Josh Brenner is a good looking guy with an extraordinary talent he thinks is a curse: he’s telepathic and can’t find the mute button so he lives in solitude only coming out at night. But Josh isn’t the only supernatural out and about this cold March night, because when Josh returns from his midnight run to the store, he runs smack into a hungry agitated vampire looking for something…and Josh is in his way.
Horrified by what he’s seen and barely escaping with his life, Josh confides in a woman he barely knows, but has an instant connection with. When another vampire shows up looking for the first, Josh and his new friend Lanie find themselves running for their lives and head to Oljone, California, where a friend of Lanie’s from college has helped her with a supernatural problem in the past. But when they get to California with the vampire hot on their trail, they find Darby, Lanie’s college pal, has moved to Massachusetts in search of her vampire boyfriend, Devon. Luckily, Darby’s sister, Rowan, and Devon’s vampire brother, Blake, step in and help Josh and Lanie as best they can.
The four work together along with Dean (a werewolf) and his girlfriend, Sally (a witch), to figure out this crazy mystery. What does this determined vampire want and why? And is he willing to kill for it? As this mystery unfolds, so do other darker mysteries. Will they figure things out in time before some is killed? You’ll just have to read it to see!
Tolles truly surprised me with this installment. I believe she was just getting warmed up with the previous three. The new characters and plot enchanted me; I was completely seduced.
The beginning of the fantasy introduces you into the lives of two magical hermits that have a chance meeting on one dark, dangerous night. This encounter sets off a fast-paced chain reaction that lands them into trouble and leads them to our favorite heroine, Darby O’Reilly. As in true Tolles fashion, it is the women taking chances and the men eating the popcorn.
The finale was scrumptious and will leave you wanting more.
