My review is based on the audiobook. I did not read book one and I wish I had because this story was sooooo good! I was sucked in from the start and had a hard time putting this story down because I wanted to know what would happen next. The narrator did a wonderful job with distinguishable character voices and on point pacing. This is a must read for any vampire fan and I promise you wont see the end coming!! I cant wait to see where Alexis journey goes next but in the mean time I am going back and reading Book 1!
