Anne Pearce just wants to be left alone to live a normal
life. She has been very successful as an artist and is
dating a terrific guy. Beyond this life Anne has a huge
secret; her past stretches back over two centuries and a
zealous religious order that has chased her for
generations. That all changes when Anne meets a woman who
offers her a chance to end the confrontations once and for
all. Anne finds herself torn between the normal life she
has been cultivating and the supernatural life she has been
trying so hard to avoid.
The storyline was very developed, although sometimes
inconsistent for this reader, even when it was necessary
for the story. At the end it wasn't totally resolved but
set the stage for other books. I think anyone who likes
vampires would enjoy this story. It portrays vampires in a
different than the usual bloodsucker fare. This is a very
entertaining piece of work. I came to care very much what
happened to Anne. I could relate to Anne because she has a
life that she wants more than anything. Wouldn't we all do
whatever we could to keep that life safe from harm? I look
forward to more books from Caitlin West.
Everyone knows Vampires don’t exist… But what if everyone is wrong?
Anne Pearce has a normal, comfortable life. She’s a successful artist dating the perfect guy in the northeastern US. No one would suggest she was anything more than a touch eccentric and considerably lucky. Few people actually manage to make their dreams come true the way she seems to have.
But beneath the veneer, Anne has a frightening secret; a past that stretches back over the better part of two centuries and a zealous religious order that has hounded her steps for generations. When a strange woman offers Anne a chance to finish off her provocateurs, she finds herself teetering between the normal life she’s worked so hard to build and the supernatural underworld she has so desperately tried to avoid.
