Set in contemporary Paris and London, and the American colonies during the upheaval that exploded into the Revolutionary War, a sweeping story that braids together the past and present. On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life, free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire.

This is an awesome addition to the authors All Souls series. Its great to learn more about some of the background characters lives and how they interact with the rest of the family as well as the enemies . Deborah Harkness writes as though you were there in the book with all of the action. Each book has held me captive right through to the end. I hope there are more books to come in the series. #exciting #magical #tagsgiving #sweepstakes.

This was a sad story that could happen in real life at any time and actually does too often to fathom. To lose a child and not know what happened to her would be horrible. The truth shall set you free is fitting for the main character who lost her daughter. The journey to find her is a bittersweet affirmation of life. I enjoyed the author’s writing style and would definitely read more of her books in the future. #emotional #psycholady #journey #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, errant wives, missing people, philandering business owners, and, oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. Now Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction.

The storyline might have been very interesting if written a bit better . Alot of choppy sentences and immature dialog. What bothered me the most was the narrator! She spoke quickly in a monotone, with short , clipped words. She reminded me of Debbie Downer on Saturday night Live. It seemed like all was doom and gloom. I really wanted to read this series but wont even try finishing this one .

I do agree that this is a very interesting and fun witchy book with great characters. But I almost didnt finish it because of the narrators softly sexual voice. In fact , I stopped listening for a time and went on to another book, but I didnt want to give up on a potentially good story. I could barely hear the narrator and had to hold my Ipad up to my ear to hear it! I went to Walmart and bought a speaker for it just so I could hear it better! Im not sure I want to go on to the next book in the series.

This was the first book I've read by Jeaniene Frost and I will definitely read another! She writes with humor and action and moves the story along well so you never lose interest . Especially with Tavia Gilbert as the narrator! Well done!
