I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
I am a huge fan of Morgan Rice her description of everything is amazing!
THE VAMPIRES!! <3
She is a good person to read the door
If you haven't read Morgan Rice's books your missing out!
The narrator was ok, I just wasn't too into the story. Based on the summary it sounded right up my ally, but just felt a tad too juvenile for my taste. This is just my opinion and I would never disregard the author. Everyone has their own taste.
No. The story premise has potential but the writing is simple and uninteresting. The narrator was leaden and slow.
No. I'm normally a big fan of books about newbie vampires but I didn't like this book at all. The protagonist, I can't call her a heroine, a slow witted 18 year old who seems to fall in love with any attractive guy who treats her nicely. Through the course of this blessedly short book Caitlin discovers she is a half-vampire when, after her 18th birthday, she suddenly develops a thirst for blood and super speed and strength. Unfortunately her first blood lust has her draining a Russian singer at Carnegie Hall during intermission though she can't really remember what happened. She wakes up in a dumpster with a sudden allergy to the sun and still hasn't quite figured out what may be wrong with her. Clueless that the police and FBI are searching for her she is captured by the "evil vampire" coven. They are convinced she must belong to an invading coven and attempt to torture her with holy water. Shocked that she is immune she breaks free and is rescued by a "good vampire" who is convinced she is "the One" who is foretold to start the final vampire war and lead them to the "sword of power" that will save everything.
Slow, very few inflections. I wasn't impressed with how the character was written but it was made worse by the dead delivery.
Disappointment with a female character who seemed destined to be rescued by the hunky man while being constantly befuddled by events.
Caitlin makes Bella look like a freaking genius but there is some potential with the character. Problem is she must be rescued by the hunky good vampire and swoons happily in his arms. I dislike the character enough to not even give the series a chance. I recommend a pass on this book.
No I wont listen again. Book 2 is same reader but much better...........its worth listening to this book so you understand the characters more later on. But thats all!
Nothing. The narrator was the absolute worst on Audible, so bad I couldn't finish listening to it.
I will finish reading the book and adjust my rating accordingly. I rated it in all areas, as it wouldn't let me just rate the performance. I would hate to lower a score for an author's work because of a terrible narrator, which is why I gave it 4 stars.
The narrator was terrible. She speaks slow and in a monotone. I've never wanted to return a book because of a narrator until this one and I have over 300 books in my library. She is totally flat in speaking. There is no emotion. I think the Text to Speech feature on my Kindle could read this better, and that is pretty much the way this narrator read the book. Just reading the words and pausing at the end of the sentences. I had a hard time starting this book & thought maybe I could get into it more if I listened to it & that was a really bad idea.
I really can't think of anything nice to say about the narrator at all. Her voice was childish, on top of boring.
Save yourself & read the print version. this will be the first book I'm returning due to the poor worrk of the narrator.
I TRIED to get through even a quarter of the way through this book, but the narrator spoke so slowly and in a teenage whine, that I just couldn't stand it. 2 minutes into the book I knew it was going to be an issue with the VERY slow cadence of the narrator. Unfortunately, the content never had a chance. The part I did listen to wasn't particularly interesting... I'm disappointed and sorry I wasted the money on the audiobook.
I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and I would have to say this is the worst I've ever heard. :(
The speed and cadence of the reading was just unbearable.
I would possibly try purely out of curiousity. If Morgan Rice ended the book so abruptly just to get you to read the next, then kudos to her. Goal achieved. If the ending was suppose to be a "good stopping point" then I think she needs rethink her writing career.
Again, only out of curiousity, but I'm not in a hurry.
She did an good enough job. Sometimes she could've picked up the speed of her narration, but otherwise I think she did good for the tone of the book.
Yes, to write this review.
The plot wasn't all that bad, but the author tried so hard to make a mystery, that she forgot to also give us some answers in the same book. The main character got a bit irritating after a while, but the story ended before I truly got the urge to mentally b-slap her for being so stupid.
