Overview

Vampire lovers Mia and Kurt are on the run from their Forbidden Science rival Gaius Lupus.

After narrowly escaping the implosion of Genpath Laboratories, Immortyls Mia Disantini and Kurt Eisen go into hiding in a place they think is safe. All too soon they are discovered, and Kurt is captured by Gaius.
When he's rescued with the aid of feral child and teen vampires known as sewer rats, Mia witnesses first-hand the charismatic spell her lover casts over these would-be revolutionaries, who vow to join Kurt in his mission to bring down the house of Gaius.
Meeting obstacles to government funding to support the research that will one day allow them to walk in the sun, Kurt builds his forces. Mia navigates the minefield of rat politics, where she is distressed to be shunted into the background; viewed merely as an overly ambitious concubine who stands between the beloved "Loki" and his followers. One in particular-the oddly timid but beautiful Arturo, who threatens to sever the deep bond between Mia and Kurt.
Will Kurt and Mia defeat Gaius's brutal attacks and realize their dream of a cure for their condition? Will the new order they establish survive betrayal from within? And...will their love adapt to the challenge of a third partner?

    Great Series sequel

    A fun yet thought-provoking read. The characters are well-drawn and mature, a refreshing departure. If you're looking for something new in the vampire genre this series is a winner. A science fiction twist makes these vampires flesh and blood, but they are not namby pamby. Lots of action and thrills, but a healthy dose of dark humor and romance of the grown-up variety. Kurt Eisen is an interesting and complex hero, a good match for Mia, the strong-minded heroine.

    Another great work by Denise Verrico

    Denise Verrico has continued the saga of Mia and Kurt in Twilight of the Gods. Once again she has taken the meaning of vampire to a whole new realm. Kurt and Mia in the beginning are living in secret to keep from being found. They still find ways even in the toughest of circumstances to love one another with passion and devotion. However, their world was to come crashing down upon them once again with Kurt being kidnapped by the Wolf and his dogs. Now, Mia has to contact Phillip, an old friend, to assist her into getting the love of her life away from Gaius before he tortures him until dead. Will Kurt be the same Kurt before he was taken by Gaius and his dogs? Will he still love Mia with undying love or has someone else entered his life and now Mia will have to share his affections? What horrors did Gaius inflict on Kurt, that Mia will see when she takes in Kurt's blood vision during lovemaking? And will Mia blame herself for it all? For now the answer to these questions will have to wait.....because right now, they have a war to fight! The author out did herself keeping the reader in suspense, not knowing what was going to happen to the characters next. I found this book to be a definite page turner, not able to put it down until I was finished with it! I was very pleased that this book picked up where the last one left off at. I did not have to look in the book Cara Mia to refresh my memory. I totally fell in love with the characters in Twilight of the Gods. The author gave them a lot more life and meaning in this second in the series. I found that I couldn't foresee what was going to happen on the next page, or next chapter, or even the end. I experienced happiness, anger, and sadness with the turn of events, from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased this is not the last in the series. I would highly recommend this book. I give it five stars. Reviewed by Nora Barteau

    Excellent Sequel!

    Starting off just after we left off in Cara Mia (book one), Mia and Kurt are in hiding having escaped from Genpath Laboratories. We see a return of some characters we met in book one, Mia and Kurt obviously, as well as Gaius and Leisha, and a few more. The war is still going on. Gaius wants to create Weakness-free Imortyls and Mia and Kurt have to work toward stopping Gaius and finding their elusive cure.

    While this is all happening, I felt the bulk of the story surrounded the strained relationship between Kurt and Mia. In the previous book there was an utter love and devotion between the two. In this book it seems, that though there is still true love there, the honeymoon phase has definitely ended.

    After a fast paced intro, Kurt is captured and taken by Gaius. Mia has to turn to the rats (vagabond street-rat vampires) to rescue him.

    During his capture and rescue, Kurt bonds with Arturo, who is very mentally child-like. Once safe, Kurt takes a place as leader of the rats, being dubbed Loki. Arturo stands at his side as mate. On top of being shoved to the side, Mia is treated as if she is no better than a hooker, Kurt's sexual plaything. The rats have absolutely no respect for her. Kurt, by the way still loves Mia just as much as ever, but he cannot leave Arturo which puts serious strain on his relationship with Mia. Think about it, would you agree to share your boyfriend with another man?

    Obviously Mia has quite a bit to overcome in this book and it's quite interesting to see her character further develop and deal with these hardships.

    This book is very emotional charged and a fast paced read. A great companion and just as enjoyable as her first offering, Cara Mia.

    Book 2 is just as good as the first

    4.5 Stars.

    Twilight of the Gods starts off pretty much where the first book, Cara Mia, ended. Mia and Kurt have escaped and are still searching for a cure. However, they soon find that they are being pursued and that their freedom may not last.

    An interesting twist is the introduction of a group of young vampires calling themselves rats. Without giving too much away of the plot, there is a twist in the dynamics between the independent Mia and her lover Kurt which pushes their relationship to the limits. Both characters grow and develop, although some of their personality changes are not for the better. It is the emotional development and relationship between Kurt and Mia which makes this book special.

    Also, it was very enjoyable to watch Mia's character become mentally and emotionally stronger and continue to fight for her independence. She proves to be an excellent character; not too perfect as many are portrayed, but with realistic faults tempered by her many strengths.

    This book is fast-paced, well-written, and a wonderful encompassing read.
