DESCRIPTION: Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight. After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray. As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear— Love.

This is a vamp! Justice! Fantasy romance novel full of hard action and blood sucking goodness!
Let me just start out by saying this is novel is amazing. I loved the realistic- almost like ours- world it's set in and even more I love the characters! Jon is a noble man you can't help but fall in love with. He's a perfect protagonist to this vampire battle and you'll find yourself cheering for him both on and off the field throughout the whole thing. Lawan is an alcoholic with a horrifying past.
She hates vampires for what they've done to her and she won't stop until each and every one of them is dead- particularly the ones who share a bloodline with our protagonist, Jon.
When she comes into the story it's kind of like a left field swing. She's a hard and heavy hitter who can only see things one way. But that's all about to change...
The action in this novel was spectacular. You never forget these are super half-dead humans you're reading about and I loved it! But even though they aren't human, they do still have human tendencies that make it easier to relate to them and fall in love with their unusual species.
As far as the romance goes, I was not disappointed.
At first I was afraid it was going to turn into something like Twilight, but not at all. Much better developments and a COMPLETELY different story.
I recommend this for vamp! fantasy fans, for sure.
