In my library I've got (and have loved) all of J. Kenner's other audiobooks.. including the ones about the very memorable Damien Stark! So, as soon as this book was released, I downloaded it expecting to be wowed and wooed all over again with a new series from Damien's world.. but how wrong I was.
The narrator was awful.. at times I couldn't tell if it was the male or female talking let alone which character it was and I really didn't like her hero's voice. The heroine was so weak and continually had to pep herself up before doing things. I actually can't believe this was written by Ms. Kenner as the style of writing just doesn't fit her previous work. I'll admit by Chapter 13 I'd lost the will (and the interest) to carry on so I thought I'd skip to the last one to see how it all ended.. but, as I started to listen, I realized that I just didn't care enough to continue.
Worth a credit? No - and I never thought I'd be saying that about a Julie Kenner book. And, as I mourned the time and credit lost, I wondered if it would have been a whole different story if one of our much loved female narrators had taken this book on (or maybe I've just been spoiled by the best). I'll be asking for my credit back - and this is just MY opinion.. you may love it.

The narrator killed this for me. She sounded like a very young teenager and really didn't differentiate that much between the characters. I kept on having to rewind to figure out who as talking. Along about Chapter 2 I couldn't stand listening to the narrator a minute longer and switched to the Kindle edition. A couple of chapters later, I really didn't like either of the main characters and decided life is too short to waste my time on this book. I doubt I will ever willingly listen to this narrator again, and the author is on my "never again" list.
