When the border between Floriana and the United States is opened after 80 years, Nathan and Caroline visit as official tourists and unofficial spies. Escorted around picturesque turn-of-the-century New Orleans, they quickly realize they are being prevented from seeing the real city - and evidence of an incipient revolution.
After two assassination attempts, Nathan begins to question his loyalty to a king who may have deliberately placed them in harm's way. The pair are determined to find out who is trying to kill them and why.
A hurricane interrupts their search, and Nathan believes Caroline has drowned in the raging waters. Grief-stricken, he joins the revolution where he must face his deepest fears. Meanwhile, Caroline refuses to believe her rescuers when they tell her Nathan fell in the battle of New Orleans. Penniless and alone, she falls desperately ill.
For once, Nathan and Caroline's paranormal abilities fail to help. Will their love for each other be enough to reunite them?

Both the story and narration are a leap forward
*I did not pay for this audiobook* I really liked how much of a step forward the book was compared to the former. The gap of differance between the two is pretty large. While the books writing style and what not remains the same a key differance is how much time has passed between the two books. We don't hear about the world of politics in Washington as I expected and was pleasantly suprised to be taken along on a late honeymoon and holiday.
I remain a large fan of the shifters in general. Be them wolves or kitties, compared to the former book the prevolence is much smaller in this book which is a shame but refreshing when they did crop up form time to time.
As someone who is dyslexic the ability to have this book as an audiobook is a big plus and wouldn't be possible without narrators willing to read/record. Ashley Holt's narration has improved along with the books leap forward in time. Complaints about a sing-song voice from the former book have been resolved with a much more pleasant normal-sounding narration voice. I only wish the sing-song style had remained for some of the voice acting as well as a larger range of voice acting for each distinct character as it can be confusing to tell who is speaking once or twice. There are some background noise that seems to be Ashley readjusting in a chair during the recording, nothing overly prevasive but could have probably been edited out or re-recorded.
"What are you doing on holiday?" Is the first thing that jumps to mind (Probably one of the worst movie taglines) but reading the book there where several points where like a movie-go'er watching a horror I wanted to just shake mostly everyone and demand to know "What the hell are you doing". If your not okay with an audiobook being a non-interactive experiance this book will be a rough ride.
This audiobook was supplied to me by the narrator Ashley Holt for the purpose of an unbias review and I have tried to remain as unbais as possible. If you liked the first book or would have liked the first book had you read it this audiobook is a nice enough experiance. While you could probably read this book without reading the first and understand most of it, read or listen to the first book... first. Had I paid for this book I wouldn't feel disapointed or unhappy with my purchase.
