This third edition has many changes in the story from the first and second editions. A new publisher and new editors helped craft a much better book.
To me this book was beautiful in the journey that Rancour,or Rellick is on. He has been on this journey for 1000 years, so his insight to good and evil are profound. He has a deep love for Alix that is selfless and sacrificial, he is a man of honor. I loved the flashback scenes the best and the journal entries from Rellick, it made him honest and easy to admire. Though it is sad at the end it makes sense. This one left me still thinking about it.

Recommends it for: Perhaps Leela.
This book for me was an interesting mixture of the vampire diarys and twilight. It was scary at times, and romantic at others. I guess you just have to finish it to realize how beautiful it really can be.
