Vampires and Fae
Years ago I read this book before I knew anything about posting ireviews. Now that I’ve listened to the audiobook, I’m writing the review for both. This is one of my favorite books. Well, Kristen is one of my favorite authors. Harlow is in trouble and needs her mom’s help. She would also like to know the identity of her father. This is what keeps her away from her mother Olivia. Harlow can read things when she touches them. She wears gloves all the time. Her mom Olivia is a very famous movie star from the past. When vampires murder her, Harlow’s priorities change. Now she is on the hunt for the killer. There’s so much I want to say but I don’t want to ruin any of it.
The narrator is so amazing that words just can’t describe. He hits all the different accents of New Orleans. Can’t wait to hear him again.
