For those of you who prefer your vampires to be sparky, sarcastic, cliché-repellant, and kick-a**, look no further than Jessica Slate. She also has a pretty good love life, which helps her be anything but a woeful damsel torn between lovers, or chaste until she can decide. Yeah, that's definitely not this book. This book turns vampire novels on their heads and pokes them with a stick. It's like a fantasy/adventure/romance story, but somehow still a vampire novel despite defying everything else that drags down the genre. It really is like JS Chancellor read hundreds of vamp books, watched a ton of bad sci-fi flicks, then decided to write a book that succeeds in avoiding, and frequently poking fun at (and sometimes outright mocking) everything that makes your eyes roll at the cheesiness, all without taking itself too seriously. It still has its fair share of weighty moments, but the natural tension of a good story, regardless of genre, is present, but hand in hand with what can only be described as good fun.

If you could sum up Icarus in three words, what would they be?
Crazy amazing heroine!
What did you like best about this story?
Jessica. I just love her! Her wit is just great, love her devotion to her family, and did I mention that wit? Too cool.
What does Rachel Anslover bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Really great, distinguishable voices.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
My biggest problem with the story is the length. I felt there were too many issues. Jessica overcomes this problem, then the next. Then the next. Then the next. I think if the writer would've cut out one or two of the issues, it would make for a better book. There is nothing worse than thinking, it's not over yet? All in all though, great read!
