    Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern...until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

    Overall

    This is a great story and I love the sound of the narrator's voice, but there were just two things wrong with the audio. About three and a half hours through part one, you hear Max Bellmore say: "Sorry I'll do that last part again." And the editor gives him the go-ahead before he rereads the sentence. Same thing about three and a half hours through the second download. The editor suddenly says: "Just give me the end." And Bellmore agrees and redoes the sentence.

    Not a big deal, I thought it was more funny than anything else. First time I heard it I laughed and listened to it again. I was just a bit shocked that this happened twice in the same audio book. I always thought someone listened to these all the way through before they were sent out.

    But again, not a big deal, doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the book, which is a great story in an amazing series, and I still think Bellmore's voice is perfect for all the characters :)

    It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians - including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian!

    "Amazing with one small flaw"
    Overall

    A great story, I had to listen to it after listening to Vampire Academy, hooked on Rose and Dimitri's not quite there relationship. The only problem I had was that the new narrator doesn't do Dimitri's accent, and every once in a while, when there are no tags, I can't tell if he's talking or if it's another adult.

    It doesn't take away from the story's appeal though, which is why I gave the author a five star and am getting the next book
