Publisher's Summary

Michael returns to fulfill a promise to his love, but the world isn't the same place.

Michael, the Archangel himself, has returned after 150 years rejuvenating in the Etheric Dimension.

Now, the most powerful male vampire the world had ever known is back.

The problem? The world went through an apocalypse, and what little honor and justice that previously existed is gone. Further, his love has left to the stars somewhere, fighting for those on Earth.

Now, Michael has to figure out where he is, where he needs to go, help those who need help, and figure out how to follow in his love's path. Because if there is one thing that honor demands, it is that he make good on his promise to Bethany Anne.

Those feeding themselves on the backs of others have very little time to realize an important fact.

This Dark Messiah has little compunction about killing.

As noted in other series set in the Kurtherian Universe, there is cursing in this book, occasionally, it's funny, too.

great story, iffy on the narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I wouldn't say the book was not for me. I am a fan of audiobooks and beyond the story, the narrator brings a lot to the story. But I still loved the story, enough, I can forgive the narrator some.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Character? maybe Characters is the right word.

What didn’t you like about Chris Abernathy’s performance?

he has a great voice, but not enough range to accommodate the female parts, imo. And a lot of the parts sound the same.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

hope?

Any additional comments?

keep them coming.

Wow Finally!!!

I’m going to be so mad if Michael and Bethany Ann don’t find each other!!! Besides that this was a great book I love how Michaels Honor and promise are portrayed and the true emotional good and bad are brought together!!! I wish the author did a better job on Michaels voice and other really needs work with all the characters!!!

Narrator is so bad hes bringing down a good story

What did you love best about The Dark Messiah?

MA is a great writer and I love the main story this side story is almost as good.

How could the performance have been better?

The inconstant performance is astounding. At times it isn't so bad but the voice for Michael is ... bad most of the time and unintelligible at others. Oh and a big pet peev of mine is Jean Dukes is FEMALE, he keeps saying John or pronouncing it like "Jean Claude Van Damme" so he couldn't of ever read or listened to the main series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Irritation at narrator couldn't even finish the book

Any additional comments?

Read the book since it's good but skip the Audiobook.

Straight up awful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different storyline, better characters, and intelligible dialogue

What was most disappointing about Michael Anderle’s story?

It was all bad. It was like reading something a teenager put together for his creative writing class. The storyline was completely nonsensical, the dialogue was just sad and ridiculous, and the characters lacked...what's that word again....oh yeah.....CHARACTER

How could the performance have been better?

If the narrator wasn't doing a piss poor job of trying to channel Yul Brenner every time he was speaking for the main character

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

The concept behind the book wasn't bad, I mean it was interesting enough for me to purchase it (immediately got a refund upon finishing it which was a chore) but everything about the execution of the story was incredibly lacking

Any additional comments?

Don't read it. I can't for the life of me understand why the other people that have rated this book so far have given it decent marks unless their all friends of the author.

A great book, great listen

It's great go see Michael back and dishing out pain and death to those who deserve it. The book it self is full of action, another book I listened to from start to finish. The narrator did a great job maintaining the quality of the character's and the over all atmosphere. looking forward to listening to the next one, probably tommow.

terrible narrator

totally ruined by an inept narrator, I do wonder why these people are used when they just can't handle a range of voices
