Publisher's Summary

Daniel had been a mercenary longer than his soul could take. On that final job, looking down at the face of an angel whose death he'd been responsible for, he knew he was done. And although he hadn't pulled the trigger on the bullets that took her life, he felt like he had. He'd buried her in a hidden grave in the Canadian woods so no one would desecrate her lovely body. From the mission site in Vancouver, he'd headed north to the most inhospitable place he could think of to try to find peace that he knew he didn't deserve. But after a year of dreams, her face was as vivid as it had been that day. There would be no peace for a guilty man.

Eillia had been killed and buried. Buried by someone who did not know she was vampire... that bullets would not kill her forever. But beheading would. Which is how her centuries-long love affair with Hamid ended in an attack a year ago. She didn't know how to pick up the pieces of her life without him. All she wanted was to crawl back in a hole like the one she'd crawled out of that day. And she had. Lost, in pain, she'd gone north and buried herself in the land of the midnight sun until darkness came and she thought that maybe she might be able to think about living her life again.

See how it plays out for a vampire and human who should never have met at all.

    "The story continues... Book 3"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I love this book & this series!!! It has everything a paranormal lover is looking for in it! Excitement, adventure, sex, a great plot, humor. What more can a girl ask for, unless it is a vampire of her own!


    What other book might you compare Longest Days to and why?

    I don't like to compare books because if someone didn't like the book I compared this too, they wouldn't like this book either and each book should be judged individually!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Eillia found out she was pregnant & in her world, that is very rare. I could feel all the emotions coming from her when she found out, after being barren for thousands of years.


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

    Yes, but since it was afternoon when I started the book, I finished it the next day.


    Any additional comments?

    Great storyline, great plot. I love this series so far! This is the 4th book I have read by author C L Quinn / T C Butts & she has never disappointed me! This lady has such a wonderful imagination to keep a story going on into a long series - just amazing! The narrator, Natalie Duke did a pretty good job too in delivering this story to us. I could never create so many voices or even get the pronunciations right on my own had I read it myself from print! Good job ladies!!!

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    "LOVED EILLIA'S STORY!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you were into PNR..you betcha!


    What other book might you compare Longest Days to and why?

    It's PNR and unique..


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

    I have not, but I would!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both!


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure when I saw the narrator change, but I loved it! I think Natalie nailed it..just as good as Pyper...possibly even smoother than Pyper...Pyper has a certain cadence, its unique...Kind of like Marguerite Gavin...I love this story, and how all these books can be taken as stand alone, but tie into each other...Eillia and Daniel were meant to be, and I am on to book 4!!!

    "I adore this Series!!"

    I have not enjoyed a series this much in a very long time!! Such emotions you feel!! Happy, Sadness, Anger, Joy, and the chemistry!! Sighhhhhh!! C.L..Quinn is an AMAZING writer!!! Illeya and Daniel are such star crossed lover's!! Daniel may have done some horrible thing's, but you truly feel his pain!! And Illeya is So very strong!! I truly can not wait for the next book in this Series!!! Natalie the Narrator is perfection!! She will truly make you feel like you are there!! And she is so seemless with the language!! I am quickly becoming a huge fan!!!

    "Burying the Undead!"

    Wow....Another amazing story! Author C.L. Quinn is a very talented author. This story has a great storyline, wonderful character development, action and adventure, sex, and so much more. If you've never listened to a story by this author then you're missing out and I highly recommend you get started either reading or listening to her stories today! I guarantee you won't ever be bored while listening to one of her stories.

    Narrator Natalie Duke does a fantastic job with her performance of this story. I had no trouble identifying the characters as the narrator used her talents delivering all the accents, multiple voices, and she amazed me as she brought this story to life. I truly felt like I was there inside this story watching it as everything played out. Overall, a 5 star rating!

    Story
    "A GREAT PLOT & A BITTER-SWEET ROMANCE"

    This listen takes place a year after the first book and finds Eillia slowly coming to terms over the brutal death of her long time lover during the attack on Bas's home and Daniel, the guilty Mercenary that led the attack who's working hard and drinking harder, is trying to drown his guilt. Both of them are drawn by fate to the same small town in Alaska where Daniel, full of regrets and haunted by the face of the beautiful woman he buried but can't forget, is in a bar trying to drown his memories when he suddenly sees that exact beautiful face looking back at him through the crowded bar..... Mmmm delicious!!

    As Daniel and Eillia find themselves drawn to each other neither one knowing why there's a sizzling chemistry which leads to a much fought against great romance that's touching, tender, passionate, heartbreaking and sexy there's also plenty of action as evil Alvin and crazy First Blood Tamesine try to carry out their revenge. With plot twists, surprises, suspense and loveable characters from the previous books and some new ones too, makes this a well written new Vampire series to follow.

    Worth a credit? Exciting, very enjoyable, well narrated and a listen I just didn't want to stop certainly makes this, IMHO, a very creditworthy addition to my guilty pleasure of an ever expanding list of PNR books.

    "Good book"

    I enjoy the series. They have pretty steamy and unexpected plot lines. They're a little cheesy and the voice acting isn't... Always the best... But it doesn't detract from the story.
