After a traumatic past, Elise, a vampire, has become a virtual recluse, living in abandoned subway tunnels, and avoiding humans and other vampires alike. Her life takes a rather sudden turn for exciting when a demon-posessed man with a death wish turns up on her doorstep.

A fun, quick, read for Frost fans. Cat, Bones, and Mencheres all make appearances in this novella. I'm used to strong, kick-ass heroines from Jeaniene Frost, but Elise isn't. She's suffered a lot in both life and her afterlife, and she doesn't live, so much as exist. She's going through the motions, because she doesn't want to dissapoint the only person left she does care for, Mencheres. She shakes her self from her apathy and ennui, but it makes her a little less interesting to read than Cat/Denise/Kira/Isa (from Happily Never After). There's not much space to get to know her in this short read, and I felt it got in the way.

More a look into the protaganists minds and changing characters, fans used to Frost's normal non-stop action approach may be dissapointed.

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as Happily Never After, which felt like it fit alot in a short space, but it's still a nice entertaining read, and a visit to the Night Huntress world is always entertaining, regardless of any faults.
