Summary

Life isn't easy for Detective Raven Storm. Her best friend was recently killed and dismembered, her latest case ended with her partner in intensive care, and her mother, the vampiric Mistress of the City, is playing matchmaker...again. The last thing she wants is another bizarre murder case with a partner she doesn't know. But that is exactly what she gets when she is handed the enigmatic case of Nathan King, who was found in his car with a gaping hole where his stomach should be.

Soon, Raven is unraveling a mystery that leads her deep into the city's preternatural underworld, and into the arms of a sexy vampire she barely knows, but whose heart she seeks in the darkness.

An Action Packed Thriller!

This Is A Good Overall Performance! The Story Is Excellent And The Plot Was Intricate Enough To Keep The Mysteries Of The Vampire World On The Edge Of Your Seat! Storm Is An Official Bad Ass And I'm Definitely Looking Forward To More Audio Books About Her And This Narrator...

Supernatural murder mystery

This story is set in a contemporary context, where our heroine is a detective, but she is also half vampire. An ongoing mystery with all sorts of paranormal twists. It reminds me a bit of the author Laurall K. Hamilton--but different.
I was given this book free for an unbias review.
I enjoyed it.

Enjoyed this book

Supernaturals, blood, lust, . A cop who is also a vampire. Mystery, love interest. Strong female, Colombo sidekick bringing down the bad guys. Interesting read. Fun. I listened in Audible.

Just One More Thing...

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I loved Columbo. The TV show and character, of course. Raven’s newest partner, Levac, is a dead ringer for Columbo. Messy eater, trench coat sloppy, more intelligent than he projects. A perfect, quiet sidekick for Raven, who has her hands full keeping the supernatural hidden while investigating a supernatural crime. I like that she’s able to balance a personal life with her intensive work demand, albeit, usually late for anything social. Add a lover, Francois, in a rich, dark and spooky Chicago backdrop, and the story is a winner.

Suzanne Fortin has perfect pronunciation giving clarity and great cadence and voices. Great job there.

Going to be a great series!
Two Thumbs High Up!

Stormrise

Stormrise tells the story of Raven Storm and her adventures at trying to solve her most recent murder case while juggling a new romance. It holds your attention and is a great Book 1. The narrator does a good job bringing the story to life. I look forward to more from this Author and narrator.

Fun new Urban Fantasy Series

This was a good introduction to an Urban Fantasy series I hadn't seen before. It takes place in Chicago and has a couple solid twists. I am interested in seeing how the series develops over time.

The narrator does a good job with the different characters.

Weak characters and world building.

What could Skye Knizley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

There's practically no world building in this book. It felt like we outright thrown into this fantasy world without much of an introduction. All the characters are also underdeveloped and unrelatable. I didn't connect with any of them and thus didn't enjoying listening to their story. More than a supernatural thriller, this sounded like a halfhearted romance.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Suzanne T. Fortin did a marvelous job with the narration. Each character had a distinct and believable voice and she emoted the different emotions well. She did well with the content given to her. It's the story itself that fails.

Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
