Publisher's summary

Vampires. Shifters. Nephilim. Ema Marx is their savior, but she can’t believe the bloodsuckers exist. Or that she’s one of them.

Sure, night vision and super strength are cool, but when an ancient premonition threatens her life, Ema just wants to get the hell out of Dodge. Or in this case, the mysterious castle she wakes up in.

Jalmari is a vampire prince with a bad attitude. He wants nothing to do with Ema, until he discovers she's a threat to his throne. Now he's out for blood. Ema's blood.

Ema's survival hangs on her ability to stay one step ahead of Jalmari while curbing her own morbid thirst. Can she save herself, or will she succumb to a dangerous destiny?

Dark Heirloom is the first installment of the five-time award-winning Ema Marx series. If you like strong female heroines, lots of action, and a hint of romance, then you'll love J.D. Brown's gripping urban fantasy world.

A good read that has hooked me for more!

A different take on vampires and their powers. Beginnings of a love story and mystery yet to fully unfold in the series. The life given to the characters through the voice of M J Webb, made the story that much more enjoyable. Can’t wait to start book 2!

Powerful Story

I haven't read many vampire books, but this book amazed me in all of the right ways. JD Brown used quite a vivid imagination in the various ways her vampires and vampiers(hope I spelled that correctly) could shift and the way they lived. Ema is a strong woman who unwillingly is brought into a nightmare of a world and becomes even stronger. In this world it's hard to figure out who is good and who is evil, although we quickly realized one truly evil character. There will be characters that you dislike and then feel sorry for them. Well, my emotions were all over the place. JD Brown captured my attention throughout the entire story and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. This is a continuing series and the next book is out in Audible.

MJ Webb does an outstanding job with all of the characters' voices and accents. She moves flawlessly from one character to the next. She allows the listener to feel the emotions of these characters and gives them life. I highly recommend this Audible book for an exciting adventure.

My first audible

Overall I absolutely loved the story, towards chapter 18 it seemed to just be dragging! The narration was spot on! I was able to feel and understand everything Ema was going through emotionally!

The story was very great, just wish it wouldn't have been so dragged out! Can't wait to see what is in store for Ema in the future.

For this being my first audible I would highly recommend it!

Dark Heirloom

This is a great vampire book by JD Brown, and MJ Webb did an excellent job of narrating it. MJ kept the accents/voices and characters straight. Very engaging. Good job! Can't wait to listen to book two.

Good but....

I really enjoyed the book BUT there is one thing that I hated...that was the transition between chapters...it was a static type sound and it was crap...they really should remove it. The narration, story and characters were good. I surprisingly enjoyed it. Cant wait for book 2.

Definitely a must listen!

I had such a good experience with this book! Right out of the gate, I was SO impressed with the narration. MJ has a gift for accents. She easily transitioned from one accent to another. It was so easy to keep up. There was an odd static in between the chapters but nothing that would keep me from listening again.

The book, I love a good vampire book. I liked that this one was different! It’s not all die hard romance. But there are the steamy parts that keep you coming back for me. I adore the main character, Ema. She’s very relatable, for me at least.

This is definitely a must listen!
