Sophie Galen is an advice columnist whose work leaves her neck-deep in other people's problems. Thanks to her compassion, her gut instinct, and her magnetic charm, Sophie really knows how to attract little black clouds.
Marek Thurzo is no little black cloud; he's a maelstrom. Marek is Demivampire, a race with the potential to evolve into vampire. A warrior who's taken his share of spiritual damage, he hovers dangerously close to destruction.
He seeks salvation. She's driven to save him. But what if he can't be saved?
Sympathy for his plight becomes true empathy as Sophie's hidden nature is revealed. Marek suspects she may be one of the Sophia, oracle and redemption of the damned Demivampire. She alone can turn back the evolutionary clock.
All she needs is the courage to face her fears. Can she save him from falling?

Probably not better as I did find the areas explaining the world of the Demimonde and the connection to Egyptian Mythology tougher to follow, but definitely equal in good storytelling.
That's tough. The ending blew my mind and left me sobbing and heartbroken while eager for more. But I found the car chase exciting and loved the times with Marick's brother and Sophie.
That would be the last scene of the book. and I can't say more or I'll spoil it. But yeah, the best and will stick with me.
Okay, I just laughed because yes, I had an extreme reaction. I've reread certain scenes over for the way they grabbed my emotions.Yes, I laughed a little and later, cried a lot. More than one tissue if you get into your books like I do.
This is part of a trilogy and it is best that the reader go in knowing that this book ends with the knowledge that it will pick up in book two and this isn't a standalone.The worldbuilding is fresh and the paranormal side is darker and gritty. The romance is sweet and slow burning though very sensual. There is a hint of competition for the hero.Definitely recommend this to Urban Fantasy lovers.
I received my copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
I'll be the first to say I love a heroine with spunk, and this girl has it in spades! I was listening to this book at home and even my 13 yr old daughter got wrapped up in sophie's sassy ways. She goes through hell and still has her spirit. I love the way she stands up for herself and doesn't let anyone run over her. I was so wrapped up in this story I fell asleep listening to it. Sass, love, heartbreak, this one has it all without raunchy details which works for the story as you can focus on the characters and all that happens to them.
