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.

Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I really enjoyed the Penton Legacy. I thought all three books were well written and very unique (which is a huge feat for a vampire romance book). The characters feel so real and relatable that you begin to think the Penton scathe actually exists. And I want to be a bonded human!
I highly suggest reading Redemption (book 1) and Absolution (book 2) before picking this one up. You will not be disappointed. However, I think this book could stand on its own as well.
This is suppose to be a trilogy, but it is left open for more books or a spin-off. Here's hoping it's not the last of the Penton series.
Definitely worth a credit, but for under $10 it's a bargain.
Well my bags are packed and I'm ready to become a Bonded human in Penton Alabama where the Vampires are hot, needy and ohh sooo Alpha.
This was the conclusion to the series and therefore had several plots and lots of interesting sub plots going on but it was mainly Will's story (boy has he got his hands full) as he tries to come to terms with his past**, destroy his Father, continues to try prove himself worthy to the other residents of Penton and get down and dirty with his team member Randa. It's well written with the old familiar characters as well as surprising new ones, there's intrigue, action, conflict, surprising alliances, there was romance although I didn't find it as romantic as the previous books but it was a playful romance. The Tribunal had the final judgement over the wrongs and rights that were done at Penton.
Although it concluded it did leave certain things wide open either for another book (or two..... or more) or a new spin-off series - here's hoping.
Worth a credit? Come on..... If you've listened to the other 2 books then you've just got to get this, but for $9.79 I decided to buy it and save my credits for more costly books. As this is a conclusion to a series it's not a stand alone listen (so start at the beginning, download all 3 you won't be disappointed).
**A little warning - child abuse was mentioned and his evil tormentor is second in command to Will's Father, however it wasn't graphic or salacious but just part of the plot.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
Though I like the previous ones better than this one, i still enjoyed it. Or maybe because i have been building this up in my head for so long in anticipation that it didn't meet my expectation. But here go my review:
What i love about this book:
1.) Action Packed
2.) Character's developments.
3.) Good Plots
4.) Good Dialogues
5.) Smooth transition from the previous book to this one.
What i don't like about this book:
1.) The chemistry between the hero and the heroine has a bit of a too much too fast scenario going on. I would love it if Susannah Sandlin dragged it out a bit... give them both some emotional challenges. I know they were destined to be together but give them some obstacles, don't just throw them together u know... make it into a meal. Not just a drive through.. if u know what i mean?
2.) Both new and old characters seem to b too perfect? They seem to blend in together into a single voice at some point. I mean everyone were too devoted to one another. Too driven, too selfless that it's no longer believable?
3.) This story is read from too many different people's perspectives that at some point i don't feel like William and Rhonda are the center anymore.
But i still gave an overall 5 star review. I like the book and i enjoyed. Not as much as the previous ones, but i liked it. Recommended!
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
I have read the other three books in this series and waited on pins and needles for the third book. I was expected a huge showdown between Will and his father. I felt quite disappointed when this didn’t happen. After book 2, I thought the reclaiming of Peyton would be a brilliant battle but it was more talking than action. The romance scene weren’t at steamy as they were in book 1 & 2.
I wasn’t happy how the relationship between Will and Randa developed. More information about Will’s background was revealed, and that was heartbreaking for me to hear but I felt the reader was left with an open mouth expression gasping for more. Please oh please tell me it doesn’t end like this.
people who read not listen.
better voices, take her time seemed rushed
Don't know , could not get past first chapter
Book 3 of the Penton Legacy and it featured Will is the only living child of the antagonist Mathias Ludlam, and Matthias was still bent of bring both Will and Aiden to heel.
In this book, we got a glimpse into Will's childhood with Matthias. We learned that he was such a wise-ass to hide a life of pain and insecurities. While it was the thing that made him clash with his partner Randa Thomas, a former military officer, who came to Penton after being turned. Randa had only been a vampire for five years, but she didn’t enjoy this new way of life and it annoyed her that Will found jokes in just about everything. After sharing being caught in an attack on Omega by Matthias, Randa and Will shared a few childhood stories, they starting seeing each other in a new light. Their romance was much less intense than Mirren and Glori’s courtship. Randa and Will were quite tentative in my opinion, but it is also nice not to have insta-romance. It was like watching a flower blossom.
What made this book different was that this book focused more on plot than the romance, and the story advanced to a new stage. I am excited at the development of Omega Force, but I still uneasy with Matthias Ludlam alive. As long as he is alive, Penton residents will never be safe. Will's book was good but not as good as Mirren's book. But pretty darn close. Wil l's book was good but not as good as Mirren's book. But pretty darn close.
I didn’t know this author before this series, but I am going to be checking out her work from now on. I was supposed to read a book a month with this series, but obviously I kept going because I just had to keep reading. I am looking for the next book “Deliverance” with newest Lieutenant Cage Reynolds because this series hasn't had a love triangle yet...and so this should be good.
The narration is really good on this series. I listened to this book in 2 days.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Another great addition to this series. I noticed a few flaws in Amy McFadden narration this time but she still done a decent job. :)
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes,this is an exciting new vampire series that I certainly will revisit. This book has introduced a new aspect to the story that is exciting. So I think this is going to make the Top 10 of my favorite vampire series.
Oh I love them ALL. That is what makes it all so good and the plus of meeting even more in this book.
This is worth a credit and I can't wait for the next book in the seires. It just keeps getting better.
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.
