Amaliya Vezorak never believed in happy endings....
When Amaliya harnessed her necromancer powers to defeat her greatest enemy, she believed she had finally found a happy ending with Cian, her lover and the master of Austin. That happiness is short-lived when the vampire ruling over San Antonio attempts a takeover of Austin in order to capture Amaliya and use her power for his own devices.
To make matters worse, Samantha, Cian's ex-fiancée, is seeing ghosts, the untested vampire hunters of Austin are running scared as a supernatural war looms, a mysterious man is hunting Amaliya with the help of her one time lover, Pete, and Racho?, the Summoner's favorite progeny, appears to be out for revenge.
When Amaliya's grandmother, a powerful medium, experiences terrible visions that reveal there is another necromancer vampire and she is crying out for help, Amaliya realizes happy endings do not come easily....

Amaliya's universe has expanded in this sequel. Other characters such as Samantha get more screen time as their characters have evolved due to the actions from the first instalment, which means we don't get as much Amaliya time which I did miss as I enjoy her character so much. Samantha & Amaliya have become more linked to each other & can't wait to see where it leads in book 3. New characters are introduced to help deal with the fall out of The Summoner & what his final plan is.
There were parts where it did jump between characters a little to choppy , did get confused for a second. But over all did really enjoy & ready to start listening to book 3.
"Equally great as the first audiobook! More please."
I love it when a series can maintain its momentum and keep me drawn in with each audiobook listen. And that's definitely happening big time in this series. Book 2 of pretty when she dies: pretty when she kills is a solid truly engaging listen. Such a nice unique spin on vampiric abilities and story line, makes for creative twists and an awesome vampiric soap opera. The narrator continues to impress. Please bring the rest of this series books to audiobook version. I m so excited and look forward to this. And make this series appear on screen too!
"Surprise Plot Twists!"
The plot twists were well done and I wasn't expecting a return of certain characters. The detailed areas of planning for fights and traveling could move along a little faster though.
"A great sequel!"
It's up there definitely in the top 50 out of about 300!
My life as a White trash Zombie by Diana Rowland
Both character are learning to live with their new circumstances!
I'm looking forward to book 3! I wish it wasn't just a trilogy!
"Dont buy any books to this series."
I bought the first book, it had some problems. I thought I was being overly critical so i decided to give the second try. That was a mistake. There were too many characters. I had to restart one chapter 3 times because I could not figure out who was who. I would hear the narrator say 2 lines and then after the fact realize it's 2 different people. When that was not happening I was getting lost inside the writer's schizophrenic storyline jumping from one group of characters to another. I think the final straw for me was some mysterious ring that was inserted into the story inorder to con us into thinking all of the past random scenes were leading up to this "planed" part of the book. It was just stupid. I am sorry for being so harsh but it was. Someone mentions a ring one other time then all the sudden it's like the most important thing ever. I turned off the book without finishing it.
"UM? What went wrong??"
I really enjoyed the first book. I can't seem to put my finger on what went wrong with this one.
Perhaps dry narrator....not much of a mystery...Seems rushed without much content.
I had trouble staying interested. I went to several different books before I finely finished it.
I guess it might be worth a listen. I wouldn't use a credit tho. Maybe BOGO or a sale.
"Fairly average to be honest."
The actions of the main characters family members would be what I'd change. They charge off with a plan that just wasn't believable to me, and trusting someone with a story that sounded to good to be true. Not to mention not even considering to ask the MC what she wanted.This got covered by convenient lack of cell service so they couldn't talk to her. They were on the road for hours and I'm sure Texas is not that lousy for cell coverage that they would have zero coverage for the whole trip. They even had rather weak reasons they could not use a landline, and no mention of looking for a payphone on the trip.
Not really. Story had too many flat spots where it didn't seem to be going anywhere. I think that for me the reason was that the book was short but had many characters in different locations. This meant that it all felt a bit weird on time line and not enough time for each character group to really shine or have a decent plot point.
I have listened to a couple of hers. Her character voices and acting was fine, but I really wasn't a fan of her narrative narration. She delivers it all pretty flatly and too quickly as well I thought. And I didn't understand why. She was fine with the voices but did very little changes of pace in the narrative, which makes the narrative feel flat and dull.
Just about. It's not bad, it's not good. Fairly average really and not the authors best work in my opinion.
