THE COURT OF SHADOWS Vampyria Saga, Book 1

by | Read by Carlotta Brentan

Fantasy • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

In an alternate universe, King Louis XVI has become the first vampire and has now ruled for three centuries. Carlotta Brentan gives a spirited narration of this novel featuring Jeanne, a young commoner who is masquerading as an aristocrat to seek vengeance for the deaths of her family members. Commoners have no rights; they're just a source of blood for the vampires. Aristocrats dominate the decadent Court, hoping to be allowed to transmute and live forever as vampires. Brentan portrays Jeanne as initially naïve but passionate and determined. The precariousness of her situation permeates Brentan's performance as Jeanne transforms from a frightened and subservient girl to a haughty, ruthless aristocrat. Brentan makes the moments when Jeanne's secret is almost exposed especially exciting. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
