Book Two of the vampire saga Pact Arcanum; Revised 4th edition.

Warning: Contains strong language and non-explicit depictions of gay sexuality.

Steel and Shadow San Francisco, 2015.  A group of friends celebrating a windfall in their musical careers take a wrong turn down a deserted alleyway to find their path blocked by two creatures out of nightmare.  Surviving only through the arcane intervention of a cryptic savior, they find themselves thrust unwillingly into the center of a war of extermination between two mystical races.

The Gauntlet

Rory loved his best friend Takeshi for as long as he can remember, though he never had the courage to speak of it.  When Rory is captured, his soul hangs in the balance as the Nightwalkers delve into ancient magic to corrupt his spirit.  Takeshi attempts a desperate rescue, but is unprepared to face the enemy that waits in the depths of the vampire fortress.  In the end, his own damnation may be the key to Rory's salvation.

Night and Day

Nick was surprised to see Rory at a Christmas party so many years after the other musician disappeared from public life. Renewing their friendship, he remains completely unaware that Rory is not at all what he appears to be.  Nick's ignorance costs him dearly when Rory's enemies attack. To save Nick, Rory and his allies must find a way to triumph over the first and greatest of the vampire lords, before Nick's soul is twisted forever by the torments of the Prince of Nightmares.

This second book in the Pact Arcanum is a prequel to "Sunset," providing us a more in-depth look at many of the events that led to the events in that novel. We see the origination of the Armistice, the early days of Nick's career, his budding friendships and relationships that exist later in his life, his descent in the darkness of addiction and his friends' attempts to help him rise back up again. We also get a bit more of a look at some of the players in the Court of Shadows, the Nightwalkers. The Pact Arcanum is becoming a friend - the world and character-building that Arshad has put into this story is so amazing, I can't even explain properly. You have to read it - it is so many things, so much more than a gay sci-fi vampire story. I won't repeat the gushing from my review of "Sunset" - I can hope that you have read that review as well - but will say that this book is a worthy continuation of the series, and that it also comes with my highest recommendation.

This book serves as a prequel to the Pact Arcanum series, yet another well written book by Ahsanuddin. He writes Sunset with the same eloquence . Case in point, though it was a prequel and I knew how certain events were going to end, I was still enthralled and turning the pages in suspense for the outcome. I believe that only a gifted author can do that. While the action is less than Sunset, it is still a gripping and must read for all of you that enjoyed the first book as much as I did. I think that it was actually a brilliant move to make Sunset the first book of the series, throwing you into the action to bait you and get you hooked. This book will answer any questions you may have had and delves deeper into the relationships of all the characters and gives you more information on how exactly they came to meet. Another great read!
