Publisher's Summary

My name's Quinn. If you buy into my reputation, I'm the most notorious demon hunter in New England. But rumors of my badassery have been slightly exaggerated. Instead of having kung-fu skills and a closet full of medieval weapons, I'm an ex-junkie with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. Or the right place at the wrong time. Or…whatever. Wanted for crimes against inhumanity I (mostly) didn't commit, I was nearly a midnight snack for a werewolf until I was "saved" by a vampire calling itself the Bride of Quiet. Already cursed by a werewolf bite, the vamp took a pint out of me too. So now…now, well, you wouldn't think it could get worse, but you'd be dead wrong.

Great Narration, Subpar Book

I was a big Caitlin Kiernan fan way back when and to this day Silk remains one of my all-time favorite books. When I heard about Blood Oranges and read reviews declaring it a great read, I was excited to delve into Ms. Kiernan's urban fantasy world under the name Kathleen Tierney. If only Blood Oranges was as good as I had hoped.

Blood Oranges was dark, gritty, had somewhat creative mythology, and was brilliantly narrated (by the fangtabulous Amber Benson) but those are the only positive things I can say about it. It's hard to root for an urban fantasy "heroine" with zero redeeming qualities and it's even harder to enjoy said book when you don't like most of the secondary characters. FYI, you can give a junkie redeeming qualities. Stacia Kane certainly did it with Chess in her impressive and under-appreciated Downside Ghosts series.

Siobhan Quinn was nothing more than a foul mouthed (I do not have an issue with language, I'm just describing her and making a point), irritating, recently turned girl who replaced one addiction for another. I thought I'd grow to like her but I just didn't. Like I said, Quinn had no redeeming qualities whatsoever and she did not really grow as a character throughout the book.

I give the narration of Blood Oranges 5 stars and will admit that it's the only reason I stuck with the book. Hearing Amber Benson read lines and/or paragraphs about Buffy the Vampire Slayer was beyond awesome and had my inner fangirl squeeing like a freak. For those not in the know, Amber Benson played the witch, Tara, on Buffy. The book itself, was little more than a 2 star read for me. It was just okay. Unless I run out of things to read, I won't be continuing on with the Siobhan Quinn series no matter how much I loved the narration.

This book is garbage

Not sure what possessed me to buy this book. I was looking for a new urban fantasy series to immerse myself in, unfortunately this series was so far off the mark. Audible really needs to work on its recommendation algorithm.

Handle with caution

Picked this one up mainly for the reader, Amber Benson. And the read is fine -- a little hectic perhaps, but that is in keeping with the material.

Sadly, this book turned out to be not for me. It is first-person narration (an ongoing rant and whinge, really), and the character is thoroughly unpleasant. As is the world in general. Not so much grimdark as gross-out disgusting. A lot of the descriptive passages are simply vile. Is it spoilerish to mention vomiting of bone and guts after our heroine becomes both a vampire and a loup-garou? Maybe. Forget I said anything. The plot involved rather too much obfuscation for my liking. Long tunnel, no light at all. DNF.
