Marie Treanor is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She has a wonderful writing style. It has an interesting historical feel and when I read her words, I can see the richness and beauty of the locations she describes. Her stories are so much more than mere romance novels, they are a sexy, intense and intriguing mythological adventure.

Elizabeth Silk has been working as a temporary professor at a college in her home town. As much as she applies herself to her craft, she is lonely and heartbroken over her brief trist with the ancient vampire, Saloman. She knows it does no good to dwell on relationship that can never be; but, she cannot escape thoughts of him. When bodies of victims who stem from her bloodline are found she feels she must contact a movie star cousin, Josh Alexander she has yet to meet. She must warn him that he may be next in line. Of course, Josh thinks Elizabeth is beautiful but bonkers. Yet, he invites her on a plush dinner with a powerful and conniving U.S. Senator who has rented a house in England. Little does she know that the trip will propel her back into danger and back into the arms of Saloman.

Josh possess a secret. He has been entrusted with the family's antique sword. He knows that Senator Dante lusts for it like a junkie craves crack. But he is ignorant as to just how far he will go to get it. After the sword is stolen. Josh and the Senator returns to New York. Elizabeth and Saloman team up to go after the sword and discover thwart the Senator's attempt at immortality and power. Elizabeth and Saloman have opposing aims but they lead to the same destination. In the end, Elizabeth will have to betray the man she loves and will this bring an end to both her life as well as their love?

I just loved this story and how the mysteries are ever unfolding. I especially enjoy seeing the growth in all of the characters. Thanks to Saloman's prompting, Elizabeth no longer views the world in black and white and with the guidance of Elizabeth, Saloman is able to see the value in mercy. What is so compelling about this series is that Marie Treanor writes vampires the way they should be written. They are not fluffy bunnies that can be trained to the wims of humans, they are evil and do no apologize for being so. This is what makes this series so interesting. The reader truly does not know just who the bad guy really is: human or vamp?

If you are looking for something new and different, definitely give the Awakened by Blood series a try. You will not regret it.
