Christian Basdous is someone I won't listen to again. He just reads with no inflections. There are so many out there who could do a much better job reading Rollins books .
The story is good, but a little shallow.
I am a huge fan of Rollins, but I'll pass going forward.
I don't like vampire books and didn't know this was one by the description.
71 year old avid reader using either my eyes or ears. I make earrings that I donate to shelters and while I work, I listen to wonderful books. I also keep in mind that you have to kiss frogs to find princes - time's too short to bother with losers.
I really liked the story, although you REALLY have to suspend disbelief. The one drawback is that it doesn't end. You need to read the next book to tie up lots of very loose ends. I don't think this has to discourage you, just be warned.
Better story line. The story went nowhere.
The narrator tried too hard. Every sentence he read was like the world was coming to an end. Just read the book normally --- too much hyperbole.
Impatience -- wanting it to end already -- yeah, I know I could have just stopped listened but wanted to just finish it.
Save your money.
Truly high, it travels through history has immortals of all kinds, and honors Christ.

If you like James Rollins, Clive Cussler and the Preston and Child novels you will find this highly entertaining.
I have enjoyed books from this author before. I looked forward to another good series. While the story was good, the narrator's bizarre inflections in the oddest places was so annoying. Then it got to be a real distraction as you listened anticipating some weird vocal and missed the actual story.
I hope so, as it had an open ending for another book. But NOT with Baskous as narrator.
The accents very funny sometimes
Very engaging and thought provoking book; makes you ask, What if?
I love James Rollins work. Usually can't wait for his next book to come out. Couldn't stand it and didn't even finish it, to me it was that bad!
Rollins yes, the two of them together, no.
He was fine, it was the story I didn't like, at all.
The story was convoluted in the extreme and many unrealistic characters. Not sure if the audience was intended to be the Twilight Crowd. The reader seemed to be trying to imitate an Eastern European accent
I have listened to many of James Rollins previous stories (Sigma Series) and enjoyed. Will listen to him again but not this new series
