We are once again reunited with all the characters we met in book one, Simon and Ben are living happily together, Lucas is still irritating and Forge is in a very bad spot and trying to keep it together because he has no doubt that his soulmate is near.
Young people are showing up dead and killed in a very bizarre and vicious way so Forge and Lucas are once again after a killer or killers. At the latest crime scene Forge sees a man running and knows immediately it is his soulmate so he goes running after him. A man in goggles dressed in a wannabe superhero outfit and falling into the lake and almost drowning.
His soulmate is a vampire but seems to have gotten his vampire info from books because he is convinced that if he removes the goggles he will go blind and warns Forge to stay away from him because he is dangerous and has no idea that Forge is a vampire also. Forge’s first thought is would anyone blame him if he killed his soulmate but a vampire has no control of his hormones when he is near the one meant for him.
For centuries Declan has been Forge’s lover, best friend and mentor and he knows that they are not soulmates but he loves him and doesn’t want a soulmate especially a clumsy new vampire with no idea of how to be one. If things aren’t strange enough when the goggles are removed his soulmate is none other than Blair the hacker that has worked with them for five years but only through the internet. Blair was drawn to where Forge is without having any idea why.
I have to admit that I fell in love with Blair as soon as he arrived on the scene, he is loving, smart and clueless. Forge has no choice but to bond with Blair and Blair is well aware of the fact that Forge loves Declan so how is that going to work. Declan is away and tries to convince Forge that we are all capable of loving more than one person but Blair and Forge have an uphill battle to HEA.
The mystery of who is doing the killing is full of violence and suspense and was an integral part of the story as well as Blair and Forge’s maybe relationship. I love the characters in these books and highly recommend reading them in order since the characters all appear in each one giving the reader an update as to what is going on in their lives.
