Publisher's Summary

Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire's private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Svente vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like.
Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself. The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared's co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Svente female.

Here Be Feminists Who Hate Women

I read this ebook a few months back and liked it well enough but it did not withstand the test of a repeat experience. The Main character, Sam, sets herself up as some great bastion of feminine strength and idealism fighting the vampire patriarchy yet misses no opportunity to disparage the other women in the book. Nary a chapter goes by that she doesn't sneeringly compare herself to the hero's consort. The story had potential, but Sam's attitude toward other women killed it for me.

Justine Eyre's voice work was quite good. However, P.J. Ochlan should stay far, far away from any roles involving a British accent.

Worth the Wait!!

I've been waiting for this story to become "Audible" since I first read this story on my Kindle several years ago (and I re-read too). Being American, I had some "editing" issues but the story was really interesting and a new twist on vampire "life." There are more stories with Sam and Jared that are totally worth reading and then waiting for the Audible version. Praise for whoever decided to use a male and female to read Sam's and Jared's parts, IT WAS PERFECT. So, Great Story (get a copy) and enjoy the trip to an island.

Downfalls of multiple narrators

So disappointed with the narration. Justine Eyre uses BBC English but pronounces several words using American pronunciation. Also when Sam the heroine is being read by Justine Eyre she has a BBC English accent most of the time with occasional cockney , when P.J Ochlan is narrating Sam has a cockney accent. I think I will just read the hard copy.

Intriguing

I really enjoyed listening to this book, I don’t usually listen to books as I find it easy to loose interest when it is an audio book but the narrator kept me interested the whole way through. I love the story and find Sam to be a smart mouthed, crazy badass chick. I am looking forward to the next book being released on audio.

Megh

I wanted to like the storyline. I really did. I enjoy stronge female leads, but she was whiny and a bigger sexist than those she complained about. The obnoxious female lead character made it difficult to finish the story. I also didn't like the narrators. They read too quickly instead of creating realistic characters and dialog. It was cheesy.
