    "Like it better than the first book"

    I actually liked this book as a lady gumshoe story than a urban fantasy. I really didn't see why Anna has to be a vampire in this book. She could have been a normal human being dealing with paranormal beings. I enjoyed this second story a lot better than the first book in the series. I hope Anna uses her full potential as a vampire in the next book.

    "The Story Is Worth The Listen"

    While the deadpan delivery of the narrator takes some getting used to, I think the story is worth listening to. Anna Strong is not the brightest fledgling vampire on the block and yet I am enjoying the story and will try book three as well.

    "Very disapointing"

    I was hoping the main character would be a bit more intelligent in this book than the previous one. But I could not get passed more than 3 and a half hours before I just quit listening to this book. The main character seems very witless, and seems to have no investigative skills for a bounty hunter. Also she doesn't think things through whats over then wonders why she has problems. She's overly secretive and not subtle about it, which causes her problems. She constantly lies to everyone she supposedly cares about and trusts no one except complete strangers. I would not recommend this series if you are looking for a intelligent story that you won't be spending half your time rolling your eyes asking "why are you doing that?"

    "Really Good Series"

    I'm really enjoying this series so far. This is the second book and I am happily going onto the third. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I find the narrator, Dina Pearlman, excellent for this series. She has a good smokey tone with a haunting delivery for action scenes that make them almost like a film in slow-motion---very effective and unusual. And it reminds me a bit of a Raymond Chandler-type of narration.

    As in the first book, I like the other characters including some very "good" smarmy villians! Also, lots of unexpected plot twists that I appreciate. The only one drawback is the same one as in the first book---what little sex there is, is so tame as to be dull.

    But I think Anna's vampire character is spot on because she's new to the vampire world and discovers she needs "training", so it stands to reason that she doesn't make all the right decisions at first. Besides, it makes her more human that the reader can relate to.

    Anyway, fun series that I certainly recommend.

    "needs a new narrator"

    as in book one, the story is good but narration is killing it, of course now i'm hooked to the storyline,I'll just have to bear it.....my advice, listen to the sample first see if you can take the tone of the narrator first..

    "narrator is awful"
    Would you listen to Blood Drive again? Why?

    Maybe, once I forget the plot line. The narration was so awful, it's distracting from the story. She doesn't sound like the character speaking, just someone reading the story, and not well at that.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator could have actually embodied and enlivened the less character.


    Any additional comments?

    The author makes the characters quite introspective, and explains too much using self talk of Anna's character rather than showing with her actions and dialogue. Please, please, replace the narrator so the remaining books aren't ruined for me.
