Wanted: Undead or Alive

Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents - evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him... if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.

Publisher's Summary

He's a vampire from the big city....

Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents - evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him... if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.

She's a werewolf princess...

Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens... and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.

    "finally, Phinneas' story!"

    I have loved reading and listening to this series from the beginning, and was so excited to hear that we were going to get The Love Doctor's story! I will be getting it from the library TO READ myself- because P.J.Ochlan is one of the most boring audible readers I have ever listened to. Phin grew up in the Bronx- had a tough childhood, got in trouble with the law, and was unwillingly changed to a vampire- he has a life's story- and this reader is about as vanillla and undimensional as a reader can get. When I read the book myself, I'm sure I will enjoy it immensely, but listening to it is quite the drag. Keep up the good work Ms Sparks, but please vet your readers better.

    "Narrators? Please!!!"

    I loved this series. But, I really prefer a series to at least have the majority of the books narrated be the same person. I know it's hard to have the same narrator for an entire series, but I would have enjoyed the listening experience more if the same narrator had read all of them.

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    Story
    "ONE OF THE VERY BEST!!"
    If you could sum up Wanted: Undead or Alive in three words, what would they be?

    This story has humor in the way that the "Love Doctor" pulls his little brother into McKay Security International. Adventure with Bryn when she tries to see her sister and it has a hook at the end with its unusual ending.


    What other book might you compare Wanted: Undead or Alive to and why?

    The closest book I can compare this to is the "Prey Eat Love". Both books show the angst in complicated relationshiips.


    Have you listened to any of P. J. Ochlan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't listened to P. J. Ochlan before but I look forward to listening to him again. He really brings the characters to life with his shadings and voice inflextions.


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

    DON'T CRY WOLF . . TO A VAMPIRE!

    "Extremely Funny!"

    This was by far the funniest in the series. I did not stop laughing. buy this book if you like comedy. The narrator did a fantastic job with the different voices. My favorite character was Digger

    "Great Read but........"
    If you could sum up Wanted: Undead or Alive in three words, what would they be?

    I have read or listened to all previous books in this series and was really ecited about this one, however, Phin was said to be a Black man in the previous books and it seems that kind of changed in this one. I'd like to think that Phin evolved from his streetlike persona into a more refined young man instead of thinking the author decided to change the character's persona all together. But all in all it was a good book that continued to follow its predecessors. I look forward to the next installment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It refers back to previous book stories


    What about P. J. Ochlan’s performance did you like?

    Since I have a favorite narrator..it is hard for anyone else to match up. This one was good.


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

    Anything I listen to I feel like that so yes to this one too.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next book. Holter Graham is a great narrator.

    "Good story lame narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wanted: Undead or Alive to be better than the print version?

    No!!! The narrator doesn't seem to understand the characters.


    What other book might you compare Wanted: Undead or Alive to and why?

    The story is similar to the other books in the series generally.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I am not a professional actor, but it seems that the narrator would have been well served to read the previous books in the series in order to get a better feel for Phineas, his history feelings and such.


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


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "Alright"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The person who does rhe narrating is horrible, Dr Fang is not portrayed like he was in the other books


    What other book might you compare Wanted: Undead or Alive to and why?

    None


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He made Dr Fang sound boring


    Do you think Wanted: Undead or Alive needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not if it has the same guy reading


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that it could have been someone better reading the book
