Audiobook Review On Night's Honor, (Elder Races #7)

Rated it

 On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she’s vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That’s why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.

The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can’t ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier’s world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers—both to her life and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past….

Tess Graham is a computer whiz/expert, number crunchin, multi-lingual genius who works for a Djinn in a Vegas Casino. Tess knows things, things that are dangerous for her health if her Djinn boss Malface, were ever to find out. That day has come. Tess stuck her nose in someone elses business and really pissed of Malface, now she's on the run. Xavier del Toro, a high ranking vampire is looking for a new attendant, and according to vampire law, you fuck with a vampires attendant, you fuck with said vampire. Seeing this as her only way to survive Malface's wrath, Tess desperately seeks any vampires employment during the open audition. With a give no fucks attitude, and I'm smarter than everyone in this room statement, she is quickly snatched up by Xavier. Will Xavier regret his choice and end up killing her himself, or will Tess win him over with her fucked up argumentative charm?

My intro for this book was totally called for. Tess's character in this story is quite uncalled for. I'm not sure how else to put it. She is the one seeking help, for a wrong she tried to right. She is the one that is a mere human, no powers, no magic, no immortality. And yet she goes to Xavier's estate with an attitude. She has a superiority complex about her, arguing with everyone about everything, kinda like I did when I was a teenager, lol.. I know everything and you're stupid, right! Despite this personality conflict I have with her, I like her. She is smart, she backs up what she dishes out, and she is a quick thinker. Tess means well, she does have a heart, and solid distinction with what's right and wrong. Although the main reason Tess ends up working for Xavier is because of the story line about Malface, the real story is a love story, Xavier and Tess's love story. During the course of six weeks, both Xavier and Tess get to know each other, and Xavier helps Tess conquer her fears. Each day that goes by, each lesson learned, each conversation reveals something personal and brings them closer to each other. When the time comes for Tess to shit or get off the pot, a plan is formed and the action portion of the book begins!

The majority of the story takes place at Xavier's estate with his human attendants while Tess trains. We do have some short appearances by the fae, and other vampires, but the story is about Tess whom is human. I realize this series is about The Elder Races, which are groups of immortal, magical beings so therefore this particular book may seem slow, or even boring to some, but I loved it! Their was nothing boring or slow about the story for me, and I totally heart Tess and Xavier. I think their story and how they fell in love felt natural, honest, even sweet at times. For any true romance junkie, you too will love this story! Happy reading my romantic friends ;)

Narrator Review

Sophie Eastlake, my girl! I only have wonderful things to say about Sophie and her God given talent! Sophie narrates for several other books that I have had the pleasure of listening to, as well as the Elder Races Series, and I still love, love, love her! She delivers quality, in both her performance and recording. You will not regret any audiobook you get with Sophie as the narrator.  I whole heartedly give 5 Fangs to Sophie.
