Summary

Caderyn is the sexiest - and perhaps craziest - man Bridget has ever laid eyes on. He may have rescued her from death, but who's going to rescue her from him? With all the right moves, the man is a walking seduction that's too hard to resist. Sparks fly. Desires heat. But there's one small problem. He claims they're trapped in the lost city of Atlantes, living on a cursed island deep within the ocean.

a good listen, main female character is too much

Where does The Mighty Hunter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Hard to answer as i have listen to so many. This has a good story line. It is well performed not just read. The characters are well developed and the main female totally irritated me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mighty Hunter?

I think when the ship went down and Hunter saved her by breathing for her and taking her to his world.

Have you listened to any of Rebecca Cook’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not that i am aware of but she did very well, even with the male characters.

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

Yes, i wanted to strangle the main female. The lack of acceptance of where she was and what her life would be now, becomes old. She appears to lack common sense too.

Any additional comments?

Ms Pillow has a tenancy to create female characters that are very defiant and it goes on and on in this book. This is not the first book she has written that I wished to strangle the main female. It reminds me of spoiled brats with no common sense. Yes, you have a scientist, she is unbelieving or unaccepting of what she is told, runs off too see for herself. Stubborn, yes. A little of this goes a long way. Yes i will continue reading Ms. Pillow but i wish she would create a different personality for her main female character.

I really enjoyed listening to this storyline. The world the author created is beautiful and you are in awe and intrigued from the very beginning to the end

Main characters

What can I say. The woman was annoying. She is supposed to be a scientist but behaved like an idiot. A bit more character development would be nice. More story instead of just filling the book with sex scenes.

Annoying heroine

For a woman who was supposed to be so smart, Bridget did stupid things. At times she was extremely annoying. Fortunately for her, Caderyn put up with her. Good world building. Rebecca Cook did a great job with the narration.

A little cheesy but a good read

I enjoyed this book although at times I wanted to strangle the two main characters. I would recommend this book.

Wanted to love but couldn't

I loved Michelle Pillow Dragon Lords and Lords of the Var Series but I couldn't really get into this one. I wanted to, but it seem like all of her books have the same theme and I was just tired of the same plot. If I listed to this one first maybe I could of finished the book.

Sexy mermen and whiney women - possible spoilers

I was a little nervous about this book because some other reviews say the heroine is a bit whiney, but I gave it a shot anyway. I have to say that I agree, the heroine can be whiney, doesn't accept her situation, and even when she *says* she does, really she doesn't. All that said, I continued on with the story because despite the heroine being a little impulsive and making some really stupid decisions, the rest of the story was alright. Michelle Pillow excels at her love scenes and heroes being super sexy men. There is no question that this book is intended for mature audiences only, because, wow, just wow. The hero unfortunately conforms to some of the typical devices employed for "fish out of water" stories (yes, pun intended heh). He doesn't tell the heroine what is going to happen to her, doesn't communicate with her, and doesn't really explain much of the dynamics of where they are. I have seen this in alien races, paranormal shifter books and now, mermen books. I gave this book a 3 star overall review, but I'd really like it to be a 3.5. The narrator Rebecca Cook was very good, even though she sounds a bit like Allison Janney at times.

yes to the mighty hunter

It was great to be back listening to Ms. Cook. Love the voices she gave the characters and emotional delivery of the story. My fave voice in this story is the one she gave to Caderyn, also the one she gave the Queen.
The story is a different take on the Mer myth and loved delving into Ms. Pillow's world of the Abyss. Great world building, engaging characters and suspense mixed with romance. It was a great journey following Bridget's introduction to a world she belongs to but didn't know it even existed. Luckily she has Caderyn even though he sometimes blunders and so does she, the times when she doesn't listen and puts herself in danger, but it all works out in the end. There are quite a few surprises and twists along the way. Great supporting characters, Caderyn's sister, Merka made me laugh with her youthful exuberance.
The author has a way with words that will hook you and will definitely bring me back to this world again and again. I can't wait to listen to the next one.

Something lurks under the Sea.

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

Yes I would . Why? Majority of my friends love paranormal and hot romance.

What other book might you compare The Mighty Hunter to and why?

I have only read one other series with merman. And it was nothing like this one.

Have you listened to any of Rebecca Cook’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. Rebecca does a fantastic job of narrating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I tried but it's a little long. But it is so good

Any additional comments?

I was gifted this audible for my honest review.
