For those who are not familiar with or have ever read vampire romance, you needn't shy away from this work. Not only does author, Dan Shaurette, cater to those who aren't accustomed to the ways and "lifestyles" of these individuals, he does it in an unobvious fashion. His descriptions answered all the questions this newbie reader had and prompted me to want to learn more.
I admit, when I learned this book made vampires its focal point I was a bit leery about the read. I was worried I would find gruesome and gore, but I found quite the contrary. While it was necessary to the plot to add feeding and fight scenes, it was done so with tact and an air of eroticism in most situations.
While in the midst of this story, it is difficult not to feel personally connected to the characters and what their various struggles. I found myself unable to put the book down, as I was eager to learn more about what would happen next and how events would eventually turn out. Shaurette's ability to take you "into the heads" of each character is evident right from the beginning of the book, when one of the main characters, Don, is introduced.
I won't lie; I wish this book were longer. I was able to devour it in three short sittings and now I find myself hungry for more. What will happen to each character? How does everything turn out? Will the new "destinies" the characters found be just that, their true destiny? Only the author knows the answers to these questions and will hopefully answer them with a sequel someday.
