Ward through Audible.com and by far the Fallen Angel series better. The narrator on that series is more animated and has multiple voices. This narrator is just a disappointment.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I liken this narrator to Joe Friday. There are no emotions. He had one voice change for one character... a very poor English accent that he carried over into the narration at times. There was no change from male to female. No excitement, no...anything. After hearing many different narrators I can say with a certainty that Jim Frangione should either take voice and acting lessons or look for other work. I know that sounds harsh, but I hate to pay for sub-par products. If there were a way to get my money back, I would.
