Book 14 in Maggie Shayne's Bestselling Wings in the Night Series
THE FINAL BATTLE BETWEEN HUMANS AND VAMPIRES IS AT HAND
According to ancient prophecy, there's only one chance to avert the annihilation of the Undead. Twins James and Brigit Poe, part human, part vampire, believe that they are that chance. In fact, the key lies with the reclusive and mortal scholar Lucy Lanfair—and Lucy's heart lies with James.
Against his own moral code, James draws Lucy into the war between vampires and humans, hoping to turn the tide, but the truth is it's a war no one can win. Lucy knows this, and she knows something else, as well: only by saving James from his own inner darkness can she save the world from being torn apart and, in the process, ensure herself a future with the man she loves.

Back into the good stuff!
I am so happy that I stuck with this series. After taking a small dip and changing directions, it seems we're back on track with the vamps I love. Coming back to the original group of vampires was something I really looked forward to doing. While we get a brief glimpse at Vixen and some of her crew (maybe more to come from them later?), we really get to see Rhiannon and her completely awesome panther, the twin half-breeds, and all the rest of my old favorites!!
As the world realizes that vampires might actually exist, things to to hell in quite a large hand basket very quickly. Senseless burning of both vampires and non-vampires, wide spread fear, and a lack of understanding. At the center of it all are James, his twin sister Brigit, and a strangely captivating human named Lucy. As they work together to save as many vampires as they can and translate an ancient prophecy Lucy and James become quite close.
There is a lot of distrust floating around in this one, and I loved it. I know I sure wouldn't trust some random vampire the first day I found out they actually existed. Their slow building of trust and friendship was amazing. At heart they are so much alike, but how they react to things is just so different. A great couple to see grow closer.
There is also plenty of action as DPI is back in full force and preparing their final blow. We also get to meet a new player in the game that really surprised me. He is fascinating and I wonder what is going to happen with him.
Lots of great things are starting up again, and I really need to get my hands on the next one soon!
