Heather is a Special Agent for the FBI who has been tracking a serial killer known as the Cross Country Killer for the past three years. The murderer has moved on to New Orleans and so Heather goes there too. What she finds is the typical crime scene but the killer has broken the pattern and suddenly there is a new clue for Heather to follow.

Dante is the talented and beautiful star of the rock band 'Inferno'. He is also rumoured to be the owner of the hot New Orleans place to be 'Club Hell'. His club just happens to be next to the newest murder scene and Heather follows her clues to Dante. She knows that something links him to the killer and when one of his friends also turns up dead she knows she has to find the truth and put an end to the killings.

While Heather follows the clues she finds that Dante is a proper man of mystery. With a juvenile record a mile long and no social security number she finds he spent most of his life in and out of foster homes. When getting close to Dante she finds out he definitely is what his fans believe him to be. A vampire.

The first few chapters of this book were shockingly good and I was grabbed by the story straight away. After that though things went downhill and chapter by chapter I started to wonder if I wanted to carry on. I read this right to the end but I have to admit I struggled alot. Spending a whole week on this one book putting it down after a few chapters and picking it up again...reading other books and going back to this one.

This was a nice debut and it is a nice deep, dark and intense story. However I found the story got too confusing and complicated and the characters became annoying and unlikable. I did like the style and the whole concept was quite refreshing. This is an author I am going to keep watching. Oh and kudos to the author for her use of languages! Especially Welsh...seeing as I am Welsh it was nice to see it being used.

Have you read this one already? Tell me what you thought about it!

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get in to it. I loved this book and found it so good I read it again, and reviewed it again on my blog. I also enjoyed it even more the second time around. I guess diferent things resonate for everyone huh?

To Princess Allie, it's definitely an urban fantasy in my opinion. :)

@ Princess Allie - I guess it is an Urban Fantasy but that is only because I don't know what else I would call it.

@ Sidhe - If we all liked the same things life would be boring and there would be no comments on this topic ;)
