My Review
This book starts off quite a while after the ending of Love and Blood.  Our main character has pretty much become a completely different person and has given herself over to Ronan in practically every way that she possibly can.

There is a lot more to this story than in the previous books, which I liked.  The world is getting larger and we're learning more of the inner workings of the vampires.  I do still have a problem with the transitions, however.  It just seem too jumpy and sporadic.  In my opinion, new characters aren't introduced very subtly.  All of a sudden they're there when they didn't exist at first and have never been mentioned previously.

There was a little surprise at the end, which I did not see coming.  It makes me very curious as to what will happen next.

Character: Jen and Rider.
Rating: 3 Stars.
