A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man--vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability--a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence--a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness . . . and pleasure beyond imagining. A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed--and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata's powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she is forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata's life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond--and a passion that could save or doom them both forever. . . .
So I promised myself not to read a whole series in 1 week and I am sticking thru it, eventhough Veil of Midnight was so good. Renata has so many flaws (aren't we all) the number one is being stubborn like hell. For a human she has this special power. She send some sort of a vibration/waves on vampires' minds that can either kill them or make them somewhat weaker for a few moments. And then I later found out that her kind is actually called a Breedmate. Women who has this crescent shape birthmark. Very rare. Also special for the Breed males, as they are the only ones who can carry their children. The down part was the book didn't really explained where she got her powers and all that which I would really wanted to know. The love story between her and Nikolai was cliche Vampire-human love, over protective, sexy and contains hot provocative images of their sexual encounter. The action weren't that many and I hated the ending, I feel like Lara Adrian had rush the ending after the rescue of Mira. It is very hard- I tell you not to buy the first 4 books but a promise is a promise. This is an adult book because of the sexual content. Hand off for teens.
