Publisher's Summary

After years of running, Quinn has finally found a town to settle down in while she searches for the man who tore her life apart. Despite her every intention not to, she's started to put down some roots and make friends. However, the small bit of solace she's found is quickly shattered when a group of vampires walk into the bar where she works and turn her life upside down. 

Looking only to stop for a few nights and have a good time, Julian never expected to stumble across someone like Quinn. Determined to keep her free from the vampires looking to use her as a weapon, Julian is stunned to discover himself starting to care for the mysterious woman with a dark past she's unwilling to reveal. It doesn't take him long to realize that the vampires after her are only a part of the problem. This quiet little town is hiding a violent secret of its own; a secret that not only threatens the town, but Quinn in particular.

Terrific Story & Narration🎧 A Fascinating PNR!

This book is action packed with interesting storylines that I found captivating from start to end. Erica Stevens created an imaginative and fascinating world where vampires are real and live amongst humans. Some of these vampires are like no other, they have their own unique powers while others are just ordinary blood suckers. The world dynamics amongst the vampires is changing, there is upheaval and some are trying to gain power which puts both vampires and humans at risk. Julian, a vampire is working with a team where each has their own supernatural power. They are working to get rid of the evil trying to take over. They meet Quinn an extraordinary being turned vampire, she plays down her powers and lives her life as an ordinary human tending bar at night. Julian takes a liking to her, he is curious about her and her powers. They find out she is being hunted by the evil ones, they want her for her powers, they can be used to gain power. Julian and the others will protect her. Quinn also has her own secrets and a vendetta, she wants the vampires responsible for killing her family. There is never a dull moment in this book, from the heartbreak Quinn suffered to the drama of the current time, there are twists, angst, some suspenseful moments and some heartfelt ones. Erica Stevens, thank you for another great story, I am looking forward to see what comes next for these great characters.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the talented Meghan Kelly. She is a wonderfully entertaining storyteller and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own distinct voice and personality which makes it easy to follow the story & everyone in it. She does an amazing job projecting the emotions of the characters as well as the drama of the story into her performance. It is always a pleasure to listen to her work, she has a great ability to enhance an already great story another level. Thank you for another great listen🎧

The best listen I've heard of in a while

This story was absolutely amazing. I loved all of the characters but Julian has my heart .Quinn was a perfect strong female lead . She was smart and not controlled by her urges . The narration is the best I've heard from meghan Kelly also. The performance and and story was a perfect combination .I also read a review on Amazon that this is a spin off .I honestly couldn't tell that it was but decided to go back and read the origin series. It took less than 48 hrs and now I have a permanent smile on my face. I now love Julian even more and can't wait for the rest of his story to come to Audible .

I requested this audio copy with the understanding that I would leave a honest and unbiased review .

My Two Pennies

Meghan Kelly is incredible when it comes to the narration for this story. The passion and emotions poured into these characters are not only felt though the words but also heard throughout the book and each individual person stands strong with their own voice. I have read reviews that said this is a spinoff from the Kindred Series which I have not read yet but I definitely want to look into now that I’ve been introduced to Quinn and Julian. I was taken on an exciting adventure in this PNR story and was not lost in the slightest starting off with Frost Burn as my first book. This story is filled with non stop action and adventure that has a strong storyline and will keep you on your toes throughout. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series and learn more about all of these characters.

Entertaining

This was an entertaining vampire story. The author did a great job of making every character feel unique and pacing the story beautifully. The narrator did a good job of finding each characters voice.

Loved it! Awesome!

Loved this! Really excited to see where the series goes! Cool premise and loved all the characters. I do wish I would’ve read the series this series is a spin-off of, but I still really enjoyed this without doing that first. Julian is a vampire that has a crew that is searching out rogue vamps or something like that. They stop at a bar and he sees Quinn. She’s a vamp too, but there’s also some mysterious things in her past that make her a target for some big baddies. Quinn is a bit prickly and has her walls up, but after being attacked and helped by Julian, she agrees for the continued help Julian offers. Loved the action and the suspense! There’s also something shady going on Quinn’s town that is causing some major problems. I liked Quinn’s sass and her backstory. I liked how supportive Julian was for Quinn. He’s the charmer and the flirt; I did get a bit tired of all the ladies falling over themselves for him, but he has a deeper side that he hides beneath the surface. The romance is a slow burn, enemies to lovers type thing, and I really loved the connection between Quinn and Julian. The author did a great job with the pace of the story, and created a story that has drawn me in. Excited for the next!!

The narrator did a good job on the audio, and she fit the characters. I’d recommend listening.

Exciting!

This story was a very powerful tale of vampires, monsters and ordinary people. It had emotions written all over it. Meghan Kelly is a talented narrator and she does the voices so well, I can picture the characters perfectly in my mind. I can’t wait to listen to book 2.

Fabulous story!

I loved that Julian has changed from a cold blooded killer to being selective and trying to help Hunters or Vampires if they prove they have good in them. His group of friends/ Hunters are committed to their cause. Finding Quinn and realizing her power and the good in her and getting her to trust him, her story is sad and complicated. She is the Prophecy. The two of them fit together and they are falling for each other. Bad vampires want her and her ability to use her to control others. Julian knows he will stay with her to keep her safe no matter what it takes because he has fallen in love with her. This is one of the best books I have read that is paranormal in a long time this author wrote a great story and the narrator was spot on with the voices.

Good

This was good. It took a little to get into but once I did I enjoyed it. Julius is hot and sexy! Quinn takes no sh&t from him and knows her own mind.

I started listening to this audio and found myself really enjoying the story. It was a bit different from other vampires I have read.
I haven’t read the original series this is s spin off from but easily picked up on the story.
There’s plenty of violence and a bit of romance too.
All in all a good listen. I may carry on with the series at some point.

4 1/2 stars ⭐️

I would rate this at 4 1/2 overall stars. I like Meghan as a narrator, but it seems that a dual narrative would have fit better for this book. She did a decent job, just some of the narrative for Julian in my opinion fell a little short of her talent. I’ve read the spin off series a few years ago, so I knew the background of Julian and understood him well. However, if you don’t have that background knowledge you could feel lost at times. Although Erica does touch briefly on it in this book. If I didn’t feel that understanding to be vital, I would have given this story a solid 5. The heartache felt at the end of this book will definitely have you picking up book two ASAP!

Interesting storyline with lots of potential

I really liked the premise of the storyline. It's interesting and has a lot of potential. I feel like, even though the author says you don't need to read the series that this is a spinoff from, that I would have enjoyed it more if I had. There is a lot of reference back to the other series and its characters. It causes a bit of a disconnect if you're new and just starting with this series. I'm hoping that future books will focus more on the current characters and storyline and reflect less back on the previous series.

Meghan's performance was both good and not great at the same time. Her female characters and basic story reading are great. She has a good tone, lots of inflection, etc. Her make voices on the other hand are just so dull in comparison. If she read her male characters with the same enthusiasm she does her female characters, it would have been a really good performance.
