Savanah Gentry might think she's just a trainee journalist out to get a story on the amazing magician but her family has a few secrets that will soon come out. When Savanah discovers that the world is rather different than she expected, that Vampires not only exist but may be trying to kill her, she has to decide whether to take up her family's mantle against the evil creatures or whether she and Rane can make something together.
Although there were some elements of danger in this book those aspects of the plot were generally resolved within a couple of pages. This is not a nail-biting, tense thriller as we wait to see if Savanah will survive; instead it appears to be aiming to be the gradual unfolding of a love story between mortal and Vampire. Unfortunately the author's skill with characterisation and pacing wasn't enough to lift this book above fairly mediocre. Rane and Savanah somehow felt like ciphers - we understood their fears and confusions but never really felt them with them. Amanda Ashley's writing style is also fairly plain and the paucity of subclauses in her writing makes it feel rather disjoint at times. The premise of this story was fairly good but the execution was rather a disappointment.

Savanah Gentry has a nose for news, well she better given she s a reporter. But she finds more than she bargained for when she meets the mysterious Santoro the Magnificent. Now if she survives she may have found the man of her dreams.
In this continuation of the Night's vampire series the focus shifts to Rane Cordova ans the mortal woman who steals his heart. Once again Amanda Ashley has produced an interesting and unique story that mixes romance, intrigue and suspense into one exciting read. I am truly looking forward to the next book.
Although this story is part of a series it is very easy to read and does not, like its predecessors, rely on the stories before it to propel the story forward. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to pick up this book and be able to dive right in with no heavy reference to the earlier stories. This book can stand on its own as well as being part of a great series.

This is the fourth book in the Children of the Night series.
Until I did my research for this review, I did not know this was part of a series. There were a few times, in reading, that I had the passing thought that it would be nice to know more about the other characters, but the loss of that other story did not prevent this story from being complete.
I loved Rane and Savannah. I was actually sad to finish this book and say good-bye to a couple that fought minimally, but more so loved, worked, and learned together, as adults, and without malice to one another. I would love to read more from this author.
