    "wonderful narration"

    It was like listening to a play. This narrator is a real story teller. The book is just up my street; mystery, magic, paranormal mixed in to the present day.

    "Great Book, Narrator leaves MUCH to be desired."

    Started reading the hardcover before I saw this audio version. I love this series by Due and this book is a great continuation of The Living Blood. The narrator's reading, however, is extremely distracting. Poor pacing and timing with way too many long pauses in the narration. Although the main character is an adolescent I don't think the book should be read like a young adult novel. Going to have to go back to the hardcover and "re-read."

    "I agree"

    This was a waste of time and money. The book itself may have been good, but there was no way to know. The narrator's style made it nearly impossible to follow the storyline.

    She pauses after every three or four words and her sentnences run together. She does fairly well with accents, though, but it was not enough to overcome her tempo/style.

    Her voice is pitched neither too high nor too low, so she would be pleasant to listen to if she can overcome the manner in which she reads.

    I am not overly picky. If I write something negative, it is unusual.

    "Wasted credit."

    I started listening to this book on a plane and promptly fell asleep. I tried to listen again, forcing myself through part 1 and finally gave up. The narrator might have a lot to do with my dislike of this book, maybe if I actually read it myself...who knows. I love this type of book, I just don't like this one. The character names, the voice, the prose is just irritating to me.

    "Fair"

    This book was fair. It wasn't as good as the first two in the series, but not terrible.
