When archaeologist Zoe Miller’s cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian kidnapper, she must come to grips with a haunting secret. Unknown to even her closest friends, Zoe is not entirely human. She is a werewolf and a daughter of the "Fangborn", a hidden race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles.
Zoe’s attempt to rescue her cousin leads her on a quest for artifacts - including Pandora’s Box, an object of world-ending power. With the fate of humanity in the balance, Zoe will be forced to renew family ties and pit her own supernatural abilities against a dark and nefarious foe.
At once captivating, deftly worded, and character-rich, Seven Kinds of Hell expands vampire legend and werewolf noir in both intensity and charismatic bite.
"Seven Kinds of Hell is a great adventure. Dana Cameron’s supernatural heroes are refreshingly different, and the action is astonishing." (New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris)
"Dana Cameron can pull me into a story like few other writers. Wildly creative, thrilling, and fun, the Fangborn series is one you won’t want to miss!" (New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen)

Decent Story, frustrating Narator
As an story, this is not a bad tale. It's a little bit like a book aimed at teenagers but throw in some swearing and say it's for adults. The storyline is good and sets the scene for subsequent books and I'll probably have a listen to them as there is enough of a hook to make me want to find out what happens next.
I can't think of a specific book to compare this to, but it's an interesting take on the Werewolf / Vampire (and now Oracle) genre. Think Underworld without quite as much violence and throw in a bit of shooting around Europe.
Now this is the sticking point with this Audiobook. It's like listening to a Text-To-Speech program. Kate's voice has a very distinctive choppy style where she seems to think that every syllable of every word MUST be pronounced, which makes it very unnatural. And as another reviewer has commented the word is "SHARD" with an "A" not "SHIRD", along with other plainly wrong pronunciations. You can excuse the French train stations, but not simple English words.
The story does keep you wanting to listen, (despite the pronunciation), so I guess as a reaction the story made me feel excited to find out what happens next.
