All vampires hunger for blood, but for Mika the pleasures of the flesh are as nourishing as blood. Since the start of her unlife, she has indulged her need for carnal satiation. After the death of her mater-sire, she began to comprehend the complexities of the political struggles embroiling the clans of Haven, and now that knowledge fascinates her. While deep with the slums controlled by Clan Corbius, Mika meets a handsome and dangerous exile who is as renowned for his fighting skills as his ability to seduce. Hail McMahon is as sexy as he is unpredictable, and with his aid, Mika is able to escape from the territory of Clan Corbius after a mysterious attack by a mob of crazed vampires.


The world building in this book was absolutely fantastic but also its downfall. The first half of the book repeatedly gets bogged down with intricate details and explanations. So much so, a less determined reader may give up. However, I implore you, stick it out and the payoff is wonderful. I really got a good sense of the characters in the latter half of the novel more than I did the first half. Well worth the read if you're a determined reader such as myself. The conclusion felt a little rushed, however, I understand this is the proposed first book in a series. I eagerly await the next book.
