His powers - inhuman; His passion - beyond immortal. All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own. Neither can resist the instant hunger that calms their torments...and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction - and a soul-shattering test of love.
love the book; HATE THE AUDIOBOOK!
The book was so good I devoured it in a day. When I saw the audiobook I bought it and was sooo dissapointed. The narrarator makes the hero sound like a bad combination between a drag queen and arnold schwarzenegger with no emotions and very little pitch change. While the book gets a definite 5+ stars, the audiobook was very poorly read.
Don't Waste Your Money
I bought this book on a whim. Not what I usually choose, but the synopsis sounded intriguing so I went for it. The plot is weak at best, there's precious little character development or description, and a great many over-used phrases. The erotic bits are cliche, with the same thing happening over and again. The author lacks imagination (or perhaps her own experience is so limited??) and an apparently weak grasp of the English language. I kept waiting for something big to happen but it never did. As for the narrator, his voice is pleasant enough but I have to agree with another reviewer who likened his main character voice to that of a "drag queen Schwarzenegger". It also reminded me of the dialogue in a really bad porn flick. With so many other excellent books out there, I have to suggest you save your money and go for something with a little more substance and creativity.
Waste of money
I can't believe what a waste of money this book was. I wish I could get a refund, I can't even listen to it. The story is is weak at best and the narrator is worse. What a waste of time. Average rating is 4 1/2 stars??? WHAT. Want a good audiobook purchase the Black Dagger Brotherhood series....that is worth the money!!
