How do you choose who lives and who dies?
Alchemist Amelia Rimos has just discovered the cure for the undead. Being naive and vulnerable, she does not realize the undead have their targets set on her.
Happening upon a tall, dark, exotic man named Michel Gauthier, he saves her from becoming a victim, thrusting her into a game of cat and mouse. Amelia realizes being an alchemist is not in her best interest when she befriends him. Is Michel as sincere as he seems, or does he have an ulterior motive?
When her life cannot be more complicated, John Hawthorne interjects himself into Amelia's life and shifts it completely upside down. He informs Amelia she has the key to their survival. Soon, she will realize the undead are not the only monsters in the world.
Amelia will find herself in a stalemate: She will be forced to choose between destroying her evidence and saving the man she's grown to love, or destroying over half the population of the world, including the love of her life with it.

WOW. The narrator was perfect for the story line. The story drew me in and kept my attention. Filled with suspense and romance this is a must have for one's audible library.
Nightworld with the vampires and werewolves. X-Men graphic novels with the stories about the differences.
A different voice.
This book had me from the beginning. There was no messing around, the character development was fast paced and exciting. Easy to visualize the scenes. The narrator is fantastic!! I could listen to this story all day! Can't wait for the next one!
Exciting, action-packed, and sensuous.
Fiona Thraille's voice kept me in the period. Reading the book myself, I might have had a more difficult time staying in that Victorian era. The actions of the characters sometimes appeared more modern, but when read by this narrator I was able to stay submerged in the setting.
Several moments in different ways. I loved the "dream" moments but wanted to scream when the dreams ended and the realization sank in that it didn't really happen (breathing heavily). But I loved it! Then there was the blood and gore and bathtub... Ugh! I won't say more on that. You need to read it to get the full impact.
Not being a big fan of steampunk, vampires or werewolves, I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book. But I have read other books by this author and thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did! Started listening late afternoon and at 1:30 in the morning I couldn't stop! Listened straight thru to the end and loved it!
