Hooked

So hooked on this story I am immediately purchasing the next. The narrator reads at a relaxed pace that really draws you in too. For lovers of fantasy fiction, I would definately recommend it

Big Disappointment

I've never read a YA Fiction book where the main character and hero of the story cried so much, shook so much, was hysterical so much and took so many showers to calm down.

Also, Asher the main male character acts like a caveman jerk in much of the book.

The plot seems to advance at a snail's pace of at all.

Dragging

What would have made Restraint better?

more action .

Would you be willing to try another one of Jorjeana Marie’s performances?

No she must have had a cold during the whole series.
No difference between characters.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yeah, it did have some action in parts.

redundant

decent book reminds me of the Premonition Series by Amy Bartol- which is way better. The book could be a little better. There is a lot of repeated words and phases that are really annoying and odd in some instances.

Still never prepared for the end of this book😔

You do anything necessary to protect the ones you love. This books shows even with restraint destiny will kick in and rules will be broken. Even with reading the book first I still was not prepared for the ending. Jorjeana does an amazing job with all of the voices!

I needed there to be more than this

So I have to say I am a bit disappointed with this book. I was waiting on Eve to be strong and stop leaning on Asher everytime she was scared or in trouble. She whined for most of the book and there was no growth in her character. There are question she should be asking but she so "in Love" she just doesn't. I hate weak female leads and she is weak, she has no depth. If I was made as a weapon for heaven don't just expect me to say ok. Why should I just go along with this plan? How are your rules helping me? Yeah this book was frustrating.

Deception and distance

This is my favorite paranormal series thus far. I've never listened to Randi Cooley Wilson but this series just won't let me go.

Yes the main heroine, Eve is 18 years old and thinks like an 18 year old but the story line more than makes up for her hair brain decisions. Eve falls in love with Asher, and yes he's an alpha egocentric lovable kinda guy,

The only thing I had a hard time with in the series is when Eve over hears things and Asher and his family have "expert hearing" but yet they never seem to hear Eve when she's eavesdropping. I sympathize with her eavesdropping behavior because so many of her life decisions are being made about her...to her,...yet she's not included in any of the decision making.

I also have a huge soft space in my heart for lovable gargoyles. As for the narration, Jorjeana Marie does a wonderful job at narrating each character with attitude and empathy. Sometimes I found that her Irish accent for one character bled over into another characters voice, but she's very clear and easy to understand.

Either way I can't seem to put this series down! Fair warning - cliff hanger.

Better than the first

This book was better than the first. The narrator's voice and acting can get a bit annoying. She sounds like she's stuffes up and has a cold and she talks at normal speed at times and then there are long gaps in between words.

Good book, terrible audio

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Please please please get someone else to narrate this series. I would actually re-listen to the whole thing if someone else was reading it.

What didn’t you like about Jorjeana Marie’s performance?

The narrator is incredibly inconsistent with the characters. Like she forgets which voice to use with each? Also, not sure if it was just recorded this way but some of the lines are repeated twice.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes.
