Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Marcus is a Guardian, a vampire Guardian, a healer amongst his people. he has been alone since he had to kill his mate after she was taken n the Demon Wars some 300 years before. Cassie is a nurse, who has been alone since her ex dumped her on their wedding day, cos he wanted children she could not give him. Shocking twists and turns and betrayal of the highest sort, this book tells of their fight to be together, after of course, they both admit they need each other! oh this book has it all! vampires, dragon shifters, demon shifters, Gods who like to stick their noses in as and when they fell like it, bad guys galore too! sufficiently different to the vampire theme to make it interesting, it grabs from the beginning and does not let you go. I read this in one sitting, or rather one very long soak in the tub! I could not put it down! I loved the little dig about sparkly vampires too! "babe, please! only if you spread me with glue and dip me in glitter!" I think the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is there is yet a second book out, but I sincerely hope their will be. I can see a story between Cassie's sister and one of the Guardians, possibly Seth. but they all deserve their own book, and if they are written, I WILL be buying them!
