Her soft golden skin, her warm smile...these are the only images Veronica Austin has left of her mother who disappeared without a trace twenty years ago on the streets of Minneapolis while researching the Ramanga, the Lamia, the Metusba, and the Lugat. Known only as the Deamhan, they are a different breed from the modern bloodsucking vampire. A stranger to this world, Veronica s search for the truth about her mother s unexplained disappearance takes her into their sinister and precarious world. She gains the trust of the only other human familiar with the Deamhan lifestyle. With his help she finds not only can the Deamhan not be trusted but it s her own father, president of a ruthful organization of researchers, who has diabolically maintained that distrust.
*I received the ebook copy from Booklikes giveaway but this has not affected my review and rating in any way.
As usual I didn't read the synopsis of this book (I always prefer that) so I had no idea this is about those vampire-like creatures called Deamhans. I'm a fan of vampire stories and it's been a while since the last time I read a book in this genre so I was really excited to see the turn of events after learning about the vampire-like creatures called Deamhans. The different types of Deamhans, their history, and how they feed were really interesting. They're not just the ordinary bloodsucker creatures!
I like the strong character of Veronica, but I was drawn to the character of Remy and I wish there had more about him in this book.
There were actually lots of stuffs going on that I had to slow down reading to process it all. More secrets, lies, actions and mysteries unfold As Veronica continues her search for the disappearance of her mother. I didn't get thrilled that much until the action scene when Lucius appeared at Kei's congregation. More questions were left that frustrated me but that's what the sequel is for and the ending really surprised me because of the traitor who was revealed!
I need to read the sequel! I need answers to the left questions. I wanna know what happened to Sean! I want more of Remy! Can't wait for Lucius to kill that traitor Kei!
This is a mystery/thriller/action read with twists and turns with not only Deamhans but also vampires and the ruthless The Brotherhood that will keep you turning the pages!
I would recommend this read especially those into paranormal genre.
