'Intense, dark, sexy . . . Looking for a new addiction? Go no further.' - Devon Monk Spread throughout the dark corners of our world lies the Shadow World, a society of vampires who feed off the living. In Austin, Texas, one woman's madness will drive her into a world that few people ever see-or even know exists . . . Shortly after she picked up a guitar, Miranda Grey conquered the Austin music scene with a newfound ability to psychically manipulate her audience's emotions. But as her powers outgrow her control, her mind is increasingly invaded by haunting secrets and overwhelming sadness. Unable to look anyone in the eye, Miranda's fast approaching the edge of insanity-with no one to catch her fall . . . When he outlawed killing humans, David Solomon, Prime of the South, ignited a civil war among Austin's vampires. His sympathy for mortals angers the old guard who refuse to control their violent urges. David has his hands full with the growing insurgency, but he takes in a broken-down woman, a musician in need of supernatural guidance. He doesn't know that Miranda Grey has the power to change his world as well . . .

There was a lot of politics in the world Sylvan created and it was very interesting. I really enjoyed learning about the vampires and how they run things. Everything was really thought out well and was a more unique take on vampire culture and politics. However, I never really felt a strong connection between Miranda and David; it felt more like Miranda was just grateful for David saving her life and giving her a purpose. For me there just wasn't enough scenes establishing their mutual attraction and building on their relationship.
