Would you consider the audio edition of The Immortal Rules to be better than the print version?
No. Each version has it's own unique experience. While I have not read the print version of "The Immortal Rules" I would expect a very good but different experience.
What other book might you compare The Immortal Rules to and why?
The Percy Jackson & the Olympians series would be a similar experience. While the subject matter isn't exactly the same it does feature a well written story with a great performance!
It also contains a very well fleshed out world with a solid basis on mythology. It just focuses on Greek Mythology over Vampire. So it may not appeal to those who are looking for a well written series about vampires. However, it will appeal to anyone interested in a good Fantasy series. And with it's solid voice acting, you will have weeks of entertainment!
Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?
Well, that would have to be the title character of Allison. I love strong female characters. I love even more that she is simply a strong character without having to justify why she is so strong. She just is. That's nice to see.
I also love how she struggles with what to do now that she is a vampire. "What is right? What is wrong? How should she be a vampire?" All nice to see in a character. She struggles with what is right and in the end chooses good.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I like how different this book is from many other Vampire stories. I haven't really seen a character struggle with morality so much. Allison tries to figure out what to do with this new "life" she has been given. How to deal with her "inner demon."
And as she encounters more and more "faces" of humanity, you begin to realize that there more demons out there than just her and the Ravids. Will she become a demon with a human face or become something completely different. This struggle reminds me of the struggle within us all. How we really aren't that different. Julie Kagawa shows us the best of our nature and our worst. Something we may not be willing to face on our own.

This is a book i wasnt too sure about. I really like Julie Kagawas writing style so i figure I'd just take a chance. Ended up listing to the first few minutes and changing my mind, but once i decided to finish the first chapter it was pretty good. Actually Great. This is one of the best book ive listened to this year. Once you get into this book it will be hard to put down. I highly recommend this book, and the second book in this series is even better. I will be listening to this book again.
