    Vampire. Rock star. Begotten son of the fallen angel Lucien. Dante Baptiste still struggles with nightmares and seizures, searching for the truth about his past. It is a quest as seductive as his kiss, as uncontrollable as his thirst, and as unforgiving as his determination to protect one mortal woman at any cost.


    FBI Special Agent Heather Wallace now knows the extent of the Bureau corruption that surrounds her, but worries she is losing the battle. And when Dante and his band Inferno come to Seattle on tour, Heather can’t help but be drawn back to the beautiful, dangerous nightkind. But what Heather and Dante don’t know is that new enemies lurk in the shadows, closer than they think…and even deadlier than they fear.


    Shadowy government forces have pledged to eliminate all loose ends from Project Bad Seed — and Heather and Dante are at the top of the list. Elsewhere, the Fallen gather in Gehenna, intent on finding their long-awaited savior, the True Blood nightkind whom Lucien DeNoir would die to protect. And a damaged and desperate adversary, with powers as strange and perilous as Dante’s own, plots to use Dante as a pawn in a violent scheme for revenge. But only one of these lethal forces holds the key to Dante’s past — a key that could finally unlock the secret of his birth and the truth of his existence…or destroy him completely.”

    This book blew my mind and rocked my socks off… to put it lightly! I wasn’t envying Ms. Phoenix to have to come up with an even better book than the first in this series, A Rush Of Wings, but she did it in spades. The second book in The Maker’s Song series, In The Blood, carries on with Heather and Dante’s story. It’s even more intricate story-weaving, compelling plot and edge of your seat intensity kept me flipping the pages long into the night.

    The characters are so vivid, the danger is truly of the evil variety and the passion between Heather and Dante practically melts the pages. The writing just oozes atmosphere and pulls you in like a gravitational force. I can hardly stand the wait for the next novel, Beneath The Skin!!

    1. I love the types of books that you review. (I have to admit that I am jealous of the books that you have been sent for review as I have yet to get on a list for these sorts of review copies)..

      I will definitely continue to stop by.
