No one would call vampire Colin Ames-Beaumont kind, but they would call him unnaturally beautiful. For two centuries his tainted blood has kept him isolated from other vampires, sustained only by his beauty and vanity—bitter comforts, since a curse has erased his mirror reflection, replacing it with a terrifying glimpse of Chaos.
Savi Murray’s insatiable curiosity had gotten her into trouble before, but she’d always escaped unscathed. Then came Colin. In the midst of Heaven, he gave her a taste of ecstasy—and of Chaos. Deadly creatures from that realm herald the return of an imprisoned nosferatu horde, and Colin and Savi’s bond is their only protection—and their only passion…
Partly it’s that Savi’s more ‘relatable’ than Lili, I think, and then there’s the deliciousness of Colin. There is no other word to describe him. Delicious Colin. *happy sigh* His moral ambiguity only made him more delicious.
That’s a good word to describe the conflict as well. It’s a wonderful tangle, and Meljean did a great job of untangling it just enough to be livable for Colin and Savitri.
The pacing issue many of us complained about is much less an issue in this book as well.
I don’t recommend picking this book up to read unless you’ve the entire day free, by the way. It’s big and you are going to want to read it in one sitting.
This rates 5 out of 5.
