Book 2 in the Gardella Vampire chronicles. This book is good, but I didn’t think it was as good as her first. Maybe because I felt this is a little darker in nature. I marked down the stars simply because I was having a little trouble following the story line, the different characters, and the new vampire “object” which would help the vampires rule the world (this time it’s Akvan’s Obelisk, and the bad guy is Lilith’s son- Nedas). This book reminded me of The Empire Strikes Back , because it is darker, however, I wish that it was as good as the movie (which is my favorite Star Wars movie).

We find Victoria one year after the death of her husband. She travels to Italy to accomplish two things: to find Max (who has gone missing shortly after returning to his homeland), and to find out about a rising threat to humans- the Tutela (which is a group of mortals who socialize, aid, and feed the vampires all in the hopes of becoming an immortal themselves). Victoria’s aunt, Eustacia, also goes to Italy, but keeps herself separate from Victoria since Eustacia is a known Venator and Victoria is not (at least by Nedas and his vampires). Eustacia introduces Victoria to the Consilium, which is an actual location, a small church, which has a hidden underground gathering area where Venators go to learn, train, and meet. Can Victoria bring down Nedas and the Tutela? And can she save Max? The biggest question is- does Max want to be saved?
