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
