I love the formula for vamp stories where female vamps have two lovers vying for their attention. This story is pure escapist entertainment.
This book/series has the same witty repartee as the Sookie Stackhouse series. However I have not yet seen a character be a good mother and a vampire .
It had a classic anti hero. This was not the usual mystery and the story owes its success to that fact.
Lots of surprises and would have never guessed at the outcome. Those are the best mysteries to me. I also have a habit of reading books before the movie. The movie would have spoiled the book completely and now I am really ready to see the movie.
Amy's gone but where's the body?
Great writing style. Reads almost as if its scripted with first him being the narrator and then her narrating. This style keeps you unsettled which is good. It's nice to have them keep you guessing.
To mystery lovers this is satisfying. It's not the absolute best but it is a good read and listen.
I kept an interest in the story as it has a few threads that merged and kept me interested in the next set of facts revealed. I wasn't quite able to put it all together which is not the usual case. Even with a good mystery I can usually figure out who the doer is.
While I liked the main character, Eve, the cop's daughter was a very interesting character. She shook things up and annoyed people but proved to be a vital person to the story.
The descriptions of walking through the old mental hospital I found really creepy. Old mental hospitals get to me, I worked in one and it always made my skin crawl. Didn't keep that job forever, lol.
While this isn't literature 101 it is very entertaining. So much so that I will buy other books by this author.
This book was fair and would have been better with another narrator. I almost traded the book back bust decided to tough out the slow monotone and I finally got used to it. The reader's voice achieved few levels and sounded sleepy all the way through. For those that are also interested in witch lore this had some good information.
I enjoyed when she made the Madragora out of Mandrake root and when she described brewing and ritual.
Her energy level seemed to be low. No highs and lows vocally with a monotone that sounded flat.
Absolutely because it is an excellent story and a superb sequel.
Rose the Hat because she was so deliciously evil.
Dan, because he was the perfect voice for the grownup Danny.
To answer this question would be a bit of a spoiler but I will say this, this is truly a great horror story. Stephen King at his best. The book is full of suspense and is a good scary story.
Sequels are hard to do and this is one of the best I have ever experienced. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through the reading of the book.
If you like the Sookie Stackhouse series you will love this. This book is full of that witty repartee and banter that we all like so much. You will find yourself cracking up so much that people will look at you to see if you are alright. Some of the best vampires happen by accident and Jane is no exception. She was on her was on her way home and BAM it happened. Now she has to deal with this and the family from hell. Once you read the first one you will be hooked. I dare ya. LOL
Jane's family and the bookstore.
Of course Jane was my favorite character. She rocks.
Jane: an Abnormal gurl with an Abnormal problem.
Don't drink milk while listening, you might just end up spraying it out your nose. Enjoy.
It was unexpected.
This story has a bit of a surprise but tells the story in a bit of a lackluster way
Clear, very British, a bit monotone.
A long trip to unknown parts.
This book while accurate about life as we get older was just a bit depressing and not real interesting.
