I’m not really sure how I feel about this book, I think I was a bit indifferent toward it. Don’t get me wrong, having a human converted by a vampire was rather interesting to read about and it certainly did further the major plot but I didn’t really feel anything for the major characters.
I want to say that Destiny was being much too stubborn about denying the existence of Carpathians but I can understand why she would.
It was the side characters that kept me reading most of the way until it really focused on the mystery. I think it was a great little filler but it was just a little anti-climactic near the end of it, I kind of wanted more. Like maybe a sneak peek at what the doctor did in his clinic and how he did it.
The vampire finding his lifemate was a plot twist I never saw coming the first time I read this, though I feel like I should have noticed it because the author kept talking about how this little old lady had special psychic abilities. Though I know this doesn’t happen again, I really would love to see more of it, I feel like it should happen more often, especially if a vampire is drawn to a place.
Even though her book isn’t for a good while, MaryAnn just seems more likeable in this book, I remember being excited when I got her story but I also remember being disappointed in it. I’ll write more about it when I get to Dark Possession.
Even though I know Jaxon is trying to become a hunter in Dark Guardian, I haven’t been able to re-read it but, I think it’s a good thing that there’s a female hunter, one that’s actually been trained since childhood to fight vampires.
Thank you for reading my review.
