Publisher's Summary

Recovering witch Garnet Lacey owns Wisconsin's premier occult bookstore. And a fringe benefit of the job is getting customers like Sebastian Von Traum - piercing brown eyes, a sexy accent, and a killer body. The only thing missing is an aura. Which means he's dead. And that means trouble - something Garnet's a sucker for....

    "Good"

    Along the lines of Molly Harpers books, not quite as humorous but still entertaining. It delves more deeply into pagan beliefs and magic. and less on the vampire side. the give and take between the two main characters is interesting, and the protagonist is definitely one you just want to end up dead, she does a good job of making him annoying.

    Amanda Ronconi, as always delivers a flawless performance and keeps you engaged and brings the characters to life.

    There are some sound flaws in the editing but not bad enough to avoid the book.

    "Not a bad story - excellent narration"

    Just finished this 1st book and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't rate it as amazing but definitely above average!
    Great narration from Amanda Ronconi as per usual. I enjoyed her accents in this one.
    There were a few technical glitches in part 1 which was a little frustrating and I had read other complaints of this in other reviews. It still didn't ruin it for me.
    I'm currently downloading the next two books as I think this should be a great series.

    "Narrator was the only good part"

    The narrator was great as usual, but I found the book almost boring and plotless - I finished it, but only barely. A very forgetable read, I won't be getting the others in the series.

    "I loved this book"

    I wasn't sure this book wouldn't be cheesy and overdone with Middle School appeal (witch clichés, vampire romance, and dumb magic spells to fix any situation). Hence I bought the book when it was on sale, and nearly forgot about it. Nearly 10 months passed before I decided to give it a try! What can I say? Now I'm hooked. It wasn't cliché or middle school at all, I found it delightful, intriguing, and entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone who likes adult friendly supernatural stories, especially those who like to read books in a series! Anyway, I can't want to start book 2 in this series!

    "Fun series"

    Good writing. Excellent narration. There are a few audio editing errors, as stated, but they are very brief and limited in location. They don't interfere with the story or leave gaps.

    I will read the rest of the series.

    Story
    "No moral compass"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was expecting a humorous PNR similar to Molly Harper. Instead of charming and funny, this story has an underlying meanness due to a lack of moral compass. I'm ok with sex and magic, but when I see references to "goddess of light" I also expect to see "an it harm none." This protagonist doesn't much care about harm or the consequences of her actions, as well as being TSTL. The combination is not entertaining. The 2 male leads are supposed to be charming, but one comes off as a sociopath and the other has a will of limp spaghetti and no compassion. There are no characters I feel any respect or liking for.

    The narration was good. There were about 3 spots of very bad technical quality right after the beginning of the second half.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tate Hallaway again?

    No.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Nice job. Good characterization, attractive accents.


    What character would you cut from Tall, Dark, and Dead?

    Did not like any of them. They have no heart.

    If you could sum up Tall, Dark, and Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Re-edited, funny, entertaning


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Sebastian


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

    The Witch,the Fangs and the Vatican... who will prevail???


    Any additional comments?

    Amanda Ronconi needs to do all books with accents. She is the master at it.

    "Good story!"

    I love the actual story and I enjoy all the characters except Garnet I even like her somewhat but she seemed confused and very judge mental she judged every one's character but her own and at times seemed very selfish, she was in a place of power on her own but let everyone around her either defend her or be hurt it just got on my nerves.

    "Confused"
    What would have made Tall, Dark, and Dead better?

    I loved the story overall but the downloaded version cut off - like running into a brick wall dead end. Literally in the middle of talking it ended. I loaded up the same book on my computer to listen and its a LITTLE longer but still dead ended. Very confused about thr book.
