Good story, great author, great voice actress

I missed really missed that line Gin says about someone "needed to get dead in a hurry". I don't recall that in this book. But it always makes me laugh in the other ones. The voice actress has the perfect accent for the characters in the book. I know many people who have that accent, so it is very believable. And reminds me of people I know. After seeing how choppy and strange a great audio book series becomes when the author suddenly decides to switches narrators, I'd definitely quit reading this if Lauren Fortgang wasn't reading it anymore. To date I've quit buying two series because I couldn't stand the switch.

Gin and Owen ahhhh

Gin and Owen.....another good listen.
Im glad to see Gin opening up with her feeling for her friends and letting them know it. I was a little worried that maybe I had enough of Gin as she really was staying closed up not letting her friends in, but this story change that.. A very good listen

very disappointing

What disappointed you about Heart of Venom?

the story and fight scenes were so similar to previous books, it felt like deja vu

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

the narrator was ok but ill timed pauses get a little annoying

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

The first books in this series were ok, at times enjoyable, but this one had little new to offer
