    Nicole Ashe is the average American girl, except that she happens to work for a vampire and doesn't realize it. But all that changes when her boss sends her to convince a local rock musician – heartthrob, to help them retrieve an ancient relic that could be the answer to the vampire's curse. There is something about Nicole that stirs Alec's hunger nearly beyond control, but he would do anything to protect her...even from himself.

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

    I ALREADY HAVE!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Darkness?

    FINDING OUT WHO NICOLE'S FATHER WAS.


    What does Lee James and Destiny Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I SO LOVED THE NARRATORS WIDE VARIETY OF NATIVE DIALECTS PERFORMED FOR THE MANY CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK, BORN TO DARKNESS. THE CHEMISTRY WAS REALLY STRONG IN THE DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIPS IN THIS BOOK, AND NOT JUST 'READ' BY A NARRATOR ... YOU COULD FEEL THE TENSION BUILDING WITH THESE CHARACTERS - THE FEAR, THE DREAD, THE PASSION, THE SUSPENSE, EXCITEMENT, AND LOSSES ... WHICH IS MUCH BETTER DONE WITH BOTH A FEMALE AND MALE NARRATOR ( DESTINY LANDON & LEE JAMES) AS THEY PERFORMED EACH GENDER ROLE FLAWLESSLY. READING THE BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE, BUT IF YOU GET THE RIGHT NARRATORS LIKE LORRAINE ACCOMPLISHED ON HER BOOK BORN TO DARKNESS, THAN THE AUDIO WAS BETTER - JUST REALLY DID ENJOY THIS AUDIO LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT AUDIO BOOK IN THIS SERIES. I FOUND MYSELF LOST IN THE CHARACTERS, AKIN TO A MOVIE THAT IS PERFECTLY CAST. THE NARRATION WAS A PERFECT PACE - NOT TOO SLOW AND NOT ANNOYINGLY FAST. THE SHORT SHOTS OF HAUNTING MUSIC THAT CONNECTED THE CHAPTERS AND KEPT ME LISTENING (CLEVER!!), WERE REALLY WELL DONE AND ADDED A TOUCH OF INTEREST TO THE AUDIO.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    PROBABLY THE LOSS OF JAY AND HOW ONE EVENT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE ... FOREVER.


    Any additional comments?

    This comment is my response to a review on Born To Darkness by MirjonaTirana, Albania 09-26-12 - DEAR MIRJONA, YOU WROTE A BAD REVIEW FOR THE WRONG BOOK!!!!! YOU MENTIONED "LONG PAUSES" BETWEEN CHAPTERS, A DULL STORY AND DULL NARRATION?????" MY GOD!! ! THIS AUDIO WAS NOT DULL!! AND THE CHAPTERS HAD BEAUTIFUL HAUNTING/SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC JOINING THE CHAPTERS, SO THERE WERE NO PAUSES ANYWHERE! THERE WERE SEVERAL NARRATORS ON THIS BOOK WHO PERFORMED MAGNIFICENTLY A WIDE VARIETY OF DIALECTS AND PERSONALITIES. I AM TIRED OF SEEING BAD RATINGS FROM JEALOUS TROLLS ON THE WEB WHO JUST MAKE IT A HABIT TO BRING DOWN POPULAR, RESPECTED AUTHORS.

    Ask anyone today "Who is the world's best-selling fiction writer?", and you're likely to hear "J.K. Rowling" or "Dan Brown". But check the Guinness Book of World Records, and you'll find that the honor belongs to Agatha Christie, whose 78 mysteries have sold an estimated two billion copies in more than 45 languages, and have added two iconic investigators to our culture: Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Actually, it was fine for being a short audio, but it was more about 'selling more stuff.'


    Has Agatha Christie Podcast turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I thought the narrator has a wonderful British voice. Very soothing and articulate.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrator?

    Yes
