The vampire population may have created an economic boom in Alaska, but their altered energy field fries most technology. They rely on hard-living—and short-lived—couriers to get business done…couriers like Sydney Kildare.
Sydney has survived to the ripe old age of twenty-six by being careful. She’s careful when navigating her tempestuous clients, outrunning hijackers and avoiding anyone who might distract her from her plan of retiring young to a tropical, vampire-free island.
Her attitude—and immunity to vampires’ allure—have made her the target of a faction of vampires trying to reclaim their territory. Her only ally is Malcolm Kelly, a secretive charmer with the uncanny habit of showing up whenever she’s in trouble. Caught in the middle of a vampire turf war, Sydney has to count on Malcolm to help her survive, or the only place she’ll retire is her grave…
From the first page I was hooked and read this book in two hours as I was unable to put it down.
I loved that this book was original and it is what attracted me to it in the first place. It gave a new outlook on vampires and I know this could not have been easy for the author as vampires have already been well described in may novels.
This book was fast paced and kept me on my toes throughout. I love that Sidney and Malcolm relationship did not just suddenly happen, it evolved throughout the story. I find that in most books I read in this genre relationships happen to quickly and I feel rushed into.
The only negative opinion I have of this book is that it was not long enough. I finished and found myself thinking is that it over? Not because I was disappointed by the story but because I was left wanting more.
Overall a very good quick read that I highly recommend and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
A copy of this book was received for free and all opinions are my own through reading it.
