Kain led Damien to his tent. “Forgive my intrusion on your time with Jillian. I wanted to tell you one last thing before the fight. Holt nearly mentioned it in the meeting but I stopped him because it wasn’t the time or the place.” “What is it?” Damien replied, curious. “The dark secret of the vampire noble. As it is with us, the vampire nobles and high class have the ability to change into more powerful forms. Unlike lycans however, they only have a single transformation. I have only seen it once in my many years but it is very formidable.” Kain pulled a box out from under a pile of old books and blankets. It was covered in dust as though Kain had been trying to bury the memory. Laying it down before Damien, he opened it, revealing what looked like a talon. “Kain, what is this?” Damien took it in his hands, carefully examining the detail.
"I really liked the way this book introduced the werewolf’s and vampires to the romance genre. Along with Damien not knowing what he is capable of, which makes the leading lady the stronger more powerful one! Anyone who is looking for supernatural romance that ISN’T all about a male vampire getting some weak girl to fall in love with him is going to enjoy this book. Looking forward to book 2!" -- A. Rose
“Kain.” Damien’s voice was a comfortable echo. Warm and reassuring. “Alex. Can you hear me?” Kain opened his eyes, slightly jumping. “Tenebris?” Damien shook his head. “No. It’s me.” “Damien. How?” Damien took Kain’s jacket he was always wearing around his waist and covered his friend with it. “Stay here. Don’t move and don’t die.”
