"My inspiration has always been Maggie Shayne's Wings in the Night." #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Christine Feehan
They told 20-year-old Charlie O’Malley that they had a cure for the rare blood condition that would eventually kill her–an untested, experimental cure. All they wanted in return was for her to join their elite military team and train to kill the Undead.
She took the deal, not because she cared so much about extending her life, but because it would make her strong–stronger than ordinary humans. Strong enough to kill the vampire who’d pretended to love her, taken her blood, used her body, and murdered her mother.
Killion was the last of his kind, or so he thought. When he found Charlie, he felt the pull. She had the rare Belladonna Antigen all vampires had as humans. Vampires were compelled to protect those rare mortals they called The Chosen. But with Charlie, the bond was different, more powerful than anything he’s felt before, and impossible to resist, even though surrendering to it will probably get him killed.
Ancient vampire elders Rhiannon and Roland come out of exile, risking their lives to help their mortal friend Roxy reclaim her granddaughter. But before the tale ends, their lives will be forever changed.
Join Maggie Shayne as she returns to her most beloved series of all time with this new beginning….

However, at one point she's being held by the government and suspecting they're lying about calling her family and when she says: "Well I'll just go home" the government official says, "Legally, I can only release you to your mother or grandmother." And she, being a 20-year-old, just rolls her eyes and believes it. How is she smart?
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The premise is fresh, the fantasy world full and convincing, and the characters passionate. Charlie’s character undergoes a clear transformation and her relationship with Killian is intense and riveting. The involvement of the government makes the story that much bigger, involving more than just the usual two characters and upping the stakes. The vampire characters of Rhiannon and Roland are equally dark and powerful, hinting at a rich back-story. Roxy is sassy and fun, bringing a lighter edge to the story. There wasn't a moment when I felt the plot was dragging, it’s non-stop action all the way. The ‘heart’ issues with the BD recruits, I must say, did seem a little over the top and could have been made much simpler and more believable, but overall, it was a great and well-told paranormal romance.
Honestly, there was only one thing I didn’t quite like and it was that Charlie didn’t want to keep being treated like a child but she acted like a child and she did not really think for herself until near the end of the book, she just kind of believed whatever anyone told her.
Otherwise, this was great. While I was mad at the main character, I was still so engrossed in the book that I finished it in day. The writing was beautiful and it just draws the reader into this world that doesn’t understand something different. It’s relatable in a sense, especially since it’s set just two years before 2015.
Now, while I did say something about how I didn’t like how Charlie acted, I can kind of understand why she listened to the wrong people. It’s hard to listen to anybody else when you’ve grown up thinking something was one thing when it really isn’t but still, the way she acted was childish. You don’t want to be treated like a child, stop acting like a child.
I would say that this would be a good vampire book for just about anyone, well anyone who isn’t sensitive to a lot of gore. One thing I will tell you is that there is a lot of death and blood.
