This one took me a bit to jump in, and get the bearing and surroundings for some reason. I had a cold for a bit, so maybe it was just that.
Marc and Blake are vampires. Marc being the Master and Blake being his Childe. The setting is in the future when Pacts are no longer formed or mean much of anything. (Pacts are where vampires keep humans safe and in exchange they give vampires blood.)(To learn more about Pacts see Kallysten's series titled The Pact) Vampires used to keep humans safe from the demons that roam the earth. There seem to be more and more demons roaming, this is caused by rips in the reality. Marc and Blake are looking for the rip when they come across some human fighters who are in need of assistance. Of course humans nowadays aren't as trusting and fear that these 2 vampires might be working with the demons. so it takes some time before a little bit of trust is formed.
Amongst the group of fighters is Kate, who both Marc and Blake find attractive and desire. Kate is slow to realize it, but she too has an attraction to not just one of them but both of them. Although there is ground work set for more with these 3, there isn't much in this book. (can't wait for the next one and the one after that, as it will be about these three, but back to this one first.) They fight together and the start to trust one another, and slowly build more of a foundation.
The vampires and the humans main goal becomes to find the rip and get it sealed, so they move on to a new town and start once more. Slowly making earth a safe place once again. There is hurt, and some betrayal, and enough lust to make you want more. Once the story gets going, its hard to put down, it just seems to fly by and before you know it its over and your wanting the next book so you can continue on with their journey and see what more is to come.
It was well written. The world is described with enough detail to really come alive for me but not too much to ever get boring. It was fast paced and there was plenty of action yet at the same time there was a lot of character development where you got to know everyone, especially Marc and Blake.
You feel Marc and Blake's love and protectiveness for each other but also frustration, annoyance, disappointment, betrayal, rejection and much more. They and their emotions feel very real. Marc is more mature and responsible than Blake (and is his Sire) but he has made mistakes in the past which have damaged their relationship. Blake has a lot of insecurities when it comes to Marc. He has trouble taking anything seriously and has a lot of growing up to do. Even though they are powerful vampires they have some human flaws which make them real.
There are plenty of other characters in the story too, most human. Both Marc and Blake fall for Rose as she is not just a pretty face but gains their respect for being such a good fighter. She is a strong independent individual and one of the leaders in her squad. This is new for Blake and it causes him to care for a human for the first time. This slowly changes him and makes him see things differently. He becomes a better person for it. For Rose the attraction is mutual and she has trouble coming to terms with being attracted to both of them. You're definitely left with the idea that Rose could be what Blake and Marc need to help bring them together and keep them together healing old wounds and bringing excitement and hope for their future.
Even though it is clear the story will continue it ends at a good point so the story still feels complete in its own right. I would definitely recommend this story.
I found myself intrigued with this book right from the beginning. It starts off with a battle and the action continues throughout. The author has created a post apocalyptic fantasy world with a unique twist and very engaging characters.
The heroes, Marc and Blake, and the heroine, Kate, find themselves fighting on the same side against the demons set on destroying the world. The emotional drama the characters find themselves in draws the reader into the story as Marc and Blake join Kate's military group to try to close the demon rip, and find themselves attracted to Kate. They each try to get her attention as they deal with their own personal issues with each other. Kate is equally attracted to them both, but doesn't know what to think or do about that, besides she is on a mission and doesn't need the complication.
The reader's attention is also captured by the depth the supporting characters add to this drama filled story. The well written battle scenes come to life in this intriguing tale and you can feel the chemistry building between the three main characters. The sex in the story is very hot and leaves the reader wanting more.
The author leaves us with not only a war cliff hanger, but a romantic cliff hanger as well, but she left us a great spot in the story. This was a fantastic story and I will be reading more of the books in this series.
