This is the story of Mencheres, Bones' "grandsire" and the man that gave him way too much power. Mencheres is very old, in fact, so old that he was a pharaoh from the line of Cain (according to Jeaniene Frost that is where the vampire ability comes from). However, Mencheres has lived too long, and is sick of fighting his life long nemesis and has given up and is committing suicide by ghoul.

Lucky for him, Kira the human PI shows up and saves him from the nasty monsters, but not so lucky for her. Kira all of a sudden finds herself embroiled in a world that she wasn't aware existed, and since Mencheres can't influence her, he can't wipe her memories of any of the things she has just learnt.

The first half of this book is exciting, Kira saves Mencheres, is kidnapped by him, he allows her to leave, she tries looking for him etc etc, however the second half is much slower, and features Kira assuring Mencheres that he isn't going to die and that he should have more faith in himself way too often. Mencheres is portrayed not as harshly in this book as in the Cat and Bones books, and Kira is portrayed as a very strong woman with a purpose "save one life"- which she is not afraid to stick to. I was disappointed with Cat and Bones in this book, when Mencheres was under suspicion, they believed him to be wrong, and weren't willing to give Mencheres new girl a chance to prover herself.

Overall I have mixed feelings about this book, and give the first half 4.5 stars, but the second half only 2 stars.
