Goodreads Blurb:Feared even by her own kind for her mastery of fire, the Nightwalker Mira is summoned by the Coven to take her rightful place as Elder. But with this honor comes grave responsibility—a commitment to the annihilation of the unleashed naturi. For now the foul creatures walk the earth—and neither vampire nor human will survive their horrific onslaught.
A tide of blood is sweeping relentlessly across the European continent, as Mira is dispatched to Budapest for the most devastating test yet of her astonishing powers—and falls into a well-laid trap. With the dark secrets that haunt her growing darker by the hour, she must confront the terrible truth of her past and protect her fragile sanity in the face of unanticipated treachery—a betrayal by her ally, her enemy, her lover…the vampire slayer, Danaus.
Darcy's Review:Finally what I have been waiting for looked to happened in this book. Through out the who series the sexual tension between Mira and Danaus has been increasing with each new book. At times it seems that Danaus has accepted her, but then things happened and he backed away. So I was happy to see that circumstances happened that created a closer bond and more formal relationship between them.
Mira, dealing with the consequences of the last book has to go to Venice to formally claim her seat on the council. During this ceremony Mira was maneuvered into going to Budapest, where she knew a trap was waiting for her. Luckily she had some good allies going with her. While fighting people on all fronts the bad guys use Danaus' white knight complex to build a wedge between him and Mira, causing me to want to throw the book across the room. So much of their relationship is 1 step forward and 5 steps back, and I want it to STOP!!
We also learned more about Mira's past and we meet a new enemy to her, one that is more dangerous than anyone else that she has ever encountered. The same maneuvering that sent her to Budapest causes big repercussions with a big battle at the end, one that will bring exciting changes for the next book!
