Britt is back in this story, but he isn’t what he once was. Something happened to him, and they still haven’t figured out what exactly it was. So since Britt isn’t sure what his limits are or what exactly he is able to control, this means he won’t touch Jess. He’s so afraid that he may accidently kill her, but Jess feels differently. The sexual tension between these two while Britt struggles with what he’s become is off the charts!
While Britt tries to find out exactly what he is, he’s sent on a wild goose chase. He’s found that there is another like him, but with all the cryptic messages he’s been receiving, he’s scared of what he’s really become. Britt decides to disregard the warnings and goes to the only other person who may understand what he’s going through, oh how does he regret that decision later.
While Britt is trying to find out about what’s happened to him, Jess is trying to find out how her brother Regent returns, but he’s years younger than when he left. What happened to him while he was gone? What does the Vatican expect of him? And why are they bringing an out of control vampire to his church, and wanting everything kept secret? What happens with Britt once he finds out what he’s become, not only that, what happens with his relationship with Jess?
So many questions, but the only way to find the answers is to read this book! Seriously you NEED to read this book! It’s best to read the books in order so that you have a better understanding of the story and the characters, but I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Regent has disappeared. Britt is back, but what is he?? He won’t touch Jess, he doesn’t want to hurt her and he knows he could very well accidently kill her. This frustrates the hell out of Jess. So she teases him to get him to react to her. He does, but then pulls away. This puts doubts in Jess’s mind about Britt’s feeling for her.
So while trying to figure out what he is, Britt pulls away from Jess. He goes hunting to find out answers at the monastery where he recuperated from his death, in the last book. He finds out that there is another like him, so he finds this man who is pretending to be an evangelist, and claims he can cure all vampires. He says he can make them human. He gets in trouble when some very, very old vampires want to walk in the sun. He exhausts himself and his powers trying to cure them and tries to recruit Britt to help him. Britt will do it, but with certain conditions.
In the meantime Regent returns. But it’s a much younger Regent. This man is in his early 40’s. Not 73 like he should be. With him comes Vatican guards and a Vatican official with a vampire that is growing out of control. The Vatican wants Regent to heal him like he did his sister.
This just has so much suspense and it’s just so thrilling! I couldn’t wait to find out what was going on. But then so sad when I got to the end and it was over.
I was gifted a copy of this book by NetGalley for an honest review.
Britt’s new powers to destroy vampires has him extremely on edge. He needs to understand how this power came to be. Why he can only vaguely remember a monk chanting over him. And why it seems he’s not the only one in the city with a major new found power. But most of all is his fear that he will harm Jess in the midsts of a sexual moment with only his mind. Because of that fear he’s keeping away from Jess – and neither one of them is happy about that especially Jess.
Father Regent has returned after being summoned to the Vatican a changed man. No, really a physically changed man. He seems to have dropped thirty years since that visit. And he also has no real good memory of how that was accomplished. At first Jess and Britt are suspicious of the man who says he’s Regent but are eventually convinced. Now their concerns are even higher when Regent bars them from his church for the foreseeable future. Seems he’s getting visitors and they only want him in residence.
There’s a new con man in town. Malcolm Fisk claims to be an evangelist but what he is doing is far from spreading the Good Word. He is convincing vampires that he can allow them to walk in the day – for a price of course. Smoke and mirrors. He has the same powers as Britt and is determined to bring Jess’s lover over to his way of thinking.
The Guest who is staying in Jess’ vault at the rectory is by far the most dangerous thing Jess has ever encountered. And when Regent’s story and Britt’s story slowly meld together the results are unexpected and explosive.
I would highly recommend this latest edition of the Jess Vandermire, Vampire Hunter series to anyone who enjoys good, detailed paranormal series and almost non-stop action.
