I love coming a cross a great new series, and the first book in the "Venom" series did not disappoint. It was a great introduction into this world with vampires, shape shifters, and even gargoyles.
The characters were very likable; especially the members of the band! I can't wait to listen to the other stories to see how these characters develop.
One thing I really loved about this story is you get the POV from both the lead female and male characters and it's not just one person's point of view. I love stories that give more than one POV.
This is the first book I listened to narrated by Meghan Kelly, and thought she did a wonderful job. I will certainly be on the lookout for other books she narrates.
The only negative for me, and it's more of a preference, this series may be more of a YA, which is usually not my first pick.

Any additional comments?
This audiobook is full of supernatural characters! They are mostly vamps, but there is a lycan too. The story starts with Melody dying to hook up with Slade the lead singer of Venom....she is out for a girls night and does not come home the next day...her cousin Chelsea is concerned about her, so her and her friend go to the club Melody was at to kind of investigate....And that's where the interesting part begins.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I didn't care for the narration of this book. In fact, the narration spoiled it somewhat for me. All of the characters, male and female, sounded exactly like Kristin Bauer van Straten's character Pam in the TV show True Blood. I found it distracting and annoying. The only exception was the main character, Chelsea, who didn't have an accent just as strong as the others.
The story itself is quite good, hence the three stars. There is plenty of action and excitement. It is a very short read and it ends quite abruptly so I will have to read the next installment to find out what happens next. I just won't be listening to the audio version when I do.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The suspenseful ending left me wanting to find out what happens next.
