NYPD Detective Alec MacAidan has always been good with weird. After all, his life has been a string of the unexplainable. But when an injured man gives him cryptic clues, then turns to dust in front of him, Alec's view on weird is changed forever.
Cronin, a vampire Elder, has spent the last thousand years waiting for Alec. He'd been told his fated one would be a man wielding a shield, but he didn't expect him to be human, and he certainly didn't expect that shield to be a police badge.
Both men, strong-willed and stubborn, are still learning how to cope with the push and pull of being fated, when fate throws them another curveball.
Rumors have spread quickly of turmoil in Egypt. Covens are fleeing with news of a vampire who has a talent like no other, hell-bent on unleashing the wrath of Death.
Alec and Cronin are thrown into a world of weird Alec cannot imagine. What he learned in school of ancient pharaohs and Egyptian gods was far from the truth. Instead, he finds out firsthand that history isn't always what it seems.

I loved the visits to have the bullets made, I laughed out loud. I was perplexed by the way it didn't feel l...
MehThis is my fourth book by the author. Two I've loved, two not so much, including this one. It was just too much history and not enough relationship building for me so by the end when they got down to the sex part I wasn't even interested and skipped it. And sometimes that's the best bit!I liked t...
There were things I loved. The insta-love that was done just right for my tastes, the vampire lore was interesting, and I loved the special-power thing. Also, Alec and Cronin were hot together. On the other hand, I was irked by some stuff too like how "Alec is a cop turned criminal" part of the plot...
