Washington, D.C. … capital of an empire.
Powerful. Exhilarating. Corrupt. And in the shadows … vampires far older than
the nation itself.
A power unto himself, Duncan has served at Raphael’s
side for nearly the entire two hundred years of his existence. But long laid
plans have finally borne fruit, and the time has come for Duncan to leave
Raphael and tackle the greatest challenge of his life. He will face treacherous
vampires and murderous humans. He will rock the halls of human power if
necessary. But Washington, D.C. will be his.
Emma Duquet cares nothing
for vampire politics. She just wants to find her missing roommate and best
friend, Lacey. But Lacey’s been playing with vampires of a particularly
dangerous kind, and Emma will have to deal with the new vampire in town if she’s
going to find her friend.
Battling powerful enemies who will stop at
nothing to keep their secrets, Duncan and Emma will dig beneath the corruption
and depravity that is Washington, D.C. and uncover the most heinous conspiracy
Don't let the covers fool you, this is definitely a series to read. Suspense, murder, power, and passion. Duncan has been Raphael's lieutenant for more than 100 years. But now its his turn to take over a territory, one that badly needs to be cleaned up. Emma just wants to find her friend, even though it may not be the ending she is hoping for. Emma is a strong willed character much like Cynthia. And next to Raphael and Cynthia, Duncan and Emma are my next favorite couple. I really didn't want this book to end, I wanted to spend more time with Duncan and Emma and watch their story grow. But Reynolds has other ideas, and is the Queen of cliff-hangars. She leaves us with another tease into the next territory we will discover. It seems that Reynolds has a grand scheme for the revitalization of North America, only time will tell how this will all turn out.
