Overview

After narrowly escaping Rome with her mortality, vampire hunter Lady Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacey returns to London—where not even sunrise can stop a vampire's carnage. Not only is Victoria unable to detect the vampire with her heightened senses, but she's being framed as the prime suspect behind the killings.

Meanwhile, the legacy of a vampire's touch has left his blood boiling in her veins and forces her to fight evil on two fronts—against the new breed of undead threatening London and the darkness within herself….

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Gleason's weak fourth Gardella Vampire novel (after 2008's The Bleeding Dusk) focuses on romance to the detriment of action. After being bitten by master vampire Beauregard, vampire hunter Victoria Gardella Grantworth faces an uncertain fate. As the vampire blood in her system fights against her natural goodness, she becomes more selfish and cruel. Soon local law enforcement is blaming her for mysterious daytime vampire attacks. She's also torn (as before) between two men: Sebastian, Beauregard's descendant, who has now embraced his role as a vampire-hunting Venator, and former Venator Max, who gave up his powers to break the hold of vampire queen Lilith. The passionate love triangle can't quite carry the story, which lacks a strong plot and has no real sense of danger or tension. Readers more interested in Victoria's vampire hunting skills than in her romances will miss the excitement of earlier books. (Aug.)

This is the 4th book in the series and I wasn't disappointed at all. Victoria has recovered from being bitten by a seductive vampire and worst of her she bit him back and was almost turned. She is back home in London and there are vampire attacks taking place in the daytime, Victoria is attempting to solve this mystery along with Sebastian. Max is back and it seems her heart is still divided between the two men. Lilith the Vampire Queen is back in this book and Victoria comes face to face with her again and Lilith is still after Max, the Vampire Slayer, who she held in her thrall for many years. I found at the end of the book, that I am looking forward to the next book in the series
