Blurb: ONE NIGHT . . . ONE VIOLENT, SUPERNATURAL BATTLE . . .AND FIVE STORIES OF MEN WHOSE LIVES
WILL BE CHANGED BY IT.
Aiden Rowan has made a choice he wishes he could have back. As a human Guardian for The Brethren, he agreed to be part of a former Elder’s super-soldier experiments involving vampire blood transfusions. His reasons for doing so were close to his heart, but the results are costing him his humanity and changing him into the very creature he wanted to defeat—a vampire. Just when he thinks he’s accepted his fate, a woman enters his life with the promise that she can help. From the moment Aiden lays eyes on Lily Abbott he feels lost in a good way—a human way. But can he trust himself now that he’s changing? Refusing to allow the darkness growing inside him to ever hurt her, he chooses to leave Lily with the intention never to return.
Lily has many secrets, and some she must keep from the man she has come to The Oracle to save. What she didn’t expect was to care deeply for Aiden, or be so affected when he refuses her help and leaves abruptly. But when she’s attacked one night by another fellow super soldier, Aiden returns as quickly as he left. Once the two are reunited, the pair have an almost combustible chemistry, leading Aiden to question what brought Lily to The Oracle and into his life in the first place.
WILL AIDEN AND LILY FIND LOVE TOGETHER, OR WILL HIS CHANGE AND HER SECRETS DRIVE THEM APART FOR GOOD?
Review: I have to admit when I first started reading this new book I was a little confused on the time frame of this story. I do remember books 1 and 2 very well since they are some of my favorite books. Then it hit me that they are all going on at the same time but with different main characters in each book. This great addition to the series is about Aiden. A human who had vampire blood given to him by the corrupted previous leader to the organization that is protecting humans from all things that go bump in the night. Aiden, who had his own personal reasons for agreeing to be part of the experiment, is one of the only two men left that were injected with the dangerous vampire blood. Slowly turning into a vampire, Aiden has to depend on the doctors and Lily, a woman helping to track the changes in the men. Secrets, lies, lust and love complete the fantastic book that has a few twists and turns that I never saw coming.
