Description: It’s been five months since vampire Sam Parker Bound herself to Jared Michaels, her powerful co-commander within the Grand High Master vampire’s personal legion. Life as a Bound couple has been going just fine…until the Grand High Master announces he will be stepping down from his position and wants Sam and Jared to take his place. Oh joy. Despite Sam’s reservations, she agrees to ascend. But something very powerful has surfaced; something that is quickly decreasing the vampire population and could steal the lives of people close to Sam. At the same time, she finds herself under the scrutiny of vindictive vampires accusing her of exploiting her position as a commander – something that would threaten her ascension. Under the watchful eyes of people who would love nothing more than to strip her of her title, Sam and Jared must continue to conceal her hybrid status and find a way to fight this power that nothing before them has ever been able to overcome. If not, they stand to lose not only the people they hold close, but their future as the Grand High Pair.
Warning: This novel features a female vampire who is a ray of blunt, obstinate sunshine, a possessive alpha male vampire who considers her his only weakness, lots of bad words, some dirty talk, and steamy explicit sex. (via Goodreads.com)
NOTE: This 3rd novel of the series. You must read the previous two before you read this book. With that said, Wright does an excellent of recapping the narrative.
Sam and Jared have overcome most of the obstacles in their relationship and are finally together. Wright’s narrative focuses more on the outside forces that are bent on destroying their happiness, and the couple working as a team to eliminate them. This novel has the right balance of romance and action, making it a very exciting read.
Wright has created an amazing fantasy world. The vampire mythology is extremely detailed, this along with the complex storyline, engrossed the reader in the narrative.
Oh Sam, it awesome to see how crazy and kick ass you are. She is constantly putting Jared in his place and reminding him that she is just as powerful as he is. His instinct is to protect her and to shield her from harm, but she always proves that she can take care of herself.
Are we going to hear more from these characters? We are hoping we do!
