Publisher's Summary

She will teach them the meaning of fear - it will be the last thing they learn.

Michiko Nakatomi, an ancient vampire and leader of the Dark Council, is missing. After giving up control of the blood blades - weapons designed to destroy supernaturals - the Dark Council challenged Michiko’s leadership…and her right to exist. Rising tensions within the alliance of vampires, mages, and weres are threatening to tear the Dark Council apart. Some within the Council feel it’s time for supernaturals to step out of the shadows and take what’s rightfully theirs, by invoking the Blood Protocol - an ancient ritual created to eliminate mankind. Michiko disagrees…violently.

Michiko must now face overwhelming odds, bitter betrayals, and unrelenting assassins to prevent the Dark Council from plunging the world into another Supernatural War - one that could destroy them all.

Excellent addition to the M & S Universe

Bravo for using the same narrator for this book as the regular series even though the story was told from a female perspective! Nothing irritates me more than when a spin off has a new voice and the main character sounds nothing like they did in the original series. There is so much to be said for consistency!

As for the book itself, I think it's the best one so far. It was great to get to know the Michiko character and learn her story. The same for some of the other characters that appeared more prominently in this series than M & S. I hope there will be more books in this spin off series.

To audible - let's get on getting the rest of the M & S books recorded!

Amazing Narration

The rule of the Blood Council books let's us gain more insight into Michiko Nakatomi.

Kevin T Collins narration proceeds to knock the story telling right out the park. Kevin, who has narrated almost all of the M&S Universe books demonstrate here just how talented he is. Rule of the Blood Council is told first POV limited from Michiko's POV. At no point do you think Simon Strong is the storyteller: this narration is in Michiko's voice and it's amazing.

As listeners we are privileged to have Kevin voice these books. He adds even more depth and more nuance to an already nuance tale.

Character voices are easily distinguished. This Audible is a solid 6 stars.
