Rating: 5/5

Kane Malloy is a powerful, ancient vampire. He’s being sought by the Vampire control Unit for a horrendously long list of crimes against humanity eve though they have no witnesses and no one will testify against him. Caitlin is a member of the VCU and she’s been focussed on capturing Kane ever since she first saw his photograph on the VCU’s most wanted list. Caitlin has a seventh sense, she’s one of the most powerful shadow readers the VCU has ever had. She’s also grown up with a great awareness of the VCU as her father was one of their top operatives until he was mysteriously killed. Exactly seven years later, her Mum was similarly killed. Now it is almost another seven years later and Caitlin believes that whatever killed her parents will have her as their next target – she may only have days left to live and Kane may be the only being able to save her. Meeting proves dangerous for both of them as they are irresistibly attracted to each other but the death of her parents and that of his sister are sinister events from the past that may keep them apart….. Who will survive?

This is a great story, well written, fast paced, enthralling and intriguing as historical events are slowly revealed shining a light on deception, double dealers and demonstrating that it isn’t always those you believe to be enemies that you shouldn’t trust – unworthy friends may be even worse! This is the first book in the series and does end appropriately but also whets your appetite for future books – I can’t wait to find out what happens next! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys paranormal mysteries with plenty of action and bite.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too,

for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book is available from a variety of sources including

amazon.co.uk           amazon.com          barnes and noble

    Love this series! You should give Blood Roses a try- Caleb is my fav of Blackthorn’s lead males, and BR is his first book 😉

    I love this series and am totally hooked. There’s action, romance, and a great story line. The series gets better after each book. Never bored and always wanting more, I wait on pins and needles for the next book!

    I love this series, its different, gritty and dark – if you haven’t given it a go, you really must try it. It gives you all sorts of plot twists that you wouldn’t expect, it’s totally unpredictable.. cant wait for the next release, Blood Instinct, or as is otherwise known amongst us die hard fans – the JaskFest 🙂
