Im not completely opposed to zombie stories but the gore and mutilation can be a little much for me sometimes. This book offers a good story of survival with good, intriguing characters and a solid plot without an overwhelming "yuck factor". I could'nt stop listening I just had to find out what would happen next.
Its a great beginning to the series and I look forward to reading more, Ive already downloaded the second. If your sensitive to the hardcore zombie terror of some novels you may like this one for its modest approach to the subject.
That Georgina is actually a character that you could be friends with, I did not expect her to be so likable considering that she is succubus.
Its entertaining and she does not come across as evil.
She made the characters sound great, even the men. I would listen to her again.
Not overly reactive, only pleasantly surprised that she is so down to earth.
Im glad there were so many reviews to help me decide to read this one, I may not have chosen it otherwise. It was not sexually offensive as one may expect with such a subject matter. Its a good read with characters that you can enjoy.
I wish Stony could have had a love affair and a deeper connection with someone besides his family which was a wonderful connection. Once the Stony was away from his family the story became quite slow for me and lost a bit of my attention in the middle.
Sure, it was a pleasant read, I did enjoy it and I liked Stony, it just was not my favorite book of all time.
On the mark.
Possibly, Im not sure I would be in the audience but Im sure others would like it very much.
This is not a bad story, I enjoyed many aspects of it and glad I did read it, it just has highs and lows that kept this from being an excellent five star story for this reader.
I loved that Angel, as a zombie, still retains her human personality and proves to be sweet, smart, and has the ability to grow and improve herself despite being a newly turned zombie. She is not a mindless killing machine as in most zombie themed novels. A refreshing new angle for this subject.
Angel is my favorite character.
This is my first listen to Allison McLemore's work. She was a great choice for this book, I will be looking to find more of her readings in the future.
Yes, I did not want to stop listening to it. The negative to this is that I went through the first and second book so quickly that Ill have to wait for the third and it feels as if time is dragging until it is released.
I would suggest this for anyone looking for a fun, smart and entertaining read. And I agree with a review Ive read here that compares this to a Sookie Stackhouse feel, if you enjoyed S.S. then Im sure you'll be happy with this one, too.
I really like this series. The first book I thought was a great listen, a zombie book without too much of the gore that can be a turn off for me. This one was a little more intense as Eric and Gabe make the decision to move away from their well fortified location in the mountains with a newly introduced family across country to Colorado.
They encounter an aggressive group who want to steal their cache of guns and the woman with them and are taken in by another group who help them and become good friends.
This story is smart and fast paced.
Really??? Im so disappointed after reading a series Ive always looked forward to each new installment and enjoyed them so much to having them end this way. I can compare the feeling to expecting Fourth of July Fireworks that only result in firecrackers and sparklers.
I was hoping for a bittersweet farewell to an old friend Sookie Stackhouse and all the characters introduced in the series Ive loved so much and vested so much time to, this was a very long series but was left with complete strangers instead.
Was Harris bored by the end of the series?
Johanna Parker's performance was the most redeeming factor of this book.
I did have fun listening to this book. Amanda Ronconi could read an instruction manual and make it a blast to listen to so this book does have that.
The story is an everyday romance story of a couple who meet, have angst for each other with undertones of deep attraction they resist until they finally submit to all the heated temptations and end up in the relationship we all know is going to happen.
The differences here is that Molly Harper is an Ace story teller as much as Ronconi is a terrific reader, they are a great combination for entertaining books.
I did not find this to be the best of Molly Harper, just a little taste of the quality she normally shares. If this is your first Molly Harper novel, dont judge by this production, you will enjoy it but she has provided much, much better.
After reading this second book of the series there is improvement and the overall feel of the story and characters for me, as the first one left me lukewarm and only mildly interested in continuing with the series in general.
Having chosen to read on I found a better understanding of Janet, she is tough, smart and compassionate. A well rounded character is forming and her relationships with the other characters are coming to life and feel more sincere. I look forward to reading the rest of the series now.
The daughter of an underworld goddess she is being trailed and monitored by gods, powerful dragons and others who are watching to see if she will realize the strength of her own power and if she will be able to handle it wisely or destroy the world.
I have read this series and although I have enjoyed it and am interested in learning how things turn out for Kylie, I am hoping that in future additions to this series that the story itself moves along a little more. Some issues and questions are dragging out a bit and resolutions to some of these are long overdue.
Im hoping that future installments contain some conclusion or even new areas to uncover or I may lose interest and let the remainder of this series go unread.
Wow, as if being a teenager dealing with the threat of her parents divorcing and having concerns about her own sanity because she has horrible nightmares and sees ghosts, now she is sent to a camp that she thinks is a punishment for a misunderstanding of events at a friends party. But the camp is not punishment, its a camp for teens who just happen to be supernaturals learning about their abilities as werewolves, witches, vampires and more and how to live in a human world and be accepted.
Kylie is certain there are no such thing as supernaturals much less that she could be one herself. But she may be wrong about that.
Its a good story, the characters are interesting and I look forward to following the mystery of Kylie discovering which boy she will choose to learning just what it is she may be.
