Mirren Kincaid remembers the vampire he used to be - and he’s not going back. As the Slayer, Mirren served the Vampire Tribunal as its most creative and ruthless executioner. Then he refused a kill order and eventually found himself the protector and second-in-command of the peaceful enclave of Penton, Alabama. As civil war threatens to break out in the vampire world over the scarcity of untainted human blood, the Tribunal wants its slayer back - and has sent a beautiful witch to retrieve him.
Descended from a powerful shaman, Glory Cummings is meant to restore Mirren to his bloodthirsty ways as the Tribunal’s assassin. But Glory doesn’t see a killer when she looks at Mirren; she sees a vampire haunted by his past. Though her mission is to turn him into a monster, she hopes her magic touch can heal the man she’s suddenly falling for. But the Tribunal has never looked kindly upon defiance.

I have just finished listening to this wonderful vampire series which has everything in it and just keeps getting better. It has passion and romance, a mind blowing plot that is filled with surprises and twists, awesome characters that you will love ....... and some you'll hate and an ending that will have you begging for the next book.
Once I started this book I just couldn't stop listening until it's climatic ending and I believe the next book Omega (Will's story) won't be out until next February so my only question now is ........ what can I possibly follow this book with?
Worth a credit? I'm a huge paranormal/romance fan and it ABSOLUTELY hit all my buttons - so that would be a YES.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I LOVED this one! This is definitely worth a credit and then some. There are so many reasons why I liked this book.
1. Great heroine. She was smart, tough and full of spunk.
2. Great hero. He was sexy, strong and very complex.
3. Good story and full of action.
4. Couldn't stop listening
5. Can't wait for the next book ( already pre- ordered)
This one was even better then the first book. 5 stars all around!!
I love books, they have been a part of my life since I was in middle school.
Let me first start by saying that I loved this book. I read Redemption first and instantly was caught up in the rapture that is Penton. I enjoyed that fact that isn’t your typically vampire series. The twist of the storyline kept me listening, going back and re -listening to chapters in the book.
What can I say about Mirren? He is strong, mysterious, gorgeous and extremely passionate. Just the very thought of him, makes me wish I was in Penton, AL. Glory is an outspoken, take charge, compassionate woman. The romance that sparks between Mirren and Glory is quite electric.
My only problem with this book is the narrator. Angela did a fantastic job in the first book. I wish she was doing the reading in this book. Amy didn’t have the depth that Angela voice did. I hope for the third book, Angela is back as the narrator.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
I never thought a second book of any series can top the first.. but this one definitely did it!
What i love about this book:
1.) The heroine is totally unpredictable (in a good way) not at all cliche. She's witty, funny, smart, independent and stubborn all for the right reasons.
2.) The story is also unpredictable (In a totally good way also) it kept me guessing the whole time...
3.) The hero has a quality that i cant put a finger on. He's mysterious and yet predictable at times, strong and manly but very very sweet, dominant but also submissive... So cute and so.. oh so.. sexy!
4.) the sex scenes are so exciting and so sweet!
5.) Actions packed
6.) How both hero and heroine challenged each other and left me wanting more!
I can't wait for the third book! The story of William!! Yay...
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Another great story carried on from the 1st book in this series. Unfortunately the Narrator, Amy McFadden, was not good. Susannah Sandlin should of used the Narrator in the fist book, Angela Dawe, she was excellent. . A great story line once again but ruined by the narrator. Please go back to Angela for the 3rd book.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Absolution is an excellent, fun read! The characters are complicated enough to be interesting, especially Mirren, but not so complicated as to be frustrating or confusing. The love story is believable and based in Glory and Mirren's personalities.
The book is just the right mix of action and more action, with enough hot sex to get it an R rating, at least. Sizzling, but not overdone. The Penton vampire story line is different - yeah! - with enough politics but not too much, really evil evil, and enough twists to keep you guessing who'll make it to the end.
Susannah Sandlin has really come into her writing power with this book. I can't wait for the continuation of the saga. Do yourself a favor, and buy this book. Then settle in for a fun few hours in a slightly altered universe.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I am so glad that Susannah stepped up the story telling with Mirren Kincaid's story. He is truly masculine, tough as nails, yet tender. I don't know exactly how I feel about Glory's character. For the most part, I found her annoying due to that awful narration and supposedly southern drawl. While I thought she was a little sweet, I just couldn't look past this narrator.
Ok so lets get back to the narration. All of the guys sounded awful like female children. Will sounded like a whiny brat and Aiden's voice just made him sound even weaker than he appears to be from the story. And Randa's voice is cringe worthy. Amy tried and failed with that whole southern accent. My goodness, I wish they would just tell her the truth!!!!! I have not downloaded book 3 but I refuse to if I have to listen to the same narrator. Geesh did they not screen her or what?
Was the story good? Yes. But this narration just about slayed the novel. Sighing....but then again, some people seem to love it. I'm just saying, try to wait until it is more on sale than the price it already is.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
Very good second installment of the series. It is way better than the first. I feel comfortable starting the third installment, Omega.
The interaction between Mirren and Glory. Entertaining banter.
This is my first listen to Amy McFadden. She did an excellent job. I just couldn't get into Angela Dawes' narration in the first installment. I'm glad Amy is narrating the third installment, Omega.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
Loved this book but wish the vamps would act more vampy. They keep getting caught unaware even though they know what's coming. How can an army sneak up on 55 vampires. The author has populated her story with 55 vampires, but only 4 or 5 have anything to do. How about using the other 50 to guard the town?
I found myself really rooting for Glory - she is an awesome original character. Hope she's given more to do in subsequent books.
Sex scenes are a bit short -- so if your expecting steamy romance, you won't really find it here. I will say that what there is is good, not awkward, and I expect this author will eventually find her way in that department.
Amy McFadden did a good job with voices. Enjoyed her reading very much.
Interesting, intriguing, irresistible
I think it was when Glory and Mirren meant for the first time.
The standoff at the end of the book.
Not really, while I could have done it in one sitting because it wasn't a long book.
This is a good follow up to the first book. It keeps your interest with just the right amount of romance. But because there is a larger story at work it doesn't draw you away from that. In fact you find yourself wanting book 3, right after you finish this one. It is a fast read and that's one of the things that keeps your interest.
