Hosted by the Contessa della Trieste, an opulent Carnevale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn for American book critic Jordan Riley. As festivity turns into frenzy, Jordan is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a wolf. But was the mayhem she witnessed - the blood, the fangs, the screams - truly just entertainment, or something far more sinister? From a deconsecrated Venetian church to a secret society in New Orleans, Jordan is led on a nightmare journey to the razor's edge of reality. Her mysterious saviour is always a shadow behind her, both tormenting and tantalising her, as Jordan discovers a world of predators and survivors, a new order of vampires - and an eternal hunger that threatens to consume her.

The third book in the Alliance Vampires. Although better than the previous book, it is still not worthy of 4 moons for me. I read this book because of the preview in the previous book. The book starts out great, very suspenseful. I really was into it. then it just sort of slows to an almost boring read. I had to put it down then force myself to return after a few days. Once I read on, it did get better and I started to enjoy parts of the book. I like the characters better in this story. The villains are even better and more believable. the back story for Ragnor is also a better one. Overall this book is much better just still lacking that wow factor. Not a must read just at good read.
