    "Loved It..."
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. This was a really great listen. The storyline is interesting and the romance is steamy (not raunchy, which I like too - but she gives a great balance for those who don't like sexxxy romances) The highlight in this book is the cool little secret revealed about Ami and the development of new enemies to the group. I actually think this one was better than the 1st... and we'll get a part 3 (no release date yet, but I can't wait)

    "Great listen!!!!!"

    I absolutely loved this book. I was not able to stop listening to it. I was so engrossed in this book I finished in a day. If you love romance, vampires, and steamy romance you will just find this book addicting. The story had suspence and intrigue which kept it from being predictable and made me unable to stop listening. I found myself sitting in my living room telling my family to just let me listen to my book. They all know my love for romantic vampire and supernatural genre so they respected my wishes. This book was addicting! I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.

    I love listening to audio books because I have little time to read. Faves are paranormal/sci-fi, with romance & inspirational thrown in.

    "Good Book but a Little Preachy"

    Liked the book but I was a little put off by the preaching of vegetarianism, recycling, etc. It's not that I disagree with the concept, but I don't particularly care for it in my fantasy books. I also found it a little unbelievable that an Immortal would own a Prius. Hot men drive a Jag, Hummer, Mercedes, etc., but not a Prius!
    Otherwise, I thought this book, and the first in the series were very good and I plan to buy the third when it is released.

    "Very good!"

    I really enjoyed this book and plan on getting the next book in the series. I would strongly recommend reading/listening to the first book in the series before this one so you know what is going on. The first book is excellent too.

    "Superb narration but the story... not so much."

    I was absolutely blown away by the awesomeness of Darkness Dawns so when I found myself in a reading slump I decided to give Night Reigns a try hoping that it would jump start my book reading engine. Once again, Kirsten Potter's superb narration skills left me hanging on her every word; unfortunately Dianne Duvall's story did not have the same effect. I still thoroughly enjoyed this installment but the chemistry between Ami and Marcus is no where near as compelling as Sarah and Roland's. Even though this novel isn't on the same level as its predecessor it still did manage to get me interested in reading again.

    The mystery surrounding Ami's character had my head a buzz with possibilities up until the end when Duvall sheds some light on this enigma. She has both vampiric and immortal qualities and yet I still wasn't able to figure her out without Dianne's help. I enjoyed this side-plot more than the main one. My curiosity was overwhelming and I do love a book that makes you think! After finishing Darkness Dawns I was anxious to learn Marcus' tale but that feeling slowly died as this story progressed. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on what exactly dampened my feelings for Grayden; perhaps it's because the focus was more on Amiriska. Either way, I was disappointed by the lack of attention Marcus received in this installment. He's a fascinating character with a heart wrenching back story and I wish that he'd been portrayed better or at the very least shared the spotlight with Ami.

    The main plot is well-developed and ties in with what happened in book 1. Bastien was defeated in the previous installment so Duvall had to introduce a new big bad. Her choice was a good one and really helped with the continuation of the story. The non-stop action and steamy romp scenes that I've come to expect from this series are back for another round in Night Reigns. Plus, readers get a few more snippets as to the origins of immortals and I must say, I like where this series is going!

    I've only experienced a handful of books audio-style but Kirsten Potter is hands down my favorite narrator so far. She seamlessly switches between characters while making slight adjustments to her tone so that it's easy to identify who's saying what. I absolutely adored Potter's sound effects; from the vibrating cellphone to the ringing door bell. It's rare to come across a woman who not only makes sound effects but who's actually good at them. I think part of the reason why I'm diggin' this series so much is because of the narrator.

    Overall this book left me feeling lukewarm. I enjoyed watching Ami open up and make a home for herself among the immortals and the preternatural battles left me in awe but the romance between the two main characters paled in comparison to what Roland and Sarah shared in the first book. I'm reluctant to give this series up just yet because of how much I loved Darkness Dawns. I'm still holding out hope that this series will bounce back but knowing that Bastien's story is up next has me feeling skeptical. Night Reigns was an enjoyable read but it was no Darkness Dawns.

    "Another great installment"
    What made the experience of listening to Night Reigns the most enjoyable?

    I love the banter between all of the characters. Even when they are fighting it's entertaining :)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the whole theme of family and loyalty. They are all badass but, have hearts and feelings and they all have a deep sense of loyalty to each other.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is magnificent with her narration. I love how clearly you can tell the characters apart. She brings them all to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ami finally tells Marcus her secret


    Any additional comments?

    I loved reading all the books and I am really enjoying hearing them now. It has brought a whole other level of enjoyment to the series.

    "AWESOME!"

    I love this series! If you have questions about it, go through and read my reviews on all four books. Others compare it to Black Dagger Brotherhood, but don't be fooled. Duvall has set up her universe all on her own without borrowing from anybody else. Others call it a vampire story and that's an ok analogy, but these are Immortals, they eat, drink, sleep, they do consume blood and are violently allergic to the sun, they have many, many, talents that we mere mortals only dream of.
    In this installment Marcus's friends are worried about him because a woman he has loved from afar for most of his life is now completely lost to him. I won't give away all the details here. Seth decides that Marcus needs a new second and sends Amy to him. Amy was rescued in book one. Both characters are in need of healing and love and find it in each other. There's lots going on in these books and are easy to listen to all in one sitting. I recommend it for adults only due to sexual content. Potter is an excellent narrator. Worth the cash or credit.
