Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Meet Winter, a gorgeous, human-despising vampire accused of mass murder. Winter hides a secret that could clear him of the charge, a secret he fights to conceal. If known, it would be worse than the murder charge he faces.
Meet Dustin Belmont, fresh out of law school. He is also struggling, trying to jump-start his career, unable to turn down this job offer, no matter how weird these people seem.
Dustin is trying to wrap his head around who or what his new client is. Forced to spend a week at The Source, the bizarre vampire mansion preparing his case, Dustin will have loads of time to get to know his disagreeable, uncooperative client. But can Dustin even defend the gorgeous Winter when what he has done appears to be clearly undefendable?
This story wasn’t quite what I was thinking it would be but it was very interesting and took a while to really get going. Winter isn’t quite as he seems and not what he has always known. His family history has been kept from him his entire life and now it is coming for him. Friends and Dustin are going a long way to help and support him as he tries to stop his brother.
Winter doesn’t understand the changes going on in him body and isn’t sure who to trust. He ends up having to trust Dustin to try and save him but ends up trusting him with more. Winter has been very lonely, with the vampire’s rule that they can’t have lasting relationships with humans he has not had any consistent companion for a long time. I could feel Dustin’s confusion with this new world he is thrust into and his complete disbelief in the beginning, it takes him having to actually see it all happening for him to open up his mind to the world around him. I am interested to see how this series continues and what will happen with these characters.
The cover art by Martine Jardin is nice and gives good visuals of the characters.
