As a former Hunter bred to be a killing machine in the hell of a madman's lab, Breed vampire Scythe is a dangerous loner whose heart has been steeled by decades of torment and violence. He has no room in his world for love or desire - especially when it comes in the form of a vulnerable yet courageous Breedmate in need of protection. Scythe has loved - and lost - once before and paid a hefty price for the weakness of his emotions. He's not about to put himself in those chains again, no matter how deeply he hungers for lovely Chiara.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not a big fan of Hilary the attempted accents and tone pitching between male/female is annoying I would much prefer to listen to Jim Frangione

Any additional comments?

I love the midnight night breed series and this was as predicted AWSOME
I just wish you would hurry up already with Claimed In Shadows (what is the hold up !!)

When radical terrorists take hostages in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a super soldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better, run faster, disappear when necessary, and hunt the enemy along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that. A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke's different.

Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances? How does this one compare?

lets just face the fact that i could listen to Jim Frangione read the phone book and would be perfectly content! He makes every character come to life, captures the nuances of each individual and holds you spellbound till the end. Highly recommend this series and this exceptional narrator!

What did you like most about Defy the Dawn?

I Loved Absolutely everything about it, Lara Adrian never disappoints with this series, I'm hopelessly addicted lol

How could the performance have been better?

Often times listening to Hillary Huber is a little like listening to nails down a chalk board
but because I love the series so much I'm willing to suffer. perhaps one day the publishers will take pity an employ someone like Jim Frangione for future audio's

Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he's back, but at what cost? Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he's unable to withstand the touch of another...and he's quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride - just not his own.

Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I love Lara's Breed series and devour the books as they come but Hillary Huber has managed to butcher this series with her reading style and I found myself white knuckling through half of the first chapter before turning it off !! really bad choice of narrator I wont be buying any more unless of course the publishers get a clue and re-do this series using the GOD of narrating Jim Frangione (wink wink)
