Heku is a great series of books, it shows the chaos that can ensue when you insert one fiery headstrong red headed woman in the middle of a militaristic race of immortals who are used to following their way of doing things.
I am really happy with the way the author dealt with all the different rules that are normally associated with vampires, she created her own race, the Heku. By creating her own race it gave the author the freedom to make them how I feel a vampire should. The Heku are not your normal vampires, they are not allergic to garlic or sunlight, and if you tried to ward one of with a cross he would probably just stab you with it and then have himself a nice snack. These are a new breed that are strong impossing characters, who are lightning fast and extremely intelligent. It is also kind of fun to see the types of toys they can buy when money is no object. The best part about the Heku is they don't glimmer or pout!
The characters in this story have very good chemistry together, they may not always get along but you can tell that care very deeply about each other. The story reads very well and the dialog flows nicely and is very natural. I am really enjoying reading this series because there is a little everything in it, suspense, drama, romance, and enough humor to make it not feel to heavy. Once you start reading it you will not want to put it down.
I actually came earlier to give this book a fairly bad review. I read on Twitter about the added content coming and asked the author for a sneak peak. She sent me the entire book with the extended edition and I was pleasantly surprised. The book went from one I wouldn't read again to one of my favorites of the series. Now I just hope TM will put out book 8!
