I started a review on my nook but had too much I wanted to say to deal with the little keyboard. I'm in LOVE! This was written with skill equal to the godmother of vampire fiction Anne Rice, certainly beats LK Hamilton into the ground with no effort at all. The culture created in this series is extraordinary, this author took great care to develop characters who you can't help wanting to know more about but never leaves you wanting. It brings a new depth to vampire fiction that has been missing from most books out there since Anne Rice stopped writing about our favorite blood drinkers. I have to admit I had the first in the series on my nook for almost 6 months before I read it because I forgot I'd downloaded it but over the past 36 hours I've read this and The Blood That Bonds. Passion, Anger, Humor, Frustration, Elation, Angst, and Love, I felt them all. This series is better than anything I've bought via the mainstream market this year and I hope it keeps coming. Christopher Buecheler you've created characters with real humanity and your dialog infallible. The best editing I've ever seen on Smashwords. I hate to say this as I live on a fixed income but I'd gladly pay a hardback price for this series. I fell in love with Two and Theroen in Blood that Bonds, and this time around I found more characters to love and hate. I need more, please, now!!
