He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite. Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren.
A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind---and the unwitting humans existing alongside them---from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands. Here, in the arms of the Breed's formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all.

The Writing of this book is great every detail is there, I was so into this book it was done in one night
the demonica series because its has the same kind of feel to it all but the breed mates
Really, a neanderthal 900 year old alien vampire? Sheesh, I didn't feel the *love* between this pair (Lucan & Gabrielle) as he'd just take her to bed & then bail on her. every. time. Yuck. Then the *Ah ha* moment of "Oh, I've been mean to her cause I wuuuuuv her." Sorry, I don't buy it.
The recording featured a reader with a beautiful voice who couldn't do a masculine voice to save her life. Her cast of males sounded like characters from a Cheech & Chong skit! Funny & strange when they weren't supposed to be either.
There was no camaraderie amongst the warriors either. Lucan was a jerk to his buddies, too. Couldn't like him at all. That said, I'll probably download book 2 as the rest of the guys in the cadre didn't act like Lucan (and had better not turn into him in the next book) and the *world* Lara Adrian sets up _is_ interesting, if a little generically executed.
STORY AND NARRATION.
DIFFERENT TAKE ON PARANORMAL VAMPIRE SERIES. ALTHOUGH I DO AGREE WITH REVIEWERS THAT SAY IT IS VERY SIMILAR TO WARDS BDB. I BELIEVE IT IS MUCH BETTER. I DID NOT LOOSE INTEREST AFTER THE 5TH BOOK. EVERY BOOKS IN THE SERIES IS GREAT.
ABSOLUTELY. IN FACT BUY THEM ALL BECAUSE THEY ARE ADDICTIVE AND YOU WILL WANT TO JUMP RIGHT INTO THE NEXT BOOK.
NARRATION IS EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING IN AUDIOBOOKS. A BAD NARRATOR CAN DESTROY A GOOD BOOK. HUBER IS FANTASIC WITH THIS GENRE. IF YOU LIKE PARANORMAL ROMANCE, WITH ALPHA STRONG PROTECTIVE MALE, AND INDEPENDENT STRONG FEMALE WITH STRONG SECONDARY CHARACTERS. LACED WITH ACTION AND HUMOR (NOT TO MENTION GREAT SEX SCENES) ALL DONE WITH GREAT NARRATION . THIS IS THE SERIES FOR YOU.
New to the audiobook thing, but I like it! I'm a huge Stephen King fan... Along with the spy/military type books by Brad Thor, Vince Flynn
A different twist on the vampire legend of how they began.
Could not put it down.
Not for young ears, very steamy. I loved it. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
An avid audible book listener!
If you have read or listened to any of the Carpathian vampire series by Christine Feehan, you will understand the whole 'breed mate' concept better. It starts off interestingly enough, slows down and then comes together quite nicely.
The series promises to be interesting enough to make you want more. Like the Brotherhood of the Black Dagger series, there are enough characters to follow in a series without have too many!
The narrator did a fine job with the voices.
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
Enjoyed this very much. Looking forward to listening to the others in this series!
Another great series so far. Really has a great story to it and gets you really thinking. More intertaining with new idea's to the whole vampire idea and where they could have come from. Would be even better with more than one nariator, but is still great. Not as much sexual parts, but after reading romance after romance you really don't need to hear it over and over. Although this one seems differant than the last romance sexual incounter. So I liked it still.
I am hooked to this series..
Hillary did really good with the accents, great job.
Brought tears to my eyes, and also made me laugh.
A must read, or listen too book!
When this book first released in paperback, I was hesitant to purchase it. This author is new to me and at the time I wasn't really in the mood for another vampire story. When the first book of the series went on sale with Audible, I decided to take a chance. I've learned there are books I enjoy listening to that I may not want to spend the time reading. What I discovered is a rich new world, a intriguing plot and characters I can't help but care about and be interested in. I've already purchased the next audio book in the series and checked out the library for the rest of the series in print.
Yes, because it keeps you in its grip
When the hero learns the identity of the fiend trying to kill him
When he was pulling glass out of her hands
