This sequel to My Soul to Keep, from best-selling author and two-time Bram Stoker Award finalist Tananarive Due, is a breathtaking supernatural thriller.
After the disappearance of her immortal husband, David, Jessica Jacobs-Wolde must come to terms with the healing blood David gave to her and their daughter, Fana. As Fana’s powers grow, mother and daughter are swept into an epic battle to determine the fate of humankind.

With so many good books to read/listen to, I most likely would move on to something new. Although, I did really enjoy this title!!
I would probably have to say that discovering the true nature and history of the blood was one of the more captivating moments.
Mr. James brought most of the characters to life, but Lucas really stood out.
There were a few.
As stated in my headline, I thought this title to be both outstanding and original. I've listened to many books since joining Audible, most of which were entertaining, although not all had that special something that captured my full interest and attention. This is a standout, and I would recommend it to those looking for an all around good story. I don't really understand the review posted by Josh. Well, to each his own I guess.
Narrator note: Although Peter Francis James has an awesome voice and did a wonderful job narrating, there were times it sounded as if he were sucking on a cough drop or something. Other times you could hear him swallowing (a little distracting). Maybe the sound engineers should try filtering some of that stuff out. Other than that, great book.
People really into exploring emotions? The author was too wordy and found myself distracted easily.
It was not engaging; failed to pull in from the very beginning.
Yes...voice actor was great.
It had potential, but the idea of race being prevalent everywhere was a turnoff.
Really, I couldn't connect with the characters and the story didn't pull me in from the very beginning; seemed boring.
