    Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn - when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them - the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost. Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift - and even lethal - justice.

    What made the experience of listening to Edge of Dawn the most enjoyable?

    The story was great and an excellent bridge to continue this series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I almost stopped listening several times because the narrator had some of the worst voices associated with characters! The main female sounded like she was a combination of Zooey Deschanel and an LA Valley girl. I kept waiting to hear "Oh my God, Becky, look at her butt," as the next line. The male voices sounded like she was speaking through gritted, clenched teeth with intention gruffness. All the male characters sounded the same except for the horrid Texas accent. Would never, ever buy anything by this narrator again.

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    Would you listen to The Secret again? Why?

    never, the scottish accent by susan duerdan is just horrendous. the women are ok, but the men...i swear they have to wipe down the microphone after a recording because she sounds like a spitting gollum!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    terrible, terrible accent. i couldn't stop thinking about how bad it was for the whole second half. the story was absolutely fine!
