Yes, some of the characters seem to have psychic abilities and there is a hint of a supernatural story line. I would expand on these areas more.
I thought it ended as it should. I made the mistake of getting curious about the real life events in the story and read about them half way through the book. It totally ruined the second half of the book for me. Read the story and then if you are curious read the history afterwards-it's not exactly the same anyway.
There are some editing problems with the narration and some of the voices seem off. Having said that, these items do not significantly impair the story.
If you are looking for a brooding romance where a misunderstood prince is rescued by the love of a coy maiden this is not your story. The historical backdrop is fascinating but there are some very sad and shocking parts to this story.
I have not read the print version but I did enjoy the audio version.
Ophelia, local vampire council leader. She's not the vampire you were expecting and I wanted to know more about her.
I am listening to The "Undead in my Bed" sublet now, it is very similar and has many of the same characters. I see a trend-strong independent woman falls for a vampire who somehow needs her help.
I loved the part when vampire Cal is grilling teenage Gigi's date. Also, there is a steamy scene when Iris and Cal find themselves in danger.
This story reminds me of True Blood (based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels) but funnier and with less brooding. One thing I must say-this southern gal has to call BS on some of these characters but I think that may be how the narrator voices them. I looked it up- she's from New York.
If you've ever been at a loss as to why someone did something so unimaginable, read this book. It's like being a fly on the wall in the mind of a sociopath. The author provides thought provoking examples to help you understand how the mind works and before you know it you are learning new things about yourself and those around you.
When the the victim of a sociopath who is a family member asks the psychiatrist "What am I going to do?" The psychiatrist leans forward and says "You are going to protect yourself, that's what."
When the soul sleeps
A good read, but it is obvious that the author favors liberal role models and ideals.
