I adored this story. The minute you start reading this story it seems to engulf you and doesn’t let you go until the end. I loved that you got to read about Julian’s life before he was a vampire also. I some spots this is absolutely heartbreaking. This story has a lot of suspense, action and of course drama. I felt bad that Julian was so torn between his love for Lia and his loyalty to his coven and promise to his maker. I loved the plot the whole story actual and a bit of a different spin on a vampire story. This is a great read. I loved the characters and the ups and downs of this story and I highly recommend.
