Lovers forever—or enemies to the death?
Sasha Ivanov was born to be wild. A vampire party girl, she stalks the L.A. clubs at night. Dancing. Drinking. Indulging her darkest appetites. Never sated, she’s always looking for more: more danger, more excitement, more blood. But when she enters a supernatural fight club—and is tethered to her mortal enemy—Sasha realizes she’s playing the most dangerous game of all…
Ewan Brún was born to kill vampires. A powerful berserker and unbeaten champion, he doesn’t need a weapon to be deadly. He is the weapon. But when his soul becomes captive to the most beautiful vampire he’s ever seen, he is all but powerless. He cannot resist Sasha—and cannot fight his desires. Is their love strong enough to defeat the gathering forces of darkness that threatens to destroy them both?
“The chemistry is electric.”
—San Francisco Book Reviews on The Last True Vampire
Baxter's solid sixth Last True Vampire paranormal (after The Lost Vampire) employs a supernatural star-crossed lovers scenario. Berserker Ewan Br n spent hundreds of years killing vampires, compelled by his clan's leader and the Sortiari, a fanatic bent on the destruction of the vampire and dhampir races. Now the berserkers have broken free of the Sortiari's bond. Ewan wants to further separate from the clan, tired of living hand-to-mouth and without control over his future. He's taken by surprise when he meets Sasha Ivanov, a recently turned vampire, and manages to resist his ingrained urge to kill her. Sasha is in distress because the vampire she admired and loved for years turned out not to be her soul mate. Seeking excitement and mental escape, she hooks up with Ewan. As they meet on the sly, their connection becomes evident, leading them to find a way to live together. Plenty of hot sex scenes will encourage readers to overlook a middling plot.
