Will Ludlam is tired of hiding. He doesn’t regret turning his back on his father’s cruel Tribunal legacy, but he never intended to live like this, secreted away with the vampires of Penton in their underground fortress, Omega. Charged with caring for bonded humans fleeing the vampire war, Will longs to join the fight. But first he must earn the trust of the beautiful soldier tasked with keeping Omega safe....
Randa Thomas is one of Penton’s newest lieutenants, a former US Army officer now devoted to the vampire rebellion. She has little patience for Will Ludlam, and can’t understand why the privileged son of one of the vampire elite has the trust of her scathe’s leaders. But as the Tribunal closes in and Omega prepares to make one last stand, Will’s polished charm - and Randa’s guarded heart - finally give way to the warrior within.

I love books! Listening or reading! Vampires and Werewolves and Fey, oh my!
I can't say... I didn't read the book myself. I have found, though, some books don't work as well for me when I listen to them. The Penton Legacy books have so far worked for me on audiobook.
When Randa and Will are trapped and he finally figures out what Aiden told her about him. Its also at this time they start to really come to terms with each other.
She does all the characters well... I was nervous when they changed narrators after the first book but Amy does just as well, if not better. Mirren is always a character I like to hear voiced (and she does his voice well) I also like the way Amy plays Mirren's mate, Glory.
I don't think there were any moments that "moved" me, but I did feel worried when the grenade was dropped into the tunnel.
I have yet to read the 4th book but I'm definitely going to. I love the series for its simplicity. For me it is a good series of books to listen to at night before I go to bed. I like the characters and their personalities. I want Penton to succeed and its people to be safe.
I think this was dubbed as a trilogy, but it's wide open for an ongoing series. I hope there's more installments to come, cause it's a good series, and I've grown accustomed to a few of the characters. This could probably be deemed Will's story, but so much goes on with other characters, that it was only a portion of the ongoing battle with Mathias. We were introduced to a few new interesting people whose stories I'm sure will become integrated into the next of the series. If you like vampire tales, with vampire politics and romance, then this book will interest you. It's definately an ongoing story, so start with "Redemption". I like this narrator that has done these last two books. She seems to do different voices well, with Merrin being my favorite.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
love this series. From the first book I was hooked and it has only gotten better. In this story the third book of the series, we get to find out more about Will.
Will has been a secondary character up until now. He is a trusted member of the Penton community and has helped to design it and Omega. He has faced many challenges along his way, the main one being his father who is Penton's worst enemy.
We also get to find out more about Will's partner in patrols and his main conflict in the town - Randa. They just cant seem to agree on anything. But are consistently forced to work together. Randa is facing her own problems. She has not fully accepted her new life as a vampire and is just not sure it is what she wants to be. She also still worries about her family and misses her father and brothers. She is determined to not give up though and is trying to work though her issues to adjust.
At the same time the battle with Will's father is still going on. This causes quite a few issues with the Penton vampires and their bonded humans. Without trying to give spoilers from the previous two books I will just say we have a former character come back and a few deaths that do come together, to help take care of this ongoing battle and possibly lead to some new alternative ways for vampires to exist.
I do strongly recommend listening to them all if you like vampire tales. And they all go together perfectly to form a complete story arc about the town. I am hoping there is more to come where we get to learn more about some of the other characters we have met along the way.
Oh, my.. Such a great 3rd book. I only hope it's not the end of the series. I loved Will and Randa. Loved Cage and hope he gets a story. Was so glad when Shelton got his due and was sorry when Matthias was only arrested.
I read all three books in three days and I'm hoping for more.
Again the narration left a lot to be desired. Ms. McFadden sucks at doing the men's voices. This was Will's story and throughout the entire book he sounded like a girl. She did a great job with all the girls' voices but none of the men sounded like men. Such a shame.
Mother of teenaged bear, Wife to chaos, Warrior
I wouldn't, only because i've read this series an I'dv tell them to start from book 2 Absolution for just a little background
I find that each storyline was the same although it flowed together.
if it wasn't the same ol same old
