Inhaltsangabe

Kendal Richoux's life began during the reign of Egypt's only female pharaoh. After accepting the opportunity to drink the elixir of the sun, Kendal becomes immortal and the Genesis Clan's slayer. History has taught her the dangers of getting too close to anyone who hasn't harnessed the power of time. 

After many years, she returns to New Orleans to finish a job she's trained for all her life. It's time for her to face her brother, Henri, and it will have dire consequences to mankind if she fails. 

Piper Marmande believes Kendal has come to take over the company her family has built over generations. As Kendal prepares for the most important battle of her long life, Piper does her best to uncover every one of Kendal's secrets, making herself a distraction Kendal can't afford as she hunts Henri and Ora, the vampire who seduced him to a life of darkness.

It's a slog

Boring, annoying and makes little sense, that would be my summary of the 1st half, since I stopped listening after that. The characters are very unlikeable, especially the protagonist.
All the flash backs are annoying since they aren't worked into the story in a way that doesn't break the flow of the main story, every time one comes up it destroys the pacing.
Piper could never be a good business woman the way she is portrayed in the book.
Kendal does nothing against her brother for the 1st half of the book, but she has time to make business deals and soak in melancholy.
The reason why they didn't act faster against Kendals brother isn't explained in the 1st half of the book even though the book mentions it quite a few times, wich is a cheap way for a writer to strong arm the reader to read more.

I'm really quite disappointed since the short plot description on the shop page was a more fulfilling read than what I listened to for 5 hours after buying the audiobook.
I think the way the story was written does translate very badly to an audiobook, if I had read the book, I probably would've been able to finish the story instead of getting too annoyed to go on after the 1st half of the story.
