An attempt on the life of the most powerful vampire in North America has been made. The hunt is on to find the gunman as two Vampire Lords are on the brink of war.
In Cyn and Raphael's first novella, someone has sent a sniper after Raphael and the vampire Lord, along with his head strong mate, are searching for the gunman and the one who sent him. The investigation puts some strain on their relationship and shows it's not always sweet words and hot sex between this power couple. I love this pair and think their flaws only make them stronger characters because it makes them more relatable and "real".
We meet Raphael's new Lieutenant, a position left open after the departure of Duncan, and we get know a little more about Lucas, one of Raphael's children and another vampire Lord. We met Lucas at the end of Duncan's book where it's briefly mentioned what's taking place in his territory. We get a better grasp if what's to come and a little more about the Irish vampire himself. It all has me even more excited for his book.
There's a little bit of everything in this novella: action, romance, relationship turmoil and humor. I think D.B. Reynolds did a wonderful job of setting up new characters while not taking away from Cyn and Raphael. Everything worked together great and the only thing I wish is that it was longer. I can't get enough of this series.
