Oh, I am more than sure that I will. The universe created is a nice twist to all the vampire and paranormal stories lurking about as of late. I was superbly pleasently surprised. I expected less and ended up finding a little gem.
I'm about to run off to buy the second book available on Audible right now. That's just how much I liked it.
The characters are well developed and I appreciated the inner struggles and how things unfolded.
The whole concept I, again, really love.
And, may I point out, this is not romance disguised as a fantasy/paranormal novel. Sure, it does have its dossage of romance, but it weaves itself nicely into the story and is in no way the center around which it spins. Romance novel haters must not be worried, this one won't turn into a harlequin/bodice ripper tale.
Oh, I won't spoil any of you. Listen to it. It's worth the credit.
I do want to point out that I loved the little curse words created by the author as to adjust the ususal lingo to that of her created word. It was a nice touch.
There was a comment by the author at the end about using Emilie Autumn's disc Opheliac as part of the inspiration for this books and that it would have served nicely as a soundtrack for the story. Being a EA fan, I could not agree more. For more than one moment I could imagine, without having heard this afterword of the author, the songs of hers as a sort of backdrop to soundtrack.
It thought it a nice coincidence that the author actually inspired herself somewhat in the music that I connected with the book.
I love light-hearted stories that don't take themselves too seriously. Especially when it comes to stories about vampires. One can find a bucket load of books out there about this type of storyline, but it's rather difficult to find books that are both funny and tend to keep an eye on the storyline.I, myself, love fantasy stories with a twist for the silly/funny side.Keeping this in mind... I'd recommend this audiobook to any friend, whom I may know shares may same literary taste, in a heart beat.
The story in itself is fun, but Ronconi's performance simply makes it superb. It's one of those times that narrator and book simply seem like a match made in heaven for me. I've lost count of how many times I've listened to this series over and over again.
I adore them all. Each character has it's uniqueness and Ronconi makes sure to make them all equally shine.
The description of when the main character finds out she has been turned is priceless in my opinion. This is a type of scenario that would more likely happen in real life, sans some silliness, if one were in Jane's shoes.
Did I already mention I love this series? Because I do. ;)
