Getting through the first chapter was rough. The story itself was okay, the telling and writing not so much. A more extensive vocabulary would have helped greatly. While Ms. Flosnik is not a terrible narrator, she didn't really fit this story or these characters.

What disappointed you about Blood Shadows?
The narrator. I did not get past the first chapter.
Would you ever listen to anything by Lindsay J. Pryor again?
If the narrator was different.
What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?
Everything. The accent was the worst.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood Shadows?
Did not get that far.
Any additional comments?

loved the book, unfortunately didn't enjoy the narration, it actually spoilt it. a great pity, I am now reading the print version without listening to that very boring voice droning on. it's much better.

I really dislike leaving bad reviews. Normally I can find something positive to say but this has to be the first book I can find nothing good about at all. Dreadful prose, dreadful narration. I won't be buying any other books by this author or read by this narrator.

Lindsay's created a great alternate reality where Vampires and Lycan alike are known humans. The humans call them the third species. Within that world exists the Third Species Control Unit (TSCU) and within that are subdivisions such as the Lycan Control Unit and the Vampire Control Unit (VCU). Think of it like an FB I sort of organisation. The female protagonist, Caitlyn Parish works for the VCU as a shadow reader meaning she can read vampire's 'soul' of sorts. She has become obsessed with tracking and hunting down Master Vampire, and apparent criminal, Kane Malloy as well as finding what killed her parents. Kane Malloy is, in turn, on his own mission to seek vengance for the murder of his sister Arana.
Their stories intertwine and they realise that their current life's path are not so different even though they are on different sides of the law and order tracks.
I don't want to give too much away. However, the sexual tension is evident from their first meeting and also how they are the right fit for each other. Their relationship unravels amidst each of their finding out what happened to their respective murdered family members.
So many twist and turns in the story made it a great and addict 'read' (or listen in my case). I heard it all in 2 days! It is a complete plot. No gaps. Very heavy and I loved it!
