Publisher's Summary

It was immediate for Roman. In 3,000 years, he'd never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed. Everything. Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.

Unbeknownst to her, Roman D'Angelo is exactly what he appears to be - a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires. Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her. Can Roman fight off the incredible forces that would have Evie as their own long enough to win her heart? Or will destiny betray him and destroy everything he has ever dreamed of?

Ugh!

Fell apart from the middle to the end. Could have been great, just didn't make it. Don't know what else to say. Save your money.

The confusing king

What was most disappointing about Heather Killough-Walden’s story?

Too to much I had to keep going back to figure out who they were.

Did Antony Ferguson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

No I was to confused by the amount and how fast he switched between characters.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Roman was smokin hot! But the sex scenes were lacking something. I'm just not sure what it was.

Worth Listening To

I am giving this review with the next couple books in mind. This story in and of it's self is a good story. It's not spectacular, but it's the basis for the next books. What I liked about this book was, it is "all about the story" there is plenty of substance and you have to pay attention. You can't space off and still know where you are in this romance. There is very little sex and it isn't graphic so you can make your own moral judgements there. It's still for adults.

Good story

What didn’t you like about Antony Ferguson’s performance?

The narrator was terribly monotone.

Any additional comments?

I will likely end up listening to the next book in the series because the first left me hanging, but I sure wish someone else was narrating it.

meh

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

wish I could say yes, but for listening not so much, better to read it. The book it's self got 4 stars, but I can't stress enough how awful the narrator was.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire King?

I liked the plot over all.

How could the performance have been better?

the narrator was as interesting to listen to, as dry toast is to eat. He was so monotone, it felt like he was reading instructions instead of a story :(

Could you see The Vampire King being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

not really, it wouldn't translate well.

Any additional comments?

Read this book, but the narrator ruined it as an audio book IMO
