When I chose this book to read, I will admit that I was not 100% sure that this was the book for me. Daywalkers, Nightwalkers, & Sentinels...there all..Show More » here. The book opens with an action scene and continues on a steady pace until the end. This is so much more than a "gay vampire" story. Ahsanuddin's tale consists of romance, adventure, thrills, excitement, terror, science fiction with a human twist, and toss in a little space and you have the makings for a fantastic story! Redemption, hope, love, and growth...the elements needed to fully explore the very act of living. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series to find out what happens to Nick, Jeremy, Scott, Toby, the Armistice and the slew of other characters that enter into this realm of wonder. And on a side note, to discover that Ahsanuddin is a hematologist...yep, a blood doctor! Awesome to the 10th degree! The narration of David Stifel was fantastic. He brought the story to life... adding depth and distinction to the characters of this tale. Enjoy the journey!
