Alas this book was well It invokes the most ambivalent of emotions in a reader while on the one hand it is well written and oddly charming on the other hand it was problematic stupid and the characters were unsympathetic The two forces warred with each other to a bloody stalemate leaving the reader in a kind of exhausted state of meh But let me start at the beginningSebastian is a vampire; old and restless she is haunted by memories of the rejection of her human love and the necessity of that lovers' destruction Driven by the idea of existing peacefully with humans she has funded research which would allow vampires to live without feeding and walk under direct sunlight Alas however the search so far has been fruitlessAlex Taylor a brilliant young doctor and an expert in human disorders of the blood has been hand selected to complete an internship at a research facility located outside of Chicago Alex' genius might be the push that the research needs to achieve success Complicating matters is that Sebastian falls for her and her for Sebastian Meanwhile even the attempted research is enough to send shockwaves through the vampire community and an old lover of Sebastian's is sent to either stop or eliminate this The convoluted tangles of such politics is wearisome enough to read and this review will pass over the recitation Suffice to say that Chicago is awash in a river of bloodless corpsesSo here's the thing and take a seat because this might take a wee while This research Seabass has going on has been in the pipe for nearly 100 years and in that time some of the most intelligent scientists of each age has bent their back to this problem Alex literally fucking solves it in two tries after she is given access to the lab and it takes less than an evening What Let's just pause here and cringe a little at how science doesn't work like that Speaking of science not working like that the research done into hemophilia for this novel was less than substandard it was downright incompetent Further the idea that a vaccine which was designed to be injected as a tightly controlled mixture could also be just as effective taken orally from someone else' blood made me throw up my hands in exasperation It simply broke my willing suspension of disbeliefAfter all this moaning why give the book so many stars Well I liked it Sure I hated it as well but I liked it It was kind of so bad it was desperately reaching for good I give it three stars

Lenged and the battle for supremacy among the hierarchy begins Enter Leigh Sebastian's lover and companion through the centuries Will she be Sebastian's comrade or nemesis Will Leigh aide Sebastian in her uest or hold Sebastian away from the dawn. Instant love two dimensional characters Even the liberal sex couldn't help this story as there was no emotional connection with the 2 main characters This felt like a really poor episode of Lost Girl I would have called bullshit and either fast forwarded to any juicy bits or just deleted I completed this book I paid for it so I was damn well going to finish it I feel tired and hope that my next read is much better
