Blurb:  Wild Bill and Michael might have thought they made it out of the subterranean vampire nest unscathed, but in her anger, Silk left Michael a taste of her wrath that’s impossible to shake.

It’s a race against time to cure Michael of a bizarre affliction, and though the hunter and his favorite vamp have few enough friends, Bill can’t ash a cigarette without burning another bridge. Now Wild Bill must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice to save his lover.

His friends? His scruples? His pride?

His humanity?


Review: Michael has been infected by one of the vamps from the nest – Silk. Bill is forced to ask for help – something he hates – in order to save Michael. He has to decide between keeping Michael’s arm or risk death if the gamble to save the arm doesn’t work.

Later, Bill is faced with the option to become more like Michael or to stay a full Vampire, and Michael’s choice – for better or worse – guides Bill’s decision.


I think that the story had to end like this. It’s as hopeful and warm as these two characters could ever be. Their love is strong. Their lives are imperfect, but they make the absolute best of it they can. When Bill tells Michael “You’re the best thing that ever happened to me”, you get the idea that this is the absolute truth.

I know that some people would want to see the series progress, but I really like where it ends. I like knowing that they are as happy now, as ever, and that wherever they end up, they’ll be together. It may not be terribly sappy, definitely not sweet, but it is love and that makes it so rich and rewarding.

I highly recommend this book and this series and give it 4.5 of 5 stars.

Overall Impression: I loved it!

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
