    Ethan Wate has spent most of his life longing to escape the stiflingly small Southern town of Gatlin. He never thought he would meet the girl of his dreams, Lena Duchannes, who unveiled a secretive, powerful, and cursed side of Gatlin, hidden in plain sight. And he never could have expected that he would be forced to leave behind everyone and everything he cares about. So when Ethan awakes after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, he has only one goal: to find a way to return to Lena and the ones he loves.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Redemption the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is very good at giving each person their own voice and personality. The writing and narration put together makes this book an absolute hit. I just hope that when the movie comes out the actors can give the characters as much depth as the author and narrator did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the orginality. It is a story that hasn't been done. So many books are following the same line that their predecessors have and this book takes a whole new spin on the ideas of witches and other things that go bump in the night. It was a refreshing read with refreshing ideas.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.

    He is Layel, king of the vampires, a master seducer no woman can deny. But since a rogue horde of dragons killed his beloved over two centuries ago, Layel has existed only for vengeance...until he meets Delilah. Wary of love, the beautiful Amazon wants nothing to do with the tormented vampire. Yet there's no denying their consuming desire every time he nears her. Neither trusts the other - nor can they survive alone.

    "Get on with it already."

    Where does The Vampire's Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably near the middle which doesn't mean much cause I don't read many books I don't like.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gena Showalter? Why or why not?

    Yes. I don't hate her books, but I am not to where I just couldn't live without her either.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene where she is not discussing how inadvertently smitten the two are without wanting to admit it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. This book is more of a guilty pleasure. There is nothing particularly inspirational about it.


    Any additional comments?

    The story line is not a bad one. The only reason that this book doesn't get better reviews is because the author felt the need to drone incessantly about the attraction between the two and how neither, especially the vampire, are willing to admit it. If is hand't been for that then the story line would have been a good one. I just feel that there is so much more that Showalter could have done with the story, given that she didn't dwell on the two longing for each other and denying one another.
