This book begins with Michael Wyndham sending his cousin Rachel to check on Vampire queen Betsy. While Rachel is none to happy about relocating she is willing to do it for her cousin. Once she is there she meets Edward and the sparks fly from their very first meeting. The only problem is that Edward lives with a vampire slayer and when he sees Rachel at Betsy’s mansion he is more than angry. If that isn’t enough add in the fact that someone is out to cause problems between the vampires and the wolves by committing murders. Somehow they must all work together and figure things out before it is too late.
I enjoyed this book. Once again this author does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. Rachel is a great character; she is a strong and feisty woman who can hold her own. Edward must learn to deal with things in his own way and finds love in the process. I loved watching the relationship bloom between the two and seeing Rachel’s reaction at the end of the book shows just how much she cares for Edward. The two must not only try and figure out their feelings for each other but Rachel must find out who is behind the murders. Just like all the other books by this author every character has a part to play, nobody is left out. As we watch Rachel and Edward we also get to visit with old friends like Betsy and the gang. I was a little surprised to see Marc as a zombie but was glad he still was his old self.
This book is full of the humor that we have come to expect in this series. I found myself laughing out loud at times and enjoying much of the banter between everyone in this story. I am enjoying the Wyndham wolves just as much as Betsy and her gang and cannot wait for the next book to come out.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
