In a world we think we know, live other races entirely hidden from the mortal perspective. Creatures of legend, of fable and myth, their very history and nature have allowed them to walk side by side with humans since time immemorial. They are warriors, they are hunters, and they are Algula Vampire. And in their own midst, a battle is brewing for supremacy, for dominance, that can and will affect all around them. Old hatred never dies and vengeance is a fiery sword that cuts a bloody swath.
This was an interesting introduction into this author's world. We are given another look at a more primal warring sects of vampires, no sparkly ones here! We have Zayn and Nikole who are the children of the good side of the war. Their uncle is evil and has children of his own that believe in his cause and want to avenge his supposed wrong. So Zayn and Nikole are constantly pitted against their cousins and are constantly on the run. Even though it seems all of their uncle's children have an agenda of their own.
It was an interesting story, with lots of torture and multi-dimensional characters. I enjoyed it even though at times I felt as though the main characters needed to mature a bit. I would definitely like to read the second book to see where the story is going. The plot itself was quite intriguing!
