    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."

    thin on plot; values & perceptions suited to an immature teenage girl; narrator's british accent reminds me of a disney movie

    something nonfiction with a meaningful message

    nope

    Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius". Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I recommend this book without reservation. The story is unpredictable. It is a high tech mystery but the book also presents strong moral themes...what does it mean to be a 'person'? when does the good of the many outweigh the rights of the few?


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought about this book when I was not reading/listening. It will stay with me and I expect to read it again one day.


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

    spoiler....when the main character accepted her identity

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    The story is amusing and clever. The narration adds to overall quality. The plot was complex enough to hold my interest but was not heavy.
