Description

Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire's private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Svente vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like.

Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself. The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared's co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Svente female.

Worth the Wait!!

I've been waiting for this story to become "Audible" since I first read this story on my Kindle several years ago (and I re-read too). Being American, I had some "editing" issues but the story was really interesting and a new twist on vampire "life." There are more stories with Sam and Jared that are totally worth reading and then waiting for the Audible version. Praise for whoever decided to use a male and female to read Sam's and Jared's parts, IT WAS PERFECT. So, Great Story (get a copy) and enjoy the trip to an island.

Here Be Feminists Who Hate Women

I read this ebook a few months back and liked it well enough but it did not withstand the test of a repeat experience. The Main character, Sam, sets herself up as some great bastion of feminine strength and idealism fighting the vampire patriarchy yet misses no opportunity to disparage the other women in the book. Nary a chapter goes by that she doesn't sneeringly compare herself to the hero's consort. The story had potential, but Sam's attitude toward other women killed it for me.

Justine Eyre's voice work was quite good. However, P.J. Ochlan should stay far, far away from any roles involving a British accent.

Beyond 10 stars

I read this years ago, fell in love with the book and then the series! I have since read all of Ms Wright’s books. But this series and this book is a favorite. Beyond thrilled to see the audible version. Can’t wait to see the rest. Please! I have listened to this more than 4 times since I got it and I have not gotten tired of it yet. Narration is excellent. All the right emotions are expressed. Thank you for the audible version. Please do the rest.

I don't find sexism to particularly a turn on.

In the end, Jared doesn't change. He's still a sexist, and his 'love' for Sam isn't based on respect, but lust. I find his character to be repulsive even, and no self-respecting woman like Sam would ever allow herself to be owned by a sexist butthole like Jared. I found the character development to be very weak and the final battle at the end was rushed. There were a couple more chapters of words that could have been included to really make the world and the characters better, but they were left out. The intimate scenes weren't very exciting, and Jared's disrespect for Sam is highlighted in these scenes. Overall, I thought this book was poirly written and instead of being lost in a romance, I was distracted by all the sexism taking place.

Male narrator just okay

The female narrator is enjoyable, but the male narrator is a little unemotional, and his attempt at female characters is between meh and painful.
The story was good. Looking forward to continuing with these characters.
This was a little tamer than most Suzanne Wright books, but only a little.
Love the training scenes with the squad. This world of vampires and their gifts leaves plenty of room for world and story building. Eager to see where it goes.

So Happy!

True story! I emailed SW last yr asked if she was going to put this on audible and I was so surprised when she emailed back but unfortunately at the time the answer was no because of all the different accents. so imagine my surprise when I saw it finally was! almost fell out my seat! the performance wasn't great but it wasnt bad either. I was able to listen it. can't wait for the other's!

GREAT!!

Suzanne Wright is one of my favorite authors. this book was amazing I definitely have to listen to it again since there so many new characters I'm pretty sure she'll follow each character like the rest of her books so I need to make sure I know who has what powers. I really enjoyed how Susan makes her female characters very strong. Sam and Jared have a very funny relationship definitely foreplay and a lot of bickering. I love that Sammy is a strong female sassy attitude hold her own grounds even though she's hurting inside never shows her weak side. definitely a credit to use I can't wait till the next one!! also narrators did an amazing job

Can’t get enough of Sam and Jared!

I’m a huge Suzanne Wright fan. I own all of her ebooks, a couple of paperbacks and quite a bit of audiobooks (Phoenix Pack and Mercury Pack).

I’ve been waiting a long time for Here Be Sexist Vampires to become an audiobook. It was the very first SW book I ever read so it holds a special place in my heart. I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed!! I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about two narrators since the books I listen to usually contain only one. But I love it! I love that Sam had her British accent and Jared had his American one. They really brought the characters to life!
I was so excited to have this book that I couldn’t even wait for a credit. I bought it straight out. I’m eagerly waiting for the next book to be released!! Though I’ve read them and know what happens, it’s like I’m experiencing them for the first time all over again! I love it!!

A little bit of both

I read this book ages ago, in fact I’ve read the whole series thus far - eagerly awaiting the next book. I had asked the author once if she had plans to make this series into audiobooks, and she said (at the time) that it would be too hard because it has A LOT of different characters and a few of them had different accents. Yeah, fast forward to this, and she was right.

Let me start by saying that it would be really hard for a narrator to do this book. I loved the way the female narrator brought Sam forward, as well as most of the male characters and big kudos on the accents. However, I absolutely HATED the way she did Fletcher. Now the male narrator did a great job too, but I HATED the way he did Sam. Trying to lighten his voice and adding a British accent was not working for him. I did really like the way he did Fletcher though. See - one narrator had him sounding like he was on a major sugar high, while the other was just normal.

Still, it’s a fantastic book, very well written, well performed by the narrators for the most part, I quite enjoyed it. I do hope the rest of the series ends up in audio as well.

Finally!!

Suzanne Wright is one of my favorite authors. Her series are all fantastic and I eagerly await the release of each new title. I’ve read this book several times and was so excited when I saw it on Audible. I really enjoyed the narrators and the way they brought the story to life. I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next story to be released.
