Publisher's Summary

Out of the wickedly inventive imagination of number-one New York Times best-selling author J.R. Ward comes a world where sin and salvation collide in a battle for the future of mankind - where a cynical fallen angel struggles against the seven deadly sins and a demon's lure over seven chosen souls....
Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they're in over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too... As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover's memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when youre trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels's heart at risk, what in Heaven - or in Hell - will it take to save them both?

Narration is TOO FAST!!! Why the rush?

I'm so MAD! Who was the genius who thought that speeding up this narration was a good idea? I've listened to the first hour and had to go back several times because I couldn't follow what's going on! I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this has never happened to me before. So far it seems like the book is one big paragraph without punctuation because the narrator is just rushing through. There's one part at the beginning where Mathias is supposed to be reflecting the bad things he's done in his life and it goes so fast that it almost sounds like the legal disclaimer in medication ads. I'm tired just listening. (Not blaming Eric Dove who did an amazing job with the previous books but the producer or whomever makes those decisions.)

I woke up at 5am on the book release day and the first thing I did was check Audible to see if the audio was available. I checked several times during the day and bought it as soon as I saw it - didn't even bother listening to the sample because I loved the previous 3 books. BIG MISTAKE! If you compare the narration of the first 3 books with this one, you can tell there's definitely something wrong. All the other books are around 500 pgs. in print and around 14 hrs. hours in audio...how can this book have the same number of pages but be almost 2 hrs. shorter?

Somebody fixes this or I'm returning this book. I just bought this audio because I loved the narration...if this SUCKS, then I'm definitely not reading this in print.

(Rating is due to the speed of the narration...if I understood what was happening, maybe I could rate the story more appropriately.)

- D.G. "Voracious reader/listener: I usually have one ebook and one audiobook going at a the same time. I'm a very eclectic reader so I tend to switch genres after every book. I'm open to most genres but my favorites in audio are mystery and fantasy (epic and urban both)."

Changed to slower speed on my iPod

The narration was way too fast. I changed the audiobook setting on my iPod to "slower" and it was perfect. I could not listen to it at the speed that was downloaded. Can audible ask the source to correct the speed?
