Publisher's Summary

Amaliya Vezorak never believed in happy endings....
When Amaliya harnessed her necromancer powers to defeat her greatest enemy, she believed she had finally found a happy ending with Cian, her lover and the master of Austin. That happiness is short-lived when the vampire ruling over San Antonio attempts a takeover of Austin in order to capture Amaliya and use her power for his own devices.
To make matters worse, Samantha, Cian's ex-fiancée, is seeing ghosts, the untested vampire hunters of Austin are running scared as a supernatural war looms, a mysterious man is hunting Amaliya with the help of her one time lover, Pete, and Racho?, the Summoner's favorite progeny, appears to be out for revenge.
When Amaliya's grandmother, a powerful medium, experiences terrible visions that reveal there is another necromancer vampire and she is crying out for help, Amaliya realizes happy endings do not come easily....

Fairly average to be honest.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The actions of the main characters family members would be what I'd change. They charge off with a plan that just wasn't believable to me, and trusting someone with a story that sounded to good to be true. Not to mention not even considering to ask the MC what she wanted.This got covered by convenient lack of cell service so they couldn't talk to her. They were on the road for hours and I'm sure Texas is not that lousy for cell coverage that they would have zero coverage for the whole trip. They even had rather weak reasons they could not use a landline, and no mention of looking for a payphone on the trip.


Would you recommend Pretty When She Kills to your friends? Why or why not?

Not really. Story had too many flat spots where it didn't seem to be going anywhere. I think that for me the reason was that the book was short but had many characters in different locations. This meant that it all felt a bit weird on time line and not enough time for each character group to really shine or have a decent plot point.


Have you listened to any of Kristin Allison’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a couple of hers. Her character voices and acting was fine, but I really wasn't a fan of her narrative narration. She delivers it all pretty flatly and too quickly as well I thought. And I didn't understand why. She was fine with the voices but did very little changes of pace in the narrative, which makes the narrative feel flat and dull.


Was Pretty When She Kills worth the listening time?

Just about. It's not bad, it's not good. Fairly average really and not the authors best work in my opinion.
