Blaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren’t over yet.
Five years after Blaze was maimed by Cyrus Chimola, a powerful vampire with a penchant for torture, he’s still trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered mercenary with the ability to bend fire to his will and to see in infrared, Blaze’s mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When Chimola and his crew return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, Blaze is forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.
Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie has made it her life’s goal to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. When she brings in Blaze Knight for suspected murder, she discovers he’s not only innocent, he isn’t a man at all—he’s a half-vampire hybrid working with a band of brothers for the U.S. military. Valerie has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she quickly falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t seem to let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she’s ever known.
In a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, Blaze and Valerie will find danger at every turn, risking everything they’ve come to know and love, including one another.
The plot was incredible and very very well developed. The imagery was so vivid that I felt like I was with Blaze, Valerie, JJ, Kasem and the others. I loved how the author gave us a third person perspective; it allowed me as a reader to know more than I would have if it were just in first person. The idea of hybrid vampire/humans was one that I don’t think I’ve read before and it gave the story more depth. I liked how the hybrids had these superhero-like powers, like Blaze’s fire starting ability, but were also still in touch with their human side. It made their characters much more intriguing.
Each character was developed with great care; Blaze and Valerie grew throughout the book and I’m very happy with the changes in their characters. Blaze has a lot to wrestle with and Valerie, though skeptical of him, helps Blaze grow. Valerie has to overcome her fear and her past in order to move forward and Blaze is the one to help her with that.
I really hope that there are more books with these characters because I loved them. I’ll definitely be adding this book to my “Read over again” list. Go buy it now!
