After the world was ravaged by a viral apocalypse, Blackwater is one of the only colonies that remains. The survivors came together to create this safe haven. Nestled between a fierce river and a city's flood wall, the well-being of its residents hangs on a long-established treaty with the night-walkers. Sounds simple enough, but lately, the people of Blackwater have been dying, and the humans believe the night-walkers are to blame.
Porschia Grant starves for more than her parents' affection. Forced to enter the rotation, she will be given extra food rations in exchange for becoming a vampire's breakfast and dinner for a week. The rotation has an extra responsibility as well: leave the colony and enter the dangerous forest to hunt for food. A night-walker will protect the hunters from the infected that roam the woods. But with the treaty hanging in the balance and tension between the humans and vampires rising, anything could happen in the darkness.
What would you do if your only chance at survival might kill you?

Spectacular dystopian vampire book! Well written, well performed.
I listened to this while driving, and managed to miss a well known turn, because I was so into the story! You really feel the main character's pain, anguish, and fear.
There were a couple of moments that had a little muffle on the audio, but other than that, it was a beautiful performance. I'd definitely recommend this one!
no... i had to get the kindle version around chapter 17 because the audio crapped out
I loved the story so far - Audible was the problem - Audible died at the first chapter on my kindle - since I paid $9.97 for this audible book I wanted to hear it - so I tried to hear it on my computer - and it stopped multiple times on the computer with major difficulties to pull it back up - this last time I'm still trying to bring it back up to hear the rest of the book.
I have had issues with Audible before - I thought it might have been my system, but now it has been on my kindle and my computer. Once you start with Audible you can't just regular listen either. very frustrating! I don't know why I keep trying Audible when I keep having these issues. When It works I love, but it doesn't work more often than it does.
The book is great.
YES! I thought the voices were clear, engaging and the story is one of the best I've read and listened to over the years.
It's kind of a mixture between Hunger Games, Twilight and Walking Dead if you are a main stream reader. If you are a fan of Indie's Bond's other series - The Harvest Saga and The Hallows by Amanda Hocking. It's romantic dystopian fiction at it's best.
She was clear, showed emotion in her voice.
Other than excitement and urgency to find out what happens I had no extreme emotion when listening.
Casey Bond's books are phenomenal whether they are in written form or thru an audible. This is one story you don't want to miss. This audible was well worth the buy. The performances by the voice over characters were on point and really brought the story to life.
Absolutely loved this book. Mother's a bitxx and sister's a monster. Main character has no idea how much power she holds over the men in her life. Well, not all are men. What Portia does just to survive shows how strong she really is. Story flowed easily and definitely kept me intrigued and wanting more. Narrator did a very good job. I'm on my way now to get book 2. Highly recommend this book.
Brenda - We Read With A Glass Of Wine
The voice reading. The woman reading, Amanda, brought the story alive. I had chills starting when I started to listen. She is the perfect voice for this story.
Amanda's voice is the character. It is just a different experience than if you read it.
