Lara Adrian's captivating Vampire mythology is completely unique. She has taken one or two of the "Hollywood" elements, but oh my goodness, the rest of her Vampire world is unlike anything I have read before and I cannot get enough of the richly detailed backstory that is flawlessly woven into the main story. The exposition is paced perfectly - giving enough detail to be relevant and intriguing, adding more suspense and mystery to the novel as the plot progresses.
We are immediately swept up into the story by Hillary Huber's sultry voice. Her pacing and timing are perfect and she is wonderful at breathing life into the characters. Each male has a distinct personality which she brings to life with clever and competent use of different accents and varying timbre, making it easy to listen and envision the story as it happens. Not a lot of female narrators can pull off the smoldering Alpha-Male characters without sounding androgynous and awkward. Hillary's portrayal of Lucan is just plain sexy. She adds color and character to each male in the book - breathing just the right amount of passion, restraint, desire, anger, self-loathing and acidic hatred into each character. Her female voices are decent, but they all seemed to sound the same to my ears. If Hillary continues narrating the series, the only thing that I would view as an area of development would be for to give the female characters a bit more of a range and flavor, as she does so amazingly with the male characters.

I love this book. I have listened to it three times. Great plot with just the right amount of action, suspense and hot sensuality! I can't wait until Kiss of Crimson comes out on audio. The narrator was excellent!
