After living on the streets of New York for over a decade, Logan admits her perceptions might be a little skewed. But twisted or not, there's a satisfying irony in watching a well dressed vampire stand in the middle of a ghetto alley, windblown trash scraping circles near his feet. What she finds even more intriguing, is waiting for him to decide if he's going to kill her. Kerestyan hasn't made up his mind. As the Lord of New York, he can't let a drug addict, whose memories are packed with knowledge of vampires, run free in his city. It's not the first time he's been in this situation with a human, it's just the first time he's come face to face with one who doesn't seem to care. And that's what makes the decision so difficult.What horrors could you witness before you went numb? How long would it take before you felt that way? What could make you care again?Logan's answers are simple: the worst humanity has to offer, almost thirty, and something she never expected.… (mais)

This book is kinda different from other vampire books, but in a good way! I can't wait to read the rest of the series :D ( )

I liked this book. A lot. The world invented by the author is amazing. Or the tantalizing bits of it which we're allowed to see. Odin, with his wicked sense of humor; Vouclade who reminded me of Gregory from Christine Feehan's Carpathian novels; Trinity - Greek ex-prostitute... All of them are amazing vampires of Nelek's line. Of course, there is an extremely intriguing Stefan Nelek - the Sire of all Neleks himself (check out the art!) and mysterious and dangerous to all vampires Drake.


I was happy with the world, I wanted to know more! Logan's, Odin's and Vouclade's sense of humor were great, I was giggling at this

"Logan licked a glob of strawberry jelly from her lower lip and smiled up
at Odin. Only one comment seemed to perfectly fit her current situation. “I
see dead people.”
He leaned forward, hands on his hips. “Me, too. It’s the only explanation
for what’s standing in front of me. Unless some high school kids broke into
the anatomy closet and stole the classroom skeleton, stretched some cadaver
skin over that bitch then cast an ancient ritual to animate it."

My issues were with the main characters. Kerestyan, a 10,000 year old vampire was too human. He was typically tall, dark, brooding and handsome. I wanted someone detached from humanity, someone who you can tell is not entirely here anymore. 10 thousand years is a very long life, but although the other characters tell us that Kerestyan is very old-fashioned and he speaks formal from time to time, there is nothing more. Again it's just my problem, - many authors do exactly the same with their characters. Look at Hush, Hush. Ancient angel behaving like a spoiled teenager?

Now, Logan. I found it extremely hard to believe that a junkie who lived on the streets for 15 years would be an attractive woman and have healthy white teeth. I've seen a lot of junkies and first thing you notice is that drugs destroy their teeth; they rot and they crumble. I also couldn't help but roll my eyes when after two grueling days withdrawal from drugs first thing that Logan does when she opens her eyes is having wild monkey sex with Kerestyan.

Oh well, if you don't mind rolling your eyes few times it's a great read! I'm definitely interested in reading more and I wouldn't mind to see a movie made based on these books :)
