Publisher's Summary

Bestowed with eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. His name carries weight across all of the seven continents. But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in his choice of partners and prides himself on his ironclad self-control. Yet with one look his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover that eternal life doesn't always last forever....
Thrust into a world he could never have imagined, Leo Chapel awakens in his worst nightmare. Taken hostage by the dangerously mesmerizing vampire Alasdair, Leo must rely on his intelligence to escape before he reveals a secret he isn't even aware he's hiding. Unaware that they've been brought together by an outside force and are little more than pawns to a higher power, Alasdair and Leo spend time trying to uncover the other's secrets, the attraction between them growing stronger all the while. But enemies are watching and preparing to act against them. When decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made - can a dead, gray heart learn to beat again?

An interesting listen...

Vampires/Paranormal are not my normal fare when it comes to audiobooks, but I adore Ella Frank's work (and her audiobooks), so I was interested to listen to the first book in this series

When I have listened to a PNR audiobook I've noticed that there is usually a lot of information information and scene setting and in Alasdair this translates into very lush scenes and you can quickly build up an image of Alasdair's world in your mind

The plot revolves around an ancient vampire Vasilios who is connected to the main character Alasdair. Alasdair in turn finds himself greatly drawn to a human named Leo who seems to be dangerous to him and vice versa. As the book progresses, it's obvious it is not a standalone, but thankfully there isn't a frustrating cliffy at the end. The secondary characters also play a big party in the story of Alasdair and Leo and enhance the development of the story. This is not the Cullens and family-friendly Twilight style vampires!

The narration by Bruce Cullen was very crisp and clear and his handling of non-English phrases was excellent. The only thing I didn't connect with in his narration was he sounded a bit old for the characters, which is seems illogical given Vampires are very old, but I would have preferred a slightly younger male voice

This is definitely a slow burn. The chemistry between Alasdair and Leo is super hot and the tension between the two is off the charts!

So overall an interesting new series for me, with decent narration and I will certainly look out for the next audiobook in the series
