"I agree to pay Sergio Velenci one million pounds if the female takes less than nine days to fully turn."
Lissa's life as a vampire begins on the day her husband is removed from life support. Turned by rogues who wager her life, Lissa is running from her maker who is determined to kill her, hunted by the Council who has branded her a rogue and blackmailed by werewolves, who utilize her newly developed talents for their own gain.

I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
This was a great read/listen. Lissa Beth Workman is a dumpy, sobbing drunk in a local bar when two vampire walk in and take an interest. They make a wager and proceed to turn her just so they can time the turn. Then they planned to make her dead dead.
What happens next makes for one action packed adventure that takes place all over the supernatural world.
Could. Not. Put. It. Down.
Don't miss this one. Can't wait for more.
I saw this on sale and thought I would give it a chance. I found myself rapped up in the heroin's story... now I'm hooked. I hope they release the rest of the Blood Destiny series on audible.
It read like real people and I liked the sort of feeling like you were reading a journal.
Lissa. Main character because she was likable even tho she is in not perfect. She is real and trying to figure out her way in this world.
Real voices. Not snotty better than everyone voices.
Loved it. I was sad to see that this is currently the only one at audible. I want to listen to more of her books.
I already read the series over and over again. If they keep the same narrator, I'll purchase them all. I'll purchase them anyway.
The heroine, and the storyline. Connie Suttle has the history for her characters down pat.
When Lissa was helping Weldon, the Grand Master, when he was being attacked.
Blood Destiny, which is the name of the series
Please Audible do the whole series?
P.S. and the connecting series': Legend of the Ir'Indicti, High Demon, The God Wars,and Saa Thalarr.
Loved that it was action packed and never dull. You can totally feel her pain and relate to her.
The unexpected lead character they ran across. Lissa was warm but a no nonsense woman that was a lot older and further along in her human life when she was turned. It made her more set in her ways and older in her thinking towards life. and her husbands death gave her the opinion about death that most people try to avoid.
There were a few. but I liked the actual saving of the master were wolf in the pact.
When the assassin brought her in to the counsel. He was an ass.
Just can't wait for the next installment.
Cut the bla bla filler out & get to the story. The story was ok, but it was to thin & full of nothing BS. Every thing was over described. Who really cares if she needs shoes & pants.
Almost everything about the book disappointed me, especially given the raving reviews of other Audible members.
While the book hasn't turned me off the genre, it has finalized my distrust of Audible recommendations.
The narrators accents were truly painfully to read. If she had stayed with the Oklahoman/Texan accent, narration would have been fine.
The book isn't awful for a self published and unedited work but it belongs in the realm of the internet and not available for purchase. The story desperately needs copy-editing.
Not a bad vampire story, though it wasn't super original. I enjoyed most of the 9 odd hours it took to listen. The character is strong and likeable, almost to the point of being a Mary Sue.
The writing is alright, though the author has a tendency to really repeat herself, lots of redundant explaining, unnecessary reiterating, and the jokes/sarcasm aren't nearly as funny as she (the main character, or author) thinks they are. She can really beat a one liner to death, let me tell you.
The narrator is ok. A good female voice for the main character, though honestly her voices for the other characters are pretty atrocious at times.
I would continue the series maybe if the rest went on sale, like this was in the "hidden gem" sale, but I probably wouldn't spend a credit on it.
I will be listening to this book again - when subsequent books come out and just for a good listen.
Lissa's anger and fear when captured and her distress when she finds out who betrayed her
The writing is clumsy at time but if you can see past that the story is original and well worth a listen
