Audio Book Review: Impulse By Dannika Dark

Impulse
(Mageri #3)
By Dannika Dark

Narrator: Nicole Poole
Length: 13 hours and 45 minutes
Almost one year ago, a Mage attacked Silver and changed the course of her destiny.
Immortals exist, and now she is one of them.

Within the dark and supernatural city of Cognito, Silver is living under the watchful eye of her Ghuardian and dating her mortal enemy. Neither man can protect her from a dark secret, one buried within the contents of a box. As rival factions struggle to gain control, she finds herself in the middle of a centuries-old feud that threatens to drive a wedge between her and Logan Cross, the man who intends to seduce her.

In an explosive turn of events, one life is saved and another is forever altered. Can Silver trust those around her, or are they hiding a dark secret of their own?

My Review:

The story and world building is so good. It's disappointing that the main character ruins it all. This series seems to be going downhill for me because I dislike Silver and Logan so much. 

When will Silver learn some common sense and start looking out for herself instead of just ignoring orders, that keep her safe, on a whim? I understand that following rules/orders can be a burden and it can often cause the opposite effect, but wouldn't you expect her to value her own life above her pride? I've lost count of the amount of times (during this series up to this point) that Silver has put herself or someone else in danger just because she couldn't stay put for 15 minutes. How does Justus or anyone for that matter still trust her? Everyone gushes over her and it's gotten old. She isn't a special snowflake....scratch that. In this novel, surprise surprise, we discover that she is in deed a special snowflake. 

Logan doesn't have much going for him in my eyes either. He's domineering, controlling, is a walking cliché and has anger management issues that are disguised by his 'chitah' nature. I don't know about you, but that list doesn't describe a guy who's ready for a relationship. I don't care that it's in his 'nature'.

I really enjoy Justus as a character. I hope that he eventually gets a happily ever after. The few enjoyable parts in this book were scenes with him (ex: the car scene (which was hilarious), the ending sad scene, the violent garage scene). I also loved Christen and he also had very entertaining parts in this story. 

Overall, my dislike of the heroine and her love interest is taking away from the story. This series has become like a car crash to me: I simultaneously want to look away and keep watching it happen in all it's gore. It still boggles my mind that the same author that wrote such powerful and intricate heroines in other novels, wrote this impulsive and idiotic character.

The Audio Book:

The narration was great. I had no problem with it whatsoever. I could easily differentiate the voices for each character.

My Rating:
