He had once been a warrior of the Light, one of the revered Paladin. A protector. But now he lives in darkness, and the shadows are his sanctuary. Every day is a struggle to overcome the bloodlust. Especially the day Karissa shows up at his doorstep.


She is light and bright and everything beautiful—despite her scratches and torn clothes. Every creature of the night is after her. So is every male Paladin. Because Karissa is the last female of their kind. But she is his. He may not have a soul, but he can't deny his heart.
My Thoughts...
I really loved this book and the world that Tes has created, the band of warriors that form the Paladins all seem extremely intriguing and I can't wait to read more books in this series about the other warriors.

Roland was once a Paladin warrior, but after being tricked he was unwillingly turned into a vampire, and so he has mostly shut himself away from society, apart from night time when he is out fighting the vampires, demons and merkers, he is still loyal to the Paladins although they don't extend the same courtesy to him anymore.

His only friend left of the warriors is Logan, he is the son of the Paladin leader and one of the last pure line of Angels, and his Father and the other Paladin's believe that Logan killed Roland 94 years ago.

One night Logan brings a woman named Karissa to his apartment and leaves her there, of course once she wakes up and discovers that Roland is a vampire she's not exactly happy and tries to escape, what ensues had me laughing to myself, Roland who had just gotten his apartment the way he liked it everything new and clean, is destroyed by Karissa while he slept, but he discovers that she is not exactly human by the way she can transport herself from place to place and that she is the only remaining Paladin female left and he realises that she is also his bond mate.

As with all books in the paranormal genre we have our main baddie, in this book we have a few Christos who was the vampire that turned Roland, Ganelon a former Paladin who went rogue after the death of his mate years before and they both work for Lucifer himself. 

There are quite are a couple of characters in this book that I felt stole the show as it were, Valin a Paladin warrior and Gabrielle 'Gabbie' another vampire that Christos turned who is friends with Roland and refuses to drink blood until Christos forces her too, I have a feeling that both Valin and Gabbie will end up together in future books and I think I know who Gabbie's father is and I hope it's not long till we discover who that is.

I loved this book and I look forward to the next book in the series.

I give this 4/5.
