Publisher's Summary

Young librarian Samantha Watkins has always been perfectly content with her humdrum existence. Never easily fitting in with anyone anywhere, she feels most at ease in silence, among stacks of books. Sam believes in leaving fantasy and drama to the characters in her beloved novels. But one night when she leaves work late, she finds herself center stage in a tale of vengeance and terror.
Samantha is rescued from a gang of vampires by Phoenix, a mysterious and otherworldly man. Suddenly her paranormal adventures take a far more extraordinary turn than any story she's ever read. Phoenix, her savior, is actually a vampire as well, tasked with stopping his peers from killing. With no possibility of returning to her former life, Sam becomes his assistant. Together they investigate a series of mysterious disappearances and attempt to save the human race from a horrible fate. Battling vampires thrills and empowers Sam, but where does she stand with supernatural Phoenix? Could Phoenix, through their work together, become a different man?

Outstanding Supernatural Tale

I very much like how this story unfolds. This book is written in French, then translated into English. The follow-on books are written, but have not yet been translated. The story opens with a misfit librarian, Samantha Watkins, gets mixed up with a vampire. This story is about two people getting to know each other. The plot line has to do with a group of rouge vampires causing serious trouble. Samantha (Human Heroine) and Phoenix (the male Vampire Hero) have to not only navigate their relationship, but his acquaintances and his bosses, yet has to take down their enemies or be faced with their own execution.

This is a THRILLER-romance. You will like this if you like supernatural characters and want a more cerebral story. Amy McFadden does a fabulous job narrating. I salute Stacey Battis for translating this. You cannot tell it was originally written in French.

I recommend this novel, you won't be able to stop listening. I can't wait till the next installment is released. Give it read.
