Olivia is a vampire bored with modernity. Tattooist, boyfriend, black-metal singer: everyone you don’t love tastes the same. Since the fall from Eden, she has hungered for love, but fed only on desire. Dominic O’Shaughnessy is a neuroscientist plagued by impossible visions.
When his research and her despair collide in Ireland’s L’Otel Mathillide – a subterranean hell of beauty, demons and dreams – rationalist and angel unite in a clash of desire and damnation that threatens to destroy them both.

With vampire books as far as the eye can see in every bookstore it’s become difficult to find a truly unique plot, character, etc in the genre. Skyler White has created a masterpiece with a fresh view of immortals. The use of angels is fascinating to say the least.
Olivia is a vampire but not just any old plain jane vampire from stories past, she is a fallen angel! I found her to be a strong and entertaining character that could draw anyone in for a bite. You can feel her needs, wants, and really connect with her.
Dominic surprised me as the story progressed. I was happy to see him be more aggressive instead of being the average stereotypical shy, geeky researcher type. His confusion of what he might be created a page turning frenzy.
White created an awesome dark fantasy with most enticing characters to draw you into the dark hours of the night. This is a spellbinding read if ever I have come across one.
