Summary

The town of Willow Creek is seemingly free after Remy's sacrifice set off a life-altering chain of events that resulted in the demise of most of the world's vampire population. Sabine flees to her home afterward, except her family has disappeared and a "For Sale" sign is planted in her front yard. Just when she thinks she's lost it all, she's summoned back to Willow Creek Manor. Confused, and almost certainly walking into a trap, she reluctantly returns, only to find that the king of vampires still lives; and he is none other than her Remy. The dead love of her life is alive, but he doesn't quite seem like the same man. With the help of a witch, a ghost, and a longtime enemy, can Sabine bring back the man she fell in love with or will she lose him forever?

ADDICTIVE, FULL OF ACTION... BUT TOO DAMN SHORT

Sabine has to return to the Mansion where she witnessed so much horror and saw the love of her life die. But now she's getting texts asking her to quickly return and when she does she's blown away with what she sees.... Remy's back and he's sitting on a throne - but the scary thing is his eyes.... instead of being the usual beautiful green they're black as night. And that's not the only thing that's changed about him - now he's cold, ruthless and doesn't care at all about Sabine or her feelings, or their relationship or anyone else. Coupled with this she can't find her family, her friends aren't returning her calls and she's only got weeks to become a Witch.

After a lot of angst, heartache and drama all roads lead to only one conclusion but it's going to take a lot of magic, co-conspirators and a great deal of luck because the only way that they can get the old Remy back is to summon a Demon with a grudge. However, things don't quite go according to plan and someone has to make the ultimate sacrifice otherwise Remy's going to be dragged into the Underworld.

A riveting and very enjoyable listen that has heartache, pain and broken dreams as Remy and Sabine struggle to hold on to the love they had but it's almost a lost cause. Thankfully their friends come to the rescue.... but their struggle is great. This was a non stop listen for me which was told mainly from Sabine's POV and the true magic was not delivered by the Vampire Lord, the Witch or the Shapeshifter.... no, it was Joel Froomkin's narration that made this listen stand out, the characters come alive and the plot was magically turned into a wonderful listen.

Worth a credit? Yes, but once again, I didn't use a credit but just bought it because of the price. I'm sad to say goodbye to Willow Creek and all it's inhabitants but wonder what this Author is going to give us next.

It’s a great concept

I really liked the ideas for these stories but I feel that it overall fell flat.

Very awesome! No thanks to the narrator.

I read the first two of these and I couldn't wait to read the third or rather I should say. I listened. I found the whole series to be very entertaining, some parts made me laugh. Some parts definitely made me cry. I give this particular book 5 stars because I truly enjoyed the series. Although I do have to say. Personally I think the ending was a little bit forced. Maybe the author was in a hurry to meet a deadline something I don't know but it definitely felt like to me it could've been a little bit longer but I truly have enjoyed series I absolutely love Remi's character. The only major complaint I have to have and not with just this booklet with the entire series. If the story hadn't intrigued me as much as it did I would stop the first 20 minutes because the narration is completely and utterly horrible. I have to agree with previous reviews that say there are some parts where the guy sounds like he's a sportscaster. If I wasn't intrigued by Remi's attitude and reactions in the first chapters when dealing with Sebastian, I would have stopped listening to it right then in the first book because the so-called Dracula want to be Romanian accident is atrocious and I also have to agree with the previous reviews that say the narrator makes a lot of the characters sound like drag queen and I don't know what he's going for when it comes the which it puts me in mind of Blanche Devereaux Queen want to be. Like I said the story is definitely strong in its entertainment value if it wasn't for that I would stop listening where I got to the first book were probably in the very first few chapters because it was my need to know what was when I happened next. That allowed me to tolerate the incredibly annoying narration actions were just atrociously overdone. I will probably be purchasing this series to keep as soon as I get enough credits

What a way to end this series. All of these stories were so fantastic and exciting. I loved every one of these books. What a great writer you are Stephanie. The narrator Joel was just fantastic as he told each an every story. I can’t wait to listen to more of your books.

Wow

I think she needs to make another book. I want to no what they do in the future. Is she a hybrid(a mix between a with and a vampire)? Does she go see her frien in New York? There's so much that could be in the next book. I still loved this book!it was very good and had a lot of detail!
