After listening to Immortal Rules which was an absolutely awesome listen, I had to go back and get this prequel to the story. Dawn of Eden laid a good foundation to the story. If you like stories involving vampires coupled with the intense fight to prevent human extinction and all told by a really good narrator, this audiobook is a gem.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This book is a Harlequin Luna imprint, described by its editor as a place for "female-focused fantasy." Well, it's poorly written and irredeemably cliched even for a Harlequin of any imprint, but it currently has a 4.1 average rating so it must appeal to people who like this sort of thing.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I have been craving light and humorous lately, and Carl Hiassen's Skinny Dip is fun enough so far. It reminds me of an episode of the Rockford Files with a sprinkling of Columbo.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
It wasn't the easiest book to read because the dialogue is so inane, but Therese Plummer does not do male voices well at all. I also found it irritating that the Illinois farmer was read as as a stereotypical southern hick.
What character would you cut from Dawn of Eden?
All of them.
Any additional comments?
There is a rather graphic sex scene. My understanding is that this is the prequel to a series geared more to YA audiences. This is definitely not YA. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
