Beneath the glitter of dazzling nineteenth-century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil…
Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long ago taken control of the world.
In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake. But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous moonlit streets, Victoria’s heart is torn between London’s most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her dark, dangerous duty.
And when she comes face-to-face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make a choice between duty and love.
This book is a re-read for me. I enjoyed this just as much as the first time I read this.
Victoria is, in my opinion, a strong female character, who tries to do what is right in society but also what is her destiny.
Colleen Gleason writes really good characters. I cared about them all, including the horrible Sebastian. I really like her writing style and the book kept me turning pages.
I really like this series and I can’t wait to see where the next book takes it.
