I listened to this one and followed along in my copy of the actual book as well. I got the audio book from the library, it was a great way to "read/listen" to a book while I drove to all the places I needed to go.
I liked the idea of a vampire prep school and I really enjoyed listening to how different they were from the other vamps I've read about. Though it was a slow start for me, all together it was a nice read. I will continue to read more of the series and read Betrayed soon, but I'm not really jumping at the book and reading right this minute.
As for the actual characters, to me they didn't seem well developed but they were good enough for the first story. I did enjoy the differences between the main characters and Zoey's group of friends. Mainly this bok was a starter to the whole series, but it didn't grab my full attention. I'm hoping it will get a bit better as the series goes on. I really enjoyed the Mark on Zoey as well but the book really didn't explain why her's was so different. I mean I know shes special and all but why was she picked to be like she is.
I did enjoy the book, not saying it was bad really, just a bit slow and it needed to be a bit more thought out I think. I'm just not jumping right this second to grab the next one and that says something.
My over all rating of the story:
( I loved the intricate marks on the book)
( Audio thoughts: Well, the person that read for the audio book wasn't that bad. the voices she used for all the different characters, well some of them were way to close to the others and I couldn't tell which character was speaking. That's why I gave it a three.)
So yeah, I liked the book... just not the best!!! What do you think of the book. Totally understand if you don't agree with me, but would love to hear your opinions!
