decent story but does have a few flaws..

Ok first off one thing i realize looking back after listening to the WHOLE audio book is the narrator does have more variation in her tone of voice the further you get into the book. I didnt like that the story seems to start off in the middle of things and takes AGES to get around to explaining even the tiniest bit of the main characters background and why she is in the middle of running from assassins when the book opens. from there it does turn into a pretty good story apart from the fact that it is VERY choppy. I hope that this author learned how to write things more smoothly in the following books... ( for instance an "intimate" scene in the book where the characters are in bed in the middle of arousing each other and then she throws in a LONG discussion between them that really wouldnt be conducive to that kind of mood... and then after a talk that would have taken quite a while they suddenly remember what they were doing and resume? or out takes in the middle of fights too.. .. the other BIG thing that kept me from giving it a higher rating is the narrator has a problem with mispronunciation. Especially with words like werewolves or wererats she pronounces it weerwolves.

On and on and on with no point....OMG so ANNOYING

I can't believe all the positive reviews this book received. The main character is so incredibly annoying. She just goes off on these rants for no apparent reason and the story is so slow and boring that by the time the action starts I just don't even care anymore.
I don't get it, there must be something wrong with me because I hated this book. Too many boring details and the characters getting "lost in the weeds" somewhere. The only character I liked was Tomas and I have no idea why the author even wrote him in the story. He could have been a great hero/love interest but he was just never developed. What was the point?
I didn't care for the narrator either, but the story was just so bad it really didn't matter.

In my opinion I would avoid this book - don't waste your time, money or credits.
