"I loved this story!"
Helen has been left to care and guard an ancient Aztec
stone when her father died. Being an antique dealer Helen
saw a lot of different things come through that most people
wouldn't think much of, but being in the line of work she
is allows her to see things others think are nothing, but
really are gems. As if life isn't busy enough for Helen she
goes off and falls for an ancient Roman emperor that is
more than what he seems, a vampire. More than anything he
would like to become human again, can he?
Constantine has been searching for the right stone that
would give him the powers to make what he wants more than
anything come true, to become human again. But when Helen
makes a deal with one of Constantine's enemies the two
realize the danger they and the world are in by this
person's hands. All Constantine has wanted for a long time
is to become human again, but he never thought he would
find someone like Helen and fall in love with her. She has
opened his eyes to things he never thought he would feel
again. But Helen isn't so sure about vampires. Can the two
of them with the help of some friends find the twelve
ancient artifacts that had been given to different men when
they were cursed? Their goal is to find these artifacts and
hide them away where they can never be brought together
because if they are the world as they know it will be hell.
Can Constantine get what he thought he wanted more than
anything, to become human? Will the two of them be able to
have a future together? Can Helen look past Constantine
being a vampire if he isn't cured and made human again?
No matter what Alicia Sparks writes, it's a story with a
huge bang. I loved this story with its fast paced storyline
that kept me intrigued from the first page. Who wouldn't
want a big bad man like Constantine, who is a wounded soul
that only wants to become human again? Then you have Helen
that can't help being drawn to this man even with him being
a vampire. I can't say enough about this story.
