Summary

They’ve exterminated an entire bloodline, purging the world of the only creatures vampires dread. Or so they think.

Chloe used to study hard and do everything right to pave a bright future, but children sometimes have to pay for their parents’ sins, and Chloe’s tab is pretty steep. At 26, when a series of attacks forces her to seek refuge in the notorious Institute of Paranormal Studies, Chloe sees it as a second chance to achieve her goals. She believes she has nothing to lose. She couldn’t be more mistaken. 

Levi has had centuries to observe the mortals and immortals of this world. He knows what the sassy woman who entered his domain is at first glance. A relic of the old days...so ancient that even an elder lord descended from the first immortals has reason to fear her. 

He should slit her throat while he has the chance. 

He should.

After Darkness Falls is one in a series of stand-alone paranormal romance novels.

flat

it took me a while to get into this book, the womans voice sounds so auto tuned and robot like. it is a good storyline but there isn't a lot of character development, there could have been moments of strong character development but I felt like parts were just skimmed over or not needed. her relationship with Levi just feel forced an unnatural, I didn't really feel any chemistry between them, to be honest they hardly even spoke. the storyline was predictable, but that's okay if it's executed well, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, it was really flat and anticlimactic. it was an okay story, maybe good for a 13 year old if you take the sex scene out which wasn't really that sexual anyway. it just seemed really random.

great read

loved this book so much I have read it twice. the only off putting part about listening is that there are two different people reading and to be fair the woman is more than capable of reading this book by herself. love the twist and turns of the book and is a great start to the series.

After Darkness Falls

Loved this story! It was so different from other vampire stories and loved the characters. I noticed book 2 is about Bash. I'm kind of sad because I want more Chloe and Levi! Loved the narration! Lucy Rivers is one of my favorite narrators

*truly entertaining*

Sage has it people! The "it" factor readers hunger for. Staying within tried and true parameters, May wrote a paranormal story of a woman living in constant fear, dreaming of a better tomorrow. With limited resources, her options were nonexistent, until her employer decided to sponsor her and fulfill her dreams of attending Europes paranormal academy. With a semi-unified diversity of students and faculty, the academy is everything Chloe hoped for until Vampire royalty suspects she's their doom. The story is full of wit, charm, sexual tension and fascinating bloodlines! I'm definitely moving on to book two.

Not your average romance

I liked it. If you like your books dirtier this isn't it, but good story and characters. Nice twist also.

incomplete for a stand alone.

my big problem with this book is their are two main characters. Levi and Chloe. Levi gets less then half the chapters in this book. so the romance feels very like random between them. The hunter main Jack? Is in it more. I get you need to set up for other books but if your gonna do it so much your main romance character is less time then a side character in the book, your doing something wrong. You need to give Levi another book with Chloe their store felt not even half way done. spend maybe 6 chapters on side characters and sprinkle them in like you did Levi in this book. And it hurts cause Levi seemed interesting. And so was Chloe but we didn't get to know them. It shouldn't have been a stand alone, they need at least one more book were Levi gets equal screen time with Chloe instead of random flash backs for 2 paragraphs to make it make sense. Sorry just never read a book where an author puts what should have been a main character by all intense and purposes in the back ground of SIDE characters... like come on. voice was good though the female voice doing Levi would give him a French mixed w English accent and the male actor who did like 5 chapters as Levi just used his regular accent, which was dreamy. get this one on sale!

Ehh!!

This book should have been 2 hrs long, the unnecessary filler was killing me. I like the overall idea and the last 3 chapters totally saved this book.

Really?

I couldn't finish it. It was so so boring. I don't know how anyone could have given this book more than a one star rating.
