Vampires, Witches, and Intrigue, OH MY!
Shawna is an intriguing heroine with a truly unique lineage. Her father is a psychopathic vampire and the man who wants to protect her is also a vampire with an agenda.
How can you not love the concept, creation, and execution of such an amazing storyline?
Claudy consistently makes you love even her most vile characters. She makes them so evil, that you love to hate them. And she makes the heroes and heroines so amazing, that you wish you could be part of their world.
I am a huge fan, and am slowly addicting my daughter to her work as well!
Thank you once again, Claudy, for delivering an outstanding story. You always keep me salivating for more!

Intriguing first book in the series
This is a really interesting read. There were a lot of eh moments, but plenty of great spots as well. My biggest gripe about this book is it was confused about how much of a romance it wanted to be. Mostly it was a great Urban Fantasy read, with patches of romance. The romance felt awkward in the first half of the book. Too much coming at you, I guess. Later it evens out, but the heat factor is odd.
I loved the mix of legends. There are a lot of great elements here pulled from other paranormal, supernatural and fae legends. Little bit Vamp, little bit Highlander. I loved the marriage of these elements and cannot wait to see where the series leads. There are many pots cooking here, which can also be a touch confusing. You have loads of information to sort through, not always pertinent to the present story. I am sure it will come into play in later books, but right now it was a lot to take in at once.
I loved Shawna and all her sass! She is a great character to read and mostly had her stuff together. Only a few moments where she forgot her common sense at home.
It was great trading POV with the leads and even getting insight into the big bad. It is always great for the reader to be on the inside and know everyone's motivation. It really makes the whole story more engaging.
There is a bit of steam, open bedroom door, but not full on erotic play by play. Plenty of heat though.
The big battle was a little but of a fizzle for me, so much build to have ended with a whimper.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Valerie Gilbert, who is fabulous! I love her voice on this series, a perfect fit. She adds great energy to the story and some very delicious accents as well. I loved listening to her and she keeps the story moving at slower moments. I think this may be my favorite read of hers, so far.
I am eager to see what happens next in the series. There is a yummy Vamp I can not wait to see get a HEA!
