Derek Argeneau is on his much-needed vacation. The life of an immortal can be filled with plenty of pleasure and free time, but Derek has chosen to work for the immortal enforcers, a very full-time job leaving little room for idleness. When his uncle Lucian calls to tell him of a rogue vampire attacking innocents near Derek’s cottage, vacation time
is over to soon. The biggest kicker of all is the unexpected identity of the rogue vampire: an old Argeneau family member.
Coming upon the scene of the possible rogue, Derek and his new partner get thrown into another wild tangent of events, escalating the situation’s danger and rogue vampire numbers dramatically. Dr. Danielle McGill and her young sister are innocent victims being held captive for the pleasure of the psychotic group of rogue vampires. The pleasure, of course, is in the torture and feeding off
of the women.
Derek and his partner are terribly outnumbered, and the lives of the two women
rest solely on their rescue attempt. Success is the only option before them, else all their lives will be brutally lost. With
a rapid exchange of crossbow shots and gunfire, the rogues are infiltrated. When the air clears, two people are missing: Dr. McGill’s
sister and one of the Rogues.
The race is on to determine the identities of the rogues and the possible plans that the escapee may have with the girl. Of course, Dani McGill isn't going to be an innocent bystander any longer.
As she connects the dots, realities about her rescuers begin to filter through her mind. The existence of vampires is not possible, and trusting these men with her safety and the rescue of her sister is a far cry from sanity.
Unfortunately, the rogue vampires are neither dead nor through with her. As her life is once again threatened by the psychotic monsters, trusting Derek and his friends is her only option. Can he save her and her sister from the terrible fate the rogues are so determined to deliver them
to? If he can’t, will Dani become crazy and blood thirsty like them, needing to be put down like a rabid animal?
Lynsay Sands is a New York Times bestseller and has created an interesting piece of immortal fiction that actually exhibits story characteristics different from the usual vampire
fare. It's refreshing to be presented with such a remarkable variation in immortal characteristics, creation and evolution. However, the traditional tales of old that have led to the foundations of most immortal stories have been grasped for their more likely reality and their darkly romantic nature. The new fictional ideas presented by Sands are so creative as to make some of the fiction too unbelievable to be enjoyable.
