The plot is what drew me into buying, especially after reading the sample, but we don't get much of that. Eden holds off on bonding with her daughter for fear the Coalition will track her. At the end we find out they know where she is, but we still don't get a bonding moment between mother and daughter. In the sample, she gets to the house, and except for two scenes, that's all we see. In one of those scenes, Eden isn't even present. Actually we only see her outside of the bedroom the one time she was outside and twice where she was in other rooms in the house. That was boring
There's no real progress with the Coalition. Someone comes after her and is defeated. The scene to do that takes few pages than most of the sex scenes. Then it's over. No battle. No major intelligence gathered.
I'm doing two stars because it just doesn't feel like a one star read, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Eden, granddaughter of a really awful, nasty old man, loves, betrays, saves and loves Deuce (silly shortening of Dusen Knight), the leader of the vampires. After all they both endure, saving themselves and their infant daughter, they are left, in bed, loving each other, but, hey, a lot more could have been expected of the story line and the concept. And, many neat, worthy heroes and heroines with stories that deserved telling.
This isn't as bad a cliff-hanger as Anne Rice left us with in The Mummy, but it is almost close.
I, for one, want more. Now.
Dusan's character was OK but he was decidedly chauvinistic, which is understandable since he's really old, but the opportunity to show his emotional growth was missed. He didn't seem to love Eden but rather was devoted to her because she was his mate. We didn't get the back story about when he met and courted Eden, apparently fell in love with her and recognized her as his mate.
This appears to be first in the series but the Others and Eden's grandfather's work were so poorly explained that it seemed there must be another book that preceded it. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's much like Feehan's Dark series, but nowhere near as good.
