Publisher's Summary

When Cornish Nurse Eliza Hamilton is mugged on her way home from work late one evening, it is the mysterious Roman Holbrook who appears from the darkness and fights off her strange attacker. Then he disappears into the night before the police arrive, leaving a semi-conscious Eliza questioning if he was, in fact, a figment of her imagination. That is until he shows up on her doorstep one rainy night - and all hell breaks loose again. But is this man her hero, or does he have a more sinister motive for wanting her kept alive?

Captivating and entertaining

Nurse Eliza gets attacked one night by a strange creature. While she is saved by a mysterious man, his intentions are unclear. What transpires is a supernatural and scary destiny that is tied to her family.

This was a gripping thriller and I did not expect what the story turned out to be. It was entertaining and thrilling albeit gruesome at times.

The narrator was brilliant with every and passion through his performance. He expertly varied his tone and tempo to match the emotion of the scenes. It was a truly entertaining listen.

I highly recommend this book! Expect to be surprised!

Get your scare on!

A Reaper, undead, human sacrifice...this book has it all. If you enjoy the paranormal genre then you will love this book! When Eliza is attacked on her way home late at night, it is passed off as a mugging but her savior knows better. When Roman checks in on Eliza’s recovery, is there more to his interest than is to be believed? Certainly a nail bitter...looking forward to the next book.

A Different Kind of Story

Very original kind of vampire like story.
A lot of characters & all well developed.
The narrator was well spoken, clear & little to no mistakes when reading.

A bit long in detail within the story here & there making parts a bit dull, but overall not bad.

This story was given to me for free at my asking & I have given my review voluntarily.

wow its better than good.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book and I'm leaving an honest and voluntary review.

Wow! its good, better than good, incredibly well written, love the dark side of humanity the author has thrown into this story, the characters themselves are fantastic, perfectly suited to this book, having not your typical zombies in this is a welcome change, the author has captured a truly remarkable sense of believability. there's not many books I rave about but is is 1 book I fell in love right away. DO YIURSELF a favour and get this, its brilliant.
The narration is so apt and flawless, it really brings the story with life, as to with the characters. what a winning combo.
I'm left wanting more..
Easy 5 star. brilliant.

CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE

The Sacrifice was my first introduction to the work of Donna Collins – and it won’t be my last. I was gripped by the story, eloquently narrated by Andy Stevenson, so much so that I listened at every opportunity as I compelled to know what happened next. That’s the beauty of audiobooks – I can be ‘read to’ when gardening or making the dinner! And what better way, when performing otherwise mundane tasks, than listening to a scary story. Andy brought the characters to life – even the dead ones! It may be fiction, but Donna writes in a way that makes it all seem very plausible. I hope I don’t have to wait too long before the second instalment is released as an audiobook.
