And when she was in the space between life and death, she met John: tall dark and terrifying, it's his job to usher souls from one realm to the next. There's a fierce attraction between them, but Pierce knows that falling for John means a life of shadows and loneliness in the underworld....

Love the Story, Hate the Narrator

Any additional comments?

I had already read the book, and really looked forward to listening to it on audible. I was very disappointed! The narrator had ZERO emotion in her voice! Save your credit and get the actual book. Your internal voice beats the heck out of this version!

'Abandon' hope, all ye who purchase this book...

I had high hopes for this book because I had heard good things about the author and the synopsis interested me. But I didn't make it 10 minutes into this book before I wanted to stop! The narrator is dull and bland, she had absolutely no emotion at all. And the story is so disjointed. The author does little to introduce the main characters or set up the plot...I literally felt like I was dropped into the middle of a book and given no backstory. I tried to keep listening, but after an hour and a half the novel was still so poorly developed that I had to turn it off.
