Publisher's Summary

All Sophia Fontanelle wanted was to be left alone. On the run from New Orleans and its vampire council, she heads to Los Angeles to start a new life. But when The Caballero, the ancient peacekeeper rumored to be the great Zorro himself, is murdered, Sophia finds herself caught up in a fight to clear her name. Threatened by a 1950s-era gangster turned vamp by the Caballero himself, can she survive in Vamp City?

“Vampire noir in L.A. by way of New Orleans, with progressive creatures of the night trying to solve a twisted murder mystery. Sophia is a powerful lead fighting to clear her name in C.D. Brown’s compelling debut.” (Alan Baxter, author of Hidden City and the Alex Caine series)

Thank You Mr. Brown for THIS 🌠🌠🌠🌠❕

I just about live for reading/ listening to Fictional Novels. My specific tastes can be broad at times yet I believe my inner child must be quite the dominant force for when it comes down to choosing my Genre of choice I will spend a ridiculous amount of time and effort on Audible.com combing through all the different sub-genre's trying DESPERATELY to find a descent Vampire read...
With a big smile on my face, I was able to just listen to an excellent Novel

🌟P.S.
NOTE TO THE AUTHOR:
I am hoping , no begging, please let this be JUST THE BEGINNING OF A SERIES!!! Also PLEASE write THE next FEW SUPER DUPER Fast! and pretty please one ☝more thing Can you please Utilize the talented Veronica Giguere again, she is such an amazing Narrator!

All the Best to all my fellow 📚 💗's ,

Sue

What's not to love

I absolutely love vampire fantasy novels and this one was great but the one thing I really did not like was the background noise and I dont know who is responsible for it but when I researched the narrator I found that other audiobooks that she was recorded in all had the same issue. Other than that I most definitely would reccomend this book .

Vampire gang turf wars

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I enjoyed the audio narration, the voices and accents were good and I liked the quality of the narrator's voice, especially for the main character. The plot itself was just ok. Lots of LA Vamp gang wars. Lots of battles. But, it was choppy and not engaging. Also, the random flashbacks came out of nowhere and were not transitioned well. Overall, just an OK read.

WOW!!

This was a very exciting story! I loved the storyline and all of the characters. Their struggle to work together despite their differences in opinions. This was a good prevails against evil story if I've ever found one :) I would recommend!

There Is A New Vamp In Town

This is not your typical vampire story. It seemed more like a mystery/suspense tale than classic vampire. It is vampires trying to be good with the help of a support group similar to AA. There is some violence and fighting, but that is almost incidental to the plot. If it is total carnage you are looking for in a vampire book look elsewhere.

I really quite liked this book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an interesting and well done vampire story. It has a unique take on the vampire legend and a good storyline. The narration is well done, too. All in all, I rather quite enjoyed this book and would be open to more in the series (assuming it becomes one).

Decent

Story and plot are well thought out. Interesting urban setting. For me it really comes down to narration. The performance didn’t do enough to sell the story for me. More reflection through the dialogue was needed.

Did not connect with the characters

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love books which involve the paranormal -- vampires, werewolves, ghosts, wizards, etc. So, I was really looking forward to this book. Unfortunately, I found that I did not empathize with any of the characters -- I found them uninteresting and just didn't care about them at all. I found the story moved very slowly. There were little asides that I loved in this book -- for example, Sophia -- the main character -- is a vampire and cannot see her reflection in a mirror, so she cannot see how she looks when she gets ready to go out and is having trouble remembering what she looks like. What a great observation for a traditional vampire character. I just wish that these types of neat observances were more prevalent in the book.

The narrator, Veronica Giguere, did a good job in voicing the characters.

Really wanted to

Yes, I had hoped to like this more than I did.
1st my list of Pros:
Narrator was clear and did a great job creating the characters.
The story had a promising storyline and did flow smoothly.
Cons: Though I felt the narrator did a great job, there were moments it came across somewhat monotone.
I could not connect with the characters and to me came across "hokey" most of the time.

Vampires

The book was OK but I couldn't seem to connect with the characters. The narrator did a great job in voicing the characters.

Very Generic

OK, if you like vampires and werebeasts type of books then you'll probably like this as long as you are not looking for anything different.

There is a vampire from New Orleans, hmmm, sure I've seen that somewhere before, oh that's right, every other vampire story.

To be fair, the story is ok, and it isn't set in New Orleans, but it is just a bit meh. I'm sure that if you love vampire stories involving a strong female MC, then you'll absolutely love this, but for me, I just would have liked some originality in there, and that is just lacking.

The narration is ok, not good but passable, she seems to struggle a little on male voices, they all pretty much sound the same but the females are great.

Overall. if you just must read a vampire story, then this is for you, if not, then...

Vamp City Review

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Vamp City is a nice long read, and I love learning about the different groups within the vamp community.

I would like to know more about Sophia’s life before she came to LA (is there a prequel book in the works?)
