Dystopian romance and paranormal adventure collide in this wasteland odyssey of vampires, road warriors, and a super-powered sexual predator.
In a post-apocalyptic world the lone warrior Cassandra must use her supernatural gift, the ability to control life-force energy through sex, and all of her skills as a bounty hunter in an attempt to rescue the daughter of a handsome stranger from certain abuse and death at the hands of a raiding vampire cult and their enigmatic overlord.
Cassandra has remained in the relative safety of Las Vegas for too long, as dark powers and thirsty monsters still stalk the deserts that surround the city. She has a loving husband who accepts her promiscuous nature, her mistress is the enigmatic ruler of the city itself, and yet her spirit longs for the dust and violence of the vampire wasteland. Enemies and lovers alike rise to meet her as she returns to the open road.
The Corrupted are coming, an endless horde of shambling nightmares that are heading straight for Las Vegas, driven by the will of an old enemy who refuses to die . Discordia has rallied an army of superheroes and road warriors to join her in defending the city while also seeking to fuel her lover's powers by making their last stand in an ancient temple to sexuality. Cassandra has returned from the wasteland with a secret weapon to help in the battle, though she must learn to unlock the deepest parts of her gift for anyone to have a hope of survival.
I had a bit of a hard time with this one. I think it was both the storyline and the narration. Cassandra is a body shrine of lust, if I was following things correctly. This is an apocalyptic storyline. Humans are forced into seclusion by vampiric-ish beings, that turned out to be more alien in nature than human. The humans had priests & priestesses that were born to fight the vampires and used sex to regain power and keep the vampire's from taking over the world by turning everybody into a Thirster - minions of the Vampiric Lord. I felt both the storyline and the narration needed a lot more work to make this a compelling listen.
