As Enforcer for Leo Pellissier, Master of the City, Jane Yellowrock hates vampire politics, but she can't get away from them. The European Vampires want what Leo has, and they won't be nearly as diplomatic or reasonable. But they're devious, ruthless, and they'll do anything to get what they want. And now that Jane has a family she's brought together, she is about to discover how much she has to lose, and how far she'll go to protect the life she's made. As always, I enjoy this strong, multi-dimensional female character. She's far from perfect, but she's so wonderfully human. With plenty of action and so much at stake, this is a book whose pages almost turn themselves.

If I had any complaint about the series, it would be the ineptitude of the "good" vampires in this installment of the series. Shouldn't a "Master of the City" be able to protect his own home and his own people at least a little bit? Even with some bad apples in the ranks, it seemed as if Leo should have been better at taking care of himself and his people if he deserves the title he holds. But it's a minor quibble and certainly didn't keep me from loving the book. Now if I could just get myself a werewolf. They seem to be really useful.
