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.
I enjoy reading these books and it's an amazing world Ms Saare has created. As a heroine, Rhiannon is very resourceful and dare I say resilient? I'm not really sure a human could really take the punishment that's frequently inflicted on her, even with the regenerative properties of vampire blood but it's always fun to read. Believe me, The Renfield Syndrome, sees Rhiannon getting involved in all sorts of scrapes and if you enjoy action then this book delivers in spades.
Ms Saare is probably better known for her more explicit books under the pen name, Aline Hunter, but there's one or two sexy scenes in this book and here's where I have a problem. Rhiannon seems to be so attractive to just about every guy she meets and frankly I find that a little odd. I would have preferred a little less of reading scenes with men going gaga over her and yes, I can see that her strong personality would appeal to some men, but equally her smart mouth would put many off! I freely admit I personally find her snarky comments amusing and that girl has so many "laws” there's always something new to smile at, but nearly every man she meets wanting to jump into bed with her? No, it just doesn't work for me particularly considering she's supposed to be in a relationship with Disco. Having said that I did enjoy this book and the author took the story in amazing directions that constantly surprised me. I can't wait to read what happens next and think fans of urban fantasy will really enjoy this series.
