Synopsis: Houston, Texas–Cowboy boots, baseball and journeys to the stars . . . right?

Wrong. Because Houston is also home to Jabril Karim, one of the eight powerful Vampire Lords who control all of North America. And as Private Investigator Cynthia Leighton will soon discover, not all Vampire Lords are created equal.

Jabril is the face of evil in the new world, a vampire who values no life but his own, who enslaves those he desires, steals whatever he covets, and destroys anyone who stands in his way.

Running from L.A. and its seductive Vampire Lord, Raphael, Cyn sees the Houston job as a welcome refuge, a place to get away and heal her broken heart. But Texas will be no vacation. Cyn will confront a true enemy in Jabril, one who will go to any lengths to satisfy his lusts, enrich his coffers, and expand his power.

Fighting for the lives of two young sisters, Cyn’s journey will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., where the human police are determined to bring Raphael down for the murder of one of their own. But the danger doesn’t end there.

Jabril has set his sights on Cyn, and he will stop at nothing to have her.

What I thought about the book: Enjoyed this one more than the first book in the series. Cyn is still kick ass and Raphael is a bit more likeable in this book. I couldn’t understand the appeal in book 1 but I get it now. Jabril himself is a good bad guy….as in he’s a really bad bad guy… He’s a really creepy jerk!
Great action scenes, it didn’t get boring to read about people punching and kicking. The romance kind of took a back seat but it was established in the first book. This one kind of built the world a bit more. The only snag was the epilogue. Who the heck was that chick?!
