"You will find yourself swept away to another time and place"

Brenna Terrell is half gyspy, half English woman. Her mother died leaving her to be brought up by her English father who believes in none of the gyspy nonsense her mother tried to tell her about. After losing her father also, she moved with her uncle, aunt and their daughter to Roanoke Island. The moment she set foot on the island she knew something wasn't right.

Tarian is a "savage" who hunts exactly what it is that Brenna senses. Death walkers, or vampires as the English call them have become a problem on Roanoke, along with other horrors. He is a gifted "monster hunter" who is following what the Spirts have promised him. His destiny is bound to the Raven.

Brenna and Tarian are very sexual and sexy characters. They argue alot because of not understanding each other (like most men and women) but can be very tender and loving also.

This story is enthralling. You will find yourself swept into another time and place before you even know it. There is a lot of information as to what is going on in the story that comes quickly, followed by action. It makes for a moderately paced book that flows back and forth between Tarian, Brenna, and the community that she has come to love.
