OMG!!! This was a very painful book to listen to. The narration was awful. The way she portrayed Darrius made him seem like he was a little slow witte..Show More »d. I couldn't even get into the story for the bad narration. The only reason I started listening to this book is because it was the first in the series and I didn't want to miss any important info about the book I really wanted to listen to, King of The Vampires. Hopefully that narrator is better. It had some pretty good reviews so I'll give it a try. Perhaps reading this book would be better than listening to it.
This was my least favorite book of the whole series. I had a hard time getting through it. To much sex talk and not enough story. Thank goodness I w..Show More »as not reading it or else I would have put it down and never finished it.

No tenderness...no nothing. Except if you were a mate. That sounds like hell to me. Even if I had the perfect man......I could not stand living in that environment.

Let me start by saying I love Gena Showalter, and giving this 4 stars is so hard for me. I feel like I have just insulted a Goddess or slapped the Que..Show More »en. From what I can tell, this was read off of the original ebook that was released a while ago and I was expecting it to be the same as it was when published in the book Into The Dark. When I email Gena about this, she told me that there was a word limit to the ebook and that she had lengthened the stories in Into The Dark which had no word count. Author's have no say as to which version is released on audio, I believe that is the publisher's choice. This would have been a lot better if the longer version had been done on audio, but that is only my opinion. The story is still very good.
This story starts where Vampire's Bride, book 4 in the Atlantis series leaves off. This novella features Zane, a vampire warrior and his hope to be love, Nola, a Amazon soldier.
