What made the experience of listening to Demon from the Dark the most enjoyable?

It made me feel that love can arrive at any time and in the most unexpected ways

Who was your favorite character and why?

Malkom Slaine...he was such a tortured soul, that it was a joy to watch him open up his heart to love.

What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

He is the master of voices - I love his deep vampire ones and he does an amazingly believable job with females.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

They were brought together by deception, but found the healing power of love

Any additional comments?

Pretty much listened to this in one go - did not leave my house all weekend.
