Publisher's Summary

Afton is not like other college freshmen. She drinks blood. Rescued from the horrific Nightshade universe as a baby, the half-ling Afton is manipulated into returning to the world of her birth, where danger shadows her every move.
Lorenz never expected to have to fulfill the treaty he entered years ago. He is shocked when he sees Afton for the first time. In his eyes, he only sees the beautiful vision she will transform into, rather than the waif who is terribly malnourished. Forced to live up to the terms of the agreement, he joins with the half-vampire, half-human daughter of his adversary.
Determined to safeguard his soul mate, Lorenz will do everything in his power to protect her. Will an ancient order dedicated to the purity of vampire blood succeed in eliminating Afton? Find out what happens when a vampire and a half-ling soul mate come together.

Nightshade ~ A Dark and Dangerous Universe!

Nightshade universe painted a vivid story about a dark and dangerous world created by Evelyn Ledgerman that both fascinated and appalled me, but I devoured every minute of it! With each macabre scene, I was pulled in deeper to a world where showing weakness could get you killed. While this universe got my attention, it was the character's Afton, and Lorenz that kept me listening to this story almost non-stop.

After a long search, Afton's father was able to locate her on earth, and had her brought back to the Nightshade universe to fulfill a contract that was formed years ago. To complete this contact, she must join with Lorenz, a very powerful vampire. Her first encounter with her father showed her just how terrifying, and brutal vampires actually are. Because she is half-vampire, he forces her to drink blood directly from the humans, which makes her sick and weak. When Afton learns she's to join with another vampire, she is actually a little relieved knowing she will be leaving her father's hive.

Lorenz is not happy when he hears Afton has been returned to Nightshade universe, and does not look forward to joining with a half-ling. After spending weeks avoiding the inevitable, he finally makes it to the hive to uphold his end of the contract. As soon as he lays eyes on Afton, he's drawn to her, and knows what she will become after they "join." In the beginning, their relationship and romance came across as awkward, but as the story progressed, these scenes become more natural.

Unfortunately, Afton's half-human side puts her in a lot of danger. When evil forces and Malice come for her, Lorenz will stop at nothing to keep her safe, and will make alliances and ruthless bargains, but Afton is tired of being a victim.

David Brenin's performance was great! The characters were easily identifiable, and he portrayed the different emotions throughout the story.

Great start to a new vampire romance series! Unique with multiple worlds!

I really enjoyed this book! It was much better than I anticipated. I have read many books about vampires in this genre but this series is unique. The more I listened the more it sucked me in. I listened to it pretty quickly!

The author is great at creating a foundation for the story and building layer after layer of interesting and captivating details. I highly recommend you stick with the story and don't give up after a few chapters.

The alternate universes, different types of vampires, half vampires, and other supernatural people are presented in a very creative and interesting way.

This is a HEA book with no cliffhangers!!! You can read it as a stand alone! But I'm definitely looking forward to the next book!

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life!

This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
