If Lani Lynn Vale writes it, I read it. This book is not different… it has the typical LLV storylines and humor but with the added paranormal element. Constantine is a hundreds year old vampire who is the “Master of the City”. Acadia is a woman who is sure of herself and her way of life. Since vampires have made themselves known to the world she is one of those who support them being out, but at the same time is wary. As you learn about her, you realize that all is not what it seems with her… and as the story plays out you understand why. There is a connection that you don’t realize that is there but makes a lot of sense as you learn more. Constantine is a vampire that keeps himself apart from dealing too deep with anyone because of some poor past exeriences with betryals. He keeps in inner circle extremely small, and doesn’t have a will to grow it. However, when he comes face to face with Acadia, he realizes that he has no control over that anymore.
These two are connected on an almost cellular level that neither really understands. This is a story that is mixed with humor and suspense and it is everything that I wanted. I like the fact that LLV took a chance delving back into this PNR world, and I am hoping that we get stories from the rest of this cast of characters.
