    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A friend suggested I read this book. Having never read any of the Vampire books I didn't know what to expect. I thoroughly enjoyed this book so I would recommend it to a friend. I didn't want it to end. I found out that this is the first book in the Vampire Journals series and the story continues in successive books. I love to read books that are written as a series because when you find a good story you want it to go on and on. I will definitely read the next book as I am anxious to find out what happens next and if there will be a Vampire War.


    What other book might you compare Turned to and why?

    This is my first Vampire book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene where Caitlin was captured by a rival Vampire clan, taken back to the place where they lived, subjected to an inquisition, threatened by Holy Water which had no effect on her, and how she subsequently escaped.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to disagree with the previous reviewer's comments about the narrator. I am an avid listener of audiobooks and have heard all types of narration. The narrator does read slowly but I felt it was deliberately read in this manner to set the tone and worked quite well with story, sort of like the way one would read a ghost story.

    In Loved (Book 2 in the Vampire Journals), Caitlin and Caleb embark together on their quest to find the one object that can stop the imminent vampire and human war: the lost sword. An object of vampire lore, there is grave doubt over whether it even exists. If there is any hope of finding it, they must first trace Caitlin's ancestry. Is she really the One? Their search begins with finding Caitlin's father. Who was he? Why did he abandon her?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Loved to be better than the print version?

    I rarely have time to read print editions of any book. After listening to Book 1 - Turned, I anxiously awaited the release of the audio version of Loved - Book 2 in Morgan Rice's Vampire Journals Series. I only hope Book 3 is on its way in audio format soon or I may have to find the time to read the print version. Can't wait to find out what is going to happen next.


    What about Brianna Knickerbocker’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed Brianna Knickerbocker's performance. She has an interesting quality to her voice.


    Any additional comments?

    The story of Caitlin and Caleb continues in Book 2 with surprising plot twists and turns. There were some real unexpected moments but don't want to ruin the story for anyone by discussing them here. Morgan Rice reveals just enough about his plot and his characters to reel you in and leave you wanting for more. I sense there is so much more to learn about the fate of these characters, especially with vampire war about to commence. Super anxious for Book 3. If you are a fan of vampire stories, I would highly recommend this series.
