Summary: (from goodreads) Darel Ericson of the Dahanavar clan is a rarity among his vampire brethren: he’s an empath, strong enough to occasionally read thought as well as emotion.  For centuries, his power has given the Dahanavar a significant advantage against the machinations of the other vampire families, an advantage which makes Darel both a powerful tool and a highly visible target.
Fortunately for Darel, it is more useful for the heads of the other clans to maintain the centuries-long peace between the houses than to remove him.  But, the cunning and violent head of the House of Nachterret is tired of the truce, and of hiding his presence in the world.  The Nachterret would like nothing more than have free reign over the helpless human cattle upon which they feed. 
Darel, and the human woman he loves, become central to the Nachterret’s scheme to plunge the Houses into all out war.  Darel is ultimately forced to face the question: is one young woman’s life too high a price to pay for peace?

When I began reading this book it was difficult to follow. It’s full of translations, and all these types of different vampire families and their war against each other, which made it difficult to follow/remember who belongs to who and what their stories are in the plot.  However, it’s a very well written book and I enjoyed learning about a whole new world of vampires and their special powers and the story explains all of this through the plot and not any introductions, which I thought was unique. After the beginning, the story started to make more sense and I understood each character’s part, however the descriptions in this book were really long and I could have gone with out that much detail. Overall, while I enjoyed reading this book, it’s not a favorite.
The story begins with Darel, who is an empath and the center of a war between four powerful supernatural families. Darel falls in love with a human girl, Loraine which adds more problems to the current situation. With the families at the very brink of war and his undying love for Loraine, Darel is forced to make a very hard decision.
