By day...

Los Angeles, 2040: When the terrorist known as Medusa threatens to kill millions with a stolen nuclear bomb, Nick Jameson makes a fateful decision. He reveals himself on global television as a Daywalker - a vampire with a soul. To save Los Angeles, Nick exposes not only his own gifts but three separate cultures based on millennia-old magic.

By night...

The three metahuman races exist in careful balance, working to maintain a fragile peace. Nick and his fellow Daywalkers successfully master their natural bloodlust. The Sentinels, armed with both magic and steel, repress their warlike instincts. And even some Nightwalkers, normally their natural enemies, have deserted the Court of Shadows to join the triple alliance. Nick Jameson is deeply involved with two such Nightwalkers - handsome Lorcan and powerful Rory. Both men love Nick. But neither can protect the new Ambassador to Humanity from the events he has set in motion.

By the sword...

Jeremy Harkness was lured into Medusa's service under false pretenses. A loner with no one and nothing to cling to, he was willing to die for his cause. But the night Medusa tried to obliterate Los Angeles, Jeremy met Nick Jameson, triggering the onset of his own psychic gifts. For Jeremy is the third race of metahuman, a Sentinel, born to kill the Nightwalkers with no quarter asked or offered. And neither Medusa nor the Court of Shadows will settle for peace when they can make war.

    " The plot line was okay and the characters also but for some reason I couldn't get into this. I got a good quarter of the way into it but had a hard time with the jumping back and forth into memories. Can't really put my finger on why this book wasn't super appealing to me because at first blush it seemed like something that was right up my alley. But I stopped forcing myself to read it. "

    " An epic story. The most complicated a story is the longer it takes for me to finish. This was complicated. The world building is complex and carefully done. The characters are so "well drawn" and complex. It was a fascination to read. The story of this "magical" society trying to come out to human society and integrate is full of twists and turns. The author has drawn me into this world and I can not wait to read the rest of it. "

    " I was impressed with the author's creativity and imagination. He created characters and a reality where magic and high technology melded, coexisting with the familiar, in a way that felt "real". There were so many elements that drew me in... the characters' histories and genesis, their powers and vulnerabilities, the triumphs and tragedies. "

    " My first impression of this book was: "Wow, this is one hefty book!!" - and you definitely get a whole lot of book for the price with this unique vampire novel! A mix of fantasy and sci-fi, there are several intertwining plots and many characters to keep track of, which can make it a littel confusing despite the glossary, cast, and timeline at the beginning. There were also a few small editing errors, but considering the size of the book they really were not very common and didn't detract from the quality of the story. An overarching theme in the novel was love, and I found it refreshing that many kinds of love were represented throughout, although it was a little bit skewed toward homosexual love. But overall this was an interesting, complicated book filled with an incredible world of beings and I would definitely continue to read this series! Highly recommended for all readers of vampire novels, sci-fi novels, or general fantasy/magic novels. "

    " World-building that is, quite simply, genius. The Pact Arcanum series is sure to be a big hit with hardcore vampire fans, who want something more than sparkling paranormals or shallow love affairs. It is a deep and complex tale with political and romantic elements. "

    " I'm on book 4 of the series now and it really is quite amazing. The world building is spectacular as is the suspense. This is one of the best science fiction/supernatural series I've ever read. Shame that it doesn't have a bigger following. It's quite spectacular. "

    " This one was slightly outside my normal; style, but OH, it was GOOD! It will definitely be going on my re-read pile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SueM | 2/24/2013

    " This 2nd edition with new edits has manged to eliminate the feeling of distance from the characters I encountered in the previous edition. The scene with Michael Danvers' parents now really makes me cry as I feel closer to Nick than i did previously. It is now truly a 5 star read for me. "
