Next to my love of Immortal Guardians, by Dianne Duvall, this is my all-time favorite vampire series. I loved the stories and the more that was written about Aidan and his second in command Mirren, the more you liked them. Their battles with Frank Greisser’s Vampire Tribunal and his evil vamps was simply awesome.
The characters: Aiden and Krys, Mirren and Glory, Cage and Robin, Will and Randa, Mark and Melissa, Ashton, Gadget, and all the others, were all phenomenal. Even Greisser and Simon and Jon were bad guys you loved to hate.
Shay was our heroine and she was great. She’d traveled all over the world with her Peace Corps parents, until they died of a fever in one of the countries they traveled to. When Shay grew up she became an epidemiologist, always looking for cures like the fever that took her parents. Then she spent a wild drunken night with Jon and found herself pregnant and then was kidnapped by Jon and Simon and Greisser in order to give birth to “clean” children for feeding the vamps in the future. And the female babies would be breeders as soon as they were old enough.
Shay and Nik didn’t meet again (they were high school sweethearts and hadn’t seen each other for 16 years) until about 50% of the book and, as usual, there was just a single ounce of sexual attraction, and there was semi-graphic sex, which I skipped over. It’s put there because the publisher says “sex sells” so there it is in the book. BUT the storyline is good enough that I can skip the sex and not miss it. And the F-bomb was dropped 73 times.
As to the narration: All I can say is WOW! Amy McFadden did a totally brilliant job. Both the male and female voices were all different and unique to that person. She laughed and cried and whispered and yelled when the book called for it. And her accents were awesome: Southern, New Orleans, German, whatever it was supposed to be. My favorite narration by her.

I’m sad to see this series come to a close. Despite the feeling that this book was rushed, it tied Penton up in a nice neat bow. I love these characters. And I kind of want to do fanfic to see where they go next, in my mind.
