To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I've been marked by both.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It's always been theirs.
Contains mature themes.
The story is okay. Not amazing, just pretty good.
This audiobook is narrated by 2 people. A woman for the female lead, and a man for the male lead. Certain chapters are from her perspective (so narrated by Hollie Jackson) and likewise for the man (narrated by Chris Chambers). MOST of the book is from her perspective. And unfortunately, Hollie Jackson is not up to the task. She actually voices the main character okay. But all the other characters she has to voice... it’s just awful. The girls sound like a thoroughly annoying mix of a cheerleader and “Muffy” from the tennis club. That annoying mix of pretentiousness and fake enthusiasm. This tends to carry a bit to the men she reads too. AND, the same ability to voice inflection that she exercised with the main character, she completely lost with all the other characters. Gets tough to listen to after a while.
Good narrators are SO important with audiobooks!
