She was seeking revenge. What she found was a vampire who swept her into the darkest depths of passion.
Chicago, Illinois... the windy city. Home to football greats, dinosaurs named Sue, and, when the sun goes down... powerful vampires battling for the right to rule the city and beyond.
Born into slavery, Aden is one of the most powerful vampires in North America, waging war on others of his kind in a struggle to become the next Lord of the Midwest. But in the midst of the deadliest fight of his long life, the ghosts of his past have come back to haunt him. Slavery still exists, and Aden is hellbent on destroying it and the vampires who profit from it.
Sidonie Reid is an investigative reporter in pursuit of the biggest story of her career, until that story costs the life of a friend and Sid realizes she has to do much more than write about it. Intent on bringing down the vampires and their slave network, Sid gains entry to the highest levels of vampire society, where she finds herself confronting the raw sexuality that is Aden.
Caught up in a dark passion that neither can resist, Aden and Sidonie join forces, determined to defeat the old regime and everything it stands for. The dangers are beyond calculation, but the ultimate reward is worth the risk. If they survive..
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:D.B Reynolds is a master storyteller, and Aden does not disappoint! While I didn't love it as much as some of the others in the series, DB has turned writing love scenes into an absolute art, and the growth of the world for this series continues to amaze.
Aden isn't officially Lord of the Midwest, yet. Despite the support from Raphael and the other Lords he still has to prove himself formally. He hasn't had an easy life - from orphan to slave to vampire he's clawed his way to where he is now, and he won't accept anything less than everything.
Sidonie is an investigative reporter looking into the human trafficking ring that the previous vampire lord was running, but things behind the vampire curtain are anything but 'safe', and there are surprises around every turn, including the fascination and attraction she feels for the uber powerful Aden.
As I mentioned, the love scenes in this book were SMOKIN'! Just... wow. I didn't feel the soul deep romantic connection between Aden and Sid that I have with other couples of the ViA series, but it was still wonderful.
I can't wait for Vincent, and I am really looking forward to any shorts that DB puts out next because our mates just keep getting more and more interesting! In addition, as I also mentioned, the story arc just continues to progress and build, and I can't wait to see where D.B takes us with the final outcome of the machinations of Raphael and the other Lords.
Most definitely recommended.
