Overview

In Italy, a powerful vampire is amassing the power to control the souls of the dead. Lady Victoria Gardella de Lacy-a vampire slayer for just over a year-races across Europe to stop what could be the most deadly army the Gardellas have ever faced. She is accompanied by Sebastian Vioget, a man as tempting as he is untrustworthy.

But when Victoria discovers that she has been betrayed by one of her most trusted allies, the truth will challenge all her powers as a Venator-and as a woman.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Gleason's latest, she returns to the budding career of Venator Victoria Gardella, a Buffyesque vampire hunter living in an Austen-style Regency world. Having spent the last year mourning the death of her husband, slain at the hands of the vampire queen, Lilith, Victoria is desperate for revenge. Before long, she stumbles on a vampiric plot to seize Akvan's Obelisk, a powerful artifact that will grant its controller the power to command legions of the dead. In order to foil the plan, Victoria crisscrosses Europe, teaming up with a handsome stranger along the way. A fast-paced carnival ride of a book, the sophomore series entry (after The Rest Falls Away) hits the ground running without any introduction to Gleason's world; for those new to the series, this volume will probably prove confusing. Those who've read the first title, however, won't be disappointed: Victoria is a more determined, fleshed-out character, having grown wiser, sadder and more ambiguous about the morality of her mission. Her world, too, expands significantly in this adventure. A tense plot line and refreshingly diverse supporting characters complete the package, giving series fans plenty to sink their teeth into�and plenty more to look forward to. (June)

I won't say too much about the plot because I don't want to give anything away, but I will say this one got me right in the gut and the heart! The choices, the sacrifices--oh my! Sebastian is still smouldering, Max is enigmatic, and Victoria is headstrong as ever. I do wish she would stop rushing into situations by herself, thinking she can take care of it all. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series and seeing Victoria really come into her own as a Venator, with or without the help of the men in her life.

This book has everything. Vampires, vampires, vampires. What more could you want? A great plot, action, more action and vampires.

The Gardella chronicles continues at a brisk pace with this second book. While the setting moves to Italy the characters I enjoyed from the first are all present with some exiting additions. Victoria continues to develop and faces some pretty shocking revelations as the book moves to its conclusion. Really enjoyable read.

I am a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire slayer, so when I read that this series was brought to life because of her I had to get it. I love the double life aspect. She is a strong woman but not to tough or hard core. I truly enjoyed this book and have recently finished the second. I plan on reading the whole series.

This book was hard to put down. I found myself reading long into the night to find out what happens next! You will not be disappointed. I cant wait to read the next book in the series.

The first book was great. In this book still full of action, the author makes me fall in love with Sebastian but...someone else is also in the back of my head, makes my wonder!!! Victoria is on her way to learn to become a leader she is meant to be...maybe! Excellent series people, a should read kind of book! highly recommend it.
