Sebastian and Briana have very few things in common, but what they do share is the heavy burden of responsibility for the ones they love and a quiet exhaustion from years of cleaning up others’ messes. Meeting each other brings instant chemistry, but Briana isn’t sure what she wants and after learning Sebastian’s mixed history and vampire state, she’s more confused than ever. Murder, arson and intrigue seem to follow Sebastian and his brethren like a shadow, but for the first time in many years, Sebastian wants to take a chance at love. When Briana’s life and livelihood is threatened, they’ll both have to decide how much their attraction means.

Vampire stories are so popular that a writer has to give them a new feel to engage a reader, which is something Ms. Pierce does beautifully. Sebastian manages to be aloof and brooding as well as endearing and sexy. Briana is a strong character and an interesting counterpart to Sebastian, but they work extremely well together. The secondary characters in turn bring together and push the two apart, but with every challenge that might break them apart for good, a deeper connection is made; a true show of romance writing done very well. The last fifty pages had me turning them as quickly as my Sony Reader would let me as suspense built to boiling. It’s a great start to the Darkisle series Ms. Price is promising and gets four diamonds. Vampire lovers especially will enjoy the twists in the breed and those in search of a suspenseful, sexy read will find it in Heirs to Darkisle
