Firstly, let me say this is the 1st part of a trilogy so you won't be disappointed as I was when it finishes and you scream WHAT!!? .... but wow what a different take on a Vampire story.
I found this book to be a "just another chapter" listen as the riveting, captivating, unique, emotional, enjoyable and compelling story slowly unfolds and your mind and loyalties become torn and you sway backwards and forwards between Aris, Sarah and Carlos not knowing just who to sympathise and root for.
It's an intense mystery and a unique story that will take you from a Hypnotherapist's chair to various historical time periods including Henry VIII's Court life but also to the Court of the Vampire King and Queen. Then suddenly your back to present day where there's a dangerous sinister gang, a briefly mentioned ex husband and boyfriend, close friends, Carlos' family troubles, some disturbing but pleasant dreams and a simmering attraction and underlining building romantic feelings for a patient.
It could easily have been a 5 star listen but I felt the story seemed a bit 'choppy' and lacked any real heat or romance, yes there were a few brief 'moments' in her dreams but they weren't very descriptive, sexy or hot and I felt a bit robbed of the passion (but hey that's just me). It was very rich in visualisations describing every detail this was good in one way because it awarded you fine mental imagery but sometimes things were just plain unnecessary. I don't know how accurate the historical references were but I'm sure Henry VIII didn't say "yes sweetie" and some of Sarah's actions and decisions were just stupid.
Worth a credit? My bloodshot eyes and the bags under them will bear testament that YES this unique story is definitely worth a credit in my opinion and I'm desperate for the next one. However, it may not be for everyone.
