I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.

    Raylene Pendle (AKA Cheshire Red), a vampire and world-renowned thief, doesn’t usually hang with her own kind. She’s too busy stealing priceless art and rare jewels. But when the infuriatingly charming Ian Stott asks for help, Raylene finds him impossible to resist - even though Ian doesn’t want precious artifacts. He wants her to retrieve missing government files: documents that deal with the secret biological experiments that left Ian blind. What Raylene doesn’t bargain for is a case that takes her from the frozen outskirts of Minneapolis to the mean streets of Atlanta.

    Story

    The narrator was great. The story would drag and drag. I'd zone out for large periods and come back and she was still thinking girly thoughts about something. She'd go on about how important it is to not care for humans, and then you find out she cares for two kids. She would go on about how different she looks, but no one EVER noticed... until sometimes they did. Shoot, it's stated at least twice how black her eyes are and how her pupils take up her whole iris... now go look at the cover. Feels like the character needed cleaned up. She would tell you how she got here and how successful she is and smart, then F everything up. She talked like a hard ass, but made all the HORRIBLE rookie mistakes. AND, she was the MOST emotional and nonvampiric vampire I've ever read. If the story had been with a normal non preternatural, it may have been good. But it's like it was written for any lead female, and then the fact that she was a vampire was added as an after thought. So yeah. I didn't enjoy it. I have been trying to listen to it for two weeks now and I can't get through it, that almost NEVER happens. I average two audio books a week. (lots of driving.)

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....
