Publisher's Summary

Matheus Taylor didn't ask to be murdered. To be fair, the percentage of people actually asking to be murdered is probably small enough to be safely ignored, but he felt it was worth stating regardless. His life might have been ordinary, but it was his life and he wasn't done with it yet.
Quin didn't care.
A 1,700-year-old Roman, Quintus Livius Saturnius had a different view of morality than most people. Killing Matheus and hijacking his undead existence seemed perfectly acceptable to him.
Now, Matheus spends his nights running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation, and defying a mysterious new threat to the vampires within his city. Not that he set out to do any defying; he just wanted to be left alone. Unfortunately, that was never going to happen.

Surprisingly good!

Wasn't sure what to expect from this book as I don't often gravitate to the vampire genre., but i like sarcastic back and forth dialog so I decided to try it.
I'm glad I used the credit because I loved it so much I immediately got the 2nd audiobook.
The narrator was out of this world and made this book even better!

Any additional comments?

I didn't read the book yet, I listened to 90% of audio book and I have to say it was actually a fairly good audiobook! I didn't finish the audiobook yet but I went ahead and bought the kindle version as well.

The narrator is very talented and I absolutely love his style and skill.

I really enjoy the take on vampires in this series and really enjoyed the characters and their relationships (or lack of lol) It is definitely a good read/listen. Highly recommend this!

For those looking for the PWP type story, this is not for you. No spoilers, but there are moments that tickled my inner fujoshi.

I have already bought the 2nd installment of this series in kindle and audio version. I can't wait to read more of what is to come!

I read some of the reviews and saw that there is a 3rd book! I REALLY hope it comes out soon! Because once I finish the 2nd book I will want to know more!

I wish I could return it!

Would you ever listen to anything by Amy Fecteau again?

Not sure

Any additional comments?

Sometimes it takes a couple of chapters to get into a book and I usually persist for the sake of having paid for the book but with this book I could not get into the story and have only managed 3 chapters.

Brilliant - new author to me

Any additional comments?

I loved the ambivalence and the sarcasm,the to and fro of conversation and the way unexpected relationships develop. The scene I enjoyed the most was 'the kiss', this is not a book full sex - there is one kiss and it is long awaited and pleased me a lot. The scene that moved me the most was the scene with Quin in a prison cell and Matheus in hand and leg cuffs talking through an intercom. This is a very different vampire story - I have read a lot and would now count this amongst my top twenty. I can see lots of leads for further books and I will be buying them. As you can tell I really liked it.
