My only complaint is that the whole vampire romance theme has kind of been done to death (even if not quite like this) and for that reason I liked her other book "Toby Streams the Universe" better. However, this was still excellent and well worth the read. I'm looking forward to the next book from this author.
This isn't your typical vampire book either. This story is of a love that transcends generations and a vampire that protects the daughter (and daughters' daughter from generation to generation) of the woman he loved when he was first "turned" years ago while attempting to help a slave escape her master. It has intrigue, drama, a man's demon and a woman's ability to love despite it.
Now doesn't that make you want to delve further into the audio drama? There aren't a lot of sound effects just the steady voice of the author as she shares her work in a way that makes you feel as if you're right there in the room with the characters viewing it from the point of view of either Raine (the female descendant of the slave), or Joshua (the vampire). There are characters you'll love and those you're sure to hate. Truly the makings of a good book!
Despite that bias, I found "Conjuring Raine" to be a gripping book, full of interesting characters, plenty of suspense, humor, romance, the works. It's a wonderful story. I gave it to my son when I was finished (he's eighteen; there's enough adult language in here that I wouldn't give it to a middle-schooler--even though I know that most of them know, and use, more "adult words" than I do), and he loved it as well.
Raine Black has been in love with Joshua since she was five years old, even though she's only seen him for short periods of time since they first met--usually when he arrives to get her out of some kind of trouble. But now she's twenty-three, and it's been five years she's last seen him. When he shows up this time, she isn't in trouble--yet--but Joshua brings it.
And she begins to wonder, for the first time, why he still looks just about her own age--exactly the way he looked back when she was five. . . .
Except, that is, for the black scar on his hand, which now reaches all the way up his arm and is spreading over half his face.
Good book. Read it.
