Seven years ago, Dr Shea O'Halloran experienced an unexpected and horrendous pain unlike anything she had ever known. It felt as if she were being tortured. Eventually the pain disappeared, but Shea never forgot. She has since devoted her life to trying to understand the cause of the rare genetic blood disorder that is slowly killing her. The answers to some of Shea's questions start to reveal themselves when she is approached by two men, who accuse her of being a vampire. Shea runs for her life and - following a feeling she can't explain - her desperate wanderings lead her to Romania. The ancient one known as Jacques Dubrinsky can explain. Seven years ago, Jacques was captured, tortured and buried alive by several humans and a Carpathian betrayer. The years of extreme pain and lack of sustenance that followed have nearly driven Jacques insane. He has been using what is left of his powers to psychically draw Shea to the region. But is Shea to be his healer or his prey?

Surprisingly i loved this book. I wasn't a huge fan of the first book. I thought it was too long and just a little too... I don't know the right word.. just too much I guess. I don't know. I kinda love that Jacque is crazy and that Shea is the only one that can calm him. I love the whole life ma...
One of my top Authors. Awesome series. Always wanting more.
Just like the first book. I started reading and fell into the book. Jacques was delicious. I can't help my love of the tortured ones. Shea proved worthy. Strong independent loyal. Over all. Fantastic
Jacques was kidnapped and tortured, left for dead seven years ago. Shea is the only one who can hear and feel him, and travels from her home in the US to Europe and the Carpathian mountains, unable to resist the urge to reach him. A bit dark but a great read.
