An exciting new novella set in the world of Pretty When She Dies...
Cassandra is a dhamphir - the offspring of a vampire and mortal woman - and a thief of occult relics. Aimee is a full-blood witch that is bound to a powerful vampire who traffics in the slavery of supernatural beings. Both are powerful, lonely, and trapped in the dangerous world of the vampires. When Cassandra steals a relic from Aimee’s vampire master, he targets her as his next acquisition. What he doesn’t realize is that a chance encounter between Cassandra and Aimee ignited a spark between them that they cannot deny.
To survive, the women must find a way to band together and fight against the ruthless evil that conspires to enslave them forever.

This is the first one of the "Pretty When She Dies" books that I have read. Therefore I don't take issue with the characters by comparison to the rest of the series, as others do.
Cassandra is an acquisition specialist (hired thief) and she is hired to acquire Aimee. I think it's a great premise and it's a quick and easy read. On a completely separate note, I think the cover art for this book is terrible. Those girls look like they're 10.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Was this an after thought to add more characters? I have listened to Book 1 and enjoyed it, I thought this listen would give me more background on their stories but there was barely a mention of the characters in book 1. If I were starting out the series with this listen, I would not continue on, much different than book 1. The narrator is the same, a little fast paced but I get used to it.
Enjoyable prequel. Vampires and witches oh my! I listened two this audiobook after listening to books one and two of series. I recommend listening to this series in just that order. However order you chose to listen, you really won't be disappointed.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
This is an ass kicking, full of super naturals, short story that's definitely worth the 1 credit, even if it is only 4 hours.
