Great narration.

Best thing about the book, for me anyway was the narration! S.W. Salzman did a great job with this, and because of the amount of different characters and the fact he made each one sound different, was really impressive. His narration was the only reason I plowed through this book because otherwise it would have been a DNF.

This book was a hard one to rate because while there was a few things I liked, I didn't like the book overall. I found the writing to be very repetitive and I really didn't connect to any of the characters! The main thing I liked about it was how Vampires and Werewolves came about. It was a unique take on the lore, I just wished it was executed a little different. I don't like giving a negative review so all I'll say is, I mightn't have liked it, but give it a go anyway, you may love it :)

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

Damn great listen

Mike Evans has nailed it out of the park.
I usually listen to books at night before i sleep. i was up for four hours the first night. I couldn't turn it off because I needed to know what was coming next. I loved it.

Good versus Evil

I would have given the book a 5 but really do not like the time period (Kings and Queens). I enjoyed the concept involving the werewolves and vampires, good and evil. The narrator saved the day for me. Really liked the Orphans by Mike Evans. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com. Thank you!

Different take on common story

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in return for an honest review.

The story is an interesting variant from the common storyline. I found it interesting to see the direction it took.

The narrator has an awesome voice but his narration could have served to draw the listener in more completely if it had been less formal and more relaxed. Unfortunately this detracts from the overall presentation. Hopefully that can be improved for book two in the series.

Deal with the Devil book 1

The main reason I listened to this book was because S.W. Salzman was the narrator. Salzman's voice is always so clear and smooth. He really gives life to characters in the books he reads. The book itself was ok. It is a new twist on an old tale of how vampires and werewolves came to be and it has a lot of feeling in it.

Vamps vs Weres? Yes please!

Sort of a different take on Good vs. Evil, especially with the medieval, supernatural aspect. Looking forward to the rest of the series in audio, as Salzman again proved worthy of one of my favorite authors. I binge-listened all day!

A dark vampire tale

I really liked this dark and sinister twist to the vampire tale, it was different and unique, and kept me captivated to the end. I can't wait to see if there's going to be another book, S. W. Salzman's narration was wonderful as always. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
