AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL BOOK! Please give yourself the pleasure of this read/listen. It is so enlightening and of course the narrator are AMAZING!
I read the series in print when they first came out and I was happy with it back then. Now, not so much. What ultimately killed it for me was the narration. Truly terrible. She gave all the men serious Count Dracula vibes and Isabella a childlike tone, especially in parts where she's laughing. Like a teenager's idea of what sexy sounds like. On the writers side, she started Isabella off with bravery and a bit of a smart mouth then it morphed into more of a snotty teenager with a kids idealistic outlook. Naive to the extreme coupled with the narrator's child-like sound made you think you were reading some 12 year old's diary. Cringe. I didn't have many issues with the men once I forced myself to get over the Dracula sound
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this book. It was recommended by a friend so I gave it a try, but normally I probably wouldn’t have chosen it from the description. It was fantastic though.
I really love when an author comes up with a really creative new paranormal world I haven’t seen before. I love the way Jaqueline Frank changed how we perceive demons. They aren’t evil at all. In fact, they are good, except when they are summoned by a magic using human who makes them do evil things. It was funny to see the demons fear humans. I enjoyed that part a lot.
What I didn’t like is how easy things were. Bella and Jacob were way too understanding and their feelings and experiences were always so easily resolved. There were some conflicts in the plot, but even those were overcome easily and predictably. Still, it was an enjoyable read and I’ll continue with the series.
