Please change Jennifer Gll, she is a really awful narrator, when reading she seems to be shouting and does not change the tone of her voice at all. Will think twice about buying any more of her books
"Another good Space opera with a few flaws.."
I like MK Eidem's book. I'm with most here when I say the Tornian's are still my favorite. I think the only thing I've noticed of MK, is that she repeats things she's done in other books. Like the Tornian books those girls love decorating and setting up their houses. In the challenge books all the men are older men, younger woman. I don't mind it but not back to back.
I like William still from the first book. I also like Prince Baric(sp?) for some reason. Some of the things used to cause conflict between the characters came off a bit as contrived.
I like the narrators. I think the woman who does the girl parts needs to learn how to vary her voice more. They all sound the same. The guy, is a bit wooden but he is a big more varied than his partner. Still these are minor gripes. Their reading together with the added sound effects, really add a lot to the story that take these to a new level of enjoyment for me. When they are in space, the subtle noises in the back ground make you feel like they are in space. I really love that.
All in all, you really can't go wrong with one of MK's books. Especially if you enjoy other worlds, alien men, space etc. MK, has become an automatic buy for me.
"Victoria & Lucas' Have Their Story"
Hooray! Book 2 in audio & done by the same talented narration team that created M.K.'s other audiobooks. Victoria is all grown up - certainly mature beyond her years - and is ready to claim & be claimed by her lifemate, Lucas. They overcome personal obstacles to their happiness, and complete their own mission from the ancestors. It's good to have Cassandra & William still involved, and they all play a part in dealing with an added threat from within the House of Knowledge. Well worth the credit. Recommend Unreservedly.
"Actually as good if not better"
Much better lots of drama good plot. This makes me want to read or should I say listen to the next. Hopefully the author will continue these stories. I now have them all ans will j e more
"Extrememly awkward long pause."
The story itself is extremely engaging and will make you want to listen to it all. There were certain parts of the performance that were awkward, such as the sex scenes.
For me it was the narrators moans, they were embarrassing to be honest. I kind of want to read the story to compare to see if the story is less awkward without a staged moan from a narrator.
One thing that drove me nuts about this book was the extremely long pauses between chapters. I thought my iPod had paused or something went wrong. I kept having to check it, click on and off to see what the hell was happening. That would be my major complaint with the book.
Another thing that's extremely hard to get use to is the full audio. It's very distracting in a lot of ways. I'm a huge fan of full cast audio-books, but this one just wasn't one I'd pick to be one.
Despite all that, its worth listening to. It has a great story line but I wish I had been warned when I started listening about the awkwardness.
"In love with a new author!!!"
M.K. Eidem has just been added to my list of favorite authors. I loved the differences in the cultures that were but the sameness. The only way I know to explain it, just saying I learned a new culture along with Cassandra, Victoria and Brett. So looking forward to the next and hopefully not the last look at Carina(sp).
This is how all audio books should be with sound affects and both a female and male narrator . They both were amazing making the characters stand out and bringing the story to life!!! I can't wait for the next book.
"Best narrating team ever and great story!"
I just love M.k. Eidem's ' books on audiobook because the narration style is so entertaining and I love the stories and even the music accompanying them!
Love Lucas! I actually love all the characters in this series. It's amazing to see how Victoria has grown from the traumatized child victim from Earth to a young woman too.
All of them!!
Sweeping Sci-fi drama with romance, high drama and intrigue
More books by M.k Eidem please!
"A Good Second Book"
Victoria has grown up and is ready to claim Lucas, but is he ready? He has made a big mistake while waiting that almost ends their pairing before it even begins. Then He gets hurt and it is up to Victoria to treat him and get him back into a blade. but will the treatment cause him to hate her instead of love her? Then Victoria realizes that her parents and little brother are still alive on Earth and she has to get to them before it is to late.
M K Eidem is becoming one of my favorite authors. I love the sound effects and multiple narrators just add to each book. There are the usual stories within stories and it is a surprise to see how each fits in with the overall story. Now I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
"digital copy issue"
half way through the digital copy the story started to skip. I made it pointless to have digital copy to listen to when it skipped the whole time.
"I keep trying but authors writing is juvenile"
The storyline has so much potential but the author really writes for some strange reason about juvenile women with and the elder like personality or knowledge.
I truly think the author needs to change the agent background of her character the men are always old but the women the women are typically in their 20s or younger. The thing is that that she writes the women as though they've lived for 100 years. Maybe it's petty of me so silly.
The narration this book also made the characters sound even younger and immature. The females boys with much too high pitch made her sound like a seven-year-old instead of 18-year-old.
The Male narrator made the magnet me male character sound like a bratty teenager as well and I think he was in his 30s. The male main characterwas so busy telling everyone how young he is Destin made was that he himself sounded like a two-year-old throwing a temper tantrum.
Books with weak women irritate me but it looks with a weak man make me want to gag. I'm thinking this book would've been a little better had I read it and listen to it the narration in this book is just way too adolescent.
This authors writing style reminds me of one of those cheerleader moms who is like 50 but want to pretend like she's 20 and her daughter's best friend. To hit or miss for me.
