Slipping back into this series is, for me, like settling into a comfy chair, I love this series!
It still amazes me how Felicity Heaton can write these books that are part of a series but can also be read as stand alone (except the first 3 they must be read together) and still make sense, if that makes any sense! Each book is part of the bigger story and they all go together to give you the bigger picture.
Her world building in these books (and all of her others) is second to none, she writes about the struggles between love and duty very well and her descriptions of how the characters are feeling throughout the story really make you feel like you are going through the emotions with them.
This story follows more along the story line of the enhanced hunters and the midnight plot. Our main female is Eve, she has some real issues that need to be addressed, like the fact she spent her human life hunting vampires only to be betrayed by someone she trusted and loved which resulted in her death and now she has become the one thing she hated about all else, a vampire. But not just any old weakling vampire, she is a pureblood of the Vehemens bloodline, which came about due to some genetic manipulation carried out by her mother.
Enter our fabulous lead male Tor (sorry I need a moment..... its difficult to mention his name without going weak at the knees and dribbling like a fool) he is yet another fantastic lead male (Felicity writes strong lead men that you never fail to fall for). Tor has been tasked with the job of escorting Eve to her new home, being the mansion of the Vehemens bloodline. Her sister Lilith is mated to the head of the Vehemens bloodline, Lincoln (oh dear the weak knee problem has just cropped up again) and he has sent Tor to bring her home safely and protect her against everything, including herself.
Soon after their journey starts, it becomes apparent that this mission isn't going to be easy, someone is trying to kill Eve, Tor learns that she has revenge on her mind and when he hears why he swears to assist her in getting her revenge, cue some rather steamy scenes, and then the plot thickens, not only is the person she is hunting for revenge still trying to kill her, but he is also a large part of the midnight plan, can Tor help Eve get her revenge, can they and the Law Keepers prevent the next step of the Midnight plot coming to fruition, will Eve and Tor have their happily ever after?
You will have to pick up the book to find out!
Enjoy!!!! (I certainly did, I cannot wait for the next instalment)
Betrayed by one of her own and turned into a vampire, hunter Eve is consumed by her hunger for vengeance and has spent five years surviving hell, driven to take the life of the man she once loved. But just as she is about to close in on the hunter-turned-vampire, an event is set in motion that threatens to see him slip beyond her grasp forever—the leader of her bloodline has sent an escort to bring her to the family’s mansion. To a nest of the very creatures she once hunted and loathes.
A vampire assassin hardened by centuries of service, Tor is a man of discipline and loyalty, never straying from his mission or the rules set out for him, and has purged all his weaknesses, including his emotions.
But the moment he meets the broken, fiery female he is to escort to Oslo, something dangerous awakens in him, something possessive and powerful, and when he is pulled into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who betrayed her, Tor discovers he will do anything to protect the woman slowly claiming his heart and give her the vengeance she desires—even break all the rules.
Can Eve embrace her new vampire nature in order to have her revenge and find a reason to live again in Tor? Can Tor and Eve stop the man who betrayed her and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Or will he succeed in creating a new army of hybrid vampires who will rise up against the purebloods?
