Matheus Taylor didn't ask to be murdered. To be fair, the percentage of people actually asking to be murdered is probably small enough to be safely ignored, but he felt it was worth stating regardless. His life might have been ordinary, but it was his life and he wasn't done with it yet.
Quin didn't care.
A 1,700-year-old Roman, Quintus Livius Saturnius had a different view of morality than most people. Killing Matheus and hijacking his undead existence seemed perfectly acceptable to him.
Now, Matheus spends his nights running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation, and defying a mysterious new threat to the vampires within his city. Not that he set out to do any defying; he just wanted to be left alone. Unfortunately, that was never going to happen.

I wish I could return it!
Sometimes it takes a couple of chapters to get into a book and I usually persist for the sake of having paid for the book but with this book I could not get into the story and have only managed 3 chapters.
Brilliant - new author to me
I loved the ambivalence and the sarcasm,the to and fro of conversation and the way unexpected relationships develop. The scene I enjoyed the most was 'the kiss', this is not a book full sex - there is one kiss and it is long awaited and pleased me a lot. The scene that moved me the most was the scene with Quin in a prison cell and Matheus in hand and leg cuffs talking through an intercom. This is a very different vampire story - I have read a lot and would now count this amongst my top twenty. I can see lots of leads for further books and I will be buying them. As you can tell I really liked it.
