Summary

A week before Lenore Warwick's 21st birthday, she's kidnapped by the brooding and dangerous stranger with cold eyes and a lethal touch, who has been stalking her on San Francisco's fog-shrouded streets. Absolon "Solon" Stavig isn't your average criminal though. He's a centuries-old vampire who's caught between wanting to kill Lenore and wanting to save her.

You see Lenore, too, is a vampire. She just doesn't know it yet.

Taken by a pair of vampire slayers when she was just an infant, Lenore was raised never knowing her true nature. All Lenore knows is that she has (normal) parents who love her, that she's exceptionally smart, and she's squeamish around blood. But once she turns 21, she'll fully turn into a vampire, and Solon hopes he'll be there to guide her, opening her eyes to her deepest hunger...both sexual and otherwise.

But this turning can't be kept a secret. Soon both slayers and vampires are hunting Lenore, with only Solon and his unpredictable motley crew of vampires to save her.

Contains mature themes.

Perfect

Not a dull moment, Perfect balance of scenes all throughout. Thoroughly enjoyed. Narrators voice for solon obscures my ability to picture him correctly though lol

Not for me

I didn’t like the narration at all, she switches between very breathy speech and sudden louder speech and the accents are terrible.The story felt kind of cringe but this isn’t the kind of thing I usually read so maybe it’s just the genre is not for me.

thoroughly enjoyable

the narration was spot on, its told from the female lead character point of view and the narration captures her very well, the other characters are also well performed. all this brings the story and the spice together perfectly. looking forward to listening to the next book.

Loved the book, but...

I love Karina Halle's books! But this narrator was... Very bad. The sound quality is also not as good as most audiobooks, and she was reading pretty fast and breathy, and with no life. She sounded really bored,and that made all the characters sound the same, sadly.

Story was very nice tho! Loved it!

More story line, less boinking

Like many other reviewers I found the narrators voice difficult to to listen too, however it was the long long descriptive sex scenes that had me reaching for the skip forward button.
Not fast paced, more of a love story set against a vampire background - twilight meets 50 shades.
Not my thing to be honest

Really good storie!

I’ll be honest, the narration was kind of annoying as it was weirdly breathy all the time. But I would still recommend coz the stories is super fun and spicy which was great!

Good story bad narrator

I haven’t read the vampire book in a long time so I really enjoyed this read. I would say listen, but unfortunately the British accent that the narrator was trying to do for the male lead was absolutely terrible. I’ve never heard a worse British accent in my life and I live in England.

Spicy Vampire Romance

I loved the story but wished I would’ve read it instead of listening to the audiobook (the narration wasn’t good and I think some aspects would’ve been better if I had read it)
However, I’ll probably pick up the second one! 🥰

A bit slow but good

Intriguing premise. Rich history. Good characters and great steam. Would have preferred a faster plot.
