Zeman writes one hell of a story, even if it is a little slow. The pace is set by all the buildup that it takes to get the setting and characters up to speed. Once it hits that point the story flies by like a rabbit on meth. Snowball goes from being a bullied bunny to the rabbit from Monty Python at the end, so it is worth sticking it out for the ride. The book is sort of a modern acceptance tale, her two dads are vampires, and unlike in the TV show by that name they are gay. Snow is berated and bullied, and musch of the delay in the story deals with her just trying to find a place to sleep and how to deal with her tormentors. As the father of a child who was constantly bullied in his younger years I really connected with snow over this issue. The end battle is well worth the time it takes to put in to get to that point. The story is well written, and it is touching and heartbreaking in some spots. I most be becoming a softie in my old age as this is not a book I would have read 10 years ago.
Erin Evans-Walker really steals the show here. She takes our little lab experiment and makes her real and sympathetic. Her portrayals of the other characters all standout. I am not normally a fan of female narators, unless of course the protagonist is female, but I think I could listen to her read a "manly" book and be happy.
I will certainly be looking for the next book as soon as it hits audible. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Would you consider the audio edition of Snowball to be better than the print version?
I like them both, but the audio version will allow me to listen any time.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Snowball?
This story has all the elements of a great science fiction piece. The main characters are well defined and very likable. The story has a great amount of imagination and nail biting bad people. I look forward to listening to the other books when they become available. This is a great story for anyone..
Have you listened to any of Erin Evans-Walker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
the Wererabbit chronicles.

If you could sum up Snowball in three words, what would they be?
Wererabbit, vampires, and evildoers.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Snow, because you get to see the story mostly from her perspective - and she's awesome!
What does Erin Evans-Walker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Erin reads with a lot of empathy for the characters, both good and bad. I tend to skim and read things with less feeling than she evokes. I get a better escape listening.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, I found it emotionally engaging. While I didn't break out in tears or guffaws, it was certainly poignant, gripping and funny.
Any additional comments?
I really liked both the story and the narration. And while Snow is my "favorite" character, I really liked the parental storyline, as well. Can't wait for the next escapades!
