(from back cover) ” His name is Dante. Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.
His past is a mystery. F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be “nightkind”; in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.
His future is chaos. What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer – and she’s pretty sure that link makes him the CCK’s next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man – who, she begins to believe. may indeed be a vampire – in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante’s past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny…”
WOW. Just when you thought that nobody could come up with a new take on vampires, this author comes along and blows my mind! I loved this book, the characters, the storyline, and I am anxiously awaiting another novel about Dante, Heather and Lucien. I am serious when I say RUN to get your copy of this book. I’m happy to say I own a copy because I will be re-reading this again and again. Bring on the Fallen, True Blood’s and Inferno!
I just finished re-reading this book, yes, it was THAT GOOD! So I am re-posting my origional review and adding on.
Adrian Phoenix’s complex characters and plot pacing are amazing! Not only did I totally enjoy re-reading this book, it was even better the second time around. The next book in the series, In The Blood is due to be released January 2009. Action, suspense, romance and danger all mixed in with a wicked combination of paranormal elements make A Rush Of Wings one of my TOP reads of the year!
