So I first have to say that I really liked this book - I really really liked the paranormal elements, overall it was really interesting and entertaining. There were some really action packed scenes. I liked the characters and the storyline and did enjoy it overall. However, there were a LOT of mistakes, and I'm not usually one who is turned off by bad editing, but this had A LOT of mistakes. missing words, wrong words, awkwardly worded sentences, I found myself wondering more than once if it had been translated from another language or if the author is not a native English speaker. (I still don't know if either of those things are the case) It happened enough that it took me out of the story - and this is the kind of story you need to get lost in, to just let the world wrap you up so you can settle in and enjoy. Many times I had to re-read a passage to figure out what was being said. A few times I wasn't sure if the word being used was a made up word that was part of the world building, or if it was something misspelled or just being used in the wrong context. So that did detract a bit from my enjoyment, but having said all of that, I really really enjoyed this book overall. Its totally worth reading, and I do look forward to the next in the series and I will definitely read it. To those of you who wonder, this one did not end on a cliffhanger, the story is complete.

I am in love with this story. It is not your typical m/m storyline. Angel is not in love with his brothers best friend nor is he not sure he is gay nor is he in hiding. Angel is simply a necromancer who is being hunted for defending himself and his family from an angry mob of vampires. He is very self aware and is sarcastic and funny in equal measures. His budding relationship with an Elder vampire is warm and loving and humorous. I love all the characters in this book and cannot wait for the next one. Very well written and it left me eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the lives of all the characters. A definite winner.

This book is not what I would usually read, but having read this author before I gave it a go and was I glad I did.
This story of a young man who has his entire family killed in front of him except for his brother and then in turn has to kill is gripping in how you see him deal with his world of magic and supernatural beings. How you see that it has touched every part of his life, but not necessarily all in a bad way… or maybe it is???
A very well written story of a world that has plot twists and turns and keeps you on the edge of your seat! A story of love and family and trust and betrayal. Who could ask for more? This book has it all!
I would definitely recommend this book and this author. I know that SJ Himes is now a one click for me, I don’t even have to think about it!

Even if you're not a fantasy reader this story has twists and turns, love and romance, and a world that becomes yours as you read the story! The romance between Angel and Simeon, necromancer and vampire, is hot and so romantic! The author who writes under two different names is so talented in building worlds and creating unforgettable characters. This is definitely going to be stored under "books to re-read"!

I read a few of the other reviews on this story and it seems to be an editing problem that some are complaining about. Well, I did see one or two but let me just say that I was dragged so quick into the story, if there were major editorial mistakes, they blew right by. I was that engaged by the story.

Angel is a necromancer holding power over death. He and his younger brother are orphans, living in Boston, and he teaches magic discipline at a local school. He is his brother's keeper and that responsibility grounds him. It's sort of this love hate parent / brother type relationship and for Angel, family is everything. As the story unfolds, Angel keeps getting caught in situations where he has to unleash his powers. No, he's not an evil guy intent intent on world domination. . . Just a powerful necromancer that wants to live his life.

Simeon is an Elder vampire, one with power and responsibilities. When he finally makes a move on Angel, he's not afraid to show his interest and concern by offering help. His actions were a nice contrast to Angel's distrustful nature. As threats abound, the two join together and become stronger, together. They learn to trust.

I love it when an ancient vampire is stunned speechless. Nothing like flexing your power and fighting something that spits vampires out like candy and Angel does it so well. Even when a situation is out of hand, he's warning people back, looking out for the innocent, concentrating on the end goal. He has that core of integrity, even if it's in a sarcastic package. I am hoping this story continues and we see more of these characters as well as Daniel and Isaac. This one is too good to leave as a stand alone! - Dan's Wife

EDIT: I must've read this on the KU program because I recently purchased it when the price dropped. Looking forward to the next!

In most books the vampires are top of the food chain, so I enjoyed the premises of this one that had someone even the vampires were afraid of.
It was entertaining and although there were a few editorial issues, with wrong words or missing word, it really didn't take away from my enjoyment.
I wish there had of been a bit more on the build up of the relationship between Angel and Simeon, as the book started after 2 years of interactions.
Looking forward to the next book
