Rating: You Need to Read
Reviewed By: Janelle
Dreams often reflect hidden desires . . . even if they are terrifying. Michael Malone, a unique creature of the night, has taken down three evil sorcerers. He’s not entirely successful. Faced with eternal suffering, a compassionate soul helps this Champion create an intricate fantasy until he can be rescued by the Georgian Circle. His tale of passion and suspense is tinged with many truths. Eternal devotion to a Guardian of Souls and a troubled teenager forces this mystically enhanced vampire to dream of survival. He yearns to be in Alana’s arms. He vows to protect Lukas, his mortal son. As he confronts his guilty, undead life his imagination runs wild. But Michael begins to lose hope, believing that there is no such thing as redemption. Why did the commanding Champion jeopardize his own immortality? Michael Malone has two very good reasons. One is revenge and the other is love.
This is a great story! The only thing that keeps it from being excellent, is a lack of focus. In the first 50 pages we are introduced to over a dozen characters and given the run down of their past and how they are connected; all before we even meet the main character. The scenes constantly shift between past and present without any flow. And the narration jumps from third to second to first person, as well as from character to character sometimes with no warning.
That said, I am amply impressed. I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out which parts of this story were the reality and which were the dreams. The world he creates for himself in his dreams is vivid, detailed, and as real to the reader as it is to him. They also give him a chance to learn and grow into more than just a weapon.
I recommend this book to those who are looking for something a bit deeper in their romance.
