This is NOT Twilight! It's a real, true Vampire story. It's addicting. It's exhilarating. No love triangle, no sun sparkling vampires. I liked Twilight. But I grew up when Vampires were frightening and after reading a book or watching a movie w/them in it you were afraid to go to bed. This book rocks the don't turn out the light factor. It's gory. It's heart pounding. It's got a deeply interesting story line what w/the great characters & how the Rabids came to be. If you like REAL vampire stories you'll enjoy this book.
The narrator is fantastic!!!!!!
I read this years ago. I was excited to get it on audio. Her other books were done well but this one is just, it sounds old. She did great, as always. But the sound is just, I can't put words to it other than it sounds old.
Its a great book however, well worth your credit or cash.
Its The Mortal Instruments book, of course it's awesome!
The story is wrapped up well, some things I did not like but as a whole it was good. Not great, good. They've introduced a few characters that we will see down the road no doubt in a spin off of these books. Like how the Clockwork books were kinda of a prequel, these new characters will be the main characters of the books following Instruments.
Looking forward to it Cassandra.
I loved this book! It is emotionally taxing, it is deeply interesting and it will break and heal your heart before it's over. Katja Millay, thank you. The author endears the 2 main characters to you w/such strength. You won't finish this book and be like "eh" you'll be like "wow."
Thaxton was terrific! Heyborne, umm...when he read any character but Josh he was great. But when he read Josh who is pretty important, he was so melancholy. Now I get that Josh has been through a great deal but he's soooo, none exciting in voice that I almost hated listen to him as Josh. No inflection no life in the voice. Yet when he read Drew or others it was awesome. Just saying.
This book was suggested to me by Audible because I read The Fault in Our Stars. I enjoyed this book far more than the stars book.
This book follows, A Little Night of Magic. The former main character is in the story but the main character focus is now on Stacy, one of Liv's 3 closest friends from the first book. It's just a funny, interesting and kind of mysterious at times. It's a fun read.
Firstly, Julie Kagawa, I'm a fan. I love that this series is about the frightening vampires I grew up with. Though there are humorous parts, this book is intense.
Again, no glittering, cuddling vampires here. It's pretty vicious at times. A great dystopian story.
This came after the original trilogy, Blood of Eden. It's not something you must read in order to start the trilogy but it's a fun read and worth your time.
Based upon the narrater I used a credit for this book. I always listen to the full sample though I knew I liked Therese Plummer from The Bollod of Eden series.
The story is interesting, mysterious crafty and fun. Some parts, if you dislike horror movies (not the bloody pointless one just anything that gives you a fright) you may not enjoy it. I, however, enjoy the stuff thast makes you jump. It's fey based.
It's worth a credit. I enjoyed it and would love to see the story continue.
I greatly enjoy fun, light hearted books. They are fretting. Though I use the term refreshing, the story still has suspense & a bit of mystery. Its a nice balance.
I downloaded this book based upon the narrater. I enjoy her telling of the story and the story its self is a good one.
I enjoyed this short listen. I loved the way the four characters lives inter twined. My only negative comment is; I wish it were a longer story as it was so interesting I didn't want it to end. I was rooting for the woman in the first story. This would be excellent to make a second, much longer book.
A fun read, exciting twists and turns, worth your credit and your time. The series as a whole are terrific.
Fantastic and realistic point of view of terminal illness in young people. Its a tear jerker however, the story is well written and well read. It's worth the emotional torment. A truly great book.
