I think I picked this up because it was a cheapie at Amazon and then the book was equally cheap. Glad I went ahead and took the plunge.
Good world building, consistent, "believable."
Nicely laid out.
Listened to the Audible version. Had my doubts about the narrator, but ended up really enjoying it. The narrator seemed a little too disaffected at first, but she evened out and I enjoyed it immensely.
The only down side is there is another "love" triangle a la Stephanie Plum, but with vampires, werewolves, and witches. That is not a favorite trope of mine, but so far it is not too bad.
I liked this book. It reminded me of the Gail Carriger Soulless books set in the present instead of the past. The idea of a null is very interesting. The storyline was well thought out and I enjoyed listening to the world unfold. I liked the characters and enjoyed the romantic triangle that is setting up. I hope that Melissa Olson turns this into a series. I thought Amy McFadden was a fantastic narrator. This is the first time I've listened to anything she narrated and I would definitely listen to her again.
I would recommend this book but there are a few parts that will have you screaming at your audio device. It's a good first outing for the author. I would have given it a 3.5 if possible but it leaned more 3 than 4.
The author gave allot more closure than most books but the so-call reveal that probably will be the device for the next book was predictable to me.
My favorite characters were detective Cruz and Molly the roommate.
I would go see it.
enjoyable read with a captivating story. not high literature, but I definitely want to know what happens next and am invested in the characters.
pleasant surprise. Story does follow archetypes but with a few twists. Fast moving piece. Amy McFadden gives great performance as narrator.
Probably. It's a quick read/listen.
The characters were likable and kept me interested enough to want to read more about them.
Her female voices are very good and gives each character their own uniqueness.
I don't think it's film-worthy. The story is entertaining but not strong enough to make the leap.
The one thing I found annoying was the constant switching between first person and third person narration. Pick one and go with it.
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about this story. However I was pleasantly surprised that it was this good. Scarlet's story and the world around her is entertaining. There's no lag or drawn out story it's crisp and makes you think. Good effort for the first in a series. The twist was awesome! On to the second book.
Oh and the narrator was pretty good! Not annoying and doesn't take away from the story.
Her voices were unnatural--too deliberate and so distinct as to be overkill, it took the naturalness away from the speaking.
I'm not into Vampire books, but this was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it, and will probably do more vampire books. These are a lot better than I thought. I guess that's the purpose of the daily deal and the specials- to get the reader to try something different. I am usually not disappointed.
it gets better as it goes on
like the main character - she's flawed but not whimpy and not overly self assured
