Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...
Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.
This is a really interesting and great read. I seriously regretted it that I didn't immediately read it and I just let it rot in my shelf for a few months. It's really great that Vlad got his own book. This gives us Vlad-fans something to squeal about. I love how Jeaniene make near death experiences that makes everything oh-so-great. Cat made an appearance in the book but there are no signs of Bones, which is really sad.
However, I'm a bit disappointed with how Vlad's character is growing. I'm not seeing the Vlad that I fell in love with anymore. Though, he is still merciless, which is really great. The turnover of emotions in the book was just way too fast for my taste. I was expecting more scenes for understanding and change but Jeaniene just flung everything out in the open. As for Leila, I don't really like how she is throwing herself at Vlad. She just can't hold her emotions at bay. I mean get a grip girl; I know you're stronger than that. Also, why can't you learn some major butt kicking like Cat did. You can't just really on you whip because it's going to get you killed someday. I also like and pity Maximus here, despite being a total jackass.
I still think that Cat and Bones' books are way better but we can't be too choosy. Vlad is still a great guy despite everything that I said and this book is still a great read, no matter what. Also, Cat and Bones' series ended so this is our only peak at Vlad people. I just hope Jeaniene improves the story line of this series to make it as good as the Night Huntress Series.
