FIRST AUDIO BOOK !! GREAT START TO THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
on September 14, 2012
My Thoughts -I admit I am a huge fan of novellas. It's incredibly difficult to create a good back story, develop characters and establish an interesting plot in such a limited amount of pages. A lot of authors will end up overwhelming readers with too much detail or underwhelming them with too few. It's hard to get the balance just right. I think it's a true test of an author's skill to point out all we need to know and successfully deliver a story that resonates with us.
Lorraine Kennedy is one of those skilled authors. This audio book-novella had me from the first couple of minutes as I listened to the narration sample with Nicole entering the room for the first time and catching a glimpse of her future vampire-lover. Nicole is sent to the towns hot spot to locate Alec (the lead vampire in his rock band! And the vampire to whom she tries "not" to fall all over like all of his other 'groupies'. We meet the supporting characters, like Nicole's boss Ethan, who has a dark secret, Nicole's mother, who has an even 'darker' secret and who sheds light on who Nicole 'really is'. It is a clash between the vampires, some who will protect the humans, others who only want to feed and destroy them, and those who want freedom from the vampire curse! You never know who to trust. And those you suspect you should stay far away from, are the ones who you should really keep close to you, and vice versa.
The accident that happened with Nicole's little brother Jay was heart wrenching, and I feel so badly for any person who has experience this type of loss.
Very clever ... the title, "BORN TO DARKNESS" comes from the sisters ... being born into darkness. Listen to this audio, and you will totally figure out the connection. The readers, Destiny Landon & Lee James were great - great chemistry. All characters voices were enjoyable and well done.
An alliance appears to be necessary between species that would typically be enemies in order to survive extinction.
I'm looking for the next audio book to find out more about the sisters born to darkness. this is exciting ......
