Publisher's Summary

Wisdom - the fourth book in the My Blood Approves series.

For her 18th birthday, Alice Bonham takes a vacation to Australia only to have her trip cut short by an unexpected murder. While Alice tries to understand what happened, she regrets some of the choices she's made, especially the more permanent ones. On top of that, the child vampire is running loose, and its attracting some very unwanted attention.

Worth Reading The Entire Series ...

Would you listen to Wisdom again? Why?

Having read the entire series over five or six days, I was happy that Wisdom was worth the journey. I'll probably read this every year, and take some more time to understand Hockings' writing style.

What other book might you compare Wisdom to and why?

In an odd way, Wisdom and the entire series had overtures of the Twilight series in some parts of the plot and of course the main character love triangle.

What about Hannah Friedman’s performance did you like?

I think Friedman hit her stride in this book - this was the most convincing of her performances in the series. I found the characters better differentiated this time around.

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

I think the film's slogan could be:

Any additional comments?

I would not recommend reading this series of books out of order -- be prepared for the story to move slowly at times but to be thoroughly satisfying at the end.

Ummmmm

I am not quite sure what I should say about this book. While I enjoyed it very much, moreso than some of the others, I am unsure of the direction that it headed in. Is this the last book in this series? If so why was it so opened ended? I loved the book, but was very disapointed because I am unsure if the Journey ends here for Alice and Jack?? What about Peter? Milo? Where is this all going??? I would love some answers......another book perhaps.

Wisdom... Where?

If you are going to name a book wisdom, there should be some in it right? Nope. Not a single wise choice made by any character.

I began this series because I bought it during a sale. After the first book I regretted it but I wanted to see if this amateur author picked up any speed - The Iron King series actually does (the first book was rough but it got better). But no, Alice is the same self-absorbed teenager with a blah relationship and no goals. The conflict was lame, the climax was muddled and the resolution was predictable.

Oh, and if one has a rabid 5 year old vampire who has problems attacking people, should one take it on a 15 hour plane ride? Seriously? I tried saving more brain cells from death but I think I pushed them too far. 0 stars.

Holy cow!

That was an insanely emotional book. I can’t believe all that happened in this book. Such an awesome story. As always Hannah Friedman did an amazing job with the narration. Can’t wait to listen to the next one!!

Good, but definitely made me feel old.

I loved this book 6 years ago, when I was a teenager. I do like the book and the story, but the romance is SO cheesy. Lol, literally so much sex(non descriptive) and it's like anytime things went wrong Alice was all over Jack. Sugar that is not realistic. But overall a great read. But, I'll always be #teampeter

Any additional comments?

I thought the first book was a little slow, but each book got better than the last and I thought it was fantastic! Don't listen to the haters. It's a fun story with a good ending.
