Listened for Fun (Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: (ranged) 3.5 to 4.5
Character Rating: (ranged) 3.5 to 4.5

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: This is the second set of V-Wars stories that I have listened too and I am fascinated by them. This one particularly delved into the different types of “V’s” and that appealed to the history lover in me (great cultural and ethnic tie-ins).

Cassandra Campbell

Cassandra has been on my go-to narrators list for a long time. This year though she narrated probably my favorite performance by her: Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater. She did such a good job and gave me chills with her performance. She narrates a bunch of different genres: cozy mysteries, romance, fiction. She really is very good at fleshing out characters and bringing them to life. She was part of The Help audiobook (which is brilliant BTW) and V-Wars both of them (which I LOVED). She has done so many audiobooks that I adore that I couldn’t possibly list them all. You really should check her out 🙂 On my Christmas Wishlist narrated by her: The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon!

First Thought when Finished: Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater was everything I have come to expect (in a brilliant kind of way) when cracking open a book by her: emotional, twisted, and at the core a story about overcoming life circumstances. LOVED IT!
