Just finished reading this last night and its an awesome read. My only complaint is that I have to wait 6 months to continue reading. An awesome cliff hanger at the end wets my appetite even more. I haven't listened to the audio yet, but cant wait to do that.
Dag nabbit lost my review, but I'll do it again. I think I've told Osk most of this anyways, but I'm going to make it shorter this time around.
Story, really enjoyed it and I think others who like vampires and such would too. While it was a short read I was satified with the Beg, Mid, and End this provided. It did have a nice cliffhanger but I felt this short story held its own.
Formatting, was good. Standard paragraphs and such. Liked Chapter fonts. Loved Werner's interiors. I think that was a great touch and I hope Werner does some more for the next installment. I though that even though it was short character development was good. It gave enough characterization that you get a good feel for the characters. None are really brushed over and none just outright overpower either. I will have to say that Thorn is my fav.
I honestly haven't finished the audio but I have listened for a nice little bit. I love the audio great job by everyone and I think its a great addition. I like it too because it will be a great way to refresh my memory when the second episode comes around.
Critiques? Hmmm Something about the initial cover of the book throws me off. I think its the Flesh colored word flesh on a white background. Maybe black would have been better? I also go back and forth as to if I like the 'box frame' for the text. Normally I think I wouldnt' like it but because of the interior art I think it works well.
Thats really a small issue though and can't think of anything else. I really hope that it keeps up for the second installment.

I like Thorn, too, mainly because there's a lot that can be done with him in the next installments. That was a hard role to cast in the audio portion, too, but I have to say that the actor I got to do it (Tom Shanklin) really got the idea of the character right. The scene with him and Miranda near the end is probably my favorite moment of audio.
