Publisher's Summary

Being turned isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Narah's a vampire, yet not. Because of a twist of fate and circumstance, Narah finds she's tied to both Aeslin and Matthews.

She's now wanted as a deserter from sentencing by the very people she fought beside. And Magistrate Oren still wants his final lash - at any cost.

From opposing forces, Murphy and Marc find a common goal in helping Narah return to her former life. However, Aeslin and Matthews have other plans, ones that involve her soul - and her heart.

When everyone is taken from Narah, and a sadist holds the reins of her sanity, can the males fulfill their promise to protect her, or will Narah be left to fight this battle alone?

has promise, but didn't quite deliver

*** This Review is for Books 1 - 6 as they make up one story ***

Would I listen to it again: maybe
Did the story keep me engaged: not really
Was I invested in the characters: a little

Story comment: I'm not really sure what to say about this book ... and despite it being a "set", i'm calling it a book because you need all 6 to get a complete story.

It started out promising: Narah, an enforcer who tracks down the worst of the worst of criminals, has trouble coming at her on multiple fronts ...
• a sadistic magistrate wants to make an example of her for exceeding the number of "authorised kills" she has made in the name of doing her job;
• Matthews, a Hunter, is a member of a society out to eliminate supernaturals, by sterilising women who have the potential to be vampire mates and can produce vampire children is after her; and
• Aeslin, a member of an elite vampire squad tasked with turning woman into vampires for the benefit of their dwindling numbers, discovers Narah is the other half of his soul and wants her for himself.

When the main players and plot had been established I was intrigued, but it just didn't have the pace or depth I was expecting. I think this book would suit someone new to the genre, but as someone in their 40's who has been a paranormal fan for decades, this one just fell short of the mark for me.

I'm not sure the narrator was the best choice for this series. She has good inflections and intonations and has tried to give each character their own voice, but the voices were inconsistent, didn't particularly suit the characters personality and more than once I lost track of which character was speaking.
