After a series of girls are ritualistically murdered on the cold streets of Philadelphia, seasoned detective, Sydney Willows, is forced to work with sexy, alpha vampire, Kade Issacson. While working the case, Sydney finds herself inexplicably drawn to Kade, fighting the passion she feels towards him. Kade, determined to solve the case and mete out justice, is captivated by the independent, fiery detective. As he attempts to protect her from a very real murderer, Kade grows concerned that the beautiful, but very human detective, could easily end up dead should she tangle with supernatural forces that are beyond her control.
The investigation leads them into a dark and dangerous world, deep in the heart of New Orleans, where together, they search for the perpetrators of the Voodoo killings. Sydney soon becomes the target of the killer and ends up fighting for her life and love in the Big Easy. Will she eventually give into the intoxicating desire she feels for Kade if she makes it out alive?
The book has two of my favorite things at the moment: a serial killer investigation and vampires. It was pretty good for a new series and now I have this debut author on my watch list.
During the book we follow detective Sydney and the vampire Kade. At this reality the vampires and other supernatural beings are know to the population and they have a special police to investigate their crimes called P-CAP.
Kade was called by a friend to investigate a few mysteries happening in Philadepia and at his first night in the city he met Sydney on the street and didn’t know they would work together. Sydney has a big problem with trusting the supernaturals of any kind after being attacked a few years back.
So the first death brought these two together and now Sydney has to work with a vamp that makes her tingle everywhere. It’s kinda interesting to now what these two are felling, because the sensations are new to both of them, since Sydney never had a serious relationship were she loved another person deeply and Kade has lived far too long but never really found his soul mate.
I loved how protective Kade was but at the same time he accepted how strong and capable Sydney was and he never just used her. Sydney is struggling with her new feelings and trying to wrap her mind around the fact that a vampire is making her happy and meddling in her life at the same time.
The investigation was a very good fact that showed a mystic side of New Orleans and the Voodoo religion. Loved how the deaths were explained and how it helped to understand the connections with the past. It was a great book and now I believe the new is about Luca.
