    Description

    Kendal Richoux's life began during the reign of Egypt's only female pharaoh. After accepting the opportunity to drink the elixir of the sun, Kendal becomes immortal and the Genesis Clan's slayer. History has taught her the dangers of getting too close to anyone who hasn't harnessed the power of time. 

    After many years, she returns to New Orleans to finish a job she's trained for all her life. It's time for her to face her brother, Henri, and it will have dire consequences to mankind if she fails. 

    Piper Marmande believes Kendal has come to take over the company her family has built over generations. As Kendal prepares for the most important battle of her long life, Piper does her best to uncover every one of Kendal's secrets, making herself a distraction Kendal can't afford as she hunts Henri and Ora, the vampire who seduced him to a life of darkness.

    the story and history are interesting. the narrator sounds pretty bad. very airy, every sentence ends with voice inflection.

    Awesome story, horrible performance

    Luckily I read the book before I bought the audible so I knew it was a good one. The reader had the worst accents I've ever heard. The story is great. It is a nice version of good and evil and a fun twist on vampires. I just couldn't get past the horrible reader.

    Love!

    This is an exciting story that kept me on the edge of my seat, and PERFECT for audio! I love this author and this narrator. I will definitely be listening to future books by Ali and Charley :).

    Great story. Terrible Narration.

    That’s it the story is good but the narrator sounds too light and airy for the story her pacing is off.

    Another great one

    Once Again, Ali Vali doesn't disappoint. Great story and lots of adventures. Loved it. Charlie does a great job bringing the characters to life. Can't wait for the second book.

    Severely lacking, but somewhat fun.

    The book is largely well written, save for the occasional swath where it isn't, but the story it's telling is one lacking tension. The protagonist has no weakness, and neither does the person she's fighting alongside, nor the more compelling love interest. Mostly, it just takes from other stories, largely Buffy, given that the lead is a 'slayer' who hunts vampires with forehead ridges who burst into dust when they're staked or beheaded.

    Then, there's Piper. She is, without a doubt, the least likable love interest I've ever encountered in a book. Every scene she's in is an absolute chore. She's just unpleasant and treats everyone around her terribly.

    Despite this, the book has several good characters and does a few interesting things. Though there were some interesting thematic bits that I wish they'd have touched on more, specifically with a woman from Africa owning slaves in the 1700s.

    The narrator also didn't do a great job. Her delivery was slow, with frequent pauses, to the point that I had to speed up the playback to avoid frustration, and she uses the same voices for two major characters with a lot of scenes together.

    All in all, the book isn't terrible, and at times it's even good, but that's about the most praise I can give it.

    Love, love, love this series!!

    I've always been an Ali Vali fan and this book continued to seal the deal! I'd read this book before and enjoyed it, but the narration brought the book to life. Great job to the narrator for a good character voices and emotion. Overall, excellent book! Highly recommended!

    It's a slog

    Boring, annoying and makes little sense, that would be my summary of the 1st half, since I stopped listening after that. The characters are very unlikeable, especially the protagonist.
    All the flash backs are annoying since they aren't worked into the story in a way that doesn't break the flow of the main story, every time one comes up it destroys the pacing.
    Piper could never be a good business woman the way she is portrayed in the book.
    Kendal does nothing against her brother for the 1st half of the book, but she has time to make business deals and soak in melancholy.
    The reason why they didn't act faster against Kendals brother isn't explained in the 1st half of the book even though the book mentions it quite a few times, wich is a cheap way for a writer to strong arm the reader to read more.

    I'm really quite disappointed since the short plot description on the shop page was a more fulfilling read than what I listened to for 5 hours after buying the audiobook.
    I think the way the story was written does translate very badly to an audiobook, if I had read the book, I probably would've been able to finish the story instead of getting too annoyed to go on after the 1st half of the story.
