Elise Chase has lost everything, her mate and her son were both the victims of Rogue Vampires. She now roams the streets of Boston ridding the city of the Minions of the evil ones while fighting the voices her empathic powers cause her to hear.

Tegan is one of the Order, a warrior determined to rid the world of the Rogues and their Minions. He tells himself that he does not care if Elise gets herself killed on her quixotic mission but keeps getting drawn back to her.

Marek, the leader of the Rogue vampires, is determined to start a new order with himself at the head. To do this, he must eliminate the warriors of the Order, including their leader, his brother Lucan, and his former comrade-in-arms, Tegan. A woman is also causing problems in the form of the deaths of several of his Minions and the theft of an essential document.

I do not know how I missed this series, and I will not miss another one of these books. The characters are very compelling. Tegan is dark, alpha, and very sexy and Elise is determined, strong, and beautiful. The plot is full of dangerous situations, vivid characters, and hot love scenes. Each member of the Order and their Breedmates become vibrantly real to the reader. I especially found the Breedmates interesting, they each have qualities that complement their mates and help the others function as a whole. Marek and his Minions are chilling and vicious in the extreme. I found that even though I started in the middle of the series, I had no problem understanding the author’s version of vampire culture. This book is impossible to put down and I cannot wait until the next one comes out.
