Abandoned and perhaps forgotten by her lover, vampire Daphne Urban has an attitude--she doesn’t hate all men, just the ones who have broken her heart. But right now, she has no time for romance. Daphne and her fellow spies in Team Darkwing, the ultra-secret anti-terrorist cadre created by the CIA, are facing a diabolical enemy: A mysterious, cruel, and unstoppable professional assassin named Gage is coming to New York City to kill the most popular political leader in America.

Team Darkwing not only has to find Gage before it’s too late, but discover the real identity of this dark, deadly killer. And during the mission Daphne, a woman betrayed by love, is finding herself inexorably drawn back into the life she once rejected: New York’s secret vampire underworld, where all pleasures are pursued and no desire is forbidden, especially the one she has so long resisted . . . to hunt and feast on live, human blood.

Wow! Man, I was hooked on this book from the first chapter. Honestly, this is one of my favourite series at the moment. This one is the third in The Darkwing Chronicles, and certainly did not disappoint!

I love Daphne. She's an awesome heroine with so many flaws that she feels like a real person. It's so wonderful when the reader can get so involved in a character's life. It's cool.

Anyway, being a vampire isn't easy. Being a spy sure doesn't help. Having a mother who's full of secrets can be a total pain in the ass. And having so much temptation in the guise of a bunch of hot men, can certainly make life even more difficult. Lol. Daphne's not having the best of times at the moment, but she is determined to carry out the next assignment until the end.

And you don't want to miss her slow descend into the darkness she was positive she'd kept under control after all these years.

In the end, this was a fabulous book. I actually got the fourth one last weekend, and I'm so caught up in her story that I think I'm going to have to read it next...

If you're into vampires, you should definitely be reading this series!
