Publisher's Summary

Mirren Kincaid remembers the vampire he used to be - and he’s not going back. As the Slayer, Mirren served the Vampire Tribunal as its most creative and ruthless executioner. Then he refused a kill order and eventually found himself the protector and second-in-command of the peaceful enclave of Penton, Alabama. As civil war threatens to break out in the vampire world over the scarcity of untainted human blood, the Tribunal wants its slayer back - and has sent a beautiful witch to retrieve him.

Descended from a powerful shaman, Glory Cummings is meant to restore Mirren to his bloodthirsty ways as the Tribunal’s assassin. But Glory doesn’t see a killer when she looks at Mirren; she sees a vampire haunted by his past. Though her mission is to turn him into a monster, she hopes her magic touch can heal the man she’s suddenly falling for. But the Tribunal has never looked kindly upon defiance.

Keeps getting better!

I enjoyed the first book, but this one was much better. The excitement in the plot and also the sexual interaction was good. This is a must have if you've started on this series. I'm looking foward to book 3.

Great Series!

Loved this book but wish the vamps would act more vampy. They keep getting caught unaware even though they know what's coming. How can an army sneak up on 55 vampires. The author has populated her story with 55 vampires, but only 4 or 5 have anything to do. How about using the other 50 to guard the town?

I found myself really rooting for Glory - she is an awesome original character. Hope she's given more to do in subsequent books.

Sex scenes are a bit short -- so if your expecting steamy romance, you won't really find it here. I will say that what there is is good, not awkward, and I expect this author will eventually find her way in that department.

Amy McFadden did a good job with voices. Enjoyed her reading very much.

Good book.. So-so narration..

Any additional comments?

Loved it just as much as I did the first one. Loved Mirren and Glory and it was nice visiting with Aiden, Krys, Will, Hannah, etc..
I'm going to read Will's book now and I do hope the series continues.

The narration? Amy McFadden does have lots of emotion and great inflections in her voice but she doesn't do mens voices worth a damn. Sometimes I wasn't sure if it was a male or female talking. If she just lowered her voice she would get nothing but 5 star reviews. She does do Will's story so I will suffer through it so I can see what happens next.

Entertaining enough - average

Not great, not bad. Enough to keep me lightly engaged while doing other things. Some weakness in plot and skips in storyline suggesting bad editing. Will consider the other books, but not a top choice. Will look at public library instead of using a credit.
