Publisher's Summary

Sam may be the Iblis, but she is also an imp with a price on her head. The powerful demon, Haagenti, won't rest until she's dragged back to Hel for "punishment". Sam knows she can't face Haagenti and win, so when an Elf Lord offers to eliminate the demon in return for her help, Sam jumps at the chance. It's a simple job - find and retrieve a half-breed monster dead or alive. But finding this demon/elf hybrid isn't proving easy and time is running out.

Very good voice acting and plot

I'm really loving this series, it is a good twist to have a demon main character as it makes the usual good v evil trope more interesting.

Great book... Sound editing was annoying

I'm enjoying this series a lot. The book was great can't wait for another. I laughed so hard when she admitted to wearing a decapitated head she was studying, on top of hers when no one was there. That moment sticks out.

Narrator is good, but whoever cut it up and put 7-10 second pauses between each damn thought needs a smack to the head. It was very distracting. I thought the app shut off a couple times when she just stopped talking... Nope. Just bad editing. A lot of times you'd hear the narrator swallow in those pauses, also.

I still listened and finished it happily. I would still recommend.

Series is growing on me.

Can a demon learn to curb her darker side? Sam does have a hard time with this, she just wants to have fun, but the angels, demons, elves and humans keep demanding her time, energy, and blood. If it can go wrong, it will. This book isn't quite as funny as the last book, but the boom stick part was my favorite. The world building is intriguing and events have spiraled out of control for Sam, plus her to do list keeps getting longer and longer. This series is not for everyone. There are a few distasteful parts that could turn you off the story, luckily the plot gets better over time and this story is about a demon. I did end up listening to the story on fast speed because the narrator was so slow that it drove me nuts. I normally can ignore the narrator flaws, all but being slow this puts me to sleep.

Love it-give me the next one....

What did you love best about Elven Blood?

I love that this FEMALE demon is straight forward, frank and to the point. As a different species she sees things in a simple and more logic way, which reminds me of European cultures. No fluff, no read between the lines or 'take a hint'...just straight to the point!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Elven Blood?

I loved the more detailed introduction of her foster-brother and sister demons, which made them more relateable as well. Already love Sam the way she is by now but now we also enjoy the different layers of skill and talent of her demon siblings. And of course, love the pure and simple romance they have going where I often forget that they are different species and yet the beauty of that shines through as well!

What does Angela Rysk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I just love that 1. they picked someone new for this series, 2. totally different to other readers....I admit I had to get used to her in the first book but by the end I was hooked.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, absolutely! I could not get enough of it.

Any additional comments?

When is the next one recorded?

Book 3 is even better than the first 2

I realized that I never added my reviews to Audible for this series so I am correcting that now.
Originally reviewed on: 01/27/2017
Elven Blood is book 3 of the Imp series and so far it is my favorite. The stories have gotten increasingly better with each book. There is a bit of a love triangle forming between Sam, her human boyfriend, Wyatt, and Angel, Gregory. I'm really interested in seeing how that develops. Even though I adore Wyatt, I'm hoping that Sam and Gregory will end up together but in such a way where Wyatt is okay.
I'm looking forward to continuing this series. I'm devouring them at this point.
I added the wispersync audible narration to this book but the same narrator does this whole series and I really dislike her performance more with each book. Her voices and accents don't work for these characters and this story. I don't think I can tolerate more at this point so I'll just stick to reading and find something else to occupy my work commute.

I LOVE this series!

First I’ll say that I’ve read the whole series on kindle but when I saw that they were on audible too, I jumped at the chance to revisit this amazing series. I love Sam and all her crazy antics. She’s exactly what I think a real imp would be like. Seeing her grow and become stronger as an imp (and as the Ha-Satan) is so much fun. All of her characters have depth to the point that you really want to know that they will be okay or make the right decisions. I’m loving getting to know them all again! I really, really like Angela Rysk as a narrator. The deep male voices are a little funny, but I love her demon voices. She has a unique tone that adds fun and sass to her characters. There are occasional weird pauses in odd places that threw me off every now and then but otherwise I just can’t say enough good things about both the book and the narration. Keep ‘me coming!!

No spoilers

Great series. MS Dunbar has done a fantastic job at writing a really good series. Set in a world with all kinds of characters, suspense, and laughter. The narration of MS Ryan was done very well a truly good story teller. Highly recommend.

Elven Blood rocks, little cockroach changing!

Samantha keeps changing little by little until she faces her fears with the help of her friends, even though she still retains her humorous ways of being an imp.

Series gets better and better

Where does Elven Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Best of the Imp series the whole series is growing on me but still not quite a match for JaneYellowrock or Mercy Thompson. It's got some nice twists though

Who was your favorite character and why?

Has to be Sam a demon with a conscience but who really rocks when she needs to she makes me laugh and care for her. Most of the other Characters are pretty good too

Would you listen to another book narrated by Angela Rysk?

Downloading the next Imp book now. She is growing on me. I hated her narration on the first book, tolerated it on the second and actually enjoyed it with this one. Hard to imagine anyone else doing them now

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. Some bits are hilarious. Some bits tug a bit at the emotions saying goodbye to Wyatt whist dressed as The Man With No Name from The Good The Bad and the Ugly managed both at the same time

Any additional comments?

If you liked books one and two you will love this. Just gets better

Brilliant!!

Another excellent listen. Love Deborah's sense of humour. Angela rhysk is the perfect narrator for the naughty but ultimately moral imp stories
