Since this is summer I think this would be the ideal time to break out the romance novels. Of course romance alone isn't always enough so adding in vampires just makes thing even better and there's some eye candy on the cover for readers to enjoy. I didn't realize this was part of a series although I should have because I'm such a series magnet.
This is the fourth book in the Enclave series. You could just start with this book and enjoy it but I really think it would have been a better reading experience for me if I had read the first three books before this one to avoid the feeling of walking into the theater when the movie's halfway through. I did like it and it wasn't too hard to try to figure out things but there were things missing that I would like to know.
I do think this book and series would appeal to people who love the Black DaggerBrotherhood books since it has that same kind of vibe to it. The Enclave is a bunch of vampires that kill DEADs who seem to be vampires that drain people to the point of death turning them into junkies I guess. I didn't really like Markus. I'm not sure if my feelings about him would change if I knew more about him. I'm just left scratching my head and wondering what Alexandria sees in him since I just don't. The mating thing is interesting but a bit strange. I did like this book although despite the sex scenes. I'm just not really a fan of them in general. I can take them in small doses and didn't really care for them in this book.
