Publisher's Summary

It's tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires...especially when their very existence drains your life force.
Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother's mysterious death, Willow's life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner - her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he's turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him...and any other specimen of the undead.
In order to save Willow's life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she's convinced they know something about her brother's death. Unsure where David's loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery.
Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who'll stop at nothing to control Willow's gifts, she'll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust. Otherwise, she risks losing more than just her life.

Flat characters & storyline

Would you try another book written by Deanna Chase or narrated by Gabra Zackman?

Potentially yes, the author might have developed since this book. But it depends on other reviews and the storyline.

What could Deanna Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The storyline reminded me too much of reminded me too much of True Blood. That on it's own wouldn't have been bad if the characters had enough depth. But I couldn't relate to them at all. The author worked with lots of cliches and the actions and descriptions of the personas seem forced into said cliches.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It is easy listening.

What character would you cut from Influential Magic?

David. I know he's necessary for the storyline but I find his actions make no sense.

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately I bought this book based on positive reviews. I should have listened to the negative one - the two stars are for me finishing the book.

Not impressive at all.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. it really wasn't worth listening to it all.its hard to enjoy a book when the main character is the biggest issue you have with the quality.She is useless and not in a cute clumsy way just plain old useless .She is weak willed ,selfish,spineless,illlequiped to do most things but inserts herself in to the middle of things when others are trained to do the task and she puts them in danger because of it .she is self important and seems to be all bravado with nothing to back it up and is clutching at one guy s shirt to the next expecting them to help.Her best friend is the best character in my opinion ,she is the only one with any continuity. I saw this after listening to all 3 books( i had to listen to all 3 because I was hoping for her to get a backbone and woman up or for the story to get better as the bare bones had the potential) The story through the three books has bad continuity also,for example the shifter lore ,in one book the healing when her dog shifts is what fixes his leg and in the next book its explained that "the shift does not heel shifters" . If this wasn't the only series of my i pod at the time I would have given up despite my wanting to see if the story improved.
