Sandra "Dee" Daniels is a vampire's worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn't get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy - not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge. But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors are a Born Master is in town - a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee's dive bars and alleyways - Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee's work. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee's life - if she can live long enough to uncover it.

"A cross between Buffy and Eve Dallas, fierce slayer Dee uses her haunted past to protect the city." (RT Book Reviews)
I said I wasn’t going to read any more of this series when I read the first one in January 2015 but I changed my mine.
This was a pretty good story. Dee was a hunter in the last book, Eternal Hunter, and I always wondered how a human could be a vampire hunter and not get themselves killed. So, in this book you learned why and how Dee was such an awesome hunter.
I didn’t like Dee when the book started. She was kind of arrogant and thought she could kill any vampire she went after. Then, I learned about her and that made her so much more likable.
I liked Simon a lot. And I wondered what he really was in the beginning. I mean, he did pay someone to shoot at Dee. So, that was confusing for a time. Kinda’ made it exciting to try to figure it out.
I also liked, Zane. Catalina, Jude, Erin, Pak and Tore. And, man’o’man, that Igniter was something else, and evil, too.
There was 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes in this, not erotic, in this and the F-bomb was used 110 times.
As to the narration: Tanya Eby is always a favorite of mine. She does great voices, both men and women, and reads with such emotion. Never get tired of listening to her.
This was recommended by audible and I have listened but it's been predictable. I have listened but wouldn't push it to a friend. Nothing extremely new or unforgettable. Narration is ok yoo
