Abandoned by his werewolf lover, the only thing Reylan wants is to return to his vampire life of blood and beautiful boys. It’s a solid plan, until his first meal as a single man tries to kill him.

Hoping to free his young would-be assassin from the religious zealots that sent him, Reylan enlists the help of Iain Grieg, a charismatic priest with unsettling knowledge of the night’s secrets.

Surrounded by conflicting agendas and an army fuelled by hate, Reylan fights to secure his future, if he can only trust the mysterious priest and bury the ghosts of the past.

In this third installment of the Arcadia Trust, Reyland is facing life without Jorgas. Reyland continues to live in the gray areas of morality, following his own code of behavior in every facet of his life. And thanks to a fateful choice of dinner, the reader finally gets to see the impacts of the Scimitar of Light in all its glory. When a young priest works his way into the care of the soldier that was to be Rey’s dinner, he also manages to work his way into Rey’s life. The previous losses suffered by Rey have not diminished his snarky sense of humor. And of course the side characters add their own bits of color as well.

This continues the dark themes of the previous books. The action is non-stop. There is a lot going on in this book, to the point of being confusing, particularly towards the end of the book. This is a great series for fans of dark paranormal adventure. Baines sense of timing when it comes to interjecting those light moments is perfection. Reyland’s sense of honor, such as it is, and his grudging ability to care more than he wants to admit, are what pulls the reader into the story. This continues to be a fun series to read and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
