Overview

Alternative cover version!

Wrenched from his ordinary life by a violent madman, and turned vampire against his will, Jayson Wallace finds himself in a world where vampires and donors create Gates between quantum realities, and live in a peaceful, complex society with their shapeshifter allies. Full of magic and wonder, it's a dream come true... but not his dream. His sleep is haunted by blood and fear, and a terrifying voice that he can't shake from his memory. The Circle who rescued him do their best to help, but a terrible betrayal sets off a cascade of events that give them problems of their own to deal with.

Will Jay ever be able to recover from the trauma he endured, and learn to accept his new reality? A growing relationship with a beautiful young donor, and a strong friendship with a wolf-like rael-shaa help him cope, but he knows his struggle has only just begun. Somewhere, out there, the monster who changed him still runs free...

This book was surprisingly good (although I'm not sure why, as I've never read anything by this author prior to this and shouldn't have had any expectations), and introduced a lot of ideas about vampire's and their origins that I had never thought to consider. I particularly liked the concept that they were created to be vessels for the sorrows of humans. It was unacceptable to feed from random humans and to kill them was taboo. They were actually presented as mostly noble, and often "human." The plot was full of twists and turns, with a truly sadistic villain and a sympathetic and all-too -human hero. We never understand the motivations of the killer Malachi, but we know the thoughts and feelings of Jay, including all of his self-doubt and self-loathing over what he has become. We know that everyone who comes to know Jay tells him how strong and courageous he is, but he doesn't believe them. Aside from Jay, there are some other sympathetic and well-developed characters who have a profound impact on Jay's new "life." A rael-shaa, inaccurately but most easily defined as a werewolf, Ryan becomes Jay's best friend, in both his wolf and his human form. He often encourages Jay with wise statements like this one: I will be your friend, Worldwalker. Sorrow is like the rain, when the world mourns and all is muffled and dulled, and the hunting is not good. But rain brings life and cleanses and refreshes, so that in the time after, all is more vibrant, scents are clear, and sounds are sharper. I highly recommend this book for lovers of the paranormal. It did not end as a cliff-hanger, but there is still more to be told about Jay and his friends. Diane Fernstrom has gained a new fan in me.

It took me a while to finish this book. It is a well written, well thought out book which clearly showcases the writers talents. Personally it just moved way too slow for me but I can't slight the book for it. The storyline itself is very creative an unique, I am just used to more action spurring me from page to page. There is some action but the in between made me put the book down a lot. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
