Will Aura’s dreams point her to Abe, can it be that easy and what does Morana have in store for her with her centennial gala?
This is such a great series. Seeing the dynamics between Aura and Carver always make for a steamy read. And with Lucian coming around more, Aura has plenty to handle. I like how the newest character was introduced without ever really doing it. The writing between Graceley and D.D. is sure smooth and you can’t tell who wrote what part. Its great to see the growth in Aura from book one where she was just learning about being a vampire to this book where she accepts her fate, even if she doesn’t always like it. The story builds and the descriptions for not only the locations, but the rooms (once you read you will totally know what I mean) have such great detail.
