Publisher's Summary

The ultimate battle. The ultimate love.
For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain's Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.
Forced to return home after death takes a member of her family, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. As a lone hunter apart from her team, Jenn is isolated and at risk. She craves the company of her fighting partner, Antonio: his protection, his reassurance, his touch. But a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.
Then Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust herself - and her heart.

This book is a continuation of a story begun in the Eternal Kiss, an anthology of vampire stories. Vampires have taken over the human world and many countries have bowed to their rule. There are still isolated pockets of resistance and this novel follows the adventures of six hunters. The book spends a lot of time filling in the backgrounds of the characters, and while these back stories are interesting in themselves, they prevent the book from moving at a fast pace. The main heroine is, in my view, rather a weak character. In fact, there is no real character development at all. The team do not get drawn closer together by their missions, which are a succession of failures. Many things aren't explained and nothing is really resolved at the end, which leaves the reader with a feeling of disattisfaction. The book is well written, and the Authors have clearly put a lot of time into researching the different languages and cultures of the characters, which comes across particularly well in their speech. The book is also superbly narrated. While the scene has been nicely set for the second book in the series, the question remains, is the listener's curiosity enough to make them pick up the next book?
