Publisher's Summary

Forbidden temptations.
Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter - and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she's been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality... as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn't all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she's finally met the one man she cannot resist.
Fatal desires.
Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe: her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: He's falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.

Great book, poor narration

I wish there was a way to rate the narrator separate from the book itself. The narrator had very strange inflections in her voice and the "sultry" sound of it made everything painful to listen to. It was great during the intimate scenes between the main characters but way too distracting during the normal and fight scenes. She would sometimes whisper and slur her words I would have to back up just to make sure I heard correctly.

The book, however, was pretty good. So far, in the Demonica Series, it is one of my favorites. I'm glad I pushed through the narration to get through it. Unfortunately I started the Eternal Rider series first so I knew more about the Underworld Universe Ione created than I should have going into the first three books but she still did not disappoint. I haven't go ahead to look at any of the other recordings to see if Renee Raudman is a narrator, but if so I'm going to have to break down and buy the book. Not that I mind physically reading, but it takes me twice as long with time constraints.

If you truly love the Demonica books you could probably get around the narrator (it took most of part one for me to) but if you're unsure or get easily distracted by narration you might want to skip this one.

Why oh why was the narrator changed?!

In an audiobook the narrator either makes or breaks the experience. In this case it broke it. When you were a child did you ever watch the original Cinderella movie? Well, Renee Raudman sounds exactly the same as the narrator of that fairy tale. Making Serena sound like the overly dramatic disneyesque princess was just horrible. An then to make matters worse the evil Baseltov (or something like that) sounds like an evil witch instead of a male fallen angel. The narrator took so much out of the story that it feels like it was written by a different author. The narrator made my favorite paranormal romance series sound like a dramatic old school fairy tale. Pleeease bring Hillary Huber back!!! Please don't kill this series for me. I wish I had the time to sit and read the actual book but I don't so we'll see if this is the end of the series for me since all the next books are narrated by different people.
