    "A compelling read!"

    This was a great read/listen. Lissa Beth Workman is a dumpy, sobbing drunk in a local bar when two vampire walk in and take an interest. They make a wager and proceed to turn her just so they can time the turn. Then they planned to make her dead dead.

    What happens next makes for one action packed adventure that takes place all over the supernatural world.

    Could. Not. Put. It. Down.

    Don't miss this one. Can't wait for more.

    "A nice Surprise"

    I saw this on sale and thought I would give it a chance. I found myself rapped up in the heroin's story... now I'm hooked. I hope they release the rest of the Blood Destiny series on audible.

    "Great read!!!"
    What did you love best about Blood Wager?

    It read like real people and I liked the sort of feeling like you were reading a journal.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lissa. Main character because she was likable even tho she is in not perfect. She is real and trying to figure out her way in this world.


    What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?

    Real voices. Not snotty better than everyone voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it. I was sad to see that this is currently the only one at audible. I want to listen to more of her books.

    "Love the Series.Please do the rest!! Good Narrator"
    Would you listen to Blood Wager again? Why?

    I already read the series over and over again. If they keep the same narrator, I'll purchase them all. I'll purchase them anyway.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heroine, and the storyline. Connie Suttle has the history for her characters down pat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lissa was helping Weldon, the Grand Master, when he was being attacked.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Blood Destiny, which is the name of the series


    Any additional comments?

    Please Audible do the whole series?
    P.S. and the connecting series': Legend of the Ir'Indicti, High Demon, The God Wars,and Saa Thalarr.

    Story
    "Very good start A great and unexpected lead."
    What did you love best about Blood Wager?

    The unexpected lead character they ran across. Lissa was warm but a no nonsense woman that was a lot older and further along in her human life when she was turned. It made her more set in her ways and older in her thinking towards life. and her husbands death gave her the opinion about death that most people try to avoid.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Wager?

    There were a few. but I liked the actual saving of the master were wolf in the pact.


    Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favorite?

    LIssa.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When the assassin brought her in to the counsel. He was an ass.


    Any additional comments?

    Just can't wait for the next installment.

    "Tomuch Nothing BS"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Cut the bla bla filler out & get to the story. The story was ok, but it was to thin & full of nothing BS. Every thing was over described. Who really cares if she needs shoes & pants.

    Story
    "Poorly Written With Amateurish Narration"
    What disappointed you about Blood Wager?

    Almost everything about the book disappointed me, especially given the raving reviews of other Audible members.


    Has Blood Wager turned you off from other books in this genre?

    While the book hasn't turned me off the genre, it has finalized my distrust of Audible recommendations.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrators accents were truly painfully to read. If she had stayed with the Oklahoman/Texan accent, narration would have been fine.


    Any additional comments?

    The book isn't awful for a self published and unedited work but it belongs in the realm of the internet and not available for purchase. The story desperately needs copy-editing.

    "Not bad..."

    Not a bad vampire story, though it wasn't super original. I enjoyed most of the 9 odd hours it took to listen. The character is strong and likeable, almost to the point of being a Mary Sue.

    The writing is alright, though the author has a tendency to really repeat herself, lots of redundant explaining, unnecessary reiterating, and the jokes/sarcasm aren't nearly as funny as she (the main character, or author) thinks they are. She can really beat a one liner to death, let me tell you.

    The narrator is ok. A good female voice for the main character, though honestly her voices for the other characters are pretty atrocious at times.

    I would continue the series maybe if the rest went on sale, like this was in the "hidden gem" sale, but I probably wouldn't spend a credit on it.

    Would you listen to Blood Wager again? Why?

    I will be listening to this book again - when subsequent books come out and just for a good listen.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lissa's anger and fear when captured and her distress when she finds out who betrayed her


    Any additional comments?

    The writing is clumsy at time but if you can see past that the story is original and well worth a listen
