review 1: What did I think? I thought this book was riveting! This was my first chance at reading a book by this author, or I should say listened to the audiobook. First thing, the narrator, Traci Odom was fantastic! She went from Lissa to Texan dude accent to English vampire dude seamlessly. It was amazing, she didn't skip a beat with changing voices and accents in a single conversation throughout the whole book. I really enjoyed her performance.Secondly, the story line was phenomenal. When I started the book, it seemed like maybe it was just going to be local, where the main character Lissa was turned, and maybe just her figuring out how to be a vampire, but it was much more than that. Connie made Lissa's character have simple common sense and deduction, which made her tur... morening quite easy without all the drama and crying and carrying on that I have experienced in other books. It took me a bit to get used to, but I did pretty early on in the book. I really enjoyed the characters, and how Connie drew out the revealing of their true natures to both me the reader and to Lissa. I didn't figure things out before hand so therefore I was just as surprised as Lissa it seemed. The potential love interests for Lissa were quite a hoot and I was glad to see that their were more than one, which made for some interesting comments and pissing contests on the jealous suitors part. Then just when you think everything is cool and Lissa is going to be off the hook and free to live her life as she see's fit, BAM! The story gets even more interesting as she is carted off by a secret hit man to another country to meet her fate by the vampire counsel that she never even knew existed. It was exciting and scary and very cool, all at the same time. To make things even more interesting, Lissa apparently has very rare and cool gifts that make her even more special than the fact that she is 1 in 16 female vampires in the whole world. I can't wait to start the next book, which the audiobook will come out next month and I am all over it!
review 2: I loved this book and its characters. I liked that Lissa had had a real life before she was turned. I was very excited to find out that there are 8 books in this series but then I read the previews and reviews. I will probably read a couple more in the series but from reading the reviews from others about the series it takes a Anita Blake/scifi turn that does not interest me in the least. I checked out the previews chapters on amazon and they do seem to take a very strange turn... 300 hundred years into the future and a different planet? Pass. less

One of the best books I read in quite a while.
