Ok first off one thing i realize looking back after listening to the WHOLE audio book is the narrator does have more variation in her tone of voice the further you get into the book. I didnt like that the story seems to start off in the middle of things and takes AGES to get around to explaining even the tiniest bit of the main characters background and why she is in the middle of running from assassins when the book opens. from there it does turn into a pretty good story apart from the fact that it is VERY choppy. I hope that this author learned how to write things more smoothly in the following books... ( for instance an "intimate" scene in the book where the characters are in bed in the middle of arousing each other and then she throws in a LONG discussion between them that really wouldnt be conducive to that kind of mood... and then after a talk that would have taken quite a while they suddenly remember what they were doing and resume? or out takes in the middle of fights too.. .. the other BIG thing that kept me from giving it a higher rating is the narrator has a problem with mispronunciation. Especially with words like werewolves or wererats she pronounces it weerwolves.
once again this author ranks among the cream of the crop in my opinion ... i love ALL of her books... and i've either read or listened to all but one of the books she has out so far.. so far am saving that last one (a different series than this) for a rainy day at the moment since it is one that i know will be excellent before even reading the synopsis. Believe me ... start with the first book in any of Richelle Mead's series and if you like it you'll be sure to love ALL the rest of her books.. she has 3 series out right now... this one (about a few types of vampires and vampire half breeds, you'll learn alot more in the books), as well as one series about a Succubus and her Co=workers for the side of hell who though evil really are not all that bad and some Angels to boot... and her other series which includes things MUCH more out of the usual.
