Revelin Scott is normally pretty easygoing. Even the snide comments of his coworkers that he's nothing but Nikolena's "new dog" don't faze the new enforcier. But when Rev is instructed to dye his hair, change his name, and go undercover, he fears the worst. When he's saddled with a young woman whose brother was one of Vangeline's aberrations, Rev knows the case will be bad. Denice Geron has information he'll need to infiltrate the society, but her disrespect and defiance test his patience to the limit.
Denice's brother Michel, infected with vampire blood, had the strength of will to resist the machinations of the société, and before he was found out and killed, he was able to relay information to his sister. Denice seeks help of the Brotherhood and is passed up the chain of command, but instead of getting what she envisions as the epitome of vampirekind, she gets "Sean Ardwolf," a cocky young vampire who looks more like a debauched rock star than Dracula.
She helps him gain access to the société, but Vangeline is more powerful than anyone imagined, and even Revelin/Sean is drawn into her web of seduction and poisoned by her tainted blood. Denice is his only salvation, but it would mean her death to help him now. A few weeks ago the decision for both would have been easy. Now nothing is easy, no one is to be trusted, and there's no going back.
Revelin must destroy all the vampires and he is forced to accept the help of the mortal woman Deni Geron whose brother was killed by the rogues. When they arrive at their destination, Revelin, with the help of Deni, is able to infiltrate the group, but he finds he is unable to kill the head of the group. Again, he must depend on Deni to help him but if she fails, they will both die.
Revelin Scott was chosen for this job for his supposed immunity to the charms of mortal women yet it is Deni's love for him that will be his salvation. Their co-dependence in the work arena spills over into their personal lives forming a bond that is necessary for the story line to work. IMMORTAL IMAGE is a delightfully refreshing vampire romance that will satisfy any one interested in the nosferatu.
Truer words were never spoken. IMMORTAL IMAGE in the fourth book in Jaye Roycraft's new and wonderfully engaging "Image" series. Set in the dark underworld of the Directorate--a ruling body of powerful vampires who monitor all supernatural activity in the world and delve out justice when needed or required to keep the denizens of the night in line--this is the story of Revelin Scott, the new l' enforcier for the Undead, a coveted position he inherited from Alek Dragovich (last seen in AFTERIMAGE) who retired his position to Scott after becoming enamored with a human and staging his own death in order to achieve true peace in his life.
Revelin Scott isn't your typical vampire. No opera capes and fluently accented voice is his to wield. Revelin doesn't drip with seductive power or attack people without reason. Revelin likes shag hairdos and outfits that would make mortal eyes bleed. Revelin likes in-your-face, one-on-one action in every situation. Rev is the James Bond of the Undead, a soldier and secret agent enamored more with his job than with any female. Yet it is his oh-so-unconventional nature which makes Rev so endearing. Revelin is bitter, laid-back, a tough-hearted warrior who likes nothing better than doing things his way and getting them done with "no fuss, no muss" (tm). Revelin is also (theoretically) immune to feminine charms. So when Nikolena, Directress of the Directorate, saddles him with an assignment to disassemble a new and dangerous societe which is threatening the uneasy balance between humans and vampires, he takes such a responsibility to heart in his typical Type-B-personality stride. He knows what he has to do and he knows how to get it done.Read more ›
Trouble is brewing in Baton Rouge. A dangerous, not to mention illegal organization, 'la société rouge', of vampires is taking hold of the city, defying all laws of The Brotherhood, the governing authority of the vampires in the States. The leader of this dangerous... and deadly... society, Vangeline, is a vampire herself who is extremely powerful and permitting her followers to run around creating aberrations. Aberrations are half human/half- vampire beings, controlled exclusively by the vampire who created them.
Nikolena, the ruling vampire of the Directorate, needs someone to go undercover in the dangerous society, someone who can find the secrets to Vangeline's power, and destroy her once and for all. The past two vampires she sent never returned, only to be assumed to have been discovered and sent to their True Deaths. Enter Revelin (Rev) Scott, AKA Sean Ardwolf. He is Nikolena's chosen l'enforcier, who just happens to be resistant to the feminine powers, and is choosen to infiltrate Vangeline's lair to eliminate her. Rev swears he will not fail, reiterating his oft-used motto "No one goes Scott-free."
His partner in this duty is a young human woman, Denice (Deni) Geron, whose brother was one of the aberrations until he disappeared, presumed dead. She has some very incriminating information about la société, information her brother managed to get to her before he met his fate. Deni is reluctant, hating all vampires because of what happened to her brother, and is convinced she will not remain alive once the mission is complete.
Upon being introduced to Rev, she is at first repulsed by him. But as she gets to know him, her feelings change. Heaven forbid, could she actually be falling for the enemy?Read more ›
