If I would have to compare the first three book's audio quality and the reader's competence with this one (bear in mind that I haven't finished this book yet) assuming that the first three is level 5 in both of regard this would get a two. Hence the rating. It might be just the record quality (really bad, noisy and it has no depth) but the reader's voice comes out as really shallow squeaking pubescent. It really only has one voice and in trying to sound differently she fails miserably. Compared to the previous reader's competence this is very mediocre. Which is a shame as the series is interesting and full of novel ideas.

I luckily have read the first three books when I was younger but as this is the first available audio book in this series a person who doesn't read would have difficulty understanding 50% of the story.
Performance was very good accents very well done and didn't sound too forced very well read in a clear intelligent voice.
I love the series.
HATE that they switched narrators.
WHY after 3 books would they do that? I didn't dislike or like the original one, but this one is all wrong! It's hard to tell the characters apart. Maybe it will grow on me, but I'm having a really hard time getting through this book because of the narrator.

As an adult I have enjoyed reading the House of Night series. I regularly listen to audio books. So, when I saw the forth book available on audible I decided to get it. I was very disappointed. This book is about a 17 year almost adult vampire. This narrator makes all the characters, including adults sound like they are about ten years old.
As noted on Amazon, this series is not for children. It is for an older teenager (16+) and the content is mature, which is another reason why the narrator just does not work. I'm going to read the book, and stop listening.
