Summary

As a warder, Jackson Tybalt is one of the good guys until he sees the man he loves kissing another. Betrayed and angry, Jackson tempts danger and death, ignoring the pleas of other warders to be careful. It’s a vile mood in which to start a romance, but that doesn’t stop the kyrie Raphael, who more than anything wants Jackson for his very own.

Jackson doesn’t want a hearth, he doesn’t want a lover - he just wants dark and painful, and Raphael will give him what he wants. But sometimes the sins of the flesh are just what a body needs to bandage the wounds of the heart, and Raphael will hide the tenderness he feels for Jackson for as long as the warder wears the guise of the Sinnerman.

Enjoyed the story but not the sound quality

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listed to this book on my commute to and from work. It was a nice distraction.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoy an "angsty" romance and this story fit the bill.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Schwartz?

Someone without an East Coast accent. I found it distracting.

Do you think Sinnerman needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not applicable. Sinnerman is part of a series and I have already read the other books.

Any additional comments?

The sound quality was an issue for me when listening to this book. At times the readers voice seemed to fade a bit as though he turned his head away from the microphone.

Rough listening

I would buy more from this team, but only if they promise to iron out the audio glitches. I found myself distracted from the story by having to adjust the volume and bass/treble settings. Not a good thing while driving. Story is OK. I found myself pulled in to the goings on.

Great series

I have listened to this whole series and also read the books and enjoyed them immensely. The only part of the narration I do not enjoy is the music or electronic sounds at the beginning of the chapters as it is jarring. However, that is no reason to miss this excellent series. Well worth your time and a credit.

Great story, not a good narrator

Jackson is a warder whose hearth has fallen for someone else. He’s heartbroken and acting like he doesn’t care if he lives or dies.

Raphael is the Kyrie we met earlier who drank from Mal but who only has eyes for Jackson.

Though it takes a lot of “teaching”, Raphael shows Jackson he has something to live for – including love.

**

The love between Jackson and Raphael is tough to watch at first. Jackson’s heart is broken and he’s so sad. Rafe doesn’t seem like he’s good for Jackson at all, and it feels hard to root for him.

I loved how the story finally comes around to show us the real path. It was a very cleaver writing and it went over well.

This was a great addition to the series and I recommend it with 4 of 5 stars!

I've already said all I need to about this narrator. He's not good.

Action packed

Love Raphael and Jackson's story! Jackson's self destruction was hard to witness but it made his happily-ever-after all that more sweet.

Good story, bad audio

I liked the story, but only heard it because it was so short. The production was terrible. You can hear background noise when the narrator is reading the book. He reads a little fast but has a ok voice. He makes no changes to his voice when reading different caracters.

Horrible production

I love Mary Calmes but the production of this is crap. Volume goes from 'for dogs only' to 'bust an ear drum' in the same sentence throughout the reading.

Another hot!

Another hit for Mary Calmes. This is part of the Warder series. It’s fantasy but not overboard. Still believable.

A great combination of both types of "action"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The friends that appreciate the genre, would be happy to see mostly positive depictions of love, with a well balanced amount of fantacy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Raphael, he shows the power love true love can override the doubt of peers.

What does Andrew Schwartz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

That wonderful bass voice gives the story a certain "je ne sais quoi".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending scene in the rain.

Any additional comments?

This book got me hooked on the entire series and I listened to them all in 24 hours.
