Checking down in the comments, it seems like everyone's biggest sticking point, is some of the accents of the characters.
But you quickly get used to the accent and grow rather fond of Tavia's impression of Bones. Its definitely not an upper crust poshy accent (by any stretch of the imagination), BUT I can't say I've never heard something similar whilst traveling about the UK.
To be quite honest, aside from some occasional mistakes here and there, it smoothes out over the first few chapters of the Night Huntress series, and by this book its kind of settled into its own feel.
Tavia's expressiveness and general quality of narration, matches perfectly with Frost's witty and fiery style. Tavia has truly set a benchmark for me by which I tend to judge other audiobooks, and be assured, there are a number of ab's on audible that I won't purchase simply because I can't deal with the voice.
So take it from me. I've munched down every single book from Jeaniene Frost in the past 2 month's and I'm totally ready for more. So don't let a few bad comments scare you away. Listen to the clip and just try it on for size! Between this series and the Charlene Harris Southern Vamp series with Sookie & narrator Johanna Parker, I haven't been able to find another combination that has lived up to these in both quality and the ability to pique my interest though the entire series.

This was a great read. The twists and turns of the book was unexpected and the romance was nice and steamy. I think Tavia Gilbert is a WONDERFUL narrator and she did a great job with all of the voices and accents, she makes the different characters believable. LOVED IT!!!

The second spinoff from the Night Huntress series, is again, another winner from Jeaneine Frost. Now overtaking Twilight as my favourite vampire Fantasy author Frost is an addictive writer, once I start one of her books I am hard pushed to stop listening until the end.I have now listened to all of the Night Huntress books and this was my favourite, I had fallen for Mencheres from the first time his character was introduced and so a whole book with him as the hero was a real treat.
Mencheres is Bones?s Grandsire, a sort of father figure and a superpowered master vampire who refers to him self as ?older than dirt?. Kira is a straight talking private investigator, with a pure heart and strong sense of morality. One night on her way home from work Kiras stumbles on Mencheres being beaten by ghouls which starts and adventure that changes her life forever.
I loved both Mencheres and Kiras characters, their chemistry is tantalising and Frost teases you with it until you are practically screaming at the characters to finally get together! If you love Vampire stories but wish there was something a little more 'grown up' than Twilight then look no further! However don't start with this book, get the first novel and work your way through the whole series. You won't regret it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes I would recommend this book - it shows the back story to part of the Night Huntress.
What other book might you compare Eternal Kiss of Darkness to, and why?
A Drop of Crimson another book that shows the back story to another character from the Night Huntress series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes it was but not possible as I cannot listen continually for such a length of time but if it were in book form you could say I couldn't put it down.
Any additional comments?
Eternal Kiss of Darkness is an action and lustful story. Fits in well with the rest of the series. I will be watching for any new books in the series. I have no doubt I will listen to this again.
