Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It's also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious nightclub that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he's approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King, and the leader of the Brotherhood.
However, Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood. He's a symphath and the revelation of his deadly secret will result in his banishment to a colony for sociopaths. And a plot within and outside the Brotherhood take their toll against Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in the darkening world: Ehlena, a vampire untouched by corruption that has its hold on him - and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

You don’t really believe it’s possible to fall for a drug (Lord) dealer who’s also a pimp and has killer instincts to keep under control all the time, right? Wrong, of course. Rehvenge is one of the most fascinating characters I encountered in this series. And, believe me, there are a lot . . . Still, Rehv has something different that you can’t quite picture at first and perhaps not even totally comprehend until this very instalment, but it’s always there, you can feel it and, for a reason or another, it won’t make you dislike him even if you try. After Lover Avenged? I’m crazy about him!

I had a rush of strong emotions running through me the whole time, and I have to point out how much I loved the whole flirting between Rehv and Elhena. Those two seriously gave me chills, made me grin, sometimes even laugh, but I might have cried a little (too much), too . . . They’re so different and still so very close. A very well match, indeed. But if they are so, what can I say about John Matthew and Xhex? Now, they definitely made my eyes burn with tears, I can’t imagine how it’s going to be with the next instalment I’m about to read . . .

I loved the whole plot with all the usual unexpected, amazing twists, and the cliffhanger here was a real killer! Be prepared to have Lover Mine at hand as soon as you finish this one, or you’re going to seriously regret it!
