Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits-talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot.
The undead are another matter.
Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires. But when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.
The undead senators won't help her for nothing, and Cassie finds herself working with one of their most powerful members, a dangerously seductive master vampire-and the price he demands may be more than Cassie is willing to pay.

Great start to a new series
Audiobook review: An entertaining story that is definitely a start to a new series with plenty of background information to help the storyline progress. I thought the story was very good but man are there a lot of characters introduced early on, so much so that I had to stop & grab a piece of paper and write down names and a few words of what they were & their role. Some of my fellow reviewers compared the story to Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake story...I call BS. I don’t see any similarities other than vampires. Cassie is not a monster hunter nor a necromancer and ghosts are not the same as zombies. Nor does she have the abrasive attitude that Anita does. Great story and I’m looking forward to book 2.
the book itself is very good, but the narrator is almost unbearable. no offense to her. Cynthia has a good voice and great potential, but it needs to be more natural. like not so pronounced. her t's and s's and every other letter in the alphabet are so pronounced that i zone out of the book. if i can't finish the audio book i will read the paper book. i like the story enough to finish it and read the rest most definately, but the narration isn't very good.
Great Story - Horrible Narrator!!!
I enjoyed the story line and will absolutely read the entire series. That said, it will only be in Print! I am always listening to books- driving, at work, shopping, etc, and I have listened to hundreds of them, but I have never wanted to smack a narrator... until this book. She lacks originality with regards to the characters voice's, shows no emotion, and certain parts I had to slow down from 2x speed to 1x because of her lisp. I am not anti-lisp by any stretch of the imagination, but she picked the wrong profession. Read this to yourself! P.S. She is the reader for Books 1-5. Book 6 is a different reader! Yay!! Happy Reading All!!
