Audio Book Review: Vampire Girl By Karpov Kinrade

Vampire Girl
(Vampire Girl #1)
By Karpov Kinrade

Narrators: Laurel Schroeder & Joel Froomkin
You think it's safe to walk alone at night. It's not.

You think the only threat is other humans. It's not.

Monsters are real. Demons are real. Vampires are real.

And I'm about to become one of them.

My name is Arianna Spero. I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until my mother lapsed into a coma. Now, I am her only hope. She made a deal with the devil, and on my 18th birthday he came to collect. But there's a way to save her. There's something the princes of hell want more than my mother.


So I signed my soul away and promised to pick a prince to marry. I would take the blood oath, become one of them, and give them an heir. I would become a princess of hell, and my mother would live.

I expected fire and brimstone. I expected pain and misery. I didn't expect beauty. I didn't expect magic.

I didn't expect love.

But the princes are keeping secrets from me.

Secrets that could shatter everything.

My Review:

This was a very nice average novel. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it wasn't perfect by any means. I liked the overall plot line, but I hated how clueless the heroine was and how everyone seemed to know something she didn't (especially in the beginning of the story).

I liked how the author portrayed Arianna as witty and sassy, but that's about all that I liked about her. I didn't like how she could do no wrong and the number of times the rug was swept from under her. I also didn't understand how a small girl who was trained in sword fighting all of 3 weeks could take down 3 huge fae men almost by herself. I'm all for girl power, but I want it to seem believable even if it's a fictional world.

I have a love/hate relationship with Fen. I loved him in the beginning of the book. I also liked that he helped Arianna train in sword fighting and didn't say anything when she got a job. Though every time he would give her the cold shoulder for no apparent reason, I would start to think less of him. 

The ending could have been better. I understood that it was against the 'Council's' laws, but he was the only one willing to help and protect her. Why would he willingly risk that? It would have been better if he had had an eating frenzy and almost killed her and then have that ending occur. 

The Audio Book:

I enjoyed Laurel Schroeder rendition of the audio book, but I despised the two chapters read by Joel Froomkin. It doesn't have anything to do with him or the actual reading. My problem is that I can't stand audio books read by men. I never know when the girl is talking because it sounds the same and I can't relax while listening. Other then that, it was awesome!

The Power Of Book Covers: Henry, The Gaoler By A.W. Exley

They say don't judge a book by it's movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

Henry, The Gaoler
(Serenity House #2)
By A.W. Exley

Imagine if Rapunzel's parents were Edwardian preppers.

Hazel's parents saw the 1912 sinking of the Titanic as a portent of doom and locked their daughter away. Isolated and alone, each birthday she wishes to be free, whatever the risk. If only her childhood friend Henry would return and breach the high walls.

On the frontlines of the Great War, Henry kept a token of happier times – a worn photograph of a young girl with long blonde plaits. He returns from war damaged and vowing to do one brave thing to make up for his cowardice - release Hazel from her prison. But is it safe with the pandemic and its horrific aftermath?

How can Henry reconcile protecting Hazel with setting her free? Or perhaps the sheltered young woman will teach the soldier a lesson about life, and liberate him from a tower of his own construction.

Please note Henry's story is a companion novella to Ella, The Slayer. The direct sequel to Ella will be Alice, The Player
