|As a dhampir -- half human, half vampire -- Dorina 'Dory' Basarab hasn't had an easy life. To maintain her sanity and to stay alive she's been taking more and more risks. However, her latest assignment doesn't end so well. She ends up in a lab with no memory. Furthermore, in order to learn the truth of who was behind her abduction could result in far worse since just about everybody wouldn't care so much if Dory was dead.
The plot of this book was very complex because Dory faced an uphill battle whether she remembered what had happened to her or not. As a dhampir, no one likes her but tolerates her because of who her father is. The dialogue was enthralling and drew me in from the very beginning because of Dory's growing relationship with Louis-Cesare and the fact that she'd lost her memory and the only way to keep her alive was to learn the truth behind who had taken her and why. Also, the story delved into Dory's past and revealed why her relationship with her father is so at odds. The sex scenes between Dory and Louis-Cesare were hot, even when she tried to deny that there couldn't be anything between them because dhampirs and vampires don't mix. What I like so much about Dory is that she's willing to do anything for those she cares about even when her life is at stake.
Overall, Ms. Chance has done another incredible job of penning a book in this series with a heroine that makes it a habit to fight for the underdogs and triumph over most, if not all. If you've read the other books in this series, don't miss out on reading this one. And even if you haven't, make sure you grab a copy but don't forget to read the other two first starting with Midnight's Daughter.
