Constance Moore is taken to the Castle shortly after rising
from the dead, never becoming the true, powerful vampire
she could be. Instead, she lives her life in the walls of a
prison as a servant to a wizard and a mother to an Incubus.
Some believe the future of the Castle can be saved if her
son is sacrificed, which will keep the walls from tumbling
down around them. Constance is confident that her only hope
is to change into a full vampire to protect her family, but
she needs human blood to do so, which is very uncommon
within the walls of her home. Her hope for the future is
tossed at her feet, but she quickly underestimates the
stranger, even after he dispatches one of the powerful
guards. Could this stranger be her savior, after all?
This second book in The Dark Forgotten series is a unique
blend of paranormal beings with a strong sense of survival
to live in the human world and loyalty among unlikely
friends. I enjoyed the quick-paced plot and look forward to
reading more in this series.
