To claim it, he must find the young woman whispered to be the Golden Child.

Together they hunt for the man who can destroy them both--a hunt that takes them to the edge of twilight, where only the Immortals belong.

We continue the story of Amber Lily in book 10 of Wings in the Night.  After the evens in book 8, her life has changed drastically.  She has learned to be more independent and more dependent at the same time.  She understands that she is something new and different.  And while some will view that as something to be cherished and protected, others (like DPI) view it as a new subject to tear apart and figure out.

We also get to meet Edge - a young vampire (all things considered) that is set to find the last remaining DPI agent and make sure he dies a horrible death.  That's all well and good, but Amber Lily has her own reasons for hunting the man down, and she needs him alive.

They have quite an interesting romance, but I didn't feel as if that was the highlight of the book.  More and more new and different things are discovered (I really wish I could say more - but I would give way too much away).  The main focus of the story didn't seem to be so  much about the romance at times, but about continuing the storyline of the vampires I've come to love reading about.  Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of very romantic scenes and it definitely should be considered a paranormal romance, but there was just too much else going on at the same time.  Some of the more hardcore romance readers may not get into this as much as I did.

There seems to be some very fun and exciting things to come for our little group.  There's a short story at the end of this one to set the hooks for book #11 - and it sounds very exciting.  We got to meet a "young" Rhiannon in it and it solidified her as one of my favorites - the pet panther helps a bit too.
