Amazon kept recommending this series to me, but I was sceptical. The combination of vampires and space travel seemed to me an unlikely combination to make a good story. I could not have been seeing. It was nothing like I might have guessed! I decided to try the audiobook first, and listened to the first three one after the other.
I like the characters, and the developing story arc is absorbing. Could the be a better narrator for this series? I doubt it. Do yourself a favour and listen or read these books.
The first book was “eh,” the second was better but this was the best out of the three. You really do get hooked on this series. You just gotta love Bethany Anne. She has the funniest ways of swearing, she makes it up as she goes along, sometimes it makes sense and sometimes it doesn’t. She continues to build her army to wipe out the Forsaken, before moving on to bigger and better battles.
These are not cliffhangers but you really do have to read them in order to keep up with all the characters, such as: John, Dan, Bobcat, Pete, Eric, Scott, Darryl, Stephen, Gabrielle, Ivan, Nathan, Ecaterina, Lance (Bethany Anne’s father,) Killian, Frank, Jean, Todd, Rodriquez, Jenkins, and anyone else I might have missed. They’re all great secondary characters, and all of them are in every book so far, and I’m sure they’ll be in the next book, Bite This.
Everyone is totally faithful and very protective of Bethany Anne. They’d kill for her and die for her, too. And then there’s TOM, the alien computer who happened to hitch a ride IN Bethany Anne, and he’s a fun character, too.
In this story a person who was very dear to Bethany Anne is killed by an enemy vampire and Bethany Anne travels to Costa Rica to exact her revenge. Actually, she was traveling all over the world. I especially liked what she did to the Sheik and his men, they were more than deserving of what they got. This is such an exciting series. There are 16 books and it looks like they’re all going to be on Audible. Yay! I think the reading of the books make all the difference in the world.
There’s no sex, no romance of any kind so if that’s what you’re looking for then keep looking. If you’re looking for an addictive series then stop here.
As to the narration: Emily Beresford gets better and better with each book, as does her emotions while reading.

Wow this is another great addition to this series. It is so addicting. I check everyday for a new release on audible. They are coming out pretty fast but not as fast as I can listen. LOL
I love all the action, butt kicking and boy does Bethany Anne have a way with words. So much fantastic dialogue throughout the entire book. These stories are pure entertainment. I love listening to the narrator's and author's commentary/notes at the end of the story.
I have already listened to the next book and will review that shortly but I think I am going to try and wait a couple months to see how many more are released so I can binge listen!
As for the narration, it is great! Emily Beresford does such a great job narrating. The men sound like men, everyone get's their own distinct voice she reads with emotion and her end comments at the end of the book are very entertaining, She really does like reading this series. Makes it better for the listener to I think.
