"What would you give for the one you love?"
Before starting this book I was expecting a typical woman
meets Vamp, falls in love and off they go into the sunset,
not literally that could lead to some crispy Vampires, but
I was wrong. This is a gut wrenching story of how much
would you give for the person you love. Could you take
their soul or save it if it meant saving them? Erik is
tall, dark and deadly but with one breath Angelica knows he
is hers. While he fights for the future, she is fighting
with the demons of her past. This story had me hooked
within a few pages, the gut wrenching emotion makes you
want to cry for them both and then beat them both.
There are several disturbing portions to the story but they
add a feeling of well, humanity to both Erik and Angelica.
The twists and turns this book takes made me take my Kindle
everywhere for a couple of days and left me guessing to the
very last page. The only gripe I had with the story was
the jumping around in time. I wish it had been made clear
when they were as the past and present intertwined
throughout the book. This was not a major issue as each
time set has its own set of characters that quickly allow
you to see when they are in time.
