Publisher's Summary

There is a vampire war brewing in the underworld, and at the center of it all is Damali Richards, spoken word artist and Vampire Huntress. But she is not just any Vampire Huntress, she is the millenium Neteru: a woman so potentially powerful that the vampire world is about to invoke a bloody battle that threatens to spill over onto her streets in order to posses her.
It's just a matter of who will get to her first. Fallon Nuit, a rogue vampire, is one of the most powerful Damali has ever encountered, and he has allied himself with the deadly Amanrath demons in order to claim her.
But the Vampire Council has plans for her as well. And now an unlikely variable has entered into the equation, an ex-lover now turned vampire with an agenda of his own. And she must risk trusting him once more if they are to survive.

Great Book...Terrible Narration

This is a priceless series from beginning to end. I was so excited to see that the first two books in the series were on Audible. However, after my first listen I wanted to throw my mp3 player out of the window. The narration is just not up to par and actually makes the listen difficult. Hillary Huber does not come close to capturing the urban genre and feel of the characters. She sounds like a cross between Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Can we please replace Hillary Huber with Bahni Turpin or Lisa Renee Pitts...Narration can make or break an audio book. Had it not been for the fact that I'm an avid fan of this series and have read every book, I would have given it one star, just because of the narrator. However, I've given it four stars instead of the five it deserves...Please use someone else for the remaining books....Please, please, please.....

Great series, bad narrator

I have been a fan of the Vampire Huntress Series since the beginning. I'm very excited that Audible has the first 2 books in the series available. Unfortunately, the narrator of these books really detracts from the greatness of the stories. Ms. Huber is excellent at the basic narration of the book but the voices that she uses while trying to capture the urban feel of the characters is quite literally laughable. At times it borders on being stereotypically offensive. The publisher (Penguin?) of Ms. Banks' series really needs to look into getting a narrator that can fully capture the spirit and characters of this wonderful series.

Because of the narrator I am forced to give this book 4 stars instead of 5.
