Hear No

It’s only the end of the world at stake …

Nathan’s job for the past three thousand years has been to clean up supernatural messes. Jaded, ruthlessly effective and selfless, he’s seen it all and can handle anything – demons, homicidal angels, even bad bosses.

His latest challenge: A creature named Shadowman is seeking out the three keys it believes will open portals between earth and hell. Nathan must eliminate the human host guiding Shadowman to the keys. Except Nathan isn’t expecting the woman anchoring Shadowman to the human world to be beautiful, witty, innocent and completely unaware of the creature manipulating her. Worse, she makes him feel alive for the first time in his long existence, and he haphazardly discovers she’s meant to become the love of his life.

Life becomes more complicated when Nathan helps rescue one of the key holders, a deaf girl charged with protecting the secret of who Shadowman really is: the first of four demons headed to the human world, intent on bringing about the Apocalypse. They will succeed, unless Nathan kills the woman he loves, and sends the demon back to Hell.

wee a new Ford series
By (4.0 out of 5 stars) December 28, 2013
One of the things I like best about Ford is her imagination and the amount of books she writes. You sometimes never know what you are going to get--except pretty much everything I've read of hers has been great so go ahead and try something.The concept of the stones, gates, four horsemen... really great and I look forward to the next one.One of the other things I like most about her books as a whole are her characters. They aren't always one thing or another. All of them generally do something heinous at one point or another. Which is especially true of the male--poor guys. But even those who look like they'll never be redeemed.... Good, great, grand.

First of 3. Though I love Lizzy Ford and used to some cliffhangers, I think that all 3 could have been condensed into one and cut out some meandering. Guess I will have to get the rest and hope for the best.

It's as good as her other books

A must read. It's as good as her other books. Too long of a wait for book 2 though!

Review of Hear No Evil
By (5.0 out of 5 stars) June 18, 2015
First let me be clear...I am a major Lizzy Ford fan! Second even being a massive fan I have put off reading this one...I can't really give an explanation for that. I mean I love her other series, but this one I just wasn't sure about. Gosh I'm kicking myself now!Hear No Evil is an amazingly written story. Even though the ending makes it clear it's not a stand alone novel, the book just draws you in and doesn't let go.Let's start with the world Ford has created.I have to say it's quite impressive all the different worlds she has built and how she makes each one distinct. In Hear No Evil she's brought quite an interesting spin to the world of good and evil. Her angels and demons aren't monochromatic. There aren't definite lines to show who's on which side. Also the way the angels are reincarnated and experience life on earth. Throughout the story Ford gives just enough of a look into her world to tantalize the reader. I personally can't wait to continue reading the rest of the series to learn more about it.As for her characters...Ford has a way of creating characters that are easy to fall in love with. Not just her leading ladies and men, but the supporting players as well. Even some of the bad guys have a way of causing you to want to root for them. I have to say one of my favorite characters was Eddy, who is definitely not a good guy. lol. But he is so sweet in his own way! I can't wait to see where his story goes.Also Ford's main character in Hear No Evil is deaf. Ford is able to work her disability into the story without making the story about her disability, but it isn't. Yes, Amira's disability is an important part of the story. If she could hear she would be able to figure out what the stones are saying to her and she wouldn't need to find the rest of the girls. But throughout the story it's easy to forget that she's deaf. Ford is able to make it her weakness, while at the same time making it a strength.I highly recommend anything written by Lizzy Ford. She creates beautiful worlds and addicting characters. But I seriously suggest picking up Hear No Evil. It's main character proves that you don't need physical perfection to be a heroine and the things that people with disabilities are able to do.The world is one of her best creations. The story...yes it ends on a cliffie, but it's one that makes you want to keep reading. I'm giving this one 5 outta 5 stars an I can't wait to see where this series goes.I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I do like that there is a deaf character

As a big fan of Ford, I found myself slowing down while reading this book. The premise is interesting, as well as the unique array of characters. The jump from one POV to another was somewhat jarring. I kind of wish Ford had kept to one or even two POVs. I do like that there is a deaf character, and I love the angel/demon component.

Great book

This is the first time I've read a Lizzy Ford novel, and I really enjoyed it--read it in one sitting!The characters are great; fleshed out, believable, the different voices are unique and well written.I ADORE the concept and the plot is well paced. I loved the main characters, Kaylee and Nathan, but I reeeeally am interested in the storyline with Amira and Troy. I think Amira was probably my favorite character out of the lot because she's extremely innocent and naive, but brave and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goal.I was very disappointed when I went to purchase the next in the series and it's not out yet! 🙁 Hurry up, lady!Reasons for the four star rating as opposed to the five star: a few typos bothered me, they pull me out of the story line because I'm a writer and I've become a little OCD about those little buggers, even though I know how difficult it is to spot them in your own work. In addition, (spoiler here stop reading now if you want!) I was really irritated when Nathan was confronted with his ex-wife who seems like a total psycho-hose-beast and he started making out with her and getting all frisky, even though he had JUST LEFT Kaylee's bed and she's supposed to be his OTL. Yes, he pulled away eventually, but...I dunno, I think I just wish he would have pulled away a little sooner or not been interested it all! Plus, before he killed Kaylee, he couldn't get ANYTHING out to make her feel better? C'mon man, stop being a sissy. It made me not like his character very much--even though, I get he's repressing his emotions and everything--his behavior bothered me.I hope he redeems himself in book two!

Just ok

I don't think this is her best work. I found it kind of all over the place. Won't buy the next in the series.

Typical Lizzy Ford book
By (4.0 out of 5 stars) July 6, 2014
Reading a Lizzy Ford book is always a pleasant experience and the greatest thing about it is that right from the start you know what you are going to read: soulmates who have trouble accepting their predestined supernatural bond, that go through extreme lengths to try and deny their feelings, face dangerous situations and battle with evil forces only to end up together at the end of the book or series. It’s a cliche and it shouldn’t work, right? Wrong…Life is so harsh sometimes and things don’t always turn out the way you want them to. So when I feel like it doesn’t make any sense anymore, a Lizzy Ford book can always make me want to go back and fight. For my dreams, for my happiness… the hope sweet love is just around the corner. Because once in a while, you need to escape reality and remember good things only come if you fight and fight and fight. Just like Lizzy’s couples do.In Hear No we get to read about humans, guardians, angels and demons and a fight against the evil of Shadowman, a fallen Guardian whose host is Kaylee, a kind woman who finds herself in the middle of chaos, confused about everything that is happening to her. And of course nobody will explain anything to her. Why would they, when the only chance to defeat Shadowman is if they kill her first? Or is it? Nathan is supposed to end her life to save the rest of humanity, but it’s kind of hard to do that when he feels so attracted to her in an unexplainable way.My favourite part about this book was the sweet romance that just begins to bloom between Amira and Troy, the first one a reincarnated first generation Angel, and the latter Nathan’s mentor. I would’ve given this book a 5 vanilla flower rating if not for the underexplained supernatural world. I have to say though that I just love the covers and titles of the books in the series and I can’t wait for the next installment to come out.
