This story opens with Lucas (the head of the vampires) feeling a bit blah with life, what pulls him out is the discovery that one of his subjects has just fed (to death) on an empath and is now riding a high (reminiscent of 'The World on Blood'). Lucas kills him (to stop the word spreading) after learning that the woman in question had a daughter. That daughter is Valerie. Her father becomes a vampire hunter but Lucas protects her as he has a use for her.

The main body of the book takes place 15 years later when Valerie has grown up enough to be of use to Lucas. He wants to find evidence of the other supernatural race (fey, werewolves, witches are mentioned) despite the fact that the reason there're gone is that he ran a very successful campaign against them centuries before. He thinks this will give him a reason to hold onto life.

This of course throws a cat amongst the pigeons and vampire politics gets brutal. Then there's Jake who was raised with Valerie and who she lusts after (and who feels quite protective towards her as well).

This drew me in. I've come across these themes before but it was well handled and made the reading easy. ( )

Not as good as I hoped". I was disapointed with this novel, I tried to read it, but found myself skimming through pages so I could just get to the end. My biggest problem is that I just didn't like any of the charactors - Valerie was annoying, Lucas was irritating and Jack, irksome. I won't be reading book 2 ( )

No real memory of reading this series, but Amazon & Goodreads say I did. Feel no need to reread it. ( )

3.5/5
Carmel from Rabid Read recommended this series, and I quite enjoyed the first book. It's not overly melodramatic, and the vampires in it are believable. They are bored,capricious and ruthless. The fans of D.B. Reynolds and Laurel K. Hamilton should appreciate it. ( )
