The members of the Vampire Guard—Jonas Forge, spy and soldier turned cop; computer hacker extraordinaire Blair Turner; Declan, thief, con man, and ex-pirate; and medical examiner and werewolf Dr. Lucas Coate—face a dangerous and elusive enemy.
And this time, it’s personal.
Over the course of three hundred years, a man has touched each of their lives in ways they are only just realizing. When a hunt for a psychotic killer in the present resurrects memories and clues from the past, they discover how they have been affected and are bound by the existence of a ruthless vampire criminal. Now, while preventing a heist at a high-tech art show and thwarting several large-scale explosions, the team must employ their unique blend of science and supernatural abilities to put an end to the machinations of the man toying with their lives.
This time, he won’t slip through their fingers.
This time, it’s more than a case. It’s a hunt, and Forge, Blair, Declan, and Lucas won’t stop until they’ve captured their quarry.
This was a great continuance of the Vampire Guard series. These four characters are wonderful for each other; they can play off the others’ strengths wonderfully. This book kept moving with another twist just around the corner to keep the reader’s interest.
In this story we see even more of the characters’ backgrounds and how they are connected. I love how connected all of the friends are and not just the soul mates when disasters happen and when they are just laid back. They are all surprised by the additional connections they find to each other while working on this case.
I loved seeing them play off each other’s strengths to solve the mystery and catch the bad guy. Being able to see the thoughts and emotions of the four main characters goes a long way to understand what is going on in the story and to stay connected with the many characters. I will commend this author, she does a wonderful job with her writing of keeping the characters separated that I don’t get confused and have to check back on which character I am focusing on at the time as I often to in other books. I am loving this series and can’t wait to read more when they come out.
Cover art by TL Bland is great and is following the basic pattern for the series.
