Saxom is dead. The vampires know this. Anthony Hancock, Director of the Joint NSA/Homeland Security Department knows it as well. Tony and the vampires are now on the hunt for Saxom's brood, all of whom are determined to avenge their sire's death. Neither Tony nor the vampires are aware of the other's efforts to search out these rogues, who may number in the hundreds at the very least. Tony holds information the vampires don't—he knows that Xenides, Saxom's eldest vampire child, has allied with terrorists (both foreign and domestic). Tony also neglects to provide valuable information to Wlodek when he requests Lissa's help.
While struggling to recover from a near-fatal bout with the sun, Lissa fails to understand why Wlodek willingly sends her away on assignment so quickly. With very little information provided to her, Lissa is forced to face an enemy more deadly than anyone can imagine and unravel a plot that could kill millions.
After that crazy cliffhanger ending, Lissa is now being sent off to work with Tony. The problem is he's not only human, but she's having a hard time dealing with the things that have been done to her. She also hates that Tony is hiding information from her, and doing more behind her back than she ever imagined.
This book made me hate a lot of characters. I was so pissed about stuff that happened at the end of the last one, and really frustrated with how Lissa is being treated. I can't wait for this girl to get all the a-holes back one day, because dayum!
Other than that, this one has a very interesting plot line, but there is a huge betrayal in it as well that had me wanting to reach inside the book and strangle someone. I really thought this one was good, and I can see Lissa changing and growing with all the things being done to her.
This is another cliffhanger ending, but I'm so pumped to read more.
