Publisher's Summary

Malibu, California, - home to rock-and-roll gods and movie stars, the beautiful, the rich...and vampires.
Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he'd give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it's too late.
Cynthia Leighton is smart, tough, and sexy - a private investigator and former cop who's tired of spying on cheating spouses and digging out old bank accounts. When Raphael asks for her help in tracking down the kidnappers, Cyn's happy to accept. But she soon realizes her greatest danger comes not from the humans, but from Raphael himself.
Battling Russian mobsters and treacherous vampires, and getting betrayed by those they trusted, Cyn and Raphael find themselves fighting for their lives while caught up in a passion of blood and violence that is destined to destroy them both.

Action Packed

this book is the first book i have ready by DB Reynolds. I had seen this before and have intended to try it but just have not gotten around to it. I got a chance to get this book free from the narrator in exchange for an honest review. Wow, I did not know what i was missing. This is exactly the type of paranormal romance/urban fantasy i love. Raphael, the vampire lord of the west hires P I Cyn(ex cop) to find his sister. Raphael is intimidating and everyone is afraid of him. Cyn, however, stands up to him and goes against him when he tries to tell her what to do. There is lots of action, some hot romance. No this does not end with happily ever after but the story is continued and i have faith that Raphael and Cyn will finally get together. I can't wait to read more of this series. I think i have found me a new author. The narrator is great. She really brought the characters for me.

Welcome to the Dark Side

Where does Raphael rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rank him in the top 10. This is an awesome start to a great series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Raphael?

Definitely when Rafael broke into her condo to save her. That cemented the bond for me..well until he decided to be jerk and mess that up. LOL

What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really liked the way the secondary characters came to life for me while listening.

Who was the most memorable character of Raphael and why?

Cynthia is by far my favorite character. Tough, beautiful, smart and fearless. Loved her from the first page.

Any additional comments?

I have read this entire series and would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great PNR story.

Strong alpha male

What was one of the most memorable moments of Raphael?

When he and cyn start to realise that they are falling in love

What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I have read all of this series of the american vampires
The stories are great and as soon as i read one book i bought the next one to read .
It is a hard book to get the characters right .
But traci seems to have got into this book and got the personalities right .

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

This series had me holding my breath ,making me frightened ,cry and laught

Any additional comments?

Good but not overwhelming

Would you consider the audio edition of Raphael to be better than the print version?

I don't know I have never read the print version.

Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favourite?

I liked Cyn. The character would not have worked so well if she didn't have money. Traci Odom was good but took some getting used too as I recently heard her read another series which I loved and I found it initially difficult to hear her as Cyn and the other characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The very end when they were both at the airport unbeknown to each other.

Any additional comments?

The story is good, not to aggressive or sexual. The author has developed a detailed world which includes vampires etc. I will definately be buying the next in the series.
