Publisher's Summary

Michael continues to work to fulfill the promise to his love, but the world isn't the same place.

Now, there is a mistake he made centuries in the past walking around he needs to rectify.

To complicate matters, there is a group out of England believing Michael's blood will be just what they need for their business. While they get nasty Vampires off the street at the same time.

Further, the effort to pull together the Sacred Clan's ship parts are starting to come together.

Unfortunately, no one wishes to give Michael and his new family any help.

What is a man with a hair problem supposed to do?

Michael has his own brand of justice, and this world now understands the Patriarch is back.

Nothing will be the same.

Meh

I think the narrator ruined it for me. I put it at 1.25 speed and it helped, but not enough. A lot of this should have, could have, been fixed in post processing, just poor quality. Then came the author notes..... aaaarrrrgh.

One of the best multi-author series I've seen.

One of the best multi-author series I've seen, and I've been reading fiction for over 60 years.

This was spectacular!

I got to read and listen to the story at the same time. And I realized I have been saying a lot of the words wrong. I loved listening to the both of you during the author notes, I laughed so hard I woke the house!

Funniest audible author notes ever...

For fucks sake you all had me laughing harder at the end with the back and forth between Michael and Elle Lee than anywhere in any of the books.. I'm not saying the books were bad but you two squabbling like an old and bitter married couple had me rolling. Amazing job on the Tag teamed story line. Chris, excellent job as always.... maybe you should get in the middle of them squabbling next time hahahah

OMG. MAKE THAT CO AUTHOR A NARRATOR

Great book. Great narrator for Mychal. He brings out more soul of Mychal's character. buy it.
I am so in love with the co author...
This co author's accent is mesmerizing. Such a wonderful bubbly personality.
PLEASE NARRATE SOMETHING.
Maybe Have 3 or 4 narrators for the final KG series?
