Publisher's Summary

Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire's private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Svente vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like.

Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself. The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared's co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Svente female.

Worth the Wait!!

I've been waiting for this story to become "Audible" since I first read this story on my Kindle several years ago (and I re-read too). Being American, I had some "editing" issues but the story was really interesting and a new twist on vampire "life." There are more stories with Sam and Jared that are totally worth reading and then waiting for the Audible version. Praise for whoever decided to use a male and female to read Sam's and Jared's parts, IT WAS PERFECT. So, Great Story (get a copy) and enjoy the trip to an island.

Beyond 10 stars

I read this years ago, fell in love with the book and then the series! I have since read all of Ms Wright’s books. But this series and this book is a favorite. Beyond thrilled to see the audible version. Can’t wait to see the rest. Please! I have listened to this more than 4 times since I got it and I have not gotten tired of it yet. Narration is excellent. All the right emotions are expressed. Thank you for the audible version. Please do the rest.

GREAT!!

Suzanne Wright is one of my favorite authors. this book was amazing I definitely have to listen to it again since there so many new characters I'm pretty sure she'll follow each character like the rest of her books so I need to make sure I know who has what powers. I really enjoyed how Susan makes her female characters very strong. Sam and Jared have a very funny relationship definitely foreplay and a lot of bickering. I love that Sammy is a strong female sassy attitude hold her own grounds even though she's hurting inside never shows her weak side. definitely a credit to use I can't wait till the next one!! also narrators did an amazing job

I don't find sexism to particularly a turn on.

In the end, Jared doesn't change. He's still a sexist, and his 'love' for Sam isn't based on respect, but lust. I find his character to be repulsive even, and no self-respecting woman like Sam would ever allow herself to be owned by a sexist butthole like Jared. I found the character development to be very weak and the final battle at the end was rushed. There were a couple more chapters of words that could have been included to really make the world and the characters better, but they were left out. The intimate scenes weren't very exciting, and Jared's disrespect for Sam is highlighted in these scenes. Overall, I thought this book was poirly written and instead of being lost in a romance, I was distracted by all the sexism taking place.

Finally!!!

I was jumping for joy that one my favorite books was made into an audiobook. I love this series especially the characters Sam and Jared. I enjoyed the performances by both narrators. I’m hoping more of the series will be available in Audible.

Here Be Feminists Who Hate Women

I read this ebook a few months back and liked it well enough but it did not withstand the test of a repeat experience. The Main character, Sam, sets herself up as some great bastion of feminine strength and idealism fighting the vampire patriarchy yet misses no opportunity to disparage the other women in the book. Nary a chapter goes by that she doesn't sneeringly compare herself to the hero's consort. The story had potential, but Sam's attitude toward other women killed it for me.

Justine Eyre's voice work was quite good. However, P.J. Ochlan should stay far, far away from any roles involving a British accent.

I emailed SW last yr asked if she was going to put this on audible and I was so surprised when she emailed back but unfortunately at the time the answer was no because of all the different accents. so imagine my surprise when I saw it finally was! almost fell out my seat! the performance wasn't great but it wasnt bad either. I was able to listen it. can't wait for the other's!

Finally!!

Suzanne Wright is one of my favorite authors. Her series are all fantastic and I eagerly await the release of each new title. I’ve read this book several times and was so excited when I saw it on Audible. I really enjoyed the narrators and the way they brought the story to life. I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next story to be released.

Finally

I love Suzanne Wright’s series and so happy this one is finally on audiobook can’t wait until the rest of the series is up. This is the first time I’ve listened to two narrators and it was ok since the book was in first person for the two main characters. I still prefer the characters voices to remain the same but this series is so good and the narrators are pretty good.

Downfalls of multiple narrators

So disappointed with the narration. Justine Eyre uses BBC English but pronounces several words using American pronunciation. Also when Sam the heroine is being read by Justine Eyre she has a BBC English accent most of the time with occasional cockney , when P.J Ochlan is narrating Sam has a cockney accent. I think I will just read the hard copy.

Intriguing

I really enjoyed listening to this book, I don’t usually listen to books as I find it easy to loose interest when it is an audio book but the narrator kept me interested the whole way through. I love the story and find Sam to be a smart mouthed, crazy badass chick. I am looking forward to the next book being released on audio.

***Hot and sexy***

This is a new a refreshing story from Suzanne and I loved it :) Sam our homicidal kick ass heroine is perfect, she is smart mouthed a sassy attitude who gives more than she gets lol, and Jared the sexist chauvinist is just as hot. Justine Eyre and PJ Ochlan are two incredibly talented narrators and the cockney accents? it's just fabulous.
