    Where does The Darkling Thrush rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Darkling Thrush is probably in my top 5 if I am ranking by narrators. I have several favorites (Holter Graham, Simon Vance, Barbara Rosenblat), Max Miller has immediatly put himself right up there. Not only can he read, with excellent accent's, but he can sing!! As a whole I would rank it easily within my top ten and I own over 100 audio books.


    What other book might you compare The Darkling Thrush to and why?

    Hard to find something to compare it to that is an audio book but it has some of the same tone/feel as some of the victorian/steampunk I have read--although in no way is it steampunk. I suppose it caters to my love of traditional British detective novels but with an m/m relationship and lots of magic!


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

    This is the first I've listened to--I will be looking for more.


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

    Yes--but I made myself eek it out.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never read anything by Josh Lanyon that I didn't love. If he is able to keep up the quality of narration I will buy all of them in audio too!

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "hate the narrators voice"
    Overall

    I'm sorry. I think I'll have to check this out in print. I have tried to listen to the story -- and it sounds like it could be god but I HATE the narrators voice, I just cannot listen to her; she sounds whiny and it make my neck hairs stand up. Sorry, the star is for the voice not the story.
