Narrator: Hillary Huber
Published by Tantor Audio on October 14, 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Length: 4 hours, 38 minutes
Savannah Dupree is a freshman studying at Boston University on a full scholarship, and she possesses something even more remarkable--with a simple touch, she can see an object's past. When her studies bring her into contact with a centuries-old English sword and the terrible secret hidden within the blade's history.
In all his three hundred years of living as one of the Breed, vampire warrior Gideon never dreamed he'd see the blade again that ended his young brothers' lives ages ago in London. There's one certain way to prove Gideon's suspicion, but it will mean using Savannah to help uncover the truth. With danger closing in from all sides, the passion that ignites between Gideon and Savannah will tempt them to risk their hearts and lives for a love that might just last an eternity...
When the series was first introduced, Savannah and Gideon were already together and not much has ever been given about their histories. I was excited when I learned of this series prequel and the story doesn’t disappoint.
It wouldn’t be a Midnight Breed story without mystery, intrigue and excitement to accompany Savannah and Gideon’s romance. The mystery didn’t seem tough to solve but there was an interesting twist at the end. And, who knew there was more than a fashion statement to Gideon’s shades? Lastly, Breed warriors had a bit of a different lifestyle and Lucan Thorne before Gabrielle…not so pleasant.
The narration was excellent! Huber gave distinctive voice to each character and I loved Gideon’s.
It’s a short story with quite a bit packed in. I’m glad to finally get the back stories for two of the originals in this series.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
