Being a fan of the Anita Blake series, I thought I would give this book a try... It took me a little listening, but I started to enjoy the reader after a little bit... Yes, there's a lot of repetition in the writing but the story moved along enough to keep me interested... I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a lighter fantasy novel - one that is incorporated with a familiar environment (i.e. the US, New York, modern day, etc)... I've ordered the second book so you know it's entertaining enough to inspire caring in the characters.
I would have given this more stars but for me the narration was so jarringly WRONG, I couldn't rate the audio book higher. Never fear, I was able to get past my initial dislike of his voice and cruddy acting skills - and I'm so glad I did. I have since read (on my Kindle) 7 more of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and am very thankful I found them! While I was a devotee of the romance novel in my young adulthood, I have since moved on to mysteries/suspense/paranormal/urban fantasy - romance novels now usually bore me. Not these! They're an awesome mix of the action/supsense and romance... I highly recommend the series (even if I can't recommend the audio book!)
