"a wonderfully, vivid world"
It is the Year 2069, and Werewolves and Vampires hate each
other, but they are not each other's worst nightmare any
more; many want to work together. The human race is
declining and the human world has become a "Shadow Zone".
People go into the shadow zone and are never seen again.
Julia was sent by her people, the Werewolves, to gather
information about whether the humans have found the key to
immortality so that their people will live as long as
vampires. But on her way to getting this information she
is rescued by a Human, or a man that she thinks is a
human. He saves her and they connect, he makes her feel
alive. They feel such attraction for each other that they
give into it. After making love they are caught and do
battle with the ones that have been sent to capture Julia.
The next thing she remembers is walking home and Rick, one
of the oldest vampires alive, meets her, yet she doesn't
recognize him. Will Rick help her to remember what had
happened before her people come to get her and take her
home? Will she remember in time that Rick was the man that
made her feel so loved, and he is the one that is trying
to keep her alive? Is the immortality they seek all that
Isabella Jordan has written one of the best stories I have
read of vampires and werewolves in a long time. I didn't
want it to end, I was involved. I cannot wait for the next
book in this "Wonderfully, Vivid" world to see where the
author goes with this well written story. I loved the way
that Rick takes Julia in hand to show her that losing
control is a good thing, if it is to the right person.
This story is one I will re-read many, many times.

War, disease, and global warming have caused a significant decline of the human race. The human world has become a Shadow Zone where people mysteriously disappear and infertility among those of age to have children has grown at an alarming rate.
The vampire race monitors the human world whose decline is forcing them to find other ways to obtain the blood they need. They also watch the werewolves who consider the vampires a threat.
The werewolves have sent Julia out into the Shadow Zone in search of the key to immortality which both sides believe the humans have unearthed. Rick is a centuries-old vampire sent by the council of elders to intercept her before she can discover these secrets and take them back to her kind.
Rick’s been watching the fierce female warrior for a long time. No female has been able to challenge or seduce him in ages. Yet Julia is one luscious little werewolf who definitely makes him feel alive and more than anything, he wants to make her his. No matter how he does it…
