According to ancient
prophecy, there's only one chance to avert the complete annihilation of
the Undead. Twins James William and Brigit Poe, part human, part
vampire, believe that they "are" that chance. In truth, the key lies
with the reclusive--and mortal--scholar Lucy Lanfair.As Armageddon
approaches, antivampire sentiment fuels a war neither side can win,
driving James to abandon his moral code and draw Lucy into a deadly
battle she wants no part of.
But Lucy soon realizes that she
holds this powerful immortal's soul in her hands and that it's her
destiny not only to stop a war but to save him from his inner darkness.
If she fails, his race will die--and so will her heart. Is the power of
love strong enough to save the world? (Goodreads Synopsis)
This was a book that left me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I liked the premise and the two main characters, but on the other hand, their relationship never quite came together for me and the pacing didn't quite work - sometimes too fast, sometimes too slow.
Still, the book ended on an interesting cliff-hanger and I wouldn't mind reading on to find out what happens next. Fans of Shayne will no doubt be happy with this new offering anyway.
