I have all the books on my bookcase so love this series anyway. Robert Petkoff was a great narrator and he gave a great performance. The story was an interesting one as to how the ghost and the vampire become fated mates I will leave you to find out it was a good story of recovery, second chances and ultimately love and redemption

I have really enjoyed the Artifact Hunter series by this author so this was my next foray into her work. I have to say the storyline was ok it was a really slow burner. What I really struggled with was the awful pronunciation of the narrator. I will read the next couple of books in the series not listen to them!

When you're mated to an immortal vampire, love is forever. Literally. In another lifetime, six vampires lost their mates - and their mortality - to an unimaginable evil power. Despite the veil of death separating them, the strength of love draws them together across the ages. But now, if they can’t reunite with the reincarnations of their lost soulmates soon, it may just mean the end of the world.

So the first 2 books are narrated really well but Gwendolyn has no idea of an Aussie accent really very poor and annoying, but don’t let it put you off the stories, which are about the vamps finding their soulmates who have been reincarnated. It’s a good premise for the books and tells of a prophecy of 13 vamps defeating the ultimate evil that is the daemon Bael so we know that the stories are following the same theme I look forward to the next 3 and hope there are no more dodgy accents lol..

Discover the origins of the original de Wolfe pack, led by the man known as Warwolfe. Before the Duke of Normandy conquered England, a legend arose. A man so fierce, so brave, and so noble, that the mere whisper of his name could strike both fear and admiration into the hearts of all men. That name is Warwolfe. Gaetan de Wolfe is this man.

This is the storey of Gaeton and Ghislane and how she helped the Norman warrior to rescue Christophe De Lohr. The story is good but long winded and I have to say that the narrator drove me nuts I have the book and that is enough if you can get past the shocking accents it’s decent!

Twenty-two-year-old Ivy Morgan isn't your average college student. She, and others like her, know that humans aren't the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun... and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. Four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she'd sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart. Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He's six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm.

Loved the premise of guardians of gates to the land of the Fae and that the order hunted the ones trapped here . It is also a love story of Ivy and Ren but not mushy (quite naughty and in parts sexy)
Ivy lives with Tink a brownie who she keeps a secret as the order would kill him and they have a lovely friendship even if he does have wierd cravings for dolls and sugar lol...
I would highly recommend it, it's a good listen the narrator was very easy on the ears and I can't wait for the second book Torn to be released hopefully by the end of this year fingers x'd

When 17-year-old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town itself. In spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But not, it seems, the Cullen family. These five adopted brothers and sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception for Bella.

Loved the book it was well written and sensitive. The descriptions of the wolves and the love for them was lovely. Parents were not so good and she seemed very well rounded for a young woman left to herself so much!! But the love story was fantastic and tear jerking so just relax and enjoy !!!!!!!!
