I really enjoyed reading this book lol of course I started reading the 3rd book in this series so this story really filled in the blanks.

While I liked this short story a lot I really wished that the author could have done it as a full length novel as the story deserves.

I loved seeing Devlin and Justin meet, and become The Righteous.
But I didn't expect to see Morrigan and Cullen again-a bit of a treat, that.
Justine is an opera singer in Paris, and former courtesan to both King Louis XIV 's and King Charles. A beautiful, talented woman, who was very dangerous.
Devlin watches Justine take out 3 vampires who are killing a human as they feed from her, and he is more than intrigued, he feels alive for the first time since, well, since he'd been alive ;)
I wish we had gotten more of their courtship before she was turned, and the fall-out of that decision. But I absolutely LOVED the ending scene with Cullen and Morrigan, though. I think I am in love with Cullen.
Note-you don't need to have read the Cin Craven series to follow this one, it's a stand-alone, but at the same time, it added a new layer to Justine and Devlin I hadn't seen before.

Having read the Cin Craven book series I can say that this short story really gives you a chance to understand this couple better and I found that I actually liked the characters more, whereas before I wasn't really much for them. I'd definatley recommend having a read if you enjoy the Cin Craven series.
