Read from May 17 to 20, 2012 — I own a copy

Apart from the cover (which I had to look at time and again to figure out what was what!), I enjoyed this book.

I don't care that other peeps are comparing it to a well-known brotherhood series; I don't care that (maybe) the writing was a little slack in places; I don't care that there was a 'mate' bonding thingummy in action; nor that there's a bitch of a dictator who tells the 'band of brothers' what to do so 'suck it'; and I really don't care that vampires and wings and warriors all get mixed up in a blender!!

In fact, that's what made me smile and say 'yeah! something diferent!'. My mind took a while to process good vamps who were also warriors who also had wings !! but I got there - smiling!

And this is probably why I liked the story: - it is a story like many others (who cares?); it should have had some better editing/polishing (but who cares?); it's not completely original (who cares?); but it is fun, and angsty, and a HEA in the making; and does lead on to more of the same old, same old....

Entertaining, and (for me) an original concept!

Crazy4more you one of those who kept looking back to the cover to confirm who, what and where the scene was from...I'm guilty of that too. It bugged me to death, Kerrick supposed to have to hair and huge wings...not like Tom Cruise, sigh....

Carole-Ann Yup, it was the huge wings that got me puzzled :)

And don't even bother comparing some of the covers in the following stories - the depictions are totally lacking.

Pretty covers yes, but I couldn't relate in my mind :(

Crazy4more LOL, my sister thought I was too weird to pay attention to the covers. Hey, at least the got the cave entrance right. Glad I found another reader crazy about the details too.
