Brilliant story, totally gripping, great main characters and super narration. I couldn't stop listening and I hope there is another one.
I will definitely listen to this again.

Not the best Milton

This felt a bit of a rushed book. Not as good as the other Milton books although still enjoyable and brilliantly narrated as always by David Thorpe.
The first 2/3 were a bit dull, not enough of Milton's skills shown or his ruthless assassin side. Then just as it gets going it finished. It's like the author had to end it to meet his deadline. However it holds full of promise for the next book.

Bit disappointed after the first amazing one

I just couldn't get into this book. The ending was good but it is no where near as good as the first one. There is not as much action, you don't get much of Winter's awesome knife and combat skills and she seems pretty tame compared to the last book. I was so looking forward to this and especially after I read the good reviews but it just doesn't live up to the first one. It was also quite hard to follow. It is still entertaining but don't expect it to be in the same league as the other. Hopefully there will be another book and it will be on a par with the first. I enjoy the relationship between her and Alec, perhaps they can go off fighting more bad guys in the next one!

Really super book, one of my favourite Maeve Kerrigan books, it was nice to have a bit of reference to Rob other than Maeve moping around as I keep hoping they will get back together or she will move on

Hard to write how much I disliked this book. I physically couldn't listen to it, it was utterly nauseating and incredibly boring. I cannot understand how anyone enjoyed this. Maybe it becomes riveting later, I don't know, I returned it as I couldn't bear it.
Perhaps it was the narrator. She speaks with a pathetic drivelling tone and her cocky accent is painful to listen to.
Sorry but no.

Not awful but a bit weird. I don't love it but it's OK if on offer.
Not as good as the latest book by this author

The first 3/4 of this book was brilliant, really different to anything else I have heard, no idea where the storyline is going. I was totally hooked.
Last 1/4 was a bit disappointing, it got a bit fantastical and slightly ridiculous. Rather disappointed as I think I would have given it 5 stars otherwise.
Narrator is brilliant.

I can't wait for the next one. Absolutely love this author, totally gripping, I have listened to all the books back to back! I wish Gina would get back together with Chris though and get some counselling for the Terry thing as that is getting a bit dull

Love this series, this book was as good as the others if not the best yet. Brilliant storyline, absolutely gripping. I agree with the other reviewer who said they wish Gina would let go of all her baggage.
