Even by vampire standards, Reaper is a loner, and his current mission to destroy a gang of rogue bloodsuckers is definitely a one-vamp job. Then fate takes a hand, and before he knows it hes surrounded by a ragtag crew of misfit helpers, in this first of Shaynes new Wings in the Night trilogy. Original.
The latest from bestseller Shayne (Prince of Twilight) is an interesting, inventive tale of vampires with a world that's almost too fully realized, occasionally suffering from plot overload. Before he became a vampire, Reaper worked for the CIA; now he works solo, as a hired assassin. Reaper's latest commission is the rogue vampire Gregor, who along with his followers is leaving a trail of blood-drained corpses that may, if unchecked, reveal the carefully hidden world of vampires to the blissfully unsuspecting mortal masses. Complicating Reaper's mission is Seth, a newly turned vampire he's compelled to bring along on his assignment. Unfortunately for the self-proclaimed "lone wolf," that opens the door to other unwanted partners: Roxy, a Wicca healer; the vampiress Topaz; and a shape-shifter called Vixen, each of whom has her own reasons for wanting Gregor stopped. Shayne crafts a convincing world, tweaking vampire legends just enough to draw fresh blood. Though her attention to a number of subplots can frustrate, they'll also suck in an audience for the inevitable sequel. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
