Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tosca Lee brings a modern twist to an ancient mystery surrounding the most notorious female serial killer of all time. A fast-paced thriller for fans of Lee's Books of Mortals series with Ted Dekker, Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, and BBC America's hit series Orphan Black.
Emily Jacobs is the descendant of a serial killer. Now she's become the hunted.
She's on a quest that will take her to the secret underground of Europe and the inner circles of three ancient orders - one determined to kill her, one devoted to keeping her alive, and one she must ultimately save.
Filled with adrenaline, romance, and reversals, The Progeny is the present-day saga of a 400-year-old war between the uncanny descendants of "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time, and a secret society dedicated to erasing every one of her descendants. A story about the search for self amid centuries-old intrigues and Europe's underground scene...and one woman's mission to survive.

Is there any escape from your true self?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A delicious narrative of history, suspense, paranoia, romance and trans-Atlantic chases.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Progeny?

The surreal ending left me stunned, speechless, and definitely wanting the sequel.

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

Therese Plummer captures the essence of the main character while also delivering a variety of foreign dialects. Luka's voice was my least favorite - though ;-(

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

I loved the sublte melting of the adamantine life conversations.

Amazing journey

One of the best books I've read in a long time. Absolutely gripping story where the characters and events completely jump out at you and make you feel as if you know them, and are on the streets and roads with them. I'm sure this would be the case in the regular book as well, but this narrator was just about the best one I've ever heard. Flawless presentation and seamless transition between the different characters speaking, regardless of them being male or female, American or European. Incredible work there. I can't recommend this book, and this audio version, enough. Cannot wait until May 2nd for Book 2!

Boring

I brought this as an audio book and couldn't get past the third chapter and even getting to that point was mind numbing.
