A (bad) Harlequin romance with zombies
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This book is a Harlequin Luna imprint, described by its editor as a place for "female-focused fantasy." Well, it's poorly written and irredeemably cliched even for a Harlequin of any imprint, but it currently has a 4.1 average rating so it must appeal to people who like this sort of thing.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I have been craving light and humorous lately, and Carl Hiassen's Skinny Dip is fun enough so far. It reminds me of an episode of the Rockford Files with a sprinkling of Columbo.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
It wasn't the easiest book to read because the dialogue is so inane, but Therese Plummer does not do male voices well at all. I also found it irritating that the Illinois farmer was read as as a stereotypical southern hick.
What character would you cut from Dawn of Eden?
All of them.
Any additional comments?
There is a rather graphic sex scene. My understanding is that this is the prequel to a series geared more to YA audiences. This is definitely not YA. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Unnecessary but Decent Enough
After thouroughly enjoying the first book in the series, I was eager to dive into this one. Luckily it was only a few hours of seemingly wasted time. Any back story received from this was either already known or assumed. The only thing it provided was the initial motivation behind one character which was summed up in one line.
It felt like the author wanted to write a sexual/romantic part into the series, but didn't want to do it with the main characters. The last eighth or so of the book became interesting, but it ended shortly after. If it wasn't for the solid narration, the score would have been lower.
