"the best vampire novel I've read in a very long time!"

Jessica, dying, thirsty and alone had made it to her goal. She had breached the walls of Farida's tomb and was quite content to die there, as had been her plan since she had killed Raithe, the vampire who had kidnapped her and abused her for over five years. Unfortunately, she hadn't counted on her guides coming back for buried treasure. She really hadn't counted on Lord Mason, Farida's husband to show up and kill them. After all, Farida had died over 300 years ago!

Mason was stunned. There was an intruder in the tomb. When he finds Jessica, it is obvious she doesn't have long to live. He gives her a first bite and takes her home to recover. Little does he know how obsessed she is with Farida's history, which includes him in a major way.

Jess doesn't know anything except that Lord Mason must be a vampire - one of those who had tortured her all those years and she tries to escape more than once. As he tries to gain her trust she begins to understand that all vampires aren't alike - she hopes.

OMG! This has to be the best vampire novel I've read in a very long time! Joey Hill has outdone herself in descriptions and plot. This is not a small book (464 pages) and I read it in a day and a half (don't tell my boss!), couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. If we had a star system, I'd give it 6 out of 5....and, on a hot scale a 10 out of 5. Definitely.

An oath of the flesh, honored in blood, till the day they die.

Escaping the depraved servitude of a vampire master she killed, Jessica has found her way, with three nomadic guides, to the sun-baked desolation of the Sahara—only to slowly perish. Then she hears the tale of Farida, an enigmatic beauty lost as well to the Sahara three centuries ago, whose ancient desire for the legendary vampire Lord Mason is stirring the same desires in Jessica. But the more Jessica’s fatal curiosity reveals of Farida, the closer she gets to Lord Mason’s irresistible and forbidden secret.
