This story has all the right elements and is a great premise for a different, harder and more aggressive paranormal love story. There is great tension in what appears to be a very one sided adult relationship lived in the seedier side of New York night life. It is also something of a coming of age story for Aaron who finds himself in a bloodlust relationship with the enigmatic Michelle.

What doesn't ring true for me is the development of their emotional bond. Not that the tension of being a bloodslave isn't a great element to the story but the depth of the emotional transition that I wanted just didn't come through for me. For significant sections of the book I felt nothing for Michelle as a heroine and yet she had a great backstory. Aaron grows as a complex hero throughout the story but the ease with which he engages other sexual encounters makes his claims to one eternal love for Michelle a little difficult to believe.

I am hoping that there is more to these two as the series progresses because they have great promise in what is really an engaging and well constructed narrative.
