Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.


F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be "nightkind": in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.


What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer -- and she's pretty sure that link makes him the CCK's next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man -- who, she begins to believe, may indeed be a vampire -- in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante's past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny....

I absolutely LOVED this book. It's packed with just about everything. So many genres are mixed into this book, that once you get started, you just can't put it down. It happened to me. I just wanted to know how everything would turn out in the end, and I wasn't disappointed.

It's told in multiple POV, and boy does Adrian pull it off. The cast of characters is amazing, so I can wait to read more books about the world of the Nightkind. Not only is the story excellent, but I was pulled into the story so deeply because of the way Adrian writes. She's got this wonderful style that's unique and lyrical. And Dante? Oh yeah, you'll be hooked.

Okay, I won't go into the story because knowing me, I'll probably give something vital away. But honestly, this book is well-worth reading. Awesome! Check it out. :)
