Publisher's Summary

Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black's been catching her z's in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette.

But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman - dead or alive. Rich, powerful, and drop-dead gorgeous, Victor's the perfect man for a novice neck-biter like Elvi. He's willing to teach her everything he knows, but he'll have to do it fast. Someone's out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe - and satisfied - for all eternity.

Love in vein: listen to more tales of the Argeneau Vampires.

    Story
    "Annoying narrator"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator with animation and the ability to do a decent accent.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story line of Evie becoming a vampire by accident was pretty clever. The impromptu shopping trips when she realizes she has been suffering needlessly are very entertaining and funny.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I do NOT like Victoria McGee's narrating. I listen to her because I enjoy this series, but I wish the publisher/author/promoter would STOP asking her to narrate. She is boring. Her voices for men and accents are not good and she has no enthusiasm or animation in her voice.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Accidental Vampire?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Stop hiring Victoria McGee.

    Story
    "My favorite of the series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because it makes me laugh! I can imagine reacting to some of the things that happen to Elvie in the exact same way.


    What other book might you compare The Accidental Vampire to and why?

    "Agnes and the Hitman" by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer, because both main characters get themselves into such interesting situations.


    Which character – as performed by Victoria McGee – was your favorite?

    Elvie


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "Sands knows her humorous Vamps!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Accidental Vampire to be better than the print version?

    I love Lynsay Sands Argeneau series - this is one of my favorites. Another one is the Single White Vampire - OMG - I laughed so hard while listening to both of these I cried.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ELVI was my favorite - her character was so serious about the vampire role and she took the truth with a grain of salt - you can't but help fall in love.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not your typical vampire saga.

    "Ok."

    This book was ok from this series. I just think it was a little outrageous with the whole town protecting a vamp, but it works since Sands explains the closeness of the town’s relationship with the main female character

    "Not finished"

    It ends without finishing. There should be 3 parts not 2. The ending of the book is left off. It is horrible.

    "Last Chapter missing"

    I enjoy all of Lynsay Sands books. They make me laugh. However I can not recommend this one because the last chapter is missing. Victor was just about to talk with his brother, the head of the Vampire Council when it ended. I have notified audible.com and hopefully they will be able to find the missing chapter and add it to Part 2.

    "The Accidental Vampire"

    The last chapter of the book is missing, so it has no finish. I wrote Audible about this and they said they were "checking". Hopefully they will be able to get this fixed. Otherwise the book is great.
