The story was very entertaining. While I'm not an avid reader, I have listened to some audio books over the years. I had read good reviews of the book and decided to try Audible specifically to listen to Come What May while I did so e recent traveling. Unfortunately, I had to split the book nearly in half with two weeks between. After listening to the first half, I was eager to finish the book on the second trip.
Kevin's way of describing the world Sam was living in was excellent. I was able to picture the surroundings, buildings, people, and action. I even had a couple laughs about some of the town descriptions as they were quite accurate for reality and expressed what many people probably think as they drive through.
I look forward to future audio releases of Mr. Swaim's writings so I can listen to them all. Hopefully Mr. Tedder will continue to narrate this series, if not all of them as I believe he did an excellent job. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in action/suspense. There is no need to be a fan of vampire books to enjoy this one.

Sam Fisher is just trying to live his life and make his business work. He is happy with his life! That is until he arrives home one day to find blood on the floor and his wife lying in it. His daughter is in the grip of.... something. That is the moment that Jack Harlan enters his life and saves Sam from the vampires. Sam is thrust into the supernatural world in an effort to save his family from the monstrous beings.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! it has been way too long since I found a Vampire story that I enjoyed so much. It was well written and executed and the plot was fast paced! I really liked the vampire lore and learning about how they work. I also loved the idea of the Vampire Council and The Sheriff who polices rogue vampires! That alone could be the focus of a book!
I really liked Sam, he is just an ordinary guy who is trying to keep his business going. When his wife is killed, and his daughter taken, all he wants to do is hunt the people down, but Jack has to talk him down because Sam will only get killed. Sam learns some surprising truths too!!
I liked Jack too. He is mysterious, brave and an all round kick ass dude! When we start finding out his history and who he is, I was enthralled! I have to say that I loved what happened to him when a vamp was killed and thought it was unique. It added something new (to me anyway) to a genre that was full of the same thing all the time.
In all, this was a great read. I owned the ebook but bought the audio to listen to and am so glad I did! I am so looking forward to the next one because that ending broke my heart!!
Jim Tedder was easy to listen to and was clear and concise. He had a few tones and voices to differentiate the characters, and gave a good performance.
