Rashel Jordan lost her mother to a golden-eyed vampire at the age of five—and just barely saved herself by her wits. She’s grown up to the age of seventeen as a vampire hunter—the best. But when a group of hunters captures Quinn and decides to torture him, Rashel feels something in her soul twist. Left alone with Quinn, she goes along with her mad impulse and allows him to escape. But Quinn, a vampire with one of the darkest reputations in the Night World warns her not to expect him to return the favor. Nevertheless, when Rashel gets herself chosen for a bloodfeast and finds that Quinn is in charge of gathering girls for the dark ceremony! Enemies—and soulmates—what will happen during their final fight?

This one is my current favorite out of the Night World series at current. I love the main character, Rashel, for who she is and what she's been through. We know that there are numerous vampire hunter books, and some of them are what they are meant to be: stories of people who are strong, courageous, hunting vampires to save people, and people with a passion for whatever they do. But then, there are some stories that are obnoxious, and I am happy to say that this story fits in the first catagory. It was like I knew--really knew--Rashel and understood everything she was going through. She isn't an animal. She knows that it is wrong to torture vampires when you kill them--she has common sense unlike some of the other grief-stricken vampire hunters. And that is what I like about Rashel. She is witty, strong, and has a good head on her shoulders. She has a purpose. But I think that is what made her let Quinn go. She knew better than the other hunters--and it didn't hurt that he was her soulmate. So, I couldn't possibly think about shunning her for falling in love with a vampire. Especially when it is Quinn. I absolutely adore Quinn. This story really shows the plot of the Night World: forbidden love, really. A vampire and a human shows something so wrong. Unknown to the world. And it just makes it more weird and outrageous when these two people are natural enemies. It just shows you that love can--as much as it is cliche--overcome anything.
