Publisher's Summary

Warlord Vladimir Barbu has seized control of Transylvania, but his claim to the throne remains anything but certain. The king of Hungary opposes his rule, his people despise him, and the high priestess needed to crown him has vanished without a trace. Refusing to see his ambitions thwarted, he hires an assassin to hunt her down.… Killing is the only life Xavian Ramir knows. But now the elite assassin wants out, vowing to start anew after one last job.…
High priestess Afina Lazar is running for her life, desperate to protect the magical amulet entrusted to her care. When Barbu’s hired killer finds her, she knows her only chance of stopping the warlord’s rise to power is to convince this enigmatic - and handsome - hunter that she is more valuable alive than dead. Together, they will undertake a dramatic adventure through a magical world where love and redemption come at a terrible price.

BOOK 1 of 7 & A MYTHICAL MASTERPIECE

Let me first get the narration issue out the way - she was so slow it was painful but thankfully I could double speed her but, in my opinion, this choice of narrator has resulted in a lesser rating.

The actual plot was exciting and gripping set in a fictional world filled with with interesting characters, imaginary creatures, mysteries and magic. Coupled with this is the romance between Xavian and Afina which is touching as both of them need saving from themselves and, as they finally learn to trust in each other, their love grows to become an unbeatable force which will be needed for the forthcoming war between good v evil.

Worth a credit? Yes and I'm ready to spend the other 6 credits on the remaining books in the series but please Publishers/Audible try a different narrator and fellow listeners maybe listen to the sample first to judge for yourself.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Good book, annoying narration!

The book was generally very good. However, the narration was unbearable. The narrator has a great voice and conveys emotion very well. The problem was in the speed of her speech. She read SO SLOWLY and put LONG pauses in every few words and at the end of each sentence. It really affected my ability to pay attention and follow the story. I had to force myself to continue listening to the book and seriously considered returning it several times. I won't listen to another book read by her.

I think this series has a lot of potential and I will probably get the next book in hard copy.
