Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who’ve wronged her, including every member of Jon’s vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear–

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
When I started reading this book, I struggled to get into it. Instead of pushing myself, I put it down for a day and tried again the following day. I was able to read some but still found myself not completely understanding all that was taking place, so I looked up the series online and found that this is actually the second book in this series. I have not had a chance to read the first book, but based on my own experience, I would read book one first and then try this one.

Jon is our vampire who when he was living was a Marine. This drew me in because I love vampire lore and well…I married a Marine. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t learn more about Jon’s training in the Corps and how it relates to the story. Law is a hybrid vampire who prefers to be by herself. In my opinion, her character is one that could have used a bit more polishing. She seems to repeat the same things (movements, comments, etc.) throughout the book.

Maybe it’s because I haven’t read the first book, but the flashbacks and random voices that Jon hears were quite confusing. They didn’t seem to really fit the story. It was also a little confusing as to why both Law and Jon are always on sacred grounds; for him, he’s obsessed with his grave and for her, she’s always hiding in an abandoned church. There were some touchy subjects that made this book hard to read, such as rape, PTSD and torture/kidnapping. These can be triggers for those who may suffer from PTSD or have been through any of those horrible crimes.

I can’t say for certain if I would read the first book or if I’d recommend this one to anyone. All I can say is if you do read it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
