Publisher's Summary

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.

    "IT'S LIKE QUICKSAND....IT'LL SUCK YOU RIGHT IN"

    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.

    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!!

    "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! What a different taste?"

    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...

    "What happened to the Narrator!"

    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.

    "Finally! Serious Improvement"

    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.

    "Absolution"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Wrong Narrator For This Book"

    Folks the narrator can make a break the book, and Ms. McFadden is the wrong one for this book. I have heard heard her before and thought she was good. I like the story--think I will change my mind and give it four stars, but not the narrator. She rushes it. I know Angela Dawe reads fast, but this was way too fast. Not sure I will get the third book since Ms. McFadden is performing unless it's a darn good price. Don't you wonder sometimes how they decide who will perform a book and if that person has gotten good reviews, why would you change it?

    "Nice Sequel"
    Where does Absolution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very good second installment of the series. It is way better than the first. I feel comfortable starting the third installment, Omega.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction between Mirren and Glory. Entertaining banter.


    Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely.

    "What a Series! I never expected this."

    At first I wasn't sure at all about this series. I have to admit it was the second book that really got me. Now I'm hooked and there are no more books available. Come on Audible, get the next book in this series. Yes, the series is that good.

    "Definitely a series I will follow"

    In book 2 of the Penton Legacy, Aidan’s second in command, Mirren Kincaid "the slayer" was captured by Mathias Ludlum, who hoped to force Mirren back to being the tribunals mercenary and/or his personal goon. During this same time, Mathias kidnapped a young Gloriana Cummings, a clerk at a Circle K gas station, because he sensed some special powers he thought he could add to his arsenal for his war against Aiden & the Pentonville Community. When Mathias was unable to break Glori, he locked her in a room with Mirren, a vampire who hadn't been fed in a month. But being a master vampire helped Mirren keep some control around Glori, and when Mirren was rescued he took Glori too.

    Thus began Mirren & Glori's journey towards coupledom! A great, though not easy adventure. But it was a helping process for the slayer and the freak. This author has made a seemingly simple & predictable storyline very engaging and fun to read. I couldn’t stop and I loved the that tortured hero struggle that Mirren was going through. He wanted the love, but felt he didn’t desrving of it due to his past as an executioner for hire. I also love Glori’s strength because she was much tougher than Krys. Glori had been battle tested by her family and thus a perfect match for Mirren. I love the various characters and how they were intertwined. I can't wait for book 3.

    Again, the narration was spot on and kept me engaged. I like her various character voices. Great job.
