Even by vampire standards, Reaper is a loner, and his current mission to destroy a
gang of rogue bloodsuckers is definitely a one-vamp job. Then fate takes a hand, and before he knows it, he's surrounded by a ragtag crew of misfit helpers: the newbie, the princess, the shape-shifter and the human healer.

Seth is new to immortality, but he's sharp and strong and he'll risk anything for the rogues' strange female captive, a secretive creature he doesn't understand but feels compelled to save.

Vixen is confused by the emotions that swirl through her at the sight of her impulsive hero. She only hopes the brutal Gregor and his bloodthirsty renegades will leave her alive long enough to explore them.

Or will Reaper himself be the one to destroy them all?
We get to meet a whole new batch of characters in this one - so if you're looking to jump in at the middle - this is the place to do it. Reaper is an assassin - a very good one.  He's been hired to take out a dangerous rogue vampire.  But this rogue is more that what we think at first - he's being a little too smart and seems to have a bigger plan.

Our main couple, Seth and Vixen, are two newly turned vampires.  But Vixen is also something more.  She's a really awesome character and has a whole bunch of surprises up her sleeve.  I thought at first I wouldn't like this addition to the lore of Wings in the Night, but as I got to know more about her history and what she really was - I ended up really enjoying it.

Seth, well, he was a bit of a jerk a few times.  But I still loved him because I knew he wasn't trying to be one, he just wasn't reacting well to the situations around him.  Deep down he was such a sweetheart and you can't help but love him.  There is quite a bit of excitement in this book and lots of pieces to a new puzzle are laid out.  I think the next segment of this world's story is going to be very interesting.
