Librarian. Assassin. Vampire.
Amber Fang enjoys life's simple pleasures - a good book, a glass of wine and, of course, a great meal.
Raised to eat ethically, Amber dines only on delicious, cold-blooded killers. But being sure they're actually killers takes time...research...patience.
It's a good thing Amber's a librarian. Her extraordinary skills help her hunt down her prey, seek out other vampires, and stay on the trail of her mother, missing now for two years. One day she stalks a rather tasty-looking murderer and things get messy. Very messy. Amber, the hunter, becomes the hunted.
And then, from out of nowhere, the perfect job offer: Assassin. She'd be paid to eat the world's worst butchers. How ideal.
Until it isn't.
Amber Fang is the first book in a new action and adventure vampire series by best-selling author Arthur Slade.

New spin on old vampire mythology .
This is an enjoyable listen. There are new and varied elements to the vampire mythology . I really like the character of Amber and it was fun to follow her struggles as the story progressed. All of the secrets that we find out about made the story more enjoyable. I am looking forward to the next installment.I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
3.5* - narration detracts from audiobook
This is my first experience with this author and I was pleasantly surprised. There were only two instances of the book where the heroine behaved in a way that didn't fit with my mental image of her character (in a class and in Iceland). But otherwise, I found her to be a very appealing protagonist. The writing was witty and the characters were all likeable. For the first book in the series, the book ended at a good transition point.
Now it's time to get on my soapbox about narration. I've been teaching female grad students at a post-secondary education institution for years, and I've never had a student who sounded like Amber. I was once a grad student in my early/mid '20s (many years ago) and I never came across anyone in my class who sounded like that either. The narrator voiced a teenager character, someone you might find in a high school drama class. I don't mean to hammer on the narrator, but if this is her range and her vocal style, then I think a better fit for her would be narrating stories intended for younger audiences. She's certainly enthusiastic, that's for sure!
So, because I didn't find the narration compelling and I did find the story compelling, I set my playback speed to 2x so I could find out what happened in the story. I wouldn't have finished the audiobook if I played it at regular speed. I'd definitely, definitely read the next story in this series. I definitely would not listen to the next story in this series with this narrator; in my opinion, she's a good children's book narrator, but she's not Amber Fang.
I provided my opinion in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.
