About the Book
“I'm not just a Princess, I'm a warrior.”
The thing is... I read it earlier this year and I've been waiting months to post this review. There's not a single other review on the audible page, and that just makes me feel awkward. But it's been almost a year since I was given the audiobook, so I couldn't really wait any longer.
If you are interested in this story I highly recommend you read the book. I kept up with my ebook version and read along as I was listening to the audio. Although I have my issues with the written version of this story, it's much easier to deal with than Sallie Downing's narration. She has very little emotion or expression and made the most dramatic parts of the story underwhelming. It was incredibly disappointing. Had I not already promised I'd review the audio, I'd have just stopped it and gone straight to the ebook.
I will say this about Blood Purple, it's got an interesting concept. I liked the beginning, it had a strong opening. It kept me wanting to continue the story, even during the many parts of incoherence and repetition. And I found the ending to just be downright awkward. I am debating finishing the series, but via ebook form. I will be avoiding any other audiobooks narrated by Sallie Downing.
