Discover powerful winged vampire warriors, the Guardians of Ascension, and the women they’re sworn to protect!
Warrior Gideon swore he would never see Elise Jordan again even though they’d been passionate lovers for two years. Her human nature couldn’t survive in his ascended vampire world; she would be vulnerable to attack on every front if he tried to continue a relationship with her. But when Elise starts having visions of the future of Gideon’s sister hunted by death vampires, Gideon can no longer ignore that Elise is in her Call to Ascension, her call to become a vampire. Though determined to keep her at bay, the infamous breh-hedden, an all-consuming vampire bonding ritual, wraps him up tight and demands that he protect Elise. As he strives to keep her alive during her Rite of Ascension, love threatens to overwhelm his carefully ordered, war-weary world.
Reader, please note: BRINK OF ETERNITY was published under a different cover, same title, in July of 2011. The content is the same.
As I have admitted before, I grew tired of the vampire genre when they started to sparkle. In fact, I stopped reading much paranormal but I’m slowly coming around to the genre again. Ms. Roane is one of those reasons.
Her vampires aren’t the typical blood sucking, rich, Alpha, beating their chests that are being written right now. Her vamps have fangs, wings, warriors and move between the modern world (Earth) and their own second Earth. If you are lost already…don’t worry; it’s explained very well in the book. In fact, after reading Gideon’s story, this is a world that I want to live in.
Elise and Gideon have been lovers for over 2 years. Their weekly tryst is hot, passionate and swoon worthy. Trouble is that they have broken it off because Gideon doesn’t think that Elise could survive in his world. Little does he know that Elise has been keeping a secret from him and not only can she survive it, she is due to become a vampire herself.
After having dreams of Gideon’s sister being kidnapped, Elise has to tell him the truth about herself. She is set to become a vampire herself and she has started her ascension. How does he protect her from the ascension and find his sister at the same time?
Lord, I didn’t want this book to end. I feel in a deep stupor when the book ended. From the first page to the last, I devoured it. I became emerged in Ms. Caris world of vampires and I didn’t want it to end. I think you would too. Between all the fighting, love and O.M.G moments, one has to wonder if Gideon and Elise will make it.
Please note that in this world, the vamps don’t sparkle but are fierce lovers, warriors and will do anything to protect the people that they love.
I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it! Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing. I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires. I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well. Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge. I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.
