    AudioBook Review
    Stars  Overall: 4  Narration 4  Story  4 




    Picking up right where the first book left off, I think that the novella was able to present much of the background information that is integral to this story, without dragging down the pace and flow with too much information.  These books will not stand alone: you are well-served by reading them in order as only a nod is given to provide information from the first book. 




    Aria is dealing with her hosting of Malachi, yet Liam’s brother Conor is still a great threat.  In a secondary thread, Dorian and Gwen are still struggling with their on again off again relationship and attraction, it’s quite funny to see Dorian: an enlightened being totally and completely flummoxed by Gwen’s independence, sharp tongue and guarded heart.  




    It is interesting to note that even though things are rather curiously jumbled in the relationships, and the men are really no more able to understand their women’s needs, that the underlying conflicts are all really about communication and honesty with the couples.  




    But, Conor is providing a serious threat to all: wanting to claim Malachi for himself, and not all is well in the universe: Dorian is in trouble, and an ambassador that should have been working for peace is tied to Conor and determined to cause upheaval in Liam’s life. 




    Each story is treated with respect and pacing that fits the action, even as all of the subplots do circle back to revolve around Aria and Liam.  We also see a growth and development for Malachi, from demon with a very jaded approach and outlook toward the humans he encounters, he starts to see that he is also an integral cog in the works: and that there are those who will deal with him as a being worthy of acknowledgement, not just an unwanted tool.   If you are looking for pure sexy talk and erotic moments, the use of some strange phrasing keeps the steam levels down, even as reactions are described in detail, although the emotional components are well detailed and explained.  




    Narration is again provided by Allyson Johnson: she again does a nice job of bringing the characters to light with her use of changes in pitch and tone. Unfortunately, there were several sections where it took a moment for her to get into the voice that I had come to associate with a particular character, as well as obvious moments of ‘cutting in’ phrases that perhaps didn’t make the editing cut. There were several of these fluctuations in the production, and sadly they did pull me from the story for the moment until resolved.  Compared to the first book’s recording there were some misses here that I did not expect. 




    This has been a fun ride through these two stories: they are complex and rich with characters that are distinct and unique, even as they have traits that are all too human and familiar.  I’m curious about the next step in the series. 




    I received an AudioBook copy of the title via AudioBook Jukebox for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Very entertaining. I know this is a scifi/fantasy romamce, but I think it would be 4 stars if there was less time spent on the romace. The scifi/fantasy aspect is more interesting .

    The whole demon thing is imaginative and I am more interested in the story of how everyone evolves, including the demon, and discover who they really are and how their talents should be used, than in the repetitive descriptions of everyone's feelings. Plus, it ends up with inconsistencies in the descriptions of the characters. It is clear that love & sex drives the stories, but we don't need to be hit over the head with it over & over until it becomes cheesie romance. It makes the quality of the stories uneven. I think Dorian & Chiang are more interesting than Liam now, as he is not as developed a character. I would like to know more about how Liam is coping with being a demon master in the face of all the huge changes in his mate, the demon & his brother! What is in the training books? And now, how are they going to rescue Dorian & his mother?

    Love the book I was more interested in the side characters of Do

    Love the book I was more interested in the side characters of Dorian and Gwen. I found them more interesting than the main characters of Liam and Ania. So with that said cannot wait for Siren Song to come out however I like that through two books, she has keep all of the characters involved. I personally get fustrated with authors who will start a series and each book focuses on a different character but the drop the character from the previous books. If I like the book prior with those characters it drives me to get an entire series. Basically what main characters you start with in the first book keep them around in following books with equally air time.
