Shari Richardson has done it again. She has once again sucked me into the vampire world and didn’t let go until I reached the last page. I read this book in a day. As I stated in my review of Mourning Sun, this series of books really remind me of Twilight! But unlike Twilight, I can bear to read them. Mairin’s dreams/premonitions began to get worse as things began to change for the worse, leading to a battle with a demon in the end where the vampires and panthers must work together in order to survive. The battle was epic!
I thought the book was very well written and I really enjoyed reading it. I was so sad when it was over! I didn’t care too much for the character Alfred. I felt that he was a little too old to be jealous of a human girl and his attitudes towards her were quite petty. I also thought it was cute that Kerry and Xavier started dating! It seems like the Cote family is no where near normal; Mairin is dating a vampire, Kerry’s dating a werepanther, and their mom’s partner is an angel! Talk about crazy!
I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I loved the story line, I love the characters and I love how it was written. I think Shari Richardson is very good with her words and expressing herself through her characters. I truly enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to reading the third book of the series!

The story continues with Mathias and Mairin, the angel, a witch, werepanthers, psychic’s and a demigod with its little minions. With a new character added, the queen Serina. An evil Vampire that controls and kills at her own leisure. Making slaves and keeping them under her sadistic hold.
Promises are broken in this follow up and Mairin who made a sacrifice is left in despair and depression. Grieving for the love she could not have. Captured and bounded to a vampire that seems to have grown cold towards her. But her magnetic pull to the supernatural becomes stronger as the story unfolds and she inherits more then she bargained for.
Kerry’s own gifts come out more at the end with Tawnya and Lorraine playing a low profile in this follow up. So far I am not overly impress with the angel.
Xavier has become more prominent in his role as protector and I really start to like this young man.
From both young men, Mathias and Xavier you get a strong sense of chivalry. Doing what is right not only to the women they have fallen love with but also to the people that is in their care.
Making this story an interesting read
