Part of the 'Dark Ones' series
on 28 April 2009
Pia Thomason is on a singles tour of Europe to console herself as she approaches her fortieth birthday. During a visit to Iceland she finds herself in the middle of some very strange events, including a woman being murdered in Pia's hotel bathroom, someone who wants to marry her, reports of a strange cult and more. When Pia finds herself given an unexpected responsibility she has to try to work out what's going on - with the help of two rather handsome men at the same time. But as she begins to learn that there are Vampires around, as well as those trying to kill them, she has to choose her side and to fulfil her unexpected new role.
There's plenty going on in this book which meant at times that it was difficult to follow. The author doesn't spend much time on characterisation, she just moves the plot along in leaps and bounds. The setting of Iceland had great potential which was sadly not very well realised and I didn't get much of a sense of that country through the book. This book is part of a series which became apparent at the end when not every aspect of the plot was wrapped up. However the book was enjoyable and Pia, despite being exasperating at times, was also an appealing heroine at others.
