Dearly and Thierry de Bennicoeur have cut short their honeymoon
in Hawaii to attend a mysterious auction in Beverly Hills.
The newly wedded vampires are still in a state of matrimonial
bliss. Thierry is there on business for the Vampire Council
–known as The Ring. The Ring is supposed to make sure
humans never find out that vampires really exist. Thierry
is hoping to have the winning bid on an amulet to make sure
it does not fall into dangerous hands. Atticus Kincade is
also there – he is the head of The Ring. Two of the
original members of The Ring council have been killed so there
is talk of Thierry rejoining the group he formed centuries
is underway and everyone is waiting for the bidding to start.
Sarah heads to the kitchen after a run in with Veronique –
Thierry’s ex-wife. What she finds in the freezer is
a talking head. By the time she returns to Thierry, Sarah
has forgotten the entire incident. Finally the bidding is
underway and all the items are being sold. The last item is
the amulet that interests not only Thierry but Atticus. With
the bidding now over, it turns out that someone has stolen
the amulet. It needs to be returned by dawn or heads will
roll. The magic needs to be restored to the damaged amulet
or the mansion and the occupants will cease to exist. This
is no ordinary treasure hunt, Sarah had better be viligant
or she could lose what is most important to her.
to ponder: Who sent the invitation to the auction? Did Thierry
lie to protect Sarah? Who spiked Thierry’s drink? What
happened to the talking head?
is another bloody romp filled with lots of humor and danger.
I love that Sarah will take on anyone to protect her man.
There is a great mix of characters – I especially enjoy
the quirky ones. This entertaining read soon became a page
turner. I needed to find out what would happen next. So many
twists and turns you would have thought you were on a roller
coaster. The story is well-plotted and keeps moving along
at a steady pace. So if you like your mystery filled with
vampires and other paranormal beings, then you should be reading
From Fear To Eternity.
