Opening line: Pandra Parthen crumpled to her knees with a hiss, clutching at the bloody slash in her stomach, pain burning through every vein in her body.
Tortured by a power-hungry Fey father, Pandra Parthen lashes out one fateful night and inflicts an unspeakable cruelty on Vârcolac warrior Thomal Costache, unknowingly binding herself to the vamp for life. Now she is stuck forever with a man consumed by the need for revenge. Thomal remains entrenched in rage while over time Pandra grows to want a real marriage. But when she is unable to break through his forbidding walls, she seeks to release him from their bond…and the only way she can do that is through her own death.
One of the most dangerous of the Vârcolac warriors, Mixed-blood vampire Thomal Costache oozes sex appeal on the outside while concealing darkness within. His obsessive fury is only shaken by Pandra’s imminent death, when he realizes he’s been ruled by anger for reasons far deeper than her abuse. But now Pandra is trapped where no one has ever escaped, and Thomal will have to call on all his fighting skills to save her. Dying is a given, but he’ll risk everything to get what he wants above all else: a second chance.

Such a Great Series - Love the Characters
The whole series is wonderful but this one is the best, so far. I laughed out loud and I cried too. I love these characters. I am soooo looking forward to the next installment.
Controversial and very well done- WOW
This is by far the best of the series so far. It packs a huge punch from the very beginning sucking you into the world and into the characters' heads immediately. It sent chills up my spine and I had to read a few scenes more than once - THATS how intense it is. Tracy beautifully guides the reader through heartbreaking and maddening situations and shows us that just because there is a light at the end of the tunnel doesn't mean all wounds will be healed by the time we reach it! But there's hope! Very nicely done and I cannot wait for the next one!!!!
Wonderful PNR writer
This is the third book of the "community" series. This story is a little darker than the first two. It helps to read this one last as we get a better picture do Pandra from previous stories. She is majorly messed up in the head from her evil dad and Thomal and she have a lot to work through, but have patience for a happily ever after.
Nyko and Faith's story is just as complicated but not quite as dark.
There is a some sexual abuse in this book (specifically speaking, rape) so if you are sensitive to that please be aware. I think the author handled it pretty well. It definitely goes with the story, not gratuitous.
This author builds a great world. I'm looking forward to the next story. Shon needs a happy ending too.
