In one instant, everything Renee Hardin knew was destroyed. Vampires were real, and now she had the bloodlust and fangs to prove it. Thrown into a new world, the only friend she has is Eli, a man who could’ve been drawn from her worst fears… or her darkest dreams. Mysterious and ancient, Eli is the most powerful of vampires and the most determined to rid the world of the predators that feast upon the innocent. He has spent thousands of years alone, wanting nothing, needing no one. But when a beautiful woman’s mortal life is stolen before his eyes by the very Outcasts he hunts, Eli has no choice but to pose as her Sire and take her in and try to prevent their evil from poisoning her soul. Sexual attraction between Sire and fledgling is utterly forbidden, yet every moment with Renee makes him all the more aware that he is not her Sire. Fearless, sassy, and vibrantly alive, she awakens feelings he thought long dead and buried. But how can he risk loving her when it would mean revealing the sins that caused the gods to turn their backs on him for eternity?
This was a new author for me. I am constantly looking for new authors to enjoy. Even though this is the second book in a series, I had no problem understanding everything and everyone involved in the book. The author did a wonderful job of writing this book to serve as a stand alone book as well.
When Renee is turned by an Outcast vampire, Guardian Eli takes her under his wing. Renee was a spit fire and was very strong willed. Eli was patient and strong as well. While he is not her true sire, he lies and tells her that he is so she has a place in the vampire world. While sire’s and fledglings are not suppose to be romantically involved, you can see the spark of attraction from the instant they start talking to each other. The romance was steamy, the writing was great, and I definitely will be reading the rest in this series.
Overall a great book to read if you love the paranormal and steamy love scenes. A great series that has lots of potential!
