Publisher's Summary

Lethally sexy undercover agent Stefan Prakenskii knows a thousand ways to kill a man-and twice as many ways to pleasure a woman. So he's looking forward to his new mission: arrive in the coastal town of Sea Haven and insinuate himself in the life of Judith Henderson, an ethereal beauty with ties to the crime lord he's determined to trap...

Repetitive

I like Christine Feehan's books usually but I found Spirit Bound to be fairly boring most of the way through. Too much repetition in describing characters and their circumstances. I found myself fast forwarding through much of the book. The ending was okay but could have been better I feel.

Felt like relationship councling.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. I didn't really enjoy all the emotional healing/counceling talk. I suppose I couldn't connect with this aspect of the story. I'm sure others can.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Typical HEA and sweet. Nothing that 'WOW'ed me.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was a 3 star (meaning: I liked the performance, not 4 stars='really liked' or 5 stars='the best I've experienced'). He was decent and did a decent job on the female voices (I've heard worst).

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. It is not original enough.

Any additional comments?

Spirit Bound is an enjoyable story with sweet talk that any woman would want to hear from her man. I just don't find the story all that original. Give it a try, you might enjoy it. It wasn't totally unworthy of my credit.

Lots of sex, not enough story!

Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Don Harvey?

I was looking forward to learning more about Rikkii's sisters but this book left a lot missing. If your looking for an erotic story this is it. Not much else here though. So sad! The first book in the series was very interesting but this one not so much!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The plot needs more!!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Narration not bad but missed the narrator form the Drake Sisters. Should have used the same one.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

More romance, not as much sex.

Any additional comments?

Might try the next book, hope it's as good as the first one. So sad, another narrator again!

Why the new narrator

Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Don Harvey?

Christine - yesDon - no

Would you recommend Spirit Bound to your friends? Why or why not?

Not the audio book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice was not right for this series. All the guys sounded alike and the girls sounded like guys. When Stefan was talking to Judith I couldn't tell who was who. Additionally, the Russian accent was missing all together. Should have used same narrator from the Drake series to continue the Sea Haven series. I waited for this one and I was soooooo disappointed!!

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A better narrator

Wordy and redundant

This installment of the saga is very emotional/sensitive story of vindication. The has (I think) a little much sex in it. A harden assassin is after you, stop having sex and let’s start constructing a plan to stay alive. You can have all the sex you want after he’s dead.

Too similar

This was exactly the same story as water spirit. Kind of stupid and a waste of time to read.

Hardly comparable to the previous master pieces of Feehan

While the characters are interesting, there is WAY too much repetition of everything: circumstances, what Judith means to Stephan and vice versa. It was seriously a bit boring. The sex was fine, almost just the right amount (it's more prevalent in the Dark series). I understand that there must be some suspense to sell the next book, but I would have appreciated knowing more about Jean-Claude's fate. I fast forwarded a good part of the book.

So unbelievably SLOW and unimaginative!

Wow! I got through the first 4 chapters out of sheer dedication to not quit what I started. I kept hoping to care about these 2 main characters but could not. I liked the first book in this series although it was pretty slow but this one is just painful.

Decent story - unfortunate narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book is entertaining and the plot is fresh. There was a fair amount of melodrama that I could've done without, but it kept me listening over a long drive.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Spirit Bound?

When Judith is first able to control her powers and weave them all together.

What didn’t you like about Don Harvey’s performance?

The voices sound the same, and it OFTEN sounds like he's ending a sentence then discovers there are a few more words left in the sentence. The inflection is off.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Better narration. Sorry!
