Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline | 2/18/2014

    " I've always loved this book. A pretty good sci fi romance and better than some of the more recent sci fi romances of Ms. Krentz, which seem to be blurring together recently. This was a much clearer and crisper story. The history of the colonists was clearly told as was their development over the last couple of hundred years. Gryph is very alpha which is annoying at times and I just want Sariana to bop him upside the head. Sariana is a strong resorceful heroine and stands up to him. I just want her to win more often against his hardheadedness. I definitly enjoy books where the hero and heroine share a mental bond of some sort and that was happily fulfilled here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindy | 2/18/2014

    " This was a pretty typical Jayne Ann Krentz book. It seemed very similar to Seduction by Ms. Krentz writing as Amanda Quick. I also really didn't understand when or why the heroine decided she was in love with the hero. Didn't make sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 2/9/2014

    " Cute sci fi romance, but I do lose patience with Sariana sometimes. For most of the book she's so determined to be controlled and businesslike, and too proud to accept help from her destined man. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Me Lin | 1/10/2014

    " I actually hated the heroine most of the book...it was kind of ruined because she was so annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/6/2014

    " Loved this book. Got it when it first came out somehow. That was way before I knew it was written by Jayne Ann Krentz. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mlbane | 1/2/2014

    " If we could only take 10 books to a desert island for the rest of my life, this would be one of the books I would take. I read this when it first came out and more than 20 years later I still read it when I'm in the mood for a good stoty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/20/2013

    " Back in print as of Dec 2010...great! Wish she would do more in this line... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mlbane | 11/3/2013

    " The narrator did a very good job with this. It's one of my favorite books and the audio version did not disappoint. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fullfaun | 10/21/2013

    " I liked this book. it flowed very nice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 10/14/2013

    " Maybe a 2.5 star read. I think the best parts were the interactions between the two leads. I kind of skimmed the "action" sequences. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Goodnight | 10/13/2013

    " I've always liked this story set on another planet. JAK presents a plausible other world with interesting social conventions and adds a paranormal layer to the relationship between the reluctant heroine and the Shield who must have her for his ShieldMate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 teatotaller | 10/1/2013

    " Another old favorite from my bookshelves. I remember liking it a lot more the first time around. It must have been quite a while since I read it last since I couldn't remember the plot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 7/23/2013

    " I bought this book when the author was Amanda Glass, back in the 70s. I didn't even know that Amanda Glass was Jayne Krentz until long after I'd become a fan of Jayne and Amanda Quick. It's always been one of my favorites; I've read it numerous times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/5/2013

    " I usually love anything written by this author, but this was not one of my favorites. It is similar to the Harmony series, but lacks the quality that makes her other books so wonderful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 8/12/2012

    " Unexpectedly really good! 3.8 Lucky doesn't hold a candle to Gibson and the other dust bunnies, but it was a good start...in 1989. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jage | 7/21/2012

    " Amazing concept, horrible characters. I disliked them both though the heroine, ugh. UGH. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Schwartz | 7/7/2012

    " I enjoyed this immensely. The planetary set up intrigued me. The hero and heroine were both stubborn and blinkered and they clashed enjoyably. Adventure and rescues, heroics. I like the way Krentz includes pets in many of her novels. This was no exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Audiobooks Only | 5/11/2012

    " Narrated by Natalie Ross Narration 5*s "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Academicsupport | 4/3/2012

    " This novel, a futuristic romance/adventure, appeals, linking vivid characterization with exciting plot development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Kutay | 4/18/2011

    " I enjoyed this book- the characters were engaging even though it was a bit slow for the first couple of chapters as the author was establishing background and context. I would continue to read this series "

    " Audiobook:
    Narrated by Natalie Ross

    This is a book I remember enjoying when I read it years ago. Although Natalie Ross does a superb job in narrating it I found I've grown past the overbearing hero that was a staple in JAK's early books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 MRS | 9/14/2010

    " I actually hated the heroine most of the book...it was kind of ruined because she was so annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 3/8/2010

    " If you're into futuristics (and a fan of Amanda Quick—this is one of her pen names), then you'll love this one. The hero is sexy and there's a mystical subplot that really touched me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 3/27/2009

    " Romance Fluff, but I enjoyed it :)

    One of my favorite Jayne Ann Krentz novels. "
