Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order—an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires—Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan’s hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire—a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan’s elusive quarry.
Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing—until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.
I’ll have you know, this book did serious damage to my sleep cycle. I was forced to live half a life of a vampire and half of regular homo sapiens, and full insomnia.
As per usual when trying to write a review for a book I so enjoyed, this is going to be a struggle for sure, considering I’ve been waiting to read it for a long long while.
I made a wise choice before starting this and went back a while, mostly to remind me of the new characters that joined the ranks of the Order after the twenty year time leap into the future in the previous book. So far, these men and women had to fight other Breed members and then their otherworldly fathers, and now, with enough time having passed for new threats to form and flourish, they face, yet again, a potential war with an enemy that can very well cause the end of their world and peace.
I don’t know if you’ve read the previous books of this series-if you haven’t, I highly recommend that you do, for this series was an obsessively pleasant and sexy read- but if you have, then you’re well aware that the human women who can bear Breed children and live a long life with their mates had their own genetic secrets that were slowly being revealed. Now this plot is thickening and many more mysteries and action await us from the looks of it.Read More »
