He is Mikael MacCumail, leader of a vampire clan. The oldest of his kind, he is considered invincible. Deadly. Most fear him, and he’s lived unchallenged for over a millennia. Until the night he loses it all.Stripped of his memory, stalked by vampires and vampire hunters alike, Mikael finds an unlikely ally in young hunter Emily Davenport. On the run with no one to turn to and no one to trust, the line between predator and prey begins to blur. In a world of unfamiliar shadows, Emily becomes his only light. Her beauty tempts him, her innocence disarms him. Mikael has waited centuries to find a woman like Emily, but when his past catches up with him and he discovers why his memory was taken, he must prepare to face an enemy he doesn’t know how to defeat. An enemy with no physical body, a life form–an entity–that lives inside vampire blood, moving from one body to the next, killing.
And now it wants Mikael.
This Is a great sequel. Mikael has absolutely no idea who he is or where he comes from but he puts himself on the line to save Emily, and they end up on the run. He is very protective and loving towards Emily throughout the book and shows what a good person he is. He protects her but also lets her have the freedom to do things for her self, which I imagine would be a little hard for someone who lived when women had no rights, Twenty-four centuries ago. I found I enjoyed the story between them very much, the budding romance and the mystery of who he really is, especially when he is found but doesn’t believe them about who they tell him he is at first. Then he has to hide his memory loss when he goes back to his life, so people don’t know because he has no idea who did what, to make him lose his memory and who’s trying to kill him.
This was a great read, I couldn’t put it down. I recommend it just as much as I did the first book in the series. 🙂
