Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.
Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.
After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who’ve wronged her, including every member of Jon’s vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.
As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear–
I did something silly. I read this book out of order. Do yourself a favour, and don’t make that mistake. Read Releasing the Demons first (review to come next month). I suspect that it will assist with the background nuances of the clearly established relationships referenced in this book.
That aside, I found this to be an easy read. The pacing was fast, and that worked perfectly with the storyline. The characters have real substance to them, and although here is a lot going on, each has his or her own very unique voice. And despite the action which is packed into these (virtual) pages, there is a tangible sense of family which pervades the narrative.
An engaging story.
