Description-



  • Sixteen-year-old Aden Stone has had a hell of a week. He's been:

    Tortured by angry witches. Hypnotized by a vengeful fairy. Spied on by the most powerful vampire in existence. And, oh, yeah, killed--twice.

    His vampire girlfriend might have brought him back to life, but he's never felt more out of control. There's a darkness within him, something taking over...changing him. Worse, because he was meant to die, death now stalks him at every turn. Any day could be his last.

    Once upon a time, the three souls trapped inside his head could have helped him. He could have protected himself. But as the darkness grows stronger, the souls grow weaker--just like his girlfriend. The more vampire Aden becomes, the more human Victoria becomes, until everything they know and love is threatened.

    Life couldn't get any worse. Could it?

Excerpts-

  • From the book



    Aden Stone stared down at the girl sleeping on the rocky dais. Long hair the color of a wintry midnight, dark yet glimmering like the moonlight on snow, spilled over slender shoulders. Spiky black lashes cast shadows over high, model–sharp cheekbones. Lush pink lips glistened with a sheen of moisture.

    He'd watched her lick those lips several times, and he knew. Even lost to slumber as she was, she scented something delicious and craved a taste.

    Taste... Yes...

    Her skin was snow–white yet constantly flushed a deep rose in all the right places. Not one flaw did she possess. Not a single line or wrinkle—even though she was over eighty years old.

    Young, for her kind.

    She wore a tattered black robe that draped from just under her arms to the tips of her toes. Or would have, if she hadn't rucked the material up one of her legs. The slender limb was bent and angled outward. A feast for his gaze, perhaps even an I–want–you–to–drink–from–the–vein–in–my–thigh invitation.

    He should resist.

    He couldn't resist.

    She was the most beautiful female he'd ever seen. Fragile–looking, dainty. Like a priceless piece of art in the one and only museum he'd ever toured. The curator had slapped his hand for trying to touch something he shouldn't.

    No need to guard this one, he thought with a small smile. She could protect herself, snapping a man's neck with a single twist of her wrist.

    She was a vampire. His vampire. His sickness and his cure.

    Aden placed one of his knees on the makeshift bed. The T–shirt that stretched underneath the girl, cushioning her ever so slightly, snagged underneath his weight and pulled tight, rolling her in his direction. She didn't moan or utter a breathy sigh as a human might have done. She was quiet, eerily so. Her expression remained the same: serene, innocent...trusting.

    You shouldn't do this.

    He was going to do this.

    He wore a pair of ripped, bloodstained jeans. The same jeans he'd worn the night of their first date. The night his entire world changed. She wore the robe and nothing else. Sometimes their clothing was the only thing that kept them from doing more than drinking from each other.

    Drinking from each other. Or "feeding." So mild a word for what happened. He would never purposely hurt her, but when the madness came upon him—hell, when the madness came upon her—affection was forgotten. They became animals.

    You shouldn't do this, what was left of his conscience repeated.

    One more drink, and I'll leave her alone.

    That's what you said last time. And the time before that. And the time before that.

    Yeah, but I mean it this time. He hoped.

    Once, he would have been talking to the three souls trapped inside his head. But they weren't inside his head anymore, they were inside hers, and he'd reverted to talking to himself. At least until the monster awoke. An honest to God monster, prowling through his conscious, roaring, desperate for blood. The monster the sleeping girl had inadvertently given him, the monster responsible for his new favorite sport—jugular tapping. Then he didn't talk to anyone at all.

    Down...down Aden leaned until his chest flattened against the vampire's. He placed his hands at her temples and balanced his weight. The tips of their noses were a mere whisper apart, yet he wanted to be closer to her. Always closer.

    He applied more pressure to his left hand, the soft strands of her hair pulling as tight as the T–shirt had done, causing her head to loll in that direction and...

    August 15, 2011

    Sluggish pacing and an overwhelming number of characters will once again test fans' devotion to this paranormal-romance series.

    When readers last saw Aden Stone, he'd been turned into a vampire by his girlfriend, vampire princess Victoria, in a desperate attempt to save him after being stabbed by his best friend Mary Ann's ex-boyfriend Tucker, who was being controlled by Victoria's father, Vlad the Impaler. Yes, really. The soap opera continues as Aden and Victoria nearly kill each other by cross-feeding their blood back and forth. As Aden's vampiric powers increase, Victoria becomes more human, losing her mind-controlling voice, teleportation abilities and diamond-hard skin—but gaining empathy and a truly tender heart. Meanwhile, Mary Ann has fled to Tulsa, Okla., (demonic Tucker and devoted shape-shifter Riley following close behind) to research the three supernaturally powered souls living in Aden's consciousness, hoping to purge them from his mind. Both Aden and Mary Ann face a variety of brutal vengeance-seekers, including Victoria's long-lost brother Sorin, witches, fairies and, once again, Vlad the Impaler. Showalter's strength is in playing with conventions of various paranormal mythologies. Plotting and cast management, not so much: The pace here might charitably be called stately, while her cast of characters threatens to spill out of these overstuffed pages.

    A major last-chapter twist will either delight readers or drive them, finally, around the bend. (Paranormal romance. 14 & up)
