The tension between the Aeternus, an ancient vampiric people, and humanity has been mounting for over a century. But when rogue vampires begin to drain humans in order to achieve an illegal blood-high, all bets are off.
After the death of her parents, Antoinette Petrescu devoted her life to becoming one of the top Venators, the elite hunters who destroy the rogue Necrodreniacs. Her kill count is legendary and her skills superb.
But now the serial killer who killed her parents has returned. And to stop him Antoinette must join forces not only with the Aeternus, but also their most legendary killer. One that is both dangerously attractive, and involved in buried secrets of her past. More dangerous still, a dark attraction grows between them - one that could doom both races.

Loved this first book in a new series. I usually stick with authors I know. Audiobooks aren't cheap. ;-) But took a chance on this one and it really grabbed my attention. Looking forward to the next book.
I made it to Chapter 8 before I could take no more of the narrator's performance. The story seemed to be good enough and honestly I liked the character progression for the most part ( a bit predictable to this point) and the different species were interesting.The narrator reads the entire text as if it's the climax of a sexual encounter with a devious undertone (just add evil laugh moo-hahaha). I prefer a narrator that can add emotion, change accents, creative inflection, etc., etc.but this was over the top.I dislike giving negative reviews & perhaps I should have listened to more of a sample than I did.
