Once again Jordan has crafted a wonderful and entertaining world with Hexslayer. I was immersed and submerged, and nearly drowned in the rich details and exciting plot twists.
The narration is excellent. There are a lot of characters and dialogue but I only found myself questioning who was speaking once or twice. That’s really good in my opinion. It’s too often I struggle with keeping characters straight when a narrator’s reading dialogue.
I did not give this story 5 stars, which is unusual for me when it comes to Jordan's books. I felt that there was not enough romance between the two main characters. I am not talking sex, I am talking about love or emotional connection. In the other Hexworld stories I found the two men to be deeply bonded and connected, and there wasn't that dynamic present in this one.
After pondering why I felt this way I think it was because of the ending. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I didn't receive the usual satisfaction I get at the ending of a romance novel. It ended too quickly after a major incident (well really a month had passed by) but that made it even less romantic. The end felt like almost an afterthought, or tacked on to give some small closure rather than the thought processes that led the characters to their final actions. I would have enjoyed a bit more insight into the feelings and thoughts that led to the final few paragraphs. Other than that it was awesome (as I expect in her stories) Jordan is a masterful storyteller--I am looking forward to seeing the Hexworld saga continue!

The mystery and intensity of this series keeps growing more and more and I LOVE IT.
Of course the narration made it more so. Tristan James is just a gem. He nailed this performance perfectly as usual.
Jamie was such a strong character despite all he’d been through. He gave as good as he got which was particularly true when it came to Nick. He wasn’t forceful, No, but he didn’t let himself be pushed around / bullied by Nick.
Speaking of Nick, he annoyed me in the initial stages of the book because I kept wondering why he was so damn rude and angry all the time. It became clearer why as the story went on .
Additionally , as I began to understand his thought processes and motives, I began to warm up to him.
The writing here was impeccable as usual. There was no way to predict how the story would go and the final showdown both thrilled and terrified me in equal measure while keeping me on the edge of my seat all throughout.
I’m definitely continuing this series till it’s final book no doubt. I do wonder if Isaac’s book is next. Doesn’t matter to me though, if Tristan James does the audio, I’m listening to it. Period. :D
