    Story
    "Bound by Night, but not by editing."

    This was an okay listen, not good nor really bad. The lead male character was a definite plus and the lead female was likeable - at least at first - but the whole story dragged on and was all over the place. Also, the author spent way too much time in the land of cliche.
    This book didn't know WHAT it wanted to be: murder-mystery, political intrigue, family dynamics - it covered them all, and all under the umbrella of vampire romance. Going back and forth between plot lines, and in and out of character back-stories, it ended up a braided mess, no smooth movement, and not even a real climax. As the story moved on, I lost way too much interest in Elena, was predicting too many of the plot "twists," and was underwhelmed by the abuse of cliches.
    EDITING was sorely missing, and the publishers did neither the author nor the story any favors. This is the first book that's probably better ABRIDGED.

    "Very lackluster..."

    I've read a lot of Amanda Ashley books over the years, and really enjoyed them. But this book just fails to deliver. The story is okay, but I wouldn't waste your time if you have another choice.

    For one, the story keeps wandering, from the issue of Elena and her uncle, to that of Drake and the vampires, and Drake and Elena. Then the author keeps adding little sub plots, such as Andre and Katya, and Stefan, and Elena & Verdine.

    But there seems to be a lack of emotion in all of this, even though the author tells you Elena is upset, you watch Drake in pain, etc. It's just too bland. The reader doesn't help, but the story itself brings down the performance.

    If you want to continue enjoying Amanda Ashley's books, don't listen to this one.

    "Good story of love conquering all!!!"

    This story is a very good story it started off a little slow and the voice was kind of relaxing and was putting me to sleep, the narrator makes a big difference in a story but after the first part of the story the story and the narrator kicked it up and the story and ending was very good.
