It was an interesting start to the series. I liked the unique take on Vampire mythologies, incorporating magic was a great touch.
I'd have to say the interactions with each vampire, I wanted to know more of how their power worked.
My problem with this book was the narrator. How do I explain this, Anthony put a definite pause/punctuation at the end of every sentence. So instead of it sounding like a continuous story it sounded more like bad slam poetry. It made it so very difficult to get into the story, I KNOW I would have liked it more if someone else was reading it. And since he is narrating all of them I'll have to read them instead. I can't bring myself to pay money for that experience again.
I just wish someone else had read these books, someone else could have made them great. As is, it was more of a chore to get through.
Its surprising humor and intricate plot.
That it kept me guessing. I got this on a whim. I thought it would be a laugh, and it was, in a good way. The characters were enjoyable and they got the time travel physics correct. What a pleasant surprise.
I usually feel like when men try to do women's voices it leaves them seeming shallow or dim witted. I didn't mind his at all.
Trying not to spoil anything.. I loved the way they described her after they are pulled apart closer to the end. It was very well done.
This one is def worth a credit. What a fun ride
Anyone who enjoyed the Twilight books, they were equally as awful.
Hopefully something good. I have 2 books left from the last BOGO sale, hopefully one comes through.
I dont think a cast would have made it better. Its hard to improve on weak character development and dialog.
That would edit out most of the book.
None of the characters we're very likable. I like a strong female lead and every character in this book needed work. If I hadn't gotten this from a BOGO dale I would have returned it.
Characters you could CARE about. They were so bland! How is that even possible when its an erotica writer and her publisher?
Hopefully something good. I got a lot of 2 for a credit books and so far I have liked one of them. Anything Kresley Cole or Joey W Hill I will purchase and love.
I think the narrator did as good a job as he could with the source material. His female voices were a bit obnoxious to listen to.
The whole book needed a rewrite.
I disliked this book I almost got a refund. If I hadn't gotten it and another for 1 credit I would have, It had so many good reviews. What a disappointment.
More of a time waster, I just couldn't bring myself to care about the characters. The concept was great the execution was lacking.
I would, but it wont be on the top of my list.
The character was supposed to be a 26 yr old woman. I couldn't tell if it was the narrator or the way it was written. But it felt more like a 50yr old lady.
Yes, only because in movies they give more action to keep the audience entertained
I didn't believe the characters age at all. I get the suspension of disbelief, but the character runs an Inn for the supernatural! What an awesome job, it should come with some personality.
If I cared about any of the characters. I just didnt, they kept making the same mistakes over and over.
No, I know there are good ones. I just have to find them
His performance wasn't awful, but the source material was so bad it was hard to like anything about the book.
Unfortunately most of the women, and that's the whole problem! They we're all such weak characters, needing the men to come save them. One of them was a flipping DOCTOR!!! She should have taken control of the situation and been a huge asset to the team. But no, the writer demeaned her character and gave her PTSD for some unknown reason. Probably to make the men feel more superior.
Don't waste your money or credit and pick up WWZ, The Remaining, or the Rot & Ruin series.
Absolutely and I already have, I cant tell you how many times I caught myself giggling or bark laughing to the point I'm sure the people driving next to me thought I was insane.
The Art of Breathing or any of the books in the Bear, Otter & the Kid series. TJ Klune is fast becoming a favorite author.
The first date... no wait! Where he hits him with his car. No wait... Their first attempt at being together. Damn there are so many good ones.
A book full of awesomely uncomfortable moments
This was a great stand alone or addition to the Bear, Otter & the Kid series. So much fun, and quickly became one of my all time favs.
A definitive plot would have helped. Its like the writer couldn't decide what he wanted the story to be about.
A good direction would have been nice. I thought we would eventually get some sort of actual description of the CONTAGION! People we're infected and we saw resulting behavior, but not a clear picture. Even when, for some unknown reason, we started following characters who were responsible for the spread of the disease.
I have definitely heard worse performers, and I'm sure my frustration with the source material didn't help. But I had to keep rewinding 30 seconds to see what character was saying what. He didn't have a clear inflection of voices between characters, even with the females. I definitely wont seek him out, but I wont NOT buy a book because he narrated it.
Well... since I didn't finish it this will be a biased choice. But Delta. They started with a semi strong female character and proceeded to make her useless. Completely dependent on male characters for help.
Frustrated doesn't begin to describe my experience with this book. I tried to finish it, I got a good 6 hours in until I literally screamed and deleted it from my library. There is a scene with 1 of the only 2 female characters in the book. She has a gun and a clear advantage over her would be attacker. Her partner is down, she then wallows about how she would love the downed partner to get up and save her. Then gets overrun by 4 men, all unarmed. While she still has a loaded pistol in her hands. WHAT?!?! I get wanting a different scenario for your characters, but seriously? I can stand drivel like this. She literally let herself be overrun while wishing her male friend would come and save her. I just... can't.
The narrators performance adds just the right element to this truely amazing story. I was on the fence for the first book and got it in a 2 for 1 credit special. I fell in love instantly. Khristine's voice is perfect as is her accents for the characters. You always know who is talking and she really brings the pages to life.
Its so in depth without being overly graphic in its attention to detail. The story has a wonderful flow that isn't broken up by too descriptive landscapes.
No, this is a first and I will jump on the chance to listen to her again.
"Loose yourself in the world of Angels and Monsters"
Wonderful synergy of writing and performance! A perfect blend.
Absolutely, I already have. Its a refreshing take on the zombie genre, if the dead can walk why wouldn't ghosts be real as well?
The honest look into the root of humanity, and what a cataclysmic event would do to people.
This was the second, the first being the First Days. I would listen to her again for sure.
There are too many to count and would definitely be spoilers.
This was an intense and gratifying listen
Absolutely, and I plan on it. I loved that they didn't shy away from the fact there would be child zombies, lots of them. Most books/movies gloss over that fact. It makes for a more terrifying realistic view.
Katie for sure, I related to her more. She was such a strong character, even in her vulnerable moments, she was never ashamed of she she was, and she loved unconditionally.
This was the first time I have heard one of her narrations, but I def will again.
The first chapter was heartbreaking and real and hooked me from the get go. I was completely invested and so glad I picked up this book.
Take a chance on this series, you wont be disappointed.
