Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows that she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires do not know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know.
Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family; the same royal family that started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves.
Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Enduring . Dangerous. Love.
Very good narration, she keeps my attention.
Love changes everything!
I first came across this book at the kindle store for free. I was immediately drawn to the characters and unusual plot line. I bought the whole kindle series and I can't wait to buy the audiobook versions.
No but only because I typically don't listen to books more than once, even if I really like them.
Hard to say without spoilers, but it's a scene close to the end of the book. Very intense and romantic.
Yes it sure was, it felt like watching a movie, super hooked and just wanting to know what happened next. It was hard to stop listening and get out of the car on several occasions.
There are only a few things I did not like about this book. Sometimes the internal monologue was a bit too dramatic for my taste, which also slowed the story. Then the descriptions, I could point out words the author seems to use a lot throughout the book, like 'realize' or 'realization', 'glare', and 'clenched fists' were definitely very prominent. Overall though, I think the story is amazing, full of the type of conflict and tension that keeps you hooked, and I liked the characters, could connect to them, and was intrigued by them, so to me, that made it worth the listen. Can't wait for the next one!
Tell us about yourself!
Yes I would recommend this to a friend because it was an awesome book. I loved the storyline, the characters, the narration.
I liked everything about this book! But I think I liked the storyline and the chemisty between Braith and Aria best. Although there are more vampire books out there than I can count, this story was not another regurgitated book. It was original and fantastic!
I loved it all! I especially loved how she sort of used Braiths voice as the narration voice during his POV scenes and Aria's voice as the narration voice during her POV scenes. That probably makes no sense, but it will when you listen.
It made me fall in love with the characters and it left me wanting more!
I found this book completely by accident and I am so happy I did. It's such a good story and if you love paranormal book, especially vampire books, you will love this story!
I never read the print version, but I am in love with the audio edition.
None. This story is beautifully written and very unique. No story of vampires could compare. I love the imagery of it all, I felt like I was there.
One of the best narrators I've listened to.
Winter's coming -- almost time to huddle up with my ipod and hot chocolate!
The characters in this one are one dimensional, and their inner thoughts are vapid. I found it silly and lacking any sort of depth.
Our h has just been sold to a vampire in a blood slave auction. She's been living on the run in the forest with a small band of humans who are resisting the Vampire overlords. Her new owner is the gorgeous prince vampire. He has the cleaning ladies take her off to be bathed -- she's smelly and dirty from living in the woods. She is scrubbed down, has her nails painted, dressed in a skirt and blouse, strapped into high heels and sent back to the prince.
What era is this supposed to depict? Why does she need her toenails painted in order to provide a meal to her new owner? She's supposed to be terrified of what's going to happen, but all she can think about is how he makes her tingle and feel things, especially when she see's his bedroom.
Really? There is bad, and then there is this.
