Publisher's Summary

Her source of power is her greatest weakness. Tough, ruthless, and loyal, Jared Johnson has always been a force to be reckoned with: first as an outlaw and now as a vampire. Caught in a war between immortals, he doesn't have time to waste. But when a female vampire is attacked, he can't just walk away. He expects a quick good-bye, but what he gets is a vulnerable woman who intrigues and seduces while giving away nothing of the secrets holding her hostage.
Raisa may not have physical strength, but she's smart and she's survived as a vampire longer than most. She's done it by keeping to herself, but that's about to change. Forced to accept Jared's protection, Raisa finds it increasingly difficult to resist his forbidden allure while keeping the secret that could destroy them both.

"McCarty has done an amazing job with this alternate reality paranormal romance.... So engrossing, it's hard to remember that this is just a story." (Romantic Times)

Kind of boring and slow

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The book just moved kind of slowly. There needed to be more action in it. Even the "love scenes" were pretty boring (which is uncommon for McCarthy's books, typically).

Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah McCarty again?

I'm not sure if I will listen to any more books from this series. Her other series is really good, though.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite performers for audiobooks, especially for Jeaniene Frost's books. She did a great job in this book, as usual.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The only reaction this book sparked was......boredom. I had to force myself to finish listening.

Hell's 8 please!!!

I like Sarah McCarty. I think she is a great writer. However, I didn't care for this series. I couldn't get past the "energy" between the vampires that was constant throughout the series. The narration was wonderful. I am a big fan of Tavia Gilbert and I know that she is good with voice changes for each character. With that in mind, I was able to listen to the story through to the end. With all of the options on the paranormal and vampires and werewolves, I think this series is mediocre. I would recommend the Hell's Eight series 10 times before this one. If you want a good vampire series with enjoyable romance and lust as well as action, try The Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost.
