    Luca Ambrus is a rare breed: vampire from birth, begotten by vampire parents, blood born. He is also an agent of the Council - the centuries-old cabal that governs vampirekind, preserving their secrecy and destroying those who betray them.

    RRWS says: "Good start for a series"
    "Great...Great....Great!"
    Overall

    This book was a little slow at first, probably because it is a first in the series. Once it got started it was great. One of the best Linda Howard books ever. She did a fabulous job with this one. Keep listening if you think it is slow at first. It gets better.

    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    Stacy says: "A Whole New Take on Vampire Mythology"
    "Wow... I listened to the whole thing!"
    Overall

    This was one of the worst audio books I have listened to and I am not that picky. The story line was okay. It was much cheesier than I expected and I like a little cheesiness. The worst part was the narrator. It seemed she couldnt keep her voices straight and she would emphasize words that did not need to be emphasized. I doubt that I will listen to anymore of this series or read more from the author. The narrator killed it for me.

    This extraordinary memoir from Jeannette Walls is a stirring and distinctive story that has won tremendous critical acclaim. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly applauds the author's "fantastic storytelling knack", saying, "Walls doesn't pull her punches...in this excellent, unusual book."

    Tracie says: "Stayed Awake Until 5 am to Finish!!!"
    "The Glass Castle is going to be a clasic!"
    Overall

    This is one of the better books that I have read- especially for a memoir. Because of this compelling story of overcoming your upbringing, I would recommend this book to anyone who has had struggles or difficulties in their life. Walls truly shows that each person has his or her own power to determine their destiny.
