Publisher's Summary

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir - half-human, half-vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. So far, Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing.
Back home in Brooklyn, after the demise of her insane uncle Dracula, Dory is hoping her life is about to calm down. But then she gets some visitors. A friend wants Dory's help in finding a magical Fey relic, and the gorgeous vampire, Louis-Cesare, is desperate to find his former mistress Christine.
Dory and Louis-Cesare quickly discover that the same master vampire Christine is bound to is also rumored to be in possession of the relic. But when the master vampire turns up dead, they realize that there's more at stake than a missing mistress. Someone is killing vampire Senate members, and if Dory and Louis-Cesare can't stop the murderer, they may be next.

Love the Book, Hate the Narrator

How could the performance have been better?

This narrator doesn't know simple words, for example, she insists on using the word "fort" for "forte" which should be pronounced for-tay for heavens sake. That drives me insane and there are others. She didn't even try to sound similar to the characters from the Cassie Palmer books. I hadn't planned to listen again but I love the story so much, I had to buy it and then fussed at myself all the way through for having done so. I wish I had bought the nook version.

loved it!

Where does Death's Mistress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The narrator does a good job keeping voices steady throughout there are a few slip ups but well done. The plot is winding and makes you pay attention. The book makes you think which few do.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Dorina is a great leading lady. She doesn't fit any mould and is strong but still vulnerable.


What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

I really love her interpretation of Ray. The only voice that I don't care for is Mircea. Her overall performance is really good. She stays steady for everything but a few slips.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes.


Any additional comments?

This book is part of a series and is parallel to another series you need to listen to them all to really appreciate the author she is amazing and the plot is ever twisting.
