This book was fun. It took me a couple of tries to get going with the book (my fault not the book's) but once I got to the point of Kat and Bones meeting - it was really good. I laughed out loud so often that I was constantly getting funny looks or the comment "What's so funny?" (listening on my MP3 Player).
Good - Could Improve - This is the only problem I had with this book. Ms. Gilbert's voice for all of her characters, but one, was really pretty good and fit what you expected to hear.......but with Bones. Her English accent was hard on my ears. I struggled with Bones' voice because it was so high pitched. She had other guys with the right pitch but Bones came out sounding too high pitched for my tastes. I finally got to tolerating it by the second half of the book but would have preferred something different there. I would listen to her other books because like I said - all the other characters were great. Just wish she had chosen to do something a little deeper for Bones.
I brought this book on the review. I wish I'd heard the REALY bad english accent first. I could of saved a credit. the story might be OK but i couldn't listen past the second chapter.
I really enjoyed the story and the characters, but I found the narrator's accent for Bones distractingly weird. At one point in the book it is explained that his accent comes from both an Australian and British mix, but I felt as though that tidbit was tossed in there merely to explain the narrator's inability to perform a strong, solid dialect. I'm hoping it gets better the further I get into the series.
As for the story, I thought it was a fun, enjoyable book and I like the authors sense of humor. I was pretty taken aback when Bones and Cat got together so quickly, wrongly assuming it would take a couple books for that to happen. The author's solution for what happens when vampire's cry or otherwise... emit fluids... is somehow the most disturbing solution of that issue that I've ever come across. Pink? I don't know why but somehow just straight blood is less disgusting.
Really hoping to continue enjoying this series and seeing more developments in the characters.
Make it go faster, i really could not get through it... i could not keep on listening, it just did not capture me
i have not even made it all the way through. i just stopped at somebody and wasn't into the story at all therefore no motivation to finish...
I really did not think it was, I read all those great reviews and thought this was a great buy as it turned out it really was not. I love vampire story's but this one does not have enough content for me...
I am sad to say that i actually really would not recommend this book. I enjoyed the narration style and really liked the way it was told. I just did not like the story at all.
This was a creative take on vampire books, and I read a ton. I enjoyed the differentness about it as well as the fact that it actually had a story. It developed characters and you really got involved in the excitement of everything.
I love this book. I'm new to audiobooks and tested out samples of a bunch randomly when I was going on a long road trip. I heard so many samples when the voice would just annoy me to death. This was not one of them. The narrator did a fantastic job on the different voices and really bringing the emotion to life. No monotone boringness here.
This book made me go out and buy all the other books in the series. I love them all and am now addicted to it. It is fun and smart and a different take on the vampire culture. Although a traditionalist in vampire culture may not like the fact that restrictions and limitations on vampires are not in this book, that did not bother me at all. I really enjoyed this book.
Hola, soy India!
The series is number two in my library.
When Bones talked dirty to Cat, when Cat was still a prude.
Accents, and attitude.
Yes I would, but I also like to draw my audios out..
Fantasy fanatic, sci fi dabbler
The main character got on my nerves, the narrator's voice for some of the characters (OMG the mother!!) made me want to perforate my eardrums, the story was very formulaic despite a new (to me) take on a paranormal creature (I'd thought that a half-vampire heroine would be a bit more interesting).
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who isn't either a teenage girl or a big fan of the paranormal fantasy genre.
Vampires, WereWolves, Westerns, Fae...I love all the bloody weird!
Cat & Bones together. That is the only way!
Cat is of course the best character performed by Tavia. I have no idea who Tavia really is or what she looks like, but I will forever see her as a red headed half vamp with balls and sass!
When Cat was almost taken out by they master vamp and Bones barly made it. Also when Bones single handedly took out all the special unit to save Cat and her mom!
If you read this book, you will fall in love with these characters and sometimes refer to them in real life conversations like they are real people you know. So beware of sounding crazy to other people.
I'd place it in the top 25%
The concept of a half-vampire was new to me, so it's interesting.
I definitely got a
