All and all Very intertaining
Nope, Just that if it was made into a movie or a series I would watch it!
This is my first vampire listen. Interesting premise ,the reader does a great job I felt the voices were perfect. Time flew by as I got caught up in the story.
Yes I liked her performance a lot better to some other books I've listened to
This was one of the best vampire books I've read/ listened to in a very long time.
I was very surprised by this novel because of the unique approach to vampires. Not necessarily the vampire lore itself, but the characters...especially Samantha Moon, the main character. A soccer mom, private investigator vampire!
I love the way Samantha has to deal with normal, everyday activities, like picking the kids up from school and making dinner, while she's dealing with this whole vampire issue that was forced upon her. And then, to make it even more unique, she's solving cases.
A strange yet delightful mix because not only do these situations NOT blend well, Samantha is forced to deal with the consequences of trying to make them all work together. She goes above and beyond to live a normal life and pretending this vampire thing isn't going to change anything...and yet everything is changed and falls apart. Fabulous character development and I found myself laughing, crying and getting angry with the characters throughout the story.
The narrator of the novel was spectacular! She not only represents the voice of Samantha Moon that brings the character to life, but she has that kind of "hardball detective" sound to her voice, almost like a Mickey Spillane novel. Just brilliant!
I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who loves vampire stories with a little bit of mystery.
I listen in the car while i drive. I have eclectic tastes in books and if it interests me I listen till its over.
I felt as if the story was disconnected and the lore changed as the book went on. The characters were a bit narrow and not very well done.
I don't think I will.
This could make a good series. I liked the plot and was easy to follow.
At the end showing allot of restraints
No this was the first of hers
When she seen her husband was having an affair. How many people you nowould not of tore him apart
Overall an interesting read, but I'm not sure why everyone LOVED it. It was short and mostly light. But I have a real problem with vampires that sweat... That's just not right. Plus she's invisible in mirrors, but shows up on pictures?!? Really? Her character goes from housewife in denial to kick ass with no real transition. There were a lot of things that pulled me out of the book and were more distracting than anything.
I don't know if I'll read further in the series. Maybe in a down time.
The book just seems off..
Ann McCafferey in her Psy series set a good mark for paranormal adventures with well rounded characters, the Michelle Sagara's elantra series does the same in a more modern series, Jeanine Frost night huntress series does kickass with romance very well.. This book doesn't' reach any of those marks and it sounds like just inexperience and very poor guidance from an editor.
It ins't a terrible book, but it ins't good either. The main character clearly has bitterness about men from the beginning and the way she talks about them saying "down girl" repeatedly (editor please!) objectifies the men. Now this anger/frustration makes perfect sense as you listen to more of the story, but the book seems to end suddenly just as some promising characters are finally starting to reveal themselves. The whole thing feels like an action book that was meant to be action/romance and just never got around to it.
If there were another book in the series maybe listening to both would make the pieces fall in place, but i am not sure i would buy the next book to find out.
