Publisher's Summary

Washington, D.C., capital of an empire. Powerful. Exhilarating. Corrupt. And in the shadows, vampires far older than the nation itself.

A power unto himself, Duncan has served at Raphael's side for 150 years. But long laid plans have finally borne fruit, and the time has come for Duncan to leave Raphael and tackle the greatest challenge of his life. He will face treacherous vampires and murderous humans. He will rock the halls of human power if necessary. But Washington, D.C. will be his.

Emma Duquet cares nothing for vampire politics. She just wants to find her missing roommate and best friend, Lacey. But Lacey's been playing with vampires of a particularly dangerous kind, and Emma will have to deal with the new vampire in town if she's going to find her friend.

Battling powerful enemies who will stop at nothing to keep their secrets, Duncan and Emma will dig beneath the corruption and depravity that is Washington, D.C. and uncover the most heinous conspiracy of all.

Love this series.......

I need to get used to a new narrator, especially being a male voice. Now just waiting for the rest of the series to be released on audible.

Another Wonderful Edition to Vampires in America

I have been waiting for this book to be in audio. I love this series and have listened to the first four many times.

In this book, Raphael's Lt and right hand man have decided to put the next phase of their plan into motion with Duncan taking over the D.C. residence of the Vampire Ambassador. Things are really rotten and Duncan finds that he needs to clean up the mess left by his predecessor.

And then there's Emma, another lawyer, working on capital hill and trying to find out what happened to her friend. Not so much fireworks (fights and arguments), but a steady attraction between two strong characters which was nice to "watch" unfold.

I was worried about the change in narrators as I have really enjoyed Traci Odom's narration, but Nick Russo has stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the ball park and is a wonderful edition to the Vampires in America family. I can also understand the change in narrators as the focus is shifting from Cyn and Raphael and onto new male vampires who each have back stories and battles of their own. In this book and those that follow, you hear from the male character as much if not more than the female lead.

I'm looking forward to the next audio book.

Love Nick J Russo - great narrator change!

I love Nick in his work with other authors and I bought this because I love his work so much. I'm a big DB Reynolds fan and he did her proud.

This is a fun series with a great new narrator!

I hope we see more of him!

Loved this book

I've liked all the books in this series and find them worthy, although I'll admit that Raphael and Jabril, focusing on the two main characters, were my favorites up until now. The other two books were good, but were a little weaker in my opinion. I liked Duncan's character in the earlier books, so I'm glad he got his own story. The storyline was good - so good, in fact that I went back in and re-downloaded the first two books so I can listen to them again then I'll listen to Duncan again just because. Ahhhh.

Loved Duncan's ascension

Emma and Duncan were perfect for each other. A lawyer and ambassador fighting for human and vampire rights is always a good tale. More more!

NEW STORY EVERY TIME, KEEPING UP THE PACE!!

Any additional comments?

Duncan was ready to take on a territory and Lordship of his own... and he got more than he bargained for. What was uncovered in his new DC territory as Ambassador was more evil than any of them imagined. Perfect "untimed timing" allowed Emma to walk right into the compound and into Duncan, unaware he had taken over. In search of her best friend, she needs their help. <br/><br/>Admirable writing and imaginative storylines make every one of these books a winner.<br/>TWO THUMBS UP!!

One of My Favorites of the Series

Since Duncan was introduced in the first book, I've been looking forward to his story. D.B. Reynolds crafts another fine story and relationship with this book. Duncan is all Southern Gentleman and protective, although he does know when to compromise. Emma is more of a "lady" then say Cyn but is strong in her own way, and no pushover. Ms. Reynolds is very good at building the tension and relationships between characters. We also continue to see more of how the country is divided among the Vampire Lords, their political/social connections and what their different powers are. It's interesting to see the vampire hierarchical world take shape and what certain alliances can mean in the future. I also like that D.B. Reynolds is able to slip her world building in without taking the focus off the main characters and their relationship. That can be hard to do in a romance novel.

I'm glad they switched narrators for this and the next book. As I mentioned in my review of Raphael, Traci Odom was a decent narrator. But I didn't really prefer her male voices and book 5 and 6 are both from the male perspective. Nick J. Russo hit it out of the park. I loved listening to him read Duncan's normal voice and when also when he added that slight Southern Drawl to his speech. I'll also review the next book, but Mr. Russo does an Irish lilt there that I love as well.

Awesome I luv Duncan!!!

This was another great book and I have been waiting for Duncan's story!!! The narrator was good as usual and perfect for this series. All in all I highly recommend this book but for those who haven't read this series you will want to start with the first book Raphael or u won't understand most of the book.

Gotta love The Vampires

What made the experience of listening to Duncan the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed all the books up to this one and I really enjoyed the story behind this one

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked that this was duncan as while listening to the other books Duncan appeared to be overly qaulified to be just a Lutenant to Rapheal

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed when duncan took out Pheobe she was just a pain

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have listened to this book in one sitting as I cannot read books anylonger i love my audio books

Any additional comments?

The Only thing that I thought would have put me off and it did in the beginging was the change of the Narrator I thought that was really bad it took me a long time to get into the book because of this
