Audiobook Review: Tall, Dark & Heartless (Pyte/Sentinel, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tall, Dark & Heartless by R.L. Mathewson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

He should have left her and never looked back… That’s not how things played out for Caine, a nearly one thousand year old Pyte, who should have known better. Instead of walking away years ago, he has been watching over the only human who has touched his heart. He stays to protect her, at least that is what he tells himself. When trouble finds her, he knows that he should just cut his losses and walk away, but there is no fighting the hold the child, who has become a woman, has on him. Now they are both paying the price.

Danni knows that she isn’t technically a Sentinel and is putting her life in danger every time she goes out on patrol. She isn’t worried, she has a job to do. It is the only thing that matters to her anymore and she isn’t going to let it go without a fight. Unfortunately for her, she didn’t foresee her ex-boyfriend selling her out to a Master, being captured, getting locked up and stuck in a room with the cranky Pyte. The same Pyte that broke her heart years ago and won’t stop glaring at her – as if their little predicament is all her fault.

The heroine: Danni – She is the human daughter of two sentinels and she works for the sentinels protecting humans from supernatural creatures who don’t follow the rules. When she was a girl, her parents often left her alone at the compound while they were out patrolling and on jobs.

The Hero(es): Caine – He is a Pyte and over a thousand years old. After being tortured by an entire town of humans when he was first turned. He had run wild all over the world and ended up being held by the Sentinels. While trying to escape he came across a lonely little girl and ended up befriending her.

The Story: Caine was always there for Danni as a child until she hit womanhood. At that point he stopped talking to her and left her to her own devices. They both worked for the sentinels but never spoke to each other.

A master vampire kidnaps both Caine and Danni with the help of Danni’s ex boyfriend Greg who wants to be turned into a vampire. They want Caine to either turn Danni into a Pyte that can be used to create an army of super strong vampire’s or impregnate her to give them a Pyte offspring that they can mold to their uses.

The story in this book was pretty good and funny in parts, even a bit silly in certain parts. We also got more of the story of the Williams clan, Ephraim, Madison, Chris, Isabelle, Joshua and more. Like the previous few books, this one has great supporting characters. I loved it when Danni’s ex Greg got what was coming to him more than once.

Again this book had an awesome story and terrific supporting characters and I can’t wait to read more of this series. Unfortunately I don’t have any more of the audiobooks and can’t afford more for a while so it will be a bit before I can continue but I definitely will as soon as I can.

Also, I liked the narrator much better in this one, though the young kids voice she used for Chris was still disturbing to me. Though since he wasn’t the main Hero in this book, I could overlook it easily enough. I also realize how hard it must be to come up with different voices for each character when there are so many supporting characters. So I give her props for that.
