Storyline was great, for the length of the book it went by fairly quickly. the Narrator was really good, however her impression of how Americans talk is slightly insulting. she pretty much made us sound like slow rednecks high on paint fumes. She does get better in the second book and I still recommend listening to this one.

I have been in love with this series since I found it a few years ago. The Afterlife Saga is a series that can be read and reread over and over. I'm glad I tried out the audible version. Afterlife fans will be glad to hear that there are extra scenes and extra lines throughout this version, adding some details and even some extra steamy scenes. This book brings you into a world of demons and angels where not all demons are bad and not all angels are good, but some of both are here on earth to protect humans and maintain a balance. this series keeps you on your toes while you follow the love of Kiera, a human, and Draven, an angel/demon halfbreed. Another person wrote in her review that this a book for teens, I dont know what she would allow her kids to read, but I certainly wouldnt want my daughter to read this....yet.... ill recommend it when she is older, as there are detailed sex scenes. Like I said, I liked hearing the audible version and will definitely be getting the other books as they come out in hopes that they too will have extra scenes.

more than 20 hours of description of how overwhelmed/tearful/shy ( basically pathetic) the "beautiful but she doesn't know it heroine is !! The "Hero" is the usual strong dark silent type who goes all soppy with lust. It a mills and boon style formula story but dragged out. A nipples being described as "points of desire" sort of thing !!
Formula stuff that is so bad it's sometimes funny. The American accent the reader employs is also some sort of revenge for dick van dykes English accent in Mary poppins I think. It was painful to listen to. And I don't think I have ever thought or said "oh good grief" whilst listening to a book so often !!

I am kinda liking the book and Rebecca plays the main character of Kiera perfectly but she is not good with the other voices. All of the American voices she does sound the same and Draven's voice is all wrong. The book moves too slowly. You are waiting and waiting for something big to happen and it just isn't coming. I want to know more about Dominic Draven and what they are but it is like paint drying. Kiera can be very annoying, she is constantly doing everything wrong. She reminds me a bit of Bella from the Twilight Series, always getting in trouble foolishly.
The book is great for someone maybe 12yo. Struggled to get past first 2 chapters and gave up. The accent play was terrible. Would have been less irritating if just read normally.
