Overview

An opulent Carnivale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn for book critic Jordan Riley. As festivity turns into frenzy, she is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a wolf. But was what she witnessed really just the evening's entertainment—or something far more sinister?

From a deconsecrated church in Venice to a secret society in new Orleans, Jordan is led on a nightmare journey to the razor's edge of reality. Her mysterious savior is always a shadow behind her. A man whose closeness will both torment and tantalize her as darkness falls—and an eternal hunger threatens to consume her.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What are vampires? According to Drake's fun, fanciful read, they're just another group of emotionally challenged creatures in need of a good 12-step program. In the third volume of her vampire series, Drake (Seize the Dawn) introduces Ragnor Wulfson, a 1,000-year-old vampire, formerly a Viking, who is now an antiques dealer and a vampire enforcer. When Ragnor learns that his former lover Nari, the Contessa della Trieste and a naughty vampire, is throwing a masquerade ball during Venice's Carnevale festival, he travels to the city to find out what fiendish diversions she's planned. At the party, Nari and her minions feast upon the guests, but only Jordan Riley, a well-known book critic from the States, witnesses the carnage. Despite Nari's assurances that the macabre scene was part of the evening's dramatics, Jordan is convinced that what she saw was real, but the only person who believes her is Ragnor, a mysterious hulk of a man who believes she's in danger. While the two hunt down the ancient evil that appears to be stalking Jordan, they explore their mutual passion for each other. Drake's descriptions of Venice are lush, and her colorful cast of characters will engage. Those who can overlook the novel's far-fetched plot and sensational finish will be heartily entertained by this outrageous comic book romp. (Sept.) Forecast: Print advertising in USA Today and Fangoria will entice fans of TV's favorite Vampire Slayer to check out the newest installment in Drake's series.

I was so happy to see a Heather Graham book I had yet to read. Imagine my dismay to find the typo's were unbelievable! I gave up and put it in the read shelf and didn't finish. if typo's botther you - tide instead of title; 1's instead of exclamation points; as examples- don't even try this book. If it was a print book, I'd have taken it back and gotten my money back. As it is, in a nook book, it just sits unfinished. Sentences didn't even make sense in many cases. where are the editors? Have they gone on strike or something? I hope my next Heather Graham book is better.

I love every book by Heather Graham / Shannon Drake but someone is not checking the spelling or punctuation in your online books very well.

I like the overall storyline and the author's description of Carnivale season in Venice. She gets too bogged down, however, in conversations between our main character, Jordan Riley, and the costume shop owner and her worker. These conversations and latte drinking time don't really move the story along. And I was almost halfway through the book before there was passages of passion and sensuality between Jordan Riley and the male love interest. HALFWAY THROUGH THE BOOK! ALSO, it took forever for the author to reveal whether I was reading a book about vampires or about werewolves! Action got better when Jordan flew back to the US to meet with an author of a book she's reviewing. Overall, this was a better than average book. I wasn't convinced of the chemistry between this 1000-year old vampire and the American Jordan Riley.

Way too many editing issues to make it enjoyable as an ebook.

The story is good, sometimes a little hard to follow. I had read there were typos and normally I can figure out what they mean. However there were a couple of times I just had to skip and go on.

I really enjoy this author but this book was hard to follow as I kept getting distracted by all spelling errors & dialogue disruption. Should have been a freebie.

Lots of misspelled words making it a hard read. Way to wordy, could cut 200 pages and helped the story line.
