The story opens: Talulla has settled into an uneasy equilibrium. With her twins safely at her side, and the devotion of her lover, Walker, she has what appears to be a normal family life - except for their monthly transformation into werewolves hungry for human flesh. But even this hard-won, tenuous peace is undermined for Talulla by nagging thoughts of Remshi, the 20,000-year-old vampire who haunts her dreams. For his part, Remshi can’t escape the feeling that he knows Talulla from many (many, many) years before. Still, they have their distractions: Talulla is being pursued by a fanatical, Vatican-based Christian cult, and Remshi is following a trail of reckless feedings by a newly turned vampire bent on revenge. But, as the novel unfolds, Talulla and Remshi are inexorably drawn to each other - and toward the moment when an ancient prophecy may finally come to pass.

What a dumpster fire
Is there anything you would change about this book?
the entire plot is all over the place. Compared to Duncan's first two books, I was totally disinterested in what happened to all the players in this book.
What was most disappointing about Glen Duncan’s story?
Another books that tries to get a vampire and werewolf to be lovers. What blazing originality. Glen Duncan lowered himself to tween plot lines. The first two books I couldn't stop listening to. This book I had to make myself finish. Just because you cuss a lot and have graphic language doesn't mean it's an adult book.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Didn't have a problem with the narrators.
What would have made this romance irresistible?
Re: no more vampire/werewolf romances.
Any additional comments?
Might has well called this Twilight Part VI (or whatever the fuck they're on). Duncan's first two books were spot on about ADULT themed supernatural fiction, but this third book should be placed in the young adult section (minus graphic language).

A stand-out from page one!
Boys and girls; this, *this* is a literary orgasmic experience:
“The last moment before the bite is like the last moment before coming: stopped time and shrugged-off space, an instant of seeing how it is for God. It’s why people in sexual extremis say Oh, God. It’s not a cry to the Divine, it’s a recognition of their own divinity. I was very aware of my mouth open, my heartbeat in my teeth, the obscene ease with which I held him, the room like a frozen grin around us, and beyond it the Californian night and the orange blossom and the desert and the sprawling dark continent’s indifferent consciousness gathering a kind of Meaning.”
And it’s on page 6. Page 6! Which means that there are many more liter-orgasms to come. I feel like I’m at the beginning of a whirlwind love affair.
