Still not as great-great as the first two in the series, but great-good. I thought Tara to be a strong female character, who knew her own strength and still pushed on. I thought it was planned out, and you never really know who the 'bad guy' is, but you still manage to figure it out by the end. What I like is the ties from the past to the present and what it means for the characters.

I have re-read this book and I found it as wonderful a read as the first time around. It is a great read when it is pooring outside and the only light in the room is a small reading lamp.
Nickie
I really enjoyed this book. It actually scared the crap out out of me. Which is funny because. I have read much scarey books. I thin it was the suspense.
Andrea
I just finished this book and I loved it! The story was exciting and I was totally drawn into it.

[Spoilers] Shannon Drake has added another element to her vampire series: The Alliance. This is apparently a combination vampire slayer/watcher organization that’s been around since the beginning of time. Our newest heroine, Tara, is the genetic inheritor of her family’s membership in this alliance. However, this does not make her as cool as Buffy. She’s got the dreams about vampires, but no super-powers, although she might be a little better at killing them than the average human. She’s also go ...more

Basically everyone except Sean and Maggie appear in this Paris-set book. This time, there is no vampire-human romance.... There are wolves.

Resistant to the idea of vampires and the Alliance, Tara almost makes herself easy prey for the two older vampires. The final showdown is thrilling.
Jessica
Book was ok. Felt like something was missing from the storyline, cant quit put my finger on it. Did enjoy that the book was descriptive and action filled.
DK Hoffman
A good read with interesting characters. Set in France, which was nice for a change.
Kathryn
This book was difficult to read. There were a lot of times where the author would just go on about a character in a flashback and only refer to them as he or she. Sometimes it wasn't obvious that it was a flashback and this just served to confuse the situation even more. For the first third of the book I thought there were twice as many character as there really were. Another thing that I found irritating was the way the author kept using... Yeah, ellipses. They were everywhere! On just 2 pages ...more

3 & 1/2 stars. Shannon Drake's ability to transport me to a different time and place is what makes her books appealing. She has a way of making a book's setting come alive. I'm looking forward to reading the fifth book in the series because it's set in Salem, MA- a place I've always wanted to visit.
Katie
I found this book underwhelming. There were parts where I wanted to keep reading to find out who was good/evil, but by the end, I had to push myself to finish. Not one of my favorites...not sure if I will read any other in the series...
Serra Zander
Meh. Vampire, werewolves, hot chicks... The overall story was boring and the dialogue was weird. Nothing special to write home about. Not going to lie, I didn't finish it, it was predictable and boring.
Liz
I hated this book. Boring, boring not even the fact that it was vampires did I like it. I will remember not to read her series again.
Christine Hayes
I purchased this book from my library book sale.It took me a few weeks to finish. I didn't really care about the ending or the characters.
Carolb
I found this book to be just an 'okay' read. It pitted vampires and werewolves together - a combination that I'm not really fond of.
Heather
I read the first three books in this series and about to start it. I am really looking forward to it.
Brooklynn N.
Its a pretty good book, but I couldnt finish it. Its just not.... captivating for me. Maybe in the future.
Megan
Another in Shannon Drake's vampire series. Okay- until the end... The ending left much to be desired...
Flocharda
Todos los libros de esta serie me encantan. No son los típicos libros de vampiros ^^
Stacey
Really nothing new here. Vampires, werewolves, etc. Same old, same old formula.
Katie
