My Thoughts:
I had issues, and the nail in the coffin was when I fell asleep and did not care to go back and listen to 15 min or so. Oh and when I sped it up even more cos I just wanted it to end.

I did not care for Raven. She had killed a lot of people, but then we learn that she does not know to fight and her magic is not as good as the real breeds...right, and she took down dangerous baddies how? Supposedly by luring them in..right.
Oh and she is an idiot. Think woman! There was this situation and she effed up, and then she got applauds and I was all ...riiight.
I do not need someone kickass but at least I want smart.
She was too much, too honorable, and then not. Too smart mouthed, always. Too much.

Christian who I guess is the love interest was too much. Not even the accent saved him. Always with the smart mouth. He came of sleazy in the end. Ugh, no thanks.

The gang was, sigh, why did those people get picked?

Why do breed despise humans when some of them were humans like a year ago.

And I wish the story had been more, well plausible. Things happened way too easily.

By a saving grace it will get an ok rating

Narrator.
She made it better, but not even she could save this train wreck. Would have been a dnf without the narration

Blurb:
When the road forks, how do you know which path is the right one? Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law. Half Vampire, half Mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian Shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. The catch? Her new partner is Christian Poe-a smug, handsome Vampire whom she'd rather stake than go on a stakeout with. They're hot on the trail of a human killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. One misstep during her probationary period could jeopardize Raven's chance at redemption, and her partner would love nothing more than to see her fail. Dark secrets, unexpected twists, and a blurred line between good and evil will keep you on the edge of your seat. Will Raven find the courage to succeed, or will she give in to her dark nature?

  2. LOL! Your review reminds me of the heroine in horror stories who keeps running through the forest and tripping all the time. You know the audio would have made me a little groggy anyway, but if the story didn't work still, that would have been the pits. So sorry this one didn't work for you. Hugs...RO

  5. I enjoyed this more than you, but I totally agree about Raven, I really struggled with her early on, She got better, but I am still not a big fan. I hope I like her more as this goes on.

  7. Oh I feel your pain. I can deal with books I find a bit boring, but I just cannot abide an idiot main character.

  8. I hope to try this author soon. Maybe in the new year. Not this series, but a much earlier one.
    Ha, sometimes its so tough to care when the actions and behavior are annoying.
