Although this is book 18 in the series, the books are written in such a way that you will have no problems jumping right in. While there are characters from past novels interspersed into this story, it is done in such a way that it won’t frustrate you. You will most likely be tempted to read some of the earlier books too
In this the 18th Argeneau novel, we meet Valerie Moyer Veterinarian, who was kidnapped and being held, drugged, caged and abused by a vampire. She is a brave one though, and she saves not only herself but also nine other women who are in various stages of dying. This isn’t the only time she is brave in this novel. She is one of the better heroines that I’ve read lately. She doesn’t wait for a man to do the job, if she can she does it herself!
When one particular person on the rescue team finds and touches Valerie, he just knows he has found his life mate. Moreover, if Anders (his first name is Semen, can you believe that?!) wasn’t absolutely sure of this fact, then you better believe that Marguerite , Lucian and the rest of the gang are going to do their darnedest to see that things go as smoothly as they can under these circumstances.
I’ve like the way this series has been going lately and this book is no exception. It is difficult for an author to keep everyone’s interest in the same series after 18 books. However, I think that Ms Sands is doing an admirable job of it lately. Past books had been getting a little boring, perhaps even a little stale, but lately the books have been so much better. This one rates right up there with some of the best. While Ms Sands still has to deal with the back-story of how Immortals become so, she has done it in such a way this time that long-time readers won’t be tempted to skip pages.
I really am starting to love this series all over again.
