Alright, I know your all thinking another vampire book. You guys know I have a weakness for vampires. At first glance Star follows a familiar pattern. Vampires with respect for human life, they hunt animals, they have venom, and they posses all the super human powers of speed and mind control. But keep on with it, because that where the similarities end.
In this book the kick ass vampire lead is female. That right there sets the tone for what this book covers. Not only is star a covert CIA agent, she has been around since the time of the Revolutionary War. So you get great flashback historical scenes, and lots of action. She is conflicted at times, and her love and tenderness for Zac from the get go sets the stage for an authentic love story.
You also have to pay attention. Who you might think has Star's back and is on her side, gets thrown off course. Enemy's become friends and friends turn on you. Star is faced with discovering not only who leads "The Others", but who is betraying her. Can Zac and Star make it as a couple? The questions are many in this fast paced book. Star proves that you can keep a vampire book fresh and original by combining two of my favorite themes, historical fiction and romance. You can't go wrong adding this one to your romance reads for the month. I can't wait for the rest of the books in this series.
