Fun quick UF romance read.
Months since Carpe Noctem's end with the battle with Santino the head hunter for the Acta Sanctorum and miraculously Alyssa and Lysander walked away with their heads on their shoulders. Alyssa in sow plagued with day mares of Santino coming for her along with the haunting memory of how close she was to death at Santino's blade. Alyssa has the feeling these day mares mean something... that Santino is alive and stronger than the clan believes, but not one truly believes her. Alyssa gets spotted by her enemy while feeding and runs. Not wanting to danger her clan, old habits kick in and Alyssa goes to a human packed place for safety, Cafe Copioh ~ her old hang-out. She is spotted by her best friend before she could leave, a rule broken by Alyssa that could cost her her live or others too when the new threat is unveiled.Was this review helpful?

I enjoyed this book more than the first book. Both the books have been quick easy reads for me and the pages turn so easily and quickly. We had Alyssa still being the strong headed girl she is. And not she didn't strike me as whiny as she did in the beginning of the first book. She has come a long way as a character for me. And I enjoy her with her mistakes and all now because she does have good intentions behind what she does, she just makes a few errors in quick judgement. Who doesn't? She has grown to be a stronger character mentally, and working on physically too.
We meet the Peregrinus clan in the first book, and I really liked them. And they are here in this book as well. They are a nice group of people to give more support, one way or the other. And we have Lysander again. Mmm, he is such a nice man for Alyssa. ;)
This book does have the romance aspect to it as well. Alyssa and Lysander is a couple working through their different ways, together ~ or trying even though he is the clan leader. And we have more action as Alyssa finds herself in trouble and their are fights happening.
The story takes a change to it with Santino and the new Frenzy Soldiers that they learn about. Interesting how things work that people just might need to work together...
I did enjoy this book, and would like to read the next in the series as well.
