another comfortable fantasy

it's hard to beat romance and angels....

Loses a star for being occasionally frustrating - I mean, I know Luce is only 17, but she can be pretty dumb when it comes to making the right call when it comes to boys. Also, plot a little too convenient/predictable at times, however, that said, if you're a fan of this genre, then this is another comfortable fantasy/romance.

Narration is good.

You'll fall right into the story

This book lives up to its title in every way. The reader is drawn in from the beginning, and from there, it's a headlong plunge into the world of Lucinda Price. Beautifully written, with a colourful scope of characters, this book is a must for any lovers of the paranormal. The end will leave you literally begging for the sequel!

Excellent, a promising start to the series

I was very pleasantly surprised upon finishing this book - I immediately wanted to go on to the next one to continue the story! I am sure I am outside the intended audience for this book, being a good few years older than a teenage girl, but I was hooked.

The writing is of a high quality, the story moves on quickly without being too obvious as to where things are heading ( I hate it when I can quess the ending a mile away) and the plot is not too unbelievable (crucial in a supernatural romance). The characters are fully realised, I feel I can picture them all in my head, which helps me to follow the story.

The narration is also very well done, pitched very well considering the age of the characters and the range required. I found it very easy to follow and well paced.

My only criticism is that the ending seems to come in a slight rush, which negates the excellent build up of tension that precedes it.

I have already added the next two books in the series (Torment and Passion) to my wishlist, and eargerly await the release of the fourth (Rapture) next year.

Glad that I took time to listen ...

... but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
It was a good story to listen too but (and I don't know if this is because I've been tainted with the Twilight Saga's excellence) I found it a bit toothless at times and almost as though it is a story written to try and sail in the wind of Twilight. HOWEVER, I do intend to invest some more time in listening to the sequels but will be waiting until there is a special offer on.

long time to start

The story is good however it took 3/4 of the book to start getting into it and even then it only touched the surface.
The narrator was good and differed her voice well for the characters but her feminine tone made it hard to relate to the male characters.
I will read the next one to see what happens but don't think I will do this via audio book.
