    Fast Forward 25 Years

    In this follow up to her book Seducing the Vampire, we are transported nearly 25 mortal years into the future and Rhys and Viviane's children are all grown up. Trystan, who is full blooded werewolf, has been raised in the mortal realm. Vaillant, who is full-blooded vampire, has been raised in Faery. Vail was taken as Rhys' boon to Cressida, Mistress of Winter's Edge, for taming his werewolf (Rhys is half vampire, half werewolf). When Vail grew up, Cressida was disappointed that he was full-blooded vampire. She was hoping he would be a half-breed like his father and so he was raised to feel unwanted.

    Vail is now living in the mortal realm after being banished from Faery for insubordination to Zett, Lord of Midsummer Dark. There is no love lost between him and his brother, Trystan, and they usually rub each other the wrong way. Rhys just wants them to get along (since he and his brother Constantine never did) and for Vail to accept his vampire side. He also wants him to see his mother who has still been dealing with her insanity from being imprisoned in a tomb. Because he has lived in Faery for his entire life, he has lived on faery ichor instead of blood. So let's just say he is a drug addict who is now trying to "maintain" in the real world. Vail wants to know where to find his father, Constantine de Salignac, and for that information he must find Lyric Santiago who has been supposedly kidnapped. Rhys wants him to find her and return her to her mother and the dress returned to him and he will then give him the information he wants.

    Lyric is the daughter of Charish Santiago, matriarch to an old-school vampire mafia made up of thieves, cutthroats and murderers. Charish had her son Leo steal a Faery gown from Hawkes Associates that is coveted by the Faery Seelie court and she is going to hand it over to Zett, who has asked Lyric to personally hand it over. Lyric knows why he wants her to and she is not going to do it so she fakes her own kidnapping. When she first meets Vail they have a stand-off where of course Vail wins and they are instantly attracted to each other. Lyric likes the bad boys and Vail feels he is able to share his secrets with her.

    There was a lot that could have been better in this book. I was a little disappointed but still thought that it was an okay read. I felt that Vail and Lyric's relationship was forced. I think the main problem I had was the beginning. I jumps right to nearly 25 years after the first book and I was slightly confused until a ways in where it explains what happened and that set up for what the rest of the book was like, explanation after explanation. Mostly it was between Vail and Lyric explaining their lives to each other in great detail. It just didn't have enough now action for me.

    With that being said, I still like Michele Hauf and will most likely read her next book. This one just fell flat for me.
