I am Chief Enforcer for the Vampire Council.
In nearly two hundred fifty years, I've seen just about everything.
Until I was proven very, very wrong.
The peace treaty between vampires and werewolves is relatively new and extremely fragile. After a werewolf's body turns up in a Texas coastal swamp, drained of blood and with fang marks on its neck, Adam Chessman, the Vampire Council's Chief Enforcer, is dispatched to investigate.
The local pack wants Adam dead, in retribution for their loss.
The local pack is the least of Adam's worries.
With the help of an extremely unusual shapeshifter, Adam is forced to hunt the impossible. It isn't just the peace treaty between paranormal races that's at stake. Ultimately, all of mankind could be destroyed.
A caution: If you've not read any of Connie Suttle's other books you might find yourself lost but if you're very open minded and love a good Sci-Fi/Fantasy, you'll love this series from this first book.
What I liked: I'm so glad we are finally getting the story behind the Saa Thalarr. They've interested me since they were first introduced in Ms Suttle's Blood Destiny Series. They are so mysterious and although they feature prominently is Hope and Vengeance, there are still many unanswered questions.
I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Adam too. This is such a completely different side from what we see of him in the other series. So much back story of all the characters is shared in Hope and Vengeance, you're gonna love it.
In hindsight, I now know why a few characters rubbed me the wrong way in the Blood Destiny, High Demon and God Wars series. No, I can't mention names because it would really spoil things and might color your own opinions of those characters.
What I didn't like: Ms Suttle's writing style is not for everyone, but if you've been reading her stories from the very beginning, you'll just take it in stride. I've grown very used to it and completely enjoy it.
I'm still and will probably always be in awe of the worlds Ms Suttle has created. Her content and other editing is some of the best I've seen. Kudos to both Ms Suttle and Joe for such high quality self published books!! (I've made it a game to find any content editing problems and have come up empty handed so far)
This e-book is $4.99 at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble
