Publisher's Summary

They killed my sister and infected me.

Now I have to pick up the pieces before I die.

I've spent the last five months trying to find the bastard who did this. Yet, even with the help of a hot amnesiac vampire named Jude, I've had zero luck.

Until now. And it could change everything. Even though I grew up in a family that hunted the supernatural, there were still things I didn't believe in.

Now I have to hurry for the slim chance that I could save us all. Because when you fight against immortal vampires, you're the one who's running out of time.

    Story
    "Great Paranormal Romance"

    One of my favorite genre's is paranormal romance. This story drew me in and I had a hard time putting it down. The story was unique and nothing like the typical vampire story.

    Edie is a descendent from a line of vampire hunters known as the "Harker". After her sister's death, Edie has to take her place as the Harker.
    She is out for revenge to kill the Vampire that killed her sister and infected her. She only has a short time to live and time is running out for her.

    Her cousin Carl and Jude are helping her find information she needs. Jude is an unusual vampire that has lost his memory but has strong feelings for Edie. He will do anything to protect her.

    The story is well written and I always understood what was going on. There is magic, violence, suspense, drama, romance, and betrayal. I was shocked with the twist at the end. It was not a predictable one and caught me by surprise. It ends with a Cliffhanger that leaves you craving more. I can't wait to read book 2.

    Kristin James did an awesome job reading this book. I'll be looking into some more of the stories she has read. Great performance.

    I'll be looking out for more books written by Erin Hayes as well. She has created a great world in "Dammned If I Do" and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

    Story
    "What's a Harper?"
    Any additional comments?

    ( A FEW SPOILERS) ok, this is again, one of those books wrote like your audience is 12. The Harper's, a long line of supernatural killers from centuries past. The oldest daughter in the Harper family receives magical strength, a cool sword that magically comes out of her wrist and the skills to fight an army. Right from the beginning we play stupid with the intelligent reader. The two Harper sisters are shopping for Christmas, they know the boogie men come out at dark, yet they are walking to their car like it's broad day light. suddenly they are attacked by 8-10 vampires, the oldest sister, the chosen one is kicking butt and taking names but the younger, but adult sister is cowering behind her car door. (by the way being a Harper even though not chosen does have some weak powers) The girls is so petrified she can't come up with a spell in her head to help her sister so she just watches. She is in so much fear she can't move while her older sitter is fighting for their lives. Then the vampire in charge tells the chosen one, give up or your sister dies. And what does the famous Harper do without a further fight? Let's the vampires tear her apart from her neck down to her abdomen and yes it was made graphic, and the little sister gets chewed on and mixing her blood with vampire blood is going to having her dying a painful death. So she basically has 6 months to find her sisters killer or she won't be able to rest after dying. And she is so dang dumb at it, it's not even funny. She and her sister has been training their whole lives for this but yet she never thought she would ever become "The Harper" THE END Don't bother if you have intelligence I only listened to the second to book to find out what happens to Jude the just as stupid vampire that is in love with her.

    "So bad."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Though I don't believe this was intended to be YA, I believe, in terms of sophistication, it more suitable for young listeners. The writing struck me as incredibly immature, and generally lacking depth.


    Has Damned If I Do turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No way!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kristin James’s performances?

    Probably not. Her voice wasn't especially nice to listen to, and her voice for the male character was truly dreadful.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Eye-rolls. Lots of eye-rolls.

    "Well done!"

    urban-fantasy, ghosts, vampire, vampire-slayers, romance, action-adventure, suspense, magic

    Suspenseful and with lots of action, this book gives a rather different slant on the whole vampire scene and the role of the Harker family. The writing is absorbing and the characters are engaging. It really caught me and kept me reading when I should have been taking care of other things. No sense in giving a synopsis when the publisher's blurb takes care of that. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
    Kristin James has a real talent for giving the characters definition and life.
    This came as Whispersync on the cheap.

    Story
    "Damned if you do!"

    Narration - Kristin James - pretty good! Good storyteller, good character differentiation.

    The story involves a vampire hunter who is on the hunt of her life - literally. She's been bit by a nasty vampire and given a virus that is slowly spreading and killing her. She gets help from her cousin, a vampire with amnesia, a witch of an aunt, some family from beyond and a smattering of other interesting characters.

    The whole story is really a mystery and you'll find yourself proposing theories about who is what and what on earth will happen next and what certain warnings mean. Oh, and I Loved her little niece!

    I was a little disappointed with the Scooby Doo type reveal towards the end, I personally like for there to be a little more of a complicated revealing or dissection of 'the bad guys' vs them just spewing all their own evil deeds, but, what ya gonna do!

    Other than that, I really enjoyed the story and would definitely continue the series.

    I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

    "Easy summer beach read"
    Where does Damned If I Do rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its in the middle of a crowded pack as far as other audiobooks I've listened to, I've listened to hundreds....I used to listen to books on tape as a kid, then books on CD etc before audible was created.


    Would you recommend Damned If I Do to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to friends who like paranormal/paranormal romance genres. I liked the Harker aspect, very cool that the power passed down generations and if something happens to Edie it will pass to her 3 year old niece, scary, I can’t imagine a 3 year old with that kind of power. Edie's cousin, Carl, was one of my favorite characters and I would definitely read a standalone book about him. Jude was okay to me, I didn’t really connect on the Jude and Edie love story deal, it was secondary to the story for me.


    Have you listened to any of Kristin James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Kristin James's narration, she is amaaazing! I like her accents and her voice is so nice to listen to.

    "A fast paced and dangerous world"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Damned If I Do is so different and original. The idea of a vampire hunter becoming infected with a deadly virus from the very creatures she hunts but then relying on them brings an interesting dynamic to a great book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Damned If I Do?

    I enjoyed having this story written from different character’s POV It really works with developing the story.


    Have you listened to any of Kristin James’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Really good narration which gives pace to the story and depth to the characters. A great story matched with great narration.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt excited and entertained because there is a lot of action and adventure. Edie is kick-ass.
