Publisher's Summary

Powerful vampire Quintus Tullius returns to New Orleans after a demon attacks. Elusive and lethal, he conceals his true powers from all others, wielding his strength over the centuries as he sees fit. When he's healed by an attractive stranger, he quickly realizes her altruistic actions are driven by more than kindness, and she is not who she appears to be. Unsure if he can trust the dangerous beauty, he swears to protect her, captivated by the one creature he'd never expected to flame his desire.

Gabriella Savoie has been on the run since she was 13 years old. Determined to survive, she practices a unique blend of magick to hide from the coven who seeks her death. Desperate, she leads a treacherous existence in underground clubs, selling her mystical blood to vampires to survive. Drawn to the one person who can save her, she spirals into an erotic journey, exploring her hidden fantasies within the arms of the seductive vampire.

From Louisiana to New York, their sensual and perilous adventure leads them to discover ancient secrets, searching for the artifact that will set her beast free. As Gabriella accepts her fate, will she sacrifice her magick to be with the vampire who is her true mate? Will Quintus trust her and reveal his powers, acknowledging the unexpected bond to a woman who isn't human? And will he be able to save her, thwarting the impending evil that descends on Big Easy?

"Deeply seductive, sultry, passionate, and darkly sexy is this thrill ride of a read. Kym Grosso has written a great vampire romance and thrill ride. She takes the reader on quite the journey that leaves the reader feeling as if they've walked down the streets of New Orleans." (www.nightowlreviews.com)

changed narrator

The new male narrator did not change his voice enough to make the characters distinctive. This made it difficult to follow who was saying what in the story. I would have preferred the same narrator as the rest of the books in the series.

Narration a Combination of Childish and Monotoned

While both narrators have nice voices, their narration of this book was painful.

The female narrator used the childish over dramatization you expect from children's books and the male narrator basically read the book. Like, as in, just read his part. It was a major distraction from paying attention to the story. I get that other reviewers find his voice "sexy." If he were propped up in my living room just reading, I'd be fine. But, this is an audiobook and I've become spoiled by narrators that can have ten different characters in the room and you KNOW who's speaking without the characters being identified (and giving a Cajun man living in Montana a country hick voice as your one trick is just sad). I've become used to actual emotion and believable expression. Between the two of them, it was like a bad children's hour at the library.

They have potential. But this was awful.

why did the narrator change?

I listened to the entire series again before listening to Quintus, and I must say I was very disappointed. Not so much in the story but In the narration. Not only did it go from one male narrator to two, one of each sex, but the voices did not have enough change between characters. The female did change pitch of characters atleast. But the male spoke the same tones with reading, speaking, or thinking for every character. Previously Quintus has an accent, which made his voice stand out against everything else. This one there wasn't an accent. Also it should be mandatory for a new narrator to actually listen to the book before, or the entire series, before attempting to record it. Now I'm listening not reading so my spelling will be off, but the majestic animal Kia and Mao change into was spoken 'payo' in the last book, where the new call it a pixeu. And it took a few time hearing Casedius (demon vampire chick) name before I realized that was who they meant. It is said nothing like the previous book. Both these things could have been avoided, along with the hint of an accent, if the narrators would have spent the time to listen to the book before this one. Heck, even the last couple chapters would have worked. It just aggravates me when you get used to either a narrator or the way things are pronounced and it is changed in the middle of the series leaving us hanging on what's what. I love these books but I truly had a hard time listening to this one. The story (while very close to all the others in the series) is not bad, if a bit predictable. But honestly that's why I like these books. Some books you read you have to have a dictionary, thesaurus, calculator and medical journal beside you just to understand them. These are easy going and fun. I like that. So good book, not happy with the narrations lack of homework.

A disappointment and where is Ryan West?

Ryan West, the narrator for the previous books in the series got better at the women's voices and he was used to the style of the Kym Grosso stories. While Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott narrate the Cherise Sinclair stories exceptionally well, in this Kym Grosso story genre it felt as if they were reading the numbers in a phone book and often just trying to "get through it" instead of living the roles. Loved Kai's deep voice for the male part but really missed Ryan West's story telling energy and emotion for all the characters. Not sure if this was just not one of Kym's better stories or if Ryan West's energetic unapologetic almost "early Batman television narrator" storytelling style would have made up for the short comings. It read like a cliché episode of that awful, cringe worthy reality TV "The Bachelor".

Ehh.. *possible spoiler*

Out of all the books this is probably one of my least favorites. The story was a little disjointed compared to the rest. Also some of the connections between characters felt forced or lacking explination. In the other books I grew to understand the bond between mates and close friend that usually happens when wolves are involved. But in this it was rushed and the female lead felt weak . I hope in the next book these issues are rectified . Oh and lastly I didn't care for the narration it was nice to have male and female but the accent was not what we were used to from quintus and certain words were pronounced incorrectly.

Si Bella.... 2 words have never been sexier!

Kym Grosso wrote another entrancing story full of mystery, suspense and sexy supernaturals. Destiny fulfilled - Quintus and his little hybrid take on one of the most powerful evil forces we’ve met yet in the Immortals series. Your one true mate is out there even if it takes a 1,000 yrs to find them.

She do it Again !!!!!!!

This is the ninth book in the Immortals of New Orleans series and I have been obsessed with this series since book one and couldn’t wait for this to come out! I highly recommend starting with book one and going from there since that’s the best way to enjoy this amazingly addictive series! This author has an incredible way of creating a world filled with magic and sexy vampires that sucks you in and makes you never want to leave and my only complaint is that these stories don’t last forever! I quickly fell in love with Quintus and loved reading more about him! Quintus is an ancient vampire that is brought to the brink of death and saved by a woman who is on the run. Gabriella (Gabby) and Quintus then travel around the world and they go on an epic journey together that left me on the edge of my seat the entire time! This series is primarily based in New Orleans and I love this city with all of my heart, but it was nice to travel around with the characters a bit and experience their adventures with them! I highly recommend reading this entire series and I can’t wait for the next book!

Great narration for great book

I was disappointed with the book ‘Jake’ but Loved everything about Quintus story. Not only was the storyline intriguing but Kym Grosso took the extra steps of having male & female narrators then had the female read the female parts & male read male parts AS IT SHOULD BE. It made the story come to life.

The narration change effected the impact!

This has been one of my all time favorite series. Although I usually advocate for Duet narration, this time it lessened the Impact of the story. Absolutely, this narration team has talent but, Ryan West made this series. He has a sexy, Alpha voice and unique talent sold the passion of the intimate scenes. I wish they would re-record this book with him narrating.
The storyline was just as good as ever but the narration changed made this addition,to the series , a disappointment.😭

Personal tasted

After waiting more then a year for this one to be in audiobook form it was a big disappointment for me like that last season of True Blood.
I'm a fan of Ryan West and his performance on the other books in this series is flawless his ability to do different voices for the characters is awesome.
I never buy books with dual narration but well this one is and badly Wes Ross has a nice voice however I could not hear the difference between Quintus and his brother very hard to keep you focus when you don't hear who is talking.
And then all the other characters from the books Ryan West can make them sound the same in all the other 8 books now Leopold sound awful.

The story is one of the least interesting of the series Gabby is annoying an so not what you would want for the oldest vampire alive. Quintus is well not what I had hoped.

For me this book is a wasted of a credit and I'll not get the next book. Maybe if I was able to read the printed version but my eye's won't let me read no more. However like I said in the title "personal tasted"
