  • A different kind of vampire story

    I liked this book but I didn’t love it as much as I had hoped that I would. I went into this book with incredibly high expectations which may have been unrealistic. The book has been one that I have wanted to read for a long time so I jumped at the opportunity to listen to this audiobook. There were a lot of things that I really liked about the book and I am glad that I finally got the chance to experience it for myself. One thing that I really liked about this book is how different the vampires were compared to most vampire stories. The fact that there were different vampire subspecies and they were all different was really interesting and I think that it added a lot to the story. Atl is an Aztec vampire which is bird-like. Atl is on the run from another clan that wants to kill her. She pairs up with a human, Domingo, who is completely taken with her right away. Can they stay safe if they work together? My favorite character in the book was Domingo. He was all in from the start and really wanted to be the support that he felt Atl needed. Atl was much more complicated. She has been through some terrible things and the odds were really against her. I did love Atl’s dog and loved how protective he was of her. I thought that most of the characters were interesting but unfortunately, I never grew to care about any of them. There was just something about this book that failed to hook me. Aida Reluzco did a good job with the narration but I do feel like this book would have been better if several narrators were used. There were times that I wasn’t quite sure which perspective the book had switched to which could be rather confusing. I thought that she had a very pleasant voice and was easy to listen to for hours at a time. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a different kind of vampire story. This book didn’t completely click for me but I do think that a lot of other readers will really appreciate the story. I definitely plan to read more of this author’s work in the future. I received a digital review copy of this audiobook from Macmillan Audio via NetGalley.

  • Original Twist

    Certain Dark Things - Silvia Morena-Garcia A unique and interesting story, but one best listened to with earbuds. The narrator is very soft-spoken, switches accents with ease, and is pleasant to listen to. Unfortunately, in a car, that soft voice means it is hard to hear sometimes. The narrator’s voice is soothing and could easily read you to sleep or calm you in a panic attack. I found that a wonderful juxtaposition to the gore and menace found within the story. Silvia Morena-Garcia is a writer who adheres to the belief that there is no such thing as plot armor and happily ever afters are in the eye of the beholder. The end came too soon. This was excellent. Thank you to NetGalley, Sylvia Morena-Garcia, and McMillan Audio for giving me the chance to listen to this story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.

    Thanks for your feedback!
