Amedeo is Cruxim, a mysterious, immortal fallen angel. Destined to seek redemption as a vampire hunter, he quenches his insatiable hunger on vampire blood. But when the object of his passion, the novice nun Joslyn, is turned into a vampire and enters a vampire coven, Amedeo’s worlds collide. Shattered by the loss of his beloved, he vows to rid the world of vampires once and for all, even if it means destroying Josyln in the process.

A Paranormal Game of Cat and Mouse
Joining Amedeo on his quest to rid the world of the undead is Sabine. Half-woman, half-lioness, she is a Sphinx, a Guardian who has protected humans from vampires since the dawn of time. Yet Sabine comes to this fight pursued by her own enemies. An evil scientist, Dr. Claus Gandler, knows the secret of Sabine’s mythological past, vowing to torment her for eternity or destroy her forever.

Immortal Ever After
Captured by the evil doctor, Amedeo and Sabine are paraded as sideshow freaks in the Circus of Curiosities. Only vampire Joslyn has the power to intercede. Will she prove Amedeo’s redemption, or his destruction?.


I enjoyed reading this book. I have never heard of a Cruxim but it is a new and different concept for me and I enjoyed it. Also Sabine is a sphinx and that is a creature that is not usually in the books either. I can’t wait to read the second one to find out what happens next and the revenge that will play out.

The author really knows how to write villians in this story. Bertran, the vampire is sick and twisted. There are no strong, dark, romantic vampires in this book. I loved to hate Bertran as well as Gandler. Gandler is a mad scientist who loves to experiment on people as well as supernatural creatures. When he becomes part of the supernatural community the torture and experiments are taken to new heights. There were a lot of twists and turns in this story and the plot continues into the next book. I can’t wait to see where it takes us.

The story was original and it had a lot of action. There were a few parts that were a little slow moving for me. I loved how the author was able to bring what was usually mortal enemies and have them work together to resolve the conflicts the characters encounter. I will be reading the next in the series.
