Jesse Bering answers all those nagging little question about human gentiles, they reason why they're shaped like that, adding not only humor but his own brand of "punny" humor.
While some of the research and science - not much, just some - wasn't my cup of tea, Jesse Bering did an excellent job of creating an excellent flow from one subject to the next.
Although I can't say I have a favorite chapter, the fact that Jesse Bering read his own book was an extra pleasure. Mr. Bering has a great reading voice; not to fast or too slow.
Many of the authors puns were well placed and created many laugh out loud moments. I probably looked like an idiot to the other drivers, laughing while doing my commute. He's a quick wit and the humor was well placed.
Yes, I plan to listen to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf again because it was so much fun to listen to! Amanda Ronconi's performance was pitch perfect on all the female characters. I do have to admit, though, that I was put off just a smidgen by her attempt at the male "voices". But all in all, it was a clever and fun romp.
I like a good story with full, fleshed-out characters and this series has it. The heroine has a mysterious past and even more mysterious, supernatural powers. It's just a good listen. Khristine Hvam does an excellent job; her changes in voice are seamless and not at all distracting. I especially like her voice for "Beast".
While Blood Cross is in the current vampire and supernatural fiction vein (pun intended), I can't think of another book or series to really compare this to. Yes, there's a strong semi-human female lead. Yes, there's some flirting. But - there's a mystery and real character development.
