Publisher's Summary

Larsa is a dhampir - half vampire, half human. In the gritty streets and haunted moors of gothic Ustalav, she's an agent for the royal spymaster, keeping peace between the capital's secret vampire population and its huddled human masses. Yet when a noblewoman's entire house is massacred by vampiric invaders, Larsa is drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse that will reveal far more about her own heritage than she ever wanted to know.

    "It is alright"

    This is probably one of those instances where READING the story would have been preferable to LISTENING to it. The chapters alternate between perspectives of 2 characters, both female, and the narrator has difficulty creating a distinctive difference between the two voices.

    It took about 20 chapters before I could discern the slight vocal patterns apart for Jidane and Larsa. At points in the story whee there is a great deal of dialogue between these characters it can become confusing as to who says and believes what.

    The story itself is alright, but a little predictable and the threat never seems to build up to anything worrisome. Some good characterizations and some of the secondary characters are quite appealing but the bulk of the story felt cumbersome rather than engaging.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    Story
    "not what summary indicated!"

    I sometimes wonder who writes summaries for books. Well in this case summary is only partially correct. The book about 2 separate individuals. They come together due to incident described and become travel companions. The Dhampir and a priestess. The priestess is from an order that completely and utterly hates vampires and their like. The book is written with chapters alternating from their points of view of events and happenings. On the surface it has great potential. But things keep repeating. Ilyana Kadushin performance improves as the book progresses. In the beginning it is hard to keep the two main characters straight going by voice alone. I found myself going back to chapter beginnings to see who's chapter it was. The book is predictable. In earlier chapters there was enough of surrounding differences to maintain interest. I had to stop listening to the book. It became too tedious and boring. Also, the predictability became too predictable.
