Not all vampire hunters dress in head-to-toe leather and sit on rooftops overlooking a gritty vampire-ridden city. Meet Delia Roberts. At twenty-six, she’s a mid-level hunter with the Harriswood League, and, despite her best efforts, isn’t scaling the hunter hierarchy anytime soon.
Months earlier, desperate to prove herself, Delia snuck into an exclusive vampire masquerade, only to wind up with a bite on her neck courtesy of clan leader and gorgeous vampire Claude Grimm. Fearful of the League’s punishment for succumbing to a bloodsucker’s charms, Delia does what she can to hide the bite and pretends the night never happened.
These days, however, Claude is determined to win her over, insisting the spark they felt that fateful night is worth pursuing. As Delia tries to ignore her steadily growing feelings for the enemy and fend off a mounting quarter-life crisis, vampire clan tensions worsen around the quiet city of Harriswood, bringing with them a danger unlike any the League has ever seen.
One that might change the course of history for good.
The books picks up right where The Fool ends. Della has bit marks from her night with Claude Grimm the vampire king and she is trying to get her life together. Della is trying to hid it from the league and Claude is pursuing her. She is torn she knows she should stay away from him but she wants to spend more time with him. Della is realizing that things are not as they seem. What will she choose Claude or the League? What will happen if the League finds out? Will Claude give up or will he continue to persuade her? I really felt for Della at times because the league clearly has their own goal in mind. They keep important things form the hunters and have their favorites. I feel like Della might not have ended up in the situation with Claude had the league trained her better and not kept so much from her because of her place of the league ladder. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. Great job Liz.
