Summary:

Becoming a vampire saved Alyssa from death, but the price was high: the loss of everything and everyone attached to her mortal life. She’s still learning to cope when a surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the friend she’s missed more than anything.Alyssa breaks vampire law by revealing her new, true self to her old friend, a fact which causes strong division in the group that should support her most: her clan. Worse yet, her revelation entangles Fallon in the struggle between vampires and hunters and The Acta Sanctorum is ready to attack again, with a new army of hybrid creations: the Frenzy Soldiers.If Alyssa hopes to survive and keep her mortal friend safe, she’ll have to be willing to make a deal with the enemy, and regain her clan’s support. It will take everyone working together in a precarious truce to fight against the Acta Sanctorum’s new threat.

My Thoughts:

Just when I thought that the sexual tension between Lysander and Alyssa could not get any stronger it does.  Alyssa heads out to hunt on her own and comes face to face with Santino.  This terrifying face that has haunted her since their previous escape.  She does what first comes to though and runs, she ends up in her old familiar coffee house face to face with her best friends, Fallon.  Alyssa has been missing for weeks and despite everything Lysander has told her she tells Fallon the truth only to have Fallon used as bait.  Alyssa finds herself in a horrible place, drained of blood by the Acta Sanctorum and locked in a room with Fallon.  She knows that they mean for her to feed from Fallon but she cannot do so.  Suddenly, Santino comes to her rescue and helps her and Fallon get out.  Lysander is very angry with her but also very concerned about losing his mate.  Together, they all go forward to fight the newest fighters out there to destroy the Vampires! 
 
This was another outstanding expansion on Lysander and Alyssa story.  Katie Salidas has stayed true to the character and only made me more drawn to Lysander in this book.  He has such a dark haunted past and his feeling seem so deep.  Alyssa still appears to be the selfish young girl.  She puts her wants in front of the needs of those vampires closest to her without much though.  Fallon seems to handle all of this craziness with out too much of a passing thought while she is scared she never backs down with I really enjoyed.  
All in all, a great story and I am really looking forward to the next installment!
