When a vampire finds his soul mate, the bond is forever. It’s love at first sight. Or is it?
Flint, Ohio, Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for nearly two hundred years. He’s fought wars, seen life go from the simple but hard colonial days to the modern, high-tech world. He’s evolved with the times, adapting with each new era, blending into each new life. The one constant is his best friend and lover, Declan.
Until Forge’s soul mate tumbles, literally, into his life.
Even though they’re not fated to be together forever, Forge and Declan are perfectly happy. Despite the pheromone attracting him to his soul mate, Forge isn’t thrilled with the guy, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soul mate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is on the hunt for the serial killer who’s leaving a trail of bodies, and who witnesses can’t identify. But Forge better watch out. When his work collides with his love life, things really heat up.
really enjoyed this story. Why? Because the characters were so great and the mystery kept me wanting to know more.
Forge and Blair were so fun together. Forge was this closed off, hard-assed cop who really wasn’t closed off at all. He was closed off to soulmates because he was fighting for a love that he knew wouldn’t last. He was this brooding character who was just begging for love. But Blair on the other hand stole the show and my heart. He was fantastic. Goofy, geeky, and full of this sweet innocence that just tugged at me. As I watched him connect to Forge and drive the man crazy, I laughed regularly. As I watched him become this selfless man who only wanted Forge to have love and offer a solution even if it meant Blair would be miserable, well I almost cried. Blair was my kind of character and I loved that he found love.
The mystery surrounding the murders and strange DNA collection methods was interesting. I listened to this book in one day because I wanted to know more. I wanted to know more about this creature, this world, and the motivations for these killings. I loved that this was linked to the first book and will carry on into the next. Enough of my questions were answered that I felt satisfied with the ending. But enough questions were left open that I need to read the next story ASAP. When will it be coming to audio?
I am loving this series. I am so glad there are more books already published so that I can get my fix right away!
So this narration was weird for me. There were times I loved the narrator and how he handled voices and emotions. I felt he captured Blair perfectly. But there were other times his voices were strange and somewhat off. Like Forge and Declan. The narrator was so careful with those weird voices that the emotion and the character’s essences were lost. I did enjoy this story, but I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator would have been the same as the first book.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
