"The narrator's voice is magical."
even if this book was the worst book ever, which it wasn't , I would have listened to it all the way to the end just to keep hearing to The narrator's Voice !
I love each one of these stories and the accent the narrator had for each character was spot-on. each story each story had made me wish that it was a little bit longer because it was so good.
All three stories had a related theme. Aside from the usual vampire rituals these stories. contain, morality, concern for the greater good as it relates to community.
"Good yes - but just not great"
An enjoyable selection of Vampire stories and, like a box of chocolates, you'll each have your favorite one and it may give you a short taste of other author's works.
I'm not going to review each one but, I did think 2 were good but the last one was just average however they each contained interesting plots, action, likeable characters, had no real surprises, there was passion, sex, romance and, of course, sexy Vampires.
Worth a credit? Unfortunately, it's sadly put me off short listens because you just don't get the depth and it lacked that 'feel good' factor - so I'd have to say NO but if it's on sale, or you like short stories, then go ahead.
"All of them are pretty booorrring."
These three anthologies were pretty boring! So glad I am done and surprised myself by even finishing this book.
The 1st book-Dark Hero by Hannah Howell- it was the best of the three.
The 2nd book- Bride of the Beast by Adrienne Basso, it was second best of the three
The 3rd book- Kiss of the Vampire by Eve Silver, it was the worst of the three, and very difficult to finish.
All of them were about 110 pages each give or take.
They all had sex, and quite a bit of dialogue, but the stories were just boring. The story lines and plots were dull and not memorable. Not one of them did I wish was a regular long book that I think I would enjoy.
As for the narrator. She was barely okay. I have listened to her before and enjoyed her other narration much more than this one. I think it was the tone of voice she was reading in. It was sort of smug in a way. I don't know how to describe it really, but I can say that she did not help these boring stories and maybe made them even more boring.
I did get this audible on sale with whispersync so I am really glad I didn't use a credit.
Don't waste your time or money on this book. There are too many books out there that are enjoyable.This one was not.
