The Earth female has carved a place in his heart without even trying and now he'll do anything to make sure nothing ever hurts her again. Rescued from a Marenian slave auction, Joni Miller is relieved to have her life back, but there's one man making it difficult to remember why she shouldn't want to think about happy ever after any more.

Wow ...

If you could sum up Kyele's Passion in three words, what would they be?

Intense, entertaining and sinful

What other book might you compare Kyele's Passion to, and why?

It's not a fair question authors create original characters and it would be an insult to compare them. But for the sake of being honest S.E Smith and M.K. Eidem write characters with just as much depth and background to them.

Which character – as performed by Ryder Watkins and Char Adams – was your favourite?

Have to admit to liking Lissi, looking forward to hearing more from her in Rydak's Fall.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Have to admit to laughing quite a bit, especially with the antics of the women.

Any additional comments?

Just love the books that Michelle Howard writes including her warlord series. Looking forward to reading and hearing more from her.

fantastic series

enjoyed this audio book very much, apart from the narators voice of Torkel the head of the Jutact Warriors, they used a very feminine voice for him, an I honestly cringed every time he spoke, all the other male characters had deep and sexy voices, so why on earth did they decided to use this high gently feline voice for Torkel, after all he was the head of all his warriors, anyway apart from that, this book was first class, and I recommened this book and all the series.

Poor Choice of Female voice narrator

I like the written book, in fact I have bought the whole series but if I could only figure out how to get a refund on this audible version I would request one.

The female vocals were dreadful. No emotion matching to text or content. And seriously off putting.

Liked it, but...

I didn't finish this one as quickly as the other books in this series. Not because of the story, but because of the narrators and lack of sound effects. There was also a lot of popping in this audio, as though the narrator was blowing against the mic. The narrators weren't bad, but didn't seem to go together as well as the ones in the book before. The sound effects weren't as good either, and there wasn't as much as there was in the other books. For this reason, I found the audio version of this book lacking, but the story itself was enjoyable. I hope the narrators from the last book are in the next one and it has more sound effects. If not, I can't see myself getting the next book.

Kyele is one scary hot guy!

I've wanted to hear Kyele story from the moment I met him in the first book. I love those dark brooding types. Kyele and Joanie are to hearts that have suffer at the hands of monsters. Joanie only wants to live her life nightmare free and in the arms of Kyele. However, Kyele feels unworthy and pushes her away. But when Joanie is attacked one night he lets his control go and takes what he's been missing.

Overall, I think the plot is getting better. I still find it a little slow. Also, this book doesn't show you who may be next in the series. I hope this doesn't mean the series is over though. I think there is so much more that needs to be covered.

Ok the story is great as usual

I couldn't give this book 5 stars because honestly Torkel voice was horrible for me and honestly the female voices were a little wrong. it is hard when you listen to the other books and get use to the voice but overall the book was really good. Loved the storyline and so ready for the next book.

Narrator should stick to TV "How it's Made"

Good story line. Would like to see what their kids futures hold. Boring narrative. Like listening to a how to book

what's up with the narrator's

I loved that the was a male and female narrator, but their performance left a lot to be desired. They simply didn't match the descriptions of the people in the story. or was almost like they were making fun of the characters instead. I mean why does Faith sound so emo?

Bring back Michael Pauley!!!

I waited so long for the audible version of this book, which I enjoyed. But the narrators were very dry- they did not move me at all. Michael was the only narrator thus far who did these warriors justice. The guy's impression of Torkel in this version was awful!!! . I am looking forward to Rydak's story with bated breath and i hope whichever narrator they use ( fingers crossed it's Michael) will do it justice. LOVING this series!!!!!!

Could have been better

This narrator and the female voice didn't do justice to the characters. The woman who did the voices for the women sounded like there was anything else she would rather be doing than reading their parts. A disappointing listen.

Narration is cringeworthy. Period.

The story is great, but for some reason the narration took a drastic change from the other three books. While some changes were expected as the narrators differed between all four books, at least the tone and personality of the characters was consistent in the first three books in the series. In this book, Faith Reed sounds bored out of her mind, like she doesn’t love Torkel and most disappointingly like she’s got no brains. This isn’t the same woman we saw in the first three books. Also, Lissie (Rydek’s chosen) sounds more like an alien than necessary and not like her previous representation in earlier books. Sylvie and Joni were passable but still lacking the luster heard in Arak’s Love. And worst of all, Torkel is portrayed with the voice and tone of some high brow professor with breathy undertones!! Um what?? Where’s the Merenian warrior who overcame so many obstacles by strength and determination and willpower?? Who’s this academic who doesn’t sound like he even knows what a laser is let alone can run an elite team of warriors!? Utterly disappointed in this because the storyline was good and demanded more realistic tone and personality of the characters we’ve heard and seen developed in three previous books.

I only pushed through because of the storyline. If you want to know what happens next and don’t mind periodic cringeworthy scenes then trudge on and give this a listen. I’m glad I did but really hate that these narrators destroyed the characters I came to know and love.

Love this series

Love this story ,Joni and Kyele . The performance of the narrators was ok. I think they just need more practice and they’ll be good. I really hope someday that the General kind find him some happiness with another lady.

Great book not so great narration if heard in orde

love the series but annoying if heard consecutively bc the narrators change the voice and personality of the characters from one book to the other.
