Raphael and Cyn are back with a vengeance. The anchoring character in this fabulous ongoing series wherein he has built a North American Vampire Alliance to withstand any threat, Raphael prepares to enter into the lion's den against the old guard vamps from Europe. These challengers are vamps who were already old when he was newly made centuries ago, and there are two main things he can count on now as he plans to halt their attempts to relieve him of his Territory: one is that now, as then, they underestimate his true power. And two: their arrogant attitude towards humans has all but discounted Cyn as a factor in their intended coup.
It was a pleasure to sit back and watch Cyn go to extremes to save Raphael when he is overtaken by unknown and unexpected methods. Suffice it to say, she dug deep for her inner Tarantino and brought him to bear most effectively. There are few heroines in romantic fiction who kick a$$ as well as she; most certainly she has taken more names by this book's end than all comparable a$$-kickers. Most of it was sheer mind-power and meticulous planning, though her vampire penetrating rounds did not hurt. Well, not for more than a minute, anyway...
There was ample opportunity to delve into the hearts and minds and unexpected depth of many favourite long term characters as well, like security chiefs Juro and Ken, both of whom are so much more than mere defensive-tackles. Elke was a delight, and she probably has the best one-liners in the book, not to mention a hunky human cop-with-benefits hot on her six. His irreverence rivals that of Lucas, and he's as entertaining as he is helpful to the vamp cause. I sense another future story there, and oh wouldn't another female vampire Lord be awesome?? Cyn's former bed-buddy Nick makes a brief but pivotal appearance and leaves plenty of room for an important if not contentious role on Raphael's team.
In the end, Raphael dispatches his enemies by the hundreds with chilling efficiency that, frankly, is totally hot...lets just put that out there, okay. But the threat is far from dispelled and there are sure to be more challenges to The North American Alliance on the horizon.
At least, I hope so, because this terrific series has just taken a turn that is new, suspenseful, and promises to be even more engrossing than events to date. This new direction is enticingly gritty along the lines of Book 2 "Jabril" and I love seeing these most unapologetic vampires in full vamp mode. Bring on more grit, I say...
