Intensely good read I have been a fan of J.R. Rain's characters and books for a while now so I was a bit nervous when I saw that another writer was developing one of his characters. Eve Paludan did justice to Rand in the development and to J.R.'s Samantha in continuing her charcter. The first two chapters will hook you and prove that Eve has nailed the characters. This book has it all- humor, heartbreak, compassion, and suspense. We even meet a few historical characters (I won't spoil it for you)protrayed in a new light. Get the book!

When I first started reading this one, (it is connected to J.R. Rain's Vampire for Hire books) it was evident that although the style is different from Rain's books, the same flavor of story is there. It pushed my imagination a bit too far at first with the protagonist's character and the quick way his trauma was handled. I understand that this was necessary, but it made it feel rushed until about half-way into the book. It slowed down and became more interesting after that where I could get more into the story. The point of fiction is to get lost in the story, and there has to be an element of "that could happen if the world was really like that" to make it enjoyable. It was hard at first to get swept away that way in this book, but it got there. The next installment of the series was easier to get into as the preliminary introductions of the character's angst was done in this book. The bottom line is it is a companion series to Rain's Vampire series, and it is enjoyable to read and got better as you went.
