For vampire Aidan Murphy, life has never been so desperate. The vaccine used to treat a global pandemic has rendered human blood deadly to his kind, leaving them on the brink of starvation and civil war. In tiny Penton, Alabama, Aidan establishes a peaceful community of vampires and unvaccinated human donors. He dares to hope they can survive - until his estranged brother descends upon Penton and begins killing the humans. Determined to save his town, Aidan kidnaps an unsuspecting human doctor…and finds himself falling in love for the first time in nearly four centuries.
Dr. Krystal Harris thought she was coming to Penton for a job interview, but Aidan Murphy has other plans. Infuriated by his high-handed scheme to imprison her in the small town, Krys can’t ignore the attraction between them. But is it love? Or does her dangerous, charismatic captor want only to bend her to his will?

No. I only purchase the audio if I love the book. Nothing can compare to your imagination at work when reading a book. I was very pleasantly surprised with the audio. I purchased because of Dawe and the fact the is was a good paranormal romance.
The first meeting.
Angela Dawe is one of the best narrators out there. She can do male, female brilliantly. No one is better at distinguishing the different characters voices than Angela Dawe.
Willing to serve selflessly.. This has the chance to be a good dark vampire series. Provided the author can keep the edge on. At times the story goes a little soft but their are characters with demons that are riding them which have the potential to propel this series up to the level of the breeds and the BDB. It is worth the credit. Angela Dawe who does most if not all of the narrations for Nalini Singh is okay. She wouldn't have been my first choice. Adain and Chirs have enough chemistry to keep you involved as the story progresses.
the narrator had a sing-songy voice that gets on your nerves after a while. I think the book would have been better served by a male narrator who could pull off a deep sexy male voice. (and not sound like a woman with a head cold trying to do a male voice)
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!
The reader is invited to a small town in Penton, Alabama, to witness an unfamiliar world behind the scenes, a world unknown to most. A Vampire world created by Aidan, where vampires and pure-blooded humans coexist, safely, and peacefully. However, trouble begins to brew when Aidan's brother plans to destroy the empire built by Aidan. In a desperate search for answers to protest against total destruction of the fall of his clever empire, Aidan kidnaps a Doctor and bites her in the neck against her will to replenish food supply, then realizes he fell in love with her. A world of vampires are starving and donors of unvaccinated blood are scarce, who will survive? Did Aidan put the love of his life in danger? I highly recommend "REDEMPTION:The Penton Legacy-Book One" to all paranormal romance lovers. The story is mesmerizing, the setting is picture-perfect, and the characters come to life! Susannah Sandlin delivers an addicting debut novel that will send chills up your spine, while entertaining the reader from beginning to end with sparkling romance, and a craving for more.
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.
Being from a small town in Alabama I enjoyed this book about a band of vampires trying to survive in rural Alabama. I enjoy vampire genre and this is a good start to a series. The plot is interesting and it has it's "sexy" moments. Of course your introduced to other sexy vampires who you want to know about. It was well worth my credit.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
YES, as Ms Dawe reads it. She does the authors' wit and sarcasm so well. The humor sprinkled throughout the story made this a good listen. You bark out a laugh when the humor hits.
the next books in this series are read by a bad reader! I have plenty to listen and my curiousity to learn how this series plays out is not strong enough to put up with a bad reader. Heck the sample in #2 is just awful. Ms Dawe should re record this series.
She out does herself in this one due to author great humor. I wanted to hear Miran's story, but next reader is awful. If you like A.D. check out her Tiffany Snow's series...yummy men!P.S. I am a big fan of this reader.
yes I did. shame I will have to skip book# 2. I just can't listen to any more bad readers!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
If you like vampire books this is a typical vampire romance. I did enjoy it but it really didn't have anything new and I would give it a 3.5 overall. In fact it reminded me of the TV version of True Blood a bit. I didn't always understand the reasoning behind some of actions of the characters and the whole Stockholm Syndrome part was a bit of a stretch to believe. I have had this book in my library for some time now and since Amazon had the rest of the series on sale thru the Whispersync program I figured I would go ahead and read it in case I want to get the rest. At this point I am debating on continuing on. Narrator is good I have enjoyed her in the past with the Psy/Changeling series from Nalini Singh. I personally like her pretty well but she is a bit slow/monotone which can bother you, if you don't like that kind of narration.
love this series and the narrator is fabulous. the changes in voice tone and accent make you feel like you are listening to a play. cant wait to listen to the next.
Synopsis sounded interesting even exciting, could have been if the book was no more than 3 hours long. Exceedingly predictable. I was reading the last half while gardening so it wasn't always easy to fast forward. Skipped thru all the detailed lovemaking, as each one was a repeat of the last one; copy-paste, copy-paste.
Unfortunately, I have the other ones in the series, maybe the story will improve in the next ones. The narrator was okay, could have used a bit of enthusiasm.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
I'm always looking for a new Paranormal series! so happy I found this one! can't wait to start the next book in the series! I hate Cliffhangers!! I was glad this one was not in cliffhanger! It's did leave you wanting more!!
