For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain’s Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.

Forced to return home after death takes a member of her family, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. As a lone hunter apart from her team, Jenn is isolated — and at risk. She craves the company of her fighting partner, Antonio: his protection, his reassurance, his touch. But a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.

Then Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust herself — and her heart.

Ok I have to say that I usually don’t like it when the vampires are evil monsters but, in this story it fits.  The writing is the absolutely amazing and characters are intriguing this can only be achieved by experienced authors who know what they are doing and can do it extremely well.  I love all the flash backs because it helps you get into the characters heads and see why they are fighting or the reasons why they are doing the things that they are.  As in  Aurora’s case were she is held in a prison and tortured then turned into a vampire.   I also love the struggles that Antonio has to face by being in love with Jenn and fighting his blood lust because of his vampire nature.  Then there is Sky, the white witch that can do magic and hides a secret stalker.  Also Holgar, the Dutch werewolf who has to hide and control his animal nature and all the others that make up this group of hunters.  The various characters and there complex relationships make this book what it is.

Over all this book is something special and I can’t wait for the sequel.  I know that with these two authors the books they write will always be an enjoyable experience.  I have never been disappointed and don’t think I ever will.  If you haven’t read any of their books  you are truly missing out on a unique experience.
