So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash, and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse...except I'm attracted to them both.
Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon, and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.

"This fast, furious novel is a squirm-inducing treat." (Publishers Weekly)
I would recommend it to anyone who likes the
vamp/supernatural genre. I've listened to these several times. Don't know if they'll ever come out with a new book, though.
As far as vampire stories go, this one isn't very good. For chick porn, I'm sure it's excellent. The story is driven by predictable formulaic plot elements, and offers nothing new to the genre. The most unusual aspect of the story, from my standpoint, is that it was one of the only ones I've ever encountered that was far more interesting at the beginning than at the end - in fact, it's the first I've quit listening to when within 1.5 hours of the end.
This is the 1st book that I have listened/read by this author. Decent story, not profound but engaging. I agree with others who have commented about the annoying way the narrator voices some of the minor characters. Esp. Ziggy. very annoying. Other voices were not so bad, but that character was especially difficult to listen too. Also, if you listen to the second book, the voice of the "oracle" is hideous. But, it was short lived. I would recommend this series, even though I didn't enjoy the second book as much. Just realize it's not a profound piece, but as I indicated in the beginning of this review, book one of "the turning" was fairly engaging. Enjoy :)
I've read the other reviews and most are spot on about the narrator - every ancillary character is frankly cringe-worthy.
I feel like if I had read this in print it would have been better.
As for the claims of "porn" this book is pretty tame on that front.
I love vampire novel, so I jumped at the chance to purchase this audio book. It started out kind of slow. I actually turned it off after the first couple chapters. Out of lack of having anything else to do, I turned the audio book back on. I'm really happy I did. It got much better. These books are kind of a guilty pleasure for me. It's a decent vampire novel mixed with a crazy (in a good way) erotic scenes. I love the narrator!! She really defines each characters.
I quickly purchased the over two. I finished all 3 in about a week. I couldn't put them away.
