Donovan DeChance is a collector of ancient manuscripts and books, a practicing mage, and a private investigator. When, despite the finest in natural and supernatural security, a sexy and well-loved 300-year-old lady vampire is kidnapped right out from under her lover's nose, Donovan is called in to investigate.
He soon finds that there is much more to the case than a simple abduction when an unknown intruder invades his home and steals a very rare, very ancient manuscript. There will be no ransom for the kidnap victim, and if Donovan doesn't prevent an ancient, forbidden ritual from reaching its culmination, far more than a single vampire's undead existence will be at stake.
Calling on his lover and partner, Amethyst, and an odd assortment of contacts, informants, and connections, Donovan follows the ghostly trail of the kidnapper through a winding maze of intrigue - always a step behind - through magical battles, murders, and confrontations with a rogue band of young vampires intent on beating Donovan at his own game.
Vintage Soul is a dark urban supernatural mystery with a hint of romance. Set in an underground society, a city within the city of San Valencez, California, it opens portals to the unknown darkness that surrounds us. Fast-paced, strewn with clues, investigation, and magic, this is a book sure to slake the appetites of fans of mystery and the supernatural.
Welcome to the darkness; welcome to The DeChance Chronicles.

Audible has this listed as volume 1 of the DeChance Chronicles. That is incorrect, this is volume 2. Volume 1 is on Audible, correctly labeled as Volume 1, title Heart of a Dragon.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
In the Heart of a Dragon we learned about Donovan DeChance and how's he a collector of ancient books and manuscripts. He's also a practicing mage and a private investigator. When a three hundred year old female vampire is kidnapped Donovan is called in to investigate. Donovan soon believes this is not a simple abduction, it goes much, much deeper than that.
Corey Snow has done another stellar performance with Vintage Soul. He also narrated the first book to the series and he did a wonderful job on that story as well. I think Corey is a very talented narrator. I enjoy a narrator that changes their voice to make each characters identity known. I love being able to listen to a story and being able to recognize each person speaking. Corey does an exceptional job with distinguishing accents. I've listened to other stories that Corey's narrated and I highly recommend that you give one of the stories he narrates a try and David Wilson's The DeChance Chronicles is a great start.
Wow, what can I say about author David Niall Wilson that hasn't been said before? David created another extraordinary story and all the twist leave you guessing throughout. David used a great deal of detail when writing this story. David's writing style is solid and he makes sure to include all the details that are accentual to keeping your interest. I highly recommend The DeChance Chronicles or any of his other stories. I really recommend this series and I bet you'll love it as much as I have and if not remember Audibles return policy.
