I loved this story and the narrator. There were a couple of chapters that were almost hard to listen while driving as they were racked with sexual chemistry. Nothing graphic. Just pure attraction. I felt that I was part of the journey becoming a newly born vampire. Not just a vampire, but a strong above average vampire that sees things in her own unique way. Loved the story. My first rating of all 5's.
The narration was one of the best I've listed to so far. Will look for more books by this narrator.
Ye gods! Eleven hours of nothing happening. Dull amateurish writing. "I'm a vampire now". "OK, how's that working out for you". (All right, not a quote, but it might as well have been).
Bad editing (author is too fond of using some words again and again). A vampire novel totally without suspense. And most of the blood in the book comes from donor bags in the fridge!
There is an embryo here for some interesting conflicts to come. But I will not waste more time with this series.
Story was good. The reader was ok. She mispronounces many common words which can get annoying at times. Not sure if she is doing the male voices or there are uncredited males. One of the male voices sounds like Jacob from breaking dawn. The ending of this story felt really rushed but since there is another book to start right away its ok this time. Book two starts pretty much when this one ends.
I enjoyed the story, kept you entertained and wanting more. Narrator made everyone sound snobby, which was sort of annoying but I got used to it, lol.
This sets the premise for all the other books. Good start, although I would have liked more conflict from the main character, who seems fairly resigned to her fate (being way more accepting than realistic to me).
Loved the story line but not the narrator. The narrator used the same condescending tone throughout the entire story instead of using a variety of tones throughout the book.
Story is o.k.,alot like any other Vampire novel or movie that is out there.The Narrator kept the same tone in her voice with each character,I didn't feel that she gave them much individuality.Some times,it was even hard to follow,wondering WHO was actually supposed to be talking.There's either a lot of secrets being hidden or Ethen makes big decisions with out much thought.He didn't seem to have much faith in Merit but then goes & makes her this big time Sentinel.Who does that?So a bit unbelievable,with powers & choices made.Gradually coming into things & coming to under stand things,makes more sense.Over all,I enjoyed listening,would've liked it better just to have read the book though.
