Summary

Pandora is the first in a series of novels linked together by the fledgling vampire David Talbot, who has set out to become a chronicler of his fellow Undead.

The novel opens in present day Paris in a crowded café, where David meets Pandora. She is 2,000 years old, a child of the millennia, the first vampire ever made by the great Marius. David persuades her to tell the story of her life through the ages.

Pandora carries you back to her mortal girlhood in the world of Caesar Augustus, where she meets and falls in love with the handsome, charismatic, lighthearted, still-mortal Marius. She is forced to flee in fear of assassination by conspirators plotting to take over the city. You then follow her to the exotic port of Antioch, where she is destined to be reunited with Marius, now immortal and haunted by his vampire nature, who will bestow on her the Dark Gift as they set out on the fraught and fantastic adventure of their two turbulent centuries together.

Pandora is Volume 1 of The New Tales of the Vampires.

Great abridged version.

I made the mistake of thinking this audiobook was the full text. Great voice though.

Great Performance of a Good Story

Janet McTeer's performance as Pandora is spectacular. I would love to listen to her do more books from this series. (Or at least the unabridged version of this one). A talented reader makes a huge difference. I hope she continues making more audiobooks.

The story itself is good, we get a deep look at the history of the main character, a female vampire named Pandora. I personally would have liked to see a little more action for a vampire story, but it was still good overall.

MAJESTIC ❤

Love this story of Love, History, Loss and once again ... HUMAN NEED.
Pandora pulls you in, not by force or invitation but by seduction and power.

Once Lydia, Now Pandora

I really enjoyed Janet McTeer's narration. Completely believable and I was able to see the story being told. Although very short, still entertaining. I liked it. I really did. I'd love to explore more of the love shared by Pandora and Marius. Will she find him in New Orleans? What dark being awaits Pandora's arrival? The vampire Lestat?!
