Publisher's Summary

As a warder, Jackson Tybalt is one of the good guys until he sees the man he loves kissing another. Betrayed and angry, Jackson tempts danger and death, ignoring the pleas of other warders to be careful. It’s a vile mood in which to start a romance, but that doesn’t stop the kyrie Raphael, who more than anything wants Jackson for his very own.

Jackson doesn’t want a hearth, he doesn’t want a lover - he just wants dark and painful, and Raphael will give him what he wants. But sometimes the sins of the flesh are just what a body needs to bandage the wounds of the heart, and Raphael will hide the tenderness he feels for Jackson for as long as the warder wears the guise of the Sinnerman.

Enjoyed the story but not the sound quality

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listed to this book on my commute to and from work. It was a nice distraction.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoy an "angsty" romance and this story fit the bill.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Schwartz?

Someone without an East Coast accent. I found it distracting.

Do you think Sinnerman needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not applicable. Sinnerman is part of a series and I have already read the other books.

Any additional comments?

The sound quality was an issue for me when listening to this book. At times the readers voice seemed to fade a bit as though he turned his head away from the microphone.

Rough listening

I would buy more from this team, but only if they promise to iron out the audio glitches. I found myself distracted from the story by having to adjust the volume and bass/treble settings. Not a good thing while driving. Story is OK. I found myself pulled in to the goings on.

Great series

I have listened to this whole series and also read the books and enjoyed them immensely. The only part of the narration I do not enjoy is the music or electronic sounds at the beginning of the chapters as it is jarring. However, that is no reason to miss this excellent series. Well worth your time and a credit.

Great story, not a good narrator

Jackson is a warder whose hearth has fallen for someone else. He’s heartbroken and acting like he doesn’t care if he lives or dies.

Raphael is the Kyrie we met earlier who drank from Mal but who only has eyes for Jackson.

Though it takes a lot of “teaching”, Raphael shows Jackson he has something to live for – including love.

**

The love between Jackson and Raphael is tough to watch at first. Jackson’s heart is broken and he’s so sad. Rafe doesn’t seem like he’s good for Jackson at all, and it feels hard to root for him.

I loved how the story finally comes around to show us the real path. It was a very cleaver writing and it went over well.

This was a great addition to the series and I recommend it with 4 of 5 stars!

I've already said all I need to about this narrator. He's not good.

Action packed

Love Raphael and Jackson's story! Jackson's self destruction was hard to witness but it made his happily-ever-after all that more sweet.

I did not care for the narrator

The narrator reads very fast, in monotone, no difference between characters most of the time.

The story is just OK. I've read all of the books and can not tell you what any of them were about, but I usually love Mary Calmes. I figured it was me, so I waited awhile and listened again. Nope. Not good.

Hurt/comfort perfection

I won't go into the narration. It's not good end of story.

I have to say that from all the relationships till now Raphael and Jackson's are one of the healthier ones (not healthy by any means and not because Raphael is a kyrie) because it wasn't insta-love. Yes finding your hearth is a big deal and you don't want to let them go but the ILUs after a week of being together is not good. At least here, from Raphael's side we have months of lusting and wanting.

I really loved Raphael and the way he melted when Jackson got it together. Wish we got a bit more of their dynamic and how it is for Jackson when his "hearth" is a kyrie now.

The sound fades were distracting

The story would be progressing and the volume would go down. I'd adjust the sound and a bit later it would go back to normal. Perhaps the reader leaned away from the microphone. I thought Raphel was one of the more interesting characters.
