    Suffering a horrific childhood as the son of a Bloodletter in his father's war camp, Vishous pledges death to members of the vampire-hunting Lessening Society. Vishous knows no love. He feels no emotion. He lives only to oppose the slayers. But after suffering a mortal wound, a human surgeon named Dr. Jane Whitcomb tends to him. Her ministrations, however, extend beyond his physical injury - and before long her tender hand has awakened feelings of pleasure that Vishous never dreamed existed.

    Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers.

    Every moment we got to see into the past was great

    Yes, i teared up a few times! I just love...love

    Against a teeming canvas of Borgia politics, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci come together to unmask an enigmatic serial killer, as we learn the secret history behind one of the most controversial works in the western canon, The Prince. Traveling across an Italy torn apart by war, they will enter a labyrinth of ancient superstition and erotic obsession to discover at its center a new face of evil - and a truth that will shake the foundations of western civilization.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Can't say that it was worth my time! I had a really hard time understanding the story past her strong accent! Which to me means that her accent was REALLY strong because I also havean accent which seems to make it easy for me to understand other accents, i this case I was lost!


    Would you recommend Advance First Chapter of The Malice of Fortune to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure... if it's free it's me! Plus, everybody is dif., they may understand her just fine.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Her accent was toooooo strong and she didnt seem to be putting a whole lot of emotion into it, while the story itself seemed to be so deep!


    Was Advance First Chapter of The Malice of Fortune worth the listening time?

    Yes, the story is rather interesting. I think I would rather read this one myself though.

    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

    I wouldnt say that! The narator is REALLY bad at all the slang used in the book, and I can definately relate to the terms used in the book better than he can! So reading it might be better in some ways than listening to it, however if you can move past that part than listening to it is great!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2?

    I loved when Rage couldnt seem to stay away from Mary after they had dinner the 1st time. He was willing to just talk to her through the door, what a deperado! Also How Zsadist reacted to Bella when she followed him to his room.. who knew he would react like that.. had me completely thrown aback!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Umm.. all of them!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Rage against the Machine


    Any additional comments?

    Beggin for money so I can buy more credits to get book 3!!!! Ahhhh love it !!!
