Publisher's Summary

With two kids, an amazing husband, and an incredible family, Emma's life was everything she’d ever hoped it would be. But there was a downside to having everything you’ve ever wanted, a downside that Teren and Emma couldn’t possibly have been prepared for. When you have everything you want…then you also have everything to lose.

Danger lurking around the corner

They were vampires, while some were bad and twisted, as any human could be, some were good.
I know it’s unfathomable to consider a human marrying a vampire, yet that’s the way Ms. Stephens chose to approach this series. I considered this much like I would at accepting gays, lesbians, trans, and any other type of relationship in the human world. There are lovers and haters no matter what you are. Just insert a race, religion, or a sexual orientation and you can find any number of groups to find cause for why they disprove.
‘Til Death is a continuation of that loving feeling between Teren and Emma. They continue to protect there family at any cost against those that are haters.

Narrator:
Piper Goodeve is incredible with the way she transitions between characters. I don’t know how she manages to keep track of each voice and tone for each character she portrays, but it’s seamless. I’m impressed with her narration skills to voice all of these characters with different sounds, tones, and timbers. Who needs multiple narrators when Piper can voice a variety of characters? Piper has talent.
The sound quality was good with no outside disturbances. The narration was spoken word perfectly. I followed along with my ebook and she read each word as it was written.

Overall:
The recap which begins Til’ Death is a nice way to get caught up to all that had transpired in the two prior books.
While I appreciated the descriptive words used I was not as impressed with the storyline. It seemed unoriginal after having read two prior books. A pattern was formed with each story containing a dangerous threat to the lifestyle of these emotional vampires.

I did enjoy the more human aspect of this story. It was comforting the way Teren and Ella raised the twins in a humanistic fashion. They hardly behaved as vampires.
I did have a few concerns regarding those vampiristic traits. At one point both Teren and Emma openly cried in front of Tracy and Christian unconcerned that they cried tears of blood. Another concern was when Teren and Emma closed there bedroom door at night having not reopened it by morning to find there daughter in bed with them. Not too far back Teren mentioned a need to lock the door for privacy and if that were the case then the daughter wouldn’t have been able to get inside the room. My final issue was with Gabriel. It seemed unlikely that he would keep a poisonous vile in his lab that was capable of harming vampires instead of destroying it. It served no purpose to keep those viles.

‘Til Death didn’t end on a cliffhanger but there were loose ends that allowed for Ms. Stephens to continue the series.

I'll Remember This Story Til Death

After listening to the first two books, I knew I'd love this final audiobook in the series. The author and the narrator are both favorites of mine. And this last part of the story was just as good as the first two.

A wonderful conclusion to Emma & Teren's chapter

What did you love best about Til Death?

Everything! Well, to be more specific I loved the balance between the mythology, romance, sexy times and drama that made up Emma and Teren's new reality post babies.

What other book might you compare Til Death to and why?

I'd compare Til Death to Twilight because one) Twilight is my top favorite vampire romance series ever, and two) because SC Stephens succeeded as Stephenie Meyer did. Both created their super unique vampire universe and then added in cool realistic touches, humor and delightful sexy times. I wanted to be part of the family in each series and I loved feeling that way.

What does Piper Goodeve bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narrator Piper Goodeve nailed it. She added all the right vocal tones to highlight the emotional moods and she gave each character a very distinct vocal personality. She is simply one of the best narrators in the business, and I'd listen to any book narrated by her in the future without hesitation.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My initial reaction upon starting Til Death was, man, I'd missed this vampire universe. I laughed many times throughout the novel. I was tense when things got crazy and I was happily relieved when their drama came to a satisfying end. I will definitely read Conversion: The Next Generation if SC Stephens is indeed able to write the spin-off series.

Any additional comments?

II really loved the additional couple pairings in the series: Hot Ben and Tracy, Gabriel and Helena, and 2 other couples whose names I won't identify since that would be too spoilery. I'll be curious to find out more about their HEAs in the spin-off series.

Good book

It was well written and sweet. It is a good end to the series. Wasn't trashy or over the top. The narrator is a great reader.

Good story; bad editing

Most of the content could've been excluded. I started listening at 1.25 speed then went to 1.5 speed. That helped. The author over explains and has too much of Emma's thoughts which are repetitive. For the entire series I liked the story but it gets lost in fluff and there's hours between interesting events.

Ran Out of Steam!

Would you try another book from S. C. Stephens and/or Piper Goodeve?

Not after this last one.

Would you ever listen to anything by S. C. Stephens again?

Possibly

What aspect of Piper Goodeve’s performance would you have changed?

Reading was a bit stilted.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Til Death?

Most of the cute kiddy bits and a lot of the wining.

Any additional comments?

Needed to move much more swiftly and didn't keep the reader's interest. The author seemed to lose the plot.
