Book Description: Half-breed vampire, Adam Pride, has an almighty chip on his broad shoulders. Trying to move on after finding Angelina married to another, Adam has a decision to make. Remove the chip and move on or kill the man who took what he wanted most in the world, his Angel.
With his heart in pieces, Adam’s on a mission to become the best VC Warrior he can be. It’s not long before fate steps in, turning his world and life as he knows it upside down. Shocking revelations will realign allegiances and draw the VC Warriors onto a new path. This journey is not Adam’s alone. Every Warrior, half-breed and human will be affected by what is to come. The unknown awaits. The battle has just begun.
Captivation: The pattern Gabelman set with the other books in the series continues with this book. Capturing attention from the end of the prior book, and holding it through this one.
Sizzle: I wasn’t as impressed by the intimate scenes in this book… it’s not that it’s bad or awkward, it was fine, but back to being less descriptive than standard for the romance genre.
Romance: I really, really like Adam and Angelina’s story from a romance perspective. What a neat story, with a truly enthralling mystery and plot development. The continuing development of the other supporting characters continues to entertain as well.
Enjoyment: I liked this book, but it didn’t hold the level of entertainment for me as the others in the series so far. There’s no logical, explainable reason for it, other than that I was just a time or two a little bit bored. It wasn’t often, and didn’t last long, but it was there.
Literacy: I did catch a few minor, common editing errors, nothing horribly unexpected or distracting.
Overall, The plot thickens in this book, forcing my mind to immediately seek out “what happens next!” Though this isn’t my favorite of the series, this is definite an add for the read again bookshelf. The development for supporting characters and the plot alone are more than worthwhile, though Adam and Angelina’s story is also quite sweet.
