Summary: Releasing The Demons
Blaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren't over yet. Five years after Blaze was maimed by Cyrus Chimola, a powerful vampire with a penchant for torture, he’s still trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered mercenary with the ability to bend fire to his will and to see in infrared, Blaze’s mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When Chimola and his crew return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, Blaze is forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.
Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie has made it her life’s goal to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. When she brings in Blaze Knight for suspected murder, she discovers he’s not only innocent, he isn't a man at all—he's a half-vampire hybrid working with a band of brothers for the U.S. military. Valerie has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she quickly falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t seem to let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she's ever known.
Now this is the way to start a series. There is nothing better than a book which is more story, than sex. Yes, we all like hot sex, and this book has some very hot sex, but the sex is just a small part of this awesome story, which grabs you from the very first paragraph. You’re intrigued by Blaze Knight and just want to know as much as you can about him, then enter Valerie Medeiros, and before long you’re wanting these two very strong people to fall for each other and when they do, the sparks start flying. The love story is truly the back story of this series. It’s more about the Hybrids and their fight with the vampires.
I loved this new take on vampires and the Hybrids; it's new and refreshing. The story keeps you reading from the second you start the book to the end, when you say awe, come on there so much more to learn, then you remember this is book one of a series, and you go YES. Now I’ve got to sit and wait for who knows how long to read the next book in this awesome series. I can’t wait to see whose adventure into the night we get to share in. This is an adventure I’m looking forward to.
