Summary

A serial killer, vampire, and a hotheaded wolf shifter fight to the death in this edge of your seat paranormal thriller. Who will survive? 

Vlad the Impaler is the oldest living vampire in history. His life is an endless span of long, dark nights fighting shifters and the enigmatic hunters known as the Seeker Society. But when fate puts Nita Franks, the alpha of the Kiana Pack, in Vlad's path, things turn south with a quickness. Nita can't be trusted, no matter how much she wants Vlad to believe otherwise. Even worse, the Seeker Society has unleashed a dark plot to end Vlad's very existence and resurrect an ancient evil that could ultimately destroy them all.

Brilliant

The Rise of Vlad, the third book in The Seeker series, is a brilliantly-written, engaging, and entertaining vampire paranormal thriller. I was wholly captivated by the storyline and characters. Ditter Kellen is one of my go-to authors; I absolutely love her style and her creativity. Her Seeker series has the perfect balance of suspense, intrigue, mystery, passion, and romance. Excellent narration by Sommer Hines, she capturing the characters' personalities, emotions, and intensity of the scenes very nicely, bringing the story to life. Overall, The Rise of Vlad was a splendid and enjoyable listen, one I strongly recommend. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Exciting

This was a very exciting and enjoyable story. The storyline was very intriguing and kept me interested from beginning to end. Though this was the third book in the series, I didn’t feel as though I missed much, however I would enjoy listening to the first two to get to know the characters more. I thought the narrator did an excellent job with all of the voices. I did receive a free copy of this audiobook however have voluntarily provided this unbiased review.

very good

This book is part of a series but this is the first one I've listened to. So you can enjoy it as a stand alone. I really like Vlad stories and this one is quite good.

The Rise of Vlad

This series keeps getting better with every book! Vlad finally finds his mate after many years but the twist that brings it to be definitely makes for a very good story. I have enjoyed listening to this series since the beginning and can only hope their will be more.

Good book.

Having not read any of the other books from this series, I am glad that I was able to enjoy this one without feeling lost. Nita and Vad are wonderfully written characters and their story is great. Vlad never expecting to feel desire for a Nita a female shifter, nor for her to desire and want Vlad. Initially he thinks saving her life is just repaying a debt, never knowing the outcome. Bring the seekers into the mix and this story brings in a fast paced adventure.

This third book has given me life! The narration has gotten better with each book and the story lines most definitely have too. I am interested in seeing where Ditter takes these characters.

Great Read

The Rise of Vlad was a great conclusion to The Seeker Trilogy by Ditter Kellen. Vlad is the strongest vampire who is also known as Vlad the Impaler. Nita Frank’s is an alpha wolf shifter who was rescued by Vlad. This rescue was something that will change their lives forever. I loved reading this book and can’t wait to read more by Ditter Kellen.

A Great Listen

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. Vlad has been around along time and hunting is his only pleasure. Until a trespasser tries to kill a shifter on his property, only he's allowed to do that. The alpha shifter is fatally wounded and Vlad saves her life, and changes his and his people's lives forever. Well written characters with a fast paced and suspenseful plot that not only keeps you listening, but will make you chuckle occasionally. Well worth the listen.

Delicious Hot Vampire Thriller! Loved it!

OMG! The Rise of Vlad is a freakin fangtastic audiobook! It’s the third story in this crazy awesome series and Ditter Kellen really outdid herself on this one! Vlad the oldest and most powerful vampire has spent centuries keeping things in order with the vampires, fighting the shifters and the Seeker Society and he’s grown tired of it all! Vlad's always been alone and never once considered finding a mate and it’s been to many years to even remember when he’s thought about or even had any interest in sex! Oh but when a shifter gets caught in a bear trap on his land he might just have to rethink on that one, especially when he gets a taste of Nita the sexy alpha and starts to actually feel... Oh this series has been a joy to listen to but this is definitely my favorite one! I also thought narrator Sommer Hines did a fantastic job and really brought all these intriguing unique characters to life and had me so enthralled and hanging on to every single word! I love Ditter Kellen’s creative writing style, and I highly recommend this and all of her books and audiobooks!
