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–
Wow Wow Wow! That’s all I can say about this story! It’s dark. It’s intense. It’s full of paranormal yumminess! Jon is a tortured soul. He hates hybrids and is part of a force that hunts them down and kills them. But, when Lawan brings out his dark side, Jon doesn’t know whether to hate her or himself.
I really, really enjoyed this story. There is nothing about this entire story that is bad. From the character development to the world building to the action and adventure, this book is so well done! The connection between Lawan and Jon is so intense it’s hard not to want to want them together. My only complaint about this book is that it ended too soon!
I highly recommend this book, this author, and anything she puts out! Well done!
