This book, the story, is full of wry wit and humor, especially between Simon and Gillaine, and some serious interactions -- rather like life.
The perfect narrator for this book would be someone who could read the characters and situations instead of just the words. The perfect narrator would be able to do male characters with enough differences that you could tell who was who. And the perfect narrator could nuance humor. To me, this narrator failed on all counts. Not to say she isn't a clear and capable speaker, just not the person for this book.
I would suggest fans of the genre (or the book, if you've already read it) to skip this audio version, buy the book and spend some down time with it, your favorite beverage, and a little chocolate.

I've read a few sci-fi romance that just ended up being alien men that were just like human men but bigger. This was not that. All the characters were human, (I think) but it was more like if the human race spread out over the next 5000 years and how different cultures would come from that. I wasn't really expecting the magic elements although they didn't detract from the book.
I really enjoyed it. The romance was slow. This wasn't your typical erotica porn. I liked it that way for the most part. While there was an instant connection between the two it wasn't unrealistic soulmates and undying love at first sight. It felt a little more real and was given time to progress and make you want to see them get together.
I thought the plot was interesting. Waking up centuries after an epic space battle to discover the people you saved thought you were a god. Interesting.
