From Kirkus Reviews
In the world of Evanna Amaranthine, vampires are guardians who protect humanity from itself. These vamps feed only on society's dregs, but that moral bent isn't enough to stop the hatred of a single line of determined vampire killers. One born each generation, the latest is more fanatical than his predecessors, and Evanna's mission is to kill him. Not quite a human, but not something Evanna's ever experienced either, vampire-assassin Rian Delmar lacks any redeeming qualities. To get close enough to kill him, Evanna must masquerade as human, while living with fellow vamp Zak. It's Zak who's the catalyst here; he introduces Evanna to the human world, which includes a persistent human painter named Messiah. Zak's other purpose--and Messiah's--is to teach Evanna how to open herself up to human emotions--and with them, the memories of her past human life. The novel doesn't fully explore Evanna's self-discoveries, but it opens the door for future installments. The main characters are generally rich, and Evanna's process of mastering the nuances of human life adds interest and counters the occasional bouts of predictability."
