    "It was a great book!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It's a great listen altogether. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. The one thing I don't like is that AUDIBLE ONLY HAS BOOK ONE! There are 5 books or more in this series! The only thing I don't like is tI at Audible gives us the first in the series and none of the rest. I would have really liked to move seamlessly to the following books :( lol


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It's not that kind of book but I do enjoy these fun kind of paranormal books :)


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    You can tell that the author is a bit new in the first book but it's written very well anyways. I'm sure the author will just keep on improving too!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I actually liked the narrator and that is really saying something because I'm very very picky about narrators. I enjoyed this narrator even though the voices she has sound somewhat similar at times. I also think she can improve too. I hope she narrates the future books.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Worth a credit for sure. There's a world where "otherworldly" creatures (vamps, witches, werewolfs and some hybrids) live amongst humans. Theres romance, the paranormal, great characters and it's just a really great book. I might have to just buy book 2 on my Kindle :)

    "I couldn't put it down"

    I was surprised that this book was so good. The world that Stephanie Nelson created was unique and believable. The characters were well developed and realistic. The pace was fast and engaging. I haven't liked a new series this much in a while. I highly recommend this book.

    "Good Book, but like other books"
    If you could sum up Craved in three words, what would they be?

    Good YA Book


    Any additional comments?

    I think the only problem with this is she should have been bonded to her boy friend not the bad vampire. If she fed her boy friend to save another witch and then goes to get help with addiction and has to suck his blood , she should have bonded with him. There are certain aspects if you are paying attention that should not be.
