Book Three in the Series.
Lissa is alive. She is recuperating from trying to meet the sun. She was punished by the Council and the men who are supposed to love her, let her down.
After a few weeks, Wlodek (head of the Vampire Council) agrees to loan Lissa to the Government, under Tony's supervision. She becomes a bodyguard for several personalities including the President.
Several attempts on their lives are stopped by Lissa's astute decisions.
Back in Europe someone is kidnapping and murdering kids. Lissa gets involved from afar and is able to find the connection that could stop the killer.
Again, Lissa is betrayed in the worst way by someone she trusted and could have loved.
I liked the series but after book 3, I had to take a break. Why? Because I hate to see how people she trusts keep on hurting her. She is developing powers no one else has and she is still treated like a kid. Her relationship with Gavin doesn't completely convince me, and I wish Merrill would show more interest towards her affections. Saying that I will still read the next book in the series.
