Will Ludlam is tired of hiding. He doesn’t regret turning his back on his father’s cruel Tribunal legacy, but he never intended to live like this, secreted away with the vampires of Penton in their underground fortress, Omega. Charged with caring for bonded humans fleeing the vampire war, Will longs to join the fight. But first he must earn the trust of the beautiful soldier tasked with keeping Omega safe....
Randa Thomas is one of Penton’s newest lieutenants, a former US Army officer now devoted to the vampire rebellion. She has little patience for Will Ludlam, and can’t understand why the privileged son of one of the vampire elite has the trust of her scathe’s leaders. But as the Tribunal closes in and Omega prepares to make one last stand, Will’s polished charm - and Randa’s guarded heart - finally give way to the warrior within.

Well my bags are packed and I'm ready to become a Bonded human in Penton Alabama where the Vampires are hot, needy and ohh sooo Alpha.
This was the conclusion to the series and therefore had several plots and lots of interesting sub plots going on but it was mainly Will's story (boy has he got his hands full) as he tries to come to terms with his past**, destroy his Father, continues to try prove himself worthy to the other residents of Penton and get down and dirty with his team member Randa. It's well written with the old familiar characters as well as surprising new ones, there's intrigue, action, conflict, surprising alliances, there was romance although I didn't find it as romantic as the previous books but it was a playful romance. The Tribunal had the final judgement over the wrongs and rights that were done at Penton.
Although it concluded it did leave certain things wide open either for another book (or two..... or more) or a new spin-off series - here's hoping.
Worth a credit? Come on..... If you've listened to the other 2 books then you've just got to get this, but for $9.79 I decided to buy it and save my credits for more costly books. As this is a conclusion to a series it's not a stand alone listen (so start at the beginning, download all 3 you won't be disappointed).
**A little warning - child abuse was mentioned and his evil tormentor is second in command to Will's Father, however it wasn't graphic or salacious but just part of the plot.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I really enjoyed the Penton Legacy. I thought all three books were well written and very unique (which is a huge feat for a vampire romance book). The characters feel so real and relatable that you begin to think the Penton scathe actually exists. And I want to be a bonded human!
I highly suggest reading Redemption (book 1) and Absolution (book 2) before picking this one up. You will not be disappointed. However, I think this book could stand on its own as well.
This is suppose to be a trilogy, but it is left open for more books or a spin-off. Here's hoping it's not the last of the Penton series.
Definitely worth a credit, but for under $10 it's a bargain.
Hi all fellow listeners. I am disabled and spend most my time at home or walking my beautiful Jack Russell dog Sydney. I live for my dog and fantasy world. Keeps me going having this wonderful site to get all my books from. Remember to laugh and smile every day and throw some love into the mix :)
Another great addition to this series. I noticed a few flaws in Amy McFadden narration this time but she still done a decent job. :)
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
Though I like the previous ones better than this one, i still enjoyed it. Or maybe because i have been building this up in my head for so long in anticipation that it didn't meet my expectation. But here go my review:
What i love about this book:
1.) Action Packed
2.) Character's developments.
3.) Good Plots
4.) Good Dialogues
5.) Smooth transition from the previous book to this one.
What i don't like about this book:
1.) The chemistry between the hero and the heroine has a bit of a too much too fast scenario going on. I would love it if Susannah Sandlin dragged it out a bit... give them both some emotional challenges. I know they were destined to be together but give them some obstacles, don't just throw them together u know... make it into a meal. Not just a drive through.. if u know what i mean?
2.) Both new and old characters seem to b too perfect? They seem to blend in together into a single voice at some point. I mean everyone were too devoted to one another. Too driven, too selfless that it's no longer believable?
3.) This story is read from too many different people's perspectives that at some point i don't feel like William and Rhonda are the center anymore.
But i still gave an overall 5 star review. I like the book and i enjoyed. Not as much as the previous ones, but i liked it. Recommended!
I have started listening to audibooks and I don't think I can ever READ a book again. It's now my new favorite addiction.
I have read the other three books in this series and waited on pins and needles for the third book. I was expected a huge showdown between Will and his father. I felt quite disappointed when this didn’t happen. After book 2, I thought the reclaiming of Peyton would be a brilliant battle but it was more talking than action. The romance scene weren’t at steamy as they were in book 1 & 2.
I wasn’t happy how the relationship between Will and Randa developed. More information about Will’s background was revealed, and that was heartbreaking for me to hear but I felt the reader was left with an open mouth expression gasping for more. Please oh please tell me it doesn’t end like this.
I think this was dubbed as a trilogy, but it's wide open for an ongoing series. I hope there's more installments to come, cause it's a good series, and I've grown accustomed to a few of the characters. This could probably be deemed Will's story, but so much goes on with other characters, that it was only a portion of the ongoing battle with Mathias. We were introduced to a few new interesting people whose stories I'm sure will become integrated into the next of the series. If you like vampire tales, with vampire politics and romance, then this book will interest you. It's definately an ongoing story, so start with "Redemption". I like this narrator that has done these last two books. She seems to do different voices well, with Merrin being my favorite.
