"Fantastic supernatural romance"
In New Orleans, Lucius the Demoni thought he found his
soulmate that he has been seeking for centuries when he
met Jolie, but alas his "offspring" Alonso claimed her as
his (see the first book, DESCENDENTS OF DARKNESS:
ALONSO). Still he knows deep in his heart that she is out
there, but he must not lose hope and continues to search
for his beloved one though the doubts grow daily.
Tala loves being a werewolf, but is uncomfortable running
with the pack. Instead, she would rather read a romance
novel starring shapeshifters. She hopes that her own
loneliness will have the same happy ending.
Lucius sees a female wolf and is stunned that she is the
one. He comes to Tala and she feels the same attraction
as he does, but hesitates for her sibling exchanged blood
with a vampire only to lose her mind before dying. Tala
wants Lucius and he needs her for eternity, but she knows
the outcome of their pairing is not eternal. Lucius vows
to find a way or die because his soul cannot live without
The second Descendents of Darkness tale is an excellent
erotic vampire romance starring two delicious star-crossed
protagonists. The story line is character driven as
terrific Tala and luscious Lucius start so despondently
alone that the audience can picture them, especially the
vampire, as Mr. and Ms. Dyingly Sad. When they find each
other, diabolically clever Marianne tosses a curve ball at
these two critters by insuring a taboo love. This is a
great supernatural romance that is worth reading (as is
the previous tale).
