“This was phenomenal! I could hardly stand to put the book down to eat or work or sleep. I have a weakness for a male character that is not afraid to explore his sexuality. I read this too fast. Can't wait to start the next one.”
“I could not put this book down. It was extremely well written. The characters are complex and well developed, pulling you in. Jex is able to portray the emotions and emotional growth of her characters beautifully.”
“Oh my. This book blew me away. It's sexy, violent, passionate, and utterly captivating. I loved, loved, loved the relationship and dynamic between Tarrick and Matthew. The world-building was done perfectly, with enough details to make it understandable but not so much we drown in descriptions. The mystery of who and what Matthew is is slowly being unraveled and done really well. Cannot wait to read the next book!”
“Jex Lane is on par with the likes of Laurell K. Hamilton, Anne Rice, Charlaine Harris, and Tanya Huff. And let me say that I really enjoy Lane's take on vampirism and the rules that govern them in her universe. I cannot wait to see what is in store for Matthew, and I kind of wouldn’t mind meeting him in a dark alley.”
Matthew Callahan has spent seven years struggling against the insatiable hunger for blood consuming him. Unable to stop the vampire inside from preying on humans, he keeps himself confined to a lonely existence.
Everything changes the night he is lured into a trap and taken prisoner by High Lord General Tarrick—a seductive incubus who feeds off sexual energy. Forced into the middle of a war between vampires and incubi, Matthew is used as a weapon against his own kind. Although he's desperate for freedom, he is unable to deny the burning desire drawing him to the incubus general he now calls Master.
