    Any additional comments?

    I was excited to find this and listen, this is the world of Nocturna, a demon realm...well people have been going missing and it is time to get to the bottom of it! This short story was really great, and I hope JF adds more to this world in the future!!

    I WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND JEANIENE FROST AND TAVIA GILBERT BOOKS!!!

    Story
    "Another fun read. A bit heavier on the sex"

    I can count on Frost to create a fun adventure with great sex scenes, and this novelette doesn't disappoint in that regard. This one didn't get 5 stars from me only because I wasn't drawn to the characters and situation as quickly and as fully as I normally am in a Frost story, and necause I prefer her stories where the characters and and plot capture me fully before the sex comes in to ice the cake. Still, I enjoyed this, and think that I'll enjoy rereading it even more than the first read, now that I'll already know and love the characters. Tavia Gilbert was once again a good choice of reader.

    Story
    "Did I miss something?"
    Would you listen to Night’s Darkest Embrace again? Why?

    No. I don't generally listen to books a second time.


    Would you recommend Night’s Darkest Embrace to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you are a Frost fan, this is worth the read.


    What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tavia does an outstanding job in reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm Fallen, and I can't get up


    Any additional comments?

    The worst thing about this book is that for at least half the book, I kept thinking that I missed something. I kept going back to the book description, to see if I accidentally got the second book in a series. But no, this is the first. The book reads as if you should know about Nocturna, and the protagonist's early ventures there. It isn't until the very last chapters that she explains what happened back when she was a teen, and then it isn't even that compelling. I had a few books in my playlist, and i kept going to other books and then coming back to this. Oy, not one of the best of Frost's books. I will say that it ended okay, and if there was a second book, there is a story worth building on.

    Story
    "For younger readers than me"

    While this novella did a decent enough job of providing a diversion, it was not as interesting as the authors more fully developed works. It would likely be better received by the teen & early 20's set than someone like me on the far side of 40.

    Story
    "Disappointed, even Tavia didn't make it better"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe junior high.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeaniene Frost again?

    Yes, because I love at least 6 or 7 of her books. Her Cat and Bones, and her dark prince books.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She is one of my favorites, top 4. I just did not like her in this.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, I expected more from Jeanine.

    Story
    "Short"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I just totally missed it but I thought that this was part of the Night Prince series based on the cover art and probably just because audible suggested it to me with the series. It definitely isn't. So if you see the cover art and think "Oh, Vlad is on this cover too just like he is on the cover of the last three books I read, so this must be part of the Night Prince series," you are very wrong. These are completely new characters, same narrator, same cover art so it was confusing at first. It took me about thirty minutes to realize it wasn't a continuation or side story, but a completely different story. It wasn't bad, it was interesting once I realized I was reading something different, but then it ended. I felt like it was too short and left me with a lot of unanswered questions. I feel like this book could be expanded into its own series. Sometimes the narrator is over the top (I think she does that a few times in the Night Prince series too) but overall she is good.

    "Great read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely! This book grabbed me and kept me interested until I devoured it. I wish it was longer; it definitely had the potential to be a great series. I couldn't seem to put it down. Great book!

    "Just okay"

    Tavia's narration is wonderful as always but the rebellious female lead is a but juvenile and played out.

    Love her book series and Tavia's readings but this one was far too short. I want more stories about them!
