Sherrilyn Kenyon- Retribution AUDIO BOOK

Harm no human…
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief—Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.

A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster…

Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.

Spectacular, Marvelous, Sensational those are just three words I can use to describe this audio book read by Holter Graham. I first read the ebook version and then listened to the audio book and let me tell you I picked up on things I had missed when I read it. This was my first audio book to listen to and I loved it. Mr. Graham's voice was perfect for this rugged story with its sexy cowboy lead Dark Hunter. I was not sure what to expect when I first popped the #1 cd into my car cd player but I was not disappointed. He captured the characters and set the scenes so you felt like you were there. When I read the story I was a little confused over some of the characters but after hearing them and their stories I get it now. I actually cried at the end with the bonus scene, the feelings he portrayed made you feel the joy and love and even excitement of the moment in the story.
Jess "Sundown" Brady is in Las Vegas to catch the person or persons killing off other Dark Hunters. Abigail is a human who is out for blood, Dark Hunter blood but mainly Jess Brady's blood. She thinks he is the one that killed her parents years ago and has set her goal in life to find him and to gut him. When the tables are turned and she is captured by Sundown she finds out that not all the things she was told and believed in her life were true. When she opens her heart and mind she sees him for the man he truly is. 
I loved how my favorite characters from past books made appearances in this book, Talon & Zarek stop by to help Sundown out and man oh man Sasha was in this book- I laughed out loud while reading the ebook but to hear him in the audio book was even better- his one liners are the best!!
My Rating for the Audio book & to Holter Graham= 4.5
