Caroline Clifford’s bland life as a London tour guide flips upside down when her beloved uncle is brutally murdered at a Bulgarian archaeological site. While traveling to recover his remains, she meets a man who corresponded with her uncle. Jude Barrett is a biochemist on a mission — to rid the world of vampires… At first, Caro is dismissive of Jude’s beliefs, but she can’t ignore the signs that are all around her: the human bite marks on her uncle, the men following her, the anguished cries after sundown. Strange anagrams on her uncle’s passport lead her and Jude to a cliff-top monastery in Greece, where a shattering revelation connects a relic Caro inherited from her parents to an age-old text on immortality — and an enigmatic prophecy that pits the forces of darkness and light in a showdown that could destroy them all... “A fantastic read. Smart and sophisticated... A Da Vinci Code–esque adventure with a fresh take on vampirism and an emotional, sexy romance.” —Virna DePaul, author of Chosen by Blood “Bulgarian vampires and nonstop sex (not with the Bulgarian vampires), PLUS an illuminated lost manuscript, in a twisty tale of family mystery, murder, and corporate greed.” —Diana Gabaldon, New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series “A singe-your-fingers page-turner. Don’t miss this one.” —Shirley Hailstock, author of Some Like Them Rich Download and start listening now!

    " The premise of this book was very interesting. However, I felt it was very slow moving. In addition, not a huge fan of Jude. I thought he acted like an ass for much of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 2/10/2014

    " I couldn't put this book down. This would have been a five star novel if the relationships had been developed a bit more. "

    " a woman at my doctor's office gave this to me while i was waiting, and i started reading it, and only finished it because i had started it. this is not my type of book, so you might disregard my review. even if you are into this genre, it was only mediocre at best. it's a mass market trade paperback throwaway. "

    " I expected the same outline some book with with vampire stories. This book is a refreshing change from that. This book keeps you turning the pages. Not going to much away. But will tell you that I enjoyed reading this book. Waiting for book 2. From First-reads. "

    " Can't seem to get into this so I think I'm going to move to another book. I have like 10 books to read in 2 weeks. Maybe I will come back to this when I fish these. "

    " What a great book! Suspense, paranormal, quests-can't ask for more. "

    " Interesting idea, but could have been much better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 3/28/2012

    " Vampire book. Ended sort of abruptly. Nothing particularly wrong with it, but nothing to write home about, either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rayrumtum | 3/7/2012

    " Personally I thought this book about vampires was silly. It is a very pale shadow of Bram Stoker's wonderful novel. It attempted to be a Da Vinci Code for vampires and throw in plot elements from other bad books. I nearly quit a couple of time, but toughed it out. I recommend you bail. "

    " What the heck kind of ending was that?! "
