    "Even Amanda couldn't save this much"

    Amanda Ronconi is a fantastic narrator. She brings each book she reads literally to life. If it wasn't for her, I'd have tossed this away within the first couple of chapters.

    The book had some flashes of brilliance, some fleeting moments of entertainment, overall I couldn't wait for it to finish. Finish it I did, I wanted to finish the story, there was some curiosity about how it would progress, so I guess it was a sale price well spent for the few hours it occupied my mind. Unfortunately I kept expecting Molly Harperesque brilliance which just does not exist in this story.

    Get it if it's on sale, otherwise not worth a credit.

    "I really wanted to like this series..."

    I'm a fan of paranormal stories and even paranormal romance stories, but I really just couldn't stand Garnet Lacey. She is a stupid, shallow woman who plots to get in a mans pants from the moment she sees him, sleeps with him immediately and decides the man is her "boyfriend" after a single night together. The whole thing screams "Hello I'm desperate and stupid" and I just need a far better story line in order to keep my interest. I've wasted my time on three of these books since they were recommended to my due to my "taste preferences" and I don't think I'll be trying any more of them.

    "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.

    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.

    "A little to dark for my taste"

    I really like light hearted paranormal romance. I love anything Molly Harper. This is super dark not funny at all just dark. Not for me at all. Amanda ronconi is amazing as ever.

    "It was ok."
    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she's a consistently awesome narrator. Always does a great job with unique voices.


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

    No and I think that's the problem. The book was just OK. Not very special, not horrible. I didn't hate it and I didn't love it.

    "a good listen."

    I really enjoy listening to amanda ronconi telling stories. She is funny and silly and she really brings life to a story. This book was entertaining and enjoyable. There were some editing issues that were very obvious but it was brief and not a big deal. The story doesn't have a great deal of action its not really edge of your seat but still i enjoyed it.

    "Looking forward to reading more"

    Amanda Ronconi narration is good as always. The author was not know to me before but figured it would be good with a predictibly good narration and I was right. The story was fun and I enjoyed it. Can't wait to read more of this story line.
