Wow, this was definitely a page turner!
Just when I thought I knew whats going on, and it all figured out, WHAM!!! the twist in the storyline turned me for a loop. I really enjoyed reading this book.
Lucius Dragos is at a local bar when in order to avoid the perceptive gaze of the man he planning to kill he grabs the beautiful brunette sitting next to him and kissed her. And oh what a kiss it was!
What started off as a diversionary kiss turned in to an explosive night of passion that is all-consuming...
Sara Constantine is an up and coming prosecuting attorney who is thrilled about her promotion to the infamous and mysterious District 6. However, what she thought was a sector of Homeland Security, turns out to be the PEC- The Preternatural Enforcement Coalition and now she has learned she won't be prosecuting the average Joe anymore, but Vampyres, Werewolves and other things that go bump in the night.
Her first case hits a little closer to home than expected. She has to prosecute a man accused to murdering a retired judge. It's nothing she can't handle she handled plenty of cases and she is good at her job. However, what she wasn't prepared for was coming face to face with her defendant, none other than Lucius Dragos ,the mystery man from the bar. And that is not all, he's a vampyre...
Now Sara must do what is right and find evidence against Lucius even if it means his execution, no matter her feelings for him which are getting complicated by the day.
Meanwhile...Stemmons, a serial killer, one Sara just recently put away, has escaped and no little girl is safe, the attacks are getting worse and upon closer inspection, they look like a vampyre is assisting him.
The author does a great job putting a spin on the vampire life, giving them actual daemons who vie for dominance over each other. This was refreshing, because with so many Vampire series/books out there it's hard not to have overlapping or redundancy. I found J.K Beck's twist acceptable but not overdone.
