REVIEW

"I love this Series!"

This is the third Guardian's of the Night book in Jenna Black's vampire paranormal romance series.

At the end of the last book "Secrets in the Shadows", Gabriel saves Jezebel by changing her and making her his fledging. He plans to use her as a pawn in his devious plan to end the Guardians and kill his father. It is only fitting since Eli tried to kill him centuries ago for being a born vampire. It was a well thought out plan and it should have worked, but there were a few little snags—His mother and his sworn enemy arrive in town determined to finish the job Eli started centuries ago. If this wasn't bad enough, his fledging has somehow managed to wiggle her way into his heart.

Jezebel was damaged long before she was brutally abused and left for dead from multiple vampire bites. Jezebel recognizes a kindred spirit in Gabriel—a wounded soul. She understands how it feels to be condemned because of circumstances that are beyond one's control. She sees Gabriel for who he truly is. Though he may not be a saint, he also isn't the monster he pretends to be. They share a tangible bond in more ways than one.

Ms. Black never disappoints. Gabriel is powerful, seemingly evil at times, but there are those simple acts of kindness that prove he is harboring a dark secret. Jezebel is his match and the perfect person to help Gabriel face his demons. The transition is cleverly done until the shadows that hide Gabriel's true character inside are revealed. You don't want to miss any of this series: Watchers in the Night and Secrets in the Shadows. Though each of these books can stand alone, I believe you will appreciate Gabriel's transition and redemption if you at least start with Secrets in the Shadows.

SUMMARY

The baddest of the bad boys…

Gabriel is a five hundred year old vampire with the soul of a Killer. He has defeated his mother in a battle for the territory of Baltimore, and vowed to take vengeance upon his father, the Master of Philadelphia, for a centuries-old betrayal.

Jezebel, Gabriel's new fledgling, is a soul as scarred as his own, yet Gabriel finds that the ice around his heart slowly melts when she is near. But one of Gabriel's ancient enemies has targeted her--and if Gabriel wants to save her, he will have to abandon his plans for revenge and join forces with his father.

The question is not whether or not Gabriel can redeem himself from his past, but whether he can ever forgive himself…
