Great book

It was a great book I read when I was younger and revisiting it was great.
My only complaint is that they don't do a package deal with them sense they are so short

just and overall fun book

lots of ups and downs, creating a real sense of attachment to the characters. Ralph Lister does a fantastic job voicing the characters and their implied emotions.

I can listen to Ralph read this series for years!

The book and the narrator were a perfect mix! I loved this series to begin with but with Ralph's tremendous storytelling, just made it even more perfect. Even more thrilling, even more emotional, and even more irresistible.

Flash to the past

It is just as I remembered but i wish the story was longer before switching to the next book. In the past 2-3 days I breezed through it.

fantastic continuation.

this was a great sequel, diving headfirst into the vampiric lifestyle and what it entails. a gratuitous ending leaves you with bittersweet cliffhanger.

This is not, by any consideration, a "full review".

Life and death do not fare much better than this series has begun. It has been such a fun series to begin reading that it is with great delight that I anticipate beginning the next installment.

Narrator Ralph Lister could not have done a better job.

Great characters, enticing story and moorish.
Brilliant writing style that gives a real affinity for the characters.
