Description

Working late one night, Natalie Pierce is kidnapped by a creature that looks like a harmless old man, but is something far more terrifying. Waking up in a creepy mausoleum, she is forced to endure three nights of indescribable agony. Her life is forever altered when she is transformed into a monster of myth and legend; a vampire.

Lonely and full of despair, she comes face to face with the irresistible and enigmatic Lord Lucentio. Justice bringer for the European Vampire Council, Luc has been sent to Australia to kill Natalie’s maker, but someone has already beaten him to it. He quickly discovers that Nat is far from an ordinary fledgling. He suspects that she is Mortis, a figure of both hope and dread among their kind.

Natalie is propelled into a dark and mysterious underworld that takes her far away from her hometown of Brisbane. Her arrival was foretold long ago and her fate is already sealed. Nat’s entire species is in danger and it is her job to save them. She desperately wants to escape from the burden that has been thrust upon her, but she is inextricably linked to a two thousand year old prophecy. An unknown enemy has begun to whittle down their already limited numbers. If Nat fails to accept her destiny, all vampires will soon cease to exist.

    Fun read, great characters and a twist on the same ol vampire stories. WARNING- cliffhanger ending. Not a stand alone book. Readers have to buy the 2nd book, 3rd, ect to continue the story. I don't much care for those kind of tactics by authors,,I like a beginning, middle and an ending. So I won't be buying the second book just to see what happens.
  • Great book

    I loved it. Wish I'd heard of it last year. Full of sexy vampires and a female heroine who has strong morals and can shake it the old and staid council and their sorry politics. Bring it on Nat!
