The Pacific Northwest is home to lush forests and constant rain, to lumberjacks and computer geeks, especially those of the vampire kind.
Sophia, beautiful and deadly, has spent the last 100 years dancing her way through the balmy nights and hot-blooded men of South America. But when her Sire sends an urgent summons, Sophia rushes home to Vancouver only to find he has disappeared, leaving nothing behind but three dead vampires and a letter with Sophia's name on it.
Colin Murphy, a former Navy SEAL, came to the Northwest seeking a quiet place to heal the scars earned in more than a decade at war. But when someone starts killing local vampires and torturing their mates, Colin takes on the mantle of a warrior once again as he sets out to find the killers and do whatever it takes to stop them, even if that means hunting with vampires.
Following her Sire's trail of death to a small town in northern Washington, Sophia unexpectedly discovers the heat of a South American night in Colin's arms. But too soon, Sophia and Colin find themselves in a race to uncover the killers before the next dead vampire becomes Sophia herself.

Once again this was a fab story line and good characters but the Heroine's voice was rubbish - poor Sophia sounded like she was trailer trash and not Spanish aristocracy! Still worth a listen!
Not the usual way you think of someone becoming a vampire Lord. Sophia had so many twists and turns in the story that it never at any point became boring or stale. Next is Duncan and I'm really looking forward to his story.
"Finally FEMALE Vampire Lord!"
In the Top 15
Sophia is the first female Vampire Lord. She has to claim her rightful spot in a world dominated by male vampires. She also has to claim her human who has reappeared in her very long life.
She has the range that makes differentiation between the characters awesome. She can keep the voices consistent.
Not really an extreme reaction. Just satisfaction. Sophia had to work pretty hard to get her man to forgive her. Lucky he loved her so much.
"PERFECTION.... ONE OF MY TOP VAMPIRE SERIES"
I can't say these books keep getting better because they have ALL been fantastic and so this was another mind blowing visit into the lives and loves of the loveable characters in the Vampires in America series. Although this was called Sophia I did think that Cyn and Raphael stole the show and Sophia seemed to be a secondary character a lot of the time. But I'm not complaining because I love the chemistry that Raphael, the most powerful, respected and charismatic Alpha Vampire Lord and his mate Cyn have and the care and understanding they each have for one another's positions and it shows in their deep love, sensual scenes and the grief and rage Raphael went through when his Cyn was injured (sigh)..... it makes me want to go back and listen to their story again (book 1).
Someone was killing vampires as they slept, Sophia had to go to Raphael's domain on the orders of her missing Sire and that's where she meets again the love of her immortal life Colin a human ex Navy SEAL, Colin the man she could never forget, Colin the man she had to give up, Colin the man she still desperately loves and now she has to work with him to find the threat and 'dispose' of it. But first Colin had been working with Cyn trying to uncover clues, rule out or dig deeper as suspicions grew, puzzle pieces fell into place and then the unthinkable happened.... which brought out and unleashed the true power and unstoppable wrath of Raphael.
What an exciting, gripping and entertaining listen as each well crafted scene played out with drama, humor, passion, sex, danger, intrigue, heartache and thrills that only leaves you panting for more. And, to top it off, Traci Odom's narration brought each individual character to life, injected all the right amount of emotion for each scene and, in doing so, created a perfect listen.
Worth a credit? This was two love stories in one..... a rekindled lost love and a strong, passionate and "if you die I die" love - both had heat, sex and intensity as the evil enemy was slowly being stalked and both were all consuming. This gripping story was told from four POV's and was, IMO, another smoothly written and very creditworthy book by D B Reynolds.
"Awesome book awesome series"
I love this series and Sophia is no exception. This story is more about the characters coming together centering on Raphael as the leader but having read all the books I see where Sophia and her mate are important to the overall plot If you like vampires romance don't miss this series ! Looking forward to audible picking up the rest - narrator is great too I can't imagine anyone else speaking for cyn
D b Reynolds writing style is fast paced exciting and funny in places to relieve the tension - I think the author in this genre who is equally entertaining is Dianne Duvall
Yes she is awesome and makes the story come alive never get boring - can't imagine anyone else being Cynthia!
Loved it ! Have read twice and listened twice already!
Can't wait for Duncan !
"D.B. REYNOLDS "ROCKS HARD""
TIME TO HUNT
I LOVE THE THRILL OF THE STORY, THE MYSTERY, THE SUSPENSE, THE ADVENTURE, ETC.. HOWEVER....I COULD USE A "LESS" GRAPHIC SEX SCENES - MAYBE 1, MAX 2 AND THE REST COULD BE 'FADE TO BLACK" = 'PLEASE'!!!!
TRACI BRINGS YOU INTO THE BOOK, SHE MAKES THE STORY 'REAL'
TIME TO HUNT
PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE TAP "DOWN" THE SEX SCENES - I THINK 1 OR 2 IS ENOUGH THE REST COULD BE "FADE TO BLACK" - IT'S THE STORY THAT KEEPS ME BUYING THE BOOKS - NOT THE GRAPHIC SEX!!!!
I have enjoyed each of the stories but so far this has been the best. It is always different when the female gets the man.
"Great story, narration so-so."
I very much enjoyed this fourth installment of the Vampires in America series.
I was not particularly impressed with the narrator. She gave several of the male characters fairly high-pitched voices, which did not fit the characters at all. Otherwise, she did a very reasonable job with the narration.
"WOW - home run for traci odom...sophia's voice !"
love the narrator
a strong female lead for vampire fans - YEA!
when sophia met her vamps in Canada for the first time on the mansion steps
