The voice was a little on the annoying side, but was pretty good for pretending to be a teenager. Alright.
Sci fi junky that used to read a lot.
While I believe Edwina can make the most boring narration interesting, much like a female Morgan Freeman, marked and the other books in this series tell an epic tale of feminism at its best. Not belittling the vampire mansculinity but complimenting it perfectly. Vampires, Magic and a little "hoeishness" goes a long way for this series.
This series is more directed to young adults, but as a 50+ grandmother, I really enjoyed it. I'm on book 12 and will listen through book 15!
It needs to be re-done with a new narrator.
I wasn't disappointed with the story line, and would have gone on to the next in the series, but didn't think I could listen with the same narrator. She drove me up the wall with all of the mispronounced words.
Maybe the gay kid, only because they couldn't mention him without noting that he was gay. So unnecessary.
Cute, addicting, entertaining
Nala, because she's funny lol
Not unless I really wanted to hear the book and she was the only choice. I am not a fan.
I wish I could listen to it read by someone else. I feel bad for being so picky but her pronunciation, accents, and inflection for the situations are just way off. For some reason every time Neferet talks she gives her a sexy voice that's generally not appropriate for the situation. Her accents are just weird.. People just don't talk like this in real life. Also, while I am in love with this whole series, it was hard for me to get past the writing style at first. It's fitting for a book about a 16 year old to be written like a 16 year old thinks. But I generally can't stand 16 year olds so it was difficult for me to get past lol. It was worth the bad narration and being in the mind of a teenager though, the story is very entertaining.
In the top 10 for sure!! Maybe even the top five
Where she defeated The wicked girl (can't spell her name)
I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.
The House of Night series was written by a teenage girl (and her mother) for teenage girls. If I were a teenage girl, I would like it better, however; if I were a parent of a teenage girl, I would probably hate it.
An extra note. Although it is technically a vampire story, the pagan style of magic would appeal more to those who like witches than those who like vampires.
Say something about yourself!
The premise is an interesting one and it is always fun to have a new vampire series to listen to.
I think the only way the performance could have been better would be if they got a different narrator. I found her voice annoying to the point of being grating.
I read this as a paperback a few years ago and I really liked the series, reading up to book 5 or 6. My enthusiasm was starting to wind down by the 5th book, though. I'm now trying to follow up, but I find that it's been too long to remember all the characters, so I've gone back to book one to restart the series. It's as good in audio as it's in paperback.
This was a diffrent kind of vampire story. i like when a author will take the old type dracula story and make it all new and believable!
