This book has a lot of what I enjoy in a story. Romance, betrayal, an engaging journey to name a few. I thought at first the story was going to be about they journey, when that wrapped up relatively quickly, I realized the story had a lot to tell.

I like the interactions between the slayer and vampire protagonists. The way they clearly star to like each other and refuse to admit it always had me smiling to myself. I found myself counting down the chapters until they would finally admit they both had feelings.

Speaking of romance, the romance scenes were hot. It was always apparent that the characters involved were genuinely interested in each other as people and it made them all the more enjoyable and realistic.

Realism as a whole in this story was well done. I noted how the story often featured events, dialogue, internal and otherwise, etc. that other stories wouldn’t have bothered with. It made the world, the characters, the setting all the more believable and relatable. I was (and still am) confused on how the modern tech and human stuff such as cell phones and instagram work.

I very much enjoyed the audiobook narration. The narrator did an excellent job of voicing and emoting characters. I never had an issue telling who was talking and it was a nice change over hearing about how a character is angry and not actually hearing it. Both the narration and the story painted a clear picture of every scene in my head, allowing me to immerse myself in the story.

I have previously listened to and reviewed the prequel. So I did go in with a basic understanding of where the world is and how slayers and vampires work.
