Librarian. Assassin. Vampire.
Amber Fang enjoys life's simple pleasures - a good book, a glass of wine and, of course, a great meal.
Raised to eat ethically, Amber dines only on delicious, cold-blooded killers. But being sure they’re actually killers takes time… research… patience.
It’s a good thing Amber’s a librarian. Her extraordinary skills help her hunt down her prey, seek out other vampires, and stay on the trail of her mother, missing now for two years. One day she stalks a rather tasty-looking murderer and things get messy. Very messy. Amber, the hunter, becomes the hunted.
And then, from out of nowhere, the perfect job offer: Assassin. She’d be paid to eat the world’s worst butchers. How ideal.
Until it isn’t.
Amber Fang is the first book in a new action and adventure vampire series by bestselling author Arthur Slade. It’s a mind-bending mix of full throttle action with a pinch of comedy and a dash of romance, reminiscent of Kelley Armstrong, Christopher Moore and C.N. Crawford.

*I was given a code for this audio book to be honestly reviewed*
This was pretty fun entertaining, and I actually give the book itself 3.5. Amber is a fun character, I love, love, love her sass! I was a little bored at the beginning, but was drawn in and laughing right after Dermot (Sorry, I have no idea if I spelled that correctly!) arrived. I laughed more than once through the rest of the book!
The narration....well, I just wasn't a fan. Her voice is fine and all, I just couldn't get into the story as well I would have liked to, as her voice didn't match what you think of when someone is telling you a story. It wasn't all bad, though. Sometimes the stresses seemed off of what it felt it should be, but she had the sassy come backs sounding just right!
Overall, I enjoyed the few hours it took to listen to this, and I'm intrigued enough to definitely want to hear the next one.
