Book Description

Note: This is the fourth book in the series. It will be confusing if you skip books two (Hunter) and three (Lineage), which each contain elements of an overriding plot arc that comes to a head in this book, as well as main characters who crossover. The books in this series are not standalone.


Some people just won't stay buried...

Zara Lain, narcissistic vampire and assassin, cleaned up after a crazy warlock tried to build a vampire army, made some cash when the North American covens were left in shambles, got away when framed for the murder of a Demon Hunter, and dealt with some idiots who tried to jumpstart Armageddon. None of that could prepare her, however, for the moment when her lover of the undead persuasion awakens...

And promptly tries to kill her.

She's raised a handful of orphaned baby vampires during the past six years and she knows the score: if they don't get sane again, they have to be staked. And even if she can fix her would-be boyfriend, he's not the only formerly deceased one in town who wants to kill her. Old enemies are back to put a cramp in her love life, ruin a good pair of heels, and just maybe end the world.

An apocalypse is nigh...and it gets a lot worse than having nothing to wear to the occasion.

More About the Author

Skyla Dawn Cameron has been writing approximately forever.

Her early storytelling days were spent acting out strange horror/fairy tales with the help of her many dolls, and little has changed except that she now keeps those stories on paper. She signed her first book contract at age twenty-one for River, a unique werewolf tale, which was released to critical and reader praise alike and won her the 2007 EPPIE Award for Best Fantasy. She now has multiple series on the go to keep her busy, which is great for her short attention span. She is also a proud Writer of Unlikable Female Characters™.

Skyla is a fifth generation crazy cat lady who lives in southern Ontario where she writes full time, works as a freelance designer, stabs people with double pointed knitting needles, is an avid gamer, and watches Buffy reruns. If she ever becomes a grownup, she wants to run her own Irish pub, as well as become world dictator.

She probably won't ever become a grownup, though.

You can visit her on the web at When she's not writing or being glared at by cats, she's probably on Twitter. You should ping @skyladawn and tell her to get back to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Nate is awake... 29 Dec. 2013
By lyra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Back to Zara's POV for this fourth novel in the Demon's of Oblivion series. Nate awakens and Zara has to deal with the possibility that he is damaged or just plain pissed about being killed by his girlfriend in book one. We learn more about Zara's past, and whilst Zara tries to reconcile her fantasy boyfriend with reality, supernatural politics start to complicate matters even further. First of all don't be tempted to jump from book 1 to book 4 like I did. It's certainly possible to work out the overall narrative but the supporting characters lose their impact without their back stories, and some of the supernatural shenanigans are lost.

Whilst overall I really like the novel, and think that this is Cameron's strongest to date, Zara is an odd heroine and I didn't always find her POV a comfortable read. Cameron obviously feels under no obligation to make Zara likeable. You may feel Zara's backstory helps you to undertand how Ana reinvented herself as a vampire, but Cameron doesn't pull any punches in her character portrayal. I won't go into more detail but despite her humour, Zara has a darker edge than any other UF heroines I have come across, (eg Kate Daniels, Dory Basarab, Rachel Morgan, Anita Blake etc).

Fast paced action, more focus on Nate and Zara's relationship, a range of supporting characters and the threat of the Apolcalypse make for a varied and engaging read. This is rapidly turning into one of my favourite UF series and it's still a bargain on Kindle! The free short is from Mishka's POV set just before Bloodlines and clarifies just why she hired Zara to murder Nate in book 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes! Action packed story where the apocalypse was thought to be cinched, and relations. 28 Oct. 2013
By MelHay - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
We start, with Zara as she is released from Dragomir's basement, when she was cleared as "right of mind." Now Ana and those she knew are of the past, dead by the demons hand. The demon named Zara Lain.

Zara full of irritation looks at her annoying cell phone as it has not stopped ringing or vibrating while discussing price negotiations with a potential client, to eliminate his bosses older and not so human sister. Nate is awake! But alright? That's another issue, his a mage turned vampire and that is not done with the dangers that come with the combination. Now Zara needs to find a living mage-turned-vampire that is NOT crazy, to help her love. Zara calls in her help, the ones she has brought into her "group" slowly over the last few books. Her "friends," alive or dead. All for Nate. She would, and will, do anything for Nate, even tie her "friends" down until they help if not willing. There are a few who won't stay dead, and Zara now has to battle for her love and sanity, along with the secret society that seems to not want Zara around, and a prophecy that is floating around.

I really liked the dreams and flashbacks of Zara as she was coming into existence. This sheds a whole new light on Zara, her obstacles to being strong, and the insecurities she still doesn't realize she has. Also it parallels with Nate and his new born days. We get to see glimpses of when Ana turned and what she did, working to become Zara and where her name came from. Zara also has flashbacks of her time with Nate, remembering the love and feelings between, fun, and more. Then Zara's dark feelings from when she was turned seep in as well.

Chapter two is the short story at the end of Lineage, and still stunning to read the second time. It is no secret, Nate wakes in this book. But it's his condition that is questionable. Zara has it bad for Nate. She may not want to admit it, but the first two chapters prove it to me. Can Zara do what seems, pretty well seems, needs to be done to her love, Nate? Zara tries taking clues from the past Nate to help Nate through his condition when he wakes, but it might not help but confuse the poor man more.

Exhumed is a short seven months after Lineage ended, and we quickly learn where everyone is now. Some not so good, and some happy as can be. So many people come back in this book! It's like a reunion from Oblivion; Fists, knives, guns, fast cars, magic, and fangs and claws. I'll mention a few who return, but the others I'll leave out as it is best when you read it as a surprise, to get the full effect. Toby is called in for help, well not called and asked, more called and demanded. Toby has to work with Juliette. Ha ha ha! If you've read Whiskey Sour, with three short stories, you would laugh too. These two don't *really* get along, but here they get the job gets shot somewhere and the other stabbed, by the receiver of the bullet wound. ;D They are such a pair, and you get the feel for the relationship they have. LOL! And of course we have all our regulars; Nicolette, Ryann, Ellie, Peri, and several others we came across'll just have to read to see how.

I have to say, Skyla is such a powerful writer by pulling me into the main characters mind, that I keep siding with that character and their view and overflowing feelings. But I want to know the others thoughts in the situation. When I stop and sit back to take a breather and think, I wonder on the others' perspective and the feeling of... hope? lingers there, or at least I hope so. Then back into the book again and I'm pulled back to the main characters side when reading again. She's such a talented author that, not only did Zara leave me with battered bruised eyes, but a bruised heart as well. I LOVE IT! That is a book to hit me hard, and keep running.

Non-stop! High speed car chases! With guns. Fighting, knives, bullets flying, magic whipping. Then we have love. Will love win out over all? Who's the love for? That will keep you guessing as there are several potential couples here.

Fated is the short story in the back of this book. Now I'm not going to mention the name of the character as it might spoil the surprise for you...

She knows right away, half hour after actually, that she is pregnant. She is NOT happy. After leaving the doctors office she is approached in the subway, when everyone else is frozen, by a man who claims no harm to her but wants to keep her from...harm to come. And maybe if she is strong enough, join his magic society.

We get to see a few distorted truths come to light here. She is one to use enough of a truth and twist it so slightly to make things work the way she wants them. But she is an amazing character to watch, and love as you hate her. This story definitely sheds new light on a character and her motives along with some of her thinking process. It also takes you back to book one, and answers a few questions we would only get from a different view.

I LOVE this series, its absolutely great. If you love a real kick ass heroine with a fantastic attitude and a heart deep down, you will love Zara. I can relate well to her as I am sure others can too. Not the vampire part but the attitude, I know someone a lot like her. This series has it all. I want more Zara and Nate!! You have to write more with them and I will buy lots of books to help out so sales will be good!!! Please! Please! Please!
