awesome narrator

Love the narrator, he's my favorite! the story tends to cut him off on the last word in a chapter. great story line, can't wait to start the next one.

Great Narration!

Christopher Branam did a fabulous job narrating. His voices and emotions were great and he brought the characters to life. The storyline was interesting and there were some suspenseful scenes, however it was just okay for me. I found there was just too much angst in the story for my liking. Everyone just seemed to be angry all the time. The heroine never seemed to like anyone and treated Gabriel poorly throughout the book. I found myself having to put the book down and listen to something else and then going back to it to finish it. And then when I finally really got into the story it ended with a huge cliffhanger...talk about a letdown. I am not a fan of cliffhangers so if the rest of the books in the series are going to be the same it is not one I will likely continue. I will however look for more books performed by the narrator as he was fabulous. I received a free copy of this book and have voluntarily provided this unbiased review.

Kept me interested till the end!

Very well written book that takes you on a journey where you meet some very interesting characters. I loved how Gabriel evolved in the story along side Sam. The twists and turns were very well placed and an interesting experience of a book. The narration of the book was very well articulated and easy to listen to. Looking forward to the next book.

Incredible

This was certainly a strong start to a series. The characters were definitely worth listening to and I loved the amount of drama and angst, the push and pull and the twists and turns. This is a book that I know I could listen to again as I think I would pick up more of the background as well.

Fantastic narration the characters were easily distinguishable and the pacing was spot on.
