Summary

When Justin Slade discovers he has super strength, speed, and the ability to seduce women, life gets a lot more interesting. But as he learns the ropes of his new supernatural abilities, he soon realizes he's not alone.

Vampires, felycans, sorcerers, Templars - they all exist, and what he doesn't know can most certainly kill him in more gruesome ways than he can count.

good story, weak mc

only complaint I had was with the mc being so judgmental of other people after he blatantly describes himself as a fat nerd. I would have felt bad for the mc but he did hardly did anything to test let alone improve his physical or supernatural powers thus putting himself in the bad situation. lastly, enough with the crying.

Good start<br />

Justins growth was good. But even some supernatural stuff is knowledge. The girl would be the same with more knowledge because who she is. . . Overall though it's a good start.

Fun with an amazing Narrator

I am almost done with the series and I absolutely LOVED every single book! The narrator for audiobooks is a perfect fit for these book and absolutely amazing voice!

Bit too PG 13 for me

Well written good dialog but dont understand how characters can deal with supernatural creatures who murder and yet dont even utter one swear word. Too sanitized for me .

Adore this Series in Print &amp; Now Audio!

This series holds a special place in my heart. Princess Bride references, nerdy little tidbits, urban fantasy, fun characters, even the slightly after-school special teen drama beginning - it speaks to everything I enjoy in books. I am smitten. This is a fun read that left me aching for the sequel. Sweet Blood of Mine is fantastic for adults and young adults alike!

As for the narrator, as I specified in the review title, I first fell in love in print so I had pretty firm inner voices for characters in my head. The narrator did a fine job - probably even deserves the full five stars... but his voices don't always match what my brain expectes to hear. Not his fault, my weird brain is totally to blame in this case. Though as I listen to more audio books in the Overworld Chronicles series I hope I can clear out my inner voices to fully enjoy the narration.

I Couldn't Stop Listening

A magical teen fantasy read in a deep voice, literally everything I wanted. I somehow managed to finish this 17 hour book in 3 days.
