The story pulls you in. The narrator was outstanding.
The realism of the NY accent and the characters attitude/wit.
Read it! I bought the whole series after this book.
The series was great....
All of it
Love this series...movie maybe? Charlie, don't quit trying

This is my favorite genre, but this story just wasn't worth listening to. Not only did the story drag and seem to follow pre-fab predictable story lines, but I also did not like the graphic depiction of homosexual sex. Those things, combined with the over-the-top reading, made me finally turn the book off. I just don't even care what happens next.
Maybe if I had read this book myself instead of listening to it, I would have enjoyed it more.
At this point, no. The reading of this story was the thing that drove me the most crazy. Have you ever watched The Chronicles of Riddick with Vin Diesel? It's like Scott Brick is consciously copying Vin Diesel's manner of speaking in that movie. It's all drawled out and presented in an "I'm too cool for my vampire teeth" kind of way. Oh wait. Except apparently these vampires don't have vampire teeth. They draw blood the old-fashioned way- with a needle.
Uhm..... Nothing that jumps out at me.
What a great story. The main character is likeable and real. The plot is interesting and compelling. I have just finished the first book and had to buy the second right away. It seems like it has been a while since I had to continue on with a story right away.
Boom! Bang! Mystery!
The detectives girlfriend. Love her living tough style
No, but will listen to more if I can stand the foul language
Eerie, intense, interesting, dark and excellent writing and narration. Sometimes there is a little too much explanation for my taste however eventually the story moves ahead. I must admit, in order to listen to the second book which I will eventually do, I have to be in the mood. Right now, I'm not. I want to be entertained and some of this writing is a little, just a little dark with no hope or light for Joe.
The narrator, Scott Brick, I believe is excellent. He has a good grasp on the character.
If you can, take advantage of the sale and buy the audio book. If not, buy it anyway. It's really a good investment. Kind of reminds me of Jim Butcher's books without the humor.
I am a Chef and have two boys. I also have 2 accounts.
I WAS HOPING THIS WAS GONNA BE A GREAT BOOK/SERIES. MAY BE I WILL TRY TO LISTEN TO IT AGAIN, BUT I COULD NOT FINISH THIS BOOK.
Yes. The story is pretty good. It gives yet another twist to the classic vampire tale and one that could actually be plausable in this day and age
I think it would be right at the end when Joe is in the school basement. to say anymore would give away part of the story.
Sure, I would love to see who would play Joe Pitt
The series itself is pretty good. The last two were a little tough to get through, but I think that had to do with me really wanting there to be a happy ending with Joe and Evie. Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators and he does not disappoint on these books. I would give them a listen, if for nothing else than to learn some slang, hear a white guy try to sound black and have a good chuckle at the sarcasim that is throwm around in the series.
I am not sure. The reviews were good so some people must like the book.
Scott Brick always does a great job but he just didn't have a story to tell.
This story could have been about a dectective who was on drugs and going through withdrawls not a vampire out of blood. I could not wait for it to end.
