Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I mentioned in the review of the last book how this series was one of the first fantasy reads for me, and I'd not really got “with it” with book one, but then read the fourth and loved it – except for that dammed cliff-hanger. I HATE those..but finally we've the next book and we dive straight in with Shiarra being a captive in Max' home.
I like Shiarra, and that's important to me to like the main characters. Its mostly her in this book, trying to escape Max and get back to Royce. She's pretty inventive and has several attempts which annoy and frustrate Max intensely. He's hoping to bring her to his side, but vastly underestimates her determination.
Its a riveting read, full of Others, action, battles and slayings. Shiarra meets some new Others who are Max' captives, and as usual promises to help them too even when she doesn't know if she can trust them. That's here nature, if she sees an injustice she has to step in – its why Royce loves her and she brings a bit of morality to his life. Others live such long lives that its a common thread through the genre that they lose their sense of morality over time, and view humans and anyone different to themselves as unimportant. I love Nalini Singh Angel series, and that's one of the things Raphael says about Elena, he's very, very old and she brings back some of his sense of morality – I think he says something like “you make me a little more mortal” though he's talking about physically as well as morally. Royce looks at things differently since he met Shiarra too.
I was interested in meeting the new Others, and finding out what they could do. Like Shiarra was feeling I was aware that there's that sense of how far can they be trusted, will they really help when push comes to shove, or will they just take the best option for themselves and double deal her? There's lots of surprise for and about Shiarra in this book. I was sad we didn't see more of Royce – he's such a great lead, and hopefully the next book might feature him more though we did get a hot and sexy up-close interlude at the end :-)
Overall a great read, one for keepers, ties up last book neatly and no damn cliffhangers!
Stars: Five, great read, full of surprises and one to keep and a series that I’d happily re read.

Shiarra wakes up to find herself held captive by Max one if the cruelest vampires she has ever had the misfortune to meet. His liking for slaves and natural cruelty sets Max apart from others of his kind and he truly is a monster. Shiarra needs to escape but her captor is determined to use her to take over even more territory. Separated from the one vampire that she does trust Royce, Shiarra needs to keep her wits sbout her but her latent bloodlust is fast becoming a problem . Getting herself free is her goal but she's not going to leave the other slaves behind. Shiarra may be clinging on to her humanity by a thread but this girl will escape or die trying!
This series is pure urban fantasy , it's dark, full of exciting creatures and just pulls the reader in. Although there is a romantic element to it I thought that Royce was a little underused in this instalment and I didn't quite buy into their relationship. That being said our heroine keeps her cards pretty close to her chest and as usual needs bailing out but she's no slouch! Shiarra keeps going no matter what and defeat doesn't ever seem to be a part of her repertoire . No matter how much she suffers she's always true to herself. Perhaps that's why fans love this series? A selfless heroine who will do everything in her power to save others no matter what the cost to herself. She's definitely the kick ass sort and I adore the humour that runs through this book, although stories in first person don't appeal to all readers. It's not my favourite in this series as I wanted more Royce but supporting characters got to step up with both Gideon and Arnold contributing to the action . My favourite character though was definitely Soo-Jin and I sincerely hope we see more of her.
So it's not exactly a cliffhanger ending but there are still questions to be answered . I guess I just expected more but one thing is certain this book will please fans of the series.
