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?

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
Great story and a different way of looking at Vampire life. I found this book very enjoyable :)
In my heart, I believe that all fiction authors are gods. They create worlds and give life to people who only live in them.
Really bummed that the 3rd book isn't out yet, but love the first two.
Only a couple of things keep this from getting 5 stars from me.
1. Aiden is the leader, master vamp -- but when he fights his enemy he freezes -- not once but three times. I get that he's conflicted, but the enemy is a killer, and Aiden doesn't defend himself. Just felt wrong. Author needs to show why he's freezing.
2. What happens to Lucy? That storyline just falls off to nothing.
3. The author needs to give the other vamps (there are 55 of them) something to do. Also, organize the humans into useful employment, like driving the vamps around during daylight hours so they don't have to do it themselves.
and finally -- Angela Dawe was good but not great. Don't know what's up with her since I usually enjoy her. This time she sounded like she was shouting everything. Maybe the copy she was reading from was all in caps.
Otherwise, great start to intriguing new series.
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.
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!!
I'm reviewing this before I've finished the book because the narrator is so annoying I can't seem to let it go. Angela Dawe speaks every sentence in the same cadence, as though each one is a melodramatic tension point. Her character voices sound very much the same.
I'm going to bull through and see if the story is any good, but for anyone considering this audiobook, I'd recommend listening to as much of the sample as you can. I'll come back at the end of the book and try to review the story itself.
Really good book and I plan to get the second in the series. This series does just suck you in and keeps your interest. The narrator is the best, Angela Dawe. I really enjoyed her. Can't wait to get to the second book so I'll cut this review short. Believe me, worth the cost.
