I am a white guy who was raised in S.C. and Mr. Massey has moved near the top of my favorite writers in this genre!! To read some of the write ups on his books make it sound like he writes only for Black people, not true at all. I look forward to his next release. I really enjoy this narrator, he's great. Enjoy!!
If the Description of this book stated that there were VAMPIRES... I WOULD NOT HAVE added this to my Collection (I have over 210 AudioBooks in my account here!) It is NOT Audible's fault, they are not in charge of making the Descriptions for any of these AudioBooks, (The Author/Publishers are responsible). So, make sure to read the reviews or see how members rate these books before you decide on adding a book to your collection. Massey, the author of this book has a great audiobook out, "The Other Brother", (Which I made a review on) That is why I failed to read the reviews on this book... I assumed the next book from this author would have been just as great as the first one I listened to.... Read those Reviews!!!
The book was obvious and a bit dopey, and the narrator seemed like he was reading a bit above his level. Aside from the few hilarious mispronounciations, this was definitely not entertaining enough to make it worthwhile.
I HAD NO CLUE THIS WAS ABOUT VAMPIRES. IF I HAD I WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN IT. IF YOU LIKE THIS TYPE OF BOOK THIS IS A VERY GOOD ONE. AS FOR ME I FEEL LIKE I WASTED MY CREDIT ON THIS ONE.
This was a fun way to spend some boring afternoons or nights. The story developed immediately and it takes you for a ride. The narrator was talented in going from one voice to the other, so you were never distracted from the story. I hope there will be a continuation of the hero in a sequel.
Love Horror and Sci-Fi. I enjoy historical romance
I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys a basic vampire tale. Although I'd have liked it better if the author would've given a more historical background.
I think this is the first book I've heard J.D. Jackson perform. His voice was engaging.
I think a tv series. Anthony Mackie as David Hunter; Idris Elba as his Father Richard. Stellar combination.
Yes. Great story. The author weaved the different characters and the plot together very well.
It kept my attention the whole way through. It hooked me from the first scene. It was a great story about a man searching for his father, and the theme of father/son relationships was echoed in two other sets of characters. It took me on a journey, and then surprised me at the very end, just when I had forgotten about David's search for his own father. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was good. I usually listen to Jackson's narrations at 1.25x speed which improves the pacing. He is really good at doing different characters.
Even though it was 18+ hours, I finished it faster than any other audiobook I've listened to so far.
It was a great story. Sometimes the dialogue of certain characters was distracting, and I laughed out loud at the ridiculousness of a vampire leaving a cassette tape player for David with a sticky note that said, "play me," but all in all it was really fun escapism. Since it was written last decade, I'm curious to see how Massey has since developed as a writer.
This book was actually a great read (Listen). I enjoyed it. It definetly kept me guessing and i do enjoy the author. Hope to read something else by him.
a good Stephen King book I read called
I haven't listen to one that I did not like. He has one smooth sexy voice that has a lot of strength to it.
Yes, Yes, Yes a very extreme reaction. I got to do a little of both really, I cried when his neighbors the Franklins died. Laughed at Poke and Deputy DoDo.
Keep them coming. I love your imagination Mr.Massey
This was a highly enjoyable listen. It's a thrilling tale of vampires loose in a small Southern town and ordinary people banding together to fight against very long odds. The narration could have been a bit more interesting and the relationship between the two main characters - David and Nia - was a bit too perfect. I hope that Brandon Massey continues to gain a wider audience that includes people from all cultures, he deserves it.
