Publisher's Summary

To walk the Earth, she must feed her hollow soul.
Some of the most beautiful people in the world are not human. They have no souls, feel no emotion, and are pure evil. You can tell by the color of their dark, dead eyes. Samuel Glaus knows this. He is the son of a human mother and soulless father. He is, after all, half human and a hunter of the soulless. He is also in love with one who cannot love him back.
Thalya is a soulless creature, but unlike others of her kind, she does not kill to feed her hollow soul. She hungers only for emotion, and, above all, she hungers for Samuel's love. Her enemy. Her redemption. And she's willing to kill for it.

This was a refreshing read full of originality.

Any additional comments?

I've read my fair share of vampire books. This was the first one, (for me at least) that put a new spin on their lore. The characters were all likable, the story original, and didn't feel like something I've read a hundred times before.

The story has everything to do with falling angels and how they somehow find redemption. The thing is they don't know they are falling angels. I don't want to give away key plot points but some of the characters are from the bible, like Adam. I found it an interesting take on the lore of vampires but it still managed to be respectful to the bible and angels.

I only took off a star for the Performance. I thought the heroine sounded a bit one dimensional and the way I would imagine Bela Lugosi to sound in drag if he were playing a female vampire. His other female voices sounded like old women to me, even the one that was younger. His male voices were great and he reads nicely. I just found the female voices distracting.

Overall, I think you can't go wrong giving this a listen. I was pleasantly surprised.
