Publisher's Summary

Afterlife...just some gothic nightclub where gossip is fuelled by the presence of a rich and unearthly, handsome family or afterlife...the strange place where time seems to stand still and guests feel the presence of something more powerful held within the confines of the VIP.
Keira is new to this small, cold town and is running from a past that seems to feast on her darkest memories. She finds living with her sister away from English soil to be just the ticket to the new life she is trying desperately to find. So when the offer of a job at the infamous gothic nightclub Afterlife comes along she thinks that lady luck has finally found her. That is until its seductively dark and forbidding owner Dominic Draven sets eyes on her.
All at once she is captivated and plunged into a world she never knew existed, but the deeper her obsession with Draven becomes, the harder it is to decide...should she stay and continue to work within the shadows of the supernatural or should she run from a madness she thinks may consume her?
Warning: This audiobook not only has sexual content but is amazingly addictive, with its dark mystery, haunting horror, seductive twists and one sexy dark lord that has the listener drooling every time the name Draven is heard! This audiobook has been written by an UK author with a mad sense of humour. Which means the following story contains a mixture of Northern English slang, dialect, regional colloquialisms and other quirky spellings that have been intentionally included to make the story and dialogue more realistic for modern day characters.

European Narrator

Storyline was great, for the length of the book it went by fairly quickly. the Narrator was really good, however her impression of how Americans talk is slightly insulting. she pretty much made us sound like slow rednecks high on paint fumes. She does get better in the second book and I still recommend listening to this one.

It is a good book yet it is NOT in many ways

This is a difficult book to review. It is a good book yet it is not in many ways.

I’d like to start by saying I absolutely love long audio books. With that being said, this book is way too long. The reason is that it is filled with chapters of absolutely NOTHING! Meaning the book does not move forward. Nothing is accomplished or revealed during these long winded chapters. It is so long winded that you forget what questions you are waiting to be answered causing you to drift off, and lose interest. This makes listening frustrating as the story itself is very, very intriguing and just a plain good story.

The author has great talent in telling a good story, but the way she tells it is indeed frustrating. I understand dragging a story out a little to build suspense but it is possible to drag it out way too long and risking the reader completely not caring anymore about what happens in the end. Throughout the book there are lots of contradictions. For example, the heroin is special in that she cannot be controlled by the Hero’s kind, yet the hero can control her in all of the sexual scenes due to her being emotional. I would be better for the story if he and his kind simply could not control her period/at no time.

With all that being said, I will read the next book in the series as it is better than a lot of the crap out in this genre and the story is just that good. Let’s just say, I will be fast forwarding through the unnecessary stuff. Although this series is about a young girl who has major self-esteem issues, it is not necessary to make her completely stupid! She is portrayed as so utterly stupid so much so that lots of readers will not be able to relate and it will take away from the believability. Cutting this story down several hours, and adding multiple points of views along with a narrator who can expertly read with DIFFERENT voices, will do wonders for this series. The narrator’s male voices are horrific.

Pros:
Excellent story
Excellent characters
Good action
Intriguing
Lots of supernatural shenanigans

Cons:
Heroin is utterly stupid unnecessarily
Lots of unnecessary fluff not needed
Heroin falls down 95% of the book
Heroin cries 95% of book
Heroin’s hair is described 95% of book (unnecessary)
Heroin being a complete doormat, falling down constantly, and being utterly stupid all at once will be too much for some readers.
Major issues are described without addressing them at multiple times throughout this book
On the small occasion that a major issue is addressed, it either is contradictory or not really addressed
Although the book is about supernatural/magic, there are Lots of things just simply don’t make sense
