The woods have always been full of whispers in Transylvania, of terrors that go back centuries to the legendary Vlad Dracul himself. Ignoring their professor's grave warning—beware those who would prey upon the innocent—several visiting students travel into the forest and disappear. Now their professor, Bryan McAllister, believes that a dark cult is at work—and that their next gathering will happen in America.
When psychologist Jessica Fraser is approached by Bryan for her assistance, she is hesitant. Something about Bryan unnerves Jessica deeply, yet she cannot ignore the incredible pull she feels toward him. Now, as reluctant allies, they unite to seek the truth. The search takes them from the forested mountains to dimly lit clubs in New Orleans' French Quarter, where perversion goes beyond sexual to life-threatening.
And everywhere, whispering on the wind, is the dreaded word vampyr.
It was really fantastic to reread this book! It was utterly fantastic, and entertaining, and just so good! The only downside is, that I just discovered that it's in a series, and the last of that series, and I haven't read any of those, and I probably won't any time soon.
So knowing that Jessica is a vampire, and that she was the dominatrix that was there, and warned the kids off, that makes sense. But there's a bit of a timeline issue that I was having trouble with, is how Jessica could be off doing Jessica things, and then the dominatrix cover, too.
Really enjoyed how it all wrapped up, and how they won. Because Jessica and Bryan have that history, and this is finally letting them be together, so yeah, that was really excellent, and I just loved that ending!
One thing in rereading this book, is that I seem to remember a scene when they're talking about how she has a heartbeat when she shouldn't, since she's a vampire and all. But I couldn't find it this time around, so that was a bit weird!
Really enjoyed reading this book again, it was dark and spooky and excellent!
