    Hopeless. Freak. Elephant. Pitiful. These are the words of Skinny, the vicious voice that lives inside 15-year-old Ever Davies's head. Skinny tells Ever all the dark thoughts her classmates have about her. Ever knows she weighs over 300 pounds, knows she'll probably never be loved, and Skinny makes sure she never forgets it. But there is another voice: Ever's singing voice, which is beautiful but has been silenced by Skinny. Ever decides to undergo a risky surgery that may help her lose weight and start over.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I normally do not like this type of science fiction but the book had me hooked from the first chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could relate the the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I would listen to him again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I think this would make a great movie. Not your average apartment building

    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow Kiss to be better than the print version?

    Not sure


    What other book might you compare Shadow Kiss to and why?

    Clean version of Sookie Stackhouse books. (Both good reads)


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Very talented, easily transitions to different characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I stumbled upon this series looking for something my daughter could listen too and got hooked myself. Its a little too PG13 for my 11 year old but I will let her listen to it in a few more years.
