|Another fantastic book cover! The art is by Nekro again and depicts Chrysabelle so
well. The covers of this series are awesome, tempting to those like me who judge a book by
its cover. The book does not disappoint either, continuing Mal and Chryss fight
against Tatiana and the breaking of the Covenant. You need to have read the first two
books in the series Blood Rights and Flesh and Blood -
or youll be lost; they have so much information in them. This book has several
storylines tightly interweaved together and the story told from the POV of those involved
in each one.
The barrier between humans and othernaturals has been broken and it is
almost Halloween, the night their power is strongest. Creek finds the dead daughter of the
mayor, drained from what looks like a vampire attack. Estranged from her mother, she was a
comarre wannabe and recently gave birth. Pressed for answers, Creek has to convince the
mayor there are othernaturals and to cancel Halloween. The mayor and her werewolf
bodyguards take refuge at Chrysabelles to ride out the storm.
Chrysabelle is still recovering from the loss of her comarre markings - the sigma - in Flesh
and Blood, but eager to complete her mission to find her comar brother. She need
information from the Aurelian to do this, but needs her sigma to do this. To get them she
needs sacred gold, not easy to come by. The only thing that might do is the Ring of
Sorrows, which has been hidden in the fae realm. Chrysabelle, Malkom, and Mortalis head to
New Orleans to retrieve it, a city that has outlawed vampires. Caught up in fae politics,
they cant get back to help defend New Miami during Halloween.
Doc and Fi are finally free now the witchs spell has restored Docs ability
to shift to leopard form. But theres a catch, now the witch can see through
Docs eyes and control his body. And she wants Doc to bring her the comarre
wannabes baby. Fi locks him in Chrysabelles wine cellar during Halloween to
keep him safe from the witch. Meanwhile Tatiana gains more power and finds new allies. She
sends a Trojan horse to storm Chrysabelles house at Halloween and retrieve the Ring
of Sorrows. We learn more of Damian, her former comar who fled and found sanctuary in
Clever plots, lots of action, sexual tension and vampires that dont sparkle. This
series gets more intriguing with each book. I cant wait for book 4 & 5 to be
released no information yet on when that will be. Read them. The series has an
interesting new twist on the same old vampire story.
