Format: Paperback
Jenn has lived and trained at Spain's Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones, for the past two years. Jenn is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. However the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.
Jenn is forced to face returning home after death takes a much loved member of her family. During this trip home, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. Jenn a lone hunter apart from her team, she is isolated and that means shes at risk. Jenn craves the company of Antonio her fighting partner. She also misses what Antonio always offers her which is his protection, his reassurance, his touch. The problem is that a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.
Shockingly Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held in her heart and mind as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust both herself and her heart.

I found this book quite different to what else is out there. Yes it has vampires and vampire hunters but they are not in their usual setting and storyline. I enjoyed reading about the well described characters and you genuinely feel for her and sense her heart breaking when she is betrayed by one of the people she ought to be able to trust completely with her life. However Jenn may lack confidence in the beginning as you read you come to realise she is the glue that holds the vampire hunting group together. Each member of the team has their own issues and problems as well as their own strengths and qualities. It is the case they may even distrust one another or bicker between themselves but when they come up against their enemy they become as one united against their foe.

Having felt a little cheated with the least book that I read by these two authors (Dark Secrets 3) I was a little apprehensive to start a new series. I shouldn't have been but you know when that little niggle has wormed its way between your shoulder blades that makes you wonder if it's worth spending out for? Well that had been there for some time and unfortunately it had put me off starting this title.

Afterwards when I looked back, I can understand why it was there but did feel a little silly when I started this title and was pleasantly surprised as elements that I'd liked from the two authors writing styles came flooding back with some great characters, some interesting premises and a kick ass plotline that blew my expectations away. I really wondered why I'd delayed and with most of my niggles soothed away by the authors writing I suddenly rediscovered with a crash why I'd come to doubt them.

Whilst the concept and majority of the book felt like reinvention to a certain degree, when the principle heroine collapsed in the third act (mentally and physically) I suddenly remembered why I'd been put off the authors as this sequence felt more like a way to pad out an idea that was only half baked. Yes that top part was gooey, delicious and full of all sorts of wonder but the rest, not so much, just a big mess that needed more time before being taken out of the oven.

That said there is still a lot of interest to be had within but the authors really need to find a serious fix for the principle heroine and one that will allow the readers to see why she was suddenly given a lot of responsibility after the meltdown that felt like it would go on forever. While I do have problems with this book, I am prepared to give these two another crack of the whip provided that the next release in this series fixes a lot of the problems to do with our heroine. If they don't then it's pretty much the last book by them I'll read.
