This audiobook ranks high in the category of "young adults ". Very well written and acted out in the audio book.
I like Noah, probably because he is the stronger character and very supportive of Echo when she needs it.
I almost prefer to have a male and female read the separate parts than have one actor read both.
I cried along with Echo when she remembered the time she fell one the stain glass window her mentally ill mother made. Then drugged by her mom. Echo tried to get her father via phone, but only voice mail while her mother continued to attempt to kill her.
When Echo confronted her father as to what he left her there. Why didn't he check his phone? Why he doesn't love her? I was very sad, as her dad just only say he was sorry.
I thought it was a great that Echo's dad did not jump down Noah's throat with 20 questions, etc., when Echo came down in a sleeveless dress for a school dance allowing her to be herself and Noah said she is beautiful. That was all Echo's father needed to hear.
One of the top ten.
When Roxie was beaten, near raped, tied up, and kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend, Billy.
My favorite scene is when Roxie's mother "mom bomb" Hank's house with Halloween decorations and then proceeded to offer Luke "hot cocoa, coffee, maybe tea." Not understanding the purpose of the body guard.
Roxie and Hank are at the social event of the season when her ex-boyfriend,Billy, arrives to take Roxie with him by force if needed. After Billy is taken into custody I thought the argument between Hank and Roxie as to how the take down went down, and then who would have the last word. It was also nice to see the Rock Chicks" have Roxie's back during this argument.
Kristen Ashley takes a serious social issue, battered women, and she takes us on Roxie's journey. The transformation Roxie goes through in order to have the courage to stand up to her abuser in the end. Of course it has it funny moments and sexy moments, which makes the book worth listening to.
Yes, I love the series.
I liked the main character/vampire Amaury.
Mr Foley has a pleasant voice to listen to when bringing in both male and female point of view. Also, he changes his voice well that I can tell the different between males and or females etc. Not every narrator can do this.
I ended up listening to most of it in one sitting. I thought the story had a slow start so it did take me a few days to get past the first 50 plus pages.
This book introduces the New York Vampires into this story and all the drama between Zane, Quinn, and Yvette with the San Francisco's main characters. As Amaury learned the hard way, don't have sex with some one at work, as women have long memories and grudges. I don't know when Yvette will or if she will forgive & forget whatever happened. Though this has little to do with the main story we all love a little soap opera. It should be interesting to read the series as a lot This book was little slow in the beginning.
An unknown vampire is using mine control to use Security Guards to kill their clients and then themselves. A woman, (main character and new love interest for Amaury) Nina, is the foster sister of this security guard and is out for vampire blood to find out who killed her brother.

It should be interesting to read the series as a lot can happen over 500 plus years between these vampires. happen over 500 plus years between these vampires.
I thought the audio edition was fair. The voice was a bit whining at times, making it hard to stay with the book.
The author was good at introducing the main character, Natalie, to the O'Connor family. As the book continued it was fun to have the extended family in Ireland get involved in everyone's business.
I learned a lot about archaeology, which was very interesting.
