British vampire psychiatrist and former mercenary Cage Reynolds returns to Penton, Alabama, looking for a permanent home. The town has been ravaged by the ongoing vampire war and the shortage of untainted human blood, and now the vampires and humans that make up the Omega Force are trying to rebuild. Cage hopes to help the cause, put down roots in Penton, and resolve his relationship with Melissa Calvert. The last thing he expects is to find himself drawn to Robin Ashton, a trash-talking eagle shape-shifter and new Omega recruit.

Completely enjoyed the next audible in The Penton Legacy Series. The story continued on without any lapses. The female lead annoyed me at times, but overall good listen. This series makes me want to continue to find out the end result, who comes out winning and how it all takes place. Some interesting twists in this one also. Now just waiting for Book 5 to be available on audible Australia.

Disappointed to realise (at end of this audible) this is part of a series which is not yet available on audible or amazon Australia! I have had this occur on other series and it starts to become quite annoying. As for this audible, I liked Max the main male lead, the female lead, Daphne drove me crazy with her continual annoying thought process regarding male control and dishonesty etc. etc. etc.. but hung in there as the story had promise and I hoped the ending would bring it all together gloriously only to get a quick wind up of My Wicked Marquees and the confusing introduction to book 2, which is not available on audible or amazon Australia yet... Searched for series and alas there is currently 7 books in the series written, yet only 1 available on audible. Not happy and will not bother following through with this series. I suggest Australian audible listeners browse net prior to downloading any audible to check if part of a series or check author through audible to see what is available to download in Australia. I get very annoyed when I download an audible only to find the next book, (in a series) is not available. If I wanted to read a hard copy, I wouldn't be an audible listener. Will request return on this audible, very disappointed all round.

1st book in new series and i am glad i downloaded it. Different story concept which i enjoyed. New species holds your interest as you travel down the road from there captivation to there freedom and the trials that lay ahead for them. I love the New Species characters, they've survived and focus on adapting and living in peace, respecting humans even when there hunted by some cult extremest. Narration excellent, will continue with book 2, hopefully the series will continue to be great.

This one was hard to review as i actually loved the concept of the story and characters. In saying this, i enjoyed the start and slowly started getting annoyed with the intensely continual drawn out detail of the characters emotions/thoughts that seemed to go on and on, with the female smarting over being protected and not asked for her opinion, parts were good but i just felt flat through most of it and the ending was quick and over. Shame as it would have been a great series if more dynamic and fast.

Glad i chose this book. I really enjoyed it, easy listen and and past events are woven clearly and easily into current time. There is a lot of reference to Jesus Christ, as he is the hero's guiding light, and i found myself truly enjoying the way this creates the journey for the characters, not over the top but touching. Makes you think and feel. Enjoyable.

This audible was very disappointing for me, from the start i had great difficulty listening to this audible and actually found myself drifting away and not even taking any interest in it as it was playing. I liked the concept of the story line however narration just didnt suit characters and overall just could not get in to it. I tried but alas i failed, unfortunately i wont even finish listening to complete audible. Will request credit refund on this one.

Another good story to the series. Initially took me awhile to get going as it was a bit slow but became more interesting and enjoyable with some good humorous bits here and there. Felt like so much was going on then within a short time it ended. Overall enjoyed, love that i get to catch up on the various characters of the series that are apart of each new book. Narrator was great, enjoyable and easy to listen too.
