Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The vampire sects are at war—and war among vampires is fought not with weapons, but with minds.

My name is Ariella Montero, and I know a secret. Telling it will change everything.

Half-human and half-vampire, Ari confronts the darker sides of vampirism, and herself, as the sects deploy new technologies to battle for influence and power.

But beyond these challenges lie greater risks: Aris relationship with Neil Cameron, the first vampire to run for the U.S. presidency, must be kept under wraps from even those she trusts most. When scandal inevitably erupts, Ari is forced to face the consequences of her actions, learning the hard way that love demands delicate negotiations between memory and desire.

Review:

"The third in Hubbard's 'Ethical Vampire' series (after The Year of Disappearances) will bewilder new readers. A contradiction is revealed (though not explained) in the preface: half-vampire protagonist Ariella Montero was born 15 years ago but this year 'turned twenty-two.' Ari hopes, through an injection of Septimal, to age seven years, becoming more age-appropriate for Neil Cameron, a presidential candidate and vampire, but as she pursues her plan her life changes in unimaginable ways. The uneasy truce among three vampire factions threatens to break apart, with Ari an unwilling participant. Two renditions of a vampire folktale and her Professor of Japanese Culture's exploration of the concept of wabi-sabi (imperfect beauty) engage the reader, while most of the paranormal aspects do not. Even fans of Hubbard's cerebral and ethereal prose may find the book a slow and difficult read." Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
