I was very interested in a vampire story that wasn't the same ilk as The Twilight Saga. This story is fairly good. I liked the use of historic referen..Show More »ces, of religious activities (pretty much go hand in hand with vampire stories), and the characters were not nearly as shallow as I thought they might be for an action/horror story.
The narrator however, made it hard to me to enjoy. I'm tempted to get the paper or e-book and read it for myself. Her whispery voice was distracting and annoying. The accents were the worst I've heard in a while. What is the problem with getting someone who really knows what a south Louisiana accent sounds like? It isn't the stereotypical southern accent. And this woman's southern accent made me think she was channeling Paula Dean. It was high-pitched and didn't match the content of the dialogs for the character. Her British accent was passable. The Dutch accent sounded just like the British. The pronunciation of Spanish words was a mixed bag: sometimes good, mostly poor.
