Publisher's Summary

Librarian. Assassin. Vampire.

Amber Fang enjoys life's simple pleasures - a good book, a glass of wine and, of course, a great meal.

Raised to eat ethically, Amber dines only on delicious, cold-blooded killers. But being sure they're actually killers takes time...research...patience.

It's a good thing Amber's a librarian. Her extraordinary skills help her hunt down her prey, seek out other vampires, and stay on the trail of her mother, missing now for two years. One day she stalks a rather tasty-looking murderer and things get messy. Very messy. Amber, the hunter, becomes the hunted.

And then, from out of nowhere, the perfect job offer: Assassin. She'd be paid to eat the world's worst butchers. How ideal.

Until it isn't.

Amber Fang is the first book in a new action and adventure vampire series by best-selling author Arthur Slade.

Produced by Edgar Lloyd and narrated by new sensation Amber Dawn.

    "New spin on old vampire mythology ."
    Any additional comments?

    This is an enjoyable listen. There are new and varied elements to the vampire mythology . I really like the character of Amber and it was fun to follow her struggles as the story progressed. All of the secrets that we find out about made the story more enjoyable. I am looking forward to the next installment.I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

    "3.5* - narration detracts from audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my first experience with this author and I was pleasantly surprised. There were only two instances of the book where the heroine behaved in a way that didn't fit with my mental image of her character (in a class and in Iceland). But otherwise, I found her to be a very appealing protagonist. The writing was witty and the characters were all likeable. For the first book in the series, the book ended at a good transition point.

    Now it's time to get on my soapbox about narration. I've been teaching female grad students at a post-secondary education institution for years, and I've never had a student who sounded like Amber. I was once a grad student in my early/mid '20s (many years ago) and I never came across anyone in my class who sounded like that either. The narrator voiced a teenager character, someone you might find in a high school drama class. I don't mean to hammer on the narrator, but if this is her range and her vocal style, then I think a better fit for her would be narrating stories intended for younger audiences. She's certainly enthusiastic, that's for sure!

    So, because I didn't find the narration compelling and I did find the story compelling, I set my playback speed to 2x so I could find out what happened in the story. I wouldn't have finished the audiobook if I played it at regular speed. I'd definitely, definitely read the next story in this series. I definitely would not listen to the next story in this series with this narrator; in my opinion, she's a good children's book narrator, but she's not Amber Fang.

    I provided my opinion in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Amber Fang"

    Given the tag line Librarian Assassin Vampire I couldn't resist. Unfortunately it turns out that those three things together aren't for me. The story was fun and I enjoyed the campyness of it but from time to time the dialogue just didn't work for me.

    My biggest complaint was the narration. I felt Amber did great for Amber. Her voice fit Amber's personality perfectly. Couldn't deal with her voice for any of the male characters, especially Martin. Dermot just seemed like a fool with the voice she used and Martin's voice caused me to cringe, sounded like Aughra from the Dark Crystal, kept waiting to hear him say Gelfling.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Entertaining & fun"

    I enjoyed the unique twist on this vampiric tale. the fact that this vampire was actually given birth to. Puts it into an entirely new realm.
    Naration was OK just a little too long of pause between sentences. For me she wasn't quite smooth enough.
    Saying that I will purchase the next book in this series both Audible and Kindle versions, when they become available.

    "Fangtastically Fun & Adventurous!!!!"

    Amber Fang was such a fun book to listen to. The Narrator was great and I am very picky when it comes to narrator's. Amber has trust issues and due to her young age and the fact that she basically has been on her own for most of her life she makes some very quick and not very smart decisions which land her in sticky situations. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to book #2

    "Frustrated"

    I love the story of Amber Fang and was looking forward to it being an audiobook. 😜 I was very disappointed by the performer. She spoke to fast and without emotional tones. Amber is a thoughtful young woman with that undertone of predator. The actress didn't portray that at all.

    Story
    "An Intriguing Start "
    What did you love best about Amber Fang?

    I enjoyed the story, so far. It is a great start; I care about Amber and what the author has in store for her.


    What about Amber Dawn’s performance did you like?

    She sounds young and I like the fact that her French pronunciations match her character, but they still grated a little and she does sound very young for her character. I think I would have a different idea of the character's age/maturity, if I had the text myself.


    If you could take any character from Amber Fang out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Amber's mother, I hope we will meet her,

    Story
    "Interesting take on Vampires"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. The story was truly good, but not so much the narrator. I had a very difficult time with the narrator Amber Dawn as she sounded like an older school teacher reading a potentially frightening story to a bunch of kids that she was trying not to upset.


    What other book might you compare Amber Fang to and why?

    Difficult to say in Arthur Slade's take on vampires. Similar take on the monthly feedings of other novels, but his vampires have issues with overeating and the effect of not eating at all is a nice twist.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amber Dawn’s performances?

    I have listened to her on Arthur Slade's audiobook of short stories and it wasn't much better. She is not horrible by any means, but I don't think she is suited for anything with a more serious undertone like a thriller or horror story.


    Was Amber Fang worth the listening time?

    Yes, overall I think it was worth it because it was a very good story.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story so much I went back and read it after listening to it. I wanted to hear the story for myself to see if it is as good as I believed it to be. It was! I truly enjoyed the story and will continue to read any Amber Fang stories that may follow. If another narrator is selected I may listen to them as well.
