Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more. Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind. This audiobook includes the short story "The Deepest Cut."
Contains mature themes.
As I've said before, this series keeps building and building into a well-written, well described and imaginative saga as the Order of the eight Sons Of Navarus try to understand and fulfil an old Prophecy, fight the evil Archons who rule over all vampires and who are becoming an ever growing threat, try to stay alive and, of course, fall in love. The focus is always on the richly described deep characters, their painful histories and their desires but along with them comes suspense, sex, mythology, twists, shocks and a very emotional and intense storyline.
Tarek, one of the Sons, is a much loved Sire which are mainly made-up of the thousands of women he's turned over his long long life!, he lives with a close family of vamps (which is really his hand-picked Harem of willing, satisfied and happy women) but the poor vamp is bored. Well Tarek be careful what you wish for because one brutal night he rescues beautiful Ilona and his world changes....... but not all changes are good. There's an Assassin that'll stop at nothing to kill him including lies, betrayal, mass slaughter and torture.
Dual POV's, narrator did a great job with the many character's voices but slow and quiet in-between and, although this could just about be a stand-alone listen, don't do it because you'd be missing so much backstory and details.
Worth a credit? An author who really delivers an addictive, exciting, emotional and enjoyable story about eight chosen hot sexy vampires and the troubles they've left behind and the ones they find themselves in now. A great romantic storyline, suspense, mystery, passion, lust, sex and an interesting ongoing entwined plot as the Sons continue to be hated and hunted by the Archons because of a Prophecy neither side yet understands. All this for just one credit.... Hell YEAH count me in.
