This is the sequel to The Recruit and although it isn’t necessary to read them in order I highly recommend doing so. This book follows the characters from book one and the author does an amazing job of bringing the reader up to date. However, you would definitely be missing out on Neil and Albert’s full story by skipping book 1, and they once again are the stars of the show.
Albert is the leader of a faction of highly organized vampires who carefully guard the existence of vampires. Months ago, that he found his blood-mate Neil, aka Phillip. Phillip was dying; to save his life Albert took his choice away and turned him. Now Neil’s ex-boyfriend, Cameron, is causing trouble and possibly revealing the existence of vampires. Cameron saw Neil on one of his deliveries and Neil’s response left Cameron questioning if this man was a look-alike or if his ex was a vampire, a possibility that was further enforced by his new boyfriend, Dennis.
Now Dennis and Cameron will get the choice that Neil didn’t have, whether to be turned. However, in their case not being turned means death. Turning them, even if they accept, is full of problems . Both men have a lot of family and friends they will be leaving behind, and their deaths must be choreographed perfectly. The biggest problem is Dennis who Albert is not sure about but because of his blood-mate is willing to overlook his possible danger to vampires worldwide.
What happens is not for me to reveal but I will say that this book, like book one, told a very full story filled with amazing characters and an entirely different look at vampires. Take my advice and read The Recruit first, you won’t regret it.
