Publisher's Summary

The greatest trick the First Vampire ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist.

If you enjoyed the Blade or Underworld movies, you will love the Shade of Devil series.

Before the now-infamous Count Dracula ever tasted his first drop of blood, Sorin Ambrogio owned the night. Humanity fearfully called him the Devil.

Cursed by the gods, Sorin spent centuries bathing Europe in oceans of blood with his best friends, Lucian and Nero, the world’s first Werewolf and Warlock - an unholy trinity if there ever was one. Until the three monsters grew weary of the carnage, choosing to leave it all behind and visit the brave New World across the ocean. As they befriended a Native American tribe, they quickly forgot that monsters can never escape their past.

But Dracula - Sorin’s spawn - was willing to do anything to erase Sorin’s name from the pages of history so that he could claim the title of the world’s first vampire all for himself. Dracula hunts him down and slaughters the natives, fatally wounding Sorin in the attack. Except a Shaman manages to secretly cast Sorin into a healing slumber.

For 500 years.

Until Sorin is awoken by a powerful Shaman in present-day New York City. In a world he doesn’t understand, Sorin wants only one thing - to kill Dracula and anyone else who stands in his path. When the descendant of an infamous vampire hunter steps into his life, Sorin is torn between conflicting feelings in his heart - revenge or love. But to a woman like Victoria Helsing, it might just be considered a bloody good date.

The streets of New York City will flow with rivers of blood, and the fate of the world rests in the hands of the Devil, Sorin Ambrogio.

Because this town isn’t big enough for the both of them.

Didn't expect the funny

I went into this book skeptical, to say the least. That being said, i freaking loved this book, it was hilarious-which i was not expecting it all. I am eagerly awaiting the release of more from this series.

amazing

the voice actor really brings out and enhances not only the gritty nature of the story but also a creates an almost romantic expression of a man out of time

inconsistent but not a horrible experience.

can't see reflection, walk into an elevator full of mirrors no one bats an eye. Talk about thresholds and invitations but bam casually walk into someone's house without formal invite. not to mention being turned into a vampire in the time of the Oracle of delphi and curses the Greek panthion meaning ancient Greece but hell he gos to sleep in the 1500s and now the says a 500 year old vampire is technically older than the protag due to a short nap!!! He should have been at least 1500 before his nap I'm so confused with these timelines!!!!!.

Really enjoyed

Overall this was a great new take on the origin story of vampires. I like how he used Sorin, being that I’m a Magic the Gathering fan. I noticed the few minor inconsistencies mentioned in other reviews, but besides that it was amazing. And the cliffhanger was nice too, although I kind of had that in my head canon for a bit. Any word on when the sequels will be on here?

A cool and new twist on vamps.

I can honestly say I can't wait for the next book to come out on audible. This one is one that I will be reading over and over. Love the way that this one gets twisted and turned. Involving some of the old names in the old mythology and the completely new main character.

Solid story

It was a good take in an old story. I enjoyed the different angles of the story. but it did get stuck a couple of times. But it was nothing that ruined the book.

Funny, fast and fabulous with a plot that bangs!

Just finished ‘Devil’s Dream’ and ….Wow!

As usual, brilliant characters. I love that the women aren’t sappy weaklings in constant need of protection from themselves and others. It’s a breath of fresh air!

The relationships are complex and as fun as ever. The plot leads you down what looks like a cul de sac and just as you think all might be lost your head whips sideways and you emerge onto a main road that could take you in so many different directions. The narrator is perfect too.

I can’t wait for book two!
