Publisher's Summary

Someone is killing members of the old families, and the evidence points to Whyborne.

Widdershins has been unusually quiet for months. But now a mysterious creature from the Outside is on the loose, assassinating members of the town's old families by draining their blood. Whyborne and Griffin set out to solve the mystery - but as the evidence piles up, the police begin to suspect Whyborne himself is the murderer.

Now Whyborne must both clear his name and stop the horrors the monster threatens to unleash. His only hope: an alliance with his old enemies the Endicotts.

Because something terrible lurks in the Draakenwood, and it will stop at nothing to seize control of the maelstrom itself.

Pure entertainment!

I am always looking for something to take me out of this crazy world we live in today. The Whyborne and Griffin novels are perfect for just that, with some steamy sex scenes and tomfoolery to boot. Truly enjoyable!!!

Doesn't disappoint

Absolutely amazing. Just when you think the series couldn't get any better, along comes another book that proves you wrong. I still don't trust the cousins, they are up to no good.

Such a good series!

I love this series so much! Seriously, if you're not listening to them (or at least reading them), what are you waiting for?

Narrator voice changes are jarring.

I enjoy listening to Ms. Hawk's stories more than reading them, but this time the audio isn't as riveting.

There are quite a few corrections (I'm assuming that's the reason for the voice change) and usually I might notice a longer silence or a change in background noise, but nothing that detracts from the story. That isn't the case here, I find it annoying.

That being said, the story is as usual, exciting, and Mr. Simmons narration (when it isn't interrupted) is excellent and part of the reason I come back to listen to the books every time.

Whyborne's cluelessness is heartwarming, and the love between the characters makes this series a must listen for me.

I do enjoy all the side romances too. And there are several funny bits that make it very worthwhile.

Horror and suspense isn't usually my go to read, but the audiobooks have made this a most enjoyable journey and I'm afraid without them I would have missed some lovable characters and an interesting story teller.

Draakenwood Doesn't Dissapoint

If you could sum up Draakenwood in three words, what would they be?

1 Exciting, lots of action in this installment.<br/>2 Homecoming, we get to see all of the favorite characters from Widdershins. <br/>3 Funny, as usual there is a lot of funny moments when poor Whyborne is just clueless & the banter is great too.<br/>

What was one of the most memorable moments of Draakenwood?

oh goodness, some of these are hard to answer without being a spoiler... <br/>any interactions between Whyborne & Griffin are very memorable, they love each other so much & it really shines thru, especially when in danger. <br/>

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene would have to be the final battle. Whyborne comes in to save the day of course but he has help with him & the townsfolk rally with him to help save everyone. Whyborne's dad really has a shining moment at the end too.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The desk... not going to say any more than that so as to not ruin the moment when you get there but I laughed so hard I cried.

Any additional comments?

Loved this sequel, make sure to read the rest of the series first so you can enjoy it more. <br/>Julian G Simmons did an outstanding job on the narration.
