Nightshade universe painted a vivid story about a dark and dangerous world created by Evelyn Ledgerman that both fascinated and appalled me, but I dev..Show More »oured every minute of it! With each macabre scene, I was pulled in deeper to a world where showing weakness could get you killed. While this universe got my attention, it was the character's Afton, and Lorenz that kept me listening to this story almost non-stop.
After a long search, Afton's father was able to locate her on earth, and had her brought back to the Nightshade universe to fulfill a contract that was formed years ago. To complete this contact, she must join with Lorenz, a very powerful vampire. Her first encounter with her father showed her just how terrifying, and brutal vampires actually are. Because she is half-vampire, he forces her to drink blood directly from the humans, which makes her sick and weak. When Afton learns she's to join with another vampire, she is actually a little relieved knowing she will be leaving her father's hive.
Lorenz is not happy when he hears Afton has been returned to Nightshade universe, and does not look forward to joining with a half-ling. After spending weeks avoiding the inevitable, he finally makes it to the hive to uphold his end of the contract. As soon as he lays eyes on Afton, he's drawn to her, and knows what she will become after they "join." In the beginning, their relationship and romance came across as awkward, but as the story progressed, these scenes become more natural.
Unfortunately, Afton's half-human side puts her in a lot of danger. When evil forces and Malice come for her, Lorenz will stop at nothing to keep her safe, and will make alliances and ruthless bargains, but Afton is tired of being a victim.
David Brenin's performance was great! The characters were easily identifiable, and he portrayed the different emotions throughout the story.
