SUMMARY
Risa will go to any lengths to avenge her mother's murder—even if it means making a pact with the most evil vampire she's ever met. Lethal and powerful, Madeline Hunter is leader of the vampire council and will put her resources behind finding the killer—for a price. The venerable vampire requires the assistance of Risa's psychic powers. Quid pro quo. Someoneor something—is targeting the elders of the local council, cursing the immortal vampires to rapidly age, sink into madness and die. Risa must track down the vengeful being responsible. But Risa's father, a rogue Aedh priest, also enlists her in a dangerous mission. And not even the great Madeline Hunter may be able to protect her from the shadowy forces that desire nothing less than Risa's destruction.

MY REVIEW

A powerful vampire who is very difficult to stand, people in search of the keys who keep appearing from nowhere, friends who could be in a very dangerous situation and some very attractive men who give you chills everywhere... I don't know about you, but those are definitely some reasons why I fall in love with a book!

Speaking of men, I had a crush on Lucian, he's unquestionably handsome and in the previous book he had a charming attitude that in some way reminded me of Quinn, but here I was upset (I admit it, even intrigued) to find him a character so not to be trusted... I'm totally keeping my eyes well open from now on with him... On the contrary, Azriel was charming at the beginning, amazing in the middle and then pure-awesomness in the end! Of course he still has a mystery halo, but let's face it, isn't it one of the main reasons why we girls are so attracted to a how-gorgeous reaper/dark angel? And what if he starts having a flirting attitude? Wouldn't that chemistry with Risa be even more enjoyable to read about? No, it's even more pleasurable than you're thinking, trust me!

I'm so pleased Keri Arthur decided to write this amzing spin-off and I totally can't wait for the third book to arrive with (I hope) more Rohan moments that are something really priceless!

RATING: 4/5
