Laura Dantonville is shocked to learn her strange genetic mutation,
is linked to a dark family secret—a centuries-old curse that turned her Roman ancestor into a vampire. Now that she has come of age, she is the key to breaking that curse. But she’s also the prey of rogue vampires who inhabit the city’s frightening and violent underworld, as her blood gives them the ability to daywalk. For her protection she’s assigned a guardian—the handsome, sexy and dangerous Alec Munro.

Former military doctor and current leader of the Brethren, Alec Munro has no intention of being responsible for Laura. After all, it was her damned family who was responsible for his untimely death and subsequent transformation. He owes them nothing, yet he also knows his own fated role in breaking the curse, and the unthinkable consequences should he not accept.

To the Brethren, the ending of the curse spells disaster. Among a powerful few malice grows…

My Review…

This book was extremely well written. Tima deftly wove the history of the characters throughout the book. As a reader, I was immersed in the background. I found myself on the edge of my seat when reading how the main characters became inducted into the vampire world. The history brought a edge of intimacy between the reader and the characters. In knowing how they manifested into their now, it made me as a reader more invested into their current story.
This story gave readers a new facet to the vampire story. Tima created her own rules and regulations for the characters. I will admit some did not like the restraint put upon them and flexed their super natural powers to get out of Tima’s grasp. Tima did a fantastic job keeping her characters in check, but allowing them to grow into someone the readers connected with. I am very excited to read the next installment of this series.
