Master of Darkness, Mistress of Light
A creature doomed to wander the earth in eternal darkness, he searched the ages for someone to share the endless night of his existence, for that one woman who would recognize the man within the monster.
An angel of purity and sunlight, she feared the mysterious stranger whose eyes promised endless ecstasy even as he whispered dark secrets she dared not believe.
They were two people longing for fulfillment, braving the danger of a love like no other. Alone, they faced desolation and despair; together, they would share undying passion, defy eternity, and...
Embrace the Night.

Firstly, I usually love AA's Vampire books and they're an auto buy for me, but by the end of this story I felt sooo depressed by it's never ending tale of a handsome Vampire called Giovanni (aka Gabriel) who's lonely and hates what he is, a cursed and doomed monster, and his total obsession with Sara Jayne a beautiful mortal crippled orphan child.
This unhealthy relationship starts off in Victorian England and ends in 1995 but it's hard to review it without giving accidental spoilers so all I can say is:- yes, it's a touching, tender and traumatic tale of forbidden desires, adolescent innocent love and a very emotional love story. But there's hate, revenge, sorrow, death, reincarnation, an unresolved ending which should have been followed by a 2nd book, it contains very very mildly suggested sex scenes and it's also repetitive.
Worth a credit? It's not your usual Alpha sexy Vamp meets his mate and a HEA ending follows but this did start off well, had promise and I kept hoping that the plot would pick up to happier times but alas it didn't, in fact it just got darker and more wretched which took my mood down with it. So, NO I don't think it's creditworthy, and even if it was free, I still wouldn't recommend wasting your time listening to it.... but hey, you may love it.
