Yes because I dig this type of story.
Cade, reminded me of Jack Bauer if he were turned into a vampire.
He is a great narrator, made good choices in tone and characterization in the story.
Some Oaths Are Forever
I find myself drawn this type of story lately. The supernatural thriller/ urban fantasy genres. Blood Oath fits both. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Yes, simply because the narrator Bronson Pinchot is INCREDIBLE!! He is one of the the best narrators of all time. His voices and accents for each character is different. His narration is superb!
Yes. I love books about vampires, and this storyline was really interesting and different. This is the first book in a series, and there are questions that you find yourself asking but you are not sure when or how they will be answered
As I mentioned / commented above...his narration is one of the best! His voice of the main character is perfect...just the right amount of spooky vampire without going over the top. And he does different voices for all the characters...If the character is an older gentleman, he makes him sound older...plus every accent you can imagine.
I enjoyed the historical take on Johnson's vampire. also, if you're into the performance on the monster hunter international books thus will be right up your alley
I can't handle all of the ups and downs. My family believes I should be on medication. At one moment I am cheering, then upset, then angry, then cheering, then just sitting quietly. Mr. Farnsworth, you should more consideration for your readers (listeners) emotional state of well-being!
This book, and series as a whole, does a great job of weaving fact, fiction, the occult, and things that go "bump!" in the night into a fast paced adventure that leaves you wanting more.
I found myself identifying with the characters and quickly accepting the hidden-world that Christopher Farnsworth was pieced together. Just an all around fun ride, that I highly recommend.
Bronson Pinchot does another amazing job with narration. His choice in character voice and tone embodies the characters well and he is just an absolute pleasure to listen to. When you are done with the series (you ARE going to give this a try, right?) I recommend looking at some of the other books narrated by Pinchot, he really is very good.
I highly recommend this book and series. Passing on it would be a serious mistake, one that Nathaniel Cade just might show up to rectify in the still of the night.
I have not listened to Bronson's other performances, but I would have to say I was pleasantly surprised how well he did. He did a great job.
It's a very entertaining book and Bronson Pinchot does a great job narrating. Decent character development and it has a good flow to it.
It did, it had a lot of action without being too "detaily"
Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
I was drawn to this because Bronson Pinchot is the narrator. This book provides plenty of opportunity for Pinchot to display his characterization skills. For me, a Pinchot devotee, this is enough. I was pleased to discover that this is more like a political thriller than it is a horror novel—think Jack Reacher, Jack Ryan, Mitch Rapp. Plenty of action and life-saving heroics in defense of America. Did I mention sarcasm? There is sarcasm in plenty. This is a fun book. The plot is well constructed with a discernable beginning, middle development, and satisfying ending. Oh yea, did I mention that Bronson Pinchot is excellent? Well he is great. If you have come to the conclusion, as I have, that a great narrator can make almost any book a pleasant listening experience. In this case the book is interesting in its own right—adding Pinchot makes this a movie playing in your head.
I'm an eater of Words.
From tedious dialog to sloppy transitions this is one of the worst books I've listened to in a long time. How some people become published authors is beyond my understanding. Well done Christopher Farnsworth. You've beat the system and made money doing it.
Audio books make a long run feel way too short and can turn twenty minutes of yard work into an all day project.
Creative Engaging and Familiar
I would compare it to the Monster Hunters International series by Larry Correia because it has a supernatural theme, a cool hero team (vampire and career politician) and deals with the end of the world. What more could you ask for?
His ability to capture charters with an audible voice. I have read several books that I have listened to Mr. Pinchot narrate and I hear his voice for the characters as I read them. He is fantastic.
Only a smile of joy that I had a viable alternative to the Monster Hunters International series.
I can't wait to listen to the next installment. Somewhat predicable but fun just the same.
An interesting idea, good writing, good narration, good fighting etc. but personally I like a little humor between the blood and killing.
