Julian Frost, whose life is already dark due to the murder of his parents and the loss of his sister, believes he has found his salvation in his new love, a vampire named Violet. But fate has more troubles in store for him, and he must decide if he is to let her make him into a vampire, so that he might face the vampire hunter that menaces her, and perhaps finally take revenge on his parents' killer.
There is a lot going on in this book, and it's to the author's credit that it never becomes confusing and that none of the scenes are gratuitous. Julian is a compelling character, and his struggles were well presented. The one knock I have against this book is that it feels like it zips along too quickly--there are enough story developments along the way for a novel twice this length--and secondary characters and overall atmosphere take a few hits along the way. But what's there is entertaining, and should be enjoyed by fans of non-sparkly vampires.
