This recording and narrator are both enthralling and brilliant. I love the way Sands, through her pros style , elevates the struggle of every man’s search to find that perfect partner or soul mate to a real possibility. We read about vampires in Vampire Most Wanted, albeit god-fearing and enhanced with Atlantean Nanotechnology, but we recognize that we are reading about ourselves at the same time. Everyone struggles with the loneliness and hardships of life. Everyone fantasizes about “what if I could find my perfect partner?” “What if I could find the person to share the toils and tribulations of the journey of life?” Sands delivers this to you, at least for a little bit and lifts you above “the struggle.” She clothes the struggle in fantasy, humor, and sensuality.
She has a way of making the disenchanted struggles of Basha and hopeful struggles of Marcus, our struggle-every man’s struggle. Of course we are happy for Marcus, having met him, briefly, in other Sands novels, e.g. Vampire Interrupted and A Bite To Remember. You cannot help but be pleased that it’s his turn to finally find happiness. Basha and Marcus exult in the end, we are pleased.
The Narrator, Bebe Kaye, is perfect. Vampire Most Wanted is plotted well and an ingenious read.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No, I was very disappointed in this story. It was not the usual style of this author.
Would you be willing to try another book from Lynsay Sands? Why or why not?
Yes, because I have always liked Lynsay's books and I love the Argeneau series, up to this point.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I'm sorry, but I was truly disappointed with this book. I love the Argeneau books but this one just did not fit in. This was far too dark and gory. I realize the importance of telling Basha's story, but I think it would have been much better if told in a shorter, novella format. Vampire Most Wanted seemed to just go on and on and on about Basha's early life and circumstances and in far too much detail. The joy and excitement of the vampires finding their lifemates was just not there, it was rushed through and treated as more of a side story.
As I said, I love the Argeneau series and I am definitely looking forward to the next one, and hoping that Vampire Most Wanted is not a shift in direction for this series.

Not quite as much humour as some of the others - bit darker; but still loved it.
