About the Book:
Vampires, and werewolves, and demons, oh my.

Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she’s about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.

Unfortunately, time changes a lot of things; including those most trusted around her. When she’s faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she’ll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.

After all, when it’s all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul.

My Review:
So, I’ve just recently come into enjoying the paranormal-ish novels, so when the opportunity arose to review a new book by a new-to-me author, I took it. It sounded quite interesting and that was a plus. When I sat down to read, however, I wasn’t blown away like I wanted to be.

Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s still a fairly good novel. I enjoyed Rhiannon’s character very much. She was quite the, um, well, very intriguing. I like the way she brought out the action in the story and the way she was created. She had flaws, but yet she still fill her role perfectly.

Rhiannon’s story is very futuristic. She’s sent forward to 2112, and encounters interesting things….vampires, werewolves, and a disease called the Renfield Syndrome. Put those things together, along with some romance and you’ve got a roller coaster of a ride with this novel.

While I enjoyed reading Rhiannon’s story, I came in on it with this, book 2, in the Rhiannon’s Law series. I think I would have appreciated it more and understood more about Rhiannon’s trip to the future, had I read book 1, Dead, Undead or Somewhere in Between. All in all, this was a 3 Book worthy novel, and one that I encourage all fantasy lovers to try. J.A. Saare has some beautiful talent for writing, and I do plan on going back and reading book 1, followed by this one again, so I have a better understanding of Rhiannon’s story.
