She is forced to flee in fear of assassination by conspirators plotting to take over the city. You then follow her to the exotic port of Antioch, where she is destined to be reunited with Marius, now immortal and haunted by his vampire nature, who will bestow on her the Dark Gift as they set out on the fraught and fantastic adventure of their two turbulent centuries together.Pandora is Volume 1 of The New Tales of the Vampires.

Great Performance of a Good Story

Janet McTeer's performance as Pandora is spectacular. I would love to listen to her do more books from this series. (Or at least the unabridged version of this one). A talented reader makes a huge difference. I hope she continues making more audiobooks.

The story itself is good, we get a deep look at the history of the main character, a female vampire named Pandora. I personally would have liked to see a little more action for a vampire story, but it was still good overall.

Love this story of Love, History, Loss and once again ... HUMAN NEED.
Pandora pulls you in, not by force or invitation but by seduction and power.
