She gave me her blood, and my life changed forever.
Anastasia. My sire. The only influential figure in my already-fragile life. She did this to me. She caused all the pain and suffering. There was a time I believed I owed her everything.
After all, she gave me immortality and the never-ending thirst for the energy contained in the blood of my victims.
But now vampires hunt me and the humans want to use me as their personal weapon. They believe I'm some kind of apotropaic figurine that can damn all Deamhan and force us back into hell where we belong.
Me? I just want to live. I just want to be Maris.
That way, the only one I can damn is myself.
**This novel takes place between Book 1 and Book 2 of the Deamhan Chronicles**
This novel takes place between book 1 and book 2 of Deamhan Chronicles so there were names and Deamhan terms I'm familiar with because I've read The Deamhan Chronicles book 1 already. I've missed the Deamhan world and good thing I was given an ecopy of this book from the author. This book is about Maris, her life after her transformation in being a Ramanga Deamhan, about her importance as well as a danger to Deamhans and why Vampires and some Deamhans wanted her dead, about how other Deamhans protected her and the bloody battles it had cost, about Maris' ancestors' link to the Pure Ones, about her life in New York and Chicago with Finley where they blended with the humans, about the two Deamhans she cared most and how they were gone in her life, and about the upcoming threat from Lucius and why he's looking for her.
This book explains more about the Dictum, the Pure Ones and how, who, why Deamhans were created and a bit information of the Dorvo Coven and their relationship with The Brotherhood. This book is more emotional than the Deamhan Chronicles book 1. Although I didn't like Maris because some of her decisions resulted in bloody attacks, my heart went out to her during her down moments. I felt the pain, and her sorrow after the two Deamhans she cared most were killed. That scene when she came back for Finley but things didn't turned out what she expected and with all the flashbacks of their time together and their dream to go to San Francisco really broke my heart. I can't wait to find out how the characters and plot from Deamhan Chronicles book 1 and from this book will all be connected in the second book of both series.
There's a glossary at the end of this book that explains the Deamhan terms.
This is a highly recommended read especially those into supernatural genre. Enjoy the bloody action-packed scenes, revelations and twists and turns of events in the world of Deamhans.
