Summary (from Goodreads):
“Lenah Beaudonte should be dead. But having sacrificed herself to save another, she finds herself awakening with strange powers that are neither vampire nor human—and a new enemy on her trail. In her vampire life, Lenah had thought that being human was all she ever wanted; but the human heart suffers pain, heartbreak and loss.
With her new powers growing and the dark force of the Nex after her soul, Lenah faces a choice: between the mortal love of gorgeous Justin, whose passion fed her human soul, and taking a different path to become the mistress of her own destiny, wherever that may lead…”
This book (and series, for that matter) is seriously addictive! I read the first book when it came out (which has been I think about two years ago) but even though I didn’t remember very much, I was able to follow this book very well. (Even so, if you haven’t read the first book, Infinite Days, I would start there.)
Odette is also one of the creepiest villains ever and (in the best villain tradition) seems nearly unstoppable. Seriously—I dare you to read this and not find her absolutely chilling.
But what’s even more interesting/unsettling is how Lenah-as-human is so likable and kind but when seen in flashbacks (Lenah-as-vampire), she’s the exact opposite. (It’s basically as drastic as the difference between Angel and Angelus in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.)
I’m not sure that there will be a third book but I hope there will be. I like Lenah (well, I like HUMAN LENAH) and I do want to spend more time in her world. (Well, her human world.)
