Another action packed paranormal detective story with Angelica Cross and Danny Mancini. Angie enters this episode learning to deal with being fully turned into a vampire. Adjusting to her new situation she distances herself from everyone she loves and cares about “for their own protection,” so she thinks. As the heat turns up on the hunt for Angie’s archenemy, the demonic witch Fiona, Angie is forced to allow the humans dearest to her back into close association or risk failure in the hunt.
In this third book of the series Ms. Luchesi has again brought together a gripping plot and interesting characters. The only aspect I felt did not seem realistic to me is the unabashed and openly affectionate relationship between Brighton and Michael. In my experience the gay men I’ve known are more reserved and do not typically display such affectionate behavior publicly. But, that could be because of the parts of the country I’ve lived in. Otherwise, her characters were well developed and we get to know Angie and Danny even more, just as we get to know our friends better over time in real life. I can hardly wait for the next book!
