Library JournalSonia Agostino’s fascination with myths and folklore has led her around the world to conduct research on paranormal creatures like werewolves, shape-shifters, and vampires, and she, along with members of her large Greek family, offers aid to these otherworldly beings through a secret society. Throughout her travels, Sonia has had little opportunity to encounter the creature who fascinates her most—the vampire. Sonia’s intuition leads her to mysterious Chicago nightclub owner Damek, and she immediately sets out to confirm her suspicions that he is a vampire. Yet that proves more difficult than she anticipates. When Damek first sets eyes on Sonia, he knows that she spells trouble, and it is not only because of the vampire hunters who have been tracking her every move. As a powerful vampire, Damek is capable of handling anything that comes along, but he is concerned about keeping Sonia out of harm’s way because he knows that Sonia has the potential to make him feel things he has not felt in decades and can change him forever.
Verdict In this latest “Legacy” title, Walters (Alexandra’s Legacy) continues to feature tight-knit werewolf families and shifts slightly to spotlight a vampire as hero. The erotic elements are no less present, and while the romance between Sonia and Damek is touching, the action sequences wrap much too quickly and the plot drags on a little too long thereafter. Still, fans of the genre might be interested in exploring earlier books in the series.—Natasha Grant, New York(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
