When the human and the vampire worlds collide, there will be hell to pay.
 
Luca Ambrus is a rare breed: vampire from birth, begotten by vampire parents, blood born. He is also an agent of the Council—the centuries-old cabal that governs vampirekind, preserving their secrecy and destroying those who betray them.

When a cryptic summons leads him to the scene of the brutal killing of a powerful Council member, Luca begins the hunt for an assassin among his own people. But instead of a lone killer he discovers a sinister conspiracy of rogue vampires bent on subjugating the mortal world.

All that stands in their way are the conduits, humans able to channel spirit warriors into the physical world to protect mankind. Chloe Fallon is a conduit—and a target of the vampire assassin who’s killing them. When Luca saves her life, an irresistible bond of trust—along with more passionate feelings—is forged between them. As more victims fall, Chloe and Luca have only each other to depend on to save the world from the reign of monsters—and salvage their own future together.

    " Lots of paranormal info...I liked it regarless of all the detail. The next book is due to come out this Spring and I will keep reading on. I felt like I spent allot of time reading this book, but I got a good feel of the characters and the drama behind each one. Can't complain I would read it again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Norma | 1/22/2014

    " DNF. I paid for it and have it on my kindle, so maybe I'll go back to it. But honestly, I dont think I will. So disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 1/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed the vampire story. It was well thought out and I hope there is another book on the way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joelle | 12/4/2013

    " Enjoyed the story it was great. Enjoyed the characters they kept it interesting and the book was face paced. The first book in the series and I think its off to a great start. Looking forward to the next book in spring 2011. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Oriana | 11/25/2013

    " One of the most boring books I ever read. The endless monologues were unbearable! I was done after 200 pages... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 11/22/2013

    " This book was fantastic, I can't wait for the second book - Warrior Rising. I listen to it as an audio book and it was great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 11/13/2013

    " A unique twist on vampires makes this a fun book to read, but the internal monologue of the characters tends to slow down the action and leave the reader yawning. A slow start, but worth it in the end. It will be interesting to see if the coming sequels will be as fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 11/11/2013

    " Alot going on in this one. Which is good for the story.. But I feel like just when it was coming together it ended. Thank God it's the 1st in a series cuz the 2nd book promises to be even better! I would recommend this read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 5/20/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 12/4/2012

    " I'm listening to the audiobook and I'm on disk 3. The story is sooooo slow, redundant and boring I don't know if I can finish it! Maybe it's because I just finished Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series which is action packed and an awesome vampire series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniele | 11/4/2012

    " The second book of this trilogy was due to come out in Spring of 2011, but they decided to shelve it in favor of writing another series. It still has not been finished and I for one would like to read it. Don't leave us hanging! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 9/30/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 9/4/2012

    " Even though I have never read a Vampire book, and wasn't sure I would like it, I loved it! I didn't like the cliff hanger at the end. And REALLY didn't like that there isn't a 2nd book coming out!!!! Would definitely read on in the series, were it to continue! "
