Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The third book in the series and am starting to get fed up of the cliffhanger endings. I can't leave without it being wrapped up but the problems with the other books still haven't been addressed making it harder and harder to stay happy with the series. I understand she is a mother and an investigator but at the same time I don't see her being much of a mother throughout this book. Her son is ill but rather than spend time with him often she is out doing cases and leaving her daughter with her sister who seems to be raising her.
The repetition of information is getting highly irritating. You have mentioned her cold hands 100 times now and still doesn't have any real relevance to the story. Why have the children as part of the story if you are going to just mention that they are either with their dad or at her sisters?
What did you love best about American Vampire?
I love how the characters development over the series, and how Samantha's skills seem to evolve with each story.
What did you like best about this story?
In this story, we finally get to know who Fang is which I did not see that coming. I love it when a plot takes me by surprise.
Any additional comments?
This is not typical vampire story and does not betray vampires as being perfect. Yeah, Samantha has heightened senses and strength, but she cannot been seen in a mirror, or go out in the sun. Oh, and she can only drink blood and some white wine. Then she can turn into a creature that can fly.

I am a fan of this series, but it's a bit like a good bowl of popcorn; you enjoy it while you're eating it, and you're certainly sorry when it's done, but if something else exciting comes along, you can easily put it down. That said, I have purchased every book and will continue to do so. The writing is smooth, although I felt something was 'off' on the interpersonal relationships until I discovered JR Rain is a man-- then it made sense. Don't get me srong, he is a good writer and makes a great story and an easy read, but the women's inner voice seems like a man's version of a woman's inner voice if you know what a mean. This is a good combo of supernatural and mystery, reminded me of Dresden Files a little. Overall, a good, solid easy to digest series that I will stick with.
