When Claire Danvers learnt that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving student would do: she applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but that garlic may come in handy.
Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure her friends. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home.
This series just keeps getting better and better. I cannot express that enough. I though that after there were so many vampire stories out there that I would lose interest and that is not the case! I just love Rachel Caine's work and her writing skills are amazing!
After Claire Danver's takes up with Amelie by signing up for her protection. Claire's status at school changes, Monica (the most popular girl in school) wants to be her friend. Shane has now become Claire's boyfriend, not just a boy friend anymore. Michael has come out of the closet letting those closest to him, Eve, Shane and Claire know him on a deeper level. He's become one of them, and not just any one of them but also under Amelie's protection.
Claire's parents worry about her, Shane thinks she is nuts for even thinking of allowing the Drama Queen Monica have anything to do with her. Michael has to learn control... Eve just needs to attract the right person for sake of being with the wrong man one too many times...
