As a rule I like the paranormal books for their action packed stories and strong characters. As a bloke I am not really into chick lit and romance books which this most definitely is.
I listened to this because I accidentally stumbled on the Phoenix pack series of books by the same author and thoroughly enjoyed them.
This book is sort of a cross between Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright and the Imp Series by Debra Dunbar -though I didn't enjoy it quite as much as either.
Thats not to say its a bad book and I will almost certainly listen to Blaze in a month or so.
Has all the hallmarks of a Suzanne Wright book - Feisty female lead character, Dark brooding possessive male, plenty of sex and of course life threatening danger for our heroine. Oh and did I mention some disfunctional relatives. The snappy humour we expect from our heroines is all there
Bit too much of the sex and not enough plot in this one for me though and the male Knox Thorne (even the name is a giveaway) is really a bit too much of a stereotype for me. Dark brooding dominant dangerous etc
Harper is a better character much more interesting and I really liked her and actually cared what happened to her.
Cat Douchette does a great job as narrator and really brings the book to life - very similar to Jill Redfields performances in the Phoenix pack books (and much better than Angela Rysk in the Imp series)
I cant give the story 5 stars though - it really is far too predictable and the sex gets a bit boring after a while, there is a bit too much of it. The underlying plot is quite good though and definitely gets a bit hard to put down in places. Almost all the paranormals in this book are Demons though there are some nice twists on the different types Imps feature prominently but our 2 leads are a bit more interesting and have useful powers
If you like other Suzanne Wright books its definitely worth a credit but I don't think its as good as Feral Sins as a starter of a series

I love Suzanne Wrights work - the perfect combination of steamy and suspenseful - and this series is just as promising as her others. The narrator on the other hand - just awful. Her voice for every character is either high-pitched and whiney or they sound like they've taken a few too many bong hits. I only listen to them when driving the long commute to work but then have to switch to reading as I find myself genuinely irritated by the end of it!
I enjoyed this book but not as much as her books of the Mercury and Phoenix Packs. It's a good listen but the narration is a bit off, much prefer Jill Redfield narrating this type of book.

It's like the author forgot there was a story line to the book. Dropping, walks around a bit then picks it up again. Adding random sex scenes didn't help.
The reader's voice is whiney in alot of places. And gets worse as the book progresses.
