The hour when dreams turn into nightmares...
Hosted by the Contessa della Trieste, an opulent Carnevale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn for American book critic Jordan Riley. As festivity turns into frenzy, Jordan is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a wolf. But was the mayhem she witnessed - the blood, the fangs, the screams - truly just entertainment, or something far more sinister?
And pleasure beckons from beyond...
From a deconsecrated Venetian church to a secret society in New Orleans, Jordan is led on a nightmare journey to the razor’s edge of reality. Her mysterious savior is always a shadow behind her, both tormenting and tantalizing her, as Jordan discovers a world of predators and survivors, a new order of vampires - and an eternal hunger that threatens to consume her.

If this author could actually write, this could have been a good book. The premise had good bones, the background of Venice beautiful and intriguing, but, the story was very weak. The heroine was written as dumb as dirt and not too likable, bad combo. She did dumb shit that even a B movie screamer wouldn't try, over and over, never learning from the previous experience. DUH!! The only part I enjoyed was Ragnor's background story, like Lucien's story in the previous book. Otherwise, that one was pretty silly also. I am sending this book back for a refund, nuff if enough!
CHARACTERS WERE UNAPPEALING & INCONSISTENT. STORY STRUCTURE WAS CHOPPY AND THE FLASHBACKS DID NOT HELP THE STORY LINE ...ONLY FILLED MORE PAGES.
It will be a long while before I am willing to spend time on another story by this author.
Yes...her voice was the only good feature.
One can only hope it was a shadow writer that can be fired. I have read other books by this author and find this story a severe disappointment.
