Amongst the popular genre of paranormal romance author's need to be creative and offer an original myth to pique the readers interest. Miller has created an alternate society where Therians (shifters) and vampires battle under a the unseeing gaze of the mundanes. In Crimson Bay, war is brewing as the promise of a prophecy draws near.
Slade, a Therian assassin, has been tasked to infiltrate a local khiss and await orders. His boss has a plan to rid Crimson Bay of the vampires once and for all. Slade shifts into vampire form and is welcomes into the khiss as a newborn by Dylan. His immediate and passionate attraction to her is confusing for him, as are his sudden cravings and increase in strength and speed. While determined to complete his mission, spending time with Dylan breaks down the stereotypes he has always held of vampires and he finds himself torn between duty and destiny.
Dylan cares little for the politics of war, but as the owner of ReVamp, a support system for new and troubled vampires, she is concerned that her race is buckling under increased pressure from the Therians particularly as the blood supply meant to satisfy the community is somehow tainted. The khiss has given Dylan just three days to solve the riddle of the contamination or face being shut down. Desperate to save ReVamp, Dylan accepts Slade's help to solve the mystery despite her reservations and her attraction to the unusual newborn vampire.
Intervamption blends action with emotion and is supported by a solid plot. While the star crossed romance between Slade and Dylan is the focus of the story, Miller doesn't neglect the elements that create an interesting story. She grounds her characters firmly in an imaginative society with strong world building that reveals an interesting lore, and political and social system. This may give this new series an edge over others in the genre who rely almost solely on the romance to carry the story.
Intervamption veers to the darker side of the genre where I had expected something lighter from the book description but I enjoyed the well paced, tension filled storyline and will most likely pick up the second installment.
