Angelus Salvatore is the only necromancer in all of Boston, and his name is whispered warily by the undead and fellow sorcerers alike. He and his brother Isaac are the lone survivors of an attack by an army of the undead, in which Angel used a spell so powerful it forever marked his place in history. Now, years later, Angel struggles to balance his career as a teacher of the higher magical arts, his role as big brother, and a tenuous relationship with an Elder vampire from the local clan.

This book was really several stories in one some clearly a twist on existing fairy tales and others all their own fairy tale. They were cute and sweet and perfect for the mood I was in!
The narration is what really made these stories worthwhile! Joel Leslie did a phenomenal job changing the voice of each story to fit the characters and make each tale unique. He is a truly talented narrator.
Overall a really enjoyable experience!

William Drake’s living an ordinary life - he has a job, a dog, and a house near Lake Superior - when a frantic call for help from his ne'er-do-well sister, Katrina, throws a big rancher-shaped kink in the works. Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, Will’s arrival at the Montana ranch belonging to Katrina's fiancé, Martin, is marked by a flat tire and unexpected help from a tall, dark, and handsome Good Samaritan. The stranger turns out to be Elijah Hunter, Martin's brother - the most unsettling man Will has ever met.

I read this book way back when and it was an enjoyable read to just sort of escape and suspend belief a bit. Cute and fun. So I figured I would try the audio.
I couldn't make it halfway. Monotone, no character inflection and the way the narrator pronounced "asked" and "ask" was supremely irritating.
